    See http://www.allboxedup.co/adventureinbeauty/

    Just be slightly wary if you need it urgently. All Boxed Up seems to have a bit of a track record of taking longer to deliver than some purchasers would hope, judging by the the Beauty Box and Rituals Box threads on this site - but they do deliver, so no big deal if you don't need something 'tomorrow'.

    Contents listed as:

    Bellapierre Powder Dome Brush (RRP £29.99) the ideal beauty tool for perfect coverage
    Yu-Be Moisturising Cream (RRP £13.50) no. 1 selling skincare product in Japan that is a cult favourite with celebrities
    Teeez Nail Lacquer (RRP £10.95) take your nails to high gloss heaven with the hottest Spring shade, Toxic Tangerine
    CK Lipgloss (RRP £12.00) perfectly pink/nude shade of luxurious conditioning lipgloss
    and
    Bellapierrre Shimmer Powder (RRP £12.99) a wonderfully versatile loose powder that can bring a shimmer to face, lips and nails.

    I didn't get one this time but I got two different mystery boxes last time they had some. The boxes were themed I think by colour and the price was different, so buying two different ones I thought I would receive different items. I was dissapointed as I got items sold in the latest boxes which I felt they couldn't sell otherwise and I got a couple of repetitions in both boxes. I know that things may have changed and I hope I am wrong!

    I am curious to see what people received!

    I've always thought these bundle-type mystery boxes where you have little or zero idea of what is going to arrive is just about their getting rid of all the odds and ends they could not get rid of. I know it's a negative and cynical way of looking at it and that there could be other reasons for the left over stock (eg not enough to go around in new orders so held back..etc) but I can't help thinking I'm more often right when I read back on others reports here. I hope those that did order get what they want and hope not as many people are disappointed this time.

    I totally understand your point, and I also appreciate that what one person likes, another doesn't, but I sometimes get them just for the surprise and have always found that if there's something I don't like, I can pass them on. I ordered a £19.99 mystery box a few weeks ago and it arrived today. I got: a huge 1000ml Pecksniffs lavender & white tea moisturising shower gel, time bomb hand cream, senspa eye cream, 2 x Leighton Denny nail varnishes (mink & beige) and zelens lip glaze (rouge). I'll use everything except the lip glaze - too red for me - but I know exactly who will appreciate it. It's a good quality brand I've bought before. So all in all I'm happy. I know any mystery bundle will be a gamble, so anyone not prepared to risk it shouldn't order. I don't think the things in the bundles are hard-to-shift though; they're all products currently on sale, nothing discontinued, and all from good brands.

    I over-rode my suspicions/sense, and ordered the £9.99 box. What cheek! A cheap and nasty make-up bag, a nail polish, a cracker filler sized pot of sparkles, and, best of all, a small bag of cotton wool discs.

    I have been happy with a couple of their large collections, but this has confirmed my doubts about mystery boxes. Straight to the charity shop with this lot.
