TILI November Beauty Box

I recently took the plunge and cancelled my Glossybox subscription after being left disappointed with the contents of numerous boxes. I decided it was £13.95 I could spend elsewhere, and the products I was receiving each month were less than impressive.

I purchased a TILI beauty box in September and absolutely loved it, so when November's edition launched there was no hesitation in my beauty obsessed mind. TILI stands for 'Try It, Love It', and there's no commitment with a subscription, you simply buy it via the QVC site. TILI don't release monthly boxes either, they seem to be around every couple of months, and that suits me just fine as they are most definitely worth the wait.

This November box was just as impressive, if not more, than the previous box I had received. Here's a rundown of the products included:

One of the stand out products in the box would be the Nails Inc nail polish. It's a rose gold shade named Rose Bellini, which is apparently a TILI exclusive. It's the perfect shade for the party season, and festive without being tacky. This is a full sized bottle too, and Nails Inc polishes usually retail at around £15.

The next product is an exfoliating mask from the brand TULA. I haven't actually heard of this brand, but apparently it contains a probiotic that helps to cleanse and remove dead skin cells, leaving soft and glowing skin. I love anything that leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, so this is already a winner for me. The full sized pot retails at £38 on QVC, however the tube in the box is 14g which is quite generous.

The box also contains a Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil, Oil. It promises to seal in shine, and volumise hair without the greasiness assocaiated with oils. I have used it a couple of times already, and it definitely doesn't weigh hair down, leaves it silky soft, and very swishy. This is a 30ml bottle, the full sized bottle is 60ml and costs £14.

Another brand I haven't heard of is NB Labs, and this box contains a Glow Boost serum. Added to moisturiser, it improves skin's texture and helps with uneven skintone. The brand creates many different serums to deal with various skin issues, and seem quite science based. The bottle I received is 5ml, and the full size 10ml retails for £19.50.

Laura Geller have thrown in a mini mascara this time around. Lash Boss is a volumising, lengthening, and curling mascara, so I am very excited to try it. I have heard great things about the brand's mascaras, and this is just the perfect size. The brush is interesting, one side has really long spikes, whereas the other side is very short and fine, so there must be a method to the application. It's a 4ml tube, with the full size, 14ml, priced at £19.

TILI have included a liquid highlighter in the form of PIXI's Glow Booster. It's in the shade 'White Pearl' and gives a subtle but healthy sheen to skin. It would actually be lovely on collar bones or down the front of shins, to give a gorgeous, healthy gleam. The tube is a generous 12ml, however I can't find the product on any site as a single tube, it seems to only be included in gift sets, so I'm unsure of the retail price.

When I first started watching Jaclyn Hill on YouTube years ago, I remember seeing her talk about Purity face wash. This box contains a 30ml bottle, and I can vouch for everything Jaclyn said about it. It's a gel consistency, that melts off make up, and leaves my skin so soft. It has a lovely relaxing scent to it, is gentle enough to be used around the eyes, and doesn't create a lather so it isn't stripping skin of its natural oils. You can buy it from Boots for £8.50 for 90ml, and once this bottle is finished I may consider buying it again.

I love a good scrub, especially as I wear a lot of fake tan. There's a Decleor 1000 Grains Body Exfoliator in this box, in a 50ml tube. It claims to exfoliate and soften, containing various oils to leave the skin smooth and silky. I feel like it's a posh body scrub, and it smells delicious. The full size 200ml tube is priced at £28.

The box also contains a 30ml pot of Taya Red Clay Naturals Miracle Balm. It apparently has various uses, including a pre-shampoo treatment, overnight mask, or a pre-styling product to maintain moisture levels. It's thick but not sticky, so I'd imagine it wouldn't be too heavy on the hair. I tried to suss the product out on the QVC site for a price, but it's currently unavailable.

Korres have included a full size Lily Blossom shower gel (£8) in the box, and it smells amazing. I've tried a few Korres products before and have always been impressed. I've been using this ever since I received my box, and I love that the scent isn't too overpowering, but you still feel fresh.

Lastly, I was treated to a Erno Laszlo Firm & Lift Sheet Mask. I am undecided about sheet masks, as I always feel really cold sitting with a lump of freezing material on my face. Saying that, this one seems quite high-end, as to purchase just one mask is £14. It contains algae and grapefruit extracts, along with argan oil, so I can't wait to slap this on my face!

There you go, a (not so) quick rundown of all the products included in the November TILI box. You may be wondering the price for all of these luxurious products? It's an unbelievable £20, with free postage. I personally feel that is a total bargain considering the brand names and prices of the products alone. This box really blows other beauty boxes out of the water, and the fact it doesn't require a subscription and you can see what you are buying on the site before you spend your hard-earned cash makes it even better.

It would make such a great Christmas present as there's a mix of both beauty, skin care, and hair care products. I also feel that the contents would be useful over the party season, so go on, treat yourself!
