She Said Beauty Box July

Hello,
I've had a really bad couple of days where I've been feeling ill and worn down and to top it all off, today I found out that I didn't get the job that I was interviewed for on Tuesday. I'm so upset about that, it was the perfect job for me and I could have done so so well. Makeup jobs are so hard to get.

Anyway, on to something more positive! Yesterday I received my July She Said Beauty box and it was another great offering; I actually got 4 full sized products this month! So here's what I got:
So far I haven't been disappointed by any of the She Said Beauty boxes which is a good sign, especially whilst Glossy Box is having trouble with people being so unhappy, so fingers crossed that She Said Beauty won't follow the trend and go down hill any time soon.
Skin care:
Ice Crystals Anti-Aging Prep and Polish 1.ml
This is the one sample in the box that I was disappointed by. I haven't tried the product yet but the sample is the size you'd expect to get free in a magazine and is only worth around 50p but in a box where the rest of the products are great, I can't complain too much.

Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser 30ml
I was excited to see this in my box because my skin has been playing up a bit in the last few days from stress and illness so its been nice to add this to my routine. I've found it makes my skin feel nice and soft and clean and to be honest I think I would consider repurchasing in the future.
Tools:
A slight change this month as two of the items in my box were beauty tools rather than samples.
S File from Tom Pellereau
I've been fascinated by these files since seeing them in Sainsburys when I was working there so it was great to find one in the box. I've only used it once and found it strange to be using a curved file but I think that with a bit of getting used to the new shape this could be a holy grail product.
The Vintage Cosmetics Company
I have to say that I wasn't wowed by this product. First up the packaging, whilst pretty on the outside, inside the presentation was definitely lacking. The curler had just been placed in the box and rattles around a bit. I haven't used this so far because I have long curly lashes naturally so I tend to only use curlers to blend in false lashes or when doing other peoples makeup. But the quality seems good and I've been impressed with the rest of their products that I've tried.
Makeup:
Miners Blush and Bronzer Blend
This product was definitely my favourite in this months box. The combination of the soft bronze and the pinky shaded blush work perfectly together and on my fair skin they look just right. The powder is lovely and silky smooth and I've found that the colour is beautifully buildable. This is exactly what I was looking to buy for summer so I've been saved £4.99

Finally, this months extra was a Debenhams beauty card. I thought this was a little cheeky as you can just go into Debenhams and have one forced upon you for free, I would have rather had the tiny skin care sample as an extra and tried something new but ho hum, the rest of the box was great anyway. As I work in Debenhams I've already got one so this was passed on to my mum.

Over all, another great box and All of the products will get used up which makes it worth the money :)
What did you think of this months box? Are you still impressed with She Said Beauty?
