Hi, my name’s Elle, and I am a beauty hoarder.

Seriously though, my love for beauty is as real as my love for Harvey Specter – Dear Suits, can you return to my TV screen now please and thanks – and with my love of beauty hoarding comes a complete and utter inability to not want to constantly try new products. Haircare, skincare, makeup, tanning products, you name it… I wanna slap it on my face/body and reap in the glory of all things beauty.

(Reap in the glory of all things beauty… that might be one of the strangest things I’ve ever said. Let’s pretend that didn’t happen.)

I recently heard about a beauty box that was different to a lot of the others that I’d tried and loved before and it immediately got me wanting/needing to know more. Said box is the Tili beauty box from QVC, said reasons why I am completely obsessed with it? Grab a cuppa and a snack (I’d say digestive biscuit but if you’ve got time for a bacon sarnie then you do you, boo!) and prepare for a rave.

First things first, the Tili beauty box has no subscription service. Yep, you read that right, you don’t need to sign up to a minimum amount of boxes, you can just go right in and buy the one. I love this because as someone with far too many products and an embarrassing love for beauty, as much as there’s a lot I’d love to try, there’s also a lot that I’m really not interested in. So I struggle to commit to subscription boxes because you never know if you’re going to love the majority of the products. 

It’s a seasonal box released 4 times a year – another thing I love as you can really tell that a lot of thought has gone into the box – and genuinely always contains such a beautiful variety of products covering all bases. 

I’ll get into the products any moment now but one final brag for Tili… the rough total of the contents of the box comes to around £70, but you can buy the box for only £20 which means the value for money is insanely incredible [insert hand clapping emojis here].

Now, onto the box…

Julien Farel Anti aging shampoo and conditioner
So this stuff is a little bit game changing. I had never even considered that my hair could age until these products came into my life, and it’s one of those scenarios where you didn’t realise you needed them until you had them. They are a luxuriously rich, colour safe shampoo and conditioner duo which magically manages to be super lightweight but also extremely moisturising (clever little thing). I’d highly recommend if your hair is looking a little lacklustre and dull as it really gives it that added oomph. God I love a bit of oomph in my hair *insert sassy Beyonce-esque hair swish here*

Ultrasun Anti Aging SPF 30
Ultrasun, it’s a blimmin classic isn’t it. This brand has been in my household since I was teeny tiny so it’s always a really nostalgic product for me. It’s a classic, it does what it says on the tin, this one in particular is perfect for me as it’s travel friendly (yasssss to travel friendly items) and is also amazing for your skin. With the latest skincare advances and research, this delivers all day protection preventing UVA induced photo aging and effectively neutralises skin damaging free radial skin activity.

Yep, I have no idea what half of that means either but I do know that it’s a frickin incredible SPF.

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara
The eyelash gods were looking down on us with this one… Benefit Rollerlash. If you haven’t tried it, you need to. From the very first time I used it I declared my love and never looked back. It lifts the lashes, curls them so beautifully and really gives all the volume too. It’s one of those that you just need to try to realise how good it is!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream
This stuff, is so, so good. So good. Ok, let’s rewind and say sentences that are actually helpful. The IT cosmetics cc+ cream is a beautiful, full coverage cream containing SPF 50+. Developed with plastic surgeons, there’s no wonder it’s a Number 1 best selling, award winning product. The only slight drawback is that you might not get the shade you need as it’s medium that is in the box, but you’ll be able to see the stunning texture and coverage and can always mix it with a slightly darker/lighter concealer to make it the perfect shade if need be.

Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan
I have pretty much raved about this tan to anyone and everyone that will listen to me over the last few months. I am the laziest human when it comes to self tan. I hate the stickiness, I hate the smell, and ultimately the tan never lasts for long enough to justify sleeping in a sweaty stinky mess.

How sexy of me, I’d always wondered why I was still single but this is suddenly making things for clearer for me [insert cry laughter/yes I’m tragic emojis here].

The Ten minute tan is different. You apply it as you would a normal self tan, leave for 10 minutes, then wash off in the shower. Over the next few hours the colour will start to develop and by the next morning you will feel all kinds of bronzed goddess. I for one am all about that life.

Alpha H Liquid gold, Rose limited edition
A rose edition of the ultimate skincare classic, Alpha H is a glycolic acid based product which is incredible for reducing scars, acne breakouts, fine lines, age spots, pigmentation. You name it, it does it. I was so happy to see this in the Tili box because it really is a cult classic skincare item that I think so many will love. 

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish cleanser
If you haven’t tried the Liz Earle Cleanse and polish then get off of my blog right now! (ONLY JOKING PLEASE STAY I LOVE YOU REALLY!) But this cleanser seriously is the original and in my opinion, the best. I’ve been using it on and off for at least 8 years now and it’s the one I always go back to. A beautiful creamy, nourishing, extremely gentle cleanser that just feels so soothing and moisturising on the skin. It removes every scrap of makeup, doesn’t dry out your skin at all, smells like a gift from the gods… UGH THIS STUFF IS SO GOOD!

Erno Laszlo Cleansing Oil and bar
Out of the whole box I feel like this might be a brand that you’ve heard of the least. Erno Laszlo isn’t huge in the UK, however as a very lucky beauty blogger I’d already been able to try some pieces from the range which is why I almost did a Tom Cruise jump on Oprah’s sofa kinda movement when I saw this inside. The cleansing oil is an absolute dream, gentle but removes every last scrap of makeup, and the bar is perfect for quick cleanses in the morning. The reason I love this most though is that they are both so incredibly perfect for travelling. As you can see, each product is small (but lasts a lifetime) and can easily be put in your hand luggage liquids etc. Plus they are just so damn cute aren’t they?

No, just me that finds mini beauty products outrageously cute? Oh, Ok then, awkward…

OPI Fiji Collection nail polish

Last but most definitely not least, we have this beautiful nail polish from the OPI Fiji collection called Do you sea what I sea (see what they did there, see what they did there!) and oh my goodness I can’t get enough. Firstly, the formulation of OPI polishes is perfection. Super long lasting, a beautiful even finish, very opaque… but it’s this colour that I honestly can’t get enough of for summer (looks especially sassy on toes). However the rest of the collection is equally as babe’in so if you don’t get this one, you’ll definitely get a beautiful shade perfect for the months. For me, nothing beats a great mani/pedi that you know will last you for ages so it’s well worth getting your hands on.

Annnnnd take a breath. Is it just me that almost gets a little bit exhausted after raving for days about beauty products they’re passionate about? To wrap this up though, I genuinely couldn’t recommend the Tili Box enough. It still blows me away that it’s just £20 but you get so many incredible products inside, all from such stunning brands too. Also, because it’s not a subscription service, it makes for the perfect one off gift for a beauty loving friend (and of course, yourself, but that goes without saying right?)

Available from QVC, you can grab yourself a little box of dreams – brb while I vom at my level of cheese – here.

I’d love to know if you’ve ever tried the Tili box before? What are your thoughts on beauty boxes? I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂

As always, thanks so much for reading!


This post was sponsored by Tili but all thoughts, photos and extreme love of beauty products, my own.

    I looooove the Tili box! it's basically the only beauty box subscription type thing that I'll buy because I hate having to sign up for a certain number on months! I also love how all the boxes come in different pretty colours and I keep them and use them as storage boxes after! xo

    • Yes, so with you there lovely, such a fab idea isn't it. I love it!!

      I dont know how to really thank Dr. Keke Odin for what he did for me. My Name is Anita Kelly from Los Angeles, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster. At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr KEKE ODIN told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to KEKE ODIN. You can contact him through the following means

    I love the sound of this! I've never subscribed to a beautybox because of the fact that you always have to commit to certain amount of them, and it always put me off a little bit. BUT, as this sounds pretty affordable, maybe I'll finally give a beauty box a try! 🙂 x

  3. Oh no I'm a massive sucker for mini beauty products as well, actually anything mini and I'm pretty much sold (why are they so cute?!). Love the sound of the It Cosmetics CC cream as well, definitely want to check that out in a lighter shade for me!

    This definitely sounds like my kind of beauty box! I can't really be dealing with the whole subscription thing because some months I just might not have the room or money for them and I don't like being stuck having to get it. So buying just one when I actually want to is perfect! And yes I also find mini beauty products outrageously cute haha xxx

  5. OH MY this box sounds like it needs to be in my life RIGHT NOW! Love all of the products included, and the fact that it's not got a subscrition service and only £20 has definitely sold me on the idea! Definitely going to get myself one! Thank you for sharing this with us lovely! 🙂

    I have 5 girl cousins and I always struggle what to get them for treats, they love all things beauty, so these are a must.
    Also, how cool is it that you don't have a subscription ?

  7. Anonymous says:

    What a great box, £70 worth of products for £20. Just ordered one online, excited to receive it

  8. I like the fact that there's no subscription and it looks like there are some great products. I'm a fan of Alpha H too


  9. This sounds SO perfect, I'm a HUGE Liz Earle fan and adore their Hot Cloth Cleanser, so good! Also a BIG fan of Benefit Roller Lash and love a travel sized product.. definitely going to check this beauty box out 🙂

  10. Call Me Amy says:

    I much prefer boxes that you can buy as a one off as opposed to monthly subscriptions, they tend to feel a little bit more special, plus (as proved with this one) there tends to be better stuff in them too!

  11. It is important to take care of your skin. Beauty demands a lot from you and it's your duty to take care of your skin. Always use good products for your skin that gives you the good results too. As we all know that after 30's age our skin face aging signs problems. So it is important to avoid that signs of problem. Use lifecell all-in-one anti aging cream that will helps you to avoid that signs from your skin.

  12. I've only very recently heard about this box, but it looks and sounds great! The products you've received all sound amazing and who wouldn't be persuaded by your rave reviews!? Benefit Roller Lash mascara is such a great classic and I use it all the time xo

    Good new my bf is back.. I was having serious relationship problems with my bf and it has gotten to a point of him moving out to his friend’s apartment. everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr happy by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood bf; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and a day after the spell my bf called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr happy. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. Please my advise to every one looking for relationship help, marriage help, get and fix your broken home, is to contact Dr happy the real Africa spell caster now on………….. for more about him and his love spell how it work fast, visit his web site….. and for mobile call or…..

    This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH OF APRIL 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful great spell caster called DR Omoluyi on the forum. I never believed it, because I've never heard nor learnt anything about magic before. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about spells, not until i visited ( ) and behold he did it for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me within 12 to 16 hours just as I have read on the forum.. I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging me for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Omoluyi, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. Visit him today via Email and Website on ( ) or [ ]. Am Lori Dante by name.

  17. Your skin is going to be there for life. So you might as well take the time to get to know it. Every single skincare aliment has some product on the market but generally identifying your skin type will help point you in the right direction. This way you know the type of products that are designed for your skin type and what ingredients or product types work best for you.

    Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : call +2348133873774 about his service and web site:
