Review: Glamming It Up With PowderPocket

First up, apologies that I didn't bring you January's review. Time just flew away from me, but I will say that I was so impressed I continued my subscription and have no intentions to cancel anytime soon.


For those who have followed my blog for a long time you will know I used to be subscribed to Glossybox and cancelled with them back in December. The reason for this was because I found my money was going to waste on the same products and poor delivery time, so as a result the excitement went pretty quick. I love getting a surprise box and trying out new products so when I heard of PowderPocket and that they were Irish I knew that I was in for a real treat.


This months box was all about glamour and with it being Oscar season it was very apt! Delivery has been really swift on both occasions arriving by courier and me opening the door to the delivery man with sheer excitement.

The box itself is black and on both occasions the PowderPocket logo has been different colours (I love little details like that). The products this month were wrapped in glam gold paper just for added glitz.

Now onto the products..........

Herra Protect Hair Perfume: 


This is a finishing product for your hair to make it smell fabulous but also to protect against daily pollution and UV rays. It locks in moisture without making your hair feel weighed down.  A full size at €29.50 is a little expensive and as my sample was a little fiddly I got nothing out of it. That is no fault of PowderPocket it was all me opening it and spraying it by accident in the wrong direction. Full size €29.50

Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Eye Mask:


This got me all excited when I saw it as I have heard great things about it recently. I have yet to try this as I want to have a pamper night and use it then. It is a 15 minute express eye wrinkle mask to instantly reduce the appearance of visible lines and wrinkles. It contains pure retinal micro-infusion technology to treat your skin quickly and soothe away dryness and wrinkles. It is recommended to use 2 per week but at €63.00 for a pack of 12 I'm not sure I would want to part with my cash.

Jessica Brilliance Top Coat:


This is just what I needed! I have used this twice already and love the high gloss finish it gives and it really is super fast at drying. I definitely would repurchase and would love to try other colours in the range. I also really liked the brush which made for a really great and quick application. Full size €13.95.

The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream:


You can never go wrong with products from The Body Shop so I was super delighted to see this shower cream and it's one I haven't tried before so even better. I can't get enough of this and will be repurchasing this soon. It is leaving my skin really soft and moisturised and it smells gorgeous. Full size is €8.95 (250mls)

Manicure 4 Step File & Shine


I go through nail files like there is no tomorrow, I really like to take care of my nails and keep them in tip top condition. When I first took this out I was skeptical thinking it was a bit flimsy but I was very wrong. It files my nails beautifully and with ease and takes away ridges really well. The high shine buffer is what surprised me most because it left my nails looking so shiny as if I had a glossy top coat on them! Definitely another one to repurchase from this box and to have in your handbag. Also at €2.50 it is super reasonable.

Overall Verdict:
PowderPocket have outdone themselves again this month and are doing an awesome job with the mix of products and presentation. The informative magazine full of information on your products also has interviews and tips & tricks from experts something I do read and like having. I fell like each box has been well worth the money so far and can't wait for next month!

They have a monthly rolling plan which is €15.00 including p+p
6 month plan €78.00 including p+p
12 month plan €156.00 including p+p

  1. How much is Powderpocket? I'd be disappointed to be honest with you. The top coat would be worth a shot but it's not a brand I'd actively go after. Not one person has managed to make that hair perfume sample work so it's definitely not your fault! I haven't subscribed and I don't think I will x

    1. It's €15.00 including delivery (must go add that now). I will start reading other reviews now to see what others are saying, I tend not to read any before I write my own. It will be interesting to see the different range of products over the next 3 months that they put in, but so far I'm happy. xx
