she said beauty box - august

A Betrousse beauty box came in the mail today along with this month's She Said Beauty Box, I'll be doing a post on that box later in the week!
The box contains six products this month, with one being full sized.
White Glo Professional Choice Whitening Toothpaste - I received one of these in a Carmine box ages ago and I still haven't used it, so I'll be able to use these (one straight after the other) to see longer term results, plus it's a good size for travelling. This sample contains 24g and the full size costs £4.07 for 150g, making the sample worth 65p.

Redken Color Extend Radiant-10 - I don't have coloured hair but occasionally I will use semi-permanent dye so next time I do that I'll be whipping this out! The bottle hold 30ml and the full size is (introductory price) £19.99 for 170ml, so this is worth about £3.50.

Papier Poudre Rachel Powdered Paper - I don't really use blotting paper but I'll be popping this in my bag whenever it's a really hot day. One booklet was in the box, and six booklets costs £7.95, so this is worth approx. £1.32.
Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve - This is the full size product, and this exact item was in last month's Glamour as a free gift - so technically it's only worth £2! It also looks very similar to another Balance Me lip salve, which I did a review of here. The tube holds 10ml and costs £12.

Nails Inc Nail Polish in Brook Street - I am making a plea to She Said Beauty, if there are different colour options of a product please please please let us pick the colour ourselves! Maybe send us an email before the box is shipped with the colour options and let us pick our favourite - you don't even need to tell us what the product is, just please let us choose the colour. I say this because too often I am disappointed with something in beauty boxes because they give me an amazing product in a colour I already have or would never wear and it's such a waste.
Brook Street looks very similar to a L'Oreal nail polish I have that I did a NOTD of here.
It's a 4ml sample and the full size is £11 for 10ml making this worth £4.40.

4711 Eau De Cologne - This is the bonus item, and it's a perfume sample. I don't like the smell, I'm pretty sure I've smelled it before and to be honest it reminds me of pensioners. It's 3ml and worth 51p.

The total worth of this box is about £22.40, and you can subscribe to She Said Beauty here.
