The Monthly Beauty Box curated for Women over 40
The Monthly Beauty Box curated for Women over 40
NO CONTRACT, PAUSE or CANCEL YOUR MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION AT ANYTIME - FREE P&P
Time of Your Life, or TOYL as we call it, is the monthly subscription beauty box designed by and created specifically for women over 40 who want beauty confidence from the products they buy.
Beauty products that might have worked in our twenties may not be quite so suitable now and that's where TOYL comes in to ensure that women over 40 get products that work, that are made for our skin, that address the issues we have and that meet our sustainability and ingredient criteria.
TOYL SEPTEMBER 'SUPER SERUMS' BOX WORTH £149.95!Serums.
Called the “Money Shot” of beauty because if you are going to blow the beauty budget this is the place to do it. We’ve all tried serums before but this month, you are going to try two of the most expensive, efficacious, lusted-after serums in the UK.
They are called “game-changers” by beauty editors, are slathered on by celebs and, in short, do what they say they will.
However, they are horribly expensive so we’ve got a total of 15ml between two different brands, enough for a good month’s worth of testing and then time enough to get Santa to save up for your favourite – let’s start!
BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM 5ML/ £50.00
Want to know why this is so expensive? It’s grown in Iceland, in massive greenhouses which are mounted on volcanic rocks and then planted with barley. The key ingredient comes from the moment the barley sprouts and pushes its own growth forward – that’s when the chemicals from the barley are harnessed for your skin. The combination of volcanic potency, Icelandic waters and EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor which is the ingredient from the barley) are what makes the magic.
What it does for your skin is reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, boost hydration, and restore younger-looking skin with only 7 pure ingredients. It’s totally vegan but be really, really sparing with it.
One drop mixed with your night moisturiser and smoothed over your face is the way forward with this little beauty.
RODIAL BEE VENOM SUPER SERUM 10ML -£60.00
Now let’s be clear, no bees were harmed, it’s a synthetic replica of bee venom but my goodness does this super serum pack a punch!
Rodial has long been a luxe name and this serum is touted as line filler replacement. It will help correct skin tone, while plumping and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Allegedly loved by Nicole Kidman, Lady GaGa and Elle Macpherson, this product again should be mixed with your moisturiser so that it goes further – you only need a drop.
GATINEAU CONTOURING FACIAL ROLLER £16.00
Now this is a great facial tool.
As we get older our skin gets thinner so I have deliberately steered away from Gua Sha’s (the stone tool used to smooth skin) as it’s too easy to press too hard.
This tool is precision-designed to ensure that you don’t have to press at all – it will do all the work for you and I’ll show you how on a video once the box lands (plus there are step-by-step instructions in the box for you).
This roller is to help you make the most of those oh-so-expensive serums. Instead of rubbing them in with your fingers use this tool to get the product into your face, rather than hands!
MAGNITONE WIPE OUT 100% BAMBOO CLEANING CLOTHs – 2 per box/RRP £20.00
This is in the box to give you the perfect canvas for your serums.
That and it is, quite simply, magic.
If you haven’t come across these cloths before they are 100% bamboo and without any other product at all (except water) will remove all make up completely.
No cleanser liquid or balm required at all making it perfect for sensitive skin and very environmentally friendly as it just needs a wash and can be used for as long as it lasts (which should be a very long time). Remove make up with this, double cleanse with a cleanser, apply serums, roll – it’s a mini routine in itself!
SENSORY RETREATS DREAMY EYES SELF HEATING SLEEP MASK
Single / RRP £3.95
I didn’t need to put this in the box, but I absolutely wanted to because what could be nicer than cleansing, serums, face massage with the roller and then relaxing with a heated eye mask.
If you haven’t tried one of these before there are many benefits. I would absolutely apply the Emma Hardie Eye Serum from our April box before use as the heat will sink that serum in! It’s an incredibly relaxing treat just before bed so save it for a real September treat.
TOYL SEPTEMBER BOX WORTH £149.95!
This is my fourth Toyl box and yet again not disappointed.I have already tried both facecloths-they leave your skin squeaky clean and remove everything! I am currently using the Bioessence and adding it in to my serum to make it stretch a bit further.I already have the eye roller from Gatineau, so will be gifting this to my mum.For not a lot of money you get a great deal from TOYL.100% recommend this subscription box for slightly more mature and discerning ladies ( and gents!)
Another lovely box with extraordinary goodies. I particularly love the bio effect serum, I was researching epidermal growth factors in skincare and was excited to try it. Love the bamboo face cloths! I use mine to pat my face dry after washing and they are brilliantly absorbent and softest ever. I am yet to try the bee venom serum as first going through the first one. But what a brilliant treats. The facial roller felt a bit small initially but it is perfect size. Use mine with facial oil to relax. Brill box!
A really lovely selection of products suitable for 'women of a certain age'; although my 25 year old daughter has been using my goodies too! The boxes really are good value for money and we all deserve a treat. It's a fabulous way of trying products new to the market that you may not have been aware of.
The customer service is excellent and has a personal touch which gets a huge thumbs up from me!
Try it, it's unlikely you'd be disappointed in these beautiful products or this lovely company.
Another fantastic box from Toyl, my favourite subscription box. Every month just gets better, the serums are really amazing, the tool is very refreshing on the face especially if using as a morning routine. The cloths are so soft and would go onto repurchasing the same ones when I need more. The heated mask is very good especially for people who suffer with migraines or if someone wants a relax during bedtime to unwind. Look forward to October’s box. Thank you Karen X.
Can't heap enough praise TOYL boxes are incredible
I love every box … incredible value for money and you get the chance to try items that would normally be too expensive or new to you
I live this subscription box and look forward to receiving it every month , the products are always amazing !
This months box is fantastic , I love how I can try the serums in a mini treat size before actually committing to purchasing them as they are pricey !
Thanks TOYL for another amazing monthly treat .. I can’t wait to try the products x
Love, love, love getting my boxes every month, how would I be able to try many expensive products to see if they really work before actually buying. I make a note and rate the products so I can see which ones have made some difference or which ones I personally like. Keep up the excellent work of bringing us fantastic products. Yvonne X
Lovely box as always, had the best nights sleep in a long time with the eyemask so much so I have ordered more already. Would highly recommend giving Toyl a try I haven't been disappointed with anything unlike other subscription boxes I would use most products and they are always carefully chosen and I love Karen's videos for a demo... Keep them coming :-) Thank you to everyone at Toyl
Great selection, loved the microfibre cloths and the skin products are amazing
Always a lovely surprise and inspiring new products to try and great deals for re purchase of products … my fav this month is the bee venom super serum!
I have been searching and failing to find a suitable serum amd here are 2! You always hit it right on the button TOYL!
I enjoyed using the August box skin feels better.
It’s like the million dollar box. Im going to feel like a new women after using these lux products.
Cannot wait to have a pamper week using them all x
My advice…sign up….you will absolutely chuffed to bits with the box if you do….
Loving the theme this month, another great box from Karen and Team. I would never have tried the serums unless they were in a beauty box, but, having tried them will definitely be a product I will treat myself to in future.
Thank you Karen for another month of wonderful treats xx
The box is interesting and all the products are good quality and nice on my skin.
I'm so glad I found this beauty box...as it's aimed for the over 40s. I'm 61 and absolutely love make-up, skincare, nail polish..to be honest anything related to beauty and I love it. TOYL beauty box is excellent as it offers me quality products suited for my aging skin. Most beauty boxes are aimed at the younger person, with most products not suitable or unwearable for an older (mature) person. It's brilliant and worth every penny.
Loving the products
I loved the June TOYL box! I didn't know any of the brands prior to receiving the box. It was a good way to learn how to look after my legs and feet properly. Plus, the suntan lotion was very handy and just right for summer coming in.
I have been using the Dermatonics, Margaret Dabbs and Urban Veda body lotion each day. I'm going to put Dermatonics on my Amazon shopping list and I'll sign up to the mailing lists for Margaret Dabbs and Urban Veda. They have become a habit now and I'm keen to buy more when I've used up the products. I've already purchased the Gatineau loofah and the Leighton Denny file for a present for someone because I loved them both.
Thank you again for introducing me to great products and helping me to learn how to use them!
I love being able to try new products and for me this is a fantastic way to do this. Such great value and amazing products. Well done Team TOYL.
I have problems with my legs and the leg gel has been amazing. The body lotion is very nourishing.
I’ve not used the other products yet and gave the nail polish to my granddaughter.
I have enjoyed using all the products in the August box. All of them are suitable for me. The youtube videos showing how to apply the products is great too. Well done TOYL.
Loved this month's box, products are quality and a real treat, would highly recommend, customer service is personal and fabulous, a company that cares for their customers. Thanks for all the work you put in to making our boxes I love they always have a theme too x
Another great box from TOYL, exactly what I needed as I have worried about fine lines for a few months now.
An issue with one product leaking, however I am more than confident this will be resolved so would not reduce my overall rating as customer service is excellent.
Thank you Karen and team for a fabulous August box xx
Since signing up for this subscription back in May, every box I have received has been amazing! Such high quality products, in full sizes and with a targeted or specific theme. Everything is carefully chosen and selected and I find myself using everything rather than giving items away to friends and family because they're not appropriate for me. This is the best subscription box I have ever received!
Best beauty box subscription by a country mile. Premium products, full sizes and the only subscription I know which gives you a preview of the upcoming box so that you can decide if it’s for you or not, means you don’t end up disappointed and with a load of items which you don’t want. The value is always amazing and so is the customer service. My search for the perfect beauty box subscription is finally over. Thank you TOYL for being there
Can’t wait to use all these goodies. Keep up the good work Karen.
As I am into my 40's I have noticed that my skin is crying out for more intense care and the products Karen sources help replenish levels of collagen, essential for a healthy and youthful appearance.. suitable for all skin types, even my sensitive skin as they are all quality products, and not just anything goes into the box.. and cant wait for my box to arrive each month...I would definitely recommend this outstanding beauty subscription..
Each time I receive a box I am so pleased with its contents. They feel tailor picked just for me. I love the fact they are themed so you get products for a different part of the beauty regime. Love it so much I have gifted my mum a subscription…..that says it all really
Lovely products skin feels very pampered
A fantastic and well thought out monthly subscription beauty box. Every month I am bowled over with the products. Absolutely glorious!
Thank you Toyl xxx
TOYL never disappoints. This is my fourth box now (Aug 21) and I've loved them all. There's always a theme to the products included, this months theme was the ultimate fine line fix box, and you get amazing value with this subscription. Amazing brands included again this month including some of my favourites, Emma Hardie & Skyn Iceland.
Well done TOYL for providing a brilliant beauty subscription box month after month.
I am really loving my TOYL subscription boxes. Really great value for money, and the customer service is A*. August's box had some gorgeous products in it. I especially enjoyed the Skyn eye masks and the Emma Hardie neck serum.
I love the products such great value for money
Another great box from TOYL. It’s so refreshing to get a beauty subscription box with great products I actually use. One of my items was missing but that was dealt with really quickly so as well as a great product, TOYL also provide really great customer service.
I’ve been wanting to get this for a long time but kept holding back. Why? It’s an amazing box full of treats for an amazing price! Love every single treat in the box! Thank you TOYL. I just wish I’d joined sooner!!
Loving these subscription boxes which are great value for money for the amount of high end products received ❤ I'm so looking forward to using the treatments to improve my scraggy neck . My legs and feet benefited from the pamper treatments received last month.
The box was ideal for this time of year, full of goodies to get your glow on from the hips down. Love Toyl best subscription box I’ve come across!
This is the first time I have signed up to a monthly delivery. My first box was very impressive, especially the full size items. I can't wait for the next box !!!
This is my first TOYL box and I love it! I tried most of the contents on the first day and my favourite is the Margaret Dabbs Firming Leg Serum, very cooling and a lovely aroma, makes my legs feel silky and brilliant to use after I've been swimming. The Leighton Denny Smooth Your Sole foot file is so easy to use and works well with the Dermatonics Heel Balm. Haven't used the nail varnish yet but it will be applied to toes the next time they need re-doing. The Exfoliating Mitt works well and I quite liked the Exfoliating Polish but a little 'muddy' for my liking. Still a few other potions to try and I look forward to my next box - thanks!
Brilliant products, love it. I tried a few boxes and gave away so much as not right for my age, I will be keeping everything in this lovely box.
I got it delivered so quickly after subscribing. The items inside it are such good quality, and full size which is brilliant. They’re also the right things for my age and so my skin type. Love it so glad I found it.
My first box and I must say well impressed, first class brand's and full sizes what more could one wish for
Once again an excellent box of goodies from TOYL! Never disappointed with the selection. First time I tried Margaret dabbs for first time, its amazing and the lotion smells beautiful, that's one thing we don't think about our feet , and it's been lovely using all products for a pamper , toyl is fantastic every time , when I receive products I can't wait till next month thankyou karen for the amazing products as always .
WOW.... another fantastic box! This is the ultimate pamper night in a box. Add a glass or two of Prosecco and you are sorted. Absolutely loving these boxes, always full of amazing products. I get super excited every month. Thank you TOYL you are and continue to be the best beauty subscription box :) xx
This box targets feet and legs and is a smorgasbord of delights. The heel balm is amazing and the body lotion snells Devine! Highly recommended !!!!
Fantastic quality and value for money ,not one product that I wouldn't use
Having tried a number of beauty subscription services I’ve finally found one that meets my needs,TOYL. Each month you can see what you will be getting and if it isn’t for you then you can cancel it. However the contents are always amazing, great quality, useful range of products and all with a massive saving. I found that other beauty boxes contained lots of items I would never use, not TOYL, aimed at the over 40’s all the products are carefully selected and I love them.
I have never used any of the brands prior to getting the box and it was a great introduction. It's hard to know what to get since there are so many brands out there. I'm a real convert to TOYL. It's worth every single penny. I even wore bare legs to the office for the first time in a very long time, since the whole ensemble helped me to feel more confident.
I'd heard of people raving about Margaret Dabbs and I wondered what they were so excited about, but I now get it! The leg serum smells wonderful and you feel it working after you put it on. I followed the instructions with the loofah.
I wish I'd discovered Heel Balm by Dermatonics *years* ago. It is invaluable. I really miss it if I don't have time to put it on in the morning. I need to sit a few minutes before it sinks in and I really should get up earlier to make the time! Cracked heels can be quite painful and this is so kind to your feet. It smells lovely, too. It really does work and it's much better than slapping on any old cream, which is what I used to do before.
The Urban Veda's Ayurvedic Reviving Body lotion smells divine. I use it after the Margaret Dabbs serum and I smell heavenly. I will be getting more of these products when I run out and I will - I love them all and I know I'm going to use them all up. I love the Kure Bazaar's nail polish colour.
It was good to get some tools in the pack so I'm very pleased with Leighton Denny's professional foot file and Gatineau's Exfoliating Body Mitt. They do make a difference to my feet. The foot file is particularly good and I'm getting rid of patches on my feet that have been there for a long time.
The June box was amazing. Products seemed as though they were tailor made with my needs and wants in mind. Very pleased with this my 1st box. Can't wait for the next! :)
Loved the Molten Brown in this box! Smells amazing.
Love receiving my monthly box of new products. Really like the fact they focus on different beauty essentials. This month was all about summer legs, really great to receive a box of beautiful products that I wouldn't normally treat myself to. The value is always way over what we pay and I'm always pleasantly surprised by the quality of products and instantly recognisable brand names.
I love all my TOYL Boxes, such good value and great products every time. Not had chance to use everything in my June box but the tan drops are amazing. I love EH stuff their eye cream is a must have and the primer in this months box is another must have. The Gatineau cleanser is gentle but thorough and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. I’ve not tried the other products yet but I’m sure they too will be amazing
Just when I thought toyl boxes couldn’t get anymore nicer you’ve smashed it again this month. I love how every product matches with a theme, you don’t see that in any other beauty boxes. I would go onto repurchasing most of the products in this months box. I didn’t realise how much my legs and feet needed pampering. Very lovely Layout, perfect summer box. I always like the free surprises, can’t wait until July 18th to see what’s in August box, thank you Karen. X
TOYL is without a doubt the best subscription make-up company. The products are first class and not full size. The boxes are beautifully crafted and the products compliment eachother. The price of a monthly subscription is so cheap in comparison with other boxes I have had. The customer service is second to none. You will not regret having these monthly treats arriving. Simply the best!
Totally lovely great products
lifted my spirits
Just do it , you won't be disappointed. Excellent value .
I cannot rave about this box enough. It is bang on the money!
So well thought out with lovely pampering products each month!
Thank you Toyl.
This box made me realise how little time I spend on my feet and legs! I will never be without the Margaret Dabbs forming leg serum amazing product which I would never had tried if it wasn’t for the TOYL box. Thank you Karen for an amazing boxes again. Can’t believe I nearly paused this box! It’s always the boxes you don’t think you need are the one you do need!
Absolutely fantastic box can't wait for the next one.
I absolutely loved this box of fabulous goodies..! Was so excited waiting for the postman to deliver it..! The quality and variety of items is just fabulous.. it was like having my birthday and Christmas all in one day when I opened the box! It’s the best beauty box I’ve ever seen..! I’m 66 years of age and have always loved my lotions and potions, so being a subscriber is perfect for me, knowing that every month I’ve got something so exciting to look forward to…! Thank you to Karen for putting these wonderful products together for us all! Xx
Another great box from TOYL , this one focusing on getting your legs tip top, and protecting your skin from the sun. The products are top notch ,the value is amazing-I love the beginning of the month and receiving my TOTL box.
Lovely products a real treat for the skin
Great box really interesting products looking forward to using them to see what they are like
This months box is exactly what I needed! They’re all items I wouldn’t usually think to buy but I relaid once I get the products that they’re exactly what I need! I suffer with water retention in my legs as well as aching and restlessness so the cooling leg cream is perfect! As always I’m really happy with my box!
This is my 4th TOYL box and I have loved each one.
I have already started to use the products from July box, the Margaret Dabbs leg serum is so cooling after a long day at work and does what it says on the label, easing my aching legs. The fact that this one product alone is worth more than the subscription makes TOYL the best subscription box by far in my opinion. Karen does an amazing job of ensuring you have all the products you need and tutorials how to use them correctly.
This subscription is also suitable for a younger generation as my daughter who is 30 also uses the products. Her favourite product this month is Urban Veda body lotion.
Karen and her team have really encouraged me to take care of myself now I am in my fifties which then links to increasing my confidence and self-worth.
Looking forward to August
The June box was a brilliant edit. I discovered new brands/products but also a few old favourites. This subscription box never disappoints. The edits are always so well put together & it's such great value for money!
Fabulous selection of products and beautifully packaged. All will be used! The lash primer is particularly sensational! Loving everything about this company. ❤️
Lovely July box! Almost didn't get this box as didn't think I needed it, how wrong was I? Had a lovely pamper session relaxing on a Sunday and my legs feel so smooth, looking forward to seeing the results with continued use. Great box thank you Karen and team as always x
Lovely Box great value and a great variety of products.
Just when I thought you couldn’t get any better you nailed this very summer looking legs and feet box. I like trying the free surprise each month, I didn’t realise how much my legs and feet needed pampering. Lovely contents which most I’ll go on to repurchasing. I like the theme of the box because everything matches, you don’t see another beauty box like this one. Can’t wait until July 18th to see what’s in August box. Thank you Karen. X
I have has a lot of beauty monthly boxes and some of the items are samples but with TOYL they are full sizes this is my 2nd box with TOYL and I am very impressed.
Absolutely wonderful box. Probably the most neglected part of my body has been truly treated! As soon as the box arrived I have turned my evening into pamper session and what a wonderful feeling it was. The serum is wonderful. I am not sure how but my legs are less puffy (I suffer with water retention in them) and feel lovely! To be honest I was a bit dubious about all legs box - but what a treat! The heel balm is lovely and thick. The foot file is great and the nail varnish is hot! The nail varnish is different consistency than normal nail varnishes, feels more like vinyl texture and I love it! Might even look at other colours. Delighted with my box.
The products in this box are amazing ! I can’t wait to try them all
Amazing box of products, I love that each box is themed to something appropriate to the time of year. Really great selection of good quality brands for a great price. You can tell a lot of thought goes into this. I think this is the best box out there for women of my age.
So pleased with this box, they just seem to get better each time. Amazing selection of goodies, and all very useable and luxurious . Thank you TOYL x
I love the July box. I’m amazed at how many full size products were included for the price, and the overall quality of each one. Thank you for such a collaborative box; the theme is perfect for the warmer months.
Absolutely love everything this box. Can't wait to have a pamper session later ☺
I'm not really one for writing reviews, but this definitely warrants one. Amazing value for money and absolutely loved every product, which is very rare for a box subscription. The leg serum is wonderful and the smell of the body lotion is even better, somehow you could smell it as soon as I opened the box. Just love the fact that so much thought goes into these and receiving them are a highlight of the month at the moment.
Love my box. Fantastic value. Great products. Well known brands. Some of my favourite products and some I had not used before, but are now my new favourite products. Best beauty box, for the price you pay for top brands. My new monthly beauty box, a monthly treat to myself.
Not often you get a beauty box, even a luxury one, where you would use every item in it - many of which are full size. It was so refreshing to get totally unique products - such as reusable eye / lip wrinkle patches and lash lengthener, and a good mix of well known premium brands such as Emma Hardie and newer ones to try. Fantastic value for £35 - saving £135 off RRP. As a new subscriber, Karen was great in answering any queries I had. Totally recommend!
Very good love it...
Excellent service and products. Looking forward to July's box.
I loved the products in this box and have tested them out already. I’m over the moon with the results so far and am totally enjoying discovering new brands. I’m a new subscriber and can’t wait to see what the future holds. I’m learning a lot from Karen too. So thanks
Love, love, love my first TOYL subscription box! It has so many quality branded products which are so useful at this time of year. Excellent value and great customer service too. Roll on July xx
Beautiful products, well worth the price of the box. Can't wait to try them all
Lovely selection of goodies to try. Love the brushes! Delivered quickly. Really enjoy this subscription box
Only my second box, but yet again blown away by the contents - every item is something that I would use and wish to experiment with as someone having the time of their life :-) I have had a variety of subscription beauty boxes over the years but the TOYL box is the only one where I know I will use every item (time to donate all the glitter/highlighters/stick on jewels to the youngsters !). I also love the idea that each box focuses on a certain part of the body, so much easier to make new habits and routines that will last.
Amazing box yet again! this is without fail the best subscription box out there and I have tried rather alot! I love the fact many products are full size and are actually useful rather than stuff that no one will actually use. Cannot see myself skipping a box at all x
A beautiful selection of quality brands. Good sizes. Came in a lovely box, carefully packed. Thank you.
My first box and I love everything in it..!! It’s like having my birthday with all the lovely goodies inside it..! Thank you for putting an amazing selection together! X
Absolutely fantastic box th
is is my first box and I will use everything in it. Also love that Karen does videos explaining things too. Can't wait for my next box.
I tried this box as the offer looked amazing. I was not disappointed! Packed with gems of skincare and makeup perfectly suited to my more mature skin. Love the selection and am looking forward to my next box of skin care treats
This was my first box from TOYL, having recently cancelled another subscription for progressively poorer boxes, with little variety month to month.
I was made up with all the items from the June box, really good selection of high quality, decent sized products.
The box arrived within 2 days of ordering, which was a happy surprise.
Genuinely can't wait to see what's coming in next month's box.
The idea that products will be listed before money is taken, so I can skip a month if I dont fancy it is brilliant, although I don't anticipate skipping many!!
Wow wow wow this is my third box such amazing products. So pleased that I found TOYL like having a fabulous present every month.
