A mini review of the March ASOS Beauty Box ! These boxes are released at the start of every month and usually cost £12. There are no subscription fees for this and you can choose to purchase or not each month. This months box has a city break theme and has 5 travel sized products, perfect for saving space in your overnight bag.
The products included are : Cowshed Refresh Hand Cream, Oh K! Beauty Sleep Sheet Mask, Dr Jart Ceramidin Travel Kit, Ouai Wave Spray and Alpha H Balancing Cleanser.
I’ve used the Cowshed Handcream before and it’s really great for a on the go moisture boost as it doesn’t leave your hands greasy afterward. It’s formulated with cocoa and Shea butter with coriander and grapefruit oils to tone and support circulation. It’s also the key hand cream used at Soho House and Cowshed spas. This costs £8
Oh K! Is a brand I really love, a skincare brand with a fab range of masks aimed at bringing South Korean skincare to the masses. This sleep sheet mask has hyaluronic acid, the latest buzz ingredient that gives you amazing hydration. It also has lavender and chamomile to soothe and aid restful sleep 😴 I tried this after being poorly for a week with a virus and it really was a lovely mask to refresh my skin, the scent isn’t overpowering, lavender isn’t something I normally go for but it was lightly scented and quite soothing. This costs £4.
Dr Jarts Ceramidin essentials kit includes a mini toner, serum and cream, again designed with hydration in mind. If you’re anything like me I get terribly dry skin when I travel so things like this are a life saver for me! This kit on its own has an RRP of £12 so is worth the cost of the box on it’s own. The cream is one of the signature products of the brand and aims to soothe and protect the skins outer layer.
Ouai is a haircare brand which I love, particularly their scalp scrub, brilliant if you have dry skin. However in this box we’ve got a Wave Spray for that beach hair look. The reason I liked this is it didn’t give a “crunchy” feel like other sprays for this style give, usually because they have salt in them. This has rice protein instead and you just mist it over dry or damp hair and tousle it to get the look you want. This was a 30ml size and would last me a while, perfect for when you’re on your hols. The 50ml size of this is £10.
The Alpha-H 3 in 1 cleanser is meant to remove makeup, be a face wash and act as a toner. It’s a bold claim and one which I don’t think I’ve seen successfully done with other brands. It’s brilliant if you have sensitive skin, and has aloe Vera and vitamin e to soothe and hydrate. I really liked this cleanser, it made my skin feel really soft and I am definitely going to purchase a full size. This 30ml size is £4.95 , a full size of 185ml is £24.95.
Overall this box is worth £33.95 ( I’ve estimated the cost of the wave spray at £5) so well worth the £12 I paid and some really lovely products to help me get my skin back on track !
