October’s Glossybox is always a fab one and for once 2020 hasn’t disappointed us! 5 items in this gorgeous Enchanted Spirit themed box which I will definitely be keeping!
There were two versions of the box this month, Enchanted Spirit and Midnight Fantasy with little difference between the two apart from some shade and scent variations. Both boxes are designed beautifully to give you all the lotions and potions you need to transform this October, perfect for the spooky Halloween season!
First we have AHC Essential Eye Cream for Face. I was a little confused by the name of this and on reading the card it’s described as, “a face cream with all the benefits of a concentrated eye cream” It makes more sense on reading that which means it can just be used as an eye cream or you can use it all over the face in a thin layer for an extra moisture boost. This is a deluxe mini and worth £8.66. It’s a gel texture which I really like for a nightcream / eye cream and feels really nice on my skin. Will see what the effects are in the coming weeks!
Next is BubbleT with a Stardust foaming bath powder in Lavender. The Midnight Fantasy Box would have the rose scent. I’m so pleased I got the lavender one as I really don’t like strong rose scents ! This bubbles up so nicely in the bath and is a lovely calming scent before bed so definitely a winner! This is a full size worth £5.99.
Luna by Luna lipstick in the shade Pixie is our next product and it’s a really pretty red. I do love a nice red colour for the autumn months and this has a nice pink tone to it. This is full size and worth £15. It feels really nice on the lips and is pretty smooth to apply.
I haven’t tried this next product before and it has rave reviews so I’m excited to try the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer. This is a deluxe mini worth £10 and it’s billed as a part hydrator part primer. This feels really nice on the skin and has a clear gel texture, reminds me of the Smashbox Photo Finish primer. This is perfect for the colder weather as it says it works to maintain hydration in your skin.
Next is The Beauty Crop Stargazing blush duo in the shade Orion which has a bronze and a coral shade. I love that there are two shades in the compact, one matte and one with a light shimmer. You can wear them alone or layer the matte with the shimmer for a nice glow, they are really nicely pigmented. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this as I’ve just come to the end of a similar blush. This is a full size and is worth £18.
Last of all we had another little chocolate treat in the form of a Cadbury’s Dark Milk sample. If you’ve not tried Dark Milk before it’s meant to be a mix of dark and milk chocolate and it’s actually a favourite of mine. In my opinion it’s like a richer version of Dairy Milk and a less bitter version of a traditional dark chocolate. I love when we get little extras like this in the box!
Total value of this months box is £57.65 which is really great and especially as I know I will get so much use out of everything. It may well be one of my favourites from Glossybox this year! I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.
The sneak peek for November looks exciting as it’s a eyeshadow palette from LASplash worth £29. It looks like a nice mix of autumn colours and having had a few products of theirs before I know they are really good.
