A surprise box from ASOS this October with a charity collaboration supporting Look Good Feel Better. This box was £20 but all proceeds go to supporting the charity which helps people with cancer. They aim to help people with cancer emotionally and physically with workshops on skincare, makeup and grooming designed to help with wig advice, nail care or shaving with scars.
With 10 products and brands like Nars, Charlotte Tilbury, TooFaced, Benefit and HudaBeauty to name just a few this was one not to be missed.
My fave item has to be the Ruby Obessions palette from Huda Beauty, this is full size and worth £27 !
There are a few mini sizes with a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the shade Bitch Please and a gorgeous Nars lipcreme in a really vibrant red which reminds me of MACs Ruby Woo in a creme form.
There’s also a full size TooFaced primer which is £29 so this box is well worth the money based on the primer and Huda palette alone.
Alpha H moisturiser, Ouai hair oil, benefit mascara and a Real Techniques sponge round out the box and make this a real top to toe box!
Hey everyone I’m back with another ASOS box! October’s box is themed to haircare and is perfect for the winter weather that’s coming! Let’s jump in and have a look at the awesome stuff in this box for just £12.
First up is Monday Haircare with their smooth shampoo, this is designed to fight frizz and uses Shea butter and coconut oil. First up it smells amazing and my hair felt incredible after using it.
Hairburst mini conditioner has avocado and coconut for strengthening properties and helps hair feel hydrated for longer. This is a great size for weekends away so I think I’ll be keeping it for that.
Ouai is one of my favourite hair brands and this treatment didn’t disappoint! Although this was for fine to medium hair it was still a lovely treatment for my thicker hair and it didn’t feel greasy afterward.
Also in this box is the Camille Rose hair treatment which smells of suncream and holidays (aka coconut!). This is perfect for a weekly treatment and I’ll be dreaming of a sunny getaway this winter while I use it! Great for thick hair and anyone with frizz prone or dry hair.
Last is a heat protection oil from Easilocks which is to apply before drying, straightening and curling to avoid damage. It’s a lovely lightweight oil and I am always up for anything that will help protect my hair from heat styling. I do try to limit the amount of heat I use lately but it’s great to make sure you have the right products to use and stop any damage.
An added extra to tie up your hair in style is this invisibobble sprunchie! It’s a cute linen style material and means you can tie your hair back without the headache. Invisibobbles are like stretchy spirals, almost like a phone cord, they stretch but still hold the hair in place without it being too tight.
And that’s everything in this box ! Amazing value for £12 , but what do you think?
If you want to try and grab next months box in November, I recommend getting the ASOS app and periodically searching for beauty box, from around the 1st of the month. Sometimes they go live on the 1st other times it’s been around the 6th.
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.
