Beauty Box – October
Whenever I get home, no matter what time of day it is, or whether or not someone has already collected it – I HAVE to check the letter box. I love getting things in the mail, when I was little, it was all about the birthday invitations and Christmas cards, but then as I got older, I grew to love getting something a little bigger…packages! After hearing all about Birchbox and Glossybox in the US and UK, and feeling rather envious here in Australia, I was so excited when t Beauty Box and Lust Have It!were launched in Australia. I’ve been signed up to both of these services from the start, and I’ve been lovinging the little goodies that show up at your door each month.
This month from Beauty Box we got John Friend Full Repair Full Body Shampoo & Conditioner (44mL each), Shiseido Sheer Matifying Compact Foundation (1g – this is a teeny tiny cute little compact!), Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days (4 x 6mL) and CK One Shock For Her & For Him (2 x 1.2mL of each). And last but not least, the Beauty Treat this month was Biotherm Aquasource Moisturiser (15mL). I’m really looking forward to trying out the perfume because it’s described as a ‘sensual floriental fragrances which sounds pretty unique, but right along the line of the woodsy and oriental scents I tend to prefer.
From the box last month, the Shu Uemura High performance balancing cleansing oil advanced formula was by far my favourite product! I was really excited about trying this product, and it really didn’t disappoint. Normally, I just use the Cetaphil Moisturing Lotion to remove all my make-up before I use a cleanser at night, but on days when I was wearing a full-face, this cleansing oil was brilliant. So effective, gentle, and although I did use a cleanser after I used the oil, I really didn’t feel like it was strictly necessary. You massage a fair amount of the oil onto your skin without any water, and gently watch all your make-up dissolve away as the cleanser becomes milky, then just use water to splash it all off (:
I’ll be picking up my Lust Have It! box tomorrow morning because no-one was home to greet the postman when he came by this afternoon, so it looks like this weekend will be filled with lots of beauty fun!
