October Her Fashion Box

HFB1

This post is a tad delayed, so I do apologise! I received the October Her Fashion Box a little while ago, however I haven't been able to blog in a little while. My love affair with subscription boxes has been wearing thin lately, as most of the products in the boxes seem to be lacking inspiration and I feel like my money would be better spent elsewhere.

I've always been a fan of Her Fashion Box, however, as it always seemed a little bit different. While I wasn't overly excited when I opened this box, there were still products and brands I had not experienced before; so I won't be unsubscribing just yet.


HFB2

The theme for this month is Pearlfection.


HFB3

All the goodies in the last box.

HFB4

Smoothie Booster in Energy Booster


I'm a tad bit over receiving smoothie boosters and health food things. If I wanted a box that contained health food goodies, I'd subscribe to one of them. On the other hand, I totally get where they are coming from - the idea of beauty starting on the inside. It's a great idea, it's just not for me. I don't drink smoothies, so I'll be passing this one on to somebody who does.


HFB5

Two Pearls in a Pool ring & Capote earrings


In line with this month's theme, the jewellery I received was all pearl. I adore the ring, it's very cute and simplistic, which is perfect for spring. The earrings are very cute as well, and I can definitely see myself wearing them.


HFB6

Purrfect Sunglasses

I opened this box with my sister and the first thing she pulled out were these sunglasses. She immediately begged me for them; so I'll  most likely be passing these on to her since she's so in love with them. I also really like the shape of the glasses; they're very feminine and big without being over the top. They also feel very sturdy and not too cheap at all.


HFB7

IME Natural Perfumes in Expressive and Elegant 

I received one extra fragrance as a gift for filling out last month's feedback survey. Unfortunately one of them leaked everywhere throughout the box, so as soon as I opened it, I was met with a very strong whiff of fragrance. These fragrances are very strong and have a distinct feel of aromatherapy. In saying that, I really liked the scents and will definitely be using them.


HFB8

Brauer Paw Paw Lip Shimmer in Blush

I know I have received this in a previous box, I just can't place it though. I really liked the first one I tried and it's still sitting there in my collection. I don't need two however, so I'll be passing this one on to somebody else as well. The colour is gorgeous and I love using paw paw on my lips; especially in the dryer month.


HFB9

Maybelline Color Show Polish in Onyx Rush

 I was a little bit disappointed to see this in my box. I've noticed other people received Orly polishes in their boxes; which I would have loved. I'm a huge fan of Orly but they are a bit of a pain to buy for me as there is nowhere close by that stocks them, which makes them extra special when I receive them. As opposed to Maybelline which I can find most places very easily. I was also a bit bummed out by the boring colour, but I suppose that's just luck of the draw. I do love the Maybelline polishes though, so it's not a total loss for me as it will get used.


HFB10

BX Earth Bit of a Soft Touch Nourishing Body Wash

This big bottle of body wash also leaked slightly throughout the box, which meant most of my new goodies were covered in a little bit of a sticky. Luckily it looks as though not a lot got out of the bottle, which leaves me with a mostly full bottle of body wash! This says it contains goats milk, peach and manuka honey - which sounds amazing. It also smelt pretty nice (from what I could tell over the fragrance that also leaked) which is great. I'll definitely be getting some use out of this.

All in all, the box wasn't a total disappointment, but as I said it didn't really excite me. There were a few things in here that I loved and will be trying out, but otherwise I was familiar with some of the bands, or some of it was not for me.
I also got a mini RY.com.au nail file that I forgot to photograph! 


I'm happy with what I received, and I still can't wait for the next box to see what will be included. You can find out more about Her Fashion Box on their website, here.


Have you received your October Her Fashion Box? What were your thoughts? Have you tried any of the above products - what did you think?

  4. I love the accessories in this box! Also, that peach wash is gorgeous - it doesn't linger for long, but is quite a strong scent in the shower!
