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.
All the goodies in the last box.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
