October Beauty Box!

Want to try new beauty samples every month at an inexpensive price? if you do then Beauty Box is something you want!

The Beauty Box is the Australian version of Americas Birchbox. You pay $14.95 a month and then you receive your Beauty Box in the mail every month. There's no locked in contract so you can cancel it anytime. 

So this is the second month i have got the beauty box and i have been happy with both. Let's get onto to samples in this month's Beauty Box:

The Beauty Box comes with a letter from the Team which has a brief explanation on the samples you have received and the price for the full size product.

Ok, now the fun part, the samples:

The first samples were of the Calvin Klein Fragrance: CK one Shock for him and her. There was two samples of each fragrance,

CK one Shock for him to me is more of a younger man smell, it smells like an oriental fragrance however isn't overpowering. A very surprising fragrance and if i was a guy i would be purchasing the full size of this fragrance.

CK one shock for her is another surprising Calvin Klein fragrance, it has a very young feminine fragrance. It has a vanilla scent with a slight but fresh scent of berries. Getting into summer where i live i will definitely be buying this fragrance in full size.
 The next sample i received was the John Frieda full repair full body shampoo and conditioner. I've been looking for a new shampoo and conditioner for a while so i'm excited to try these.

These products contain lightweight Inca Inchi Oil to help repair the look and feel of overworked hair.

They say they help to repair damage from frequent heat styling and colouring. I'll let you know how i go with these :)

 The Garnier Body Intensive 7 days moisturiser with L-Bifidus and Shea Butter. I'm a bit skeptical about the moisturiser lasting for 7 days so i will definitely be trying this moisturiser. The moisturiser with Shea Butter is for dry to extra dry skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple for 7days.
 4 samples of this product came in this months Beauty Box.

The next sample was the Shiseido compact foundation in I40 Natural Fair Ivory. This colour is a little bit dark for me, however the foundation is a nice consistency. It can be applied either wet or dry  and gives a medium to full coverage and a natural finish.
This foundation also contains SPF15, which is always a bonus.

From trying this foundation once i know it wouldn't be my first choice and i won't be buying the full size of this product at the moment.

In every Beauty Box they include a Beauty Treat. This month it was the Biotherm Aquasource moisturiser. It is a morning and night facial moisturiser. Aquasource is an oligo-thermal-gel for all skin types including oily and acne prone skin.

It doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky of shiny. Leaves your skin with a velvety-soft skin texture, almost leaving your skin with a   matte finish.

The gel has a sort of aquatic and really fresh scent to it. I love the smell but it might not be your thing. Definitely worth trying a sample though.

If you want me to review any of the mentioned products just let me know.

Hope you all enjoyed the October Beauty Box and think about signing up, for $14.95 you can't go wrong!

P.s. please note i wasn't asked to do this post, i paid for the beauty box entirely myself. Just hoping to help my fellow beauty product lovers out there.
