Battle of the Boxes: October

Monday, November 30, 2015

Better late then never right? November, MY BIRTHDAY MONTH, has been so crazy busy for me. I knew I had to get this battle of the boxes up no matter what, so here is the oh so anticipated review on my beauty subscription boxes!!


Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner

This shampoo does not lather and personally I can't get used to that! I feel like I need to use more product to get my hair clean. Now I can't deny that I did like the way my hair looked after shampooing and conditioning... BUT my hair got oily quickly. I have color treated hair and tend to wash my hair every other day and sometimes every two days, so needless to say this was not a shampoo and conditioner for me.

Harvey Prince Ageless- Pink Grapefruit
Smells really good and love this scent for everyday. I already have a few perfumes but I will definitely keep this one in mind when its time to buy a few more. This perfume has a mix of floral and citrus scents, it also has true lasting power throughout the day. If you are shopping around for a fun and light everyday scent, take your time and check this one out.

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (24 Hour Miracle Cream)
The soothing shea butter and aloe vera in this product definitely makes your skin look and feel great. I used this product a few times at night and in the morning my skin was so hydrated and smooth. A plus side, you can use this cream as a makeup remover, post-shave soother, and all over body lotion!

12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment
This product works nicely but I already have a product that is very similar (it's a 10 Leave In Product) and I would not switch over. It has a combo of natural protiens and lipids and makes your hair feel smoother and look healthier, not to mention how easy it is to brush after letting it soak in. 


Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub
Yummy, smells like pumpkin and feels like fall! I have used this product several times and although I love the smell, I would not purchase this exfoliating facial scrub. I have sensitive skin and prefer a scrub that is not so abrasive. Some may like this product, it definitely leaves your skin feeling "scrubbed" clean.  

Ayres Sunrise Hand Cream
I usually do not get too excited about hand creams but this product has really cute packaging and I threw it in my purse right away. Washing your hands all the time can really get them dry, especially now with the colder weather. It's important to use a good hand cream throughout the day and before you go to bed. I already have so many but I did enjoy this product in my ipsy bag.

Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polish in Inky Dinky
Love the color but I have not tried this out yet... 

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick
WINNER! Love it and will be purchasing multiple shades, the formula doesn't leave your lips feeling super dry. I tend to always love theBalm Cosmetics and these are new to their line, I would definitely recommend you to try this product if you are looking for a neutral liquid lipstick. They are great for lasting long and have a matte finish.

Coastal Scents Eyeliner
FAIL. I have to say that I was really disappointed in this product. I always hear great things about this line and was excited to try this liner and hated it. I do not like any eye product that tugs the skin and is hard to apply, my favorite types of liners glide on easy. I will not be giving this product a second chance.

THE BOX OF THE MONTH IS... IPSY! Thanks to theBalm Cosmetics liquid lipstick I have decided that the ipsy bag won me over this month.
