October FeelUnique Beauty Box.

So, its been the battle of the beauty boxes lately but a few weeks ago was the first id heard of the one from FeelUnique.
Im already subscribed to Glossybox, last month was my first box from them & I was really pleased with everything [except the plum perfume sample] Id thought about signing up for Boudoir Prive aswell but dont like the idea of getting tea-bags etc Ive read a few reviews & the products look great but I just think it seems more suited for people a bit older than me.

Im not going to blabber on about the 'box' .. it's black, pink & gorgeous!
When i opened it the first thing I saw was a Burberry perfume sample. I cant stand getting perfume samples, anyone could go over to a perfume counter & get it for free so I dont really see the point in it but then i saw there was 6 products all together, the perfume sample wasnt mentioned on the info card, it had just been thrown in as an extra. :] Im not usually a fan of burberry but this isnt bad, quite strong but not overpowering. The theme of the October box is pre-winter warmers...

Bliss fabulous foaming face wash - 60ml.

'A two-in-one oil-free exfoliating wash for all skin types, this fresh, fruity cleanser contains rose hip extract, milk thistle, passion flower & chamomile. Splash your face & neck, massage, rinse well & follow with a moisturiser' I'd heard of all these brands, but had only tried two of them. Ive been meaning to buy this cleanser for a looooong time but im on a mission to use up all my opened products and just never got around to it. I reckon 50ml of this would last a good few weeks. full size 197mls & £18.40

TIGI Catwalk sleek Mystique Straight Collection Blow Out Balm - 90ml.

'Inspired by the mysteries of the orient, this blow out balm gives a smooth, glossy, frizz free finish without sacrificing natural fullness. for the perfect blow out, smooth balm through hair & blow-dry in sections using a round or paddle brush.' There are very few serums/balms that i actually like, most seem to make my hair feel dirty & bleh so its good that I'm getting to try this, I never would have even looked at it nevermind buy it but maybe I'll end up loving it. full size - 90ml & costs £10.35

Crabtree & evelyn India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy - 25g.

'Escape the busy demand of your day with the exotic scent of an island paradise. A lightweight shea butter formula blended with conditioning macadamia nut oil and aloe that soothes and moisturises. A luxurious way to keep your hands soft.' I was excited to see this, Ive never tried anything from Crabtree & Evelyn and Im on a hand-cream binge at the min! £14 for 100g.

Orly Nails Lacquer -5.3ml.

'Slick on a bold hue for high impact color and shine. This exciting and durable nail colour is on trend for all occasions! Fast drying, Long-lasting, high gloss nail colours free of DBP, Formaldehyde & Toulene. Apply 2 coats after a basecoat and finish with a top coat.' Im not sure if everyone got sent the same colour but mine is called Lola, its a pretty pinky, reddy, coral. I tried this out quickly.. application is even, nice brush, nails were opaque after 2 coats & it dried really quickly but it's more of a summery colour and its almost halloween. I'll still wear it tho, even if its just on my toes. I want to try more Orly lacquers, any colours I should look out for? £8.75 for 18ml.

Caudalie Vinexpert Radiance Day Fluid SPF10 - 10ml.

'This energising fluid with SPF10 offers complete firming, protective and anti-wrinkle action along with optimum moisture to ensure a glowing complexion all day long.' Ive read good reviews about this brand so cant wait to try it. I want to use up my other moisturisers first tho so it probably wont be for a few months. Has anyone tried this before? £30.60 for 30ml.

Burberry Body Eau De Parfum - 2ml.

Not a perfume I'd buy for myself but it's definatly worth a sniff!

Theres a 10% discount code for all brands featured in this beauty box - BBOCT10 it's only valid untill 31/10/11

The FeelUnique Beauty Box is £9.95 a month. I was pleased with everything & will stay subscribed.


  1. This is the first time i've even heard of this beauty box!
    Compared to the glossybox and boudoir prive it seems to have much better things in it. Defiantly jumping on the band wagon for this one!

  2. I love the name of your blog!!
    That Orly nail polish is beautiful!!

    I'm a new follower of yours!!
    Check out my blog sometime -

    LoveFaye xoxo

  3. Zoe I was impressed with everything in the box, I've been impressed with Glossybox too but if I had to pick just one, It'd be Feelunique just because it's slightly cheaper. xo

    LoveFayexoxo thanks! the Orly polish is really nice, def want to try more Orly colours now. I'll have a wee read through your blog. :] xo

  4. I get this box too :) I feel like it's my birthday once a month!

    I got a different orly polish - mines called 'Green with Envy'

    I've been using the cleanser since friday and my skin doesn't seem to like it much ... I'm going to keep going with it until the weekend though for a thorough test!


  5. It's great isnt it! I'm like a kid a xmas when it comes :] just waiting on Glossybox now, hope it come's early again like last month.

    I just saw the colour you got, I dont usually go for greens but that shade looks really wearable.
