Dollibox- September 2017 Review

About the box
Dollibox is a beauty subscription where you will receive five full sized or 'deluxe' sized beauty products every month from both well known brands and more niche ones. Everything is a surprise- unlike many subscription boxes they do not reveal any of the contents beforehand.

£10/month, plus £3.90 P&P

What I got
So I accidentally skipped last month- August's- Dollibox, which I was really sad about as it looked amazing. But anyway, here I am with September's box, and it's not too shabby!

Foccallure Matte Lipstick in Cardinal

Foccallure Matte Lipstick in Cardinal Swatch

First up is my favourite item in the box, this Foccallure Matte Lipstick (full size, £10.00) in Cardinal 01. It comes in a chunky crayon sort of format, but it still applies incredibly smoothly and it really is a lovely deep red. There's a twist up function on the end to dispense more, and it's also a waterproof formula!

Fairypants Vegan Cosmetics Dry Skin Balm in Orange & Vanilla

#Fairypants Vegan Cosmetics Dry Skin Balm in Orange & Vanilla

Next is this Fairypants Vegan Cosmetics Dry Skin Balm in Orange & Vanilla (full size, 60g, £3.99). It doesn't actually smell of very much, just a very faint sweet smell, which was kind of disappointing. I thought it was going to be really hard but it's actually quite a squidgy soft formula, and once warmed up between your fingers it melts into a lovely soft balm (hence the name) and some of the sweet scent becomes very slightly more noticeable. Fairypants is a vegan cosmetics brand which sells makeup, skincare, perfume and accessories and is stocked internationally.

Anatomicals Lip Balm

I love Anatomicals, so was really pleased to see this 'Never Lose Your Cherry' Lip Balm (full size, 15ml, £2.49). I thought this was going to be cherry scented but it's actually more a generic fruit scent. It has an SPF 8, and is free from parabens.

Schwarzkopf Professional Micellar Cleansing Conditioner

This is the Schwarzkopf Professional Micellar Cleansing Conditioner (sample size, 50ml, £2.25). You've heard of micellar water for your face, now they're putting it in haircare! It's meant to be more gentle, as well as being sulphate free and leaving your hair with it's natural moisture intact. It also smells amazing!

Glitter Eyes Pressed Glitter

Glitter Eyes Pressed Glitter Swatch

Finally, this is the Glitter Eyes Pressed Glitter (full size, £5.99). This is both a pan of pressed glitter and the little holder/case for it, which is really useful as those teeny tiny round pans of glitter end up getting crunched up and lost on their own. I am kind of tired of being sent pressed glitter by now, but of all the pressed glitter I've been sent (and that's a lot), this chunky silver coloured stuff is actually the prettiest.

There was also a little bag of Joe & Sephs Coconut and Chia Popcorn which I think was more a tasty extra. I'm really not keen on sweet popcorn, so I'll probably pass this on.

Final thoughts
This was a pretty good box- all but one item was full size, and it was a really good variation of items. I think I will probably continue my Dollibox subscription for now, as it is quite a fun box for a beauty subscription.
