This month's box is dedicated to "DIY Beauty" and pampering yourself on a cosy night in. It contains "lavish" products to create the ultimate home spa experience after a day out in the cold and crisp October weather.
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Glossybox will also be donating to Breast Cancer Care.

What's inside:
Dermalogica 3 step day & night kit
Dermalogica 3 step day & night kit
Includes 'foaming wash' cleanser, 'all over clear' purifying toner spray and 'welcome matte' moisturiser.
I don't like putting lots of different products on my skin too often, because I find the change in formulas can be unsettling on my skin and that itself can cause break outs; so I usually stick to the products I know and love. However, I have heard good things about Dermalogica so this is a brand I have wanted to try out. The scent of the products isn't too appealing, but this could be because of the "non-artificial fragrances, dyes or mineral oils" in their products.
 £12 per kit

 Anatomicals 'Don't just clean it woman, scub it' body scrub
 Anatomicals 'Don't just clean it woman, scub it' body scrub
The pink grapefruit scent of this scrub alone was good enough for me, the product itself is brilliant. A dull couple of weeks has left my skin looking exactly like the gloomy clouds above, but after it's first go, this scrub had my skin looking healthy and glowing instantly. 

Skinetica Anti-Blemish
Skinetica Anti-Blemish
This 'unique solution' promises to clear skin blemishes, with results in 2-3 days.
I used this product once, after cleansing, and it had my skin looking clean and clear within 12 hours. Miracle?  I'm not sure, I'll have to use this a few more times to be certain. 

Yves Rocher France, Moisturising Cream Lipstick Yves Rocher France, Moisturising Cream Lipstick Yves Rocher France, Moisturising Cream Lipstick 
True to it's name, this liptick is very moisturising, infact, it glided onto my lips smoothly without the need of a lip balm primer. A bold rasberry or 'framboise' shade is a lovely way to brighten up the day.

So that's what was in my October Glossybox!

Blast from the past!

Today, in the run up to Halloween, I have been having a Sabrina the Teenage Witch marathon. I haven't watched this programme since I was young, so it brought back great memories of coming home from school and watching my favourite show on Nickelodeon.
I forgot about how much I love Sabrina, and her bedroom. It's extremely '90's Cool' and I remembered how I wanted my room to look like hers when I was little.

Does anyone remember watching this programme?
