Dollibox: The New Subscription Box On The Block

Beauty subscription boxes are no new thing, but there's a new brand on the block hoping to get in on the action. Dollibox is a very familiar concept; a new online subscription service, providing five personalised beauty samples to your door each month. Dollibox encourages you to fill out your beauty profile, in order for them to personalise what arrives in your box every month.

Here we have the October Dollibox* which arrived earlier this week. It comes packaged in a bright pink cardboard postage box, which you unwrap to reveal the contents inside. In the top of the box there are two cards, these cards outline the details of each product hiding inside. Lets take a closer look at the contents, as there are actually seven items in the box if you include a little extra mini sachet of face mask.

Eye CANDY Eyelashes

I've been trying to remember where I've heard of this brand, then it came to me! This is the brand that were originally behind the launch of the Tanya Burr Cosmetics line. These eye lashes come 18 different variations, in a total of four different styles; Dramatise, Naturalise, Volumes and Maximize. Eye CANDY say that the lashes are really light and that they are "often seen in make-up artists kits". 

Tantruth - The Ultimate Tan
I'm personally not a fake tanner and I've not heard of this brand before. It seems like a weird product to get in the colder months but I know that lots of people rely on their fake tan in their winter months. Tantruth say that they offer "luxurious, professional tanning products", whilst promising you gorgeous summer colour in a matter of hours! Simply apply the fake tan after you've exfoliated and allow four-six hours for the colour to develop.
Next in the box is a two sachets of face mask (one full sachet and one mini) from Feeling Beautiful. This brand is completely new to me, but apparently they are famous in the US, taking the likes of Ulta by storm. The masks are "free from irritating and chemical ingredients" which makes them perfect for sensitive skin types. Feeling Beautiful have TONS of different masks in two different sizes (a tube and a sachet) and they actually retail for under $5. I'm looking forward to trying this, I love a good face mask!

I love the name of this brand, I think it's very clever. It's another brand I've never heard of, but I'm always excited to try a new oil. Oil Arganic is actually sold at Feel Unique, I've just never spotted it before! It is a multi use oil (you can use it on your face, body, hair, nails, stretch marks and scars) and it's a dry oil which contains no water. Oil Arganic say that it's instantly absorbed into the skin, leaving it smooth and radiant. It's unique selling point is that it's actually made with tanned skin in mind, it aims to making your tan last longer without fading.

OSMO Wonder 10 is a product designed especially for dry hair, which is something we all need help with in the winter months. OSMO Wonder 10 aims to breathe life into your hair, boosting it with hydration and getting rid of frizz. It aims to repair dry, damaged hair, whilst protecting colour and helping to give your hair volume. By the description, it actually reminds me of the 'It's a 10!" spray that everyone raves about.
As a nail polish junkie, I've definitely left my most exciting item to last. The Little Ondine polishes come such interesting packaging, which you slowly unwrap to reveal the nail polish inside. These polishes are said to be "odour free, quick drying, and free from harmful or toxic nasties". When you're done with the polish you simply peel the colour off your nails?! These polishes sound pretty revolutionary, so I cannot wait to try them.

I had no idea what to expect from Dollibox, but I'm really quite impressed. I love that the box had six interesting items in the box. Almost all the brands are new to me, so it was really interesting rummaging through the contents of the box. It seems to be good value for money too, the Little Ondine Nail Polish alone costs £11, so you're easily getting your money back! If you're interested in trying Dollibox, you have three subscription options at the moment! You can get a monthly subscription which costs £10 per month (plus P&P), a 6 month subscription which costs £54 (plus P&P) or finally a 12 month subscription which costs £102 (plus P&P). The postage and packaging costs are fairly standard too, costing £3.25 per delivery.
