Octobers box has been in for a little bit now (besides I get it later than everyone else, got to love living up north). I paid $26.15 CAD for Octobers box and still a price I have been more than happy to pay. Lets see if this box was worth it though.
So, I love the fall colours this box had. Plus, the cards are always so pretty. Not as many big items this month but there are a lot of items so Yay!
FYI: the pictures are kind of horrible I could not find a spot where I was not getting a shadow.
Who says save the best for last. We are going to do them first! On the left there is ‘Green Tea Primer’ by Evio Beauty. Cruelty Free stamp (PETA), Paraben free, and vegan. Excited about the vegan aspect and of course that they say they are cruelty free. I will not be opening this until I finish with my current primer though. Oh and it is made in Canada!
On the right we have a lavender mud bath mix by Black Oxygen. Pretty sure I can use this right now. I wish I had done this earlier as I had a bath the other night.
*Update – I have tried the mud mix. Not sure if it is really for me though.
*Update: I have been using the primer. Since I only use a setting/finishing powder I do not think I can make a proper review of the staying power. The formula was much thinner than I am use to. I had no reaction to it which is always good. I also did not hate it either. I plan on trying a couple different brands but this one currently sits at the top of my list.
Two whey protein mixes. One in vanilla and one in strawberry, sweetened with stevia. Not thrilled but always happy to be able to try things out.
I have three sample packs of the ‘Organic’ Jelly Bellys. Have not tried them yet but I have mixed feeling about organic label. I mean they are still jellybeans and not healthy for you. This will not make me feel less guilty about eat them. On the right is strawberries and cream flavoured fruit and nut nibbles by Nakd. I want to say I have tried the brand before but no promises there. I am excited about these ones as the ingredients list is very small. Dates, cashews, raisins, rice flour, and natural flavouring. That is it!
*Update: Not a fan of the jellybeans. However I am not big on any jellybean.
*Update: Tried the nibbles, totally did not like them. I feel like it was more the flavour I could not stand. I would completely be open to trying a different flavour.
Toothpaste samples by Auromere. These are being put in the bin of travel products. We are currently using a vegan, Canadian toothpaste. Which, I happen to love and I will have to check with Mister on how he feels about it.
*Update – I tried the licorice flavour and I love it. I will buy it if I come across it but since it is not Canadian I will not specifically go looking for it.
Always enjoy this brand and while I cannot use these right now I am hanging on to them. They do not expire till 2019, lets just hope I remember to update when I am able to use them.
These I do not think I am comfortable using. They sound kind of interesting though. Pink Ice Energy Crystals. Raspberry and Mint flavoured. Suppose to be a dietary supplement. I would suggest doing some reading on these if you are interested in them. I am really on the fence about how I feel.
I have had this brand and the fact that they have chocolate cookies are a little exciting. Just not healthy for you. Awesome to be able to try this junk food with out actually having to buy more than you should!
On the left we have Handfuel marcona almonds with sea salt and freshly squeezed lemon. Mister seen these and told me I should be eating them right at this moment ha-ha. I keep stuff like this at the office but these sound much more refreshing or at least lighter. On the right are Laiki black rice crackers. They are vegan and kosher with a very limited ingredients list. Not holding my breath that I will like them but maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.
*Update: The almonds are not anything fancy but I enjoy the simplicity of them. The size of the packaging is also perfect to throw in the diaper bag.
Besides a couple items I would say this box is worth what I paid. Cannot wait to see what November brings!
