Kester Black – Ruby Tuesday
Red nail polish looks good on everyone & is an absolute classic. I have a few different shades of red in my collection now & it’s probably the colour I have the most of. It takes about 3 thin coats of this to appear opaque which

Rimmel London – Apocalips in Solstice

I have flirted with the idea of buying one of these for a few months now. Every time I go into Priceline I will stare at them longingly waiting for the appropriate colour to choose me.

Mor – Neroli Clementine hand cream
Sadly, I’m not a fan of hand creams in general. I find they leave my hands feeling greasy & I will usually wash or wipe off my hands soon after. This hand cream smells like mandarins (which I believe are the same as clementines). I will probably just use it as a body cream to use it up.

Nivea – Stress Protect deodorant

I got a sample of this a few months ago & quite liked it. I’ve been using the same brand of stick deodorant for as long as I can remember. I never liked the idea of a spray deodorant because it’s too cold to be doing that in winter! But I did find it to have a pleasant scent (that some people mistake for perfume!), dries pretty quickly & lasts me all day. Since trying my original sample I have bought a full-size version & will probably test out the rest of the Nivea deodorant range.

Pantene – Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo & Conditioner

This is the third sample set of Pantene shampoo & conditioner I have received this year! From memory, you could sign up for the Pantene sample in the September box which would also guarantee you would be in the first batch to receive your box. I think this sample is probably a leftover from then.

Model Co – facial wipe, facial scrub, moisturiser & miracle booster

The facial wipes have a smooth side & a textured side which I think would be fantastic for removing make-up. I wish I waited to use it when I had a face of makeup to take off! The facial scrub has large sandy pieces in it & feels like it gives your face a good buffing. The moisturiser is just like any other but smells quite like the Cactus Skincare Lemon Myrtle Cleanser. The Miracle Booster didn’t spread as much as I expected.

Thoughts on October Bellabox

So many tiny samples this month. And more nail polish. I have never in my entire life used a whole bottle of nail polish.
