Review: ASOS Travel Essentials Box

I know I’ve already been on holiday and I absolutely did not need to buy the ASOS Travel Essentials Box but I have a Birchbox shaped hole in my life that I  felt the need to fill and then in came ASOS. I love that you can see what you’re getting before you get it and it gives you a chance to try out new products. I was really impressed with the box as it contained a lot of brands I’ve been wanting to try for a while but never got around to!


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I have always wanted to try this – it was very hyped in the beauty world but as always I never got around to it. Something new launched or In fell back in love with an old mascara but I was definitely excited to try it and I was not disappointed! This left my lashes looking full and fluffy exactly what I want! In always find my lashes clump and end up looking a bit like spiders legs but this is perfect almost like when my other mascaras begin to dry out but without being dry – I’m so glad I tried this!

Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil

I have been interested in trying OUAI for awhile but I didn’t know where to start! This is a lovely lightweight oil for the mid-lengths of your hair and it’s great! I’ve been smoothing it through t add extra moisture – I bleach my hair so it is always in need of hydration! I actually think I may purchase the full size of this and I never do that with hair oils!

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Brilliance Facial Oil

I wish I could give this a review but I can’t get it out of the bottle! It has a drip top and I have tried everything to get a used able amount out but it doesn’t work! I get a mini amount which does hydrate my hand but that’s not really the point! I am so disappointed as I’ve been on the verge of buying Emma Hardie products for a while so I thought this would be a great way to see if I liked them! Oh well – I’ll keep trying!

Glam Glow ThirstyMUd Hydrating Treatment

I’ve actually tried this a few times before but I was happy to have another mini to save me forking out on the full size anytime soon!

Radial Dragons Blood Hyaluronic Tonic

I originally thought this would be a toner but it is definitely a tonic. I’m not even sure I fully know the difference but the directions say to spray this on your face before and after makeup so I’ve been applying it before my primer and then again as a setting spray. It’s not a setting spray but it definitely hydrates skin which is perfect after powdering. The spray is quite harsh though so I’d advise spraying it at arm’s length or ruining a full face of makeup!

Touch in SOL No Poreblem Primer

You only get a tiny amount of this so I couldn’t give it a full test but when I have used it it did smooth over my pores and keep my make up on in the summer heat so that’s a winner! It’s also super lightweight and melts into the skin with ‘no poreblem’ (wow. sorry about the pun). It is similar to The Ordinary silicone primer but lately, that’s been breaking me out I think it must be to silicone and blocking my pores? I’m not entirely sure but I’m on the lookout for a new pore filler, however, I’m not sure this will be my new love!

I know this is no longer available but I thought I’d do this review anyway as there are some great products included that you might be wanting to try – I know I did! I hope you’ve enjoyed this I stopped doing posts like this for a while as I’d grown bored of them but maybe every once in a while would be a nice change!

Thank you so much for reading!
