My Treat 'October Body + Underwear' Box
This month's My Treat Box is the October Glow Box and is full of goodies that are going to make you feel special is going to leave you glowing from the inside out. This box is the 'Body + Underwear' box, which is $44.95 NZD per month along with $6 shipping. One thing that makes me love or hate a box is variety and My Treat always delivers plenty of variety, especially with the October box as it contains a mix of jewellery, makeup, underwear, face, hair and body products. What is also new with the boxes, is that My Treat have included a pamphlet talking about this month's theme and providing info on each product in the box, along with where you can purchase the items again and their retail value. In this month's box I received two pairs of underwear and six products.
1. Gentle Face Polisher by Matakana Skincare
Our first item in the Glow Box is this jar of face polisher by Matakana Skincare. I've been to Matakana a few times, it's a beautiful town to visit and I highly recommend going there for a day trip if you can. This face polisher smells amazing, it actually smells so good, and that comes down to all the beautiful ingredients packed into this jar. The key organic ingredients in this face polisher are: rice flour and manuka honey for exfoliation, rosehip, avocado and olive oil for vitamin replacement, evening primrose oil and aloe vera gel for soothing and calming, and the gorgeous added scents of vanilla, lavender, orange and ylang ylang. I've used this twice now and it's a great exfoliator as my skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. This is the first we've seen of Matakana Skincare in My Treat's boxes and I'm hoping that we get to see their products again in future boxes.

2. Silver Sparrow Bird Necklace
Now, this is the first time My Treat have included a jewelry piece in their boxes so it's a real delight to see this in the October box. I checked out the Silver Sparrow website and they make so many beautiful sets of dangly earrings, stud earrings and necklaces, with many giving you the option to choose shades of gold, silver and rose gold. This is the cutest necklace, with a little bird sitting on a branch, stamped out. Now I myself don't wear much jewelry so this is a perfect piece for me as it's simple but really pretty!

4. Wet n Wild Illuminating Palette
This Catwalk Pink Illuminating Palette by Wet N Wild keeps with the Glow Box theme and has four sparkly shades: champagne, pastel pink, blush pink and gold. Wet n Wild are a cruelty free and affordable brand, and you can buy their products at Farmers stores. I now have three of these palettes but I honestly don't use them much at all.
This palette is good for if you want to lightly dust yourself to create a bit of shimmer on your chest and body which is what I would use it for but as a highlighter on your, I found that it's not that great as it's just not pigmented enough.

5. Ahhh... Cosmetics Sugar Scrub Cubes
Yummm , some Peach Smoothie Sugar Scrub Cubes by NZ body brand, Ahhh...Cosmetics! This packet comes with around ten cubes and smells delicious. I love sugar scrub cubes as they're fun, don't make a mess and all you need to do is take one or two of these into the shower with you for an exfoliating clean. These sugar scrub cubes also come in Ocean Cruz, Summer Melon, Coco Lime and Lavendar and you can buy them at the Ahhh...Cosmetics website.

6. HASK Hair Treatment Oil
Next up, we have a hair treatment by HASK and so far, you can see the amount of variety in this month's box. With the October box, you are literally able to pamper yourself from top to toe as there's something for your face, hair, body and bum! When you colour your hair, you know it needs a bit of TLC (I also haven't washed my hair in about four days so it really needs some love), and after I finish this post, I'll be thoroughly washing my hair and using this oil. What's great about this oil is that it's free of sulphates, parabens and alcohol and contains Monoi Oil, which is native to Tahiti and re-hydrates and softens your hair. This tube may look like a sample-size but all you need is a coin-sized amount so you will get several treatments with this oil.

7. Linden Leaves Gold Toning Face & Body Mist
When My Treat revealed that this here was going to be one of the items in this month's Glow Box, I was beyond excited! This is pure luxury in a bottle, and I'm every subscriber feels so special to receive this toning mist that contains genuine 23 karat gold leaf. This toning mist has the most delicate, floral smell and contains amaranth and red rice for skin hydration along with witch hazel and chamomile to soothe. I'll be using this on my face and neck only, but a couple sprays is all I need to leave me feeling like a golden goddess!

Verdict: This box was full of products that were true to the October Glow Box theme, with all of the items in this box bringing out the glow from inside you as well as keeping you glowing on the outside. This box for me is fun, luxurious, with new products that I'll be using on the daily. Getting my My Treat delivery is one of my favourite days of the month and you can clearly see why. You can get your own box of treats picked with love at www.mytreat.co.nz. Also, if you're not too sure if you want to commit to a subscription yet (which you will though), My Treat have so many different boxes and deals in the lead up to Christmas, so why not treat a friend or family member as well as yourself!
