ASOS Beauty Box October 2021

ASOS Beauty Box October 2021

Back at the start of Summer, ASOS released two haircare boxes which sold out within minutes, I’ve got a lot of use out of the products within that box, and felt like it was really good value and when I saw that they were launching another one for their October Beauty Box, I snagged it up. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m on a colourful hair journey. Looking after my hair with good products is very important to me at the moment, it’s costing me a lot to have done and I’m wanting to look after the colour for as long as possible in between.

The last box contained a full-size Olaplex product – one of their best IMHO – and it was understandable why it sold out so quickly for just £12. Unfortunately this time, there was no Olaplex to be seen, however – there was still some lovely brands inside to try and the product lineup seemed up my street as I’d use everything in the box. With six full sizes and two deluxe sample sizes – it was another good value box with lots of variety for just £12.

Let’s jump into what came inside.

Invisibobble Scrunchie

I’ll start with the item I’m least excited by – which is this invisibobble scrunchie – I thought before it arrived, I might use it and I could see myself using it a few times – however I’ve “bought-in” to the scrunchie trend and I’ve worn them very infrequently, instead – I think I’ll pass this onto my best friends daughter, who is 4 going on 14 and loves playing with makeup and hair stuff, and I think she’ll like this! This one isn’t on the ASOS site at the moment, but on other sites, this has an RRP of £8.99 – so a nice value item!

Ouai Fine to Medium Hair Treatment Mask

One of the deluxe sizes first, Ouai is a brand I’m getting go know well at the moment thanks to their perfumes (review incoming!), but their haircare still lives fairly undiscovered for me. I always love trying out new hair masks, my hair has dry ends from colour and bleach damage and anything I can add to add moisture back in is well appreciated. This is a handy-sized pot that I think I’m going to try and keep and put aside for a trip at the end of November, so I can just take this with me for the week! It does, however, smell absolutely wonderful.

Hairburst Conditioner

And the final deluxe was one I was happy to see, I’ve only tried Hairburst for the first time since the last ASOS box and I’m enjoying the mini of the styling product I received in there so I’m intrigued to see more from the brand – Conditioner is always welcomed just like the mask as I run through it so quickly due to my colour damage and long hair. Again this may be a product I set aside for travel in a month or so’s time so I can pack light! I’m pleased that I’ll manage more than one use from this, normally conditioner samples are on the stingy side!

Monday Smooth Shampoo

I hadn’t heard of this brand before but the packaging is lovely and it really intrigued me! The way the brand describes itself is a little like beauty pie – premium formulas without the price tag, but there’s no model to their claims and sell with multiple retailers. This is a 350ml shampoo for £5.50 – so very reasonable – a quick sniff of the product has a light scent but nothing overpowering. I’ll be interested to see whether it does feel like a premium product, however, my hair is freshly done at the hairdressers, so I will hold off for a bit to test whether it’s compatible with wild colours rather than seeing my dye rapidly running down the drain if this isn’t as colour-friendly as I need.

Easilocks Rose Gold Oil

Honestly, one thing I didn’t really need in my haircare drawer was yet another oil as they take me so long to finish up – and I tend to prefer a cream product for styling and taming dry hair instead. But, this box has been kicking around for about a week and I’ve picked it up and tested the odd pump as I’ve walked by and the smell and formula of this seem really lovely. Easilocks are a hair extension brand and this rose gold oil is a heat protector and conditioning oil in one – which I do like the sound of and will be more likely to reach for this than others in my collection. This is a 50ml size which comes in with a price tag of £9, which is very reasonable.

Camille Rose Coconut Water Detangling Treatment

Last but not least is this detangling treatment from Camille Rose – who I have heard of before but haven’t tried anything from. My hair seems to be out of a severely knotty stage at the moment and I’m finding the products I’m using aren’t leading me to need a specific detangler – however, in future I imagine that will change so I will keep this aside until needed. This has a lovely coconut scent, but not in a way that’s overdone. This bottle is huge and will last a long time – coming in with a price tag of £10.99.


Not the most exciting box that we’ve seen from ASOS, however for someone like me who is running through haircare at the moment it felt like a good deal to try some new brands and products instead of sticking to my same-old-same-olds.

This box is currently sold out, however they have an amazing deal on an Elemis colab box (affiliate link) which would make a great Christmas present or if you need to stock up your 0wn skincare collection.

Did you manage to snag this edition of the ASOS Box?
