It’s October and I have recently received the latest DappaBox. So just in case you don’t know what it’s all about, My Dappa Box is a box packed with grooming products and fashion accessories for men. My Dappa Box is a monthly subscription box that costs £19 , and you can cancel or pause the subscription at any time.

So what’s inside this October box?

This month it looks like My Dappa Box has decided to go 100% skincare products for men so don’t expect any fashion accessories this month.

In this October’s box there are 5 grooming products inside, and the smell you get when you open the box is just amazing! So let’s started with the unboxing and review.

Optiat: Feel Great Coffee Scrub /mouthwatering mandarin.

The first product is from the excellent brand Optiat (I am a big fan!). This is a scrub shower gel that will leave your skin really smooth all day long. Optiat transforms used Arabica coffee grounds into scented scrubs…..and the result is surprisingly good. Just don’t forget to clean the shower after because it can be very messy!

Friendly Soap Shampoo Bar with Lavender & Tea Tree:

I really like Friendly Soap. I have some of their products and they are very good for my skin. What’s not to like? Natural products, vegan friendly and with a great fragrance. This product is quite unique because this is a shampoo in a bar of soap. And guess what: it actually works well and the essential oils fragrance is top notch!

Dear Barber Matifier:

In the past I’ve tried some products of Dear Barber and I found them more or less ok for my hair, but this one is rather good. First the fragrance is outstanding, and this matifier works well with my type of hair. So thumbs up for this one. Hair products are very difficult to review because it all depends on your hair type, hair cut etc…

Anti Ageing Eye Serum by Admiral.

Eye Serum’s are a bit tricky. Some have a very liquid texture, and others are on the thicker side. Personally I prefer thicker eye creams and this one from Admiral has a good consistency. It smells great and I think it does the job. I am really pleased to see a product from Admiral included in My Dappa Box.

Peppermint Lip Balm by Seascape Island Apothecary

What a really great idea to include a lip balm in this box because this is an area that men usually don’t really care about. Winter is coming guys and we need to take care of our lips especially if you work outside like I do. This Lip Balm is simply great. The peppermint fragrance is really fresh and it is made with natural products, free from parabens, silicones, SLS etc..

This is the first “full skincare” box I have received from My Dappy Box and I think it’s actually a nice surprise. As always the selection of products is great and you should be very pleased with it. It’s a good way to try new products and see if they are good for your skin!
