Channon Rose October Subscription Box | First Impressions

31 Oct 2017


I recently signed up to YouTuber Channon Rose's subscription box service. Channon Rose is an American lifestyle and beauty vlogger, and I've been watching and enjoying her videos for a while now. After seeing unboxings of her first ever subscription box - which was released two months ago - I realized it was something I would enjoy. And as her second release would be the Halloween edition I made sure to sign up just in time to receive the Halloween themed box!

The box arrived at my home the day before Halloween. The box itself was white with a pretty design on the front and had '#Rosefam'' printed on the side. Upon opening it a few pamphlets placed above the items teetered out. These included a Halloween-y message from Channon, descriptions of all the items inside, a hint pertaining to the next box and a 'Postive Energy Challenge'.

The first item that caught my eye in the box was a cute, grungy #Rosefam Hat. It was cool to receive Channon Rose merchandise and to feel part of a #squad.

Then there were some BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Lashes, which made me very happy. I love false lashes. But despite that I always find myself nervous when purchasing them, as for some reason I don't seem to be very good at it. Meaning, I'm not always happy with the lash purchases I make upon actually wearing them - with them often looking either more subtle or more overpowering than I had hoped. With that being said I was very happy to see that someone who actually knows their stuff had selected lashes that they believe to be worthy. I'm looking forward to trying these on as I'm sure they're going to be great!



What really drew me into investing in this subscription box was the fact that it's a lifestyle box rather than solely a beauty one, and I was keen to receive accessories alongside beauty products. With that in mind I was pleased to receive a Black Choker in this month's box, which is definitely right up my alley. I've recently been pondering the fact that I don't wear chokers as much as I used to and how that needs to change. And this new addition inspires me to do so!

There were also some Furry Cat Ears in the box. As the box came right in time for Halloween the cat ears, choker and lashes combine to make a cute last minute Halloween look. Had I actually had plans for the day (sad face) I definitely would have implemented this, as I found myself stuck for costume ideas this year. 


I like the fact that Channon seems to often include vegan snacks in her box, especially as I've recently gone dairy-free. This month's box included a Justin's Dark Chocolate Candy Bar, serving as a slightly healthier treat for Halloween. I unfortunately can't try this bar as I have a nut allergy. So I'll have to give it to someone else and wait for their verdict on how it tastes!

Lastly came the BH Cosmetics Contour & Blush Palette, which I would crown the most exciting and visually pleasing item in this month's box. I have never actually properly contoured before. And  I have only started using a highlight very recently (blog post featuring my first highlighter coming soon). So this palette appearing at my doorstep now gives me a perfect excuse to finally try my hand at contouring. And it looks to be a great product to jump in with. I'm very much looking forward to experimenting with this palette and seeing what looks I can come up with with its assistance!



To conclude, I would definitely recommend this subscription box, and even to those who aren't familiar with Channon Rose. This box is curated by someone who knows their stuff, so you can expect some high-quality products and accessories, whilst paying a low price. The fact that the box comes every two months also makes it more affordable. Being in the UK it's also fun to receive US products without the usual hassle. The box is also stated to be eco-friendly.
