Birchbox October

After last months Birchbox (post here) I definitely felt that i’d done the right thing about unsubbing from Glossybox and moving to Birchbox. The samples were just more up my street with far better brands and they felt a lot more tailored to my taste, so I was pretty excited about this months box especially with the spoilers they released earlier this week!

Birchbox Subscription (£10 & P+P) – Birchbox

This months box is themed the ‘Beauty Buzz’ box, featuring the award-winning and most hyped products at the minute from some truly amazing brands. This months box features a a new concept in the form of collectable cards with the low down on the products featured in this months, tips on skincare and much more, which is then expanded and in a lot more detail in the Birchbox Online Magazine – such a cool idea! Anyway onto this months truly amazing box and the products I received.

The first product in my box was the KMS California Curl Up Mousse, which I immediately knew would be up my street. I’ve been loving using curling boosting products to define my naturally wavy hair for the past couple of months seeing as I don’t have that much time in the morning to style it properly, so i’m pretty excited to use this. Next up is the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, which i’d never heard of before but is said to reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and discolouration. Now, I do have a few acne scars and my skin tone is a little uneven so i’m intrigued to see what this can do. The next product is probably the most exciting of the whole box and this is the Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer! I’ve wanted to try a few Laura Mercier products for some time, this being one of them so i’m really excited to see how this works for me and there is another Laura Mercier sample in next months box! Another product i’m really excited about is the Dr. Lipp Nipple Cream for Lips, sounds weird but this is described as an SOS lip balm for dry lips, nipples and cuticles. Now let’s be honest, who has dry nipples? Not me thats for sure (sorry to bring it up), but I do get very dry lips, especially in winter so i’m hoping this will sort that out. The last product in this months box is the theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac, which is basically a lip and cheek stain. To be honest, i’m not a huge fan of lip staining products as I find it so hard to remove them from my lips the next day but i’ll give this a go and see how I get on with it.

In this months box I also received two extra samples, the first being my beauty extra – the Egyptian Magic a multi purpose healing skin cream made with six natural ingredients, sounds quite intriguing and i’ll definitely see how I get on with these. The second product is actually different to what my product rundown says, but I received some Birchbox Eyelash Curlers which i’ll happily welcome.. you can never have too many eyelash curlers I suppose.

All in all i’m so pleased with this months box and I defintely do not regret starting up my subscription with Birchbox!
