September Birchbox

Monday, 6 October 2014


This is currently a little late in being posted as I received it ages ago, but I have been a little busy with starting back into university for my forth and final year! Before September's box had arrived I had seen some great things about it being posted online so was very excited when it finally came. This box came with a number of little extras like the Birchbox photo clip and Urban fruit Mango, which was delicious!

BeautyBlender & BeautyCleanser; £26 - I love the idea of this little egg to apply my foundation as it reduces lines and streaks to give a more even coverage across my face. Not only that but the shape of the sponge with its pointed tip lets me easily access hard to reach places, like the inner corner of my eyes so I don't miss anywhere. This also comes with a cleanser in the bottom of the packaging so you can easily clean the blender after use. Genius!

Agave Healing Oil Treatment - I am not overly keen on hair oils, I find they can leave my hair looking too oily at the roots and still dry around the ends so for me this wasn't a great product to receive. But nonetheless I shall endeavour to give it a go in the coming future. 

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream; £25.50 - I adore everything about Benefit from their range of products down to their packaging, so receiving anything by them is always a plus in my books. Currently I have been trying to expand my Benefit skin care and this was next on the list. I suffer terribly from black circles under my eyes and have heard this product works miracles, I cannot rave more about it, it deserves its own post which I will be sure to feature in the next few weeks to come.  

Model Co Powerlash Black Mascara; £24 - Before I even got the chance to get this out of the box to test it my mum called dibs. She has been looking for a new mascara and decided to try this one since I had received it in my box, from what I have heard she really likes it but for £24 it is not something I would personally rush out and buy. 

Korres Citrus Showergel; £8 - Before signing up to Birchbox Korres was a brand I had heard very little about. After receiving a bodymilk from them a few boxes ago I find myself really liking their products and especially the packaging. This showergel smells fantastic and I felt as know it really hydrated my skin. I like to mix up my showergels regularly so having a couple of go to scents always goes down well. 

Overall I am pretty pleased with September's box, I really enjoyed using the BeautyBlender and Benefit eye cream but found the photoframe a little tacky and wasn't something I was likely to use in my home. I enjoy the chance of trying new products I wouldn't necessarily had the chance to before, and if you are looking to try and beautybox I would definitely recommend Birchbox, plus if you sign up here you can get 50 Birchbox points which you can redeem against your favourite products!
