September Birchbox

There's something about receiving a bright exciting parcel through the post that makes my day, I always look forward to getting my +Birchbox UK even if I'm not always that excited about the products. This month I couldn't complain once about anything I received as I think I'll find a use for it all at some point!

There was quite a mixture of things, which is probably why I like it so much! It's so much better getting items that you can use for different things, rather than receiving a mass of body or face creams that will take forever to get through. I'm excited to use everything in the box for once!

The item I was most excited about was the +beautyblender £26.00, I was gutted when everyone else got one the other month and I didn't! (Shame I've only recently bought one too). As much as there is a few things I dislike about the real Beauty Blenders.. I couldn't do my make up without one. I reviewed the Beauty Blender here.

Next is the Model Co. £15.00 lip gloss in 'Viva', it's a bright cotton candy type pink which is lovely for through the day. It is so pigmented so it doesn't go clear when you put it on your lips, it still keeps its bright tone. Birchbox gave all subscribers an option on which colour they wanted to choose and I'm glad I got the colour I wanted!

I've worn it with Mac Mehr liner as I have the smallest lips ever, but isn't the colour beautiful? And it tastes like sweeties!

I've always awed at the +Benefit Cosmetics UK skincare range but I've still never got around to try it, I must admit it's the pretty vintage packaging that attracts me to it the most! This month it was the It's Potent Eye Cream £25.50 which is said to reduce fine lines and dark circles under your eyes. I'm starting to get to the age where I need to take care of my skin more to avoid wrinkles, so this will be a great start! 

Also in the box was Korres Citrus Shower Gel £8.00 which has a gorgeous but not over powering scent. It has quite a thick consistency so a little goes a long way! I have really sensitive skin so I'm glad this didn't irritate my skin after using it!

Agarve Hair Oil Treatment £16.00 I don't find this any different than any other hair oil treatments and it also doesn't smell any different, but hair oils will always come in handy when my hair needs that little extra TLC every now and then!It is a little bit cheaper than Moroccan Oil though if you are after a cheaper alternative! 

Urban Fruit Baked snacks £13.20 (Pack of 6), I received the pineapple flavour (wish I got strawberry though). It's great for a healthy snack on the go, if you like dried fruit, they aren't crispy and are nice and gooey in the middle!

Birchbox 'Happy Days' photo clip, I loved this little quirk in the box. I'm going to stick it on my desk at work with a nice happy photo on it :).
