The Birchbx Edition: September 15


A big Happy Birthday to Birchbox!

I’m only almost five months into my subscription sign up, but Birchbox themselves have been going for a whooping full five years, it pains me to think of what i have missed out on *sobs*. This month has some wonderful goodies, all products picked from USA brands which is where everything Birchbox originally started. It’s a nice touch for them to go back to their roots for the anniversary box!

In celebration of the birthday the box design is a lovely pastel balloon print, there is actually a choice this month but this one was my favourite design. Something else to mention, something that always makes me happy, there are three exclusive products to point out this month out of the six so i’ll get straight into it and list them below.

  1. Bliss Lemon & Sage Body Butter
  2. Laqa & Co Cheeky Lip Pencil *Exclusive*
  3. John Masters Organics Citrus Neroli Detangler
  4. Beauty Protector Beauty Wash *Exclusive*
  5. Benefit The Poreprofessional License To Blot
  6. The Birchbrush *Exclusive*

Now, lets talk about the obvious… Benefit! Hello – a benefit sample, what a dream. Every beauty blogger loves this brand and anyone that is keen on make up or skin care would love this product. It’s basically anti-shine in a stick, sounds ideal right? Just blot it every where, on your forehead, nose, chin etc and you are guaranteed six hours worth of shine free skin. Sorted! I was really intrigued by The Birchbrush, firstly, what a gorgeous colour! Now, we all know what famous style brush this looks like and to be honest, does exactly the same thing, it’s a lovely little bonus edition to this months box. There is a product that i imagine would work alongside this so well and that’s the John Masters Organics Ctirus Neroli Detangler, oh boy this stuff smells divine! Packed with coconut oil, neroli and grapefruit you just know this is going to do wonders. I really can’t wait to slather this over my locks, it can be used as a three minute miracle worker or as a leave in treatment, either way i decide to use the product i will be reporting back to you for sure!

I’m sure as always, i’ll be super impressed with the samples and some of these will make their way into my monthly favourites. They often do so keep your eyes peeled for that at the end of the month but i will end this post with a final Happy Birthday to Birchbox, couldn’t imagine a month without you!

How lovely of you to drop by!
