September Birchbox

October 7, 2018

Hello there guys and gals!! 

How is everyone doing on this fine day today? Autumnal feels are certainly kicking in fast now, and it is officially that time of year where jumpers are necessary in the morning and in the afternoon its the temperature of the sun!

If you follow me on instagram you will see that I did a box opening of my September Birchbox. I have had this subscription for the last few months and each month I tell myself I’m going to cancel it, but it’s so hard. ITS SO GOOD.

You can check out Augusts Birchbox review here. 

So lets just jump straight into it!

The box itself…

I’ve said this once and I’ve said it before, the boxes each time are AMAZING. Such good quality, and such elegant design. This one is really subtle and I love how fresh it is.

Toner…

The packaging for this little bottle is beautifully designed along leaves your skin feeling fresh. A few toners I have used before leave an unpleasant dew on your skin, but I really enjoyed using this project. 7/10

Volume Spray

I think because I am lucky enough to have quite volumized hair anyway, this product didn’t do too much for my hair, but it smells FAB and is the perfect sample size. again I’m really impressed with the packaging of this bottle.  7/10

Blusher…

This was the product I was most excited for as it was the item you could choose. As I have more paler skin and do not tend to go as heavy on my make up, I went for the lighter approach. The blusher is from Benefit Cosmetics and glistens so blissfully. I’m overly impressed with the simplicity of this product and it works really well. 8/10

Moisturiser…

This product is quite nice but I am a little disappointed with how much they give you. Although it is a sample size it felt like that the bottle itself did not even contain that much product. It sits really well on my skin, and overall is a really good product. 9/10

Eyebrows….

When it comes to eyebrows, products are always really hit and miss. this one is more like a felt tip than a pencil which leaves for a darker effect. this isn’t necessarily a problem as it means I can go a bit extra on a night out, but for the every day look it does not do justice. Obviously this does depend on your eyebrow colour depth ofc. 6/10

Generally this months Birchbox hasn’t been too bad. It’s not the best but I am still happy with my products.

I hope you’re enjoying these blog posts and for October’s birch box opening don’t forget to check out my Instagram Hopelesswondererblog

Lots of love,
