October Birchbox


Beautiful people of the world wide web, I gather you here today for the latest review of the October Birchbox!!

This months box was around the idea of a fresh start and getting comfy for the colder months so I was very excited for this months little hibernation package.

As always be sure to follow @ hopelesswondererblog on instagram for your monthly statement of me making a tit out of myself while I unbox it with you!

Diving straight in here’s the box…


I really like the pattern for this box, it carries a very strong autumnal vibe and a cosy warm colours reflecting that of a fire almost.


I received a little bottle of leave in shampoo, conditioner. I have used this bottle a lot. Having thicker hair means I really benefit from leave in conditioner as it creates more of a shinier look and healthier feel. This one works really well and instantly makes wet hair workable. I do find it doesn’t really smell that great though as it smells very chemically rather than pleasant if that makes sense?? 7/10


The charcoal soap sponge is AM AZ ING I love it. Charcoal is so good for your skin and cleansing your pores and this has worked a treat. It leaves your skin feeling so refreshed and clean. 9/10


The worlds smallest sample of night cream without a doubt, the contents of the packet didn’t cover my whole face! But what it did was alright, its your standard night cream to be honest. I think because of the lack of sample it wasn’t able to justify the product. 5/10


Hair mask!! Birchbox bloody love their hair masks. To be honest I only try one shot with these and then move on, but this one isn’t too bad. It did make my hair feel super healthy but I don’t want to overload my hair with too many products incase it becomes fragile. Β  7/10


Mascara! this max factor mascara is so good! It’s really lengthening and adds a lot of volume with minimum effect. Definitely want to buy this product again! 8/10


This facemask was birch boxes product which you could choose. I decided to go with this one over the gold one as I was interested in the green tea effect. However I must admit, these products are over hyped. The face mask was just super messy and left such a weird dew on your skin. idk I just feel like it hasn’t really had an affect tbh, all they are really good for is taking funny snapchats. 6/10

The October box wasn’t too bad. the idea behind it was a lot better than what was actually provided, and there are some really significant products in it. Hopefully as we get nearer to christmas we will get a few more cosy boxes! Did anyone buy the advent calendar?

Let me know what you got in your October birchbox.

Lots of love

    I didn’t know Birchbox had an advent calendar! I’ll have to check it out before December gets here. I love the design of this month’s box. Hopefully next month is filled with better samples for you. πŸ™‚
