Birchbox - September 2013

Today I share with you what was inside this month’s Birchbox…

As usual the products were held inside this cute drawstring bag....

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel – A generous 40ml sample of this wonder product that claims to even out skin tone and maintain healthy circulation after a busy day. This is a really interesting item that I am quite excited to try out. A full size of this item would cost £31

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick – The packaging of this liptick looks a little cheap so I didn’t have the highest expectations but when I tested it I well and truly fell in love. First of all the shade is absolutely perfect for me! I received the shade ‘Kitty’ which is the most amazing ‘my lips but better’ shade. Even better, it smells like a sweet shop! This is the real star of the box for me and it has already found a home in my everyday make-up bag. Birchbox sell these lipsticks in sets of 3 for £15.50 which I think is incredible value, however, you don’t get to choose the individual shades. I really want to try the other two shades from the nudes collection but don’t want to buy another ‘Kitty’ so it’s a little off putting. If anyone knows where I can purchase these individually please let me know in the comments below and I will be eternally grateful :)

After such high praise you were probably curious about what the shade actually looked like so here it is :)

Reverence de Bastien Nail Polish – I received a gorgeous metallic blue colour which I have yet to try out. These nail polishes retail at £16 each.

Bioderma Sebium H20 – Who doesn’t love Bioderma? Although this dinky 20ml sample doesn’t hold much, it is ADORABLE and perfect for overnight/weekend trips. It’s also refillable which is handy so I’ll be holding onto this for any future little getaways. The full size of this product retails at £9.99 although it is quite difficult to get your hands on here in the UK

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Nourishing Body Lotion – This is the body lotion to match the body wash from last month’s Birchbox. As I said last month I love the scent of this and Molton Brown body lotions feel super luxurious. Thumbs up from me :) This is a 30ml sample and a full size of this item would set you back £18

Also included in this month’s box was a little lifestyle extra. Green & Blacks organic white chocolate – I’ve never actually tried any Green & Black’s chocolate before and everyone loves chocolate so this was a good choice. Thanks Birchbox!

So overall I'm very pleased with this month's Birchbox, what did you think of this box? Let me know in the comments below...
