Birchbox September 2013

So it's another beauty box. Yes I am a bit of addict to a beauty box. There's something so exciting about getting to the middle of the month and receiving those emails saying my boxes are on there way. I am that sad person stood at the window waiting for the delivery man to turn up. 

Anyway enough of the random embarrassing should be deleted facts about me. Back to the task at hand. Birchbox. This months theme is Backstage to real life "a backstage hero that will transition into your daily routine easily" I think this is again focused around London fashion week. In Birchbox you receive five products and one lifestyle product. This is usually some form of food or drink item. 

What's in my Birchbox? 
Inside this box the products are held in a little bag embossed with the Birchbox logo. You also receive a magazine and information card. Out of all the beauty boxes. Birchbox definitely come's up trumps with there magazine. It's packed full of product reviews, celebrity interviews and useful beauty tips. I have to say I usually associate this box with more body, bath and skincare products but this month they have really tried to put some variety into it. 

Reverence de Bastien Nail polish in No.15
I've been waiting for a box to send out some new nail polish colours. I'm a sucker for a good polish so can't wait to give this one a try. I've never heard of this brand myself but its really expensive so hoping it lives up to its price tag. The colour I received is what I would call a midnight blue with an iridescent shine. 
This is full size and retails for £16.00 (ekkk)

Bioderma Sensibio H20
This is a really cute little bottle and contains 20ml, which is a great amount to establish whether you would like the full size product or not. I'm still on the hunt for a good skincare routine as I really struggle to find anything that suits my type of skin. Birchbox have really tried to tailor this product to my needs by sending me the sensitive skin line. I'm loving the fact it is water based and contains very few of the harsh chemicals you tend to see in the high street make up remover's. This is a good 3 in 1 product which helps to cleanse, remove make-up and sooth skin. It a well kept secret at the moment for all beauty artists and very rare to find in the UK, Birchbox are selling it on there website at the moment for a limited time only. 
250ml retails for £9.99 making this 20ml sample approximately £0.85

ModelCo. Party Proof Lipstick
This is a moisturising lipstick in shade Kitty (Rose Pink). The first thing that jumped out at me was the packaging . I love the bold  print and its a nice change to have white casing rather than black or pink. The lipstick itself smells really sweet, theres a divine hint of berry's to it. It applies really smoothly and I can definitely feel the moisture. Cant wait to try out this lipstick and see how it wears.
Pack of three retails for £15.50 making this sample £5.12 

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel
When I saw this I really couldn't figure out what it was. On closer look it is a body gel to help promote blood circulation, even out skin tone and help to aid cellulite. It is a really good sized sample with 40ml to play with. The only way I could describe the smell is organic and natural. The gel contains grapefruit, rosehip and juniper. I shall let you know how I get on with this one.
200ml retails for £31.00 making this 40ml sample £3.60

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Nourishing Body Lotion
This is the matching body lotion to the Body wash we received last month. I really like this range they have a lovely relaxing smell to them both due to the Ylang-Ylang extracts. I'm going to save these to take away on my holidays in a few weeks.
 300 ml retails for £18.00 making this 30ml sample £1.80

Lifestyle product- Green & Blacks White Chocolate
All I am going to say on this matter is Diet no more. Yum Yum :D

Box value approximately £28.00
