birchbox 014

Another month, another fantastic offering from the guys over at Birchbox with their October box, where the theme of the month is #BBXBUZZ; which includes a great range of products to get us talking online! Let’s get straight into what we’ve got this month:

birchbox 015


KMS California Silk Sheen Stying Creme | £15.50 |
Although I don’t have a use for it now as my hair is being worn in braids, I’ll definitely be keeping this in my hair product draw just in case I decide to get extensions within the near future. The creme is a lightweight formula has an in-built heat protector and protects hair from being frizz free. I actually thought it was a full sized product, but it’s actually 75g, which is incredibly generous!

ULTRADEX Wire Free Interdental Brushes | Full Size | £5.49 |
One can never have too many travel sized dental accessories! These brushes are perfect for getting into those hard to reach areas in-between brushing or after eating. At work, I normally tend to eat a lot of Sushi (can’t get enough of the stuff) so i’ll be putting these into my handbag so that I won’t be walking around with fishy teeth 🙂


Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream | £34.90 |
Yo. I’ve been wanting to try this cream for the LONGEST time and after hearing so many great things about the product via bloggers, I’m so amped to be finally trying some samples. Made of honey, beeswax, olive oil, Royal Jelly, bee pollen and bee propolis, this ultra intensive moisturiser is perfect for those like me who prefer a more natural alternative to skin care. If my skin gets on with this cream, I’ll definitely be purchasing the full-sized version.

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips | £11.50 |
This is another product that has been on my wishlist for the past 3 months. Originally created for mothers with sore nipples during breastfeeding, the hydrating formula gained the attention of makeup artists and was soon heralded as the ultimate lip balm and primer for sore, cracked lips. Can’t wait to try this.


Akane Mask Cocoon Nocturne | £18.00 |
A mask that you can sleep in and rinse off the next day? Count me in. I’ve always wanted to try an overnight mask and will be reviewing this soon as I’d love to see the effects of this. The mask contains apples from the Japanese Akane tree and black tea extract with helps to improve signs of fatigue and help make skin radiant. Ooh!

TheBalm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen | £10.00-£11.00 |
The staniac is a great multi-use tint that can be applied on either the lips or the cheeks. It’s a water-based product, which means that it’ll stay on a lot longer than oil based products.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer | £28.00 |
A lightweight, non-greasy gel that keeps makeup looking fresh all day? Count me in. I’ve wanted to try this product for ages and am so happy that it’s been included within the box this month. In November’s box, there will also be another Laura Mercier product; Oh Birchbox, you do spoil us don’t ya??

So there we have it. Birchbox have always been a consistency great company who provide amazing and generous samples and I honestly cannot fault them one bit. Long may they continue! If you would like to subscribe and see what it’s all about, click this link to join.
