Unboxing October's Birchbox

October 09, 2016

Hello lovelies, 

My Birchbox has finally arrived and this months theme is Astrology, as you can see my box is also glow in the dark which I think is amazing I was really shocked to find out it actually worked. This is by far my favourite box I've received because the products have been amazing. Here's what I received:

Doux Me is a pure spring mist which aims to help you stay refreshed while soothing and hydrating your complexion. I'm so happy I received this because we've reached the weather where we need a jumper in the morning but are sweating in the afternoon. So this face mist keeps me lovely and cool throughout the day. 

Number 4's Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil (a mouthful isn't it?) is a hail oil which turns dull hair into shiny and sleek hair! They recommend using 1-2 pumps of the oil and running it through damp hair before you style it. Or, you could alternatively run it through dry hair to give it a bit of a shine.

My full-size product this month was Lord & Berry's matte crayon lipstick in Intimacy. It's a gorgeous shade and I simply line my lips using the tip and then fill them in with the pencil. It's a lovely dark pink shade as you can see above and it has a matte finish. It's gorgeous for autumn!

Other than the lipstick, this has to be my favourite product. It's a lovely sized sample and it's Rituals' Sakura Magic Touch body cream. It smells of organic rice milk and cherry blossom and for those that have never smelt it, you're missing out, it's gorgeous!

This was the one downside to my box. This is Beauty Food supplements and you simply stir it into water and drink it all. I'm not really into supplements and stuff like that because I don't think you can truly know what's in them, and that scares me. So this one has gone straight in the bin.

Lastly is Whish's renewing mud mask which you apply to clean skin, leave for 15 seconds - 2 minutes and then rinse away. It's supposed to exfoliate, brighten and purify skin because it's full of fruit enzymes!
