This was one of my many ‘sitting on the stairs’ waiting for the postman days! Except today I wasn’t sat on the stairs I was sat in bed in three jumpers. You can definitely tell its heading to the winter months because I’m ill! I have a chest infection again, a pretty serious one too as my left lung isn’t taking in much oxygen!
Let’s get on to the main topic shall we before you all fall asleep reading about my illness’. This is my first Birchbox! Now you see why I was so excited. For readers that don’t know; Birchbox is a monthly subscription box just like Glossybox, though it’s a little cheaper and from what i’ve seen from other peoples posts this last few months its the better box out the two (in my opinion). Lets just say I’m not overly impressed with Glossybox at the moment but we shall see how I feel when this months box arrives!
This months Birchbox is all about Working It! It comes with a cute leaflet telling you what you have inside your box and also comes with another leaflet which had information about how to check your boobs for cancer. I thought this was really good as not many would know exactly what they are looking for if they did check. I’ll hold my hands up and say I actually didn’t but all thanks to Birchbox I now know.
The reason I decided to get Birchbox is because of seeing others boxes on Facebook groups, twitter and blogs etc and every month I’d love to receive at least three of the items in their boxes. Yet when I receive my Glossybox I end up giving away most products or selling them on Facebook groups, depop or ebay!
I was over the moon when I opened my box this morning! The things that were in there I was pretty happy with… Some of the things could have been a bigger sample but I’m not too fussed as i would normally end up buying the full sized product anyway if I liked the product!
This month I received:
- Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream
- KMS California TAME FRIZZ Taming Creme
- Shaveworks The Cool Fix
- Pixie by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm
- Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm
- Birchbox Lipstick Pen
I was super happy to receive the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream I have lusting after this for months but didn’t want to spend £25.50 on a product that wasn’t going to suit my skin! So now I get to try it before I buy! I hope it does suit me as I love benefit products and have very high respect for the brand! I haven’t yet tried a product from them that I didn’t like!
I am also super happy to have received the Pixie Shea Butter Lip Balm, this has caught my eye of recent and was thinking about purchasing a few in the near future. Now I have one to start off the collection! The colour I received was a gorgeous shade to! The shade is Pipe Rasberry, I’d say its crossed between a coral and a deep pink. The lip balm also smells amazing!
The other three products I’ve never come across and I’m excited to give them a try, I’ve heard of Balance Me but never tried any of their products! So it shall be interesting to see how I get on with those three.
I loved my Birchbox this month! Did you?
