Best believe it has taken me whole month to get this far.
I ordered my September Birchbox at the start of month and was super excited until I received my October box, in October, and never received my September box! Baffled, dazed, confused and after endless complaining to Birchbox and slamming them on twitter later cause I’m a frustrated gyal after 3 emails, they pulled through.
YA GIRL GOT 2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 TO SAY SORRY, so for this I will be going through BOTH boxes for y’all. Naturally I either wanted the month refunded or something nice but to receive 2 boxes was pretty badass so I was uber happy.
So I received a September Box and a May box!
So many goodies to go through and show you all, I can’t wait to use them!
The reason I decided now I am working full time to get Birchboxes was because when I was at Uni I really felt like I lost complete and utter care of my own self care and beauty regimes, I am really excited to get back into looking after myself a whole lot more.
September 2019 Box!
For starters I love the motivational quotes that are on the top of all the products when you slide the boxes open. September’s Quote was short and sweet!
I definitely tear the front of the product booklets off for them to go on my wall. I have already rippe Octobers in Half so that will be a fun blog post to (try to) write! SO the products in September’s box were all about nurturing your skin a little more!
1. Benefit Cosmetics, Posietint!
You can put this tint on your lips and cheeks! To receive a benefit product as well in these boxes is awesome considering their value! Now I’m not usually one to use tint so I am unsure of how this will look but hey, next time I’m out I am definitely ready to give this a go! – RRP £15.50.
2. Generation Clay Brightening Face Mask
‘Favourite Face Mask’ of the Birchbox Beauty Awards 2019! – RRP 28.50.
3. Marcelle Micellar Water
I used this yesterday to take of my make up and the Aloe in this product is so FRESH. The best part is this being Rinse-free, I am really specific and simple when it comes to make-up and routines. “Strip things back to basics and forget our lengthy skincare routine” and they are not lying with this, mega impressed! only downside was I got some in my eye and it really hurt but thats my own stupidity because who opens their eyes while taking of mascara huh? Me. – RRP £18.00
4. Number 4 Comb,Prep and Protect
I used this one on Monday and man my hair smelt fresh and soft and it even brought my waves back. I found since starting work they disappeared along with my hair care routine so i felt really good the next day seeing the difference which is rare! – RRP £26.25
5. Baija Body Cream
MAN THIS SMELLS SO DAMN GOOD and even feels amazing on my skin! – RRP £15.90
May 2019 Box!
Huge thank you once again to Birchbox for sending this box to me, I received my September Birchbox and this May Birchbox! (After my October one). This box had an lovely quote inside which made me excited to travel;
1. Lord & Berry Eye Pencil
I SWEAR by eyeliner, so to get this eye pencil was amazing as I can never have enough, I get through at least 1 a month. – RRP £13.00.
2. Lottie London Blush Crush
This one was Full Size! Which is awesome for my make up bag and always appreciated. This one pigmented really well on my skin, I did try this for dinner last night and it was really lovely. – RRP £4.95.
3. Beautaniq Nourishing Mascara
Again like the eyeliner, I use mascara religiously. This is also pocket size so I brought it to work with me and now it lives happily in my handbag! – RRP £12.00
4. Mimitika SPF 50 Suncream
As cute as this one Is I live in England, I’ll keep this one for my holidays and travelling! I am excited to use this as I cant use a lot of sun creams due to my skin being so sensitive but this one is “free from harmful ingredients!” – RRP £17.50
5. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
A pre-pre shower ritual to go by, I am so excited to get into these new hair products for before and after to make my hair healthier. – RRP £9.50.
So that is my May & September boxes all wound up!
I am very excited to try all these new things, Uni really made me lose sight of my self care routines so Im really excited to start feeling that little more human and pampered again.
Tune in for October’s Birchbox This weekend!
