This month Birchbox designed the boxes to match each subscriber’s star sign. As my star sign is Sagittarius, my box was fire. My box was filled with reviving products to help freshen and de-stress this month. It definitely worked ; )
Firstly is Manefits beauty planner mask. I used this mask a few days ago, on Halloween night, as the mix of sugar and face paint was starting to take its toll on my skin. It really brightened up my face and reduced the number of blemishes appearing.The size of this mask sheet mask was a slight issue for me though as I found it too big for my face.Because of this, it wouldn’t smooth perfectly on my face but apart from that it was a really lovely mask.
Next is Monu Spa’s rosewood reviving mist. How have I never used this product before? It is amazing for a little boost during the day if you can feel the stress starting to creep up.It leaves my face feeling so fresh and it is also really useful during the day to fix and freshen up your makeup. It has a beautiful, reviving scent of sandalwood, rosewood, and lemon
Another product I received in this months October Birchbox is Aromatherapy Associates London revive body gel.This gel is really good for relaxing and relieving stress. It instantly cools the skin when applied and it has a lovely, refreshing scent of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper.
The Birchbox Eyebrow brush I received this month is my least favourite product this month.I found the top of my brush quite loose and hard to use, although the tool itself is very good.
Next is Number 4’s fluoro 5 elixir restore and repair oil.At first, I wasn’t sure about adding oil to my already naturally oily hair but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it really gives my hair more life.It leaves my hair feeling really silky and smooth and it gives my hair a really sleek finish.
And lastly, Lord and Berry’s maxi matte crayon lipstick in the shade intimacy.This lip crayon is unbelievably easy to apply and the colour is beautiful.The texture of this lip crayon is like rubbing a lip balm on your lips but the finish gives the illusion that it is a lipstick. It has really good coverage,lasts really long,and it’s matte. Who doesn’t love matte !
And that was my Birchbox review. Hope you enjoyed it !
