September Birchbox Review & Discount Code

Sunday, 21 September 2014

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and have had a great weekend. I've spent mine relaxing and sorting out all of my make up, washing brushes, etc after being away at my Universitys Freshers all week, so it's been nice to just chill out and catch up on sleep for a few days! Anyway, today I thought I would share with you what I got in my September Birchbox. 

Benefit 'It's Potent' Eye Cream Sample

The first product I saw was this little Benefit sample and it was the one I was most excited about. I received another one of these in a Christmas set a couple of years ago and loved it, so I was happy to receive another and hopefully it will sort out my dark circles from all my recent late nights. Last time I had this sample it lasted me ages too, so it allows you to get a good idea of weather the product is for you. I also know that Benefit don't give out this size sample for free, so I was pleased that Birchbox had included it. 

Plush Therapy Face and Body Scrub Sample

I also received this Plush Therapy scrub in this months Birchbox. I've said this before and I'll say it again...I hate receiving face scrubs in these kind of boxes as I know I'll never use them. My face is very sensitive to scrubs so I like to stick with what I know and not risk aggravating it. However, I will use this on my body, it's quite a small pot though so I'm not sure how far it'll go...maybe I'll just scrub one arm haha!

Agave Hair Oil Sample

This is another sample which I think is particularly small in this months box. I love hair oil and am willing to try them all, as you never know what will work on your hair, however I'd normally use more oil than what is included in this little sample because my hair is quite long and dry. It will be good to take away though I guess. 

Model Co Powerlash Black Mascara

A girl can never have too many mascaras and I seem to be collecting a fair few from subscription boxes like these. The Model Co Powerlash is pretty good though and has earned a place in my handbag as I love the big chunky brush and the jet black colour, and it's a pretty decent sized sample. I also noticed that some other boxes contained some Model Co lip glosses - I would have loved to get them instead of some of the other bits I received! 

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in Rio Sample

At first I was really excited when I saw this lipstick sample, as a self confessed lipstick hoarder...then I saw the shade. Rio is a dark brown-red shade and is just not my colour. I think it will suit darker skin tones, but it just washes my pale skin out. 

Urban Fruit Baked Pineapple

This isn't pictured because basically, I'm a bit of a piggy. I couldn't resist opening the bag and trying them before I had the chance to picture them and one is never sure enough the whole bag had gone, oops. I liked these, but it's not something I would like from a Birchbox if you know what I mean. I am subscribed to Birchbox to receive beauty samples, so getting food, although tasty, isn't what I would prefer from my box. 

Birchbox Happy Days Photo Clip

At the moment I'm really unsure what to do with this. I obviously know what a photo clip is, but it doesn't really go with my room so it's just sitting in my 'moving out' box for when I finish Uni and hopefully get a job - maybe it will look good on my desk?

So there you have it, everything I received this month. I am happy with this months box despite it being full of only samples - mainly because I received the Benefit sample. However, after seeing what others received (beauty blenders, Korres samples, Lipglosses...) I see that there are definitely some better products I would have preferred to received. If you would like to try Birchbox for yourself, I am offering £5 off your first Birchbox to all of my readers. All you need to do is use the code BBX5LASHES and that's almost half off your first box! 

Lots of Love,
