Birchbox – September 2016: The Unveiling 

It’s Birchbox time again and I am loving the drawer type box again. This will look perfect in my new study!

This months box has a heroes theme and was inspired by subscriber and competition winner Philippa Colliass and her mood board. Each product is either from an iconic brand or a problem-solving cult favourite.

So what did I get in the box?

LaLaLabox 

First up a freebie from LaLaLab. I get to choose 36 of my photographs to be printed into a lovely box, all I have to pay is the £2.99 shipping cost. 

Bioderma: Hydrabio Sérum (sample size, full size £18)

I love a good skincare item and I have yet to try anything from Bioderma. This serum promises to boost hydration and restore the skins radiance. A great product I can’t wait to try.

ModelCo: Highlighting Trio (full size £14)

I got to choose between two full size products from ModelCo either the Highlighting Trio or the Crème Rouge.

I choose the stunning Highlighting Trio which has three radiance-enhancing creamy pigments which look beautiful on top of cheekbones, brow bones and eyelids giving a radiant glow. Love it.

Nuxe: Prodigieux Shower Oil (sample size, full size £10)

This has a beautiful fragrance. I could smell it before opening the box! This is a luxurious shower oil softens the skin & leaves a lovely fragrance. Looking forward to trying this out in the shower! 

Amika: Bombshell Blowout Spray (sample size, full size £14.99)

I have never used a blowout spray before. To be honest I can count the times I’ve used a hairdryer in the last five years on my hand…. I just don’t use a hairdryer and very rarely use hair straighteners. 

I much prefer to let my hair dry naturally so I am sure I will use this spray more like a leave in conditioner as it contains nourishing antioxidants to strengthen and repair damage. 

Nailtiques: Protein Formula 2 (sample size, full size £12.50)

I love a good nail product and I did make a little squee noise when I saw this in my box! My nails have been awful recently. I have been biting them in my sleep so they are not in good condition at all. This nail treatment contains keratin protein & calcium to help bond the layers of nail together so they resist peeling and splitting which will encourage them to grow healthy and strong. I will definitely be applying a layer each day! I can’t wait I have lovely long nails again! 

All in all I have been impressed with this months box. These are all products that I will use. Next months box hints at an astrological birthday box design. As my birthday is next month I am sure that will feel extra special!

Thanks for reading and I hope you have enjoyed my post. What do you think of the products I received? Did you get the same? I love reading and replying to your comments.
