Birchbox October Review

I’ve always wanted to get a beauty box subscription so when I saw I could get 50% my first order I jumped at the chance of trying this out! So for £5+postage I got 6 products, which was absolutely amazing: This months box was based on star signs which I thought was a great concept, here is what I got:

  1. Rituals Hammam Body Mud RRP £14

I’ve used this scrub a couple of times now and have really enjoyed it! I feel like it leaves my skin soft. However there’s no way I would pay £14 for it and I’m happy with my current scrub.

2. Number 4 Fluror 5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil (mini) RRP £18

This had the potential to be a great product, but due to already having oily hair it didn’t do too much for my hair other than speed up how greasy my hair got. I didn’t like the feel of my hair after using this and would prefer using other products to get that shiny look.

3. Loc X Millie RRP £9

IMG_0484.JPGAt first glances this products looks too much of a bright pink for me. After trying the product the color started to grow on me. My favorite way to wear this is with a slightly lighter gloss on top, this gives it more of a natural look, making it perfect for a every day makeup look. I’m also tempted to look at other colors of this lip crayon.

4. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (mini) RRP £16

Sleeping in a different bed does take some getting useful. Especially at university when the beds are exactly the most comfortable beds I’ve slept on. After only using this spray twice I have noticed a difference when sleeping with the spray. It smells lovely and allows me to fall asleep easier and get a better night sleep. I would recommend but the price for the full sized products is a lot more than what I personally think its really worth.

5. Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream (mini) RRP £24.50

This cream is very moisturising and feels so great on my face! This is packed with antioxidants that smooth the appearance of fine lines. I tend to use this before I sleep. Although this is a good product I really dislike the smell, its very floral and just not my cup of tea.

6. Doux Me Pure Spring Mist RRP £16

IMG_0485.JPGI LOVEEEE this product. I’ve never used a product like this before and I’m obsessed with this! I use it daily and my skin feels so soft after! I would totally recommend this product to anyone.

Overall there has been some great products with a wide range of diversity. However I wanted more beauty and makeup products then I received so its not quite the box for me. The box would also be better if it was personalized to preferences, but for £5 I can’t really complain. I did enjoy the process but I don’t think I’ll be continuing my subscription.
