Birchbox Uk September 2013

September 2013

It's beauty box time people! My September 2013 BirchBox Uk has just dropped through the letter box so I wanted to give you all a look at whats to come this month! This is my 2nd BirchBox and I'm still not totally convinced it's the box for me, but I have a 3 box rule before I unsubscribe!

This months theme is Backstage to Real Life. A collection of must-haves that will make sure you're ready for anything!

I do love the little bags in each box

Sneaky peek
Reverence de Bastien #4

I'm a sucker for a good red polish, it's the perfect toe colour whatever the weather (I have a thing about unpainted toe nails). This colour is so bright, with a consistency similar to Barry M and it's a full size sample too, retailing at around £16! I got colour #4 though I think there was a choice of 3 you could have got.

Bioderma Sensibio H20

WOW, this has pretty much sold this months box to me. I have been wanting to try Bioderma for ages! This product has been hyped up so much I can't wait to give it a try. Designed for normal to dry/sensitive skin, it's the holy grail of make up removers. This is a 20ml sample.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick
I'm not a massive lip stick fan. I got shade 'kitty'. I expected this to go on pretty dark but was so surprised when it matched my lip colour perfectly with just a hint of shimmer. So much so it hardly looks like I'm actually wearing anything on my lips. It smells a bit like crayons but my lips do feel really soft and smooth with this on. It's not thick at all, and works fine for day time if you want a very au natural look. Full sized sample worth around £5.

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel
Grapefruit, rosemary and juniper, this stuff smells strong! Designed to even out skin tone and texture all over the body. Use daily, massaging into the skin. I'm always on the market for new body moisturizers, and this will be the first gel I've tried. I just hope the smell fades a little after application!  I got a 40ml sample, full size retails for £31!! 

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Nourishing Body Lotion

I loved my Molton Brown Ylang Ylang shower gel in last months BirchBox and this smells exactly the same! I just wish I'd saved my shower gel and could use them both together! Not totally impressed about getting two body lotions in the one box. This one will certainly be getting used first, it just smells so delicious, it's perfect to use of an evening, so relaxing! I got a 30ml sample, full size retails for £18.

Green & Black's White chocolate
 I do love the lifestyle extras they put in each BirchBox, and this is my favourite so far! I love Green & Black's chocolate and white is my favourite! Though this is only a mouthful sized sample I will enjoy it immensly! So creamy and full of flavour - I can't see it lasting until the end of the day!

Some great products this month that I'm really looking forward to trying! Anyone get anything different to me this month?
