Birchbox – December Products!

Happy New year you wonderful people!

It’s been one hell of a year 2019, and 2020 is about to get 10x better!

This year is going to be full of positivity and travelling! Also, More blogging! Going to really try and get a hold of posting at least 2 blog posts a week whilst working a little harder on my content, I am also going self hosted with WordPress now I can finally afford it!

Lots of Sri Lanka, Cambridge and London posts to come, as well as 4 new Travel Rolls to my YouTube channel! Lots and lots in store!

So lets see what we got in this December BirchBAG I should say!

For starters it wasn’t a box, it was a gorgeous make up bag! Velvet with a gold star on the front, I have already moved all of my make up into the bag! I definitely needed a new one so I am so happy with this one, saved me buying one!

We also got a free bag of Candy Kittens! SO tasty!

1.Forgive Me Sizzle Eyeshadow Palette

This Birchbox I was going to receive 1 of 2 different eyeshadow palettes! The colours were perfect for the festive season and such a nice variety considering it was only 5 colours, they are really well pigmented when on as well! – RRP £9.00

2. Birchbox Eyeshadow Brush

We received a small eyeshadow brush with the palette, super helpful although I have so many brushes I may drown in them. – RRP £4.00

3. Daily Concepts Mother of Pearl Soap Sponge

MAN THIS SOAP SMELLS SO GOOD. I am yet to use this yet as I have a few lovely products to try in the shower but this sponge is to exfoliate and refresh your skin, it can be used up to 60 times before you need to get a new one! – RRP £6.PP

4. Percy & Reed Session Hold Spray

We love a good hairspray! Although I don’t often use hairspray as I have way too much hair and would use this entire canister on one hairdo. On the slick back hair do’s it works wonderfully! -RRP £12.50

5. Rituals Shower Oil

Another product that makes my skin feel amazingly smooth and replenished! “To Turn Every Day Routines into More Meaningful Rituals!” – RRP £8.50.

6. Vitamasques Diamond Eye Pads

A blend of Diamond Powder and Caffeine to depuff your eyes! Another eye mask for the ages, although again I can’t use this product on my face, so I am sure it works wonderfully, I just won’t find out (sad face) – RRP £4.50.

So this is the contents of my December Birchbag! By far some of the best products I have had delivered so far! Can’t wait to see what January holds!

Till next time!

Birchbox -September (& May, Surprise!) Products.

Best believe it has taken me whole month to get this far.

I ordered my September Birchbox at the start of month and was super excited until I received my October box, in October, and never received my September box! Baffled, dazed, confused and after endless complaining to Birchbox and slamming them on twitter later cause I’m a frustrated gyal after 3 emails, they pulled through.

YA GIRL GOT 2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 TO SAY SORRY, so for this I will be going through BOTH boxes for y’all. Naturally I either wanted the month refunded or something nice but to receive 2 boxes was pretty badass so I was uber happy.

So I received a September Box and a May box!

So many goodies to go through and show you all, I can’t wait to use them!

The reason I decided now I am working full time to get Birchboxes was because when I was at Uni I really felt like I lost complete and utter care of my own self care and beauty regimes, I am really excited to get back into looking after myself a whole lot more.

September 2019 Box!

For starters I love the motivational quotes that are on the top of all the products when you slide the boxes open. September’s Quote was short and sweet!

I definitely tear the front of the product booklets off for them to go on my wall. I have already rippe Octobers in Half so that will be a fun blog post to (try to) write! SO the products in September’s box were all about nurturing your skin a little more!

1. Benefit Cosmetics, Posietint!

You can put this tint on your lips and cheeks! To receive a benefit product as well in these boxes is awesome considering their value! Now I’m not usually one to use tint so I am unsure of how this will look but hey, next time I’m out I am definitely ready to give this a go! – RRP £15.50.

2. Generation Clay Brightening Face Mask

‘Favourite Face Mask’ of the Birchbox Beauty Awards 2019! – RRP 28.50.

3. Marcelle Micellar Water

I used this yesterday to take of my make up and the Aloe in this product is so FRESH. The best part is this being Rinse-free, I am really specific and simple when it comes to make-up and routines. “Strip things back to basics and forget our lengthy skincare routine” and they are not lying with this, mega impressed! only downside was I got some in my eye and it really hurt but thats my own stupidity because who opens their eyes while taking of mascara huh? Me. – RRP £18.00

4. Number 4 Comb,Prep and Protect

I used this one on Monday and man my hair smelt fresh and soft and it even brought my waves back. I found since starting work they disappeared along with my hair care routine so i felt really good the next day seeing the difference which is rare! – RRP £26.25

5. Baija Body Cream

MAN THIS SMELLS SO DAMN GOOD and even feels amazing on my skin! – RRP £15.90

May 2019 Box!

Huge thank you once again to Birchbox for sending this box to me, I received my September Birchbox and this May Birchbox! (After my October one). This box had an lovely quote inside which made me excited to travel;

1. Lord & Berry Eye Pencil

I SWEAR by eyeliner, so to get this eye pencil was amazing as I can never have enough, I get through at least 1 a month. – RRP £13.00.

2. Lottie London Blush Crush

This one was Full Size! Which is awesome for my make up bag and always appreciated. This one pigmented really well on my skin, I did try this for dinner last night and it was really lovely. – RRP £4.95.

3. Beautaniq Nourishing Mascara

Again like the eyeliner, I use mascara religiously. This is also pocket size so I brought it to work with me and now it lives happily in my handbag! – RRP £12.00

4. Mimitika SPF 50 Suncream

As cute as this one Is I live in England, I’ll keep this one for my holidays and travelling! I am excited to use this as I cant use a lot of sun creams due to my skin being so sensitive but this one is “free from harmful ingredients!” – RRP £17.50

5. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

A pre-pre shower ritual to go by, I am so excited to get into these new hair products for before and after to make my hair healthier. – RRP £9.50.


So that is my May & September boxes all wound up!

I am very excited to try all these new things, Uni really made me lose sight of my self care routines so Im really excited to start feeling that little more human and pampered again.
