May Birchbox Goodies!

So this month we are naturally still deep in quarantine times mid Covid-19. A few restrictions have been loosened but you best believe I am still staying inside. And with staying inside means DELIVERIES. And deliveries means my May Birchbox, or BirchTIN I should say, has arrived!

This month delivered a beautiful lil’ tin of wonder to my front door in peachy colours and floral tones! Another beautiful tin to add for bits and bobs for storage as I will be using these products asap!

So what did I get in this months haul?

Manna Kadar Hot Pink Black Mascara – A beautiful shaped product to go with the immense colour of hot pink. I love mascara. I’m a huge fan, always hoarding that shit and winged eyeliner so I was super happy to have received this and can’t wait to try it out on my Saturday weekly Zoom chats where I actually do my make up! Flake free and fuller lashes fuck me uP! RRP – £23.00.

Balance Me PHA Clarifying Mist – Spray this bad boy on anywhere your spots are being a pain. This PHA spray unblocks pores and brightens your complexion. Its also really really refreshing and I need this in my life because Corona Isolation Break outs are REAL. RRP – £18.00.

Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Mask – Now as I have such sensitive skin I offer a lot of my face masks to my best girlfriends and I know they LOVE them. But this time, I might give this one a go as it sounds amazing and hopefully my skin shouldn’t react. This was invigorates, detoxify, refines and brightens your skin! Apparently 96% of people see results, can’t say no to that aye? RRP – £41.90.

Luxliss Argan Oil & Marula Conditioner – I am STRAIGHT on this. I have long hair and when I say long hair I mean ‘Just above my arse and can nearly sit on it’ long. So finding a good conditioner for my hair is SO important and I’ve used this before so I KNOW it works wonders so I was gassed to see this in my tin! Argan and Marula oils being hydration queens this will NOT let you down. RRP – £19.00.

Sunny Isle Black Castor Oil Eyelash and Eyebrows Growth Serum – Now this product made my entire Birchtin smell amazing. And this product is FULL SIZE as well and usually RRP £17.00. Although I can’t say I will be using it asap as quarantine is helping my eyebrows grow don’t you worry. I haven’t seen a brow bar in at least 3 months.

Until Next month! Or Not, as I am finally cancelling my subscription, Its been good Birchbox but ya girl has to save for some BIG travels up and coming once this is all over. Its been a pleasure and thank you for seeing what I got each month!

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.

Tune in for October’s Birchbox This weekend!
