Birchbox – October Beauty Box

I was so excited about this month’s beauty box from Birchbox as I’d seen the spoilers, so when I got the dispatch email I decided not to leave the house until Mr Yodel arrived. Luckily I didn’t have to stay in all day!

Beauty Buzz is the theme of the October beauty box from Birchbox, celebrating award-winning products and celebrity favourites.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser This is the product that got me all excited and the reason why I spent half my day indoors waiting for the courier! I’ve heard that this is amazing, with a sheer, lightweight formula to add a healthy glow. I can’t wait to try it, I just hope it matches my skintone! (14.7ml)

KMS Curl Up Wave Foam Mousse My hair has a bit of a natural wave to it but most of the time I leave it as it is or I straighten it out; this product encourages curls while protecting from heat so I’m keen to see how it works on my hair. (75ml)

theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac This product is quite similar to Benefit’s Benetint, a sheer lip and cheek stain. (1.2ml)

Dr Lipp Nipple Balm for Lips I’ll be honest, I think this is a way overpriced product. Lansinoh nipple cream contains 3 times the amount of the same product and it’s cheaper too. Faced with the choice of 15ml of lanolin cream for £11.00 or 45ml of lanolin cream for £9.00, it’s a no brainer which one I’d pick! (3ml)

Akane Mask Cocoon Nocturne A gorgeous smelling mask that is used overnight to hydrate tired thirsty skin. It sounds wonderful, I can’t wait to use it. (12ml)

Egyptian Magic These three sachets of this cult multi-purpose skin cream are a ‘beauty extra’ in this month’s box. It’s an all-natural cream which can be used on skin and hair. (3 x 3ml)

UltraDEX Interdental Brushes I’m obsessed with looking after my teeth. I had braces in my teens so don’t want to ruin the hard work I went through! These brushes are a ‘lifestyle extra’. (30 brushes and travel case)

I pretty much say this every month, but once again Birchbox have nailed their beauty box. I love, and will use, everything that’s in it this month. There’s also a little teaser telling us that next month’s box will contain another Laura Mercier product, I can’t wait to find out what that’s going to be!
