I was super excited last week when my October Birchbox arrived and I wasn’t disappointed!
Not only was I excited because of the box, but also because I won the Oliver Bonas competition for a 12 month supply of Birchbox! As a person who never normally wins anything I am so happy that I won and I can continuing enjoying Birchbox for the next 12 months!
Here’s the scoop on my October goodies!
ModelCo MEGALASH Mascara
As it happened I needed a new mascara so this item was very well timed!
This mascara is a lash definition mascara and it definitely does that job very well.
There is absolutely no clumping at all, the colour is very black and every single lash is defined when I use this.
I am quite lucky that my lashes are a good length and have a nice curl to them so I just put this straight on. My lashes look really good after using the mascara. My only quibble is I normally purchase volumising mascara and this doesn’t provide volume.
But if you’re looking for a non-clumping, lash definition mascara then this is definitely what you are looking for.
Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash
A really nice, 99% natural cleanser that gets off all my make up and grime off my skin.
I have rosacea but not sensitive skin so I try to find products that won’t irritate my redness or make me breakout in spots. This is a really nice soothing cleanser.
My only gripe is that I don’t really like the smell. It’s hard to explain what the smell is but I don’t really like it.
A good addition to your skincare routine.
Anatomicals Grab Your Melons Shower Gel
If you like fruity shower gels this is a really yummy one. It smells just like melons, it lathers up nicely and just improves the overall shower experience.
It’s a really handy size for me as a I travel with work so another winner for me.
Marcelle BB Cream Gold Glow Illuminator
Unfortunately for me this BB is not the right shade for me. It’s a little on the tan side.
However, swatching it the cream felt really nice and smooth on my skin. It wasn’t greasy at all and it had a nice glow to it. Just not the right shade for me!
Ground Body Scrub
This is a coffee body scrub. I have heard about these scrubs but haven’t used one before.
It looks, smells and feels just like coffee grounds. The scent for mine is chocolate orange and I can smell this within the coffee smell.
I’m not crazy about the smell or consistency of this scrub. I’m not a major coffee lover to be fair. A great gift for someone who is but not for me.
Overall a good box for October. Looking forward to seeing what November brings!
