What's in my October Birchbox?



I always look forward to a Birchbox delivery - they just seem that little bit more superior than other subscription boxes - but to be reminded that it's October already was a bit of a shock!! My favourite month of the year always goes quickly, but luckily this month's box was on hand to help me slow down and look after number one.

This month's theme is Work It! and has been created in association with breast cancer awareness organisation Coppafeel, so is pretty pink and girly! I got stuck straight into these products as they are all things I'd use, so I was grateful for that. The idea of this box is to help us focus on our inner wellbeing with a little pampering to help us shine. There's also a handy leaflet about boob checking which everyone should read!

Cattier Pink Clay Face Mask (full size £4.25) I received two of these individual masks and wasted no time using one of them as soon as I got home on Friday to find my box had arrived. The clay helps with any oiliness but is far from stripping, as the mask is packed with aloe vera to soothe and calm.

KMS California Free Shape Hot Flex Creme (full size £15.50) I've yet to use this but I'm hoping this sought after hair product will help me get a proper blow dry look at home! The heat activated creme comes in a decent size sample so hopefully this will last a while!

Shaveworks The Cool Fix (Full size £11.00) I read about this product on the blogosphere a while back but had forgotten about it. As someone prone to bumpy knees after shaving and the occasional ingrown hair (aren't we all?) I've already started using this and have seen a difference already.

Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm (£8.00) This full size sample is just gorgeous, A creamy, rose tinted lip balm that smells divine and is incredibly moisturising. Having recently been disappointed by Maybelline's coveted Baby Lips range I've popped this into my handbag as a luxury replacement.

Lollipops Nail Laquer (£7.00) This full size classic postbox red is perfect for a chic work look or casual weekend style. I've been keeping it dark for autumn of late but this might just make

Birchbox Lipstick Pen I was so confused by this lifestyle extra as I couldn't understand how I could apply this through the tiny nib (D'oh!), and then in my end of the week tiredness realised this was merely a cute pen shaped like a lipstick! Hopefully others weren't as confused as I was!

All in all I think this month's Birchbox does amazingly to embody its theme of help you be your best self and to really work it!
