September Birchbox 2014
The theme for this month's Birchbox is "Happy Days"*, taking us back to a nostalgia-filled youth and reminding us of all those epic moments in our lives.
So, upon opening the box, I spied a truly lovely little gadget for holding any photos or memorabilia I deemed worthy to display on my bedside table (bonus that I received my favourite colour). There's even a special money off voucher to use at Photobox to get some prints sorted. I just know I'll be reminiscing about my trip to Florida and California in a few months time, so a great opportunity for me to relive those memories through physically photographs. I can't remember the last time I got one printed!
Onto the epic miniatures; a vial of Agave Healing Oil Treatment, perfect to nourish unloved summer hair back to full health. A tub of Premae Mild Pro Dermabrasion that's vegan and helping me with my congested skin. A truly gorgeous bullet of Jane Iredale Lip Plumper that, due to the spearmint and peppermint oils, really works to achieve fuller lips. Never hurts when a lipstick smells good enough to eat! Modelco Powerlash Black Mascara caught my eye, as I've been lusting after something new, unfortunately is contains Methylisothiazolione, so I'll have to give this one a miss. Then, the sample I have been coveting; Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream. Banishing my dark circles with just a few taps, you're preaching to the converted!
To finish up the box nicely, Birchbox have thrown in a packet of tasty Urban Fruit pieces. I got Smashing Strawberry and it's safe to say that bag didn't hang round long after the photoshoot...
