October Birchbox 2014
Birchbox have teamed up with charity Coppafeel for this months beauty-filled box of delight. After my own scare I've been meticulous at checking each month and Birchbox have even included a handy guide on what to look out for. The theme for the box is "Work It!", keeping us motivated through our 9-5 and helping us accomplish our goals through to the festive season when we'll be looking at the year ahead. There's even a little checklist planner that had some inspiring tasks to accomplish over 14 days, perfect for the eternal procrastinator. And Birchbox didn't stop there when it comes to organisation as there's even a cute miniature lipstick pen that's ever so handbag friendly for your to-do list.
What could be more appropriate in my box this month than a sample of KMS California? As I'm off to the Golden State, the Free Shape Hot Flex Creme will be the ideal travel companion for my unruly, flyaway hair. I've already been going through this like there's no tomorrow as it really smooths out my fizzy locks after a cool blow-dry to minimise damage. Balance Me make an appearance this time round too, in the form of their Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm. I'll be taking this gentle and creamy exfoliator to slough off the day and leave my skin refreshed and hydrated. A product I found to be the most interesting was Shaveworks The Cool Fix. Use after waxing or shaving to calm angry, irritated skin and prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Great for those last minute shaving disasters when you want to be fuzz free but have little time to get the right technique down.
Another apt product was the Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum, developed by Dr. Sebagh and Cindy Crawford. If you spied my Impulse 90s Challenge earlier in the year then you'll know my intense girl crush can't be paralleled. An anti-aging product applied in the morning before your usual moisturiser, it works to create a smooth and radiant base. The lips haven't been neglected either, Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm in Ripe Raspberry was my little treat and it's taken pride of place in my handbag. Colour can be built up gradually and combats even the worst of dehydrated pouts.
