Birchbox September 2017

This month's Birchbox is a collaboration with Oliver Bonas (if you aren't aware of Oliver Bonas - they are a British lifestyle and fashion designer known for their stunning quirky designs). Towards the end of August I received an email from Birchbox with a choice of two different Oliver Bonas themed designs to select for my box. I chose a pink coloured box with drawn faces on it. It looks so pretty. I definitely feel that this is a box I'm willing to keep and not throw away! As with every Birchbox there is a theme to each box. This month they are embracing the saying 'work hard, play hard and be kind' - with the beginning of the new school year, this is a fitting statement!

Every Birchbox subscriber has received the following two products in their box this month, namely the Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush, Highlighter and Eyeshadow - as the title of the products suggests, this is a multi-tasking product which you can use different areas of your face. This powder is a slightly bronzer colour so it should give a good glow! The other product every Birchbox subscriber will receive is the Polaar IcyMagic Instant Eye Contour Energiser - this is a roll-on targeted at under eyes to combat dark circles and puffy eyes, it is also said to stimulate eyelash growth. This is one product in the box which I'm excited and intrigued by!

Now we move onto the products which have been selected for me based on my Birchbox beauty profile. I received the Dr PawPaw Original Clear Balm - this is another multi-tasking product in my box this month and I feel that it will be perfect for the colder months to come. You can use this product as a lip balm, moisturiser and even to soothe split ends - amazing!

The next product in my box is the Arrow BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm - again, this is another really handy product to have as we fast approach the colder months. Containing mango seed butter to moisturise your lips, this lip balm also adjusts to your own pH level so you have your very own shade suited to your lips.

Lastly is the product which I'm most excited about receiving in my Birchbox this month, and that's the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm - I cannot believe I have received this! I've been using this to take my makeup off for the last 3 years so I'm super excited to have a mini version which is a perfect size to use when travelling away somewhere.

Overall, I've been impressed with September's Birchbox, there's some really good quality products in there and the collaboration with Oliver Bonas has provided a stunning box design - there's even some stickers in the box which have been designed by Oliver Bonas!
