Hi my lovelies,
Today’s (rather belated, sorry!) post is all about my Birchbox for October. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but I’m become a little disappointed with my Birchboxes lately and I’m considering cancelling my subscription soon. It’s only £13 every month including postage, but I’m not sure I’m enjoying it as much as I used to – does anyone else feel like this?
First off, I want to apologise for not blogging or even being around for the last couple of weeks. Do you ever have those times where everything catches up with you all at once, and you feel like you don’t even have time to sleep and eat, let alone have spare time to do things you enjoy? That, plus work stress and a few days of not being very well at all, and you end up with two weeks without a blog post. So I’m sorry for not being here, and to those interested in collab-ing with me on a post, I swear I haven’t forgotten about you! I’ll be emailing as soonas I get the chance!
Anyway, October’s box design is gorgeous, and the drawer style box seems to be sticking, which is great! I’m a Sagittarius, meaning I got the Fire sign style box this month; and while I don’t really hold any belief in psychics or starsigns, I am a pretty fiery person – so think it does reflect me. The little stars on the box are actually glow in the dark too, which I love but I reckon those who need complete darkness to sleep won’t be too happy!
Last month’s box was pretty good -I loved (and I mean loved) the Nuxe shower oil and the Bioderma moisturiser, but I have little good things to say about the Batiste volume spray (really, really not good for my hair!). October is a bit of a mixed bag – I actually squealed at one of the products in here, but was ridiculously disappointed with a couple others. Let’s see what was In my box, shall we?
So what was in my box this month?
