October Birchbox

I can't believe I've only got 2 months left of my Birchbox subscription! The theme for October's box is Work It! The box aims to help you tackle your plans both within the working day and outside the office. I love the little pink bag that all the goodies came in this month, I think it's a nice change to the drawstring bags and definitely something I will get use out of again!

Cattier Pink Clay Face Mask

This face mask aims to soften skin and illuminate your complexion. Not only that but it's also pink! A face mask will cost you £4.25.

Shaveworks The Cool Fix

I've never heard of this product before and didn't even know it was something that existed! It's a cooling lotion which treats ingrown hairs, razor bumps and redness after hair removal. I always get red bumps after shaving so I'm looking forward to seeing if this can calm it down. A full size bottle will cost you £11.

Meaningful Beauty Glowing Serum

Again, I've never seen this product before. This serum enhances radiance and also has anti-ageing properties. A flu size version costs £30.95. Unless this is amazing stuff, I'm not sure I'll be investing at that price!

Birchbox Lipstick Pen

This little addition to the box is so cute. I love quirky pens and this is perfect to use to take notes on my makeup course!

Pixi By Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm

I love the packaging of this cute lip balm. It's moisturising shea formula and the slight tint makes it perfect to keep in your bag for on the go. The colour can also be built up for a slightly bolder colour. One of these will cost you £8.

KMS California Hair Play Playable Texture

I'm a sucker for a good hair product, especially at the moment as my course is covering hair. I'm always on the lookout for different styling products so am looking forward to popping this in my kit and giving it a try. It can be used on wet or dry hair which is a bonus. A full size can costs £15.50. 

I was pretty happy with all the products that I received in my Birchbox this month. I'm looking forward to the next couple of months in the hope that there will be some products ideal for the cold winter weather!

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you get in your box? Or have you tried any of these products? 



  1. The masks sound awesome, and that is such a cute lipstick pen! The lip balm is really surprising, though, because it gives a bigger pop of color than I thought it would! It sounds like you got some awesome stuff!

    1. I love the pen, it's perfect especially for making notes on my makeup course! Yeah I was definitely not expecting the colour payoff to be so good, definitely impressed. X
