Birchbox UK October 2016

Hey guys and thanks for joining me today for this months Birchbox. This month Birchbox has gone with the drawer idea again with there box which I really like. The theme this month is Whats your sign? and because Im an Aries I was sent the Fire box. In the info card you get in the box it says the stars on the box glow in the dark which I think is a really fun idea.

Now lets get in to what I got.

Lord &Berry - 20100 Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick in Intimacy: This lipstick is full size and retails at £12. The colour is a really nice nude/red, Im so happy to get this colour because normal I get sent colours which just look so bad on me. This is a product that you will need to sharpen but I will be trying it out.

Oribe - Dry Texturizing Spray: This spray is a dry shampoo and texturizing spray. Its a sample size that I was sent in my box but the full size costs £19. I think for a sample size its a nice size and you can even pop it in you handbag if you wanted to.

Doux Me - Pure Spring Mist: Im happy to get this product because I was sent a face scrub by this brand in one of my other Birchboxs, its a Birchbox exclusive and the RRP is £16. The size I was sent is a sample size but I think its a really good size. This mist spray is meant to help you feel refreshed when your feeling frazzled.

NKD SKN - Daily Tan Moisturiser: I dont like this. Im just not one for using fake tan so I really cant see myself using this, Im sure its a really nice product but its just not for me. I was sent a sample size but if you wanted to buy the full size it would cost £10.

Number 4 - Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil: Really happy with this product I use hair oils all the time so I will looking forward to trying this one out. I did just get sent a sample size but you only need a wee bit when you use hair oils so I think I will get a few uses out of it. This also has a beautiful sweet smell and costs £18 for the full size.

Birchbox - Eyebrow Brush: The last thing I was sent this month from Birchbox was a eyebrow brush. Now this is full size but Im guessing you worked that out since Im not sure how you would make it a sample size. This brush is a Birchbox exclusive and costs £1.99. Im not wowed by it, its an eyebrow brush and I already have one.

This months box was ok with 4 hits and 2 misses. 

Did you get this months Birchbox? If so what did you think of it? please leave a comment to let me know.

Thanks for checking out my review.

Till next time take care x

Glossybox UK October 2016

Hey guys. So I know I normal try and do a video of what I got from Birchbox and Glossybox but I thought I would do a blog post about it instead. Im going to do one post for Glossybox and another one for Birchbox but if you would rather them both all in one post them just comment below to let me know.

Now lets get in to what I got from Glossybox this month. In this box I was sent there is 6 products with 4 of them being full size and a mystery shampoo.

New Beauty Shampoo: The size of this shampoo is a really nice size for trying it out but we have no idea what shampoo it is, there is going to be a brand reveal later this month so we can all found out was it is. Im a bit 50/50 about this because I really like the idea of keeping the brand a secret so we can judge if we like it or not but I also dont like it because I have dry curly hair and is this shampoo for dry or greasy hair? Fine or thick hair? I think I will wait for the reveal before I make my mind up about this.

Trifle Cosmetics - Lip Parfait - Buttery Lip Cream: First off the packaging for this lip stick of so cute, I really like the look of it. Its got different fruit on the packaging which is cardboard. This lip stick is one of the full size products that was in the box and the RRP is £12.95. It looks like it will be a really nice long wear lip stick but I hate the colour, Im not going to lie about it but if I used this colour I would ill or died which is a shame cause I really do like the look of this lip stick I just really dont like the colour.

The Body Shop - Drops of Youth Concentrate: Im really looking forward to trying this, its a small size sample but you only need a couple of drops so I think its a good size for a sample. I also really like the smell of the product which is organic and its meant to soften, smooth and brighten your skin. The full size price for this £25.

Universal Beauty Cosmetics - Secret Flush: This is a soothing cream blusher and lip stain duo. This is full size and retails for £15, I really like the packaging and the smell is so good like candy bracelets. The colour is not something I would normal go and buy but I really like it, its pinky/peachy and I feel like there is some glitter in it or shimmer.

Bee Good - Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator: Im so happy for getting this product because I got sent in my May Glossybox Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser and I really enjoyed trying it. This is full size and costs £10.50 and if its as good as the moisturiser then its a good price. The packaging is cute and fun and the smell is beautiful. This is meant to exfoliate, hydrate and calm the skin and I cant wait to try it.

PS...PRO - Finishing Powder: This powder is by Primark and is full size and retails at £5. The packaging its really nice and the powder feels very soft. Its meant to be lightweight and I think it will be lightweight when I try it. Its also meant to be ultra-fine and I would agree with that.

So over all not a bad box just a shame about the lip stick colour and I think I will wait to try the shampoo till the brand is revealed.

Did you get this months Glossybox? Let me know what you think of it in the comments and let me know if you have tried any of the products that I got.
