Happy Birchday Birchbox!

Last year I jumped on the Birchbox bandwagon. I was so excited to receive my first box and I couldn't wait for it to arrive, which only lead to more heart break when I saw how rubbish it was!

This month I've given them the benefit of the doubt and decided to celebrate their birthday with them and treat myself at the same time. Hooray for birthdays!

As it's a special month there was a choice of two box designs, I went for the balloons but there was also a stripey patterned one, both were really nice!

My order took 4 working days to arrive which I don't think is bad at all, but then again the postage and packaging costs an extra £2.95 on top of the £10 box. I don't really like having to pay for postage on top of the price for the subscription, that extra 3 quid a month does add up after all.

This months box is rad though! I'm really happy with the samples I received! I will definately use all of them, even if it's only once. They're all really handy products, which if they perform well, I might repurchase! Woo! Success!

I'm looking forward to trying the Benefit POREfessional: license to blot as I do suffer with oily skin and it has always been recomended to me to try out. I'm really hoping that this will live up to the hype!

The Cheeky Lip Pencil in Humble Brag from Laqa & Co looks really nice. It's perfect to pop in my bag as (like the name suggests) its both a lip colour and blush so no longer will I have to haul around lipsticks and blushers. Very handy to take out with you on nights when things get lost...

What I was really impressed with is the the Birchbrush! It's basically a small Tangle Teezer which is rad! That's definately something I will use a lot.

Birchbox can be bought from here. Boxes can be purchased as a rolling month subscription or a one off. I opted for one month only this time round, but I am pleasantly surprised at what I received so I might have to resubscribe, or atleast ask for another one for Christmas?!
