October's Birchbox 2015

I love receiving my Birchbox, it's my favourite time of the month. I had just gotten back from New York when I received mine in the post, and I literally delved into it and used it all in one go! I think it is safe to say I loved everything that was in it. Especially the When Travel Mate Sheet Mask. It was just so perfect, and definitely needed after all the travelling I had done the previous week.

In October's box there was:

1. 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze - A lip colour formulated with nourishing avocado and cocoa butters.
Verdict: I absolutely loved the colour. It was very neutral, perfect for work and it applied smoothly. It is quoted in having a matte finish, but I found it was just slightly glossy. The packaging was absolutely gorgeous too, and so sleek.

2. Bioderma Sensibio - The original Parisian micellar water.
Verdict: This was my first time using micellar water, I am a more of a cleansing wipe kinda gal. I actually really liked this and I was shocked by what I saw on the cotton pad after just one swipe. I think I may have to make some changes in my nightly routine to accommodate micellar water.

3. Parlor by Jeff Chastain - An all in one hair protecting spray.
Verdict: I used this a few times and didn't notice a dramatic difference in the condition of my hair. I think I will just stick with John Frieda's Frizz Ease Serum.

4. Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel - This shower gel instantly changes into foam on contact with water.
Verdict: I really liked this product. It didn't dry my skin out, and smelled extremely pleasant. I love foaming shower gels, I don't know what it is, I just always feel cleaner and more pampered? For the price though, there are similar, and cheaper products on the market which are just as good.

5. When Travelmate Sheet Mask - A moisture replenishing and refreshing sheet mask.
Verdict: I was absolutely delighted to receive this mask, it was such perfect timing too. After wearing this mask for just 30 minutes my skin felt plumper and more nourished.  

6. English Laundry No. 7 Signature for Her - This is advertised as a linen fresh scent.
Verdict - This scent is very wearable and unobtrusive. I love it, but I don't think I am willing to leave my Chanel signature scent just yet!

And that's all from this months box, and I am already looking forward to next months!

Love, Jo.
