September 2016 Birchbox

This month, I found myself desperate for my Birchbox to come just so I could test out the products that came with it. The theme of this month’s box is Heroes and it comes in a draw rather than a box again. I also love the design of the box, it’s quite simple and it matches the colour scheme of my bedroom with the pinks.

ModelCo Highlighting Trio – £14
I haven’t tested this out yet as I have barely worn make up since getting the box but I can’t wait to! It is a creamy formula and comes with 3 different shades (obviously as it is a highlighting trio…) It has the shades Champagne, Peach Bellini & Bronze. From swatching the Champagne shade on the back of my hand, it is quite pigmented and gives a subtle shimmer, it would definitely be build able and you could even add a powder highlight over the top if you’re like me and love your highlighting to be glowing.

Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray – £4.29
I don’t tend to use hairspray so much but it is always handy to have a can in my hair draw just incase. I love Batiste as well, I am forever using their dry shampoo so I’m sure I will love their hairspray just as much. This also sounds amazing as it is supposed to add extra volume to your hair, which is perfect for nights out.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Blemish -Less – £29
The reason there is no picture of this is because I took it out of the box to test the other day and I have no clue what I have done with it! Another reason why I should photograph things before I use them! Anyway, this is a water-based gel primer that is supposed to keep your make up in place for longer. I have only tested this the once and can’t say I noticed a massive difference from my regular primers, but I will definitely have to test this out more once I’ve found it!
Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil – £10
This is probably the product that I was most excited for, as I have a lip balm from Nuxe and it is the best lip balm I have ever tried. I have only had the chance to test this once but I am so impressed. It left my skin feeling so soft and smooth and I could definitely notice a difference in my skin when I hadn’t used this! And considering that it is only £10, it’s amazing!

Polaar The Genuine Lapland Cream – £15
This face and body cream claims to pamper, protect and repair all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin. It is quite a thick cream and feels very hydrating on the skin. I also love the scent as it is packed with 3 arctic berries. I can’t wait to give this a real test in the winter months when my skin becomes so dry.
