Beauty boxes have gotten a bit of a hard time of late, but for me the concept is still a great one – discover products and brands you would never have stumbled across normally, all wrapped up in an exciting and affordable package for you to enjoy. Birchbox have always been a favourite of mine, taking care and attention to the little details; not only do their products come packaged in handy little bags that can be re-used, but they offer just a little bit more than the average. Each month you’ll receive a selection of samples that the Birchbox team
have tried themselves, sourced from both well-known brands and emerging
gems. The subscription service includes everything from skincare to
makeup, as well as fun non-beauty extras – like this handy little
lipstick pen in October’s box. Not only that, but you’ll also benefit
from the Birchbox magazine which features beauty articles, expert
interviews and lots more content to discover online. Furthermore, when you’ve fallen in love with one of your samples and are ready for more,
you can purchase full-size versions directly from the Birchbox Shop and
benefit for a generous loyalty programme – collect Birchbox Points and
save on any full-size or gift purchase too! What’s not to love?
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s the perfect time to
focus on our health and wellbeing; Birchbox have partnered with
CoppaFeel this month to provide you with all the information you need to spot the
early signs and symptoms of breast cancer, as well as some cute pink beauty samples that
will have you looking and feeling your best no matter what. They’ve even
included a 14-day planner with motivational messages and little goals,
helping you to inject enthusiasm back into your life and make a little
progress. Birchbox say: “This month, we’re bringing you beauty products
to help you ‘work it’ and get motivated to tackle whatever your days
will bring. Tick off the tasks in your 14-day planner with your Birchbox
lipstick pen and make some progress towards your goals this October!”
My box included some awesome treats, including my favourite Pixi lipbalm and some awesome Balance Me Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm – if you don’t know the brand already, this is the perfect introduction that will have you hooked. There’s some fab KMS California Hot Flex Creme to add definition and movement to your hair style, as well as Cindy Crawford’s Glowing Serum… Well, if it’s good enough for a supermodel! I love the concept behind Birchbox and think that October’s box is a great introduction to some awesome brands and products, while helping to support an incredibly worthwhile cause. All of the samples inside this month’s box are available in
full-size at birchbox.co.uk/shop – with free shipping on all the featured October brands! There’s no reason not to give Birchbox a try this Autumn and give yourself the gift of beauty…
