I’m A Birchbox Newbie | September 2016 Birchbox Plus a FREE Bonus Box(#BirchboxUK)


Hi Girls,

It’s been a while since I cancelled my Glossybox subscription and I have been trying to decide which beauty subscription box I should try next and last week I subscribed to my first ever Birchbox.

I saw tha Birchbox were running a two-for-one promotion on their Facebook page so I thought I would take advantage of the freebie box and sign myself up! First time subscribers were gifted a FREE BONUS BOX when entering the promo code ‘BONUSBOX‘ at the checkout.

I’m not one to refuse a bargain and I’m happy that I got myself two boxes for the price of one and a load of fab stuff for just £10, I really can’t complain! I signed up just in time for the September box and my free box was the Millie Macintosh inspired box which I believe was the July box.

Not bad for a tenner, eh!

Oh I love the highlighting trio, it is an absolute dream pot. I’ve literally used it every day since my Birchbox arrived. I was given two options to choose for my full-sized product, either the Highlighting Trio or the Creme Blush but I had to choose the Highlighting Trio because it looked amazing and I have seen some good reviews on this. It can be used as a highlight, a blush and an eye shimmer and I just love it! I love the Volume Spray from Batiste too, it’s a first time using this and I like it a lot, it really does give volume to the roots, it worked instantly and it makes my hair smell absolutely lush so I will be using this again and I will possibly buy the full size bottle! The Nuxe shower oil is not a favourite of mine to be honest as I have other shower oils I like better, but it is a nice treat and it leaves skin smelling divine but I doubt I’ll be buying the full size product. I’m happy with my first box it’s just I’m a little gutted that I didn’t receive the Laura Mercier Primer like some others have but oh well!

There was also a gift offer in my September box for a FREE LALABOX worth £12.69. You can choose 36 of your fave snaps to receive inside a gorg gift box all you have to pay after entering the promo code is £2.99 – so I am just about to order mine now! The offer is valid until 31st October 2016 so even if you ain’t a Birchbox subscriber, enter BIRCHBOXUK at checkout and Bob’s your uncle – you got yourself a free box!

Pleased with my free box, I really can’t complain! I love the little drawstring make-up bag… the material is not the best quality but it will come in handy and I will defo use it. I really like this lip gloss too, it’s such a pretty colour. I’m not one who usually likes fragranced lotions and creams because they can irritate my psoriasis but the Rituals Magic Touch Body Cream is something else, it smells absolutely amazing and I’ve become addicted to applying it constantly because I love how it smells!The Nails Inc polish is a gorgeous nude mini nail polish, it’s very pretty and I have actually got the full size but this will come in handy if I ever run out or for travelling. Now my fave product from my free box has to be John Frieda’s Anti Frizz Primer. I absolutely love this, it smells like absolute gorgeousness and it has given my damaged and frizzy hair a little bit of TLC, making my wavy hair feel very soft to touch, I love it.

I will be reviewing a couple over the next few days so keep a look out for my posts! I will definitely continue to subscribe to Birchbox, I’m happy with both of the boxes I received and I have just recieved my October box like an hour ago so today is a very good day indeed!
