Another month, another Birchbox. This months Birchbox theme is ‘Happy Days’. They decided to create this box with this particular theme because September is the month where a lot of people are going back to school.  If like me your not going back to school it’s also about reminiscing about happy memories from those times, but also being excited to create new happy memories at school or outside of, I think it’s a cute idea. If you like the look of what I got in my Birchbox make sure you head on over to the Birchbox website and order yours now!

Lets get started…

Caudalie Divine Oil 15ml – Full Size from 50 ml £18

The first item I received is the Caudalie Divine Oil. This dry oil is a multi purpose product which can be used on your hair, face and body. Caudalie is a really luxurious brand and I think this is quite generous sample size. This sample is in a glass bottle which makes it feel all the more luxurious(just me? it’s the simple things). Birchbox says ‘it has a delicate scent’, which I agree with, it does have a very pretty scent. Although I don’t use many oil products, I’m sure me or my mum will get some use out of this product. I am interested to see if it sinks in and doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy like it says.

Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream 3g – Fullsize £25.50

The next product I was very pleased to receive. Benefit is a high-end popular brand that do some lovely products, so being able to try samples from the brand makes me rather happy. My first thoughts were how blooming cute the tiny sample pot was! This product is meant to banish dark circles and smooth fine lines, you only need a tiny bit round your eyes so I think this sample will go quite far. I have used this a few times and did notice a few red blotches around my eyes, but I cant be sure its down to this product. All and all I was very happy to receive this.

Premae Mild Dermabrasion Face & Body Scrub Full Size £25

Another product I was quite happy to receive, as I have recently run out of face scrub! I’m not sure this little sample would be quite enough for the body so I’m going to be use be using it on my face. It’s a creamy consistency with olive granules to scrub yourself to smooth skin. The brand says its great for blemishes and blocked pores, so hopefully this doesn’t bring me out in spots, my skin seems to be very sensitive at the moment!

ModelCo Lip Laquer In ‘Morroco’ – Full Size £15

This was the only product I knew I was getting. At the end of august or start of  September the lovely Birchbox  gave everyone a chance to pick between a lip product in a shade from a few options or  a mascara. I chose a lip product because I am a bit obsessed with lip products. This is a really natural peachy nude and I have worn this already, it’s not sticky like some lip glosses can be! ModelCo says it provides a long-lasting colour and plenty of hydration!

Agave Healing Oil Treatment 4 ml – Fullsize from 60ml £16

I received another oil product in this months box which I wasn’t too pleased about, I think I might give this one to my mum as it sounds perfect for her hair! The brand describes this as an oil treatment that is light, smooths hair, build resiliency and boosts shine and colour.  As I’ve said before I’m not keen on using any smoothing or oil products on my hair just because my hairs so soft and straight as it is, I want to add volume and I don’t find these products do!

Birchbox Happy Days Photo Clip

This item links in with the theme of making new memories and remembering old ones by clipping a new or old favourite photo in Birchboxes very own ‘Happy Days’ photo clip. This is a cute little touch but I’m not sure if I will use it. They remind me of how I used to display pictures when I was younger, so I am a bit undecided!

Urban Fruit ‘Smashing Strawberry’

Last but not least, this months lifestyle item were these mini bags of  dried fruit. I got strawberry which I was pleased about because I love dried strawberry and you hardly ever see them in the supermarkets! I ate these just before writing this and they were so good, taste like sweets but are healthier!

When I saw the spoilers for this months box I wasn’t very excited but it turns out I quite liked this box!

If you got Birchbox’s September box, which was your favourite product you received?
