BIRCHBOX - September 2019: Sweet Simplicity

Hello! It's BIRCHBOX time! I cannot tell you how happy I am with this month's box. This September, it's time to strip it back and embrace a more focused approach to beauty, something that I can totally get behind after a crazy fun filled summer. With Birchbox this month its all about channelling our own version of Sweet Simplicity with five beauty goodies including a Benefit Lip and Cheek Tint in either Lovetint or Posietint, a purifying cleanser from Caudalie and a delicious Baija body cream. 

If you're new to Birchbox they are one of the main leaders in the beauty box subscription game. Each month you will receive five deluxe samples and travel sized samples and these will be with makeup, skin care, body care or hair care. It's a great way to discover new products that you wouldn't normally come across if it wasn't for this little beauty subscription. So without further ado let's take a closer look. 

Benefit Cosmetics. Lip and Cheek Stain in Posietint. RRP | £15.50

I have used a couple of stains before as they are pretty amazing and this one in Posietint is an absolutely gorgeous shade. You can definitely perk yourself up with the petal inspired flush, it is a gorgeous colour to add to my complexion with being too much. Nobody wants to look like a clown. The application is so easy with three brush strokes and a little blending and you're good to go. It shows up lovely on my fair skin tone and lasts all day without getting patchy, smudging, drying, or transferring on anything. I love using this on both my lips and cheeks, a great all rounder to add into your handbag for on the go. 

Caudalie. Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser. RRP | £16

The summer hasn’t been kind to my skin, the rise in temperatures has left my skin feeling oily and full of blemishes. We have had an amazing summer with the longer days, the late sunsets, beach days and exploring lots of adventures outside in the wild. But all this summer fun has really changed my skin and its complexion. So now that we are heading into autumn it’s time for a skincare shake up starting with a cleanser. Caudalie is one of those brands that I will always go back to when it comes to changing up my skincare routine, their cleansing oil is my favourite. This purifying gel cleanser banishes those blemishes, unclogs pores and helps balance my skin without leaving my skin feeling tight, dry or irritated. 

VQ. Rose Gammage Peeling Gel. RRP £15

There is nothing like a good scrub or peel to add into a skincare shakeup and this VQ Rose Gammage Peeling Gel is pretty great. As it exfoliates using botanical extracts to peel away dirt, brighten my complexion and tighten my pores. With such a complex array of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, Rose Extract boasts incredible benefits when used in skin care. It can help cleanse skin and prevent blemishes minimizes redness and soothe irritation making it ideal for all skin types. I have sensitive skin and was a little worried that my skin wouldn't like this peel, but honestly my skin loves it. You simply massage onto dry clean skin and then rinse of warm water to reveal a radiant glow. This is definitely something that I will buy again. 

Beaver Professional. Cherry Blossom Conditioner. RRP | £19.40

This luxurious conditioner both moisturises and detangles hair without adding extra weight making it perfect for those looking to thicken fine or limp hair. Nourishes and conditions the scalp and hair, strengthen hair root, balances scalp environment, gives a soft, shine refresh and weightless feeling.This conditioner smells AMAZING and it was so lovely to apply to my hair in the shower in the mornings and it leaves my hair feeling super so and very nourished. I would highly recommend this product that needs to add a little life to their hair. 

Baija. Rose and Lychee Body Cream. RRP | £15.90

Pretty packaging, natural ingredients, animal-friendly, and crafted in France. Baïja is a brand with a lot of love and oh so fun as you can see the packing is something that immediately caught my eye. You don't tend to see a lot of packaging that is out there like Baïja, but that is not the only great thing about this brand. Each and every one of their products take inspiration from exotic aromas for sweet scented formulas. This Rose Lychee body cream is an indulgent cream, you know those creams that you keep for special me time moments. It is super creamy and the rose and lychee scent is just a perfect combination, I also like the fact that the cream is light weight and doesn't sit on the skin. 

So a pretty impressive box right? Have you come across any of these products before? Would you try any of these products, if so which ones?
