September Birchbox

September 2016

September's Birchbox has made me very happy. I was so pleased with every product and even happier to find out that it contained one of my favourite products of all time... The Laura Mercier Primer! The box was so pretty too and I am loving the new draw style box! 

Laura Mercier Primer

So the main reason I was so pleased with this box is the mini version of the Laura Mercier Primer that I now have! It is such a lovely primer and is water based so doesn't make your foundation cake or stick. I love it! I already have this product but actually can't get enough of it so was overjoyed to find this little sample. 

Batiste Styling Volume Spray 

So we have all used the batiste dry shampoo to give a little lift to a back comb. It seems they have figured out that this is what we are using it for and created a better version to help with the lift and volume. So I used this product when I really should have washed my hair that morning but decide on a few extra minutes in bed. The mistake I made the first time I used this was using too much! It really doesn't take much to create a texture and volume in your hair and still works as a dry shampoo at the same time! Great!! 

Polar La Veritable Creme De Laponie

Is it too early to suggest this as a great stocking filler? Who doesn't love a hand cream? It smells great and feels like velvet

Nue Prodigieux Huile De Douche

Iv taken to using my birchbox items at the gym mainly due to the miniature sizes of them and it seems that my usual shower routine after a workout has changed from using soap that is usually dispensed off the side of the wall to bathing in luxury. It seems that all of the non-birchbox users are missing out here. This shower gel makes me feel a million bucks after a good swim or workout! Instead of using dry soap I'm now coming out of the gym glowing and fresh. 

Model Co Highlight Wheel

So this was the full size surprise this month. I have taken to using these highlight wheels when I want a more natural makeup look. I have been using the bronze colour when out in the sun and without foundation and the cream lighter colours indoors when I need a little extra glow at 5.30am in the morning to brighten me up.
