Unboxing BirchBox UK September 2014 Happy Days theme @iamcherrylemon

Happy Saturday everyone!

While I’m doing my normal clock watching at work yesterday, my friendly postie arrived and brightened my day with my Sept BirchBox!

Having 2 of my friends unsubscribing from BirchBox after last month’s box… I was hoping this month’s box will contain some super cool items to entice them back!

BirchBox UK September 2014 “Happy Days” theme @iamcherrylemon

This month’s theme is Happy Days, things to remind you of the old good days. Birchbox even invited subscribers to tweet their “happy memories” photos, some are printed in the product card. Lovely way to get subscribers to be involved.
Birchbox also has teamed up with Photobox to include some discount codes for subscribers. Some lucky boxes might contain the legendary beautyblender. I’ve already got 1 from the June box 🙂
The actual box this month has also gotten a makeover, and can be converted into a lovely bright photo frame (instructions is printed on the editor note). It’s very “Blue Peter”! (Google if you haven’t heard of blue Peter hehe most British kids grew up watching it! )

Ok let’s dive in,  shall we?

Agave Healing Oil Treatment
This is a treatment oil for hair. Instruction states that I should use a 5p (its like a dime for US currency) sized amount. ..hmmm probably 10p (US quarter coin) I think!
I haven’t heard of this brand before but I’ve been using hair oil for years now. Moroccan oil is my usual brand. Let’s test this out!

Benefit It’s Potent!  Eye Cream
This is the item that is included in every September BirchBox. I don’t think this needs much introduction? This is one of Benefits bestselling skincare product. I’ve still got my sample from my August box. Am I picky/unreasonable? but I think if they planned to include this in all BirchBox for Sept then this product shouldn’t be included in last month’s box.

Korres Citrus Shower Gel
The brand is OK. I am not that excited because I’ve finished a mini bottle of this gel not that long ago. Product is ok 🙂

Model Co Power Lash Mascara
During August,  subscribers were sent an email to pick one if the items in their Sept box. I’ve picked mascara and that is what’s in the box 🙂 can’t have too many mascaras, right?

Lifestyle extras
Urban Fruit – Magnificent Mango
I buy dried fruits from this brand regularly, it serves as a lovely snack as it’s kinda trick you into thinking you’ve eaten 1 of your 5 a day 🙂 I’ve shared this with my work colleagues within 5 mins of opening this box (so this snack is not in the picture!)

BirchBox Happy Days photo clip – in bright pink!  One of my favourite colours 😀
That’s all folks!

Birch Box UK August 2014 ~ unboxing!

Birchbox UK August 2014 UNBOXING @iamcherrylemon

Birchbox UK August 2014 UNBOXING @iamcherrylemon

Woohoo, another Birch box has arrived few days ago, and couple of days after all my colleagues have received theirs :~P

ANYWAY! Here’s the items I have got in the box 🙂

  • NUMBER 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect 30ml ~ my hair needs heat protection spray! I have been using Guardian Angel Heat protection spray for a long while now. It is nice to check out another brand.
  • Chella Highlighted pencil 1.4g ~ I haven’t swatched this yet, but I am liking the idea of a highlighter in pencil form! If the shade is good, it will gain a permanent place in my daily makeup bag!
  • Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil 5ml ~ The Nude treatment oil is what I looked forward to testing the most, I have been on a serum/oil craze for the longest of time and I simply adore facial oils. I can’t wait to check it out, although there is only 5ml of the product! hhaha
  • Vasanti BrightenUp Enzymatic face rejuvenator 20g ~ I’m guessing this is a exfoliator 😛 Good but I am a little scared of enzyme based exfoliators (had bad experience with another brand), patch test is definitely on the cards for this one!
  • SuperGoop! Daily Correct DPF35 CC cream 2 * 3ml ~ TRIED! The shade is a little light for my skin. This CC cream feels heavier than the normal CC creams I have tried before. It dries matte on my skin and it did last very well! Thumbs up, but wished I have the right shade to try :I
  • The Proposal by Tasmina Perry – Ah, I am on my tablet all the time, so not sure I will get to read 1 chapter of a book. SORRY!

All in all, I much prefer this month’s box over the July box, apart from the novel sampler I can see myself using up all the sample products from this box 🙂

22.08.2014 update: BirchBox just released a promo code for free sample duo if you choose to sign up from this month. Enter the code BBXDUO 🙂

Till next time! Take care and thank you for reading 🙂

Unboxing Birchbox UK!! ~ July 2014 :D

2014 July Birch Box UK @iamcherrylemon

2014 July Birch Box UK @iamcherrylemon

My July BirchBox has arrived! Woohoo!

Okie… this must sounds ridiculous to you. . But I was really looking forward to my July BirchBox when I receive my June box! Total withdrawn symptoms!
Good thing is that both my friends who signed up at the same time as me, were as desperate to get theirs too 😛 I’m not alone! Yay! Wahaha joke aside. I just want to share with you what I got in my July box. If you’re still waiting for yours and do not want a spoiler then please just click to read another of my posts ;P hehehe

Thank you and here they are!

Whish Three whishes lavender body butter – Lavender! Another of my favourite scents! I even keep sachets of lavender in my wardrobe. As well as making my clothes smell better, it acts as natural insect repellent. Obviously this body cream will not be an insect repellent!

Balance me Wonder eye cream – I haven’t tried their eye cream before. I wonder if this really is a wonder eye cream as I’m always looking for eye cream that would work with me.

LAQA & Co Sheer lip lube pencil in Bees Knees – ok this colour scares me. I look pretty poorly if I slather it on 😦 but it looks OK as a tint. It smells so good and kinda minty!

Benefit The POREfessional primer – I believe everyone knows what this is about? It has been one of my favourite primer for a long time. Read my post here!

Gilchrist & Soames English Spa sea kelp extract mineral bath – mineral bath. ..hmm.. nice. But I like my showers better 😛

Plus a sachet of The Chia Shot – Ok this looks way too healthy for me. I was eyeing up Vitacoco drink my friend received. .. wishing that was mine instead!

Okie. This month I would like to try the lip lube pencil (use sheer layers! ), body butter and eye cream! Great timing as my current eye serum is just running out :o)

What’s in your box this month? 😀
