This month Birchbox has gone the extra mile and added something very special in the October box. They have joined forces with the first breast cancer charity in the UK ‘Coppafeel‘ to spread awareness and included in every single box a ‘Shower Hijack Sticker’ to know exactly what signs to look and feel for when checking your boobs in the shower.
This month theme is ‘Feeling Good’ and the items received are aimed to help you do that in October! So let’s talk about the 5 beauty items I received:
This product is one of the Birchbox exclusive and it’s something I would have never thought existed, but here it is and I’m glad I got something that will encourage me to check my lovely ladies. Thanks Birchbox if you are reading this!
Receiving the Shower Hijack Sticker and this boob tube was such a nice surprise because, if I’m being honest – I normally wouldn’t check my boobs. Having easy access to information about how to check and feel my boobs will help with my own awareness and ultimately, will help preventing any detected abnormality from developing.
Focusing on the product, this shower gel smells SO GOOD and while you are lathering up your little mountains, you can take a few minutes to feel and check. You can read and write down the steps if you are interested 🙂
I’m going to admit that I do not own any contouring kit because I like to use my bronzer and contour with it. I am learning a lot about make up but it doesn’t mean I have to follow every single rule. I like to put make up on as I feel more comfortable with.
However, I am happy I received this contour stick because I finally have one that doesn’t occupy much space in my make up bag. This contour stick has a nice creamy formula that makes it easy to spread on your skin with your fingers tip. I am liking it and have the feeling that it will last long.
These are so cute and perfect for colour correcting, but I am using them at the moment to apply concealer under my eyes and to cover any unwanted spot or dark marks. You can use them wet or dry and they are super soft on the skin.
I’ve heard so many good things about this brand so I couldn’t be happier when I saw these little ones in my October box.
I am totally hooked with this brand! Balance me products are made almost with 100% natural ingredients and are so gentle to the skin. I really cannot say anything negative about this brand because it works perfectly with my skin and they are against animal testing [insert hearts here].
This Pure Skin Face Wash purifies your skin and leaves it feeling soft and hydrated. It helps removing the make up too but I really like to wake up and wash my face with it to prep my skin for the day. I TOTALLY recommend this and all their products.
I’ve seen this product worked wonderfully on people that have enlarged pores and I have to admit, it really covers them. However, my pores tend to be closed most of the time and I don’t notice any difference when I apply it to my skin so I’m just not using it.
This POREfessional Pearl Primer is oil-free and it has a lovely lightweight texture that you barely feel once on the skin. If you are looking for something to cover your pores, definitely get this! Otherwise, don’t bother 😉
