This month Birchbox is Sweet Simplicity, they aim to strip back and embrace a more focused approach to beauty. All month long they will be helping you channel your own sweet simplicity with their box.
In my box I got
- Benefit Cosmetics – Posietint – Poppy Pink
- Caudalie – Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser
- VQ – Rose Gommage
- John Frieda – Frizz Ease Weightless Wonder
- Baija – Body Cream in Rose Lychee
All my items where samples which I was a little disappointed in as you usually get at least one full size item, there is a few items that I wont use but overall I’m ok with this months box.

Baija – Body Cream in Rose Lychee
Rose and lychee scented cream is meant to leave you feeling oh so smooth, softer and maybe a little sweeter. With its irresistible aroma of natural rosewater with pampering lychee , the nourishing formula sinks into your skin quickly that will hydrate your skin without leaving a greasy slimy film. You can use this cream daily for the super soft feeling. Did you know that this cream has 96% natural ingredients. This retails at around £15.90 for full size.
Benefit Cosmetics – Poisetint – Poppy Pink
This was quite a small sample size I have noticed over time that benefit are quite small samples sometimes just the one use and I don’t really get why they are so small because its not like you can really tell if you like it or not by just using it once. I got this in poppy pink this was the pick your own sample this month, was either the poppy pink or the red. I don’t use red lip stick or lip gloss as it doesn’t look right with the colour of my skin. You can use this on your lips or your cheeks and its meant to stay put all day. I haven’t used this yet so I’m not sure or this. You can use this on bare cheeks or buff over your foundation to get that boost of colour to your cheeks. This retails at around £15.50 for a full size product.
VQ – Rose gommage
This is a peeling gel says its better than the harsh face scrubs that are around at the moment. I’ve read about this a it seems great I am yet to try this but will update on my Instagram when I do. You can apply this to dry skin, massage on your skin till you see the residue lifiting then you just rise off with warm water. Leaves your face feeling refreshed and radiant. It exfoliates by using botanical extracts to peel away dead skin and dirt. It also reduces fine line with it’s rose extract. This retails at around £15 full size.
John Frieda – Frizz Ease Weightless Wonder
I’ve heard some good things about this, I haven’t tried it yet I keep forgetting but I have some mega frizzy hair sometimes so I think this is worth ago. The ultra light cream tames flyway’s, controls frizz and smooths whilst infusing giving your some great hydration with aloe water. You can use this on dry and wet hair, just use a pea size and work it through your hair to tame the fizziness and it should be transformed in a fabulous flash. I’m excited to try this and see if it works. I will update on my Instagram. This retails at around £6.99 full size.
Caudalie – Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser
I tired this out in the shower this morning and I’m pretty impressed with it. It unclogs pores, helps out with blemishes and balances your skin out without being left with the tight feeling you sometimes get from other face products. I hate that feeling but I didnt get that when I used this today. My face didnt feel dry and irritated either like usual and I didnt use face cream to make my face feel less tight. All you need to do is massage into wet skin to create a light foam before rising off. I think I’m converted to this. This retails at around £16 full size.
That’s Septembers box, not too bad like I said just a little shame that it was all sample sizes but I have asked Birchbox about this and they said that you wont get a full size every month, which is fine I just always have had at least one full size since I’ve been getting them.
