With LFW kicking off today, Birchbox's latest offerings include everything a girl needs to stay gorgeous as she runs in high heels from show to show- and way into the autumn even if you're not lucky enough to be on the FROW. I'm not able to make it to Fashion Week, but I do have a whirlwind couple of weeks coming up myself - I'm super busy at work planning campaigns and putting on two autumn events, the Cosmo Blog Awards are looming, it's Matt's birthday, we have visits from both our families and we have loads of gigs coming up! Phew!
So what's in the box?
Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel smells incredible, a heady mix of rosemary and grapefruit which fills the bathroom with it's refreshing aroma. It claims to even out skin tone and maintain healthy circulation after a hectic day.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water for normal/dry/sensitive skin is a backstage must have at LFW, and I can see it becoming a must have for my evening skincare routine too. It lifts grime and make up out of the skin effortlessly and requires minimal effort whilst gently caring for the skin. Perfect for busy beauty babes.
With the changing of the seasons comes the effect of the cold and windy weather on your skin. This mini Molton Brown Nourishing Body Lotion has a gorgeous ylang-ylang fragrance and keeps dry skin at bay. This sample size is perfect for popping in your bag for a moisture top up throughout the day.
Reverence de Bastien nail polish in shade No 14 is a deep red wine colour, the classic autumnal, 'go with everything' shade. It's super shiny and looks really chic and polished, and matches my new tartan obsession perfectly.
ModelCo's Party Proof lipsticks do what they say on the tin, keeping colour in tact for hours on end. My box contained the shade 'Kitty', a dark peachy shade perfect for day time. It's really silky and moisturising to protect against chapped lips, and smells of strawberries!
As a little extra, Birchbox threw in a tasty treat of Green & Blacks white chocolate - I will be treating myself to this when I've completed my to-do list!
All of the products in this month's Birchbox can be purchased in the Birchbox online shop, and I think I'll be treating my skin to a full size bottle of Bioderma for A/W! (I know I'm late to the micellar water party!)
What are your favourite products for keeping pretty on a busy, September day?
