Birchbox Birchday! | September 2015

Birchbox are officially celebrating their birthday this month - Happy 5 years Birchbox!
To celebrate Birchbox wanted to treat us to some special Birchday goodies.
This month we got to choose between 2 designs for our boxes, I picked the Up, Up, and Away! box which is a gorgeous pastel watercolour type birthday box and it's beautiful.
The other box was the Make a Wish Box which is just as stunning and it was hard to pick from the two.

Inside this month's box you get 6 beauty goodies, 4 of which are samples and 2 full sized products.
The first thing I spotted, and because I am a huge lover of Tangle Teezers was The Birchbrush, this works just like a Tangle Teezer, great at getting rid of knots and tangles plus it's cheaper too! 
The other full sized product that I received was the Laqa & Co Cheeky Lip Pencil in Cray Cray, this lip pencil is a beautiful coral peach shade and is super pigmented, one swipe over the lips and you're good to go. 

Onto the samples, I received the John Masters Organics Citrus Neroil Detangler - I normally have quite knotty hair when I get out the shower, so anything that will help that is more than welcome! I have already tried this stuff out and it works wonders, It works as a deep conditioner and leaves my hair feeling so smooth and soft afterwards, it also does help with the knots and tangles and leaves your hair smelling really citrusy which I love! 
The next sample I received was the Beauty Protector Beauty Wash, I really love the scent of this product which smells fruity and floral - however the full size of this retails at £8 which I think is a tad pricey for a body wash. 
I also received the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant - This product is meant to help clear, calm and give you oil-free skin in no time! Again, I do like this product but I don't see anything amazing about it just yet, it's been a few days of using this and I don't see much of a change. This is also quite a pricey product, the full sized being £23.50, I'm not sure whether I'd pay that much for this however it may work wonders for other people. 
Lastly is something I think a lot of people got quite excited about and that's the Benefit The POREfessional: License To Blot - This is said to help battle against shiny T-zones with it's unique oil-blotting stick. I get quite oily on my forehead and chin so I applied this in those area's and it worked wonders. Helped with the oiliness and shininess and helps mattify - love this product!
