"AIR" October Birchbox: Unboxing and Review 🌫

This month's Birchbox theme was "What's Your Sign?" and there were 4 different box designs based on your birth sign. I actually really liked the Fire box design!

  • Earth: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn 
  • Air: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius 
  • Fire: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius 
  • Water: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces 

I'm not going to lie. This month didn't go quite according to plan. I received my box 4 days late and then the box was damaged and indented while when I opened it, one of the products was opened and leaked everywhere ruining all the products and of course the keepsake box. I contacted them and after a long almost 2 week wait period, the box finally arrived with useable goods!

OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Collagen Booster - £47.00

Love the product and love the smell but defintely not worth the price. It's makes my skin feel tighter and smoother but I probably wouldn't get much use out of it as I already have my evening routine worked out. 

Lord & Berry 20100 Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick (Intimacy) - £12.00

Without a doubt, my favourite item this month is this lipstick. It's easy to apply, subtle yet pigmented, long lasting and smudge-resistance. It also has no taste nor smell so it's perfect!
Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Magic Touch Body Cream - £19.50

This is perfect for after a long shower. It's not thick so it feel very much lightweight which I love and it has a fresh, floral scent.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray - £39

When I first saw this I thought I wouldn't use it because I don't use dry shampoo but I tried it on my flatmates hair and oh my gosh! It is defintely a texturising spray and perfect for those up-hairstyles on clean hair because it gives it that extra grit it needs to hold styles. I probably won't ever purchase this unless I'm specifically going to a fancy occasion because it is very expensive but I do think it is pretty incredible and the formula is clear so it disappears instantly.
Number 4 Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil - £18.40

I feel like I've been given so many different hair oils from Birchbox since I started my subscription and honestly, I'm kind of over them. I rarely use them because I don't think it makes all that much difference - if any - and at the end of the day, it adds extra oil when I'm trying to prolong my hair between washes.

In addition to these five items, they included a 6th bonux item in the form of a full size Eyebrow Brush for £1.99. It works perfectly well and sturdily made me nothing special as it is the same as all the others I have worn.

Overall, if it wasn't for the damage and late delivery, I would really like this box! I don't like the fact that it is another drawer box and this time they gave us no warning but I like the design, which even glows a green-tinge in the dark. If it wasn't for the lipstick I would be disappointed but the lipstick defintely makes it worth it!
