This post has been in the pipeline for weeks but for some reason or other I just hadn't got around to it however I got an email this morning saying that my September Birchbox had been dispatched and I thought I'd better get a wriggle on and share the delights of August's Birchbox before it was officially too late. 

Last month's Birchbox was all about Holidays, and whilst it doesn't look like I'll be heading off on my Hollybobs anytime soon. I did really appreciate the contents. So without further ado let's finally do this! 

Chella Highlighter Pencil

I actually clapped when I saw this. I have been wanting a highlighting pencil for a while and sometimes it's like the good people at Birchbox can actually read my mind, being in pencil form it is ridiculously easy to apply. with a really nice formula that is easy to blend. I'm a bit wary when it comes to highlighter but this is rather fabulous.

Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF35 CC Cream

There were 2 of the cutest and tiniest sample bottles I have ever seen. There are so adorable. Now as far as Supergoop goes I had genuinely no clue about this brand. Then after some googling I discovered that Supergoop, founded in 2006, specialises in lightweight, easy to wear sun screen and skin protection products. Now being a sensitive, fair skinned lassie sun screen is ridiculously important - for everyone not just me-. I haven't actually tried it yet, what with the current stream of drizzle not exactly lending itself to sun cream, but I will keep you posted. 



Number 4 Super Comb & Protect Leave in Conditioner

My hair is... difficult to say the least. At the best of times it does tend to err on the frizzy side of things, but in the summer my hair goes from difficult to clinically insane. The sun dries it out and the humidity makes it 10 times it's original size - and it's pretty big anyway, but this leave-in conditioner has been a total lifesaver. It has stopped the sun from drying out the ends of my hair and manages to exert some level of control over my wild and tangled mane. In love. 


Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil

Nude is a brand, established in 2007, that a specialises in natural, high perfomance skin care. Again it was not a brand that I had come across before. I have always had a bit of a phobia of serums. In the past I have been afraid to use serums due to the fact that I have combination skin that likes to break out. But this is lovely, it feels so nice against the skin and is really kind to the skin. I was so impressed.

Vasanti Brightenup! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

I had never ever heard of Vasanti before but anything that promises a renewed and refreshed complexion is okay in my book. After giving it a whirl I can say in total honesty that it is amazing. It made my skin feel incredible and so clean. I will definitely be repurchasing. 


So that was August's Birchbox, unfortunately it's no longer available BUT September's is and it looks awesome. If you don't already subscribe (and strongly I recommend you do!) you can do so here. I'm sorry that this was so late August was sso hectic that I am still wrapping up all the loose ends. I promise that my August Favourites will be going up before the end of the week/weekend. Until then you can read about previous Birchboxes here and here and you can check me out on twitter, facebook, Bloglovin, instagram & pinterest
