The September Birchbox arrived at my door not long ago. It’s always fun to get them and I’ll be sad when the 6 months is up and I have to decide whether to stay with Glossybox or move to Birch. Maybe I can alternate! Maybe I can be wild and try something totally new. Maybe maybe maybe. Any suggestions?

This months Birchbox was called Happy Days and seemed to revolve around memories you’ve made over the summer. Here’s what I got.

September Birchbox 2014

Agave Healing Oil Treatment // £16

This is a oil treatment you put on your hair when it’s damp to make hair smooth and shiny. I have it on as I type this post!

Benefit It’s potent! Eye Cream // £25.50

I hope this works. My eyes look dead at the moment due to working 10 days straight. I’m feeling very sorry for myself and I’m exhausted. Bright me up, please.

This eye cream is said to banish dark circles, smooth fine lines and protect against free radicals.

It helped a bit, but I think I’ve had much cheaper eye creams that have worked just as well!

Skin & co. Sicilian Light Serum // £29

This serum sounds like a dream and also hope it works but also I also hope it doesn’t in case I end up buying it. £29 is a lot of quids to spend.

It evens complexion, brightens, softens and tightens skin. Basically all the things I need.

Modelco Power Lash Mascara // £24

This mascara has a zigzag brush and it’s perfect for capturing even the tiny lashes to maximum impact!

Beauty Blender + Blendercleanser Solid // £26

This is an egg shaped blender to give a flawless makeup base. I’m not sure how much use I’ll get out of this, but it’s worth a squirt, I guess.

The cleanser is easy to use, just wet your brush/blender, stoke it across the soap, leather, rinse and then let it air dry. It looks fun, doesn’t it? I enjoy fun.

Urban Fruit Perfect Pineapple // £13.50 for 6

I’m sometimes allergic to pineapple and I just ate the whole bag. If you never hear from me again, you’ll know why.

It has no sugar or shit added to it, at least. Just baked pineapple and a bit of flour to stop it being sticky.

Birch Box Happy Days Photo Clip

Woo! A Henry. I call these clips a Henry. I don’t know why, but I have ever since I was 14 or so when I somehow had one (think I stole it from a science class) and it became my lucky charm. It came with me through all my GSCE’s, A levels, University exams and I still have it now. I think this item caused me much more nostalgia than Birchbox intended!

Hello, Henry!

  1. What a great looking box! I’m especially intrigued by that oil stuff for your hair. Did it work? I am hesitant to buy it just in case my hair looks all greasy and gross afterwards. I could probably use some of that potent eye stuff too 🙂

  2. I was less than impressed with this box until I saw the Beauty Blender, those little babies are MARVELOUS for blending out foundation and concealer if you dampen them first. I bet you’ll really like it!

    Also your “Henry” cracked me up, it looks like a baby alligator mouth. (Please tell me I’m not alone in thinking this…please.)

  3. That’s it, I’m signing up for a Birch Box! I can’t believe they gave you guys a beauty blender, I’ve wanted one for years >.<

    I've never tried glossy box but It's going to be hard to choose.

  4. Ooooh what a great box! I got a scrub instead of the serum but otherwise I am really impressed. This is my first box and I really like the samples as I feel like I can actually get through them and use them rather then collecting lots of things!

  5. The eye cream you will have to share if it works I have horrendous black circles. The beauty blender is similar to the techniques one I have. This is a great box this time and has some wonderful products Lucy x
