October Birchbox // #CoppaFeel

This months Birchbox has me really excited, with amazing contents and an ever more amazing campaign I am super impressed

This month is #CoppaFeel you can visit their website CoppaFeel to find out more information but basically is encouraging us to do more checks and be more aware of breast cancer , this months birch box includes things to look out for and changes.

They are always encouraging to get out this change of season slump and get motivated again , including a 14 day checklist to get you back and bouncing! 

Now onto what's inside the months box

Cattier // Pink clay face mask £4.25

This brand I had never heard of before now , I received two packet sized sample of the mask that is specifically for sensitive skin which is a bonus for me and my face seems to be having some sort of weird breakout and it just needs a little calming down! 

KMS California // Tame frizz taming creme £15.50

This is yet another saviour in this months box, since I was really young i've had ultra frizzy hair , not even curly , just straight and frizzy and I'm always trying to find new products to help and none have done that great a job yet so hopefully this will change!

Shaveworks // The cool fix £11

This little star is a gel / lotion that treats ingrown hairs, razor bumps , razor burn & redness , which is just brilliant , I always suffer from redness after I shave and I'm really hoping this makes some difference!

Pixi by Petra // Shea butter lip balm £9

This one just got me arghhh, Ive wanted to try this brand for ages and seen a lot about this recently , so when I seen this in the box I was super excited! I got the honey nectar tint and it leaves a gorgeous subtle nude colour and smells so nice! I was definitely be repurchasing.

Lollipops // Nail Lacquer £7

I'm forever painting my nails and hunting out news brands to try out, as soon as I seen the colour I was a very happy person , I had been wanting to paint my nails red for a week or so since it was coming into Autumn but I had done a big clear out of my nail polishes and didn't have any red so, This is a really deep red and perfect for this season!

This month also included the cutest pen and case which i'm probably going to use for make up 

I'm super super impressed with this months Birchbox and can't wait to try out these new brands!

Comment below on what you think of your October Birchbox!

Travel make up bag // October

I thought I would do a post on what I take in my travel make up bag i.e. travelling to work, unfortunately not on holiday!

I used to take crazy amounts and never use half of it so I got a new make up bag out of Primark and thought I would cut down what I was taking!

For brushes I picked up the Real Techniques mini must haves which you can find at superdrug for £7.99! They are perfect travel size and have the same great quality as full size Real Techniques , I carry two full size ones , the contour brush which I used for blending concealer and applying powder and the detailer brush for those awkward little creases and you can never go wrong with a pair of tweezers!

Like I said I used to take my whole face make up with me but I now I just take bare essentials , I usually take foundation even if I don't use it to sort my make up never know where I might end up and its just a safety net!

Concealer , eyebrow pencil and lipstick are my must haves!! I always end up rubbing off my eyebrows and I always need things concealed. Powder is usually another essential but this little Soap and Glory Concealer beauty has a power in it! saving space is my game!

I tend to always carry two lipsticks as I wear a nude to work but might be going out afterwards and like to use a more bold colour so I pop two in the morning.

What is the Hersheys lip balm I can hear you say, from Primark for £1 I wasn't expecting much but it is the tastiest lip balm Ive ever had and really moistening for the time it stays on my lips which doesn't tend to be long!

Thanks for reading, If you want to know where the rest of the products are from let me know!
