Birchbox September 2013 Unboxing & Review *Backstage To Real Life*

I know I know I am so freaking slow on these month and I am hating myself for it I dont know why its been taking me so long recently to actually write anf get posts up! i am sorry if you wanted to see these earlier believe me I really wanted to post them earlier but I think life an work has been a little crazy lately. 
Anyway enough of my excuses onto Septembers Birchbox!! it was another London fashion edition :)

A quick look at the products

Reverence de Bastien - Nail Polish in No.14. Price: £16.

You all know I am a nail polish junkie but I am just not wowed with this polish the color is okay but not exact desirable but after doing a little investigations this brand does a lot of reds and similar shades and not very many brights etc. I will admit I haven't tried it yet but I will insert a swatch of it if I can get a decent picture but for this price it better be life changing OPI isn't even this expensive and I find it hard to buy bottles of that unless I find it cheap somewhere.

Bioderma - Sebium H2O. Price: £9.99.

This has to be probably the most talked about product by the European Beauty Vloggers out there and I am so excited to finally have my hands on it!! This little fella is meant to be the holy grail of all makeup removers and I cant wait to see how it does up again waterproof mascara! I have heard such amazing things out this and that the L'Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution are very similar so we will have to see :)

ModelCo. - Party Proof Matt Lipstick in Kitty. Price: £15.50 for a set of 3.

I am seriously obsessed with lipsticks at the moment so was pretty excited to hear a lip product would be in this months box and Ill be honest when I saw the color I received I wasn't jumping for joy over it. I was hoping for a bright read or something but It has grown on me so much!! super creamy and soft consistency and glides straight on and its one of those colors that is your lip color but better. I was advised to pair it with a lip gloss over the top to make it more me and I ended up using and sparkly nude from Revlon it looked so good together!!

Aromatherapy Associates - Revive Body Gel. Price: £31.

This is probably one of the products I really don't care about, I have so many body washes/gels I really dont need anymore than I already buy haha. It says it is meant to maintain a healthy circulation after a busy day and even your body's skin tone, it sounds like an interesting product if it didn't smell so strong I probably would have a little more excitement about it.

Molton Brown - Ylang-Ylang Nourishing Body Lotion. Price: £18.

Last month we received the body wash/gel in this and I must say I prefer the smell of the lotion to that its not to crazy strong or over powering I will def get around to using this at some point! I also LOVE the bottle for some reason.


Green & Black's - White Chocolate. Price £2.29

This was a cute little extra to have in this months box I'm not usually a big Green & Black's chocolate fan only because I don't like any form of dark chocolate but this was a tasty little treat :)
