Review: Birchbox October 2017

Hi Everyone

I received my ‘Feeling Good’ October 2017 Birchbox last week.    In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month Birchbox is working with the charity CoppaFeel this month – do love the design of the box this month.


Birchbox is a monthly subscription box which costs £12.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month and 3, 6 & 12 monthly subscriptions are also available.  Usually five personalised beauty treats are included each month.


This month every subscriber either received a ModelCo Treat subscribers were / are able to choose either a contour stick or a mascara, a Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash  and a Birchbox Exclusive  Anatomicals Grap Your Melons Shower Gel.   A product  / beauty information booklet, a code for £10 off a £50 spend (see below) and the following three products were also included in my box:


Anatomicals ‘boob tube grab your melons’ shower gel in Bomb Shell (50ml- FULL SIZE RRP £1.50)  – have received a number of Anatomicals products before in beauty boxes and although have used them, have not been that impressed that have went on to purchase any of them – however this shower gel does smell refreshing and a shower gel is always useful and handy size as well for travelling;

Nuxe 48hr Moisturising Cream for Normal Skin   (Sample Size – 15ml) – Full Size is 50ml RRP £26 – a number of Nuxe products in beauty boxes recently – this cream does feel lovely on skin and has a citrus fragrance, sinks into skin really quickly and skin does feel soft after using but need to use for a longer period of time to give a full review – my favourite product from the Nuxe range is the Nuxe Multi Huile Prodigieuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer;

 *SPOILER* November Sneak Peek – states that next month’s selection of beauty treats have been handpicked from the Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame – chosen by Vogue Beauty Editors past and present

Although this months box was not my favourite box and I was slightly disappointed, it still was good value for money.  However I have been thinking of unsubscribing as have not been overly excited about a number of recent boxes and have so many products to use up (the August box was the best for me recently), but because of next months theme and high expectations for the Christmas box I am going to wait till after the December box to make up my mind whether to unsubscribe or not.


If you are thinking of  subscribing to Birchbox UK – you can get £5 off your first box -(box is normally £10 +£2.95 shipping – you will get for £5 +£2.95 shipping) by clicking  link here and then copy and paste code at checkout to get your discount.    You can also get a free  rose gold Spectrum Collections brush when you order your October Birchbox  (*photo below),  just add the code MARBLE at checkout to get free gift.4d9df0899b944772b9233cf428a53013

Look forward to any comments you may have – if you have received this month’s box would love to know what you thought.

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you – enjoy the remainder of the weekend – more posts will be up later today /tomorrow.

Best Wishes Liz x

    It’s very disappointing I think and the sizes are small and I don’t like the charity aspect either. I am glad I didn’t sign up to this one however I enjoyed reading your post about next months box and hopefully will be much better and more exciting as this one is totally bland for me personally.

      I understand totally. It usually is still good value for money but recent products have not been that exciting for me personally and sometimes samples are very small. I am hoping next month’s will be good though. Take care and hope you have a good week. Liz x
