Unbox with me: MOST AWESOME BIRCHBOX EVER - Back to Basics October 2015

Hello my beauties. Happy one day to the weekend day :) It's Thursday and I'm having an awesome week so far. I'm totally under slept thanks to insomnia, which has crept it way back to my life, nevertheless feeling life is so good right now :) Thank you for over 12k views already, thank you for all your comments - it's so motivating knowing you guys like my content. As usual, if you feel like you want me to talk about something - give me a shout :)

This lovely little box arrived early Saturday morning. I wanted to blog about it straight away but damn those scheduling issues haha. I have to say it's pretty awesome box :) I'm loving it !!! We're going back to basics this month :)

Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner in Black (RPR £12) it's the first out of 2 full size products in this box. It dries  out quickly to the semi matte finish and it's extra black. After it dries you can try to smudge it but it won't budge. I have a feeling it'll be very long lasting - woohoo :) The only one minus is the actual applicator. As the name says, it's fat liner. I am yet to try it properly as I only watched it but I'm guessing making a perfect thin line will be pretty impossible with this one. Cat eye lines here I come :)

Seiche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat (RPR £9) is also full size and a god send :) If you follow me on Instagram, you know I had to finish my favourite top coat from Barry M (gel Sunset Curing one - whole range review here) as it went gloopy on me already :( I had similar top coat awaiting its turn from Revlon but after first application, I already know it won't be my favourite as my nails chipped pretty much straight away and it didn't speed up drying process that well. Enter Birchbox :) I heard so many great things about Seche Vite from my nail obsessed friend and she was right. It is amazing. I painted my nails 3 days ago. After applying top coat they dried within second and are still shiny and not chipped - hell yeah !!!

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water (20ml sample) is a great addition to the box. I heard many great things but I'm Garner girl through and through so now I'm finally able to compare the two :) Full size RPR £10.20.

Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste (14ml sample) helps to regenerate enamel by restoring mineral content. I'm always up to for trying a new toothpaste and this is a great travel bag/ overnight stay add on. Full size RPR £10.

Beaver Professional Hydro Nutritive Moisturising Shampoo (40ml sample) promises to repair damaged hair. It's great for dry hair by add on of Avocado Oil and Aloe Vera. It's not really natural as it does have SLS quite high on ingredient list but I will give it a go as my blonde hair always lack the moisture :) Full size RPR £11.50

Beaver Professional Hydro Nutritive Moisturising Conditioner (10ml sample) is a beauty bonus of the month. For my waist long hair I'll be lucky to get one application from it but again, great add on to a weekender bag. Full size RPR £12

That's it for October Back to Basics edition of Birchbox. I love the mixture of products and I'm very impressed by Seche Vite top coat and Eyeko eyeliner already. I'm glad to be seeing great samples perfect for those night you stay at your friends or a weekend away. I'm sure I will be using them all :)
I'd like to know what you think of this months box? Love it, hate it? Sound off in the comments below :)

Let's be friends:


  1. That looks like a pretty nice box! I find Seche Vite very thick so it's not my favorite fast drying top coat, but it does the job well.

    1. Mine doesn't seem to be thick yet.. Maybe it thickens with time? I had same problem with my previous top coat. It went gloopy after less than 6 months. Little annoying. I have to say Seche Vite does prolong the life of my mani by a day or two :)

  2. It definitely is a great box, I'd use every single product! When I had a subscription to Glossybox Italia, the boxes were pretty lame...

    1. I am so far impressed with Birchbox. Last months box was a little Meh for me but this month's rehabilitated itself :) just received my Glossybox - new post coming next week x
