October's Birchbox - 'Work It!'

By Aworldfullofprettiness
Can I just start by saying I was majorly impressed with this box. I don't know if it was the whole pink theme, or the cute fabric zip bag which they don't usually do, or even the cute pen, whatever it was, it has scored top marks in my book.
This month's theme is highlighting breast cancer awareness, and has joined up with CoppaFeel which emphasizes how important it is to 'coppa feel' of your breasts, checking for any abnormalities. I don't think us girlies check as much as we should.. so before I go on any further.. coppa feel please!
October's Birchbox - 'Work It!'
Firstly.. the cute fabric canvas style zip bag. Honestly - why can't all months be like this, and replace those pesky drawstring bags that really struggle to find a use for! I actually think I'm gonna start using this to throw in my handbag for work as I'm always carrying make-up items around with me, but never seem to have a suitable size cosmetics bag. I'm counting this as a second lifestyle item in this months box, even though it's not listed down as one!
Lets take a closer look...
October's Birchbox - 'Work It!'
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm - 'Ripe Raspberry' (Full Size Product) - £8
I'm a daily user of lip balm because (for some unknown reason) I get really sore lips if I have nothing on them (all year round). If I have no lip balm on, I have to put lipstick on, simply to ease my lips. This one smells delish, the packaging is cute and it is apparently a buildable colour, which is always handy.
Cindy Crawford Glowing Serum (Full size Product £30.95)
This is a radiance enhancing anti - aging serum that is applied before moisturizer. This is a fairly expensive serum so I'm intrigued of the results, although being in my late twenties, I probably wont see a benefit from the anti-ageing factor!
Balance Me Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm (Full Size - £20)
This is a natural nourishing cleanser with exfoliating oatmeal powder.. Intriguing! I can't wait to try this tonight! I really want to find a good daily facial cleanser that becomes a cult product in my routine for many years..
October's Birchbox - 'Work It!'
KMS Hair Play Dry Wax (Full size - £15)
A spray that adds second day texture to the hair with a matte finish. It smells good but I'm not massive on hair products so I may pass this onto my boyfriend (before giving it a bash myself, of course!).
The Cool Fix Gel Lotion (Full size - £11)
This lotions targets ingrown hairs, razor bumps/burns and redness. It smells nice and fresh.. lets see if it works!
Lifestyle Choice - Birchbox Lipstick Pen (£2.50)
I've had one lipstick pen before in red and it was encrusted with red diamantes, and I loved it! Unfortunately I lost it so this has just replaced that hole! I love stationary, and there's nothing cuter than writing with pink pens... lipstick ones at that!
I'm going to get full use out of pretty much all of these products (except the hair wax spray). Really impressed.. and Birchbox, if you're reading.... please replace those drawstring bags with these!
