Birchbox October | Review

Hi Darlings! 
I hope you are all well! I have been getting Birchbox now on and off for nearly 3 years now and I have had a love hate relationship with the subscription box for  a while now. When I first got the boxes I was always excited to see what I would be getting every month but now its been so typical that its not been exciting at all and to be honest with you all I found this months box such a waste of money and I will explain why below. 

I feel like more effort goes into the box design rather than whats in the actual box itself, I can't deny this months box and every other months boxes have been beautiful but it's such a big let down to be greeted with so many bloody samples and not just any samples, stuff you have tried before!
Birchbox October Review
Inside this months box 

Model Co Contour Stick || RRP £8 SAMPLE 👀
I got this a few months back and I can't say I loved it to be honest, I prefer my other contour products so I was a lil disappointed to get it again. I love the scent of this product though its very nice. Its easy to apply and gives an effortless contour.

Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash || RRP £16 SAMPLE 👀
The size of this is kind of a let down for sure but I am sure it will come in handy whenever I go travelling or something like that. This is 100% natural and is supposed to remove makeup gently while moisturising at the same time.

Anatomicals Birchbox Exclusive Grab Your Melons Shower Gel || RRP £1.50 FULL SIZE 👅
Defiantly my favourite product of the box! I am looking forward to giving this a whirl.

R + Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste || RRP £22 SAMPLE 😒
The size of this product is super tiny and I don't feel like I can try it long enough to give it a fair review which is unfortunate. You apply this by rubbing a small amount between the fingers and massaging through hair focusing on roots.

Whish Three Wishes Body Butter Almond || £16.70 SAMPLE 😞
I love the smell of this product which smells like aloe, shea and raspberry butter. This is to help keep skin feeling nourished and also to protect the skin.

As much as I love a good sample I simply find the amount 'Birchbox' are sending out is unacceptable to me and I know that a lot of people don't mind that but for me personally I find it such a waste of money at £10 plus £2.95 for P&P is a little too steep for samples, especially when most of them will end up stuck in the bottom of my skincare drawer.

Sorry Birchbox I just had to cancel. I am on the lookout for a better beauty box, if you have any suggestions comment below or message me x
