After enjoying the June Powder Drawer, which I received when I first subscribed, I was really looking forward to seeing what September’s box would contain as I was really impressed with my first experience and I’ll say, now, that the September box did not disappoint.

Powder Beauty drawers are a little more expensive than your standard box at £15 (plus postage) (though less if you sub for a few months at once) but for that increased price you get a considerable amount more products than in other boxes and some really impressive brands and full sized items too.

I signed up to ‘Powder’ as I was given a money off code which made my first box half price and I was intrigued by a box that seemed to have an awful lot to offer. I’ve had many conversations with friends about how we’re over saturated with beauty boxes but what we don’t have a lot of is boxes that cost a little more and are a bit more premium (such as Glossybox in the US and Boxycharm over in the US too) – I know we do have some options for this type of box but we seem to have a lot more of the £10 boxes with tiny samples.

Powder Box, though, is a little more expensive (£15 plus postage or less if you sub for longer) but offers more full sized and some really premium brands along side some more affordable ones and that’s the sort of box I feel like I’ve been looking for. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for offers, as I said I got this box half price and they’ve recently been found on Groupon too.

I’m not entirely sure why but my first box, despite signing up in August, was the June box. I was told that because it’s my first box this is standard, I’m not sure if it’s because it was a half price box or if it’s just the way the system works. Thankfully the June box was pretty good so I don’t mind at all. I already have my September box and look forward to showing you that too. Anyway, on to the box!

The products came in a really large, drawer style, matte effect pink box. I keep a lot of old beauty boxes but I feel like these are some of the better quality that I’ve had and I definitely want to keep hold of them for storage ideas one we have our bedroom sorted out.

It’s Birchbox time again! It was nice to get the box nice and early, this month, as my box took a little while last month so I didn’t post it until rather late. That said it can be nice to get the box late one month and early the next as it feels like you get boxes really regularly, even if you are fooling yourself a little haha.

I liked this month’s box and if you do, too, you can sign up using my link which will get you £5 off your first box as well as getting me £5 to spend in the Birchbox shop:
