So for those who didn’t see my recent post, I recently subscribed to Birch Box, and have just torn open my first delivery. Well well well. Impressed does not even begin to cover it. I am over the moon with what they’ve sent! As promised, here are my thoughts….
Firstly, the packaging is just to die for. A cute little box, with a Birch Box branded drawstring bag inside. I am so excited to be getting this every month! Perfect for my inner beauty product obsession!
The first thing I clapped eyes on in this month’s box was the Laura Gellar Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner, with a little brush built into the lid. I’ve needed a new gel liner for a while but I don’t wear it all the time, so haven’t got round to selecting one. This is the perfect size to carry around, and I wore it today and found it really durable and long lasting.
This was the Noble Isle Shower Gel, and this cute little bottle smells absolutely gorgeous. Just one sniff and you feel as though you’re transported off to the most luxurious spa in the world. Its really lovely on the skin, too. I would definitely purchase the full bottle, but its quite pricey, so only as a treat!
The nail colour I am wearing in that photo is also from this month’s box. Its the Color Club polish in Reign in Spain, which is the fluorescent coral colour shown in the picture below. This colour was developed exclusively for Birch Box, and while I first thought it was a bit too bright, I actually have fallen in love with it! It looks great against black and white outfits, and is really striking. I have had lots of compliments already. You can purchase this colour exclusively on the Birch Box site here.
The next product I grabbed from the box was this tiny little bottle of COOLA Cucumber SPF Face Protect. I haven’t yet had a chance to try it as the sun has not graced us yet, but this weekend is set to be a scorcher on the South coast, so it will definitely get tested! It smells like holiday in a bottle, though! It’l be great to carry around in my handbag for when I feel my nose catching the sun a bit too much!
Yes thats right. This month I got five goodies in my box. Its usually four or five, and this time around I was lucky with the latter. Its the Beauty Protector Detangling Leave In Conditioner. I am yet to test this one yet as I haven’t washed my hair since it arrived, but as soon as I do I will post a review.
You can go onto your Birch Box account and review all the products you receive in your box, and you earn points to spend on the site for doing so, so its great to let others know what you think of your things.
