After about 7 months subscribed to GlossyBox I decided it was about time I unsubscribed as the boxes weren’t really impressing me all that much anymore and I just fancied a change. After the raving reviews of the last few Birchbox’s I thought i’d see what all the fuss was about and ordered myself a September box.
|Birchbox Subscription (£10 & P+P) – Birchbox|
Birchbox (formerly known as Joliebox) has pretty much the same concept as most beauty boxes out there, a beauty box containing 4-5 beauty/lifestyle samples a month somewhat tailored to you, but each beauty box brand is different in terms of performance, brands, design etc. Anyway, onto the products I received in my box this month.
The first product is this Reverence de Bastien Nail Polish, in this lovely baby pink shade. I actually don’t own a shade like this one and I can see myself wearing this when I want a minimal nude shade to my nails. Next up is the Molten Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Lotion, which smells quite nice. I’m not one to usually use a body lotion, but with the colder months on their way I can see this could come in handy and I love Molten Brown it adds a nice feel of luxury whenever I use one of their products. The next product is a ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in the shade ‘Kitty’ from their Naturals Trio. This shade is the perfect shade for me as it will add a nice wash of colour that isn’t too bold and can be worn for subtle day look. I really like the sound of this formula as it’s said to be hydrating whilst also being semi matte.. interesting.
This next product is probably the most exciting product in the box and yes i’m talking about the Bioderma Sensibio H20, which i’ve been dying to try and now I can finally give this whirl without breaking the bank. I’ll be reporting back on this very soon! The last product is from a brand i’ve never heard, but I smelt this as soon as opened this months box. The product in question is the Aromatherapy Associates Revive Body Gel, which is said to give you a burst of energy and to make you feel more awake. I’m interested to see how this works as I find showers make me more sleepier in the morning. I also received a yummy white chocolate bar, which I happily devoured when I opened the box (hence why it’s not photographed!).
All in all i’m so impressed with my first Birchbox, these products are nothing like ones I already own nor ones i’ve received in any previous beauty boxes and I can’t wait to see what’s in next months box!
