I’ve been in two minds about cancelling my Birchbox subscription, one month they just don’t impress me and then the next month they really win me back which is exactly what they’ve done this month!
|Monthly Subscription (£10 + P&P) – Bircbox|
This months box is titled Good Enough To Eat, with the massive hype around the benefits food product can give beauty wise at the moment Birchbox have also jumped on this. Taking inspiration from local food markets, the kitchen and our favourite food this months box is jammed packed with what is described as ‘delicious scents and foodie elements’. I really like the idea behind this months box, it feels like a sold theme and the products also work really well to reflect this.
First up we have the Campos de Ibiza Almendra Body Milk, this instantly takes me back to Ibiza a few years ago. This product is described as ‘spring in a tube’ and it definitely smells like it also with it’s almondy scent. I can wait to give this a try, as i’m not usually one for body milks but I think i’ll really get on with this. Next is the Lord & Berry Couture Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil, i’ve seen a lot about Lord & Berry in the beauty box world and I was eager to see what they are all about. I love myself a good eyeliner, especially a kohl eyeliner so i’m excited to see if this lives up to my trusty Rimmel one. Now onto nails and a Birchbox exclusive, it’s the Color Club Gala’s Gems Nail Polish. I love Color Club nail varnishes and this spring blue shade is perfect, especially as I don’t own a shade like this one.
This next product I thought was a chocolate bar or something, but it is actually TheBalm Cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream. First off, the packaging.. how frigging cute is it? Secondly, i’ve never tried a cream blusher so maybe this is the product to convert me? We shall see. This next product i’m quite intrigued by and that is the Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes. Now I love a good face wipe here and there especially when i’m having a lazy day, and as these are said to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise with it’s soothing organic cucumber i’m keen to see what these are like. Sticking with the theme of this months box, Birchbox also threw in this little extra the Propercorn Sweet Coconut & Vanilla. I tried my first Propercorn bag the other week, the sweet and salty one and loved it, so I can’t wait to try out this flavour!
I’m also really loving the new in-box cards, I really like that they all fold together and contain some pretty cool tips on this months product!
