***This Blog Post Contains August 2017 Birchbox Spoilers***
I signed up to the Birchbox subscription service since June 2017 and I haven’t been disappointed once.
Birchbox is a monthly beauty sampler subscription box, and it generally includes 5 different beauty samples every month. The great thing about Birchbox is that it allows you to fill out a personal beauty profile when you sign up, so you can pick items you would prefer to get in your boxes. I pay £13 a month and I think that’s not too bad, as I was signed up to My Little Box before this one, and they were a similar price.
This is a review of the new Birchbox Oliver Bonas Birchbox, which is now available in the Birchbox Shop. Inside my box I got an information card with all the information on each item and the price for the full-sized products.
Here’re the contents of my September Birchbox and I love them!
I got a full-sized Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 eyeshadow which can be used on the cheekbones, brow bone and the tip of your nose for that glowy look. And I am so loving the glowy look right now!
I then got the most divine smelling hair conditioning spray by Beauty Protector. And I’ll admit, at first, I thought that I was disappointed because I recently bought a leave-in hair conditioner from TK Maxx, but I did try it out and the feeling of the spray changed my mind instantly. It is non-greasy, smells like sweets and it says that it protects your hair from UV rays, detangles your hair and keeps it looking shiny. I’m reinvesting in this product when I finish.
The next three products were okay but I am not majorly excited about. I got the Polaar IcyMagic Instant Eye Contour Energiser and I’ve had this in My Little Box earlier this year. However, it reminded me that my eye area does need a little TLC as I sometimes don’t get as much sleep as I should, and so this will be used a lot more now.
I got an ARROW BOOST colour enhancing lip balm – but when I tried this, I don’t think the balm changed the colour of my natural lips. So not too sure about the promise that it reacts to your skins’ PH to produce a new and unique lip colour…but it did moisturise the lips well.
Finally, I got Dr PawPaw Original Clear Balm, which I’ve not yet tried. It’s a balm to use on your lips, cuticles and hair… which was nice, because I thought why would they send me two types of lip balms with the ARROW BOOST in the box too – but if it’s a bit more versatile than your standard lip balm then it’s worth trying, right?
