Shine bright like a diamond with Birchbox

Following on from last month’s theme Best. Year. Ever. Birchbox will be encouraging you to shine bright like a diamond this February with this sparkler of a box. They have teamed up with luxury diamond specialists Vashi for a very special competition involving two exciting prizes. Inside one lucky subscriber’s February Birchbox there is a beautiful diamond necklace worth £200. Not received something sparkly in your box? No me neither but don’t worry, there is a second opportunity for to win. You can read more about it here on the Birchbox blog. Good luck!

Now for a peek inside this month’s Birchbox! I was so excited to hear about the launch of the new in house beauty line Love Of Color this month and we have been treated to a full size Shadow Stick. Mine came in the Perfect Cents colour and it comes in this handy stick that can be used as a bold liner or blended with your fingertips on your lids to create a softer look. It’s basically like colouring in for make up I love it! So easy to use and it has a lovely crease free finish. Next we have the Ayres Body Butter which is really rich but soaks in fast to leave your skin feeling instantly moisturised. It smells amazing too with hints of jasmine, lavender and ylang-ylang.

Then we have the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster which is my star product this month. I adore serums I swear they have transformed my skincare routine but this really is lovely. This miracle worker uses a high powered vitamin C complex to smooth fine lines, plump and protect skin. You only need a tiny dot it is such a rich but lightweight formula. Next we have the full size Spectrum Collections Tapered Powder Brush which makes light work of powder application thanks to the precisely shaped tip and super soft tapered bristles. It looks pretty too!

Next we have the extra beauty bonus of the L Erickson Grab & Go Ponytail Holder. I love these elastics they are so sturdy plus there are no metal bits to snag on your hair. And last but by no means least, we have The Balm Cosmetics Frat Boy which can be used as a blush or shadow. Just swish your brush over the blush and apply to the apples of yoyr cheeks to give a rosy glow.

You can subscribe to Birchbox the UK’s number one beauty box and receive five luxe beauty treats each month for just £10 (plus £2.95 p&p) As you might have guessed, I absolutely love Birchbox it is such a lovely treat every month. It’s such a great way of trying out new beauty products and of course, you can also go on to buy full size products in the fab Birchbox shop too.
