What’s your dream? It could be a holiday destination, finally meeting a move star crush, finding that perfect lasts-all-night red lipstick or even just a full uninterrupted nights sleep… Well this month Birchbox have been inspired by fantastic dreams for the very special box design which is actually hidden under a scratch coating. So get a coin out and scratch away the coating to reveal it!
Plus, if you’re one of the two subscribers that have an extra special message on the top of your box – you’ve won a dream holiday courtesy of luxury holiday experts Destinology! Now, I used my special Queen Victoria penny to scratch away mine but sadly, it didn’t bring me any luck. But on the bright side that means the winning boxes are still out there to be found! And hopefully by YOU!
I might not have won a holiday but inside the box, there was a dreamy selection of treats. First of all we have the Spectrum Collections Unicorn Tears Wonder Sponge which as you can see is full sized. This nifty little sponge helps you to achieve truly flawless makeup. The rounded end means that you can blend your base seamlessly into your skin while the pointed tip gets into all those hard to reach areas. Next we have theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen which I absolutely love. This raspberry tinted stain can add a long lasting flush of colour to cheeks and lips. It has a water based formula which gives it a longer setting time than most stains but this means you have the chance to blend it properly before it sets. I have found it to be really long lasting too.
Then we have the Philip Kingsley PK Prep Polishing Balm. Forget flyaways, frazzled hair and dry ends, this balm to serum formula leaves every hair type feeling smooth and conditioned and looking sleek and glossy. It delivers ProVitamin B5 and Vitamin A to nourish deep down and it smells lovely! Next we have the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet which I was really excited to try. I am a huge fan of Caudalie products and this did not disappoint. This unique gel-cream formula hydrates, reduces redness and instantly smooths skin. I have been using it morning and night after my serum my skin absolutely loves it!
Next up is the Rituals Tao Wai Wang Mild Exfoliating Body Scrub which couldn’t have come at a better time. I don’t know about you but my skin could certainly benefit from a little extra pampering before I reveal it to the world after what has felt like the longest winter ever! You simply massage this into damp skin using circular motions then rinse away. The blend of ultra fine Chinese bamboo particles and calming white lotus helps slough dead cells away to leave skin smooth. It feels like such a treat I’m not surprised it has been described as a spa treatment in a pot! And last but by no means least we have a little added extra of the Vita Coco Coconut Oil. Unless you have been hiding in a cave for the last five years I’m sure you have already heard of the endless uses for this dream oil. It can be used for your hair, skin, to remove makeup.. you name it! This 100% raw blend is a beauty must have for all skin types.
