This month sees Birchbox celebrate six fabulous years with the return of the original kraft box. Birchbox started out with a simple idea to make beauty discovery delightful and highly effective and is now in 6 countries and the number one beauty box in the UK. This month sees them set to reach 100,000 subscribers in the UK alone which is a huge milestone and certainly something worth celebrating.
Inside this months box they have rounded up some amazing beauty products from around the globe to deliver five personalised picks just for you. Come and take a look inside my Birchbox this March.
So first up we have the Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip and mine came in Pink Thrills which is a gorgeous bright pink perfect for spring. I’ve been dying to try this as I’m a huge fan of the They’re Real! Mascara! It has an innovative teardrop tip with a liner at the top and long-lasting lipstick at the bottom. The two in one formula delivers vibrant colour for visibly fuller lips. The shape makes it really easy to apply as it follows the natural line of your own lips. Next is the Batiste 2-in-1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner which is another item that I was really keen to try. I’m a big fan of Batiste dry shampoo but haven’t tried this new 2-in-1 formula yet. I honestly don’t know how I ever survived without dry shampoo it is such a life saver. I will do anything to extend those in between hair wash days, I don’t know about you? Mine came in the Orange & Pomegranate flavour and smelt amazing. This new formula is meant to refresh roots and nourish dry ends for happy hair but unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations. I have quite fine hair so am always careful not to overload it with conditioner anyway but this formula actually left my hair feeling really lank and not at all refreshed. If you normally find that standard dry shampoo dries your hair out then it will probably be perfect for you but this didn’t do anything for my hair I’m afraid. Oh well I’ve tried it now so at least I know!
Next we have the Bobbi Brown Multi-Mask Kit which comes with three separate face masks to give you a custom skincare experience. Oily t-zone? De-slick with Instant Detox. Dull cheeks? Brighten up with Radiance Boost. Dry patches? Soothe with Skin Nourish. Such a great little kit it really is three samples in one. Then we have the Korres Santorini Vine Shower Gel which is the ultimate morning pick me up in a gorgeous fresh and fruity scent. This stuff is packed with nourishing wheat proteins to help moisturise your skin while it cleanses. And last but by no means least we have the Balance Me Instant Lift Primer. This 99% natural blend of hyaluronic acid and acacia gum tightens and diffuses for smoother refined skin. You simply smooth over your skin to prime and tighten following your usual moisturiser.
Also inside this month’s Birchbox is a discount code for 20% off your next order from The Birchbox Shop. One of the things that I love about my Birchbox subscription is that I can find all the full size items to buy in The Birchbox Shop. It is just so handy when you find something that you really love. And luckily for me it has come just at the right time as I was just about to order another Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (love that stuff!) but I might treat myself to the Vinoperfect Moisturizing Sorbet as well now and make the most the 20% discount!
