Birchbox has collaborated with This is Mothership for the ultimate edit of beauty essentials for busy mums in time for a very special edition box for Mother’s Day. I was lucky enough to be sent one to review* here on my blog. From clever timesavers to pampering treats, this is a must-have kit for women who deserve to look and feel great. Sam and Gemma, the in-the-know duo from This is Mothership, have handpicked eight of their beauty must-haves for a vibrant Birchbox in This is Mothership’s signature leopard print.
First of all I have to say just how much I love the box itself. As you can see it is jumbo sized packed with eight beauty treats and with leopard print AND stripes, it is probably my favourite design EVER! Just look at it!
Now inside the box first we have we have the This Works In Transit No Traces. Let’s face it, some nights you’re too tired to even brush your teeth let alone cleanse your skin and that’s where these little pads come in handy. With an infusion of rosewater and water mint they cleanse, brighten and calm the skin in seconds. It contains 20 cotton pads so a really generous size to boot. Next is the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in a really versatile taupe shade that can be worn for a subtle daytime look or layered for a more smokey effect. . I love these sticks it really is as easy as colouring in. A quick scribble, blend with your finger and bish bash bosh you’re ready to go. Then we have the full-size Cowshed Cow Pat Moisturising Hand Cream which is one of my all time favourite hand creams. I didn’t know the meaning of dry hands until I had kids and this stuff is the business. You only need a small amount and it smells amazing (and not even a tiny bit of cow pats! Ha!)
Next is the full-size Percy & Reed No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo. I honestly don’t know how I would get through the school week without the help of dry shampoo and the trusty mum bun. This all absorbing dry shampoo restores bounce to limp hair and leaves your do looking shower fresh it is amazing. Then we have the The Wet Brush which is a knot fighting ninja for you (and your little ones!) The specially created bristles are ultra-flexible so glide through all hair types with ease without pulling at your strands or splitting ends. You’ll never use anything else once you try this, I wouldn’t be without mine! Next is the Elemis Superfood Day Cream which I am really excited to try because I have read so many great things about it. This new moisturiser goes above and beyond to perk up tired skin brimming with an active prebiotic to balance, hydrate and smooth skin.
Then we have the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner so create a feline flick when you need your eyes to look instantly wider and more awake. It has a pen style applicator so it allows you to control the thickness of the line you create plus the long-lasting formula holds up day and night. And last but by no means least is the Benefit They’re Real! which has to be one of my all time favourite mascaras. This best-selling formula adds length and volume in a flash plus there is no risk of it running or smudging even after a rainy day in the park or a stint in a sweaty soft play! Now this is technically a sample size product but I have to say that it is a really generous sample size!
This capsule collection of failsafe products that really work is priced at £24 and available now exclusively at birchbox.co.uk. Harnessing the expertise of Sam’s award-winning beauty editor knowledge and Gemma’s stylish eye for details, the box is the perfect one-stop shop for women everywhere. Alongside the products you’ll find in-box styling tips and tricks from the duo making it a fun and pampering gift for any mother, daughter, sister, friend or even of course, yourself!
P.S. Not surprisingly, these special edition boxes always sell out fast and once they are gone, they are gone… So don’t miss out and order yours today!
