For a minute there I thought that Birchbox* had partnered with Cath Kidston in April in celebration of my birthday – talk about my dream collaboration! But no, it is in fact to celebrate Cath Kidston’s 25th birthday!
To mark Cath Kidston’s special milestone, the April Birchbox has been transformed using a specially designed Birthday Rose print and as part of the five beauty treats inside, everyone will receive a limited edition Cath Kidston Hand Cream. Available only to Birchbox subscribers, the exclusive scent and beautiful packaging has been developed to match the April Birchbox perfectly.
So as always there are five beauty treats and I think it is a really nice mix of skincare and makeup this month. First up we have the Model Co Baked Highlighter which promises to be an instant complexion illuminator. Just swirl with a fluffy brush across the marbled powder and sweep over your cheekbones. Next is the Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow Illuminator. This lightweight formula makes it easy to achieve smooth, dewy skin. It hydrates and calms, evens tone, controls shine, blurs fine lines and boosts radiance. It can be used on its own or as a makeup base. Then we have the exclusive Cath Kidston hand cream which not only looks as pretty as a picture but is perfectly handbag sized too.
Next is the Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel in blonde, brunette and black. I got the brunette one and have to say that it is spot on. I don’t normally do anything thing with my eyebrows I just leave them au natural but I really like this. It just gives a really natural looking definition without any risk of crunchy or sticky brow hairs. And last but by no means least is the Lumene Valo Light Overnight Bright Sleeping Cream which does all the hard work for you while you sleep. Cloudberry seed extract, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid work in harmony to replenish your skin’s natural moisture levels and restore luminosity to your complexion.
Also inside this month’s box you will find a voucher for 15% off in Cath Kidston when you spend £35 instore or online so the perfect excuse to treat yourself. The new limited edition 25th birthday collection is dreamy just saying! You can also enter a competition to win a £250 Cath Kidston hamper by sharing and tagging your Birchbox Instagram snaps (terms and conditions apply)
The Birchbox x Cath Kidston box is available to purchase now for the normal monthly subscription price of £10 (plus £2.95 p&p) Go on, brighten up your day!
*For the purpose of this review I was very kindly sent a press sample of this month’s Birchbox but I would only ever recommend a product or service that I hand on heart truly love (and I hand on heart truly love Birchbox and Cath Kidston!)
