With summer stretching ahead, it’s time to say yes to adventure with Birchbox* this month. Throughout July the Birchbox blog will be packed full of ideas encouraging you to be bold and try something new, however big or small. That might mean buying those festival tickets, rocking a new hair-do or stepping outside your beauty comfort zone.
As always there are five beauty treats inside this months Birchbox. First we have the Eyeko Fat Stick in satin which has a lovely intense colour and glossy finish. I love these little eye shadow sticks because they are just so easy to apply. You just scribble and blend with your finger you don’t even need to use a brush. This stuff really stays put with danger of disappearing or creasing. Next we have the Manna Kadar Long Wear Powder which is in fact not just an eyeshadow but a multi-purpose powder that can be used on cheek, brows and eyes. It has a really lightweight texture so glides on smoothly. Then we have the Beauty Pro Eye Therapy Under Eye Mask which is a 20 minute treatment that promises to help with the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, under eye shadow and dryness. The hydogel pads are infused with soothing green tea, aloe vera and vitamins A and E to leave you bright-eyed in no time.
Next is the What’s in it for me..? Shower Scrub which is infused with uplifting orange and jasmine flower extracts that linger on your skin and sweet almond oil to nourish and prevent dryness. It gently scrubs away dull, dead skin cells with fragments of gritty walnut shells. I love this stuff I think this is my favourite product this month. And last of all is the Balance Me Congested Skin Serum to help prevent those breakouts. I’m a big fan of Balance Me products but I don’t think I’ve tried this before. This soothing serum works to balance skin and refine pores and you can even dab directly on to blemishes as a spot treatment.
