Mermaid Vibes Birchbox up for review

August 2017: Mermaid Vibes Birchbox up for review by top UK blogger Mostly Yummy Mummy

This month Birchbox are inviting you to embrace your mermaid vibes with a box of beauty treats that’s guaranteed to make waves in your daily routine. There’s always been something magical about mermaids, which is why they’re the inspiration for August’s beautiful box design and the products inside. After all, when it comes to their beachy waves, shimmering eyelids and glistening skin, mermaids are serious summer beauty goals.

First of all can we just take a minute to admire the box itself. I think this is quite possibly my favourite design ever I absolutely love it! I use my old boxes for all sorts of things not just beauty products. The little drawer ones are particularly handy for storage.

Anyway, let’s take a look inside this month’s Birchbox. First of all we have the Huygens Supernature Cream which is a Birchbox exclusive. This is your secret weapon in the quest for hydrated even skin. It is packed with organic rose water to boost circulation and soothe redness and naturally smooths away dead skin cells for instant radiance. Next is the LOC One and Done Shadow Stick which is a full size product and another Birchbox exclusive. You might remember me reviewing these LOC shadow sticks last year I absolutely love them. They are so easy to use and blend to give a lovely soft smokey look.

This month every subscriber gets a full size Spectrum Collections A05 brush. Not only is it oh-so-pretty but it is made from synthetic animal friendly bristles for foolproof blending of your favourite products. Then we have the Number 4 Sugar Texturizing Spray which is a Birchbox exclusive. You lightly spray through dry or damp hair then style as usual to create loose shiny waves without any crunch. And last but by no means least we have the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or which is a huge favourite of mine. Nuxe products always smell so fantastic and not only does this dry oil nourish your face, body and hair but it also leaves a little golden radiance that any mermaid would approve of.

This month subscribers could also opt for the added extra of this set of four gorgeous mermaid themed pin badges and I was lucky enough to be sent some along with my Birchbox this month. I popped them straight on to my denim jacket before my girls could claim them as their own! I love them! I think it is safe to say that I am mostly mermaid!

You too can get the UK’s number one beauty box with 5 personalised beauty treats delivered every month for just £9.99 (plus £2.95 p&p) and every August box comes with a Spectrum brush. If you sign up now, you also get a free full size Nails Inc. Polish plus a make up bag but hurry it’s only while stocks last!
