I decided to try out Birchbox's beauty box when I read and watched countless unboxing's of their products. At first I was extremely sceptical but recently I plucked up the courage and entered my details! This is my second month of receiving a box full of joy, and was very pleased with the contents so I thought 'hey why not blog it!' For those of you that have no clue about what I talking about I will explain, every month you get a box filled with beauty, hair and general pieces of loveliness. These are all catered to your profile they ask you about your skin type, hair type, favourite things and so on. I personally love this because it makes you feel special every time you open it, I turn into a small child on Christmas eve being able to open one present! So without further or do lets get on with the great unveiling of this months box entitled 'WORK IT!'
Firstly once I took of the lid I was stunned by a beautiful pink pouch which held all of my goodies!
After opening the pouch the first item I took out was Meaningful Beauty- Anti Ageing Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules. I personally don't feel the need for these as I am only 16 but I'm thinking that my Mum would love to give these a go! All of the items in the box are minis so you can literally try before you buy, the full size product costs £39.50
|Sorry the picture isn't too good:)|
The next item is Shaveworks- The Cool Fix. I love this product because it does really work! It claims to treat ingrowing hairs, razor bumps and after hair removal. This product comes into its own after I get my brows waxed, I have very thick brows so waxing produces lots of unwanted redness for me, but I just pop the cooling gel on after and it helps to cool down the skin also I love the smell it just reminds me of a lovely hot bubble filled bath. (If that description even makes sense hehe) The full size of this product costs £11.
Balance me is next with Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm, I have always been on the fence about face balms as for me I have very oily/combination skin and things like this tend to leave me with blemish after blemish....so far I haven't encountered any mountains on my face but then again I haven't been using this for very long so I will have to give you an update! One thing that puts me off about this product is the smell, it smells very organic which to me isn't very pleasant. The full version of this costs £20
This product was an absolute saviour to me, as the wind and the rain set in my lips were getting progressively cracked. It is of course Pixi's shea butter lip balm. As the lip balm contains shea butter it is very smoothing and nourishing on your lips, also it has a slight nude tint which means you can have a bare face and still rock it! The full size costs £8.
Next I received Hair Play Dry Wax from KMS California. As of yet I haven't tried any of these sort of products before as they tend to make my hair brittle and dry, but Ill give this ago and report back! The full bottle costs £15.
Lastly I got a handy little pen shaped as a lipstick which I think is super quite and will definitely be going in my handbag as a handy essential.
Overall I really enjoyed this months box, I think its a great way to discover new products. Especially when you get things you wouldn't have bought for yourself! I hope you enjoyed todays blog post, this is my first ever post and would love you to leave comments below and tweet me ideas for the next one!
