This months Birchbox features a collaboration with the brand, French Sole. This month we had a choice between 3 gorgeous box designs – the one I chose was described as the ‘From Paris With Love’ box which I had to choose as I’m obsessed with stripes and I love Paris (who doesn’t?). The other two boxes featured a beautiful watercolour-like flower design and the other looked a bit like liquorice allsorts sweets to me! Inside along with the 6 products there is also a shoe bag in the same design as your chosen box which will definitely come in handy! Maybe not for shoes as such but for storage purposes. I’ll stop rambling on now and finally get onto what products were in my Birchbox this month..
Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash
This month each box will contain one full size (100ml) product. I love Balance Me as a brand so I was super happy to see this body wash in the box! This body wash is said to be soothing and moisturising thanks to its rich shea butter formulation. Apparently this is so moisturising it also takes away the need to moisturise after your shower which is great if you’re in a hurry! Can’t wait to try it out!
Penhaligon’s Iris Prima Eau De Parfum
Next up is a little sample of the Iris Prima perfume from Penhaligon’s. It’s a gorgeous perfume, definitely something I’d wear. It contains notes of bergamot, jasmine sambac and vanilla just to name a few (there are a lot of notes in this perfume!) Penhaligon’s describe it’s ‘personality’ as Contemporary & Understated. While I really like this perfume, it’s unlikely I’d ever buy it as it’s pretty pricey! A 50ml costs £88.00!
HIP Ultra Shine Shampoo
I was a bit disappointed to see a shampoo in this month’s box as I have lots of full size and sample size shampoos lying around however after reading up on this shampoo by HIP I’m quite looking forward to giving it a go. It’s a brightening shampoo that uses a specially created oxygenated formula to detoxify and rejuvenate the scalp. My scalp is very dry at the moment so I’m hoping this may help! Fingers crossed.
Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stain in Poppy
Next is a lip stain from fashion designer Cynthia Rowley’s beauty line. This lip stain is the tiniest lip sample I’ve ever seen but it is the perfect size for popping in your handbag! I haven’t tried this lip stain out yet however the shade ‘Poppy’ is gorgeous.
Styl London Temporary Tattoos
Temporary tattoos have well and truly made a comeback! Perfect for festivals, parties etc these are definitely the must have summer accessory. I will probably be wearing these at my event this coming weekend and I’m pretty excited to try them out, hopefully they apply well and look nice!
Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes
The product I was most excited about in this months box were these facial wipes by Yes To. A brand that I’ve been dying to try out for ages after reading rave reviews. I haven’t used facial wipes in years to remove make up but these are lovely! Obviously you need a few to remove all your make up and theres only 10 in the pack so these won’t last long unfortunately.
That’s all the products in this months Birchbox! I wouldn’t say it’s the best box from them however it is still pretty good.
