July Birchbox: The Birchbag

Birchbag Birchbox July 2015
When I heard Birchbox were swapping their box for a bag this month I was super excited to see what they had in store. When it landed on my doorstep, I couldn’t of been happier! The Birchbag is a fluorescent neon splash proof pouch that comes in 4 colours, each inspired by dream destinations of four beauty editors. The Birchbag is perfect for anyone who’s going on holiday this summer. It’s not big enough to store full size make up items or many travel size items for that matter however it will be handy storage for say a few beach essentials or maybe even your passport and travel documents. I really love this idea of swapping the box for a bag and not only is the bag great but the contents this month are pretty good too. Want to see what I got in my Birchbag? Read on..

Pura Vida Bracelet Headbands
First up is something a little different.. At first I had no clue what this was until I read the booklet. It’s a pretty lace headband that will be perfect if you’re lying around sunbathing or exploring wherever it is you may be on holiday. This is a nice little addition among beauty products.

Unani Body Treatment Aloe Vera
If you end up getting bitten or sunburnt on your holiday then this is the perfect product for that. An ultra-hydrating lotion packed with aloe vera to calm your skin. It can also be used on blemishes, eczema etc. I’ve given this a go already and it is very good at relieving any pain or itching.

Pop Beauty Eyeshadow Trio in Peach Parfait
I was so happy to see this eyeshadow trio from Pop Beauty in my Birchbag, I’ve never tried any products by Pop Beauty but these eyeshadows are pigmented, silky, long wearing and look gorgeous when worn together. I’m going to be getting a lot of use out of this palette!

Soigne Nail Lacquer in Fruit De La Passion
I’ve heard a lot about Soigne nail lacquers but never have I tried them so I was happy to see this was included! Fruit De La Passion is a lovely wearable summer colour, the perfect holiday mani. I haven’t worn this yet but I have high hopes for this nail lacquer from Soigne!

Indemne Eau de Genie
I actually thought this was a perfume at first but it’s in fact a treatment for your skin for usage after cleansing. It’s described as a ‘skincare supercharger in a bottle’. Packed with four organic waters such as lemon and apricot and is said to rejuvenate, brighten and soften your skin.

Benefit Dream Screen
The last product is this handy little sample of Benefit’s Dream Screen. This is an ultra lightweight sunscreen with a matte finish that is said to absorb quickly while keeping your complexion hydrated and protected with SPF 45. This sample is so tiny that I’d say you’d only get a few uses out of it so I’m keeping this until I go abroad in October.

Each product this month as you can probably tell was inspired by summer, travel and more. All perfect items if you’re going abroad or even sunbathing in your own garden! I especially love the Soigne Nail Lacquer as it is just so pretty and my perfect nail colour, also the Pop Beauty Eyeshadow Trio is just beyond stunning and like I said, I will be getting a lot of use out of this palette for sure.
