This month, Birchbox gave us the choice between two boxes with a different selection of products inside. Since I first subscribed back in March, this is the first time I’ve known what products I’ll be receiving in the box. I decided to choose the Stylist Guest Editor Box curated by Stylist Magazine Associate Beauty Editor, Joanna McGarry as the product choice seemed better than the Back to Basics Box. As always, this months box features 6 products from various brands..
The product I got majorly excited about was the teeny tiny Bioderma Sensibio H2O. When I read that they were including a small bottle of Bioderma, I didn’t think it would be THIS small. It literally fits in the palm of my hand and is just the cutest thing. Although I have a small 100ml version of Bioderma for my holiday, it’s only half full so I’ll be popping this in too incase I run out!
Another product received in perfect time is the When Travelmate Sheet Masks. These masks are said to work wonders to soothe skin damaged by dry air, wind, UV rays and fatigue. I’ll definitely be popping these in my suitcase!
A gorgeous lip product is featured this month and I’ve fallen in love! It’s the 100% Pure Fruit Pigment Lip Glaze. The shade I received is Sultry and I would best describe it as a nude brown. The formula of this lip glaze is creamy and keeps the lips hydrated, it also smells amazing as it is made with pigments from fruits like cherries and blackberries. The packaging is also stunning!
There was a perfume sample included this month, something I’m never too pleased about when included in a beauty box however it is a gorgeous perfume. It’s from the brand English Laundry and is their No.7 perfume. It’s very fruity and very much a summer scent so not really one for this time of year unless like me, you like wearing these kind of scents all year round.
I was so happy to see a Rituals product included in a Birchbox again after loving the Rituals Fortune Scrub I received in the August box. This time round it’s the Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel included which is a shower gel that foams on contact with water so theres no need to lather – this does it for you. It sounds fab and smells oh so good, I can’t wait to try it out!
The last product comes from Parlour by Jeff Chastain. This brand has been featured before with their Sea Salt Spray making an appearance in May’s box. This month it’s the Smoothing Blow Out Spray. This is said to add instant volume, shine and protect the hair from heat damage. I’ve only tried one blowout spray from Label.M before and I haven’t really been too impressed so I’m looking forward to seeing how this compares!
I definitely think I chose the right box this month. Looking at the Back to Basics Box, the products just don’t really appeal. I mean, toothpaste? No thanks. If you like the look of Birchbox and fancy subscribing you can do so here. It’s only £12.95 a month and you get 6 deluxe beauty samples delivered to your door in a gorgeous box every month. It’s really worth it, not just for the box but for the points system as well! Each month, if you review the products you receive you’ll build up points which eventually can be spent in the Birchbox shop, I currently have £30 worth and can’t wait to have a little spree soon.
