With only one month of Birchbox left to arrive from my gift subscription, *cries*, I thought I would review the last couple of boxes I receive, to give anyone who is interested in becoming a subscriber a little bit of an insight into the kind of products you can expect. I have loved getting boxes over the past 6 months and it will be so tempting to carry on the subscription myself for only £10 a month (not including P&P). I really do think the price is great for the quality of products.
I probably said this last time, you can read my previous Birchbox blog post here, but I think this is my favourite box I have received over the past 5 months. Not only is the packaging perfect for Summer but I am a big fan of the products chosen for me this month.
For a long time I have been tempted to purchase some Spectrum make up brushes so I was really pleased to be able to try one in this box. They are one of those brands that you see all over Instagram so I am delighted to be joining the trend! I also love getting mini body washes and conditioners as I find they are great sizes for travelling. I haven’t heard of either of these brands but that it is one of the reason why I love beauty subscriptions so much, as they provide me with so many new brands to try.
My favourite products in this month’s box have to be the Doucce lip stain and Benefit ‘Hoola’ bronzer. I admit I have never tried Hoola bronzer, shock horror! I know that everyone raves about it but as a self-confessed bargain hunter I have never wanted to spend the money to try it. So getting a sample like this is perfect for me and I look forward to using this on my upcoming holiday or before if the weather in the UK stays nice!
A great feature of Birchbox is that they let you have the choice over one product each month. I chose this lip stain in Steaming Red and was delighted with the colour, although it’s not red in the slightest! I have read reviews that it can be quite drying, so I will be giving it a test shortly on my Instagram so make sure to keep an eye out!
What do you think of this month’s box? Have you looked into trying Birchbox? Please let me know (although I will be very jealous!)
I also have another post coming this weekend, just to spoil ya and because I just have so much to talk about! So stay tuned for that too!
