|June 2014 Birchbox* (£10 + p&p)|
Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask | £55 for the full kit.
Admittedly at first I wasn't that excited about this, but after having a little look around the website I'm so glad the box has introduced me to this brand. The online shop doesn't seem to be open yet, but it will contain kits to make luxury, all-natural beauty products at home. Each kit will contain instructions and all the ingredients and the rest is up to you. A brand I'm going to keep an eye on for sure because I've never come across anything quite like it.
Mini O.P.I Nail Polish from the Brazil Collection | Full size £11.95
I think this shade is called Where Did Suzi's Man-go? and it's a beautiful bright mango orange polish with a creme finish. It looks like it's going to be pretty opaque and this will be going on my toes this afternoon to inject a little bit of summer into my life despite the torrential rain outside. Thanks British summer!
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre Nourishing Moisturiser | from £12.99
Although this is only a tiny sample, I'm still pleased to finally be able to give it a try after hearing so many good things about it for years. It promises to soothe skin with natural ingredients, being suitable for all skin types. From what I've heard this is a no-frills moisturiser that hydrates well and is a lovely base for make up. Looking forward to trying it!
Caudalie Divine Oil | from £18
This both smells and feels divine, they're certainly not wrong there! This is a dry oil that sinks in incredibly quickly, hydrating the skin beautifully while leaving a silky sheen and a delicate fragrance. This is a lovely product, very luxurious and a wonderful addition to the box this month.
Beauty Blender & Solid Blender Cleanser | £26
As soon as I opened the box and saw this inside, I was instantly impressed. Even if there were no other products inside I would have been thrilled with just this! It's made an otherwise great box into an amazing box!
Last month I bought the Real Techniques Sponge to try, not really knowing if I'd use it that much, and I've used it every single day. I was beginning to think about buying a Beauty Blender, I've had one in my cart a few times but talked myself out of purchasing every time. I'm beyond excited to have this bright pink little sponge in my life. There's also a little Blender Cleanser in there, which is nice to try and I'll be interested to see if it's better than what I've been using for my Real Techniques sponge so far.
Birchbox Brazil Inspired Keyring | Lifestyle Extra
I love the lifestyle extra idea and this one doesn't disappoint. It's super fun and going straight on my keys to brighten them up!
I'm beyond impressed! This is easily the best box I've seen in a long long time, if not the best box I've ever seen from any beauty subscription service. A nice mix of well-known brands, an exciting sounding new brand, and a little bit of fun too. Well done Birchbox UK!
