Birchbox* were my favourite subscription service for quite a while, but I don't think their last couple of boxes have been the best. It must be a logistical nightmare trying to source products for these boxes though so on the whole I don't think they do too badly - there's always variety, which for me is one of the most important things.
I liked doing a beauty box roundup post last month, so I'll be back towards the end of the month with another one, this time with my thoughts on the products themselves and how much use I get (or don't get) out of them over the next couple of weeks.
+ Agave Healing Oil Treatment
+ Premae Mild Dermabraison Face & Body Scrub
+ ModelCo Power Lash Mascara
+ Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in 'Rio'
+ Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream
+ Birchbox Happy Days Photo Clip
+ Urban Fruit Smashing Strawberry Snack Pack
My favourite thing so far is the little sample of the Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream. I'm always on the search for the perfect one and although I'm not sure it exists, I'm quite enjoying trying new ones. I also really like the Urban Fruit lifestyle extra - even Ralphie hopped over and stole one & he's particularly fussy when it comes to fruit so I think it's a winner.
The ModelCo mascara seems really gloopy and the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper is a little too brown toned to work against my skin tone, which is a shame but I'm sure I'll find someone who will be happy to take it off my hands. On first impressions it's not the most exciting box, but maybe by mind will be changed if I'm wowed by a few things.
