So today I was delighted to find a bright pink box waiting for me when I got back from a day at uni. I was really looking forward to this month's Birchbox as last month's was so good! As you can imagine, I ripped it open as quickly as I could, and let me tell you, I am not disappointed! So, let's take a look at what the box had in store...
1. Vichy 'Eau Thermale'
As far as I can tell, this is one of those skin refreshing mists comparable to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I personally have never wanted to splash out £20+ for a product that could potentially be nothing more than a face mist. So, I am pretty happy to have received this as I can try it out without having to fork out!
2. Nick Chaves 'Plump 'n Thick'
I am always up for trying out new hair care so I was really excited by this product. As the name suggests, this spray helps to add volume to your hair. I naturally have quite voluminous hair so I am interested to see how this works for me!
3. Korres 'Guava' Shower Gel
Yay! I have always wanted to try out some Korres products! I am really happy with this as I feel like Birchbox are really delivering their promise of delivering 'luxury' products (at lease someone is, *Glossybox*) I love the scent of this - can't wait to finish the shower gel I'm using so I can give this a go!
4. Gerda Spillmann Cream-to-Powder Makeup in '01 Praline'
I'm not going to lie, this is very dangerous Birchbox! It's hard enough to find a foundation that matches in a store with testers. I was sent shade 01 which at least suggests that Birchbox have read my beauty profile, but it's slightly still too dark, but should work during summer.
5. Birchbox Eyelash Curlers.
I am SO glad that these were included in the box this month. I have had my MAC ones for about 5 years now and they're not quite what they used to be, yet I've never got round to replacing them.
This is always useful for this time of year, as everyone I know (including myself, unfortunately have re-freshers flu or some other nasty bug. This provides a nice boost of vitamin C to combat nasty colds or to pick you up after a night out. I'm interested to try this out.
Like I mentioned, I am really impressed with this month's box. The foundation was a very risky move, and, from what I've seen, it hasn't worked out. Also, Birchbox seems to be very inconsistent with when their boxes are delivered. By this, I mean that I have seen some people receive their boxes up to 5 days before me. However, this is only their second month in the UK, so I'll allow them some time to sort that out.
I hope you enjoyed this little insight. What do you think of this month's box?
