Birchbox is brand I completely adore, I think they have really pushed the boundaries when it comes to beauty boxes and it makes my day when my Birchbox arrives in the post each month. This month’s edition is actually a Birchbag (which is so cool!) and it comes in 4 different colour ways and the contents of each Birchbag are slightly different.
I received the neon pink edition and the contents are so good. The brands in this months box are Marcelle, Philip Kingsley; Balance Me, Anatomicals, Merci Handy and English Laundry.
Anatomicals Citrus Body Scrub (full size)
Anatomicals is a brand I always seem to buy something from when I’m in an Urban Outfitters store. I love the eye masks and facemasks but I have never tried any other products from the range. When it comes to body scrubs I absolutely ADORE citrus products and this body scrub smells dreamy.
Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner - £10.50
When you’re on holiday (or to the gym) waterproof products are a lifesaver. If you’re a subscriber you’ll receive this eyeliner in either Expresso or Mulberry and I have the Expresso shade. I love using this eyeliner when I’m going for a more neutral eye look.
I’ve received an English Laundry perfume before in a beauty box (I am not sure which one) but I remember not being keen on the fragrance but this perfume I love. It’s a light scent, which is inspired from blossom-filled country gardens and has top notes of rose geranium and white blooms so no wonder this smells so good!
Philip Kingsley products are definitely on the more higher end side of beauty market. I’ve seen the products before in my local Marks and Spencer but I’ve only ever tried Philip Kingsley products from beauty boxes. Lately I’ve been really unimpressed with my trusty Batiste shampoo and I’ve been looking for a new dry shampoo to try and so this one came into my life at just the right time! This spray absorbs oils instantly with no residue. This product is a travel size version too, which makes it perfect for putting in your handbag.
Balance Me is a brand I’ve loved for years and I am a big fan of the eye cream and facial washes however, I had never tried out this face mask from the brand. Which is surprising because I absolutely LOVE face masks. This facemask is great for when your skin is looking a little bit on the dull side and you need a mask to boost luminosity and brighten your skin.
I have to say when I saw that their was an anti-bacterial hand wash in this months edition I wasn’t overall impressed but when it comes to everyday use you will always need a hand wash in your handbag. This hand gel is packed with vitamins and hydrates and nourishes your hands too.
