Beauty: Birchbox May Beauty Box Review

Birchbox May Beauty Box Edition*
I’m pretty sure that this month’s edition of Birchbox was designed with beauty bloggers in mind. It’s so gorgeous and who doesn’t love a bit of marble? I am currently trying to think of other ways I can use this box instead of just as beauty product storage as it’s far too pretty.

Anyway, onto this month’s Birchbox which includes treats from Marsk, Doucce, Dr Brandt, Kueshi and Whish. This month’s box is all abut the little changes which can make a big difference to your daily rituals and with 5 brands I haven’t come across before, I was excited about this months box. 

 Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Fifty Shades - RRP £14.49 (Full Size)

If you’re a fan of the Smokey eye look, then you’ll love this mineral eye shadow from Marsk. It’s made from all natural ingredients and what’s great about this eye shadow is that a little goes a long way. I’m normally not a same of mineral products (unless it’s powder) but I really like this. I use a eye defining brush and use this in the outer sections of my eyes to create a subtle Smokey look.

Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara - RRP £18*
Doucce is an up and coming brand from the US. They combine high fashion and contemporary packaging to create a trendy but chic brand. If you’re looking for a mascara that defines your lashes without being clumpy, you’ll get along well with this mascara. This mascara is great for length and thickness and giving off the look as if you’re wearing a fake pair of lashes on.

What I really like about beauty boxes is that they always include a hair treatment and so I was excited to see this shine and volume mask from Kueshi in this months box. I love using treatments like this about once a week and so I’ll report back once I’ve tried this one out!
 Whish Firming Body Cream - RRP £27*

At the moment I am absolutely obsessed with body cream. When the weather is slightly hotter in the UK I feel like I need to take more care of my legs and shaving and making sure my pins are on point. I like using this cream after I’ve been in the shower to hydrate my skin and this cream is also great for banishing the appearance of unwanted blemishes.

Dr Brandt is another brand I’ve never heard of but I am sure I’ll be hearing a lot more about (despite it being more on the higher end side of beauty!) this product is inspired by Dr Brandt’s in-office microdermabrasion. This product is packed with pharmaceutical-grade crystals and lactic acid which helps polish your skin and refine the texture of it. The best way to use this exfoliant is once or twice a week and then to gently massage onto damp skin, leaves for a couple of minutes and wash away.

You can sign up to Birchbox for as little as £10 a month here.

We got Birchbox in Canada for only a few months but the samples were pathetically small and the subcription fizzles out after a few months. I love that Dr. Brant exfoliant, it's amazing! Doucche mascara on the other hand did nothing for my lashes.
