Hey Guys, its that time again, My August Birchbox has just arrived and I have to say that I am super super excited. This Months theme is #BeautyJunkie. Which is right up my street, I love cosmetics, in all shapes and sizes, so to hear that every Birchbox would contain 2 cosmetic items was perfect for me. So lets take a look.
The first thing I love is the box, It is super cute, adorned with adorable beauty emojis. It is perfect for the summer and a box I will keep. All of my items came in the traditional Birchbox bag with a cerise drawstring.
Rituals – Ayurveda Scrub – £10 150ml (70ml received) – Every Birchbox contained a product from Rituals. Mine is the Ayurveda Scrub with Indian Rose & Multani Clay. This is a Exfoliator that is gentle enough to be used everyday. I am a huge fan of exfoliators. I have naturally oily skin that peels. Rubbish combination skin. I am looking forward to trying this out. It smells amazing too.
Lord & Berry – Blush in ‘Lotus’ – £17 (Sample size received) – I am a huge fan of Lord & Berry, I have received a few items from them in previous beauty boxes and they don’t disappoint. Blusher is an essential in my makeup bag so I am happy to receive this. The colour looks dark but when swatched it is a really pretty pink/coral colour, You can build this up as needed, it feels velvety soft when applied and I will be purchasing the full size when this has done (which won’t be long as the sample size is a little small).
Huygens – Exfoliating Cream – £17.90 50ml (10ml received) – Now this is a Birchbox Exclusive. This brand has never appeared in birchbox before. This is a Exfoliating cream that is gentle enough for daily use and contains rice powder particles that smoothes and purifies without irritation, perfect for sensitive skin.
Kebelo – Clarifying Shampoo – £13.95 250ml (50ml received) – I’m not a huge fan of receiving shampoo in my boxes as the samples are never really big enough and they don’t really excite me. Although, this sounds different. This is a deep cleansing shampoo that detoxes your hair and scalp leaving your hair feeling soft and purified. This is what my hair needs. After years of colouring and hair products my hair is damaged and dull.
TheBalm – Balm Desert Bronzer – £13.95 6g (1g received) – How excited am I to receive a product form TheBalm. One of my all time favourite Brands. The Desert Bronzer is a typical bronzer that is velvety to the touch, has a hint of shimmer and does not look dark or muddy when applied. I love this product, apart from the tiny sample which could have been bigger to be fair. This is my favourite product in the box.
Extras!! Formula 10.0.6 Overnight Success Spot Minimizing Patches – Full Size received £2.95 – I love extras, and this is perfect for me, As a woman who still suffers with breakouts, applying these little patches that reduce redness for a smoother complexion will be a god-send.
Birchbox Emoji Stickers – well these are just cute and fun!
