I’m back again with a Birchbox review and this month Birchbox are celebrating their 5th birthday! Happy Birthday Birchbox UK and thank you for your fabulous boxes and beauty treats!!
This months Birchbox comes in a beautiful tin box. It’s a white box with a pretty blue floral print and would make a great box to keep your keepsafes in (or your beauty essentials!).
The first beauty treat is a Compact Eyeshadow by Ella Eden. This is a lovely shimmery eyeshadow with great colour payoff; great for a night out if you want to pack it on (with a wet brush for that extra bolder colour) but you can also lightly dab this on for more of a natural day look.
Next, we have the POREfessional Pearl Primer by Benefit. This is an oil-free texture with added pink pigment for brightness. This will minimise the look of pores and help the skin look bright and radiant. The packaging is super cute too!
The next beauty essential is a must for me! Number 4 Smoothing Balm – protects the hair against humidity and heat damage while minimising frizz and restoring smoothness. This is to be used on damp hair and then styled. My hair is crazy so this will definitely be used very quickly by me!
The next beauty treat is very timely as we’re having a heat wave in the UK – a sunscreen! Very important! Polaar, Velvety Sun Fluid Face & Body. This sunscreen sinks in to the skin quickly without leaving any white residue and protects your skin – it smells nice too!
Next up we have a Lord & Berry Highlighter Pencil. This is a vitamin infused pencil highlighter with a good colour payoff to highlight and brighten the high points of your face. I love me a bit of shimmer and highlighter so this is a very exciting product to receive in this months Birchbox! Being a pencil you can also easily apply it in the inner corner of your eyes and dab with your finger.
Finally, an edible product (kind of!)! Whittard of Chelsea Teabags! I’m a British-Indian girl who loves her tea so this is a more than welcome treat to receive! 3 blends – Earl Grey, Lemon & Ginger and Mango & Bergamot; these will go down a treat, that’s for sure!
Yet another fabulous box by Birchbox (do Birchbox even know how to get it wrong?!)
I love the range of products that come in these boxes, there’s always something for everyone and lots of new products to discover!
