Hey there Frenchies!
So I received box number two of my three month subscription of Birchbox and I wanted to share with you my first impressions.
I got a little excited when I saw on Instagram that Selfridges had teamed up for their Birthday month, September, and I thought we would be getting a real treat. I was a bit disappointed to learn that it is a separate box!! Bit unfair perhaps? Anyhow, on to the box that I received in the post 🙂
As well as all the products you get you little magazine which tells you a bit about the products and how to use them, no extras this month, which I thought there would be seeing as BIRCHBOX have turned 5!
First up, the BIRCHbrush (£5.99)- This is quite cute, seems to be BIRCHBOX’s take on the tangle teaser. Its a great size for popping into your handbag, and does breeze through your hair like a dream, loving it already!
Bliss Lemon and Sage Body Butter (£14)- This Vitamin E enriched boy cream is one of Bliss’ best sellers and has a wonderful citrus smell. I have had Bliss products in the past and I was neither in or out of love with them. I am willing to give this a fair trial and let you know what I think.
Miracle Skin Transformer in Medium (£38)- I have to say it took me a while to figure out what this was as it has leaked in the little pouch (boo). This is a little primer, with SPF20 in it. Im always interested to try new primers and make up as I have mentioned in my last post that I am a bit sceptical about trying new make up! Anyway, I will let you know how I get on.
RUSK, Volumizing Mousse (£14)- I love a Mousse that gives a bit of oomph! This claims to give you a bouffant bounce all day with in built heat protection! Cant go wrong with that! I am always up for new hair products as I am a bit lazy with my hair, and anything that encourages me to make an extra effort is always welcome.
Laqa & Co, Cheeky Lip Pencil in Humble Brag (£17)– This little lip pencil is a BB exclusive and is a gorgeous subtle pink. I love a product that multitasks, and this is no exception. It can be used on lips or cheeks and blends smoothly. Looking forward to trying this and feeding back to you all.
Benefit, The POREfessional: license to blot (£15.50)- I make it no secret that I love Benefit products, and I am sure this one will be no different! I have never tried this before, it is an oil blotting stick, and can reduce shine for up to 6 hours! Big claims, lets put it to the test!
I hope you enjoyed reading my first Impressions of this months BIRCHBOX, I am looking forward to trying out all the products and coming back to you at the end of the month and advise you all on the items I would invest in!
As always, if you fancy researching BIRCHBOX or fancy reading last months post you can do so here!
