So this month I decided to try out a subscription box. I have been toying with the idea for ages, but considering how much I was spending on make up and skin care, it was probably worth trying out a subscription box. After a bit of shopping around and talking with friends that use them, I opted for Birchbox.
February was a great box to start with, how pretty is this box?? The wonderful stationary brand Papier teamed up with Birchbox to create two box designs this month – one this beautiful purple, and the other is green.
With Birchbox you get 5 products to try out each month, with at least one being full sized each month. the best bit? It is only £12.95 a month including postage!!
so, what did I get this month??
This might just have been my favourite product in the box this month. This is a wonderful sheet mask from Korea, the innovators in beauty right now! I had to try this one straight away. The mask was really easy to apply, though I would suggest lying down while wearing it as it kept sliding down my face – there was that much serum in the packet! The serum is made with Mulberries, which are packed full of vitamins A and E.
After a relaxing 25 minutes, my face had never felt so good! The redness on my cheeks had faded and had such a glow to it. It is very pricey to buy, but I would say it was worth every penny. My skin has not looked this good in a long time, and would use these over and over again!!
I am very wary when it comes to new hair products, because my hair seems to disagree with a lot of them. Though, I was excited to try this one. My hair gets really dry this time of year and gets so tuggy to the point it looks like I have dreadlocks at the back of my head!
This spray claims to hydrate hair as well as detangle. To be on the safe side, I tried it out on my day off. I just put a few strays at the bottom my hair while it was damp, combed it through and then styled it as normal. and the best bit? It actually worked!! My hair was so easy to brush while it was wet and once it was dry it was so fluffy and my curls seemed to hold a lot better than normal – even in the wind!! I have only tried it once so far, but I am pleasantly surprised with this. Hopefully it will stay this way and start to hydrated my hair.
This was like the dream thing to get in a subscription box! I have been obsessing over Spectrum brushes for sooooo long!! This is such a lovely, fluffy brush which is perfect for blending eyeshadows. I am quite simple when it comes to my eye make up, and this is the perfect brush to use when I’m rushing my make up in the morning before work. All I can say is – go get one!!
now, this one kind of baffled me. I wasn’t so keen on the idea of putting more oil on my skin, but oh my goodness! This stuff is magical! I am still too afraid to put it on my face, but has worked miracles on dry skin on my arms, and I tried it out on the ends of my hair over night and it made such a difference. I don’t know that I would buy it, but it is a nice wee bottle to have on my dressing table.
This is such a pretty little combo of eye shadow shades. As I said, I am quite simple with my eye make up so this was a great wee addition to my collections. The colours are just beautiful, and are nice and pigmented. I might just have to get myself the full sized palette!
So, that is all for this months box, I am already excited for next months!
