Birchbox UK may 2013

It's that time of the month. Uh-huh. BIRCHBOX DAY.


First impression; wow.

Elemental Herbology cell plumping facial hydration:
This product smells like a rose bed. It glides on like a dream and makes your skin look plump and fresh. This sample is really generous as you only need to use a small amount each time. Buy for £42 (here).

B/Attitude Body souffle:
Thick in the tub but not greasy on the skin. Slightly sweet scent and really moisturising. Buy for £24 (here).

Kusmi Tea Detox:
This tea is delicious but a little fiddly. You're given the contents of a teabag, without a teabag. I uses a mini sieve and place a little of the tea in it then poured hot water until it was just above the product and left it for 2 minutes. In those two minutes the gorgeous aroma of lemongrass will fill your kitchen and smell like a dream. Really liked this little extra. Buy for £13.85 (here).

O.P.I nail lacquer in "San Tan-tonio":
I'm a massive fan of OPI so i was delighted to see this little gem in the box. It's a gorgeous everyday nude that is really long lasting on the nails and suits for all skin tones. Buy for £11.50 (here).

                                                                         One coat

Make believe enhance highlighter:
This is my favourite product in the box. At first sight it looks like a powder but as soon as i swatched it I realised it was smooth, creamy, goodness. As it's a cream it's really blendable and easy to manage. To me, this is more of an eyeshadow shade which will be great for sprucing up everyday nude eyes. Buy for £7.50 (here).



So if you sign up for this box not only will you be recieving a load of amazing goodies you will be giving £5 to a really deserving cause. Money is only donated if you sign up through this link: http://birchbox.co.uk/?raf=8120  Also, if you buy anything from the birchbox e-shop 30% of the money paid will go towards "Fashion targets breast cancer".

What are you waiting for? Do a good deed and get rewarded!
