Finally my Birchbox has arrived!! Birchbox is a subscription beauty box where you receive 5 luxe beauty samples for £10 + £2.95 a month.
It seems the first box they sent me went missing so this is the replacement box. I have received different items than what was on my surveys to get originally but I'm happy with my products. This months theme is all about the World Cup - Global Strikers features products from around the globe.
First the item I was glad to receive - A Beauty Blender! This was one the products on my surveys that I was ment to receive originally, I'm so thankful that they managed to give me one in the replacement box. I have to say I was a little skeptical about this product. I've used plenty makeup brushes and sponges in the past and never found anything that applied my makeup as well and using my fingers! After using this I can now say without a doubt, if you do not have a beauty blender then GET ONE!! Its AMAZING!! My makeup has never looked so flawless. Definately an item I will repurchase. This Beauty Blender comes with a Cleanser to keep the beauty blender clean and retails for a whopping £26. This Birchbox is worth every penny for this item alone. A single Beauty Blender can be bought for £16.
Next is Shea Butter Hair Mask from Silk + Honey. It's part of a DIY kit for £55 which makes 1 x 200ml pot. 50ml sample received making this worth an amazing £13.75. This smells really nice and looking forward to trying this out on my hair. I just love a good hair treament. Unless I am really really 'wowed' by this treatment then I think its safe to say I will not be repurchasing. The first of the items different from my surveys.
Nail Lacquer by OPI from the Brazil Collection - not much to say about this. I'm not a polish fan but this is a lovely shade of red with a bit of a sparkle so I may just wear this! retails at £11.95 for a set of 4.
Naobay Body Radiance Lotion is a product I wasn't expecting from looking at my surveys. I'm so happy to have received it as it looks and smells like a lovely lotion and its natural and organic. A good sized 30ml sample given worth £1.68. Full size is £14 for 250ml.
Caudalie Vinoperfect SPF15 Day Perfecting Fluid. My surveys showed I was getting the Divine Oil but I'm happy either way. I'm just glad I got a chance to sample one of the Caudalie products. This is a very generous sample of 10ml. Full size is 40ml and costs £38 making this sample worth £9.50!
As a little extra this month all subscribers got this cute Brazil-Inspired Keyring.
My box comes to a total of £54! An excellent month for Birchbox! Was worth the wait in the end :)
