A Feature: Birchbox #1


My first ever Birchbox Package landed on my door step this morning. After being slightly disappointed with Glossybox over the last few months so I thought I would give another subscription box a go. I havent cancelled Glossybox yet as I want to see what February's Valentines Day Special brings.

So first thing to comment on. I love the little bag it all comes in, will come in real handy I'm sure.

First thing that caught my eye is the Gilchrist & Soames The London Collection Shower Gel (£13.75). This stuff smells amazing, with red tea (what's that?), grape seed and milk thistle (???) it's supposed to hydrate and refresh skin. 

Next is the Nail Rock Nail Glitter (£6.99), I have seen lots of Nail Rock things around but never actually tried any. I love the red polish that comes in this set and the little pot of glitter is really handy to have and I already have an idea how I can use this - think red nails with accent nail a different colour (white) a heart shape with the glitter over top - another case of easier said than done (just).

I have had something like this before in a Glossybox but this is the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil (£16). This is said to nourish hair and battles UV Rays, heat and breakage. Apply on damp or dry ends. Good for all hair types. 

Being a skincare junkie, I may have squealed when I saw this next one in here. The Urbanveda Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish (£8.99) isn't a brand I have ever heard of before which is the brilliant thing about these subscription boxes. Packed with super fruits this gentle exfoliator gives a radiant and youthful complexion... Strong statements. Looking forward to trying this.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner (£12). I have been trying out some liquid liners for an upcoming post so I am really glad this came. It is a felt tip eyeliner with a reasonably sized tip that looks really easy to control.

Something which Glossybox doesn't do, is the Lifestyle Extra included in the Birchbox, which this months was a little taster of Green & Blacks Dark 70% Chocolate. Not something I will be eating but it's a nice extra touch so thanks Birchbox.

Looking forward to trying these products and I hope that birchbox will make up for my subscription box disappointment.

Have you tried any of these?
