Woohoo, my August beauty box from Birchbox arrived today! I’m so happy as it usually seems like I’m one of the last to get theirs and this month I think I might be one of the first!
Summer Nights is the theme of the August beauty box from Birchbox and it’s a special collaboration with InStyle magazine; here’s what I got in mine:
♥ Bluemandarines SkinLine Energetic Cellular Cream A light moisturising cream packed with peptides to brighten, refresh and protect the skin. Yes please, this is right up my street. I got a 10ml tube.
♥ Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Wash I love Molton Brown, they’re a British brand with fabulously luxurious products. This smells heavenly. I got a 30ml bottle.
♥ LAQA & Co. Lil’ Lip Pencil in Ring of Fire I saw a spoiler ages ago showing what was going to be in the box and I was really excited about this chunky lip pencil. Luckily I have received the colour most people were lusting after, a gorgeous bright red! I got a 2g pencil.
♥ Gerda Spillmann Hydro Pearls This is the second Gerda Spillman product I’ve had from Birchbox; the last was a foundation that was wayyyy too dark. At least I’ll be able to use this one! It’s a 10ml tube.
♥ Philip Kingsley Elasticizer I LOVE this stuff! I’ve mentioned it a couple of times here and here. My hair is in need of a good conditioning treatment so I’ll be using this tomorrow! I got a 40ml tube.
♥ Inner Me Lustrous Locks Vitamin Complex This is a ‘lifestyle extra’ and it’s funny that they should include this as I have just cancelled my monthly supply of postnatal vitamins and was wondering what I should take from now on instead. I got 28 tablets which is two weeks’ worth.
♥ Birchbox Gel Eye Mask This is a ‘beauty extra’ and again it’s something I have been in need of. I have a baby. Puffy eyes galore. Enough said!
There is also a special subscription offer for InStyle magazine – 12 issues for £11. Head to www.instyle.co.uk/birchbox to find out more.
So that’s everything I got, 7 products in total which is loads and I think this might be one of my favourite boxes so far! It’s a really good mix of products, a real head-to-toe box.
