Birchbox – August Beauty Box

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 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.

  2. I like the range of products in your Birchbox - the lip pencil looks like a pretty shade. I love these crayon style lip products.
    The vitamins sound interesting!

  3. What a fantastic box! The wee lip crayon is so cute. I'd love to try the vitamins too. Xx

  4. Let us know how the vitamins are, I wouldn't mind trying something like that for me hair if they work! Sarah xx

    1. I'm not sure if 2 weeks will be enough to see a difference but I hope so! xx

  5. That's an interesting box ! The gel eye mask is such a great idea ! I also have puffy eyes.

    1. The mask is now being stored in my fridge ;) xx

  6. Got the same as you except an Argan Oil instead of Elasticizer, and a bag of bloody popcorn instead of the supplements?! Haha x

  7. I've never got Birchbox but I have to say the items in it look so much better than most other beauty boxes. Lovely review.

    Great blog too! Following on GFC xx
