DAYTRIPPING THIS MONTHS THEME
This month’s products come in a limited edition Birchbox bag, perfect to store your beauty essentials whether travelling or not. It comes in Purple and Minty Green or Purple and Yellow (mine came in Green). The theme is based on Brighton Beach and day trips to our own locations in the UK hence the theme ‘Daytripping’.
I really like that this month included a make-up bag rather than a box, the boxes are pretty but a bag is more useful and you can never have too many right? It’s a good size so you can fit quite a few items inside and the pastel colours are so pretty.
MEECHNMIA– #021 – FULL SIZE RRP £12.99
There are so many choices of Brow Liners now but finding a good one is really hard. I tend to use Eyebrow Pomade rather than a pencil as I find it gives my brows a more natural look, however out of all the pencils I have at home this one is by far the most natural looking and is the perfect colour for my brows. The formula is cruelty-free and so anyone who looks out for these kind of products this is one to add to your list.
COW SHED – COW PAT HAND CREAM – FULL SIZE – RRP £8
Despite the name of this product sounding quite unappealing the smell of the hand cream is amazing it is packed with essential oils of coriander and grapefruit which leaves you with a fruity sweet smelling cream. It is very moisturising and will be perfect for the Winter months (when they get here) but for now lets enjoy the Summer!
AMIKA – PERK UP DRY SHAMPOO – TRAVEL SIZE – FULL SIZE RRP £20
Just looking at the bottle of this product gives a promise of something great, the bright colours and design of the bottle are just so enticing. The packaging states that using this dry shampoo will help to ‘cleanse, refresh and revive’ hair of all hair types, I can’t say this works for all hair types but I used it a few days ago when my hair wasn’t clean but it wasn’t really dirty, as I was going to the gym after work so didn’t see any point in washing it in the morning and then several hours later. I can happily say it does the job and stopped my hair from getting too oily throughout the day whilst smelling pleasant, however I don’t think I would buy it at that price, I may stick to my talc when this bottle runs out.
ARROW – ENHANCE WATERPROOF EYELINER IN BRIGHT NOW – (BIRCHBOX EXCLUSIVE) -FULL SIZE RRP £12
This eye-liner at first glance looks a little Pink however when applied to the eye gives a subtle brightening effect, it adds just the right amount of colour to brighten your look. It is waterproof which is great for this type of product because I don’t know about you but I hate it when my eye waters and I have eye-liner running down my face by the end of the day. I’ve also used this as hi-lighter under my brows to help shape and define them and it works well for that too and for an added bonus it’s vegan, paraben and cruelty-free!
SCRUB LOVE – COFFEE BODY SCRUB – TRAVEL SIZE – FULL SIZE RRP £11.95
I’ve heard many mixed opinions about coffee scrubs and was very curious about whether I would like them. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought, it was a little messy but smells amazing with 100% natural ingredients to help buff away dead skin cells and left my skin feeling smooth and smelling so so good! This is my favourite product from Birchbox this month and a tiny bit goes so far so I think this will last me a long time.
I really like that there was a bag rather than a box this month as I love it when companies change things up a little. I’m really happy that I purchased this box as it has allowed me to try out brands and products that I wouldn’t usually buy myself without having to purchase the full sized product to decide if I like it or not. If you think about it the cost of both full sized products it is more than the whole box and P&P itself so providing you are getting to try new products and liking the majority of them I think it is a really good deal as you may find new beauty must have .
If you want to purchase this box the link for Birchbox is below but hurry as we are nearing the end of June!
