Every month my boyfriend gets the Loot Crate , which a monthly subscription box aimed towards gamers. Last month I got a little bit jealous so I decided I was going to order something similar for myself!
After a lot of deliberation, I finally decided to invest in a beauty box… and the one I chose was the Birch Box. I had heard really good reviews about them, and from looking at past boxes I was pretty impressed.
When this little beauty popped through my letter box I was so excited to open it up and see what goodies where inside!
Birch Box teamed up with Rifle Paper Co. and created gorgeous designs for the boxes. I received the Herb Garden box.
Benefit Bad Gal Lash
I had used this before, and it is a very good mascara. Personally I prefer the They’re Real Mascara from Benefit, as I find the brush is a lot more defining, however the Bad Gal Lash Mascara brush is very thick and good for adding va va voom to your lashes! It’s a small sample size which is great for travelling.
Kueshi Foot Care Cream
Apart from the odd pedicure, foot care is usually the last thing on my list. So it’s nice to have a little reminder from Birch Box to treat my feet once in a while. I used this when I had a pamper night the other week. It deeply moisturised my skin and got rid of those pesky dry patches on your heels.
Parlol By Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner
I’ve used this several times as my hair can be quite dry. It definitely gives it a little boost and make it feel touch-ably soft and shiny.
So Susan Lip Dome
I found this very similar to the Clinique Chubby Stick. It is very moisturising and adds a subtle pop of colour!
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse
This is a multi purpose oil for hair and skin. I used it on my hands to try it out as soon as I opened the box, it has a lovely light scent and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on your skin.Unfortunately it didn’t agree with my sensitive skin 😦 so it’s going to have to stay on my hair!
Over all I was quite impressed with the April Birch Box. Maybe it was the fact it was my first box, and the novelty may ware off, but I really hope it doesn’t.
Let’s see what Birch Box has for us in store in May! X
