I think this month’s Birchbox may be the prettiest yet! Partnering with Rifle Paper Company was always going to produce something lovely, but I adore the beautiful floral design on this box and I even used some of my Birchbox points to get two notebooks in equally pretty prints. I just can’t resist attractive stationary!
I was hoping the inside of the box would be as good…
First up is this foot cream by Kueshi. This is a new brand to me but it smells good and I do use foot cream most nights.
Next, a cult product in the form of a mini bottle of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse. This is meant to be good stuff, adding hydration and a glow to face, body and hair – I cannot wait to try this as a full-size bottle is quite pricy.
I have received a couple Parlor products via Birchbox and this Detangling Leave-in Conditioner sounds lovely. I use leave-in conditioners regularly but they can weigh my curls down so a spray version sounds perfect!
Next, a black eyeliner from Cynthia Rowley. This is a creamy formula that gives a true black line and it has excellent staying power. I’m a liquid eyeliner gal so I may pass this one onto my Mum.
Finally, Dew the Hoola from Benefit. I admit I had no idea what this was when I opened the box but have since discovered it is the liquid version of the Hoola bronzer. I’m not sure about this product. It doesn’t have a shimmer and is creamy to apply but I just don’t find it really does anything. It is meant to leave a sun-kissed glow but it doesn’t really show up on my pale skin. I may use this instead of foundation on holiday or when I have a bit more colour to me, but at the moment, it won’t make my daily make-up bag.
Quite an interesting Birchbox this month – I don’t love all the items but then again, one of the reasons I subscribe to this is because it makes me try things I wouldn’t normally buy and for every item I don’t like, I find a couple of real gems.
I’m signing off for a few days now as I am off to France for the long weekend on one of my best friend’s hen weekends – expect lots of wine and cheese photos if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, then you should!) x
