What’s not to LOVE about BIRCHBOX!

Ever feel like you’re grabbing the same old brands over and over again because you either haven’t got time to shop around or simply don’t want to waste your money on full size products only to find out you don’t like them? Well this was me at the beginning of the year so I decided to try Birchbox and 3 months in I am still loving it!

My experience so far… 

February box; I’ve been using the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse since it arrived, its the perfect skin treatment.  I use a few drops on any rough patches, recently this has been great for the back of my hands and elbows.  Also the Spectrum Eye Contour Brush, its a great addition to my brush collection, I use this to apply colour all over my lid as well as intensifying the colour in my crease.

March’s Box; I’ve used the Rituals shower gel and whilst I wouldn’t buy this in full size its not because I didn’t like it, I personally don’t spend a great deal on body wash (I prefer to splash out on other items).  I have however loved trying the Batiste 2 in 1 dry shampoo & conditioner for the first time and have brought this in the full size.  Lastly the Benefit They’re Real Double Lip in Criminally Coral shade came as a FULL SIZE product too which was a lovely bonus.  Great lipstick, long lasting and a slender size which makes it easy to carry around.


April’s box allowed me to discover this beautiful new body cream.  I’d never heard of Baija before however I loved it so much I just had to buy more! The body lotion features in my previous blog beauty must haves 2017 part 1.  Packed with coconut oil, shea butter, cupuaçu, and jojoba wax – this lotion is great for nourishing dry skin and leaving you smelling exotic.

May’s Box; I only received this box a few days ago but I’m already looking forward to trying these out.  I added the rose gold coloured bracelet for just £3 extra (its worth £15) and its fits perfect.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my low down of Birchbox and hope I’ve inspired you to try something new, who know what you might discover and love #trysomethingnew
