After loving rejoining Birchbox, I wanted to share another little Birchbox review with you! And after the gorgeous weather we were treated to in May, this Birchbox is aptly named Palm Leaves & Warm Breeze – which just made me dream of being on a warm beach holiday, with some brilliant summery products to suit.
A little background into Birchbox if you’re unfamiliar with it – Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription box, where 5 sample size products ranging from make up to hair care to little surprise gifts, arrive on your doorstep, lovingly packaged in beautifully designed boxes. It’s £10 a month for the subscription, with a 10% discount to buy the full sized products if you do love them!
So, lets get into May’s Box …
1) Doucce Luscious Lip Stain in Amber Rose.
2) Greenfrog Botanic Geranium & Peppermint Botanical Bodywash
3) Benefit Hoola Bronzer (oh yessss)
4) Spectrum Collections A05 Precision Blush Brush
5) Luseta Beauty Keratin Smooth Conditioner.
Included in this box are a lot of brands I hadn’t heard of previously which I love; there’s nothing better than discovering a new brand and falling in love with them.
One of which is definitely the Doucce Lip Stain – now if even my partner, J, notices a new lip stick and compliments me on it then I immediately know it’s a winner haha. I love a lip stain that doesn’t make you look like a total clown haha and this one applies just enough vibrant colour to complete a fresh faced summer make up look, which made it all the way through a dinner date also so its a definite fave for me.
The second product is a really fresh scented bodywash by Greenfrog Botanic. If you prefer a sweeter floral scent then this isn’t exactly for you but personally I love a strong botanical scent and this one just reminds me of that gorgeous fresh spa smell. I haven’t used a great deal because I fell in love with the scent so I’m packing it into my hospital toiletries bag but I’m really looking forward to being able to use it again.
Thirdly, I’m not even going to review haha because it’s no secret my love for the Hoola bronzer and as this is the second month I’ve received a mini sample, I’m just so happy to have a good stock stashed away in my dressing table haha.
Spectrum Brushes are a brand we’ve all heard of in the beauty community, however I’ve never actually purchased any of their brushes so I loved receiving this product to give me an insight into the brand. And I must be honest, I adore this brush, to the point where I’m actually not as impressed with my Real Technique brushes anymore because this brush just really stands out. I’ve been using it to apply my bronzer rather than blush but I love that it applies just enough product, without having to keep going over and over your make up again. It feels like a really luxurious brush when it actually RRP’s at £6.99, so it’s an affordable yet trustworthy brand to start purchasing from. Also, it’s just a really pretty brush haha.
Lastly, is a keratin conditioner from a brand I’ve not heard of before, Luseta, but I will definitely be repurchasing this conditioner which left my hair incredibly silky without feeling totally weighed down (which is a god send for anyone with fine hair). Again, it’s been packed away into my hospital bag haha at this rate they’ll think I’m moving in!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little Birchbox review – I’ve been really loving writing a monthly subscription review on my blog and look forward to Birchbox’s upcoming months!
