I have to hold my hands up and say I was a little disappointed with last month’s Birchbox but when the April box landed on my doormat and I opened it up my faith was restored!
For April Birchbox have teamed up with British fashion brand Boden to deliver a beautiful box packed with hardworking beauty products including two full sizes! Read on to find out what I received.
First up is a full size Manna Kadar Cosmetics High Definition Powder (RRP £27), a must-have finishing powder which creates a matte, flawless makeup finish. Applied over makeup the powder leaves a velvet feel, and completely colourless matte finish. Manna Kadar is not a makeup brand I have heard of but it hails from the USA.
My second full size product is a Nip + Fab Colour Correcting Concealer (RRP £8.95). I got the purple shade which is designed to neutralise yellow toned skin. My complexion can look quite sallow so this is the perfect choice for me and I’m interested to see how it performs.
The third product in my box is a sample of Polaar Ice Pure Gentle Scrub (full size RRP £23.50), a facial polish containing skin softening Arctic Cotton which helps moisturise whilst the scrub sloughs away dead skin cells, revealing a brighter, smoother complexion.
Next is a 50ml travel sized Dry Texturizing Spray from Oribe (full size RRP £20). This is part dry shampoo, part texturiser, so it refreshes the hair whilst giving it body and bounce. Perfect for big hair, don’t care looks.
My final product is a 30ml sample of Baija Paris Creme Moana body lotion (full size RRP £15.90). A mix of shea butter, cupuaca butter and jojoba wax infuse the skin with moisture and nourishment, softening and smoothing the skin and leaving it delicately fragranced.
This is a great box and I love the selection of products which cover practically every facet of beauty, from hair and body, to skincare and makeup! For £12.95 it’s fantastic value too.
If you are tempted to treat yourself to a Birchbox you can sign up for £12.95 per month and if you use my referral link and enter code BB1774582 you will get your first box half price!
