June is well and truly here and this month Birchbox are helping their subscribers to be beach ready with a host of hardworking beauty products, all packaged in a cute Birchbox branded Birchbag.
First up is the Scrub Love Coffee Body Scrub, an exfoliating and moisturing treat which is perfect for prepping the skin so it’s ready for the beach. I love coffee scrubs, despite them being a little messy to use, so I was very happy to see this product included. This one is Coconut Mango and promises a deeply moisturising, skin conditioning treat for normal to dry skin.
Next up is a sample of Vita Liberata Body Blur which is designed to perfect any skin imperfections and lend your skin a glow lasting up the 24hours. This product is perfect if you want a tan without the commitment as it will wash off at the end of the day.
Third I have a 15ml of Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum. This serum, designed for younger skin, features Willowherb to restore the glow, Chestnut Seed Extract to refine texture and eliminate dullness, and Algae which helps reduce oil production and minimize the appearence of pores.
Moving on is of of two make-up products this month, the Arrow Enhance Waterproof Eyeliner. Sorry Birchbox but I don’t really get this product. The shade is pretty much skin toned so I’m not really sure why I would wear it. I guess it’s intended to be applied on the waterline to brighten it, but I’ve never been keen on applying eyeliner on my waterline so it’s a miss from me.
Finally I have MeechNMia Brow Liner in shade #22 which is the perfect size for me. Its a full-sized product and I’m sure will get used, even if it’s not the most exciting of make-up products.
For me this month’s Birchbox is a mixed bag (no pun intended)! The products are in the main good, however there is not really anything to get my pulse racing and I found the products to be a little uninspiring. That said its still a great way of trying new beauty products and getting a treat delivered to your door each month!
