As you all may have known by now, I love subscription boxes and adore Birchbox – they are the best box that I have bought so far and I am usually pleased with everything that I get in the boxes. I was thrilled with April’s Birchbox (see my April review here) which had a cute theme in honour of Kate and Will’s baby that was due – we now know it’s a girl! Welcome to the world, Princess Charlotte! 🙂 The products were amazing and this month’s box lived up to April’s one.
As you can see in the images, this month’s packaging was very creative and allowed the owner to become the designer and decorate their box however they wished! You can find plenty of people’s boxes on Instagram and Twitter coloured in all sorts of different colours and mediums. I haven’t touched mine – I’ve only tweaked it a bit but for me, that is enough. I adore the design of the box too much to tamper with it.
So what’s inside the box?
Let’s take a look:
- Number 4 Lumiere D’hiver hair masque
- Birchbox coloured pencils pack
- WAH London nail polish
- Parlor moisturising sea salt spray
- Caudalie tinted moisturiser
- Absolution youth-activator face mask
- Jelly Pong Pong duo bronzer
… a lot of fabulous goodies! 🙂
My absolutely favourite product from the whole box would have to be the Jelly Pong Pong Bronzer Duo. I have always been searching high-and-low for a great bronzer and this has to be it! The pink and tan colours are perfect with my olive skin tone. The pink is more muted and slightly mauve whilst the tan colour is indeed of a brown shade and not an orange shade which together, works fabulously on my skin. I am very happy with it and will consider buying the full sized product when my current Sleek highlighting kit which contains a bronzer runs out.
I also need to give the Caudalie tinted moisturiser a try as it’s received really positive reviews on the website but as it’s a 01 Light shade I am not 100% convinced that it’s going to be a good match for my summer-tanned face… we’ll have to see. I can always use it then apply my foundation on top for a better colour match and more coverage.
