It’s that time of the month again….Birchbox time!
This months box is a collaboration between Birchbox and Habitat which to be honest is not the first collaboration you would think of and to be truthful I am not sure how the collaboration worked, except for the beautiful coloured box.
This is probably the 5th Philip Kingsley product I have received from Birchbox and as much a I do like the product, I originally signed up to this beauty box to find new brands.
This is not a product I would personally go out and buy for myself but I did find my hair looked quite shiny after use.
I don’t normally use these products as my hair is already relatively smooth and as it is quite fine I find these products do make my hair look thinner than it is.
If you do find your hair needs smoothing this is a brilliant product but for me it is not something I would use again.
I find writing about perfume quite difficult as some scents can smell different from one person to the next so I do apologise if this is not the most informative post.
I really like the smell of this perfume, it is quite a light smell that you would expect with a Eau de Parfum, it is not too strong and overpowering.
To me this perfume smells like citrus and fruit which I love, this is a scent that you can wear day or night.
This is the only Benefit mascara I have not yet tried.
I have spoken about this mascara with my best friend before as I love ‘They’re Real’ whereas she doesn’t like it and prefers Bad Gal Lash.
After trying this mascara I have found my lashes do look rather dark and long but I have found my lashes are slightly clumpier than normal.
I’m not sure if I am going to be swapping my ‘They’re Real’ for Bad Gal Lash just yet but I am going ot keep using this and see how I get on.
I am not overly pleased with this sample, not because it is not a good product but because of the actual sample, this looks like a refill and does not have a case which means it is difficult to store and use.
Although, I am disappointed with the packaging I do like the product, it does give you a subtle glow and is not too orange.
The image above does make the product look quite orangey but I find this has more of a grey undertone. I have only used this as a bronzer but I am going to try this whilst contouring to see how it turns out.
When I opened these salts I half expected them to smell like lemon but they actually smell of nothing as it is just natural salt from the dead sea!
The packaging advises this help to relieve skin disorders, stress, strains and muscle aches and it does.
I had a slight Just Dance 2015 marathon on the kinect the other day and may have pulled a muscle or five, I found after bathing with these salts my muscles felt a lot better.
I also used this as an exfoliator and my skin felt amazing afterwards, I really like this product because it has multiple uses.
P.S: The product list in my Birchbox states this product is £9.50 but I found the website, (link above), and it does state that this costs £7.50.
I have found my past few boxes a little bit hit and miss, this one is a bit of a miss for me.
I thought the collaboration with habitat would of been better, the only presence of this company that I saw was the coloured box. The products included didn’t really make me think of the brand or the collaboration at all.
I have been toying with the idea of cancelling my subscription for a couple of months but I am going to wait for next months box and the limited edition Tatler box that is on sale 2nd April.
This box is worth £60 and is selling for £25 so I am excited to get my hands on that box, keep your eyes peeled for a review!
What did you think of this months Birchbox? Are there any other beauty boxes you can recommend?
