July’s Birchbox has arrived earlier than expected! The theme this month is Sun, Sea & Sand, so I’m expecting loads of summery goodies! Continue reading
So this is the collection! It’s not really what I was expecting – I think it would make a good Christmas box as it’s got the glittery nail polish, the bright lip pencil, the wintery-skin protector, the eye cream… Keep scrolling for more info.
Benefit – The Porefessional – £24.50
This isn’t a new item for me. I’ve tried the Benefit Porefssional before and thought it was alright. It’s a lightweight primer which minimises the look of pores and other imperfections. It feels exceptionally smooth and silky, spreads well and covers slightly too. It’s a little bit pricey so it’s nice getting a top up sample in this month’s Birchbox.
Filosofille – 4-sided Nail Buffer
Erm, I guess this will be useful. Thanks Birchbox?!
Balance Me – Wonder Eye Cream – £20
I like that Balance Me is a brand full of natural ingredients, but I think most of their products smell a bit whiffy. This isn’t an exception, and it’s not the worse thing about this eye cream. The fact the tube is only half full seems a bit mean. Hopefully there’s enough in there to see what it does to the areas around my eyes.
Whish – Three Whishes Lavendar Body Butter – £14.50
Another half empty tube… I doubt there will be enough in the tube to cover one arm, let alone more than that. Anyway, it smells bad so it’s probably just as well.
Laqa & Co – Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Menatour – £14
Aww mannn, there were two shades of this lip pencil, a subtle pinky orange and this bright purple. If anyone is up for a swap, please do let me know!
PS, smells minty. Interesting!
Models Own – Nail Polish in Vampire – £5
I think I’m a little old for this nail polish. It’s probably great for a Christmas party, but a little bit too bright for everyday wear. I do like Models Own nail polishes though.
