Happy St Patrick's Day!!!
I just had to get that in first!!
So Today's Bloggy is a review of the March Birchbox (uk)
So This Month's Box was a Lulu Guinness Colab and the packaging was covered in a wee Lulu Guinness sleeve which was really cute. I have, like last month, already used the sturdy box it comes in for storage and will be putting the little drawstring bag to good use too, what should I do with it???
I googled to find actual prices for full sized items as opposed to just going by the card.
Onto what magic lay inside....
This thing scared the bejeezus out of me when I first looked at it.. I was thinking what even is this. It looked like something you'd use to sterilise a baby's dummy. But it is actually a massage cup to help fight cellulite. You use it with wet soapy skin or body oil and 'pinch and roll'
I haven't used it yet but it seems cool.
Christopher Wickes English Laundry Number 7 Perfume £47
This was a little sample. This stuff smells blooming gorgeous, it has such a calming effect on me. It is a sweet, subtle scent with a tiny bit of a floral undertone. I really want the full size but I'm finding it hard to locate.
Benefit Stay don't stray- £20.50
I was so excited about this. It's an eyeshadow and concealer primer. It went on quite matte and had a little coverage. It definitely helped to keep my eyeshadow on, I need to use it a wee bit more to see if it would be worth the £20.50. It was a decent sized sampple and will be good for a few tries.
Dr Brandt Pore no more pore Refiner- £35
This is a pore refiner which is used either under or on top of foundation to help minimise pores. I haven't tried it out yet but I do have some enlarged pores so I'm hoping that it might be my new fave and have to be added to my ever growing birthday wish list. It was a pretty decent sized sample too.
Aroma Works Body Oil- £32.50
This is similar to the body oil I got in last month's box. I don;t tend to use body oils much but I did use this after a shower last night and it seems to have made a difference and softened my skin. The scent is a citrus-woody scent which isn't my favourite but it is quite calming and nice for night time.
And last but not least my lifestyle extra.
It was a really cute Lulu Guinness Black and white striped Rock. I'm not the greatest rock lover but it is cute and has Birchbox and a heart down the middle.
If you want to see the Rock and the rest of the products in better detail head on over to my youtube- CLICK HERE and it will take you there.
I thought there were a good selection of products in this box. Brands I hadn't heard of and brands I had. The sample sizes were fairly good and it was decent value for money.
