Hello, I had seen things about Birchbox for ages around my family and friends, and they had given me little samples from there little boxes, but i never really thought about getting it for myself, until in October when i loved the design on the box so i decided to give it ago! i always love testing new things, so with this box i was able to do that! the subscription-only cost £12 a month but that's included postage fee, but you get the box every month until you opt-out which you can do at any time with no fee, they take the money on the 1st of every month and then you get the box on the 5th - 7th of every month. and in the box, you will receive makeup products, skincare hair care and so much more good things for you little me time.
all you have to do once you have joined them is complete a beauty profile, which helps them decide on the products which best suits your complexion, your hair type and also your makeup levels. you also get to a product that is a bonus item in which you get to choose between two of the same thing but in different colors or types...
|This is the box design for January.|
|Melusine jade roller|
in this month's box there was a full-size Melusine jade roller in FULL SIZE and its beautiful! birch box says it Tighten, define, soothe and de-puff your skin. once i have used it for a month or so i will be doing a little review, i have already been taking before photos to see if anything has changed in the months i have been using it! (RRP £15.50)
also in the box, there was a sample of a beautiful Waterproof Mascara, birch box said that this mascara is a sports mascara for when you're on the go, i have used it for the last couple of days and i love the gel-like texture, it's not flakey and it doesn't smudge at all! its made my eyelashes that little bit longer to the point it looks very natural, this was only a sample size! but i think i will be buying the full size once this has gone. (RRP £19.00)
the next thing in the box was this extremely lovely! body lotion that smells so lovely! i could literally eat it! haha don't worry i won't actually eat it! so once i opened this product i tested it on my arms and it made my arms feel super soft and glowy! so birch box said. it nourishes the skin and hydrating at the same time its made with 85% natural ingredients. the good thing is it can also be recycled. £13.95
the 5'd product i received I'm not really 100% sure of, it doesn't feel very nice on the skin and it has such a horrible heat once its on the skin, it just doesn't feel right, BUT once you have washed a scrubbed it of it leaves your skin feeling super nice and refreshed so i don't think a little bit of burning is that much of a problem, birch box says that it is Packed with dermatologically-tested ingredients to reduce oil and banish blemishes, and removes dirt and oil. what else who you want? £8.29
Last but nt least this little glow milk actually smells like a strawberry milkshake! don't know if its meant to actually smell like that or my nose is playing silly with me lol, but the glow is so pretty i just want to bath in it! once it on it is so soft and kinda disappears after a couple of hours which is quite sad because when you fist but it on it so pretty, it like a gold sandy desert could with an extream light of golden flecks that gives you such a beautiful glow. birch box says that the hydrating formula leaves behind a dreamy dewy, skin-plumping glow. i was a little sad at how tiny the sample is, so you have to use it lightly till you can get another one as its £8.29 and out of stock quite a lot
