Beauty Box // Birchbox June 2014
June's Birchbox theme is Global Strikers inspired by the World Cup. FYI I'm supporting Netherlands as that's the team I drew for works sweepstake. Comparing my box to other peoples I think it could have been better, I really wanted to try the Beauty Blender and the solid soap/cleanser. If I'm just focusing on what I got in my own box then I'm pretty happy as I know I'll use everything in it.
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre | £12.99 // I already have the full size and really like it but this is a great way to try it out first. I will be saving this mini tube for my travel bag as it's sealed and will last a while.
Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask | £55 full DIY set// This was what I was most excited about after having a look at the spoiler and other peoples boxes. Silk + Honey is a new brand that sells all the ingredients you need to make a product but seperate so you can have the fun of mixing it all together your self. I know it probably would have been too expensive to include but I wish I could have made this hair mask myself. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to giving this a go.
OPI Nail Polish in AmazON AmazOff | £11.95 // This looks like a creme polish in the bottle but while I was googling the name of this polish I discovered that it actually has a shimmer finish. This was a little disappointing as I'm not a fan of shimmer polishes but it does look very subtle. There are a couple of other colours I would have preferred but I'm pretty happy with this green colour.
Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick in Rouge Groseille | £9.90 // As the name suggests I thought this would be a very sheer lipstick but just from looking at the lipstick in the tube I knew this would not be the case. It is sheerer than a matte bold lipstick but it's still very pigmented and can be layered to look very bold and impressive. I really like Yves Rocher lipsticks and am happy to add another one to my collection.
Naobay Body Radiance Lotion | £14 // I'm pretty sure I've tried products from Naobay before but I can't for the life of me think what it was. This is a nice standard body lotion that I will be saving for my travel bag as well. I am a bit fed up of receiving body lotions in my beauty boxes at the moment, it seems like a get a new one each month and never get round to using them as I have full size products I need to use first.
Birchbox Brazil-Inspired Keyring // A cute little bonus!
Birchbox is £10 + £2.95 postage per month.
