I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying the snow if you've got any where you are!
I've been a bit of bad blogger and not blogged at all this week, so to make up for it I have decided to put up 2 posts today. My first post is the Versatile Blogger Award. If you're interested in having a read of 7 random facts about me and seeing who I nominated please click here.
My second post of the day is going to be on my first ever Birchbox!
For those of you who are not aware, Birchbox is a beauty box subscription service. They were previously known as Joliebox.
I was very excited to receive my first box yesterday, especially as I have been completely skint this month and not able to treat myself to anything. I think that may be the case for a lot of us who got paid just before Christmas and have to wait till the last working day in January till we get paid again...
Here are all the beauty products that were in my first Birchbox:
KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Dry (30ml)
This is one of those products you shake up before you use. It's supposed to detangle and soften hair whilst speeding up the drying time I only got this yesterday so I haven't had a chance to try it yet. .
Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment (2.2g)
This is a very moisturising lip treatment with a hint of colour. I tried it today and it definitely softened my lips! I've gotten quite a lot of lip products from Joliebox and now my first Birchbox has got another lip balm type poduct in it though. I don't mind as most lip treatments I've received have been really good. However I do fancy a bit of a change in my next box so hopefully no more lip products!
WEI White Lotus Moisture Rich Eye Blend (12ml)
This is a tiny sample of a very expensive eye cream. I'm looking forward to using it but I do wish the sample had been a little bit bigger!
Taaj Paris Hand Cream (30ml)
This is a lovely French hand cream. I may end up giving this away though as I already got quite a few Bath and Body Works hand creams for Christmas. I like receiving French skincare and body products though as the quality is always very good!
I also received a Teapigs Chamomile tea bag (not pictured).
As with Joliebox, Birchbox also comes with a monthly magazine.
I'm quite happy with this box, but as I have been subscribed to beauty boxes for quite some time I am starting to feel like the products are getting a little bit repetitive. I am going to see what the next 2 boxes are like before I decide whether to carry on with my subscription. As Birchbox is an American company, I would love to see brands like Wet and Wild or Sonya Kashuk which you cannot get in the UK!
If you are interested in subscribing to Birchbox, you can click here. Prices are £10.00 per month plus £2.95 for postage.
What do you think? Are you subscribed to any Beauty Boxes? And if you received a Birchbox let me know if you got the same products as me or something different!
Till next time!
