So I finally gave in and signed up to Birchbox, after a full year of receiving Glossybox I thought I would sink my teeth in to a different Beauty box. After shipping, both boxes work out around the same price, so I assumed they would be extremely similar.
The products all came in a cute little string pull bag, which I really loved!
Laura Mercier Facial Polish
This is a facial exfoliator, I absolutely love exfoliators, they work wonders for my skin, any kind of peel is great for me. You massage this in to damp skin, then rinse off. It has a really light fruity scent, so I am super excited to give this a try!
Bliss – Lemon and Sage Soapy Suds
This can be used in the shower or as a bubble bath, it smells really fresh and citrusy. I’m thinking of keeping this for weekends away as it is the perfect travel size
Laqa & Co Cheeky Lip Pencil – Humble Brag
As a general rule, I don’t like cheek and lip pencils but this is actually quite nice. For lips the colour is really pigmented and quite bright, it’s a little tricky to apply because of the shape of the bullet but it’s nice and matte but also feels quite moisturising. For cheeks this blends quite nicely which is normally the problem with cheek and lip pencils, it gives quite a nice pop of colour to cheeks.
John Masters Organics Citrus Neroli Detangler
This is essentially a leave in conditioner, the bottle would probably only give my hair to one treatment, it smells quite orangey which is really nice and feels really nourishing.
Benefit the POREfessional License to Blot
I have been wanting to try this because I do suffer from oily patches on my skin, this should mattify shine on your skin. It doesn’t say whether this is meant to be used before or after makeup, so I assume it is before. It feels quite chalky in the tube, but hopefully that means it works a treat. Looking forward to giving this a go!
This is a lot like a tangle teaser, I really like it and I like the shape and colour. Really useful and it makes my hair look so soft and thick after use, I absolutely love it!
Have you tried any of these products, what did you think?
