Good morning my little sugar nuggets;
After a weekend in London, I'm feeling positively splendid about life. The beauty boxes have arrived and this months are pretty darn good! Here goes;
So this months Birchbox is all about Love Style, inspired by London Fashion Week and I'm also thinking a slight touch of Valentines? Let's have a look at what I recieved;
Beauty Protector - Protect & Oil | £16
Exclusive launch! This nourishing hair oil battles UV rays, heat and breakage. Work 1-3 drops into damp hair, or to dry ends. Perfect for all hair types.
This is the second Beauty Protector product I have tried from Birch and I've loved both of them! I struggle with oily hair so I wasn't sure whether this would be okay for me at first, but I applied a few drops, literally 2-3 to the ends of my hair, (it smells amazing BTW) and then dried my hair. Now my ends are super soft! And feel really healthy! So I'll be using this a couple of times a week I think!
Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner | £12
A foolproof liquid liner to help you create Alexa Chung-style feline flicks in a flash. The precision pen tip ensures a tidy line.
There was a tip card with this item, that shows you how to do the 'perfect flick' which I think looks a bit pants. But this couldn't have come at a better time. I've been desperate for a liquid liner and this looks as though it's going to be pretty good! I can't wait to try this out.
Urbanveda - Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish | £8.99
A gentle exfoliator packed with superfruits for a radiant, youthful complexion. Massage into damp, cleansed skin 2-3 times a week.
This is a very rough exfoliator! And not to be used everyday! However, it smells nice and it left my skin feeling smooth as a baby's bottom! I've only used it once, but I will be using it 2-3 times a week as it says and definitely moisturising afterwards!
Gilchrist & Soames - The London Collection Shower Gel | £13.75
A paraben-free formula with red tea, grape seed and milk thistle to refresh and hydrate skin;. Lather up in a hot shower and inhale the crisp, invigorating scent.
I actually really love the smell of this. I've used this once and it filled the bathroom with a beautiful smell that lasted ages afterwards! I love how much it lathers up and it made my skin feel so smooth! The only thing I don't like about this product is the packaging. I think it looks like the cheapo stuff you get when you stay in a hotel?!
Leighton Denny - Nail Colour | £11
High-performance polishes in our favourite stylish shades. Apply two even layers of colour and finish with top coat.
Everyone should know by now that I'm a nail varnish addict, so my eyes lit right up when I opened my box to this. This would look beautiful over a black base coat and I can't wait to try it out! I've never heard of this brand before but I've read some good reviews!
Green & Black's - Dark 70% Chocolate | £2.29
The highest quality organic cocoa beans, sugar and vanilla are sourced to create this delicious treat. On the sofa, at your desk, or on the move; nipple wherever, whenever!
No, ew. I hate dark chocolate with a passion. I also don't really eat any other chocolate than Cadburys, Galaxy or Lindt. This will be going to Bear.
Overall, I'm really impressed with this months box. As usual Birchbox hasn't failed to impress. Even though I don't like the chocolate, I love that they almost always put in a little extra something, usually edible, which I'm sure everyone loves!
What did you guys get this month?
