My March Birchbox Unboxing…



I love the design for the box this month! Hmm I wonder what I could use it for…

Here’s what’s inside this month:



I’m unsure about using the Whish Body Butter as I’m not a lover of lavender but we’ll see how it goes. I might be surprised!

I can’t wait to try the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer although it will have to wait until I’ve bought a shower cap or a plastic cap of some kind to use with it.

The perfume smells lovely and the scent lasts for hours.

The little notebook will come in handy at work no doubt as I work in the office.

There’s a 20% off voucher to spend at Habitat included this month. I’ve never shopped there before so I’m gonna have a nose and see what lovely things I can buy.

I tried Benefit’s Roller Lash this morning. It does tend to clog if you’re not careful. When I got home from work, I wiped it off with a makeup wipe and reapplied. The remnants of the makeup wipe actually helped the mascara to go on better. My lashes looked lovely this time and not spidery like before! I find that a dab of moisturiser on the lashes helps when applying mascara too (which I didn’t do this morning lol). 😊

I haven’t tried the Lord & Berry eyeliner yet but shall give it a go tomorrow.

I really appreciated getting a sample of  Penny Vincenzi’s A Perfect Heritage because I love to read and discovering new books!

Has your March Birchbox arrived? What did you think to it this month?

My First Birchbox Unboxing!

I decided that seeing as my Souksouk subscription was up, I’d check out a different subscription beauty box. I chose to go with Birchbox because I’d heard so many people raving about it and that they tailor to your skin/beauty/hair needs a lot better than some others, so I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about.



My box arrived yesterday and I was so excited to see what was inside. The box has such a cute and simple look to it! I would have blogged about it yesterday but was busy getting ready to go see Queen and Adam Lambert in concert (who btw were AMAZING!!! A post about that will be up sometime soon)!



I love that it came in a little drawstring bag. I got all excited when I saw that there Benefit High Beam as I’d been really wanting to try it out.



Contents:

The Chia Co’s Oats & Chia.

Eyeko’s Fat Eye Stick in Gilt (full size).

Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.

Electric Hair’s Hydrate Shampoo.

Benefit’s High Beam.

T London’s Darjeeling Bath & Shower Wash.

So far, I’ve tried out High Beam which highlights my cheeks and brow bone lovely. I’ve also tried the Vinoperfect Serum. I found this didn’t completely sink into my skin and a layer of serum was left on the surface a bit like moisturiser does. I think I prefer using my Yours Truly Organics’ Fix Me Repair Serum as that totally sinks in and feels like there’s nothing actually on the skin.

I can’t wait to try out the rest of the products! Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you think to this month’s selection of products?
