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.
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?
Just like with the sleep box I blogged about, I was so excited when I saw this was waiting for me!
What lush things did I get in it this time? Here’s a list:
And a pic of all the lovely goodies that the list talks about:
And a close up of the Glam 3-in-1 Lipsuite in Rose Pink:
It claims to be a lip balm, colour and gloss all-in-one. So can’t wait to try that out.
I am particularly excited to try the Calendula Cream as I suffer from eczema. So, with it being all natural ingredients, I really hope it works. Plus, it smells divine!
I love that Souksouk introduces me to brands I’ve never even heard of before.
I open it and this is what I first see:
My gosh I was so excited that these lovely goodies were in my possession! So far I have tried the Aloe Vera and Ylang Ylang bubble bath/shower gel. It smells divine! After my bath (which sadly was luke warm due to the boiler konking out but hey ho) I tried out the Sleep Tight Body Cream. There is a definite lavender-ness about it and there’s another yummy herbal-y smell to it too…lush! Before I go to bed tonight I’m gonna pop some sleep balm on my temples and sweet dreams roller ball on my wrists. Ooh and those sleep patches on my feet. Fingers crossed that I shall have the best night sleep EVER tonight! I had gastritis last week and have been suffering from insomnia since last Thursday so all being well this will help! Wish me luck!
Whilst searching for a beauty box (makeup/beauty case, whatever you wanna call it) on the ‘net due to wanting all my makeup to be in one place and more organised, I surprisingly came across a site called Souksouk.
It’s a fab little site that sends you a “little green beauty box” each month filled with beautiful “green” goodies which are organic and -yay!- animal cruelty free!
You can buy a one off box or you can buy a quarterly, six monthly or yearly subscription. You can also see what was sent in previous boxes so that you have an idea of the type of things you’ll get. At the moment they’re doing a limited edition “Beauty Sleep Box” which I have personally ordered as I do have trouble sleeping. I can’t wait to try it out!
If you like your green, organic and animal friendly beauty and makeup products then this site is definitely worth checking out!
