The August Birchbox came in a little bag and not a box which pleases me a lot!
I’ve been getting the little birchbox for a while now. Although it’s my first subsciption box thingy so I have nothing to compare it to, I blooming love it. It’s like a mini Christmas every time I receive it, and who doesn’t love getting presents?!
The August Birchbox couldn’t have come at a better time with better stuff to be honest. We’re off for a mini break in a lodge next week which means travel minis! Perfect timing for the little stuff in the August Birchbox to turn up!
The fact that it also has a mini wash bag included is definitely an added bonus that I will taking full advantage of!
What is in the August Birchbox
MARCELLE WATERPROOF EYELINER | RRP £10.50
This was the August Birchbox choice. If you didn’t know every month there will be a product you get to chose this or that for. Or you can do what I did this month and click ‘Suprise Me’. The August Birchbox gave you the choice of the colour ‘Expresso’ or ‘Mulberry’.
I didn’t mind which colour I got this month but I actually received ‘Expresso’ which is a deep brown colour. I actually think with the smoothy, creamy texture it is that it would probably make a pretty good eyebrow pencil too.
VOYA SILKY BY NATURE SHAMPOO | RRP £18
Like I said, perfect timing for travel minis! The August Birchbox manual says that it contains ‘an array or organic oils, plus purifying seaweed and strenghtening vitamin B5’.
It doesn’t have the nicest smell. It’s got one of those scents that smell like you’re doing a good thing to your hair/skin; not the sweet scent I’d usually go for. I’ll be giving this a go when I take it to the lodge with me next week!
AMIE MORNING CLEAR PURIFYING FACIAL WASH | RRP £4.95
Yet again another mini I’ll be packing away for our mini break. I’ve had a major breakout at the moment so I’m hoping this will come to the rescue and be my saviour.
The little leaflet actually says ‘Like the feeling of cleansing with soap and water, but hate the drying effects?’ This is the cleanser for you’. So, I’m hoping they’re throwing it backs to basics and not trying to entice me into a regime with 3 million products that I need to use to have perfect skin. And that I will be able to just use this one!
Inside the August Birchbox
ANAMATOMICALS THE BUFF STUFF CITROS BODY SCRUB | RRP £3.99
Are you getting my jist of ‘perfect timing for all these minis’ yet? Chris and I actually spotted manatomicals 194 weeks ago in our local Tesco.
We loved the packaging and like I’ve said before; if something is aesthetically pleasing I’m 100% sold. This claims to eliminate skin impurities and slough away dead cells to leave skin soft and silky’. I’ll have to get back to you on this one!
THE AUGUST BIRCHBOX FULL SIZE | MERCI HANDY ANTIBAC HAND CLEANSING GEL | RRP £2.90
There were 3 different scents in this product but I was lucky enough to receive one of my favourite smells, vanilla. Black Vanilla to be precise, however I wouldn’t say it’s very vanilla-ey.
I’ll have to wait to test it a bit before I call judgement. But a Anti Bac gel is always handy, and we always need them in Disneyland so it’s one to add to the collection nonetheless.
AUGUST BIRCHBOX – A LITTLE EXTRA | NUDE PERFECT CLEANSE OMEGA CLEANSING JELLY | RRP £32
This is a little sample of something like I’ve never tried before. It claims to ‘transform from an airy gel into a soft milk on contact with water’.
I’m a bit unsure of this one as it does sound a little strange. I will give it a go anyway and I’ll be sure to let you know what I think of it when I do.
If you have please let me know what they’re like!
