The Beauty Edition: Birchbox July 15 


Summer is in full swing and that’s certainly showing in this months Birchbox although i say box, the samples were delivered in the most adorable neon splash-proof pouch. Six lovely sun friendly products to try out:

  1. Benefit Dream Screen
  2. Pop Beauty Eye Shadow Pallet
  3. Soigne Nail Lacquer in Pistache
  4. Unani Aloe Vera Gel
  5. Bionike Essential Cleansing Water
  6. Spa To You Nail Buffer

This month was tailored to me perfectly, as a girl with fair hair, pale skin and prone to a freckle outburst the Benefit Dream Screen is right up my street, with SPF 45 this oil free lotion will save me from the dreaded lobster look! Then there is the soothing Aloe Vera Gel, ideal for re-hydrating tight skin after a day spent in the rays, which unusually seems to be the case right now in the UK – i’m not complaining! I’m excited to try the mini Pop Beauty palette, i won’t be using the sponge applicator as they are hideous inventions but the shades have a lovely shimmer to them, perfect for adding that summer glow to the lid. These products are everything i need to get my seasonal look on point and i can spoil myself too with a fresh lick of paint on the nails.

For me the pouch itself is the best part hands down, super spacious which is ideal for a girl with many ‘essentials’ and it comes with a handy money component so great for taking away on weekend trips or to throw in a beach bag when on holiday, it’s just a shame i don’t have one coming up to test it out… good excuse to book one, right?

How lovely of you to drop by!
