The Birchbox Edition: April 16 

IMG_1252

Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking! Okay, I had to sneak that quote in there but seriously when Rifle Paper Co give you florals you take them! This is probably the most beautiful Birchbox I have received so far, appropriately named ‘Blooming Marvellous’ April’s issue teamed up with Rifle Paper Co for a super cute collab.

As like most monthly subscriptions there were a few things that I really loved and a few ‘meh’ products. Birchbox announced that they were partnering up with Benefit again so I received another mascara, although I haven’t actually tried Bad Gal Lash yet I’m just growing a little tiresome of mini mascara samples, but hey that’s just my personal take on it. I was so hoping for Dew The Hoola, did anyone get to try this?

There was one sample that arrived just in the nick of time for me. Three weeks into my new job and driving home down the motorway past midnight is becoming a familiar feeling but believe me, getting to grips with everything that goes on at QVC is super exciting. Tinted Wonder eye cream from Balance Me is the first thing I reach for in the mornings now. It’s ever so forgiving on my tired lookin’ peepers. It brightens and conceals dark circles, as well as keeping the eye area hydrated and behind the scenes it’s taking care of those damn anti-ageing woes.

Although I’m not a huge fan of shampoo and conditioner samples the ones from Beaver Professional came in handy for a recent overnight work trip to Wales. Packed with nourishing ingredients such as avocado oil and aloe vera the formula really revives damaged strands. Although I’m very loyal to the Aussie crew I have to say that the results are impressive!

The box itself is too cute to stash away somewhere, it’ll be taking up a spot on my desk, and be sure to check out my Instagram for the lovely little notepads that came along with it.

How lovely of you to drop by!
