Beauty: Birchbox No.1

So last week I received my very first Birchbox (Yay). I'm not particularly educated when it comes to Make Up & Beauty, so decided to set up a monthly subscription to Birchbox in order to try new products & discover new brands.

Safe to say I have never bought from (or even heard of) any of the brands received in this months package... I will be testing these out thoroughly and will post my review in the next week or so. Fingers crossed!

Propercorn - Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun Dried Tomatoes £0.90
I love that Birchbox send out bags of popcorn! Such a fun idea - I'm sure these will be the first product of the bunch I'll be trying out. Nom!

The Balm Cosmetics - How 'Bout Them Apples (£26.00 for palette)
Already I know I'm going to love this product - It smells absolutely divine & is a multifunctional product for lips & cheeks. I'll probably get quite a lot of use from this product - The colour is absolutely lovely!

Color Club - Gold Struck (£15.00 for set of 4)
What a stunning pearly colour! It looks super shiny & I will be applying this ready for the weekend :-) Hopefully it won't chip!

One Love Organics - Skin Savior (£30.00)
Again another gorgeous smelling product, it's super citrusy! It does however look a little bit  oily so I;m not sure how this will react with my skin. I'll definitely be giving it a bash though! 

Laura Mercier - Soufle Body Creme (£27.00)
I'm a huge fan & firm believer in moisturising so this is a lovely addition, I of course will be comparing it to my No.7 godsend of a moisturising cream! So good luck Laura Mercier!

Beauty Protector - Protect & Detangle (£15.00)
I've been really good recently trying to protect my hair & keep it looking thick and healthy - I will be adding this product into my routine and am full of high hopes!

As far as my first Birchbox goes I'm pretty impressed - Just for the smell alone! Everything smells absolutely divine! I can't wait to start using these products.

I'd love to hear from anyone who's used any of these products :-)

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.



  1. Ive genuinely never tried Birchbox might give them a go though! The Laura Mercier body souffle is amazing, you'll love it!

    1. Cool :-) Can't believe how edible & yummy the 'How bout them apples' smells! X

  3. This looks like a great birchbox. I'm looking to subscribe to them soon but wasn't sure until I found this post.
