Finally I can go back to my regular blogging schedule, as all my exams are over. I know it's pretty late but I couldn't miss out on doing my monthly Birchbox Unboxing series. This week I'm really loving the contents of my May Birchbox, and having teamed up with Dream Factory this months box came with a unique design and the chance to win one of 9 generous prizes. If, like me, May wasn't the best month then any of the products will be sure to brighten your day. What did you get this month from your subscription service?
Rituals | The Ritual Of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel | Original Price: £8.50 | Having heard great things about Rituals, I was so happy to see their Foaming Shower Gel among this months selection of products. If you love foaming shower gels and creams then is definitely for you; I've never used one like this one before so hopefully it can convert me to using products like this more often. It comes in this chic, white tin bottle and comes out as a gel which then transforms into a foam, and a little goes a very long way. Key ingredients include; Organic Rice Milk and Cherry Blossom for am enriching, moisturising and skin nourishing cleanse.
Erborian Korean Skincare | Yuza Sorbet | Original Price: £39 | You may have heard a few people shouting their praises for Korean Skincare, and based in Paris and Seoul, Erborian is a luxury skincare brand worth every penny. The Yuza Sorbet sent in this months box is in the high end price bracket and offers an Anti Oxidant rich moisturising layer to the skin, and strengthens the skins barrier if applied daily. Also rich in Fatty Acids, this moisturiser is light yet nourishes the skin fully, I cannot wait to start using this.
Batiste | Dry Shampoo Plus Wild | Original Price: £2.99 | Probably the most well known Dry Shampoo on the market, and definitely the most affordable and effective, Batiste have been popular for as long as I can remember but I've never gotten around to trying their products out. Thanks to Birchbox's personalised boxes, I was sent the perfect shade for dry hair and for my thick, often frizzy locks. I'm assuming 'Wild' suggests it can tame hair like mine, and I'm excited to use it!
Modelco | More Brows | Original Price: £14.95 | As soon as I saw this product Benefit's Gimme Brow immediately sprung to mind. This is such an affordable dupe for Benefit's more expensive version, and comes in two tones for lighter and darker brows. Coming with a mascara-esque applicator, you can evenly distribute the malleable product over the brows to your desired thickness and look. It's be interesting to see how this compares to using a pencil or a pomade, as I've never used a liquid product like this before.
Aïny Skincare | Purifying Radiance Facial Scrub | Original Price: £20 | Another product in the more high end price bracket, the Organic Purifying Radiance Scrub sounds utterly delightful and something that will work wonders on many skin types. I've never heard of Aïny Skincare but they're known for their cruelty free, organic, natural products and this particular product contains 3 key ingredients; Achioté (derived from a small South American Tree known for its purifying antioxidants), Sunflower and Jojoba. This is a great alternative to using a foaming cleanser with a cleansing brush, as an all in one exfoliating gel it does the job producing soft, supple skin.
