Whilst I still can't believe it's February already, I'm not complaining when another Birchbox comes to my door! This month I received 2 exciting new hair care products, 2 skincare goodies and a makeup gem. The beauty of subscribing to any beauty box service is getting the chance to try all new products each month, but it also helps you adjust to the seasonal product transition, which in this case is winter to spring. I couldn't love Birchbox more, especially this month. What have you received this month? Which subscription service are you signed up for?
I think I own about three Micellar waters at the moment - Vichy, Bioderma and of course Garnier's - but they're so helpful to me that I can never have enough. Last minute skincare routines, quick makeup removal, extra cleanses and even refreshing your skin during a no makeup day are some of the many uses I get out of them. This month I received the cutest little bottle of Absolution's L'Eau Soir et Matin Micellar Water which is said to purify, soften and tone the skin perfectly. Unlike most micellar's it smells so nice and soothing; it's made up of 99% natural products of which 60% are organic. I'm going to be traveling a lot next month, so this little bottle will definitely help me out. (Full price: £25)
Polàar's Night cream was a pleasant surprise to see sitting in my box; I've had the opportunity to try this cream before and I've loved the feel and richness of it. They promise a lot for just a simple cream and indeed believe your skin will get smoother and smoother use after use. If your skin needs a destress, revitalisation or regeneration you'll find this cream is perfect for you. My skin always glows when I use this cream, and its not too cakey and thick whilst still holding in all the moisture your skin needs. (Full price: £35)
Haircare also means a great deal to me and its not often I come across a shampoo like this one. Rich's Miracle Renew CC Shampoo smells like something you'd get from the strawberry range at the body shop and looks like silver space jelly, but most importantly it promises probably the widest range of benefits I've ever read. Boasting a unique, multi benefit system, this shampoo can 'cleanse, repair, strengthen, moisturise, volumise, smooth, add shine and body'. Sound too good to be true? I definitely think it'll be unlike anything I've tried before, but it's certainly set the bar pretty high. (Full price: £10)
Speaking of seasonal transitions, this month Birchbox have provided Number 4's Jour D'Automme Thermal Styling Spay for styling and setting wet or dry hair with ease. It can be really difficult to keep your curls in or keep your hair looking effortlessly smooth and straight, hours after styling without several touch ups and extra sprays during the day. This high performance hair care product is supposed to eliminate this difficulty and deliver long lasting styled hair thanks to an even spray all over the head at any part of the styling stage. This may be exactly what I'm looking for! (Full price: £20)
To add to my growing matte lipstick collection, Birchbox sneaked in a little vibrant lipstick by the brand LOC in the shade Uncorked. I'd describe uncorked as a red/oxblood colour and once completely dry, it takes on a firm, powerful matte finish. As well as the gorgeous colour, I love the feel and design of the product with its seal tight cap and its appropriate size makes it so easy for on the go makeup. LOC is a Birchbox own brand and have a vast range of vibrant shades to choose from that will all stay on yet remain flexible and nourishing for the lips. A gorgeous new makeup bag addition.
