Birch Box 'Red Carpet Ready'

Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I received my May Birch Box earlier today, I have been really impressed with Birch Boxes (apart from the last one) but overall it is a fantastic subscription beauty box. 

1. Mini OPI Nail Polish: I am in love with this mini - it is a tiny bottle! The shade is gorgeous too, I can't find the shade name on the bottle or on the info sheet but I think it is 'cajun shrimp'. It applies so well! The application is so smooth and nearly fully opaque - I can get away with one coat but it is better with two. I had to try this as soon as I got it. 

2. Makebelieve Enhance Luminize Skin Highlighter: Such a pretty shade, I love the packaging and it is a cream highlighter - I do prefer powder highlighters though. I like the shade although it is described as a pink highlighter and in my opinion it isn't. The highlighter is too shimmery for my taste. 

3. Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator: This is a  really expensive brand and it is a really big sample (30ml). Love the smell and packaging of this product. I haven't tried it yet but hopefully it wont irritate my skin. 

4. Kusmi Detox Mate, Green Tea and Lemon Grass Tea: I don't drink tea at all - I am definitely a coffee kind of girl so I will not be using this so I will give it to family/friends. 

5. B/Attitude Body Souffle: I like body souffles and whipped body butters they are lighter and quicker to absorb that thicker creams. Although I really don't like the scent of this product - it smells very musky. I don't like this so I am going to give it to my mum who really likes the scent. 

6. Doctor Duve Anti-Aging & Firming Eye Cream: Again another brand I haven't heard of (like the previous two products). There are two sachets of this sample and I might use it but my eyes are really sensitive so I may end up give these away. 

Overall, a good box with the OPI and Elemental Herbology products but the rest are average or are not great for me personally.

  3. So sad my subscription ended last month so I didn't get this box :( It looks like it had some fab products in it, I'll have to think about renewing soon! xx

  4. Lovely stuff the name of the opi nail varnish sounds yummy x

  5. I have 23 hours to decide if I want to accept my birchbox subscription. I can't decide!! Do you absolutelyyyyy love getting them? Like is it completely worth it?

    1. I think out of the beauty boxes I have tried, birch box is definitely the best :) Although obviously there is the risk of product you don't like. Hope this helps :)x

  6. So many good things! Think the highlighter looks quite pretty, could maybe use it on the brow bone if it's no good for cheekbones! xxoxoxo

  7. Oh wow this is a pretty impressive box isn't it? I love that opi shade, really 60's glamour! Love the Elemental sample as well xxx

  17. I used to be subscribed to birchbox when it first started out as Carmine and then changed to Joliebox and then when they changed again and I got the option to keep my subscription I cancelled as I was so fed up of them keep changing and signed to Glossybox instead! but I'm really tempted to sign back up! I keep seeing them on peoples blogs and get a tad jealous!
