A: the best day of the month has finally arrived! Our Birchboxes were delivered today, Chloe is going to giver a quick review of hers tomorrow – so yours truly (the better half of our blog duo obviously) is going to review today.
Isn’t it just beautiful? The theme this month is Global Strikers, and the lovely people at Birchbox have taken their inspiration from the World Cup, with brands from all over the world.
So here’s what I received:
The Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, a cult French moisturiser. The full price version of this is £12.99, but the sample I received is pretty small so I’m hoping it goes far.
Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask, a deeply nourishing mask that protects and softens. Silk + Honey actually offer ‘diy’ kits for £55. Birchbox have put this combination together, and I’m expecting big things because of the hefty price tag.
OPI Nail Lacquer, the Brazilian Collection. OPI are always on the ball for introducing new collections, and this one is inspired by Brazil’s tropical rain forests and sandy beaches – just the description makes me want to jump on a plane! I couldn’t find the name of the colour anywhere, but I received the purpley/gold. The full size version of this is £11.95.
Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick in Rouge Groseille, a sheer, glossy lipstick infused with moisturising cherry oil. I had to include a close up photograph of this because, well new lipsticks just deserve that don’t they?! This is a vibrant red, perfect to add to my collection and the scent is amazing, plus it’s full size! The introductory price is £9.90 – not bad for high end.
Naobay Body Radiance Lotion, a lemony fresh organic lotion with shea butter. I’ve had products in my previous Birchbox’s from Naobay and I’ve always been really happy with them, so I’m looking forward to using this. A sample size again, the full size version is £14.
Lifestyle Extra – a Brazilian inspired keyring. This is a miniature version of a flip flop, and like any other girl – I love miniature versions of anything. I’m not that excited about the football to be honest, it just goes over my head, but this keyring is cute!
