Aprils Birchbox: Chloe’s Box

C: both myself and Annie received our Birchboxes on Saturday, and although we usually do a joint review we both actually received different items this month so we are going to do our own individual posts. So here’s my Birchbox:

The theme this month is “Good Enough to Eat” so all products contain ingredients that “would fit just as nicely in your kitchen as they would in your bathroom”. I really like this idea, and it is always good to use natural products where possible.

The first item I noticed in my box is this massive 250ml bottle of Tommyguns Pomegranate and Orange Flower Shampoo which is full size and retails at £5.50. It is always nice to receive a full size item in a beauty box and I am so excited to try this, it smells AMAZING.

Next up is THEBALM Cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples Cheek & Lip Cream in the colour “Pie”. The packaging of this is gorgeous and I haven’t used many cream blushes so I am looking forward to trying this. I am not sure how much each individual colour in the palette weighs, so I am value-ing this sample at around £2.

I then received the Aquamarine Azulino Color Club Gala’s Gem’s Collection nail varnish which is a gorgeous pearlescent pale blue. I love nail varnish, so a new addition to my collection is always welcome. The set of 4 costs £15 so this is worth around £3.75.

Snuggled in the corner of my box was the One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm which is described as a multi-tasking balm for cleansing, moisturising and removing make up. Can’t wait to try this bad boy, I love trying out new skincare brands. The full size version of this is £30 for 39ml so this is worth £11.54!

Last but not least is the Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Kohl-Liner in Black. You can never have too many eye liners, and although quite small this would be perfect for slipping in my hand bag so I am happy to receive it. Full size is £10 for 4g so this is worth about £1.50

I also received a bag of Propercorn as my Life Style Extra which was a lovely addition to my already amazing box which would cost 90p! Bargain! I have already eaten this… it took a lot of self restraint to not eat it before I took my photos!

Overall I really liked this months Birchbox, it contained a good mix of make up and skin care and included several brands that I had never heard of before. The items in my box were also worth a total of approximately £25, which makes it definitely worth the £12.95 (including postage and packaging) that I paid for it!

If you would like to sign up to Birchbox please use this link and we will both receive £5 worth of points to spend on the Birchbox website! Please also keep an Annie out for Annie’s post on her Birchbox, we will also post about individual products in more detail once we have had time to test them properly! #twolittleowlsblog

April Wish Lists!

A & C: we can’t believe it is April already, only seems like yesterday that we were wrapping Christmas presents and drinking too much egg nog! So as spring keeps creeping closer we need (!) lots of new things to update our wardrobes for the summer months! So here are what we have both been lusting after!

Chloe’s wish list:

20140401-155442.jpg

1. Minkpink Moroccan Tile Dress (£55 from Urban Outfitters). I love the print of this dress, I think it would be perfect for keeping cool on a hot day or with tights and boots in the evening.

2. Glow Highlighter in Polish (£9 from Topshop). I haven’t tried any cream highlighters before, and I think the pale colour of this beauty from Topshop would be the perfect place to start.

3. Real Techniques Sam’s Pick’s Collection (£29.99 from Feel Unique). I really need some new make up brushes (I really don’t need any..but still) and I have been eyeing these up for ages after seeing lots of good reviews.

4. Frock and Frill Deco Embellished Dress (£145 from Asos). Annie and I are going to a ball in June and I have been searching for the perfect dress for ages and I think I might have found it – opinions please!!

Annie’s wish list:

annies final april

1. Kate Moss for Rimmel Lasting Finish (£5.49 Feel Unique) Yes, I know … it’s another lipstick! I seriously think I have an obssession, but I do love this Kate Moss nude colour. So I can’t really so no.

2. Lush Enzymion (£6.35 for 100g) This is a ‘balance restoring’ moisturiser, and it smells amazing!

3. Hearts and Bows Jumper from Ark Clothing (£22.99) Although it is getting a little warmer and sunnier, I still need a new jumper to keep me snug – this one is perfect for Spring with its cute lace trim, it will look good layered over a dress or just with skinnies and pumps.

4. Retro Tortoise Shell Earrings (£8.00 from River Island) I love big earrings, the bigger the better for me. This retro style pair are perfect for wearing in the day time or dressing up for a night out, and they’re a bargain!

What are you April must haves? #twolittleowls
