C: after seeing lots of advertisements from Birchbox, promising an amazing box with lots of make up samples, I decided to order Junes box. We also got to pick the patterned box and shoe bag this month which was a nice concept, and I enjoyed the floral print so decided to go for it…
As you can see the box itself is lovely, and I will be keeping it for storing bits and bobs in on my dressing table. However personally I never used shoe bags so the additional extra, whilst pretty is pretty pointless to me!
Penhaligon’s Iris Prima Perfume – this actually smells rather nice… but considering its £85 a bottle, I won’t be buying it! I also don’t really like getting perfume samples in a beauty box as you can pick them up for free basically anywhere!
Cowshed Body Lotion in Gorgeous Cow – this was one of the products I was hoping to get after seeing other peoples boxes, as I love rose/floral scented products and I haven’t tried many items from Cowshed. It is also a generously sized sample and I can’t wait to get using it!
STY London Temporary Tattoos – I am not sure where to start with this one. I genuinely don’t understand why anyone would want these. I know they are currently fashionable, but I have real tattoos so I very much doubt I will ever use these!
Premae Mild Dermabrasion Face & Body Scrub – another product I wasn’t particularly excited to see. I find any scrub thats apparently suitable for face and body suspicious. The skin on our face is very different to the skin on the rest of our bodies, so I don’t understand how it will work. I will however, be giving this a go and will review it for you all I am sure!
Hip Ultra Shine Shampoo – I don’t really like receiving shampoo samples without the matching conditioner, as I don’t feel like you get a true feel for the products effectiveness. But atleast I will actually get some use out of this product and can use it!
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Poppy – as the only make up sample in the whole box, I found this very disapointing. Although it is a product/brand I haven’t used before and therefore am interested in trying, this sample is absolutely tiny! So tiny it was underneath the shoe bag and I didn’t actually notice it was in there! I also cannot open it… hopefully one day I will manage to do so and I will review it for you!
So overall, a pretty disappointing Birchbox experience considering it was my first resubscription in over 6 months! What did you guys think to the box? I have already cancelled my subscription for next month, I will wait and see what other peoples boxes are like before I consider ordering one! #twolittleowls
