This month Birchbox has dispensed with boxes and has instead sent out clear plastic bags in a selection of colours.
To be honest they look cheap. Mine is pink (not my favourite colour) and I don’t see it getting used at all.
However the items inside make up for it somewhat.
Benefit Dream Screen SPF 45 – sample sized. Benefit is one of my favourite cosmetic companies, I love their quirky packaging and product names. This sunscreen is formulated to absorb quickly, leaving your skin hydrated and protected.
Balance Me Congested Skin Serum – a targeted spot shrinker and break out preventer. It contains chamomile, lavender and aloe.
Unani Aloe Vera gel – useful as after sun or just to soothe irritated skin (from bites or the heat).
Pop Beauty eye shadow trio in Peach Parfait – summer smoky eyes, here we come. Instead of dark greys and blacks, it’s peaches and creams.
Jelly Pong Pong – Glow Getter Luminizer Gel – a full size facial illuminator for a subtle glow – perfect for fresh summer skin.
Pure Vida lace headband in Aqua – a bit like pop bands, this is a stretchy lacy band, to be honest I only use these to keep my hair off my face when applying a face mask.
A nice selection of summer themed products in a slightly disappointing package.
