What’s in the box? Birchbox July 2014




I’m not exactly qualified to say this (on account of this being only my second Birchbox) but this is the best box ever!
THE THEME
Sun, Sea & Sand
Remember when summer holidays used to stretch on for-ev-er?! We're bringing a bit of that sun and fun back with your July Birchbox, celebrating glistening sea views and those beautiful sandy beaches that evoke the warmest season of the year.


THE PRODUCTS


Benefit POREfessional 7.5ml sample | £24.50/22ml
The UK's no.1 bestselling primer needs no introduction! I was thrilled to see this in the box. A good travel size primer always comes in handy.
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream 7 ml sample | £20/15ML
This three in one multi-tasking formula softens, smooths and brightens. I’m all about the eye cream these days. I lurve Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair and from my first little test this seems to work similarly.
Laqa & Co Sheer Lip Lube In Bees Knees | £14/3.7G
This is AM.A.ZING! I want the full size and I want it now! Coral is just my thing so I’m thrilled I received this colour and not the purple shade. It’s smooth and cream and oh so wonderful and the pale coral is a real skin brightener.



Weleda Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash | £7.95/200ml
I love Weleda. I discovered their body oils a few years ago and the I’m a big fan of the brand, I  haven’t tried this body wash yet, but something tells me I’ll like it.
Whish Three Whishes Lavender Body Butter £14.50
A decadent organic body butter with lavender, aloe, shea butter and raspberry butter to conquer dryness and generally smell lush!
THE LITTLE EXTRA
Vita Coco Lemonade | £2.29
The taste of the summer! Coconut water is a natural, delicious and fat free way to stay refreshed. I’ve seen the instagram pics. I know they're the “in thing” but I’ve never tried one and now I’m super excited to. It’s in the fridge chillin' as I type.


THE VERDICT
For me, it’s the best beauty subscription box I’ve received. I subscribed to Glossybox for years and can’t recall receiving a box where I squeals with excitement. It’s not that it’s the box with the most monetary value, or the most full size products. It’s that I love EVERY single product in the box, I’ll use each product to the end and I already want to buy the full size Lip Lube. Find out how to subscribe or buy one off Birchboxes here.

  2. I'm so unsure about these boxes! I subscribed to Glossy Box a few years ago and was so disappointed with the contents on a regular basis that I decided to cancel my subscription! This boxes looks like something I could get on board with though!

    1. I'm with you Hayley. I subscribed to Glossybox for years and box after box was so disappointed. I've been keeping an eye on Birchbox for a while. The quality seems much better and more consistent than Glossy. I subscribed last month - this is my second and so far so good x
