This month’s Birchbox is keen! Hardly seems like two minutes since January’s landed on the door mat... not that I’m complaining. So it’s February, and Birchbox are in the mood for luuurve with the Birchbox Loves box.
Wild About Beauty Golden Skin Glow | Full Size £21A bronze tinted gel/moisturiser. I had a swatch as soon as I got my hands on this... don’t be scared, it may look like Ronseal but the semi sheer coverage means you won’t look like Donatella. Instead it adds a natural bronzed glow with a tiny hint of shimmer.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum 10ml | Full Size £45/30mlWhen it comes to serums Caudalie is king. I’ve tried the Vinosource S.O.S Thirst-Quenching Serum so I’ve got high hopes for this radiance-boosting, oil free formula.
KMS Tame Frizz Soothing Lotion £15.50I wince whenever I see hair masks, hair smoothers, de-frizzers. If you could veto one product from your beauty box, this would be it. I have fine hair with greasy roots! Understandably I steer clear of anything like this. Still, if this is your thing, the lightweight leave-in lotion detangles and tames frizz.
T London Darjeeling Bath & Shower Wash – Travel Size 50ml | from £6.50A new one on me, but it does smell remarkably like chamomile tea and travel size shower gels always come in handy.
theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen | £10Add a pop of long-lasting colour to lips and cheeks with this gel stain... Looks remarkably similar to Benetint.
Lifestyle Extra – The Chia Co Oats + Chia pack – RRP £4.95 (pack of 5)I do applaud Birchbox for the quirky lifestyle extras. I’ve had everything from green tea to lipstick shaped pens – and this one, I can vouch for, is de.lish.ious. I will be purchasing.
A decent mix of products this month. Very happy with the serum and the skin glow lotion. I’m slightly disappointed that they didn’t make more of the Valentine’s theme, but that’s me being soppy.
