Build Your Own Beauty Box at Selfridges

Finally a beauty box that puts you in control!

I may have ditched my Birchbox subscription a few months back, but you’ve got to hand it to them, they really pulled it out of the bag, er box with this idea!

For the most part I really enjoyed my Birchbox subscription, but after a couple of years beauty box boredom set in and I was all sampled out… mainly with hair oils and Balance Me products. That’s why “Build Your Own” is such a good idea! No nasty surprises… just SIX products that you choose, all packaged up and beautifully presented in a limited edition Selfridges box for £15!

The pop up pick n’ mix style shop is only available at Selfridges London. Rock up, pick up a box and fill it with six luxury samples… and when I say luxury, we’re talking Elemis, Bumble & Bumble, Origins, Stila, Nuxe, Benefit and many more....

Benefit Air Patrol BB Eyelid Primer
YESSS! Really wanted to try this. It’s a great way to test the water without shelling out £21.50. It’s basically a BB cream for your eye lids – smooths the skin, evens skin tones, hydrates and locks onto shadow. I think I will be buying this!

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
When I spotted the UK’s no1 best-selling face mask I couldn’t get it in my box quick enough. I used it at the weekend – it smells divine and my skin looked and felt more nourished and plumped from just one use.

Eyeko Fat Eyestick in Gilt
These things are fab! This is my second Eyeko Fatty, my first came via the aforementioned Birchbox subscription. Gilt is a gorgeous golden khaki shade - very on trend and super quick!

Bumble & Bumble Don't Blow It
I don’t know about you, but if I don’t dry my hair with a hairdryer, it goes flat as a pancake! This first-of-its kind crème is designed to add some much needed bounce and texture to air-dried locks… here’s hoping!

Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream
This smells dreamy! I couldn’t resist. I’ve had a few Rituals products now and they always deliver.

This Works Pillow Spray +
Who actually uses Pillow Spray? I DO!

Be quick, the pop-up is only available in store until 28th September. Can’t make it to London? Don’t worry. There’s an exclusive-to-Selfridges Birchbox available online here. Although you can’t choose your samples, you at least know exactly what you’re getting before you get it. 

Have you built yours? 



  1. This is honestly such a good idea. I'm gutted it'll be gone by the end of the week. I'm not in London until November. I also use a pillow spray. The boots own brand one is great and so much cheaper than the This works one!

  5. Love this idea! I felt the same about my Birchbox subscription x

  6. I like the idea as I gave up my subscription a while ago as it was the least useful box for me, but one thing that caught my attention was the price. As far as I can remember the box is around 15 with postage included so why is it still 15 if you go and you pick it up yourself? For the simple fact that you get to choose the samples?

  7. Oh wow £15 is pretty good for all that choice! I am actually near London so I've very tempted to run down tomorrow and do this whilst I still can haha xx

  8. Are you searching for a new job or a career change? If you are, do you regularly find yourself examining the latest fashion and beauty trends? Do you regularly find yourself giving beauty advice, even unasked advice, to those that you know? If you do, have you ever thought about working as beauty consultant? If you haven't, you may want to do so, as a beauty advisor can be a nice, fun, and relatively easy way to make money. anti-wrinkle beauty products
