Birchbox (The Subscription Box Series)

Updated: Jun 18, 2023

Birchbox unboxed

I've seen a lot of advertising for Birchbox, I was running low on some cosmetic products so I thought I'd try it out for myself. Plus, as you might know by now if you've been reading this blog, I like a good subscription box; it's a bit of excitement and a lot of the time you get great products for a low price.

This box gives you 5 beauty treats every month, delivered to your doorstep. In the UK it's £12.95 including delivery and I personally think it's worth it. You get high quality products which you might not necessarily want to spend a lot of money on just so you can try them. This way you might find something you've been looking for at a more than reasonable price.

What you see here is the May Box, I'm still waiting on the June one, but I can't blame them for being a bit slower than usual with all the Coronavirus madness going on. When the June one arrives I'll add another unboxing, you can be sure of that.

I love the box itself and I will definitely be reusing it to keep small cosmetics in and I definitely like the products. Here's what my May box contained:

  • Manna Kadar - Lash Blast Bloom Mascara - Got to choose between pink and blue packaging

  • Balance Me - PHa Clarifying Mist - Love it!

  • Caudalie - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum - Makes your skin feel fresh

  • Rituals - The Ritual of Karma Body Cream - Haven't tried it yet

  • Luxliss - Argan and Marula Conditioner - Smells lovely

Out of all of them 'Balance Me' PHA Clarifying Mist is definitely a winner for me. It's antibacterial and calms down blemishes so for my type of skin it's great - I'm definitely getting this one as soon as it runs out. I'll be honest with you, before I got this in the Box, I didn't know it existed, but I'm happy I found it.

June Update!

The June box finally arrived and I'm more than pleased with it.

This one had:

  • Patchology - Rejuvenating Eye Patches

  • Winky Lux - Peeper Perfect Concealer (lovely texture, perfect colour for me)

  • Beauty Protector - Protect and Detangle (Smells absolutely divine)

  • Real Chemistry - Luminous 3-minute peel (works wonders, makes the skin feel incredibly smooth)
