What is Birchbox?
Allow me to introduce you to Birchbox and my August’s Birchbox Review. Now I know some of you are probably now sitting there thinking to yourself, “what the hell is Birchbox?” well I’m going to tell you. For the cost of £12.95 a month I receive another fabulous reusable little box full of beauty goodies.
Furthermore, I have to say at this point the boxes are very well made and furthermore they act like a little drawer. In addition, these boxes are very sturdy and very useful – subsequently, I use mine for all sorts of things. The design is different every month too.
Now inside the box, you will find a selection of good size samples of beauty products, sometimes a full-size one and sometimes a free gift, for example, a makeup brush etc. Now we all love free things don’t we – well I know I do.
And finally, in addition, to the products you receive a guide as to what the products are and consequently other details about them. So sit back, relax and read my August Birchbox review.

What Is Inside My May Birchbox?
Dirty Little Secret
Eye Shadow Crayon in Gold Plated or Fresh RRP £10.50
Who said that perfectly applied eyeshadow requires an arsenal of tools? Not me? With this creamy crayon, your fingertips will do the job just fine. Scribble it directly onto your eyelids and blend in for an effortless eye look. It works as a base for powder shadows, a standalone wash of colour or a radiant highlighter.
Melting Lip Powder in Red Cherry RRP £15
A truly innovative product, this magic formula transforms from pigmented powder to long-wearing tint on application. Using the applicator, blend it directly onto your lips (as you would a lip gloss) and watch as it meshes with your skin for a smudge-proof, matte pop of colour. Bonus: it works on cheeks too!
Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask RRP £14.90
I love it when a product does all the hard work for us, and even more so if it works overnight! Apply a thin layer of this pomegranate-infused treatment onto clean skin before bed and let it absorb while you catch some Zs. The antioxidants will rejuvenate tired skin so you’ll wake to a glow, hydrated complexion.
Purity 3-in-1 cleanser RRP £19
If you love products that make your daily routine easier then you’ss adore this easy-breezy cleanser. The beloved formula removes makeup, cleanses, tones and lightly hydrates skin in one step. Really, what more could you ask for? Massage a coin-sized dollop into damp skin, rinse away and say hello to a clean, healthy complexion.
Happy Budha Foaming Shower Gel RRP £8.50
Showers can be just as relaxing as a soak in the tub – you just need the right products! This luxurious gel is infused with sweet orange and cedar to rejuvenate your skin and brighten your mind. Transforming into a thick lathering foam on contact with water, it provides a skin-softening clean with hydration that lasts.
September’s Birchbox Sneaky Peek
Next month I get to pick a benefit Box O-Powder in either California or Gold Rush.
Looking forward to September’s box now; I do love receiving these boxes. These also make a fantastic present for a friend or loved one. If you are stuck for something to give which girl doesn’t like receiving free make-up and beauty treatments.
So until next time have yourself a fab week.
