What is Birchbox?
Allow me to introduce you to Birchbox and my March 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.
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 – 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 March Birchbox review.
March Birchbox Review
This month, Birchbox is championing the importance of me time and the art of self-care. Yes, it’s time to look after number one (that’s you!). After all, mindfulness is all about being fully in the moment, pulling free from pressure to always push harder and strive for perfection. Step one? Take the time to sit back and relax with five beauty treats picked to help you look and, more importantly, feel great…
What is inside my March Birchbox?
Peel Off Mask RRP £14
Stressed out skin? When pores are clogged, blemishes are appearing, and your complexion is generally looking tired, this charcoal mask will draw out toxins and purify. First cleanse with a warm cloth to open up your pores, then apply an even layer and wait for 15-20 minutes. Now for the fun bit – slowly peel off in an upward direction to reveal a happy, healthy complexion. (Psst… sensitive skin? Always patch test first!)
BADgal BANG! Volumising Mascara RRP £21.50
Prepare for lash lift off with this new, thickening mascara. Its gravity-defying formula contains aero-particles, commonly found in astronauts’ spacesuits, to deliver volume with lightweight lift in every swipe. The special slimpact! brush is moulded to catch every single lash, from corner to corner – just wiggle it from roots to tips for an impactful look that will last up to 36 hours.
SUPERMUD Clearing Mask Treatment RRP £42.00
As the name suggests, this GLAMGLOW formula really is a super mud with a super combo of activated charcoal and blend of 6 acids. Apply a thin layer to clean skin, leave for up to 20 minutes while it unclogs your pores, then rinse to reveal seemingly poreless and radiant-looking skin. For those with sensitive skin, you can use solely on the t-zone or dot it on as a spot treatment too!
Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray RRP £36.00
Hairstyling doesn’t have to take endless time and multiple products. In fact, you just need a couple of minutes and this spritz! The 2in-1 formula works on wet or dry hair to create the natural, unfussy appearance of beach waves – without the crispy effects of salt water. Just give the can a good shake, spray it on and work through with your fingers for a tousled finish.
Reve de Miel Body Scrub RRP £19.50
A great body scrub is a real pamper night must-have. This one uses sugar crystals and rice grains to gently exfoliate dull skin and reveal your natural radiance. Plus, if you’re already a fan of the iconic NUXE fragrance then you’re in for a treat – this scrub will leave you smelling sweet and feeling incredible. Not only that but honey and precious oils work to deeply hydrate and create a gorgeous glow.
