Hello lovlies, welcome back to my page. Allow me to introduce you to my blog review of Birchbox. I have been subscribed to Birchbox for just over a year now and absolutely love it. Now I know there will be a few of you out there thinking to yourself “what the hell is Birchbox?” well I am going to introduce you. For the cost of £12.95 a month I receive a fabulous reusable little box full of beauty goodies each box is different full of new and up and coming beauty brands and each box has a beautiful different design.
I have to say the boxes are very well made and furthermore they act like a little drawer which is fantastic whether you use it like me for little odds and ends or jewellery they are so handy in fact now my teenage daughter waits to see what box design I get and snaffles them for her makeup collection.
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!!. In addition, to the products you receive a guide as to what the products are and consequently other details about them. So grab a cuppa, sit back, relax and read all about my May Birchbox.
This month Birchbox have marked the summer ahead with a beautiful palm leaves design on the box. It totally hints that summer is on the way get those little dresses out and Bikinis on the ready summer is coming!! Birchbox says they’re here to help you breathe fresh life into your beauty routine with an energising organic shower treat and a brightening lip stain in every Birchbox this month. Say “aloha!!” To the first signs of summer!
