Happy 5th Birthday Birchbox!

June 2018 marks the fifth birthday of subscription box service, Birchbox in the UK. Birchbox are celebrating in style, and, each subscriber has received SIX products, in a beautiful floral designed tin. 

The first product is the Ella Eden Compact Eyeshadow in the shade 'Julia'. This is a neutral coloured eyeshadow, which will be perfect for a subtle eye look, or, as a highlighter for the brow bone. If you use a wet brush the eyeshadow looks much bolder on the eyes.

The next product I received this month is the ARROW BOOST Colour Enhancing Lip Balm in the shade 'Berry Busy'. This is a lip balm which enhances the natural colour of your lips and adjusts to its pH levels. I've actually received one of these lip balms in a previous Birchbox I received last year, however, it was a different shade. It's amazing what effect it has on the lips! It's also worth pointing out that this product is vegan, paraben- , cruelty-, and gluten-free!

Another product that I received in my June Birchbox is the Number 4 Jour d'automne Smoothing Balm. This is a balm which reduces frizz -perfect for those hot, sticky days where hair gets unruly with the humid air! This product also restores softness, and protects against heat damage.

The Lord & Berry Strobing Highlighter Pencil also featured in my box. I've never used a highlighter pencil before, and my initial concern was if it was going to feel scratchy on my face, but I'll give it a go, and see how I get on!

The last beauty product I received was the GLAMGLOW SUPERCLEANSE. I've tried the GLAMGLOW masks before, and they've worked wonders on my skin, so I'm looking forward to trying their cleanser, and seeing what effect that has on my skin. This cleanser has a blend of three charcoals, and is a cream-to-foam cleanser.

Last but not least, Birchbox have included an extra little treat in celebration of their fifth birthday. There are three Whittard of Chelsea tea bags in the flavours; Earl Grey, Mango & Bergamot, and Lemon & Ginger. I'm looking forward to putting the kettle on, putting my feet up, and enjoying these sometime!

Happy Birthday Birchbox!
