Happy Friday muffins, what a beautiful day out there albeit I’m merely admiring the sun through the window of my office. I’m just catching up after my trip to London with Benefit and wanted to share some beauty buzz with you all. This will be exciting news for those of you who are a fan of subscription boxes. Birchbox the UK’s Number 1 beauty box with over 1 million subscribers worldwide is now offering shipping to Ireland. If you’ve never heard of the brand or service, they offer a monthly delivery of gorgeous goodies including five luxurious products from make up and skincare to fragrance, body and hair care. Who doesn’t love a surprise postal delivery every few weeks?
If you’re into hair and make up, love looking after your skin, travel a lot and regularly use minis, love trying and testing new items but don’t want to splurge on items you’re unsure of, this is ideal. I received the April box at the start of this month and I have to say it exceeded my expectations; everything from the pretty packaging to the collaboration element, tips, tricks, tutorials and high end products is every girls dream delivery. If you’re a fan of big name brands like Stila, Rituals, Laura Mercier, Benefit and Philip Kinglsey, then this is well worth subscribing to. This month Birchbox have teamed up with Rifle Paper Co, the American cult stationery and lifestyle brand, to create two lovely box designs. All subscribers have the chance to pick which design they would like to receive and also receive a Benefit treat.
My box contained a mini Dew the Hoola which I tried yesterday for the first time on our London trip. This can be mixed with your foundation for a dewy glow or applied on top as a liquid bronzer to contour and sculpt the skin, I also received a Kueshi Foot Care Cream which smells divine and is a real treat for feet. I’ve been using this at night time with thick socks and it’s really improved my skin’s texture. The Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner which I’ve heard rave reviews about is soft yet pigmented and very long lasting. My holy grail body oil NUXE Huile Prodigieuse is a must have for adding a sexy sheen to the legs and décolleté. This has been a long time love of mine, always reminds me of holidays and is a brilliant multi use product. The box also contains the Parlor Detangling Leave In Conditioner which is coming with me to Ibiza to condition my hair post sun, sea and sand. This is said to work on hair texture and manageability and makes detangling a doddle.
