Birchbox UK May 2014 Harpers Baazar

birchbox uk may 2014

Birchbox teamed up with Harpers Bazaar this month to bring us yet again, another outstanding box of goodies!

I love my Birchbox subscription, it’s one of the few beauty subscription boxes I’ve had were pretty much every sample sent out is used, not left rolling around a drawer. That being said I did consider canceling my subscription for a while as I’ve got so many (non-subscription) products I need to work my way through…but then Mays box dropped through the letter box and well, canceling went out the window!

We’re getting ready to shrug off those Winter layers and head outdoors. Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to get ready from top to toe! This months box sets out to get us ready for a big outdoors adventure this summer!

benefit they're real birchbox uk

Benefit They’re real mascara

Everybody loves a Benefit product in their beauty box, so this ticks a box for me. Jet-black formula that adds volume and length without clumping. Not a new one for me, I’ve had a couple of these in the past but I do really like it so it’ll get used up in no time!

soigne nail varnish birchbox uk

Soigné Nail varnish in Crème Au Beurre

Non-toxic polish that comes in a variety of classic shades. Have to say, I wasn’t expecting a varnish as the packaging was so luxe, I’ve never had a varnish come foam padded in a box before that’s for sure! The shade is a perfect nude with just a hint of shimmer.

aromatherapy associates birchbox uk

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil

An Invigorating blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry to soften the skin and uplift your mood. I won’t lie, I squeal a little every time I get something from Aromatherapy Associates, they’re one of my favourite brands I just wish they weren’t so expensive!

beauty protector shampoo conditioner birchbox uk

Beauty Protector Shampoo & Conditioner

Sulfate free formula to strengthen, nourish and protect strands. It’s also vegan friendly, enhances volume, adds shine, seals cuticles and has UV protection. The list goes on! I love how they sent both the shampoo and conditioner so you get a great idea of how they work together.

liz earle hot cloth cleanser birchbox uk

Liz Earle beauty Co. Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

After winning its 100th award, Liz Earle has been all over beauty social media of late. I’ve been wanting to try this for an age and they did send a 30ml sample and a muslin cloth so I’ll get a really good go if it! Super excited!

Easily the best collaboration box Birchbox have done since I started my subscription with them and, dare I say it, the best box yet? I fee like I say that for most of the boxes but they all seem so tailored to me personally and the types of products I like to try out an use!

What did you get in your Birchbox this month? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

  1. Such a good box! I really want to sign up and give them a try next month seeing as I've stopped getting Glossybox!

    1. I much prefer Birch Box to Glossy, pretty much every box has been perfect for me and I'm actually using up the samples, not leaving them rolling around drawers! Glossy Box started out well but became such a disappointment. I still read up on the latest boxes but none have made me with I still had my subscription.

  2. Looks like a great box. I forgot to cancel my glossy box so it should be waiting for me when I get home. Oh well, it's an extra thing to write a blog post about I guess!

    1. Haha it is indeed! I suppose that's the only bonus to getting it, but other than that most of them seem like such a waste of money now! It's a shame because it was a great box when it started but it seems to have let itself get so far behind the leaders now!
