Harpers Bazaar Birchbox

So since starting my blog I’ve been eager to sign up to one of the many beauty subscription boxes out there so after doing a bit of research reading other bloggers thoughts on all things subscription boxes I decided to try Birchbox. I though this would be the one which would suit me because they promise to deliver high end beauty items along with a sprinkle of lifestyle products too as well the fact they seemed to offer many brands I’ve never even heard of before! The fact that May was a Harpers Bazaar one sealed the deal.

So the day came and my beautiful Birchbox arrived….


I opened the box and the first thing I saw was the utterly beautiful and colourful box, I knew instantly this was going to be not just good but REALLY good.


When I first undid the package I was a bit bombarded with cards with lots of information on, in all honesty I wasn’t bothered about them I just wanted to know what was in this beautifully tropical looking box.

The Contents
Sample size of Benefit They’re real mascara – this is something I’ve been dying to try for a while now so I was super pleased with this little offering.
Sample size of Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish – Again this is something I’ve been meaning to give a whirl so the fact it was in the box is fab as it means I can give it ago without having to buy a full size.
Soigne´nail lacquer in Persimmon – A brand I never heard of so was curious as to what this was like. On its a beautiful orange red that goes on like a dream. I think I’ve found a new favourite nail polish brand!
Aromatherapy Associates revive morning bath and shower oil – Bath and shower oil have never really been my thing but in all the bitts of information that came with it (yes I did eventually read it) there was a little tip to use it as a light daytime fragrance which is more up my street.
Beauty Protector shampoo and conditioner – Again a brand I’ve never heard of so I am curious to try this especially as its sulphate free.


So overall I am impressed with my first Birchbox and can’t wait to get the June one. What did you think to this months Birchbox?

Thanks for reading!
