If you read my June 2017 Birchbox post, you'll know that I cancelled my subscription when I received the box as I was a liiiiiittle disappointed. However, when I got an email the other day offering me a free Benefit mascara trio with a July box, hell I jumped back on the wagon & subscribed again, because why not...

The theme for July's Birchbox was Summer Daze & the packaging is absolutely stunning, so I will definitely be reusing it for something else.

Here's what I received in my July Birchbox

 First of all, how lovely is the Birchbox, well... box?

Rituals Hammam Delight Foaming Shower Gel
RitualiTea Oolang-La Face Mask
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery
Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar Water
Benefit Cosmetics Cha-cha Tint
Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris Eau de Parfum

I love all of it so far - when I was opened the box, I was greeted with the smell of the hair recovery mask, which is absolutely beautiful. I've tried Percy & Reed hair products before & I like them, so this was a nice surprise! I'm looking forward to trying the foaming shower gel, as I love a nice lather in the shower... it just makes me feel squeaky clean! I tried the micellar water last night to take my makeup off - I love it, it left my skin feeling really fresh. One thing I will say is that it left my face feeling a little sticky, which my usual water doesn't. However, it did take off all traces of makeup & didn't irritate my skin or anything.

The face mask is said to purify oilier skin complexions, so I'm not sure how it will work for me, as I have normal/dry skin... never oily. I'll still try it out, of course. I'm looking forward to trying the Cha-cha Tint, but I'm deathly afraid of applying too much - I've tried a little bit on the back of my hand & it's already stained!

I think a little will go a long way with this product. The smell of the mini perfume sample is so so lovely, fruity & fresh - it reminds me a little bit of Miss Sixty, & definitely something I would consider buying in the future.

Next up was the little Benefit mascara trio

They're Real tinted primer
They're Real mascara
They're Real remover

We get it, they're real! I have used this mascara before & it's one of my favourites. I'll do a full post on the set soon... it's cute though & it really is a mini set!

  1. I like the design of your box. I'm sampled out for a bit, so I plan to cancel after August.

  2. I like this blog because that gave me more information about this products. This helps me to select cosmetics by myself.
