Whether you love or hate subscription boxes there's no denying it, Birchbox are definitely some of the best ones out there! We used to get our Birchbox delivered through an intricate system of mail forwarding services which was easy enough but also quite expensive in the long run. Now, finally, Birchbox ship to Ireland!
I like Birchbox for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it's great if you like trying and discovering new products that you may not normally pick up. More importantly, however, it is the most amazing treat from me to me! It's just such a great feeling when you get a little surprise box of goodies delivered in the post.
Without further ado, I will just delve right into the contents - that's why we're all here after all!
Spectrum Collection Tapered Powder Brush
When I first saw this I was skeptical but this synthetic brush is lovely and soft. Great for blush, highlighter, contour or just powder! Really good all-rounder & I will definitely be using it.
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
I have been wanting to try this for ages! This serum is a high powered vitamin C complex that promises to brighten, nourish and protect the skin. It's a reasonable size deluxe sample that will last me for a while and I looking forward to giving it a try.
The Balm Frat Boy Blush
Next up there is the cutest little sample of The Balm's blush. I really like the shade of this, a peachy pink with a golden shimmer shot through it. It's a bit difficult to pick up the product out of the tiny sample but once you blend it a little on the back of your hand, it's actually a lovely product!
LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Champagne Problems
This is a great little eye shadow stick in a pretty golden champagne colour. I will definitely use this - it's lovely on it's own or just a s a brow highlighter.
Ayres Body Butter
This one is probably going to be thrown in with my travel samples. It seems really lovely, packed with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E so I will be bringing it away on my ski trip!
Erickson Grab & Go Ponytail Holder
Weirdly enough, I was most excited about this from the entire box! I love a good hair band and this one is nice and 'grippy' without having any metal buts that will kink and rip out your hair. A definite thumbs up from me!
