BEAUTY | Birch Box August 2018

Thursday, August 16, 2018

My penultimate Birch box and this month it's a little bit bittersweet. I think this might be the best box I've had. 

It's not good enough for me to reconsider my subscription (I've asked for it to not auto-renew after the last box is issued next month) but I think if this box had been last months I might have considered letting it run or taking out another 3-month subscription. 

With surprise subscriptions, there is always a risk of getting things you don't like or won't use and my boxes have been very 50/50.

No4 Sugar Texturising Spray

This isn't something I've come across before and I'm quite excited to use it. I like the idea of a none crunchy texture spray, the claims on the bottle say it's like a non-crunchy salt spray.

I haven't had call to do my hair since receiving this but I will be trying this very soon and I have high hopes.

Dirty Little Secret - Eye Crayon in Fetch

This seems a little disappointing, the RRP is £12 and I feel the packaging is very cheap looking and feeling. The product also doesn't want to blend on me. It just seems to wipe off. I have similar products which cost a lot less and work a lot better. 

Dr Botanicalled Po Over Night Mask

I'm excited to use this, it smells amazing and I love a good overnight mask, I also think the packaging is very cute. This isn't a brand I'm familiar with but I find it very appealing.

Rituals foaming showergel

I have used few of these over various subscription services and every scent I've tried have been amazing, I also find these last quite a while and are fab for taking on holiday as they seem to be cooling and double as shaving cream.

CLE Melting Lip Powder

This might be the strangest product I've ever tried and I honestly don't know how I feel about it. In the tube it is 100% powder, when it comes out of the tube it's a mix of powder and almost foamy substance. It applies like a thickish matt lip stain but the first time I tried it after about 15 minutes it had worn off the centre of my lips but left almost a lip liner effect. I will be giving it another try and maybe spend more time on the application.

It also says it can be used on cheeks but I haven't tried that as yet. My mum was very taken with it, so if it doesn't work for me I think I will be passing it on.

How many of you tried to wipe that hair off your screen? Me I did about 4 times while I was writing this post. Apologies I should redo the pictures but ya know!
