Birchbox are really having some very good beauty box months and this months certainly doesn't disappoint! Just like with the previous month being based on sun, sea and sand; this months theme is travel with all the products being enclosed in a cute, little travel friendly bag that is perfect for using on the plane.
After seeing spoilers, I was hoping I would get the sample of the Nude ProGenius Treatment Oil and I'm so glad that I did as I've been dying to try it for ages! This little 5ml sample worth £9.60 promises to transform your skin overnight and give your skin a lumunious glow which lasts all day. I would never splash out £58 for a 30ml facial oil although if the results are that good then I may have to take back this statement.
A product that caught me eye and one that I'm excited about using is the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator Exfoliating Cleanser which is enriched with papaya, micro-crystals and aloe. Apparently you can use this up to five times a week which in turn transforms your skin into looking and feeling softer, younger and brighter. The full size of this is £26 for what I believe is 120ml making this generous 20g sample worth roughly £4.33.
I've never tried anything from Wild About Beauty so I'm glad that I received a full size crème eyeshade in the shade 03 Buster (£13) This is a cream to powder formula in the most beautiful golden bronze shade which requires no brushes as it's so easy to apply and blend. I can't wait to apply this for when I'm next out on the town!
A product that I'm not too crazy about is a 30ml sample of N.4 Lumiere D'Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect worth £3. I think it is essentially a primer for your hair where it protects from UV damage whilst hydrating, repairing and detangling spray. I think this will be getting packed away and brought out next summer as I'll hopefully be going back to America for my 21st.
Lastly, I recieved two 3ml samples of Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct Light to Medium SPF35. I never truly caught onto the whole CC trend but I'm definitely willing to try these out. Apparently, they're self-adjusting shades to match your skin perfectly all with the added bonus of SPF35 so I can't wait to try these out and see if they truly match me perfectly. These two samples are worth £4.55 each.
In addition to the products and the travel size bag, there is a sample chapter of The Proposal by Tasmina Perry which I think I may have to buy the book as it sounds really good after reading the sample chapter. Overall, this box is worth a little over £39 which is very good value for money especially when it's only £10 + £2.95 P+P for the month. I can't wait to see what Birchbox includes in next months as I bet it will be along the themes of back to school or something similar..
