July BIRCHBOX – I know it’s late!!!

Well, well, well, look who has been slacking!! Yup, me!

I know we are in August now but I am going to review the July Birchbox because it is my first ever Birchbox, and I wanted to give my thoughts on it.

When I first received the box my first thought was wow, it’s tiny! Then I opened it! Remember girls, size isn’t everything!!!

How cute is the little drawer string bag! So adorable! I have never had anything like this and I just found it so cute!

Then I got down to the contents……

balance me

Firstly I got the balance me wonder eye cream which couldn’t have come at a better time since the bags under my eyes now resemble suitcases. I wouldn’t even mind if it was because I have been up all night partying but it has more to do with being engrossed in my recent book and just having to read ‘one more chapter’ resulting in me getting to sleep at 2am. So when I got this eye cream I was really happy 🙂

hand cream

Secondly was the crème pour les mains Extra Pur Mediterranee, which was hand cream, which as all of you know I am obsessed with! So that was another great product for me. So it is now on my desk in my office awaiting use.


Thirdly I got La Qa & Co Lip Lube which sounds like an Ann Summers product but is actually makeup and came in a cute coral colour which is one of my favourite shades for summer. I will be featuring it in my paint my pout daily blog.

pore fessional

My fourth product was the Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm, and although I already have a full sized tube of this I love having miniatures of my favourite products so that I don’t have to take the full size on holiday with me. So this was another product I was really pleased with.


Then my Fifth product was the Soigné Botanique Nail varnish, which has to be the poshest looking nail varnish I have ever owned! It came in a little black and white box and then inside a foam insert.

The colour is a fabulous Raspberry colour, which is really close to an OPI one that I had just run out of. So again I was really pleased with this product.


The Final Product was the Chia seed shot, which really intrigued me as I love trying different supplements and seeds etc so I was really excited to get this too. I tried them mixed in with a yoghurt 🙂

So what did I think of my First Birchbox? It was as if the products had been picked especially for me. I loved it, and I cannot wait until the August box to see what goodies are in store for me.
