My lovely friend Nat has very kindly donated her July Birchbox so I can have a peek at all the products and tell you lovelies all about it!
As a subscriber to Glossybox (Check out my lasts post – July Glossybox), I did wonder what the differences between the two boxes would be. Having something to compare the Birchbox to could make my opinion sway one way or another.
So here is the July 2013 Birchbox!
The box itself is cute, but very plain, certainly in comparison to the July Glossybox. Although it’s quite classic and sweet. I actually do like it.
Opening the box, a few little flyers fall out. One, a cute little postcard message from the Birchbox team and details of the products inside my box, and the other, a little teaser for the August Birchbox, announcing a collaboration with InStyle! Intriguing!
All the product samples come in a gorgeous little drawstring bag! This is such a neat little idea and I’ve already got some ideas of how I can re-use the little bag!
At first glance, this box does look very skin care heavy. Here are the products inside:
Blanc Cachemire Creme de jour protectrice moisturiser (inside the cute little green packet)
Dead Sea Spa Magik Body Lotion
theBalm Cosmetics Staining Blush
VitaBella Anti-Ageing Face Mask
Reverence de Bastien – VolupTHE Hand cream
The Chia Co Shots
So definitely skincare heavy, but I think the quality of the brands and products are superb! I am particularly excited about trying out the face mask – you will see why when I pop the post up in the next week!
I love the addition of the Chia Co Shots, which also has a little recipe card. A lovely little lifestyle extra in addition to the beauty products.
As I do with Glossybox, I will review each of the products individually in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for those. The best way to keep an eye out for them is to follow me on bloglovin!
Along with all of these, comes the Birchbox magazine, which trumps Glossybox’s mag, with no doubt. There is much more content, instructions on how to use products in your box, and lots of other cute articles along with glossy pics. Definitely a good little read!
Hmmm... I think a new subscription may be on its way!
Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What do you think? Or are you a Glossybox girl? I'd love to know your thoughts!
