My first Birchbox




Laura Mericier - Tinted moisturizer, Dr. Brant -  Microdermabrasion skin exfoliant, Kms California - Free shape deep conditioner, theBalm cosmetics - Stainiac, Dr. Lipp - Nipple balm for lips, Egyptian Magic. 

I have been wondering wether to subscribe to Birchbox for awhile now so a couple of weeks ago I decided to give it a go. When it arrived I felt myself get all excited and I must say I am a sucker for packaging design and I found the presentation beautiful. I love the fact they give you little extras too, this month it was some eyelash curlers and Egyptian magic - All purpose skin cream. 
I tried this item first my initial thought was that it was pretty greasy and I have got a slight fear of oil based products but I must say I was plesently surprised. It obsorbed into my skin straight away and instantly made it silky smooth. The Dr. Brant - Microdermabrasion skin exfoliant was next on my list to test it smelt lovely and my skin did feel baby soft afterwards but when I saw the price tag I thought i best put it on the 'next payday list'. The Dr. Lipp - Nipple balm for lips is my new every day item especially as it is getting pretty cold outside. At first I thought the whole nipple thing was strange but It is genius, super hydrating and gives your lips a lovely shine. The Kms Calafornia - Free shape deep conditioner is a god send as I have a dangerous love affair with bleach, it made my hair easier to tame and soft to the touch from the first use which is always a bonus. Unfortunately the Laura Mericier - Tinted moisturizer was to dark for my skin tone, I am pretty pale so I need to be very careful when picking these type of products. It was a shame as it was lightweight and blended well. I also struggled with the theBalm cosmetics - Stainiac, it was a dark red and didn't blend well enough into my cheeks but as a lip gloss i think it would be quite a nice colour but I do tend to lean more towards lipsticks rather than gloss. 

Have you got a Birchbox subscription? 
If so I'd love your opinions? ox
