Birch Box Website: BirchBox
Hello my lovely readers, This review is on Birch Box April 2013 which I received last week and thought of sharing the contents and review with you. So here we go:
This month's theme is 'IN BLOOM'. Usual box design along with its magazine with spring feeling to it. Inside the box I have received:
- Gerda Spillmann Age Serum
- La Societe Parisienne De Savons Soap
- Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lip pencil
- Waleda Skin Food
- Green & Spring Shampoo
- ...& Lifestyle Extra: BirchBox Paname Pris Mirror
Gerda Spillmann Age Serum (Full-size £69.00 , sample size received 3ml)
Keep up your youthful appearance this spring with antioxidant enriched here serum. Add it to your routine for fresh, supple skin for all ages. It's a thin textured serum and I haven't used it yet, as I haven't yet started using any aging products however, I'll give this a go.
Waleda Skin Food (Full Size £8.95, Sample Size received 10ml)
It's an organic product used by Victoria Beckham who swears by this all-natural moisturiser which softens dry heels and elbows with ease. I am exciting to try this product as I have tried other Waleda products before and they're lovely.
Green & Spring Shampoo (Full Size £16, Sample Size received 50ml)
This product has lavender scent and ideal for everyday use. Some people have received the conditioner range by the same brand and I received a shampoo which I am glad I have however I dislike the smell, just not my type :(
Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lip pencil (Full Size £17.50, Sample received Full Size)
This is the only product that I am going to use out of all from this box. It's a lovely rosy colour and creamy lip pensil stick which is well pigmented. This product has a light shimmer to it and looks lovely on. I have been a Mirenesse lover for a while and always been placing an order which comes all the way from Australia. Love this product <3
La Societe Parisienne De Savons Soap (Full Size 8.50, available to purchase here)
Quite nice packaging as you can see however I am not keen on the smell at all and therefore won't be using it. I'll be passing it on to my mum or a work colleague.
BirchBox Paris Mirror
And last but not the least, BirchBox thrown in a little mirror in our box as a lifestyle extra this month. This is come handy to put it in my handbag when I loose my current one (haha, always loosing it).
Overall I am not too keen on most of the products that I have received this month however, it's a good range but just not my type. We have to remember that , it's only a sampling service so we won't necessarily be getting the products we always want. I am looking forward to the next month's box and hope it would be a better one than this.
