My March Birchbox has finally arrived! 🙂 This time it took longer than expected for some reason but I’m glad it is here. If you are wondering what is Birchbox, I recommend you reading ‘My February Birchbox‘ post. Although judging by the photos, I’m sure you already have an idea of what I’m talking about.
This month, inside the Birchbox, I found a cute little poach with all the items inside. This bag is perfect to keep in place all the little samples I get, so thank you Birchbox for the nice surprise 🙂
But let me jump straight to the point and share with you the items I received this month 😉
Benefit Lipstick- Double the Lip in Lusty Rose
One of the great things I’ve experienced with Birchbox is that they like to reveal one beauty item coming in your next box and they let you choose your favourite one. This was the case with the New Benefit lipstick – They’re Real! Double the lip. I got the chance to pick between the colours Lusty Rose or Pink Thrills. So I went for the most natural looking colour and chose Lusty Rose.
I tried it on and am not regretting it – this colour is perfect to wear during the day and I love their two-in-one formula (liner and long-lasting lipstick) that gives you that fuller-looking lips, and it doesn’t dry up your lips. So this is definitely an item I would purchase full size and in more colours 😉
Balance me (natural skincare) – Instant Lift Primer
Primers are so great to smooth the skin and to prep your skin before applying make up on! I’m always up for trying new Primers; however this one seems to be a kind of primer that refines the skin by blurring the lines and covering the pores on your face. Great, right?
Balance Me is made of a 99% natural blend of hyaluronic acid and acacia gum, which boost the collagen on your skin, making it look smoother. I can’t wait to try this product but I’m not sure whether my skin needs it or not. I’ll give it a go anyway as I like the idea of boosting the collagen in my skin. So I’ll see how it goes.
Caudalie Vine [Activ] – Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum
I’m actually quite excited to try Caudalie products as they use natural ingredients such as Organic grape water and grape-seed oil. They claim to be environmentally friendly and against animal testing. However, this serum is meant to help smoothing initial signs of wrinkles and bringing a healthy glow to the skin, as well as protecting the skin from the everyday aggressors found in the polluted air.
Caudaline serum is to be applied AM and PM before the moisturiser but personally, I only like to use serums during the night. In the mornings I like to apply a layer of Nuxe because it leaves my skin so hydrated. Although, I can’t wait to see the result of this serum!
Rituals – Foaming Shower Gel
I am delighted to say that I LOVE Rituals shower gels and I am very happy I received this product. I started using this foamy gel thanks to my boyfriend’s brother and his girlfriend haha. That’s right! I received it as a Christmas present and I got hooked immediately.
It exists in different fragrances but The Ritual Of Sakura is my favourite so far because it contains Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossoms to nourish and cleanse your skin plus the smell is DIVINE. You only need to squeeze out a small amount as it is enough to give you a lot of foam to lather up. It kind of remind me of shaving gels.
FYI – the 50ml is perfect for travelling 😉
Batiste – 2-in-1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner
If you have long hair like me, Dry Shampoo can come in handy those days when you are in a hurry and have no time to wash your hair. Especially if it takes you so long to dry it, which is my case. I’ve tried Batiste and other brands such as Herbal Essences dry shampoo but I have to admit I always go back to Batiste since it is the one that gives me the best results.
I received the 50ml Orange & Pomegranate fragrance. When I opened the box and saw the bottle – I had to try it on the spot. And guess what? It didn’t disappoint me at all. This new 2-in-1 formula leave your hair looking healthy and clean, and the smell is soooo nice! I will definitely buy a full size bottle once this one is empty 🙂
So this is it! The 5 items from my March Birchbox. I really hope you have enjoyed reading this post! And if you have used any of these products, let me know your experience in the comment box just below 😉
