Hello Everybody! My July Birchbox blog post is finally here!
This month theme ‘Summer Daze’ actually fits in pretty well since we are in the midst of summer, and what we received are definitely handy beauty essentials for the long summer days which to me, makes total sense.
This month Birchbox design is summery and cute! A few months ago, Birchbox put up for voting a few designs and I voted for this one, which happened to be the winning box design after all 🙂
But let me go straight to the point and share with you all the fab products I received and did not received. That’s right! Keep reading to find out more.
Benefit Cosmetics – Lip & Cheek Stain
Instead of five, we were meant to receive a sixth beauty item this month. One of the products every birchboxer was supposed to get was this one: Benefit Lip & Cheek Stain in the colour of your choice (chacha – coral Or gogo – pink). I picked the coral one and guess what?… I DIDN’T GET THIS PRODUCT AT ALL!! I was so disappointed 🙁
I emailed them, they apologised and it’s on it’s way to me. I will let you know once I get it, if I get it. Now, fingers crossed because I was really looking forward to getting this!
Native Unearthed – Natural Deodorant Balm
I might sound crazy but I was super HAPPY to have received this because this is Paraben and Aluminium Free. It’s been almost over a year I switched my commercial deodorant brands containing toxic ingredients such as those mentioned above — that can clog up the lymph nodes around the armpits, leading to mayor health problems with time — for natural ones.
I’m super glad Birchbox is promoting this type of natural products! Currently, I am using a natural deodorant named ‘Salt of the Earth‘ – it’s very effective and amazing overall! I will write a review about it pretty soon 😉
Going back to Native Unearthed, I received the Coconut Vanilla and I am liking the lovely natural coconut smells it has to it and the effectiveness on the hot summery days. You apply a small amount with your fingers and rub it like cream. Very easy! I will finish this pot and purchase a full size.
Balance Me – Flash Cleanse Micellar Water
When it comes to natural, I want it all! Haha you probably would have noticed by now 🙂
Balance me is an awesome brand and this micellar water is heaven! It’s free from loads of chemicals and it contains chamomile infused water which helps soothing the skin and leaves it very smooth and clean of course.
There is not much to say about it, only that this is going to my shopping list for sure!
Percy & Reed – Overnight Hair Recovery
I am a little sceptical about leaving a hair mask overnight but I guess you will never know if it works until you try it, right?
I have long hair and like to keep it looking healthy as I can but I am also conscious of certain products that can damage it in the long run. I prefer homemade masks but I like the sound of this ‘Perfectly Wonder Overnight Recovery‘ as it is supposed to hydrate, boost, shine and fight frizz and it doesn’t transfer to your pillow. I will try it eventually.
Tangle Teezer – Compact Styler
I received the famous Tangle Teezer, which I already purchased a few years ago for its incredible way to untangle my long hair haha! However I must admit, I’m quite happy with this handbag-friendly version. I can bring it anywhere with me!
This brush besides untangle my hair, it also claims to smooth the hair’s cuticle with the short teeth for more shine effect. It’s a good brush really!
Kensie – Eau de Parfum
This is the very first time I get a perfume sample. The fragrance is fresh and lovely with tones of mandarin, rose, peach, vanilla and cedar – perfect for summer. But this is my least favourite item this month.
