My August Birchbox has arrived and this month theme is ‘Mermaid Vibes‘, which is inspired on that beachy and natural look. The box itself gives you that beach vibe immediately.
So let’s see in detail the beauty products Birchbox sent us this month that will give us that mermaid look.
So this month full size item is this hand-finished make-up brush that works to setting up your powder, highlighter or bronzer.
I really find these brushes very useful and super soft on the skin. The other great thing about them is that they are crafted from synthetic fibres and are totally cruelty-free. Who doesn’t like make-up brushes anyway!
This texturising spray helps creating those beachy waves by applying lightly onto damp or dry hair, but you probably need a diffuser to make it work 100%. I think this spray is perfect for the beach holidays, when all you want to do is to keep it simple.
This is the first time I hear this, but this spray is formulated with sugar cane! Sounds crazy, right? But it doesn’t leave that stickiness in your hair, it actually gives a lot of hydration, shine and makes it easy to texturise your hair into waves. I think this little bottle is coming with me to my next holidays 🙂
This face cream is SO GOOD! I was a bit sceptical to try this on but I searched for the ingredients and all I can see is good stuff in it. So I decided to give it a try and from the very first moment, I noticed my skin is feeling moist and looks hydrated, which is very satisfying since my skin is dry.
Some of the ingredients in this face cream are organic rose water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, beeswax and other organic ingredients. Basically this cream assists with leaving your skin hydrated, radiant and free of skin dead cells.
I am intending to finish this small sample this week and if my skin still looking great, I will go for the full-size tube!
This full size eyeshadow pencil is one of the ‘Birchbox Exclusive’ and I found out these are paraben-free and cruelty-free. I never heard of this brand before but this makes me like them straight away.
I applied this on yesterday and waited until the end of the day to remove it and let me tell you – there were no signs of creasing on my eye lids. This is something that tends to happen after a long day and I absolutely hate it because it looks like you are back from the night club and people look at you weirdly!
This eyeshadow stick is not doing that and the colour doesn’t fade too much. I really like the lovely shimmering brown colour it leaves behind. The instructions say to apply on the eye lid and blend with your fingertips, but I did the opposite (applied on my fingertips first and then blend it) and it worked just fine.
Merci Handy makes products that smell incredible. This hand sanitiser has a perfect size for your handbag and to me, this item is very useful and important to have. Especially if you are scared, like me, to catch the flu, etc.
Besides being a hand sanitiser, this gel also contains vitamin E and is enriched with emollient beads to hydrate your hands, not like other sanitisers that often dry your skin. Guys! This stuff smells so good! Did I mention that already? 🙂
