Birchbox has always been the best beauty box in my eyes, offering a good variety of brands with generous sized samples and unique lifestyle additions in each box. Until January I hand’t bought a beauty box in a very long time but when I saw the January birch box could include HealGel and Philip Kingsley I clicked purchase before I could even change my mind. The January box is a result of a collaboration with Women’s Health magazine and includes revitalising body treatments, antioxidant super-tea and a workout band making it perfect to start the new year with a refreshing outlook. Inside my box I received:
Birchbox Pilates Band
My box was also supposed to contain a Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum but this was missing on arrival and after tweeting and emailing Birchbox and receiving no response I gave up. I have to say I was quite disappointed with the contents of the box and wish I had not been so impulsive with this purchase, especially as one of the main products I would have used in the box is missing!! However the Stila Lip Glaze’s are some of my favourite glosses and I will definitely welcome this new addition to my collection! Plus I already own the Korres Citrus Body Milk and absolutely love the smell so to receive the shower gel is spot on.
I can’t say I will get much use out the pilates band or the activbod lotion as I am the laziest person when it comes to exercise but I have plenty of gym-obsessed friends I can pass these onto. Green tea is something I repeatedly try but I just haven’t acquired a taste for yet. I am going to keep trying it as there are sooooo many benefits to gain from drinking it, and I like the fact you can use this particular tea blended into smoothies and juices. Overall although I will get some use out of the products I received, I don’t think I will be ordering a beauty box of this type for a while. I need to stop being so impulsive with my purchases to make sure I receive my money’s worth every-time.
