I received the new Birchbox a couple of days ago and let me just say, I have so much fun seeing what comes in these boxes! I love trying out the new products each month (some of which can admittedly, be boring at times) but generally, I do enjoy them.
I must say I do like the little pink drawstring bags the products come in; although my daughter runs of with it as soon as I open it!
1. Gerda Spillmann Renaissance Age Serum
This is an anti-ageing face cream. I am 27, but I have not yet started using face products to prevent the signs of ageing. It does state that it is for all ages, so I don't mind giving it a try!
Retail Price: For full size: £69.00
2. La Societe Parisienne De Savons- Soap
This smells very floral and I suppose, sort of classic. It will look lovely wrapped the way it is in the bathroom. It is also fun to try new soaps and I know I would probably not have bought this on a normal basis so it will be a nice product to try. It is a full size product too which is a bonus.
Retail Price: Full size £8.50
3. Mirenesse- Glossy Kiss
I, especially these days, love trying these glossy stain type of products. Many brands are coming out with them which is really fun and also a nice kind of product to try in the spring months. The shade however, is a red with gold shimmer. It is a little too over the top for my liking and will most probably sit in my drawer unfortunately.
Retail price: £17.50
4. Weleda- Skin Food
This moisturiser is apparently one which Victoria Beckham raves about. It is for dry elbows and heels which quite honestly, I have not tried a product of this type before. It will be interesting to see how it works out.
5. Green & Spring- Relaxing Shampoo
This shampoo smells sort of herbal. It is not a fragrance I enjoy in my shampoo but I will try it anyway.
Retail price: For full size £16.00
Birchbox- Paname Paris Mirror
A pretty little, unexpected extra, which is always nice to have. I always lose mirrors like these and so it is nice to have an extra one lying around!
Overall, I am not crazy about this months box. The products are just okay. Sometimes I feel like, some products that are sent to us are basically products that do not sell in the shops. That is, slightly disappointing, but I will still wait and see what next months box brings!
