Make A Splash! Birchbox

I haven’t featured a Birchbox in a little while but July’s one caught my eye instantly as it isn’t even a box! It came in a pink, clear bag, perfect for the beach or pool in the summer, inside theres a whole range of mini summer essentials too.

The Barely Prep, Blot & Blend Sponge caught my eye first as I love a makeup sponge, it’s a full size sponge and although I haven’t had a chance to try it it, it does look great. There is also a mini Benefit Cosmetics Dream Screen sunscreen which has SPF45 and is ultra lightweight with a matte-finish, it isn’t quite big enough to take away but it’s a good size to try the product out or even to keep in your handbag for a bit of a top up.

There is also a Balance Me Congested Skin Serum, Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminizer Gel and a UNANI Aloe Vera Gel which is great as an aftersun. I was also very impressed by the POP beauty eyeshadow Trio in Peach Parfait, it isn’t a full size palette but is the perfect travel size one if you’re only going for a few days!

I also picked a few bits of the Birchbox website which I’m taking away on holiday with me. I’ve heard so many people talking about the The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer and it’s as good as everyone says it is, perfect for adding a bit more of a glow to any look. I’ve also been using the The Balm Nude’tude palette which has such an adorable design, twelve wearable shades and is perfectly streamline to travel with.

Birchbox has also been kind enough to offer £5 off to my readers on their first box using the code SUMMERLO

    Looks like a great Birchbox box/bag! I would love to receive a new makeup sponge. I think that's what I'd be most excited about!
