The Box Off!!!!

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Yesterday came a double whammy of excitement I received both my Glossy and Birch Box and after seeing sneaky peeks I could wait to open them.


I first recieved my Birch Box and this month it is sponsored by Instyle. If any of you follow me on twitter you will know how happy I was with this box I loved it. So ill stop rambling and get on to the contents.


The first thing i noticed on opening the drawstring bag was a little box saying Rock Your Nights Enjoy Your Days on the front, inside was a gel filled eyemask it combat those puffy tired eyes just pop it in the fridge to make it super cool. I loved this little gift this was an lifestyle extra. 


Also as an Life style extra I received the Inner Me Lustrous Locks supplements Im looking forward
to using these as I am also taking the Skin Hair and Nails Supplements. These are suppose to contain
 the perfect combination for growing lustrous locks.

Then on to the 5 main products 1st to be pulled out was the Bluemandarines Skinlife Energetic Cellular Cream this is used after cleansing to brighten, refresh and protect skin. I will look forward to using this and will let you know how it goes as it is £35 for the full size so it will have to be good for me to part with that amount of spondoolies


The Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer took my eye as it was quite a big sample on looking into this i found it was a hair mask for before shampooing.I have never tried anything like but I am happy I received it and look forward to using it tonight.


I then spied something I thought I had already received but I was wrong it was the Gerda Spillmann Hydropearls Moisturiser I had previously received their Eye gel and was impressed so looking
forward to this.



I only received one makeup item this month and that was a Laqua  & Co Lil lip in the colour Wolfman a pretty pale pinky nude so different to any lip colours I own. So i'm looking forward to trying this out to see if it suits me.
Finally was a Molten Brown Body wash which i was super happy with its smells lovely too it was in the scent Ylang Ylang.

On a whole this is the best Birch box have received lots of different types of products now on to Glossy Box.


I had seen that a few people had got eyelashes curlers to the value of £20 and I was secretly hoping that these would be in the box as I really needed some decent ones and to my delight there they were woohoo they are by a brand called Emite Makeup and I did give these a little test and they seem to work very well.


There was also a perfume Sample from Juicy Couture in Viva la Juicy and this is a really nice sweet scent perfect for summer. I do love a perfume sample especially when they are spray top. 

The on product I was really happy about was the Purity Made Simple by Philosophy. I have always wanted to try this brand but have never got round to buying any so this is the perfect opportunity to try it out before I buy.

I then got 2 beauty items a Makeup Remover pen by Oceane this is not yet available in the UK. I first thought this was a nail varnish remover but it isnt its for face an eye makeup something  have not used before. Lastly was a eyeshadow and eyeliner 2 in 1 pencil by Jelly pong pong im hoping that this is better than the Mascara i received a few months ago.


What do you think???

  4. Thanks for this post! I used to get a Birchbox, but I only got samples of perfume and weird things I'd never use, like tanning towels and sticky tabs to put inside your dresses that would adhere to your skin to keep from falling... so silly. Looks like I'll have to give glossy a try :) I'm your newest follower! Cheers!www.madmakeuplove.blogspot.com

  14. Great post! Thanks for sharing. I subbed to Birchbox, but I was so disappointed with it that I cancelled after I received my first box. Glossy seems to be a little bit better, in my opinion! Have you ever tried Beauty Army? It's what I'm subbed to currently, and I love it!

    By the way, I'm your newest follower, yay! :)

  17. It's so interesting to see what people get in their boxes that is different to the ones we get. It's also great to see the different opinions too. We've just reviewed our BirchBox - it was our first go.
