Birchbox Unboxing – August

All I’m gonna say is mermaid vibesssss! Birchbox have killed it with this cute summery box with some beautiful mermaid themed goodies!

Firstly, the box is blue and detailed like a mermaid tail – so cute.

I received five items in this month’s box, all of which I’m super happy about!


The item that we got a sneak peek of was a gorgeous Spectrum A05 brush, which is great for highlight and contouring in my opinion. It has super soft bristles and feels lovely, plus – it’s pink and looks pretty in my brush holder.


The next product I tried was the Number 4 Sugar Texturizing Spray (RRP £20). I lightly spritzed my damp hair and it gave my hair a much needed lift, volume and body – I was really impressed. It’s so lightweight and doesn’t leave your hair feeling crunchy or tacky either.


Next up was the Nuxe Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer (RRP £20) which I was desperate to receive. To create a gorgeous glow, just use a small amount of product and smooth in, be it for highlight, or shimmery party legs. The oil isn’t greasy or oily, it dries leaving a subtle golden glow on your skin, perfect for holiday!


Want good skin but don’t have time for a routine? This Whish Renewing Mud Mask works in just 15 seconds. It’s an exfoliating mud mask that brightens and purifies. It’s super quick, super easy and super fruity! This retails at £29, but apparently it works in 15 seconds? So that’s a miracle right?


Lastly we have the LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in Rock Steady (RRP £8), an earthy shimmery eyeshadow shade that provides a quick and easy makeup looks, simply swipe and blend. Done.


I’ve been having Birchbox for two months now and I’m really happy so far, I’ve had some amazong products. My favourites so far have been the Benefit Cha Cha Tint and the Spectrum A05 brush!

Beff xx

    I’ve just bought the Spectrum AO5 because I need a good brush for bronzing/contouring and this looks perfect for the job. I love the mermaid box, when I used to get Birchbox I saved all the drawer boxes and I’ve got three stacked up on my desk that I use to fill up with make-up. They’re so useful! x


  6. I keep meaning to resubscribe to birchbox! I used to have both birchbox and glossybox back in the day haha. It’s so exciting getting new things to try each month! xx
