The Birch Box, a subscription service where you pay to have a surprise box of beauty treats sent to you each month. A great way to discover new things and try out a whole world of different products. I don’t mean to be a party pooper, but this makes me feel ill. I like to be in complete control of what I’m buying, I do research look into brands and read reviews before splashing the cash, so spending on a box of stuff I might not like well quite frankly it breaks me out in a rash.
A little birdie tweeted and I got word of the Selfridges Birch box. Through out September pop into Selfridges beauty workshop, the wonderful world of all things beauty and build your own birch box. Now this is my kinda language. I headed there saw lots of brands and bits I’d like to try and before I new it I was buying. Priced at £15 I think this is pretty good deal.
The lovely girls give you a box and a bag along with a tick list and off you go, 2 make-up, 1 skincare, 1 body care, 1 haircare and 1 beauty treat. I played it safe and went for products that I had heard good things about, or that people had recommended.
Percy & Reed – reassuringly firm session hold hairspray
Rituals – yogi flow foaming shower gel sensation
Benefit – pore fessional
This Works – sleep + pillow spray
Elemis – pro-collagen marine cream
Lord and Berry – black eye liner
I’m really excited to try everything, let me know if there is anything you are interested in and I will report back once I’ve tested things out.
