I'm not going to waffle too much about the Birchbox and Harpers Bazaar collaboration, what I will say is that the box is beautifully designed and easily (contents wise, heck design too) the best beauty box of 2014 thus far!
Here is what was inside...
Benefit They're Real Mascara (sample size) - You'll either love this mascara or hate it. I love that it really does add unbeliable length to the lashes but as my eyelashes are so fine and flimsy, not to mention they don't hold a curl the formula is a little too heavy for my personal taste. It also has a tendency to flake. Like I said you either love it or leave it...
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (sample size) - A now cult cleanser that has won over 100 beauty awards, it gentle cleanses the skin and is a real treat to use. If you are new to skin care this is a great staple cleanser to begin with, you simply apply to dry skin, ,massage and wipe off using a warm muslin cloth. It really is a treat.
Aromatherapy Associates Relax Light Bath and Shower Oil (sample size) - I am a huge fan of Aromatherapy Associates oils - they are so indulgent and a treat not only for the body but for the senses too. Relax Light is the perfect addition to any night bath or shower as it will not only soften the skin but help you to unwind. Bonne nuit mon amie.
Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo (travel size) - We all need a good dry shampoo for those days when our hair is looking a little flat and lifeless or perhaps we have skipped a wash...oops. Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo is one of the few formulations that doesn't leave my scalp itchy, it has a pleasant scent, soaks up excess oil and adds volume. What more could you want?
Imedeen Derma One (full size) - At £37.99 these anti-ageing supplements aren't cheap but they are aimed at the 30+ age group which I'm a little while away from approaching. I have no opinions on these what so ever, sorry.
Soigne Nail Lacquer (full size) £11 - This is a non toxic polish line and I have to say it is rather impressive, seldom do I find polishes that are opaque in one quick coat like this. I have the shade Cerise a bright pink as the name may suggest. It is rather pretty.
