Birchbox UK August 2014 Un-boxing Review

Birchbox is a subscription beauty box where you receive 5 luxe beauty samples for £10 + £2.95 a month. If you would like to join Birchbox please sign up using my referral link - and we will both get £5 worth of points to spend in the Birchbox E-shop.

This months box 'Away We Go' is all about travel items for holidays. This month instead of the usual drawstring bag the items came in a see-through plastic travel cosmetic case, perfect for taking the essential products away with you on travels.

 This months lifestyle extra is the first chapter of 'The Proposal' by Tasmina Perry. I've not yet read it but it sounds like my kinda book (romance) so I will probably buy the full book on my kindle whicht is available for only £2!

 Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator 20g (rrp £26 for 120ml)

A multi-action product which brightens, exfoliates and cleanses. This product is so effective in dissolving away dead skin cells, it also preps your skin to allow other skincare products to absorb better, making them more effective. Sounds good to me!

 Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect 30ml (rrp £20 for 200ml)
A leave-in conditioning spray used to strengthen, repair, de-tangle, tame flyway ends as well as nourishing and protecting against heat from styling tools and sun damage. It's also 100% Vegan, gluten-free, sulphate-free and paraben-free.

 Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil 5ml (rrp £58 for 30ml)

A nourishing oil that is rich in omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 for hydrated, smooth skin. Gently massage 2-3 drops onto cleansed face and neck day and night. Use alone or with moisturiser.

Chella Highligher Pencil RRP £15.95. Highlight the brow bone, cheekbones and inner corners of the eye with the versatile chunky pencil.

 Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream 2x3ml (rrp £32 for 47ml)
A natural shade-adjusting CC cream with SPF to smooth fine lines and even out skin tone. Acts as both a primer and a foundation. This is the first cc cream I've used and I'm inpressed. I was a little wary at first as it looks really dark when it comes out the tube and I am very pale skined. But this cream blended really well with my skin tone. Very impressed and glad they included 2 samples as they are very small samples.

Another great box for Birchbox! Did you get a Birchbox this month? Did you receive the same or different products?
