I fell in love with this month’s Birchbox before I had even got the lid off! Summertime beauty vibes are truly in the air and this tropical printed beauty box got me totally in the mood.
Harper’s Bazaar have paired with Birchbox this May to bring you one of their best beauty boxes ever. This month’s theme is all about the great British outdoors in summertime! As the days are getting longer and warmer spending time in the fresh air means it’s time to overhaul your beauty regime. Harpers Bazaar have collated a well thought out collection of new season essentials to prep you for every warm weather event from country walks to music festivals.
The Box – Top 4 picks
Benefit They’re Real Mascara: The Handy Purse Sized Mascara
Festivals are a good excuse to let loose from your typical makeup regime but no woman will be gracing the festival field without a swipe of trusty mascara! Benefit They’re Real mascara is the perfect festi mascara, for big bold rock chick lashes, great buildable formula that dries quickly. Oh and P.S the brush is fantastic.
Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo: Refreshed Roots On-The-Go!
Perfect for when you are at a boozy BBQ that suddenly turns into a bit of an all-nighter. Forget the shower, spritz roots with this scalp-kind, dry shampoo and you are fresh to party til sunrise. I prefer this formula to other brands that cause gunky build up on the scalp and load their formulas with irritating talcs. PK is know for his scalp friendly products because without a healthy scalp, you can’t grow healthy hair. I am totally in love with this product as I have a very sensitive scalp. This will be my go to dry shampoo for here on out!
Liz Earle Hot Polish Cleanser: For Glowing Summer Skin
The cult beauty product that Liz Earle is best know for is her Hot Polish Cleansing regime with muslin cloth. It’s cult status isn’t for nothing! As summer looms we tend to wear makeup with less coverage, so make sure your BB base is fresh and glowing with this mechanical exfoliater containing eucalyptus and rosemary to help brighten and purify and chamomile and cocoa butter to soften skins texture. Muslin cloth included and everything!
Imedeen Derma One:
Has taking a supplement been playing on your mind? Do it! The benefits are numerous. Start your supplement regime now and see results by high summer. You’ll thank me for suggesting it when your hair, nails and skin are glowing. Imedeen offers users a solution for dry skin suffers to obtain a moisturised complexion from the inside out, because good skin starts internally.
Along with these 4 items I received a full size bottle of indie nail polish brand Soigne in a lovely nude colour, Creme au Beurre and a 3ml sample of Aromatherapy Associates Bath and Shower oil in Restful and Tranquil.
Overall Verdict: 4.5/5
