Limited Edition Tatler Birchbox*
There was a teaser in last month's Birchbox which gave a hint that a partnership with Tatler Magazine was on the cards. Very exciting! Subscribers will still receive the standard monthly box but for something extra special, Birchbox have teamed up with Tatler Magazine to offer this limited edition box for the price of £25.
Birchbox have worked closely with the beauty editor at Tatler, Francesca White, to curate this beautiful edition for April 2015. It contains six beauty products that celebrates and coincides with the launch of Tatler's new supplement 'The Best Of British'.
Overall, the value of the box is worth £60 and it will contain the following products:
Percy & Reed Dry Instant Volumising Spray, 200ml
On the card, it says that this is a dry shampoo and upon first impressions, the way that it's worded on the packaging, it does look like dry shampoo. I tested this out on my greasy hair but it didn't do anything to mattefy it. It didn't come out chalky, it just made my hair look even greasier.
I looked in to this product and this appears to a form of styling spray that instantly boosts the volume of your hair at the roots and controls fly-aways. The spray feels natural and flexible on hair and doesn't leave that crunchy, crispy texture. I really like the Percy & Reed range and the packaging is really cute and dainty.
Dr. Jackson Natural Products Face Oil 03
I LOVE face oils, I can't live without them at the moment. I've been using face oils as part of my skincare routine for a year now and I've seen a huge difference in results. I use it before I moisturise and my skin feels smoother, healthier and protected from the elements. Using a couple of drops drastically improves the appearance of my skin so I can't wait to crack in to the Dr. Jackson face oil. It won't be a while yet because I'm still using the Jurlique facial oil at the moment.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, 50ml
If you're a regular reader of my blog, this one needs no introduction as it has been featured on my blog time and time again. I highly recommend the Liz Earle Cleanse And Polish, it's an AMAZING skincare product and it's another one that I can't live without. This is a very cute travel sized bottle, so I'll keep this for when I'm away from home. It also comes with a muslin towel.
Ciate Paint Pot, full size
Being a pretty big fan of Ciate, it's always exciting when you get a Ciate product in a beauty box! I was happy to see a nail polish shade that wasn't the standard red. I received the Ciate Paint Pot in Maybe Baby (PP148) which Ciate describes it as a sumptious truffle shade, a purply-brown that sadly doesn't quite suit my skintone. My sister will love this, though!
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Cream, 40ml
(Full sized version cost £36)
I've heard about this brand through beauty YouTubers who have been raving about it. It is not available to buy outside of London so I've not had the chance to check it out yet. The Renewing Rose Body Cream is a nice handbag sized so I will use this as hand cream as opposed to a body cream to make the tube last a bit longer. The rich cream is formulated with rose geranium, shea butter, and evening primrose and it absorbs in to skin straight away and is not greasy at all.
Bamford Hand and Body Wash, 50ml
(Full sized version cost £22)
I really love the colour of this, it is a beautiful glowing green in the light. The Bamford body washes are made from 72% organic ingredients and the sample received in Birchbox is made from geranium, lavendar and peppermint. It doesn't smell like your typical shower gel, and as it smells slightly medicinal, it's probably not everyone's cup of tea but it's refreshing for the morning showers or after a work-out.
If you fancy getting your hands on this or perhaps buy it as a present for your beauty junkie best friend, visit Birchbox to buy the Tatler edition for £25. You don't have to be a subscriber of Birchbox to buy the Tatler edition, it is a one time purchase and you will not be tied down to a monthly subscription. They will be shipped out around 9th April. You will not be disappointed!
