Women’s Health Edition
This month’s Birchbox is in partnership with Women’s Health. The theme is based around health, fitness and wellbeing, Birchbox has handpicked products that helps you start the year with your best foot forward. I really like this idea, I think Birchbox subscribers would appreciate the theme of this box especially at this time of year.
As usual, the box contains 5 beauty samples and some extra lifestyle bonus items from time to time. If you’re lucky, there’ll be one or two full size item but they tend to be miniature or travel sized. January’s box contained 7 samples in total! One full size, 4 travel size, a sachet of matcha green tea powder and a pilates band. I have included the green tea powder and the pilates band as I have decided to focus on the main products.
Activbod Feel Great Shower Concentrate:
This is nice travel size shower gel to pop in to your gym bag! It is a refreshing blend of green tea extra, sea minerals and soothing almond oil. It cleanses, and deodorises, with an immediate cooling effect on your skin. A great shower gel to use after a work out or a run.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum:
I have received a few Caudalie samples in past beauty sample boxes but I have to admit, I’m not sure I see the hype in Caudalie products yet. It’s a brand that is very popular amongst beauty bloggers but it doesn’t really do anything for me. I’ve tried one of their serums before but I’m not sure if it was the Vinoperfect (with an awesome name like that, I would have remembered!). Anyway, I will give this a go when I’ve finished my current serum.
Philip Kingsley Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo:
I like to keep a stash of miniature shampoos so that I can take them with me on short trips away, so I’ll add this to my collection! Philip Kingsley products are no stranger to beauty box subscribers, but it is always a brand I welcome with open arms. I have only ever tried the Elastizer pre-shampoo conditioner so I’ll be looking forward to trying the shampoo in this month’s Birchbox.
Shaveworks The Cool Fix:
The Cool Fix is a gel lotion that’s formulated to treat razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and redness from waxing or shaving. The gel absorbs in to skin straight away and makes your skin feeling really soft without leaving grease or residue. You can also use it on your skin whenever you feel like it though, so with the cooling effect that it has, it makes a great lotion for post-workout.
Stila Lip Glaze:
Even though I’m not much of a lipgloss fan, I was still really excited to see a Stila product in this month’s Birchbox! It is a full size version which retails at £15, and I got it a shimmery peachy nude “one shade suits suits all” type of shade.
