August Birchbox

This month's Birchbox came at perfect timing! On wednesday I fly to Amsterdam (I am ridiculously excited) and this month's box focuses on summer getaways! The little clear bag that the products come in is perfect for keeping your hand luggage liquids and it's also super cute. So, onto the contents:

Liaison de parfum £105
This perfume comes in a really cute envelope and is the perfect size for travelling, there are a few different ones that you can get in the box, the one I got was "I dare you." I think this would be better suited to more mature people, it's nice but not one that I would usually purchase. 

Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect £20
A leave in conditioner which you spray on your hair while it's damp, it protects it against heat and sun damage while also detangling. This smells absolutely incredible and I've been needing a new heat protectant spray as I've been trying to take better care of my hair!

Supergoop Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream £32
This is a CC cream which contains a really good SPF, it also claims to smooth fine lines and even the skin tone. I think this would be really great if you're going away as you don't always want to wear heavy foundations but would rather wear something lighter, it also has high SPF so it also looks after your skin.

Wild About Beauty Creme Eyeshadow £13
This creme eyeshadows is paraben free so it doesn't contain harmful chemicals, I really love this shade, it's a really pretty champagne shade which I wear quite a lot of so it's perfect for me. The formula is lovely and creamy so it applies really nicely onto my eyelids.

Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil £58
This is a "nourishing facial oil" which is great for hydrating skin, I really need this as my skin is very dry and lately it's been even worse. You can apply this in the morning and in the evening.

The Proposal by Tasmina Perry £7.99
I think this is a really great idea, this is the first chapter of 'The Proposal' a romantic novel. I think it's really great that the box gives you the opportunity to read the book and see if it's something you would like to carry on reading! It's also great for a quick plane ride! 

If you would like to sign up to Birchbox, you can get £5 off with the code  BBX5LIPSTICK which is valid until 5th September!
