Last week I signed back up to Birchbox and I’ve been waiting patiently for my box to arrive. It turned up yesterday shortly after my Glossybox and I’m pretty pleased with the products in my box. When I signed up I was given the option to choose a box design out of two boxes but I was given the one I didn’t choose. Not that I’m bothered though. Ha.

Manna Kadar – Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush, Highlighter, Eyeshadow | RRP £15*
Sorry for the lame photograph, I still haven’t bought a new camera! This is the first time I have ever heard or owned a product from Manna Kadar. The Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush, Highlighter and Eyeshadow is a gorgeous shade, almost bronze. I swatched a little bit of it on the back of my hand and so far I absolutely love it. I haven’t used it on my face yet as I am having a lazy, make-up-free PJ day so I will post a full review when I get dolled up.
Polaar – IcyMagic Instant Eye Contour Energiser | RRP £22*
Okay, so I have been excited about this product from Polaar, it is the IcyMagic Instant Eye Contour Energiser which helps to eliminate puffiness, dark circles and stimulates eyelash growth and also contains Siberian ginseng. I tried this out before and although I’m happy with the results, I had the fright of my life when I was trying to lubricate the ‘ball’ by squeezing it a little – the metal ‘ball’ popped and nearly put a hole in my ceiling and cause me to have heart failure, ha ha. So, now it is ball-less and to be honest it’s actually easier to apply underneath my eyes as the ball felt ‘stuck’ and didn’t roll much when applied. Will post a full review soon.
Dr. PawPaw – Original Clear Balm | RRP £6.95*
This is my first product from Dr. Paw Paw and I have been wanting to try their products out for ages. This is a 10 ml tube of the multipurpose balm which is fragrance-free and cruelty free. It’s also a great healing balm which can be used literally anywhere on the lips, skin and hair. I’ve only used a little on my chapped lips so far and it has soothed them and made them soft again! I’ve yet to try it on my skin and hair! I would repurchase this again! I think it is £6.95 for the 25 ml.
Sand & Sky – Brilliant Skin, Purifying Pink Clay Mask | RRP £39.90*
Already used this Purifying Pink Clay Mask from Sand & Sky and I do really like it. It’s enriched with vitamin A and is also a cruelty-free product as well. In my box was a small 13g sample which is enough for about 2 maybe 3 face masks. I had a pamper sesh last night and used this mask with some cucumber on my eyes! Complete bliss! I would buy the full size but at £39.90, it is a bit out of my budget so I’m not sure if I’ll buy it again. I have added it to my wish-list though!
Benefit – They’re Real! Doube The Lip in Pink Thrills | RRP £16.50*
I would have loved this but unfortunately Birchbox forgot to put it into my box. I didn’t even realise it was missing until I read the ‘what’s in your box’ leaflet. Not to worry though, I have emailed Birchbox and I’m sure they’ll send me one out pretty soon.
Lord & Berry Mascara & Eyeliner Duo
When I signed back up to Birchbox, I was asked to enter my email address to receive a free promo code for a special treat. The code they give me was for this Lord & Berry – Mascara and Eyeliner Duo which I will definitely be using. I love Lord & Berry and own a couple of their products already. Will post a review soon.
*RRPS correspond to full size products.
Also included in this months box was a 15% discount code to use at oliverbonas.com. I got some fab little stickers too which I’ve put on my laptop!
