The new year started with my fave Birchbox ever. I love stationery, almost as much as make up, and this month Birchbox teamed up with Ohh Deer, a British stationary brand. I have never heard of them, and now I know they also do a subscription box I am so tempted to subscribe. I love the design of the box so much. The colours are right up my street, it’s also very pretty and a perfect thing to brighten up your blue January.
So lets’s see what I got in this month’s box:
This box was sort of make up heavy and I don’t mind that at all. So first thing is a crayon blush from Lord and Berry. Having been given the choice I went for the pinkier shade, Camelia. I have never used crayon blush before, usually even stay away from creamy blushes, so I am excited to see how easy it is to blend and work with. Swatching it on my hand, it has a creamy texture and does blend out easy, so my hopes are definitely up.
Next item is a waterproof eyeliner from Marcelle. Now I use eyeliner basically everyday, I use the pencil ones usually on my tightline. It is lucky that this is waterproof because you need a waterproof eyeliner for your tightline for sure, otherwise it’ll disappear within an hour. This eyeliner has a soft texture, glides on my hand easily as I’m swatching it. It promises to be smudge resistant and to stay put all day. Intrigued! It says the colour of it is charcoal, but it is more dark gray than black, so it’ll definitely give you a softer less dramatic look, I expect. Still I can’t wait to try it!
Moving from make up bits to skincare, this box contains a night cream from Thermaliv. I like to stay away from night creams, because I find that they make my skin oilier, so leaving it clean after I take my make up off in the evening is the best thing to do for me. This night cream promises to hydrate your skin during the night when you can’t get enough sleep. I do get dry skin in this winter months, so I will give this a go, see how it works. It has a very light scent to it, and gets quickly absorbed in my hand as I try it out. I do hope it’ll work for me.
Moving from face to hair the next thing is a Keratin Smooth Conditioner by Luseta Beauty. It promises to moisture your hair, leaving it soft and shiny. This conditioner is good for damaged hair, which I almost always have, and supposed to work from inside out. Gonna try the next time I wash my hair as I have never been disappointed with and of the samples Birchbox has sent me hair-wise.
Lastly in the box is an Amazing Makeup Remover cloth by Afterspa. It does sound amazing as it says you only need warm water and the cloth to remove your makeup. I have to try it to be honest to believe it does work like that. Only downside is that you should wash it in the washing machine after every use, and I only do my laundry once a week, but wear makeup like 5 or 6 days of the week. But that’s just my issue really. Very very curios to see how it works!
They also included loads of stickers for bonus, love it!
So this was the first Birchbox of 2018! Hope you like this blog post and all the review of the products!
