Testing out a Birchbox...

My First Birchbox

My First Birchbox
I've always heard about Beauty Box's and read many a post on the unboxing of the infamous Glossybox and Birchbox (which you can subscribe to here), yet I've never had the chance to try them. This was until the lovely people from PuRe Public Relations seen that I was lusting after a Beauty Blender in one of my beauty wishlists and offered to send me one to try out as they'd featured it in their March Birchbox. How lovely of them? Well, you should of seen my face when I received the full March box after I thought I was only receiving the Beauty Blender, I was over the moon! So I just want to say a big thank you to PuRe as I was thoroughly shocked and truly appreciate it! Let's see what's inside...


Wow! I can't believe how many samples these Beauty Box's actually give you. For a monthly subscription the cost is a mere £12.95 which I think is fab considering all the new products and brands you get to try out! I obviously ate the Lindor chocolates within a couple of minutes and gave the Fragrance to my Molton Brown loving Mother, so down goes two items! I'm really excited to try the Sanctuary face mask and the gel liner as I've never picked one up. As I have tons of samples at the moment, I'm thinking about doing a 'First Impressions' Series, what do you think? Would that be something you'd like to see?

Thanks for reading, and please let me know if you want to see the 'First Impressions' Series!

  20. I've often wondered about boxes such as Birchbox...I suppose when you break it down £12.50 is pretty good for all this! Still I'm at the stage where I'd probably just save the money for stuff I'm dying to try though! But it's a really interesting idea, hopefully eventually I'll try one out!
