Subscription boxes are such fun (and cheap) ways of trying new products without having to dish out a fortune. Birchbox recently reached out to me and asked if they could send me a box for me to try out and write about, so obviously I couldn't resist some new goodies! August's box was a collaboration with Etsy, so my box was designed by Holly Maguire and it came with a little leaflet telling me about everything that was in my box.
CLE Melting Lip Powder in 'Red Cherry'
I was soooo excited to see this, as I'm really interested in powder products for your lips. I was a bit apprehensive about the colour at first because bright lips really aren't for me, but the lip powder is only meant to be a tint and once I tried it on I fell in love! It's really wearable and the red definitely compliments my skin tone. My only issue is that the tube is a little messy when you remove the applicator, so be careful!
Rituals Foaming Shower Gel
I love Rituals, so I was over the moon to see this in my Birchbox! It smells amazing and I'm never left disappointed with Rituals' products, so I already knew what I was going to get. I definitely smelled fresh after using this and my lemon shampoo from Lush!
A big thank you to Birchbox for sending me August's box for me to try out. Do you guys subscribe to any monthly boxes? Let me know!
