BirchBox Review

Hey guys, I hope all is well. Let’s welcome BirchBox to our Beauty Boxes review series! To read all the previous beauty box reviews, please look under the Beauty Tab for Beauty Box Series. I am so excited to finally review BirchBox which is one of the most subscribed monthly beauty boxes in the UK! I got the July Box and a special discount code which gave me another box for free! So in this review, I will be talking about two boxes, July and March!

Verdict- I have been waiting to review BirchBox for a long time, I never took the plunge because I wasn’t sure if the products will be suitable for my skin tone. I did it this month because of the 2 for 1 offer. I was slightly disappointed when I got my box, maybe it was the small box size but the packaging was really nice. Everything came in a drawstring bag which will be perfect for travelling. In terms of products, I got two full sizes in each box plus sample sizes. The product selection for the July Box didn’t excite me, I got the option of choosing between two John Frieda Products.  The Lip Pencil is described as suitable for everyone but it looks chalky against my skin tone.

I was supposed to get the June box as part of the offer but got the March Box instead which I don’t mind because I find it more exciting than the July Box. I am happy to receive the NUXE product as it’s on my list of brands to try this year. I have used the Yes to Carrots face wipes before so I am actually looking forward to the Yes to Cucumbers wipes. The Shadow Stick is a nice shade. My lips don’t need any more plumping lol so the Lip Tint will be given away. The CC Body Cream has a lot of shimmer and a coconut scent.

Overall, I think they are good value for money but I wish it came with more full-size products. I wasn’t as excited as I thought I would be with BirchBox, which is a shame because I have been waiting for a while to try it (I was excited to finally try BirchBox but not as excited about the boxes and products).  Maybe it’s the selection of products or I thought the box would be bigger, the box is so small.

What do you guys think?

The format for the Beauty Box Series is always the same, I look for prices of the items where possible and compare them to the price of the box to see whether they are value for money or not. Actual product reviews will always come later.
