birchbox ireland blog review
I am behind on all my blog posts and I know it makes literally no sense to be blogging about the July Birchbox* (sent to me) near the end of August when I have the August Birchbox (Birchbag?) chilling here next to me but ahh, I was so excited for this box. It was the box Millie Mackintosh (Made in Chelsea anyone?) partnered up with them for, and ever since I saw it on Instagram, I knew I needed it. Millie even designed her own exclusive lip shades for LOC purely for July's box. Everything down to the design of the box was completely adorable and screamed Summer. The products, to me anyway, were all perfect for that mini heatwave we were having a few weeks back. You know the one where it was super hot but it was raining at the same time and you didn't know if you should just pack it all in and buy an umbrella and throw on some sunglasses? Yeh, that one. Crazy weather aside, lets get on to crazy hair and the absolute lifesaver that is the John Frieda Anti Frizz Primer. A product I had never heard of until it arrived in my Birchbox last month, but definitely a welcome addition to my hair care regime.
Long time readers will know that my hair gets a lil out of control when it's humid and I've found that using the John Frieda Anti Frizz Primer has been making quite the difference when it comes to my hair. I want to do a full review on this product so I'm not giving you guys any more thoughts on this (evil I know), but it was my favourite product from the July Birchbox and just reinforces my thoughts on how monthly beauty boxes are great for introducing you to new products.
The Millie lipstick from LOC was also a fave because it was such a pretty pink shade. I didn't expect much because it was a lip 'crayon' and they can be a little hit and miss, but I was pleasently surprised and being a massive Millie fan, I'm happy to have something designed by the kween herself.
As for the other products, I couldn't get full use of them. I have gel nails so the nail polish was a no, but held out quite well on my toe nails. The skin care would have interfered with the skin care 'five step' system I'm using right now so I couldn't give them a fair trial.
For the John Frieda & the lip crayon, the overall cost of the box was outweighed and I was pretty chuffed with what I received, and from what I saw online, so were most subbbies.
What do you guys think? Monthly beauty boxes, yay or nay?
(Birchbox is being sent to me to consider for review, this has not impacted my opinion in the slightest.)
