All the right Mermaid Vibes – the August Birchbox

This months Birchbox is stunning and the box’s contents are a perfect match! Five products, carefully matched with my profile. What more could you want?

When I received my parcel and opened up the packaging, I did not know what to say. Look at it, it is beautiful. Lovely colours, you can’t help but feel like a mermaid when you see it and after all as Birchbox say “when it comes to their beachy waves, shimmering eyelids, and glistening skin, mermaids are serious summer beauty goals.”

So, let’s take a look at this months products!

The first product that caught my eye was Birchbox’s beauty treat – the full sized Spectrum collections make-up brush. I have one word for the brush, and that is ‘perfect.’ The colour is beautiful, like an ombre on the bristles which may I add are unbelievably soft! A lovely product to be added to the box – I would love to see more of these so we are able to build up a collection. I would give this product 9/10.

The second product that caught my eye was the Nuxe, Huile Prodigieuse Or which is a golden multi-purpose dry oil for your face, body and hair. This product looks beautiful, shiny and golden. It also smells divine and least of all it looks fabulous!! I use it on my cheek bones and to define my cheeks (I have chubby cheeks so why not embrace them with gold!) Obviously it has an oily texture, so a little goes a long way. But this product is a MUST in my everyday  make up routine! As of yet I have only used it on my face, BUT you can also smooth it down your legs and run it through your hair. I am very interested in putting it in my hair – so I’ll let you know how it goes! I would give this product 9/10.

The third product in the box is the renewing mud mask by Whish. A lovely little product to apply before your make up one to two times per week. Considering it is a mud mask it is very lightweight. Now if you have sensitive skin like me only apply it for around 15-30 seconds (don’t want to be taking any rash risks!) So just rinse it off after that time, if not you can leave it on for up to two minutes! I would give this product 7/10.

The fourth product is LOC One & Done shadow stick in Rock Steady which is a light brown colour. Such a cleaver little product, and doesn’t require any tools. You just simply apply it on your eyelid and smudge with your finger. It creates the perfect smokey eye!! What more could a girl/ mermaid want!

Now, I am leaving my least favourite product until last. Unfortunately this product, for me was not great. It was Number 4 Sugar texturing spray. A big no no for me, my hair had a horrible texture after use. It is meant to create loose shiny waves without any crunch. This product was not for me, so I give it a 4/10.

Using the products from this months Birchbox I created a natural, glowing look!

So, that was my August Birchbox and I was very impressed with the products and the box. Can’t wait to see what next month brings!

Thanks for reading,
