August Birchbox

If you are going away in the next couple of months this birchbox is the one for you, not only does it have the clear zip lock bag which is perfect for hand luggage, the products inside are also perfect if your going to be lounging on the beach or around the pool.

Wild About Beauty Creme Eyeshadow
I only mentioned a few weeks ago that I am currently loving creme eye shadows and this one is not an exception. This colour would be absolutely perfect with a golden tan and is just the right shade so you can wear it day or night. I haven’t worn it enough to comment on the longevity but the application is brilliant, it glides on so well. 
This is the first time I have heard about the Wild About Beauty range by Louise Redknapp but I am going to treat myself to to a few more items partly because I do think the packaging is lovely.
It’s only been recently that I have noticed how long my hair has actually grown over the past year, which means I have also noticed how tangled it can get especially after a day at the beach or by the pool. This leave in conditioner / detangler has got quite a strong smell to it (I quite like it, my boyfriend not so much!) but I have found my hair does seem easier to tame after washing my hair and using this product. After a few days my hair still feels soft and doesn’t dry out like it has done after using a couple of different leave in conditioners. 
I’m not sure if I would buy this again as it is not the cheapest of leave in conditioners but as a sample product it is awesome.
I really like this exfoliator, I have only used it a couple of times in the past few days but it does seem to make my face feel a lot smoother. You do not need to use a lot of this product and a big plus is it does not have the larger exfoliating beads, (seriously, I can never get them all off!), so you don’t end up trying to apply make up after a shower and ending up rubbing exfoliator beads into your face or your make up brushes.
I was so happy to see this in my birchbox this month for 2 reasons, one being I have just ran out of my current night cream which I LOVE! but just cannot afford to purchase again right now as it is £90. Number 2, I have heard a lot about the Nude products so I have been really looking forward to being able to try their products. 
This treatment oil is lovely, I have been using it twice a day for the past week and my face does feel really good. I don’t particularly have dry or dehydrated skin so I do think my mum would definitely benefit from this more than I would as her skin is slightly dryer than mine but until I am able to get my normal night cream this will just have to do!

Unfortunately I have not been able to try this CC Cream yet, this is something I would use if I was going to the beach or pool but I have been working everyday since I received these and I would rather use my normal foundation for work! I am definitely going to remember these for the next day out that requires minimal make up thought. 
I do love the packaging of this product, I’m not sure what it is but I just find it so cute, (but that could just be because of the sample size!). 
This is probably one of my favourite boxes I received over the past year as everything received is just perfect for this kind of year. If you haven’t signed up yet I would recommend it, either for yourself or a gift, as the products you receive each month are suited to your beauty profile, that you enter on sign up, and I just think it is such good value for your money.
