Unboxing Birchbox x Boden April 2017

08:30




I was so excited to receive this months Birchbox as its my birthday month and with Birchbox collaborating with Boden I knew it would be one to subscribe to. The box is so beautiful, its my favourite Birchbox design ever!

The first item in this months box is this Luseta Soothing & Nourishing Keratin Conditioner 40ml. I don't usually get excited about conditioner but I like the fact that this one has Keratin in it. I'm going to use this on my next trip away as its very travel friendly.



The next item is this Baïja Paris Crème Moana in Fleur de Tiarè Body Cream 30ml. I don't really enjoyed the body creams in beauty boxes as I already have so many. But this does have some moisturising ingredients: jojoba wax, coconut oil and shea butter so I will give it a try. It does have a lovely scent.


Next is the Manna Kadar Cosmetics High Definition Powder full size. I can't believe this is full size (worth £27) as I have eye shadow's bigger than this powder. This powder is what I'm most excited to try but I am disappointed in the size. Also in the box is the ModelCo Eye Define Crayon Liner full size. I was hoping for the Nip & Fab Colour Correctors that are in some boxes so was disappointed to receive this instead. I like the fact that this liner is a twist up pencil as it will make application so much easier.


Finally is this Polaar Ice Pure Gentle Scrub with Arctic Cotton 25ml. I've never come across artic cotton as an ingredient before so I've very intrigued to try this. Its apparently known for its moisturising and detoxifying properties. So it should exfoliate and moisturise skin which sounds amazing.


I had high hopes for this box but I was slightly disappointed to receive the body cream and eye liner but I'm excited to try the other products especially the powder! I may do some full reviews for some of the products. Also there is a £10 voucher for Boden which I've already used!

  1. I'm sorry to say that, but I would be kinda disappointed with this box. The only thing I would be excited for is the powder. You're lucky to receive the full size. ;)

  8. I have been a subscriber to Birchbox but I've always been a little underwhelmed so I canceled it. I love their colorful packaging though!

  10. So sad this box does not meet your expectations, I would be disappointed too! The powder is the most exciting part but yet, it is smaller than usual powders.
    On the bright side, I love their colourful boxes, so perfect for spring!!
