Birchbox - Global StrikersSaturday, June 14, 2014
This month's theme is Brazil. As a certain football tournament is kicking off in Brazil, Birchbox decided to take inspiration from the World Cup and relate some of the products with the event.
Inside there are 6 products - one of them is a non beauty related, Brazil-inspired flip-flop keyring.
Beautyblender + Blendercleanser Solid - £16
An egg shaped make-up sponge to ensure a flawless base. Plus a solid soap to clean it. I do not have a much experience with make-up sponges but basically this is how it goes: wet sponge, squeeze out water, dot into foundation, stipple over the skin. To clean: wet it, stroke across the soap, lather, rinse in warm water, air dry. I have been always using my fingers, foundation goes soft and melty and is much better to apply to the skin. I am excited to try it out anyway!
Caudalie Divine Oil - £18
A delicately fragranced dry oil that sinks in fast, hydrates skin and leaves a silky sheen. This oil includes patented antioxidant grape-seed polyphenols and exotic oils- grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan - to moisturise and protect. It can be applied to the face, limbs, nails and hair. Rub a few drops between the palms of your hands and smooth it all over the body. I think I've already mentioned a thousand times how much I love oils.
Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick - £9.90
A sheer, glossy lipstick infused with moisturising cherry oil to leave lips lusciously soft. I have already used it and it is a nice pink colour with non-drying elements, leaves lips soft, comfortable and extremely creamy.
OPI Nail Lacquer The Brazil Collection - £11.95
Inspired by Brazil's tropical rainforests and sandy beaches. A cute mini polish with cheery colour and perfect to match the sunny weather.
Coola Classic Face SPF30 Cucumber - £26
This is a small sample size sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun's harsh rays with cucumber-scented SPF for face. Bonus - no white residue! It can be applied over the face and neck after moisturiser and before make-up or even used alone.
And here is the lovely Havaianas-inspired keyring.
I love these little cards Birchbox added to the box. They are full of tips, ideas and encouragement.
