August Birchbox: The Beauty Junkie Box

This is now the 5th Birchbox I've received and I'm still so excited when I get my hands on this box every month, it's definitely become my favourite beauty box. Each month Birchbox have a different theme for their boxes, you may remember last month was the Birchbag, which I loved. This month's box is the 'Beauty Junkie' box, celebrating the Beauty Junkie in all of us. As you can see the box design has little Birchbox beauty emojis (there are also stickers in the box!) which I find so cute. As usual, there are 6 deluxe samples in the box and this month there are also two make up items included. Want to see what they were? Read on...

The product I was probably most excited by was the Rituals Fortune Scrub. I've heard many good things about Rituals and all their products but have never tried anything of theirs before. This scrub is a mild cleansing scrub that smells absolutely heavenly, it is enriched with Sweet Orange and Cedar and transforms on contact with water into a silky foaming exfoliating cream. I really can't wait to try this out!

Next is a product I already have and received in another beauty box, the Look Fantastic box in fact. However it's such a good product I actually don't mind having another. The Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo is a detoxifying shampoo that is made for getting rid of dirt and product build up making your hair feel brand new, soft and refined.

The next product is from a brand I've been dying to try for a long time. They are known for their quirky packaging and I've also read that their products are amazing. The Balm Cosmetics Balm Desert Bronzer/Blush sample comes in a teeny tiny booklet-like packaging which is perfect for travelling as you don't have to worry about any damage whatsoever. This is a bronzer/blush hybrid and on my skin tone, it is most definitely a bronzer. It has a fade resistant formula to give skin a fresh and sun-kissed look. I can't wait to try it out and this will probably be my go to bronzer for my upcoming holiday!

A brand I've got to try quite a few products from with thanks to beauty boxes like Birchbox is Lord & Berry. Featured this month is their Blush in 'Lotus'. I own no blush like this, as it is pretty dark and I'm not really sure how it will look but I'm excited to give it a go. However I really dislike the sample packaging, knowing how clumsy I am, I will probably have this smashed in no time.

A couple of weeks before you receive your box, Birchbox release teasers of what products you could receive. The first teaser this time round featured the Huygens Exfoliating Cream. I loved the sound of it so I was hoping I would receive it so as you can imagine, I was very excited when I opened my box and saw this. This cream is so lightweight I actually thought the pot was empty but no, it was completely full. Containing rice powder particules, this exfoliating cream works to purify and lift away dead skin cells without any irritation whatsoever. It also leaves the skin feeling soft, illuminated and hydrated.

Last but not least is a product I was really intrigued by and have since tested out. The Formula 10.0.6 Overnight Success contains 21 clear single use patches that you apply to blemishes overnight. The patches contain natural antiseptic ingredients such as tea tree and grapeseed and work overnight to reduce redness, irritation and inflammation. Having used these already, I can safely say that they work brilliantly. I had two very sore, red blemishes on my chin that were driving me crazy, the next morning the redness had calmed and the soreness had massively reduced. These patches are only £2.95 so I'm definitely considering purchasing these when I run out.

If you wish to join Birchbox, you can do so using my link here. We'll both get £5 to spend in the Birchbox shop too which is fantastic. That is one thing I love about Birchbox, not only do you get great boxes through your door each month but each time you are rebilled for the next box or review the products you receive you earn points which in turn can be built up to spend in the shop. I'm nearing £30 now and I'm trying to save up to at least £50 so I can have a little spree! Can't wait for that!
