Birchbox | Inside the August 2014 Box

This is only my second ever beauty box, and this months Birchbox has a lot to live up too. I fell head over heals for the Birchbox and Harper's Bazaar collaboration box. This month’s theme is Away We GoAs, obviously designed for those of you jetting off. And not so much for us girls still here in our usual routines. Oh well, I like to feel summery regardless. As usual there is cards inside with lots of hints and tips, and a run down of all the products in the box, which I am forever grateful for as there is always a few brands I've never heard of... And this is what is inside the August Birchbox

Liaison De Parfum | Sample | Full Size RRP £105 (ouch)

I almost didn't smell this, as I didn't want to fall in love and not be able to afford it. But this scent is lovely, but just not my cup of tea. I picked up the Sandalwood tones straight away and in my opinion overpowers the remainder of the other notes which include leather, cedar, Laban, bergamot, lemon, tangerine, immortelle, patchouli, iris, geranium and musk.

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect | Sample Size 30ml | Full Size RRP £20
Always handy to carry a leave in conditioner, especially when away to tame that tangled and unruly hair. Beaches trip can be thanked for this.

Supergoop Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream | Sample Size 3ml | Full Size RRP £32
This CC cream from the American brand, is a good amount of holiday skin coverage. Estee Lauder Double Wear would be too much for even me on holiday.

Birchbox | August 2014 Wild About Beauty Eyeshadow

Nude ProGenius Omega Treatment Oil | Sample Size | Full Size RRP £58

Oh. My. God. This is amazing. I've only used it twice, but this treatment is a saviour on my dry skin. Normally I steer clear of serums as I just think its a spot fest waiting to happen. But clearly I am wrong, and there will be tears when I finish this.   

Wild about Beauty Powder Eyeshadow | Olivia | Full Size RRP £13.00

Who knew that Louise Rednapp along with Kim Jacob had a make-up line? Well here is one of the powder eye shadows from their paraben free range and it’s a full sized product. Say hello to Wild About Beauty.

Lifestyle Extra | Chapter Sampler of the The Proposal by Tasmina Perry | £7.99

Slightly random, but here is a book chapter to read. I've actually read the book so this wasn't useful for me. But I would imagine it is a very clever way to get you engrossed and then buy the book. Which you should, its a fabulous book.

Overall I do love this box, but I don't think its quite as good as the Harper's Bazaar box I received a few months ago. 


Also, you can sign up to BirchBox and get £5 off your first box. Bargain. Just use this code - BBX5MASCARA
