Birchbox - Dive In.

Birchbox has switched things up again by getting rid of the box completely this month. Instead replacing it with a dove grey neoprene bag with a pop of neon colour. They're chosen at random from pink, yellow, turquoise and orange.

I actually really rather like this bag, I would probably use it for things such as shampoo and the like when travelling. If it leaked it would be easy to rinse it out and make it clean again.


Merci Handy - Love & Hand Cleansing Gel - Black Vanilla
£2.99 / 30ml
It's kind of funny to me that I received this as a few days before getting my box I used up some of my Birchbox points. To make the order up to £30 I popped this in my basket, the exact same scent. Good job I like it since I now have two! It reminds me a lot of ones from Bath And Body Works, same shape bottle they used to use and it has those funny little beads inside. As for the scent, it's pretty inoffensive, not overly sweet. Leaves hands feeling fresh and clean without any kind of sticky residue.

Voya - Silky By Nature Shampoo
£18 / 200ml
I haven't had a chance to use this yet and I wasn't overly excited about it until I smelt it. Mmm yes! It's packed full of oils such as sweet basil, lemon peel, lime, and mandarin just to name a few. This gives it a deliciously zingy scent which feels really uplifting. The vitamins and minerals it contains help to keep hair healthy and shiny.

Anatomicals - The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub
£3.99 / 200ml
I've used Anatomicals in the past and have enjoyed their products, from the puns to the packaging. It all seems to fit together and give an overall more fun vibe. I tend to me more careful with exfoliators as the dangers of microbeads have once again hit headlines. I researched to make sure and this doesn't contain any, instead, it uses walnut shell to exfoliate. It comes with a pink grapefruit scent so it's definitely one of those that should be used in the morning.


Nude - Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly
£32 / 100ml
The sample size of this is crazy small which is understandable since it's rather expensive. I haven't used it yet but I have a feeling it won't even cover half of my moon face!

Marcelle - Waterproof Eyeliner - Mulberry
£10.50 / 1.2g
There was a choice between a brown and a purple liner. I very rarely wear brown so I opted for the Mulberry shade. It's a dusky greyed purple but when the light hits it you get a wonderful purple shimmer that's almost hard to capture. Once on this liner stays put until you remove it with a cleansing balm at the end of the day.

Amie Skincare - Morning Clear Purifying Face Wash
£4.95 / 150ml
Recently I've been a lot stricter with my skincare routine so I'm trying not to disturb it too much. This cleanser is soap free but still gives you perfectly refreshed skin. It's full of active ingredients such as mayblossom and elderflower, helping with problematic skin. Along with cocoa seed butter and sweet almond oil that keeps skin hydrated.
