I seem to be running a little behind on the beauty box reviews but hey, I'm getting them done. Even if it is a little late. The mini reviews might be helpful to someone out there. And how I could I resist writing about this beautifully designed box?
For July Birchbox teamed up with Millie Macintosh to create a summer infused box. Along with an exclusive lip shade.
John Frieda - Frizz Ease - Forever Smooth Anti-Frizz Primer
£9.99 / 100ml
I think along with most other people, I'm not a fan of my natural hair. It's wavy and not in a nice way so I straighten it. But once the weather turns humid or it begins to rain it starts getting frizzy. This helps to not only protect against heat but with the addition of coconut oil, it helps keep hair more smooth and manageable.
Caudalie - Polyphenol C15 Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Anti-Wrinkle Protect Fluid
£29 / 40ml
That couldn't be a longer name for a product if it tried! This helps stimulate cell renewal whilst helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Whilst I won't be using it for that purpose, the fact that it has SPF and smells like oranges means it's something that I will gladly smother my face in. It can't just be me that hates having anything on my face that I don't like the smell of?!
Thermaliv - Micellar Lotion
£12.90 / 100ml
Not the most exciting thing but it's a handy travel size. Micellar waters were something that really took off last year but I don't tend to use them unless I'm feeling really sleepy and just need to get my makeup off stat. It doesn't take off hardcore makeup but if you're just wearing a little it seems to be ok. It has a light, clean and fresh scent to it.
LOC x Millie - Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil - Bohemian Rose
£9 / 2.5g
I'm really not a big fan of lipgloss in the traditional sense but I can get on board with glossy lipsticks. This pencil is packed full of hydrating ingredients along with being cruelty and paraben free. I feel like this is a universal shade, it's not too pale and not too bright. It's a lovely rosy pink shade with very fine shimmer. This is the perfect addition for just keeping in your bag for little touch ups on the go.
Nails Inc - Nail Polish - Sloane Street
£14 / 14ml
When I first started this blog I was a big fan of Nails Inc. I went off them when they started raising their prices and finding better formulas at a cheaper price point. I haven't tried this yet but Sloane Street is a brightened blue-based pink.
