July Birchbox


As much as I hate getting excessive amount of creams in my Birchbox, I loved this months! I'm trying my best (but not very well) to get myself on a health kick, so this coconut water is a good start to trying new things out. 


First off is the Gilchrist & Soames Mineral Bath which is £11.25. You pour it under the hot tap for a relaxing bath! It doesn't have much of a fragrance which is good for my sensitive skin.


Whish Lavender Body Butter £14.50. It soaks into skin really well and doesn't leave a greasy residue after, which is always a put off for me as I have no patience. The lavender smell isn't too overpowering either, it smells similar to the Laura Mercier vanilla body butter with a lavender tinge to it!


Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo £8.95. This smells a bit like hand cream so I am slightly dubious if I want my hair to smell like that, but the last Weleda I tried made my hair feel like a dream.. so I will see.

Edit: after trying this I just couldn't get a lather to wash it out! My hair just felt dry afterwards.. I'll not be using it again!


I have been thinking of trying a eye cream for a while as I'm always squinting rather than putting sunglasses on! I've tried a few Balance Me products and they work well with my sensitive skin so I'm excited to try the Wonder Eye Cream £20. Hopefully this will make my eyes look less tired!


I love purple lipstick so I was really excited to see this Laqa & Co. Lip Lube Pencil £14. I've tried some of their lipsticks before and wasn't too convinced as they had a horrible taste to them, but this one is amazing! It has a slight minty smell to it which is refreshing to put on your lips and it is nice and glossy. Even though they say you can use this without a lip liner I'll be using one in the future when wearing this.

And the last goodie I got was Vita Coco Natural Coconut Water in Lemonade £2.29. I've been meaning to join in on the craze, but I've always been scared to try it (I'm picky). It's not actually as bad as I thought it would be! The lemonade dulls out the coconut taste, it's only the thicker texture that reminds me it isn't just lemonade. It is best to drink ice cold though as it wasn't so nice when it was warm (yuk!).

What beauty boxes do you get and what is your favourite?
