Even Birchbox are on a health kick!

So this months Birchbox was based on a January health kick with Womens Health, so my box was full of skin care and hair care. Everything you would need to rejuvenate yourself after the Christmas period! I very rarely change up my skin care routine as it's crazily sensitive, but seeing as everything in this box isn't scented it will be great for my skin.

In this months box there was:

Philip Kingsley Flaky Shampoo £21 - I've tried a few of the Philip Kinsley shamppos/conditions and I've loved them all, they have all done exactly what they claim to. So receiving this I am a little excited to get using it. It's just a shame it's not exactly for my hair type seeing as I don't have flaky or itchy scalp. The Philip Kinsley Eslasticizer is an amazing product if you're after a intensive repair treatment for your hair.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum £45 - This product claims to even your skin tone, boost your skins radiance and moisturise your skin all at once. It is also oil free, so it will be great for me to apply before make up with having oily skin. You can use this on its own or under your average moisturiser after cleansing. This also doesn't have a scent so it will be good for anyone with sensitive skin.

HealGel Body £39.50 - I was secretly wishing this was solely for hands as they are what have suffered a lot for me this winter.. but it's a body lotion! It claims to have inflammatory ingredients that will calm and regenerate skin. It has a lovely gel texture to it and also doesn't leave a slimy residue, I hate creams that make my skin feel slimy afterwards! I've been using this for a few days and it's has so far been really good and has made some of my dry areas disappear. I'm a little sad there isn't a lot of this product as you can't really use it all over cause there would be none left!

activbod Feel Great Shower Concentrate £5.00 - This product is quite scented so I'm a little dubious to try it as I can't use any scented shower gels, it has a strong smells of green tea. It also has sea minerals in and almond oil, but the green tea definitely over powers that scent. This is supposed to be a post workout shower gel, but I'm not really sure what it claims to do apart from 'energise'.

Embrace Matcha Green Tea £24.99 - Matcha is supposed to be the new in superfood with more antioxidants then the average green tea. I'm not much of a hot drink drinker, even though you can add the powder into your smoothies or juice, but I gave it to my Mam to try instead as she loves green tea. You add 1/2 teaspoon into hot/cold water and drink, it is a really bright green when you stir it in and looks amazing! Well my Mam enjoyed it at least.

Stila Lip Glaze £15.00 - This is actually my first Stila product and  I was really excited when I actually received it in my box! I don't hear much about Stila products but I have always been intrigued to try them, so here is a first step towards that. I got the shade Gleam which is a light pink with glitter, this colour was 100% not up my street so I was quite glad when my friend at work gave me her Raspberry shade she didn't want! So in trying the shade I didn't actually receive in the box, but like better I love it. It doesn't leave a sticky residue on your lips like some glosses do and has a lovely pigment to it. One swipe is enough colour and lasts quite a few hours!

and last of all the Birchbox Pilates Band £7.99 - This is basically a resitance band but it's teeeny! You can use this around your ankles to try and tone your legs/calfs or around your arms too. In the tips they also say to use it whilst sitting at your desk at work, but I think I would get some funny looks!

Overall I wasn't too happy with this months box, as like I say a lot, I hate the overloads of creams etc. I would love to receive more make up orientated make up products. But the Stila lip glaze was the biggest perk and made me happy I got the January box. And the gloss paid for itself for the price of the Birchbox anyway!

  1. I think I'd prefer to receive make up products too but it does look like it has some nice products in!

    1. I do use the majority, it's just not as exciting getting a shower gel than what getting make up is like haha x
