August Birchbox

I'm never overly happy with a birchbox when it comes loaded with creams and oils as I rarely ever use them. But I do love the eyeshadow I received which I'll mention below. But I must admit I cannot complain about trying new products that I otherwise will never have tried!

First off is Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect £20.00, I've tried their non aerosol hairspray before which I loved! This is basically a detangler which you use on wet hair to comb through and dry. I'm excited to test this to compare it to the Beauty Protector spray, as I'm addicted to that which will be hard to beat! 

Next is the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator £26, which is a face exfoliator. It doesn't have a scent to it which is perfect for anyone that has sensitive skin (especially me). If you have ever had Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliator, this is the budget version and it also doesn't have the lemony scent Dr. Brandt has. I used this for the first time last night and my faces redness had went down immediately and my skin felt refreshed. I need to give this a couple of weeks to see if it makes a difference though.

Supergoop Daily Correct CC cream £32 is a smooth cream with a tinted colour. I got Light-Medium, which is still a little too dark for my ice white skin. It leaves a beautiful dewy finish but doesn't have much coverage, CC creams are perfect for holidays if you don't want to wear a lot of make up. It also has an SPF of 35 so it will protect your skin from sun damage too.

Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Oil £58, for me this is a little out my budget if I was to buy it for my skincare routine. I have oily skin so oil based products aren't always best for me to use. It is meant to be used after cleansing morning and afternoon, the vitamins in it will leave your skin refreshed and healthy.

Lastly I got the Wild About Beauty Créme Eyeshadow in Buster £13. I'm glad I got this shade as I love neutral colours and especially a light gold to finish off an eye look. This has a lovely consistency and doesn't feel gloopy or sticky. 

Another thing I received was a tester chapter page for the book 'The Proposal' by Tasmina Perry £7.99. I'm yet to look at this, but I have seen it advertised in Cosmo so it must be worth a read!

Overall I do quite like this box, I only wish I could choose to not receive things I don't use as I hate wasting them! What did you think of this months box? Did you get anything different to me?
