I remember seeing the name of Birchbox in my feed from various beauty news websites and blogs I follow on Facebook. I lost it a bit when I found the Birchbox stand at Selfridges and I did not hesitate one bit on getting one. There were 6 product categories that would go in the box. For each category there were 4 options and you had to pick only one. This was rather difficult as I already purchased some of the products available before and some were not suitable for my age (face creams).

You just have to go to the cashier and they give you a box together with a list of the products you can choose. Then you go around the and pick what you want, and come back to pay. The price for the box is fixed and you can pick only 1 product from each category. Some products are in full sizes – such as the nail polish I picked, some are in sample size – like the lip tint. I tried to pick products/brands that I never tried of heard of before.
I use the Body Gel from time to time and it has a strong lavender refreshing smell. I use the night cream every night and it’s perfect for my type of face. That anti frizz cream – I think I have to put way more, or at least half of the tube because I have seen no difference with a little bit of it.
The day before I got the Birchbox, I just found out and tried a lipstain at Benefit so I thought I could give it a try. For the nails, I found no new colours except this this vibrant purple that I love! In the last category – Beauty Bonus – I saw this new lavender spray and for some nights after that I sprayed it on my pillow and it was really refreshing falling asleep.
