I’ll be completely honest, the only reason I ordered a Birchbox was because of the promotion for the free Beauty Blender and cleanser for new subscribers. So I’ll be getting the £26 Beauty Blender and cleanser in addition to this box for the price of £12.95 (less £3.50 through Quidco), not bad if I do say so!
The theme for January is Women’s Health and although I don’t plan on subscribing for any more boxes after this (I am still trying to use up all the samples from when I got Glossybox), I thought this was a really good box and much better than the Glossybox offerings.
Birchbox Pilates Band-This was the Birchbox exclusive product, I am definitely a fan of Pilates workouts so might have to have a look on Fitness Blender to see if I can find some workouts that incorporate the band.
Stila Lip Glaze-These lip glazes seemed to get raved about all the time so excited to give this a go, looks a bit glittery for my liking though.
Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo-My hair is always in need of some extra hydration, especially in this cold winter weather so can’t wait to try this product out!
Dr. Jart+ Clear Away Gel-I love the Dr. Jart+ brand and was absolutely thrilled to see a full-sized product! The Clear Away Gel is a gentle exfoliator that refines pores and the texture of skin.
Embrace Matcha Green Tea-I was actually really excited about this sample. I love drinking all kinds of tea, but haven’t tried matcha yet, it’s packed with antioxidants and supposed to be really good for your health.
Agave Healing Oil Treatment-Probably the least exciting product in the box. I tried hair oils before, but they all seem a bit too heavy for my hair. I did just get my highlights done today so might use this to give my hair a bit of extra TLC.
Activbod Cooling Finish Lotion-This menthol packed lotion is supposed to help you re-energize after a workout. I’ve been really good with my New Year’s resolutions and have been doing Zumba 3 times a week so looking forward to trying this out after a post workout shower.
Finally, a little booklet was included with 12 healthy challenges to try, anything from tips to get more sleep to exercises to try with your Pilates band.
Overall, a really good box with some new products for me to try out! I think this was a really nice theme to have for January and the products really seem to fit in.
Have you tried any of these products before? Are you subscribed to any beauty boxes?
