Underwhelming. That’s all I can think of to describe this box.
From the rather ‘meh’ design (I couldn’t decide between the two rubbish designs so let Birchbox decide) – it’s y’know, pink.
Then there’s the unoriginal content. Which considering that it’s in collab with a magazine at which there have been some big chances in line up and ideas, I expected more from.
Inside is just not exciting me.
In haircare, Bumble and bumble Prep (RRP £18)- not even remotely sure what I’m prepping for…oh it’s expensive leave-in conditioner.
Then there’s Klorane’s dry shampoo (RRP £8) – could not be more excited *eyeroll emoji here*
Onto make up and first up it’s Benefit’s Hoola (RRP £24.50) a bronzer that makes it look like I haven’t washed my face (that’s all bronzers fyi – I am really pale).
Now skincare – L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream (RRP £8 and up) which ok, I do actually like but good grief this sample is tiny.
Finally, and in case you don’t believe that beauty boxes copy each other, a brush cleaner (Birchbox branded £5) just like last month’s Glossybox. Wow. This is the only full size item – I got mine for 99p on eBay.
Next month we get to choose a lipstick shade but for 2018 I think I’m going to be choosing a new beauty box.
If I were Vogue’s Lifestyle and Beauty Editor I’d be tidying up my CV right about now. If someone could direct Edward Enninful or Anna Wintour my way, that’d be dandy *wink emoji here*
Now where’s my intern??
