Knowing that Birchbox had teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar for the May beauty box, I was super excited to receive my May Birchbox!
When I did get the box I instantly loved the print on the box, so bright and tropical looking perfect for Summer! It really has the Harper’s Bazaar signature style and essence of the Beauty Director Sophie Bloomfield. Here’s my review on the May Birchbox ♥
Beauty Protector, Shampoo and Conditioner – first of all, I love the fact that there was a shampoo AND conditioner in this box, so there’s an actual set! This little set claims to do a lot and so far it has left my hair feeling so soft, silky and nourished. The formula is very natural but it still smells lovely. They are a Birchbox exclusive and £14 each for full size versions.
Soigné Nail Laquer – a non-toxic nail polish that doesn’t chip easily…amazing! You get the full size in the May box which is £11 to buy, take a look at the gorgeous colours on offer.
Liz Earle Beauty Co Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – this has quickly become a cult cleanser and it does feel lovely to use. Unfortunately, I tried the whole Liz Earle 3-step just before Christmas and had a break out. I was really disappointed as I love the thought of using this brand and the packaging is so pretty but sometime some skincare brands are just not meant for you. However, I am in the minority as so many people have used it and loved it! The full size version is £13.25
Benefit Cosmetics, They’re Real Mascara – this is the product I was most excited about this month! I have been wanting to try this mascara for ages as there has been so much hype about it! All the reviews and hype have been spot on, this mascara really does live up to expectations. Most importantly, it is not clumpy and still looks natural. The full size version is £19.50
Aromatherapy Associates, Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil – this gives you a burst of energy in the morning, it left me feeling like I had just been to a spa and the aromatic scent lasts all day on your skin. You can buy the full size version for £39
