So this months box was exciting as we had the option to choose between 2 full size John Frieda Products (Luxurious Volume In-Shower Treatment, or Frizz Ease Anti-Frizz Primer). As you can tell from the photos above, I decided to go for the anti-frizz primer! But we will talk more about that later..
Birchbox also collaborated with Millie Mackintosh this month, meaning we received ANOTHER full sized product! yay! And if you don’t know who Millie Mackintosh is, she took part in the first few series of Made in Chelsea, and if you don’t watch Made in Chelsea, well, you should. You can call me sad I don’t mind.
Anyway, on to the important stuff!
John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Anti-Frizz Primer – £9.99 FULL SIZE
I decided to go for this option over the Volume In-Shower Treatment, because as I have said on numerous occasions, I get my hair washed at work about twice a week! And when I do wash it at home I don’t have time for In-Shower Treatments! However the idea is really good and if like a normal person I washed my hair at home, I would have gone for this option. My hair isn’t frizzy at all luckily, but I thought this Anti-Frizz Primer would work well for me before I blow-dry my hair. So I will definitely get use out of this when washing and drying my hair at home!
Nails Inc Nail Polish in ‘Oxford Street – £14.00
I was happy to see this miniature nail polish included in this months box, because I have recently had my acrylic nail extensions removed, so when my nails are back in good condition I will be experimenting with some more nail colours at home! I would describe this shade as a ‘coffee’ colour!
ELEMIS Hydra-Nourish Night Cream – £43.00
I wasn’t ecstatic about this product being in my box, because I just have so many creams and I like to stick to my skincare routine. However I do like ELEMIS as a brand and I might save this miniature for travelling. It comes with a hefty price tag, so I am expecting big things!
LOC X Millie Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil in Bohemian Rose – £9.00 FULL SIZE
So this is the product that Birchbox and Millie Mackintosh made together and I really like it! The colour is beautiful as you can see in the swatch, and the gloss finish is lovely! I am very impressed and will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this lip pencil!
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – £45.00
Again, I own so many skincare products that I love, I wasn’t exactly over the moon about receiving this. Like I said earlier, I will probably save it and use when travelling, as it is a handy miniature size! This also is quite a pricey product so I’m sure it is very good.
Most of the products in this box will get a lot of use, just a shame about receiving so many creams, as I really don’t need them! What did you guys get in your Birchbox this month? I’d love to hear your opinions!
