I think my favourite product this month was the LAURA MERCIER BODY CREME. I always head towards the Mercier counter for the tester pots whenever I wander into the big department stores so I'm glad I've finally got my paws on it, albeit a little sample size one. It smells absolutely amazing and it makes my skin ridiculously smooth. I just need someone to buy me a big tub now...the balm cosmetics: how about them apples? is encased in some pretty fun packaging, I must say! I tend to warm towards coral shades on my cheeks, so 'Pie' is a little bright for me but I can definitely see myself dabbing it on my lips for a brighter pout. lord and berry kohl pencil is nice and handy to have on my person. I don't tend to wear eyeliner these days, because I find I'm quite sensitive to eye make-up, but this will be handy when I'm back at uni and stumbling around the bars. You know me, I'm a raving party animal!
color club nail polish in 'aquamarine azulino' is the perfect Spring / Summer shade so I'll definitely be rocking this in the months to come. Big thanks to Little Cub for applying it to her seriously long digits above! The yes to cucumbers facial wipes felt quite gentle on my skin and they're the perfect size to throw in my backpack. I always carry some form of wipe or tissue around with me because you never know when you'll need them. Lastly, the little lifestyle addition to the box this month was sweet coconut and vanilla propercorn. I've seen a lot of bloggers talk about this flavour because it's a little obscure. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to eat popcorn but I have a seasoned taste tester in the form of Little Cub who had the following to say: 'They taste sweet. I can taste the coconut but it's not overpowering. I don't mind these!'. Groundbreaking stuff, i think you'll agree.
At this stage, I wouldn't be able to justify a monthly subscription service due to my financial situation. However, I can definitely see why so many people do subscribe and I imagine it's a nice little surprise to look forward to each month. I was also pretty impressed by the packaging and I'll definitely be reusing it. I'd definitely recommend Birchbox to beauty buffs and I think it'd be a pretty nice gesture to purchase a subscription for someone who may not have a lot of time to focus on themselves. What do you think? Have you ever signed up for a box subscription service? I'm off to do some writing ♥
