THE BEAUTY CHRONICLE: BIRCHBOX, MARCH 2013

Birchbox, The Role 

Models Box



- A few months back in November I was very lucky to be invited to the Birchbox launch event which was held at The Soho hotel in London. 
I was honoured to meet co founder of the Birchbox, Katia Beauchamp and find out a little bit more about her and the Birchbox concept. 
 I was informed that American Birchbox was to take over from Joliebox this year.

…And here it is.


The Role Models Box
" March brings Mother's Day and once we've thanked our mums, it's time to pause and apreciate all the other role models whose advice and life paths have helped shape us.
From an iconic British brand to a female found cult line, this month's box features hero products."

- I love the glossy magazine that is included inside the boxes, it is much more detailed
and feature-esc than the JolieMag was.
This months magazine is jam packed with beauty and lifestyle goodies.

Inside the box..

Laura Geller
Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner



"This smooth long-wearing gel eyeliner comes with a handy brush that makes it super-easy to apply."
Full Size: £24.00
-I have never been a fan of liquid eyeliner, I often find that over the day it becomes overly dry and cracks, leaving me with panda eyes and flaky eyeliner.
I have been applying this to my inner tightline and waterline and have loved the longetivity of the product. It is a deep inky black that stays put and gives the eye some serious definiton.

Molton Brown
Valbonne Fragrence

"Valbonne combines notes of bergamot, dewy orange flower, rose, vetiver and leather for a sophisticated scent that will take you from day to night
Full Size: £65
- I do believe that this is a lovely scent, however it is not memorable. I
like memorable scent, I have opted to have this perfume in my handbag for daily touchups.

RMK
Cleansing Balm

"The rose scented balm echoes your mum or grandmother's cold cream as it melts in skin and becomes a silky liquid that removes even stubborn make-up with ease."
Full Size: £29
-Having tried this cleansing balm before I was impressed although I do think it is better
for mature skin as it doesn't contain the high power blemish and oil blitzing agents that my teenage skin needs to stay clear.

La Sultane De Saba
Body Lotion with Argan Oil

"Inspired by ancient beauty rituals of the Orient and Asia, La Sultane de Saba's body lotion with rich Argan Oil sinks into skin with ease, leaving a delicate scent."
Full Size: £26.50
-I am never very impressed with body lotion samples, I am over run with them currently but I do enjoy the scent and texture of this moisturiser.
It is luxurious smelling and with it being only a small canister I can easily use it up in one application.

Yu-Be
Moisturising Skin Cream

"Don't let the primrose colour fool you  - this multi purpose medicated moisturiser is made of tough stuff. A best seller in Japan sine 1957, the comforting camphor scene magically disappears abour a minute after application."
Full Size: £19.50
- I love his product, recently my knuckles have been very sore and cracked due to the cold weather. One application of this product and my hands were feeling much smoother.

Beauty extra included in the box…
Sanctuary
30 Day Theram Transformation Mask
"A two step Peptide Transformation Serum and Thermal Rose Clay Mask."
Full Size: £27.50
- I am donating this product to my mum to try as I feel it would be less beneficial to
younger skin.

Lifestyle extra included in the box…
Lindt
Lindor Heart Tin Filled With Chocolate Truffles
Full Size: £2.99
-My Favourite choccies.
There were four included in the charming, little tin.
Two of which I did share with my mum and dad. :)

- This was a nice little box, there are however no products that wow me and I can see the clear similarity between the Joliebox.
I am hoping that Birchbox introduce us beauty fanatics to more products from over the pond and internationally.
What do you think of Birchbox popping up in the UK?
Love, Holl

  1. I had the same products in my box, and I must agree with you that nothing overwhelmed me, not like some of the items in the previous box such as the fresh sugar lip balm xx
