After two months of amazing boxes from Birchbox, pulling out all the coveted products and most popular, sought after brands, I'm really pleased to see that July's box is much more relaxed and caters for all aspects of beauty, with summer in mind. With a bright and cheerful theme of 'Sun, Sea and Sand', the box is perfectly themed for anyone from those nipping away to paradise or staying closer to home this summer.
The usual colourful and handy postcard-inserts are included in July's box, with some fab tips for looking after the delicate skin around our eyes, essentials to pack for a getaway, Beach to Bar looks and Sunny-Day Survival Hacks. A fab read this month! So what's inside the July box? Let's take a look...
The first product which caught my eye is was a lovely coral lip product in the form of Laqa & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Bees Knees (£14) A gloss-balm hybrid, it has a gorgeous creamy texture and effortlessly glides on to provide a sheer coverage. The shade itself is stunning, a brighter yet more flattering version of Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Surrender Super happy with this product and it's easily the star product for me in the July Birchbox!
Next up, a firm favourite of mine and one which has been a regular feature in beauty boxes over the years, the Balance Me Extra Care Wonder Eye Cream (£20) of which I received the 7ml travel size worth £9.34. Wonder Eye Cream has been a favourite product of mine for keeping the delicate eye area protected, nourished and generally brighter, ever since I first tried it two years ago. It's a product I regularly recommend to friends and family, and I'm chuffed to have another to add to my stash!
One of the products I'm really excited to try, is the Whish Three Wishes Lavender Body Butter (£14.50), of which I received a 22ml travel size worth £2.13. The gorgeous lavender packaging really pulled me in with this one, and I can't wait to give it a go. Described as a sweet-scented antioxidant-rich lotion that works to nourish the skin quickly and effectively. Perfect for summer ready legs!
Weleda is a brand I know and love, a British brand whose products have always surpassed my expectations. In the July Birchbox there's a Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo (£8.95), of which I received an 18ml travel size worth 85p. I've used this shampoo before and I love how this organic beauty effortlessly leaves my hair feeling cleansed, soft and nourished.
A beautifully scented product in this month's box is the Gilchrist & Soames English Spa Sea Kelp Extract Mineral Bath (£11.25) which comes in gorgeous packaging that gives this product a high-end feel. I received a 40ml travel size worth £1.23, and it's described as a delightfully foamy gel wash which has been formulated with marine nutrient rich sea kelp which invigorates our skin. It has such a soothing scent, with herbal and citrus notes.
The final product in the July Birchbox is one I can see a few people grumbling about, but is actually a product I'm chuffed to see included! A lifestyle extra for July, I received an Ultradex Oral Spray (£3.65) which is perfect for popping in my handbag for on the go. An oral spray which works to both kill harmful bacteria and keep breath minty-fresh, perfect!
I'm pretty impressed, Birchbox. I love the variety of products and brands in the July box and I'm really glad that all the products cover the four main aspects of beauty; skincare, body care, hair care and makeup! The contents of my box is worth an impressive £31.20, much more than it's £10 cost!
