I always adore the monthly Birchbox boxes, but a limited edition box in collaboration with Tatler? Now that's something to get really excited about! If you're a fan of beauty, then this is one box not to miss!
A beautifully designed box (another one for me to keep as a snazzy new storage box!), the Birchbox and Tatler collaboration box is limited edition and features 6 beauty products picked by Tatler's very own beauty editor, Francesca White. Each of the products inside this limited edition box have been carefully chosen by Francesca, featuring all British brands, showcasing the best of British beauty. For me this is a fantastic collaboration - not only is a collaboration with Tatler amazing, and the box is really super pretty, but it's a brilliant way to try more British brands, as well as enjoying in a few British brands I already know and adore.
Representing London... Ciate LondonA full-size Ciate London Paint Pot features inside the Tatler box, a super-pigmented polish which applies opaque even colour in just two coats, promising long-lasting chip free nails. The shade I received is 'Maybe Baby' (I'm not 100% sure if every box will have the same shade!), a warm chocolate-y nude, it kind of reminds me of the colour of hot chocolate (and now I want a hot chocolate...). Ciate London Paint Pots cost £9 each, and I know they do mini sizes as they often so sets at Christmas - so I'm really happy that this is a full sized 13.5ml bottle instead of a mini. A great shade for any season!
Representing The Cotswolds... Bamford
A new brand to me, Bamford uses the British countryside to inspire their products, covering everything from their ingredients to their product names. Inside the Tatler box is a 50ml sample size of Bamford Geranium Hand and Body Wash - the full size is £22 for 250ml (making the sample size worth £4.40). A plant-based blend of soothing Aloe Vera, Geranium, Lavender and Peppermint Oils which work to cleanse and refresh skin. It smells beautiful, a combination of scents I wouldn't have put together myself, they work together to create a soothing and reviving scent that makes me think of spas and full body massages.
Representing Somerset... Dr Jackson's Natural Products
Dr Jackson's Natural Products are created, bottled and packaged on Dr Jackson's very own farm in Somerset, a British brand who sources it's ingredients from all over the world. The Dr Jackson's Natural Products 03 Face Oil is 100% natural and formulated with a nourishing blend of Baobab and Marula Oils alongside Calendula (one of my favourite skincare ingredients!) and Arnica Flower, which work together to nourish skin, improve skin tone and elasticity all whilst smoothing the complexion. It's a fab facial oil packed with antioxidants with refreshing and anti-inflammatory properties that comes in two sizes; a 50ml bottle costing £55 and a 25ml bottle costing £30. The size of the 03 Face Oil in the Tatler box is 25ml, which would easily last months and months and months. I've used this over the past couple of nights before my evening moisturiser, applying 3-4 drops for my face and neck, and I love the way it makes my skin feel. Softer, smoother, more plumped and youthful.
Representing Isle of Wight... Liz Earle Beauty Co.
Liz Earle Beauty Co. is based in Isle of Wight, using the finest ingredients and botanicals available to create a hugely expansive range of skincare, body care, hair care and makeup products. I'm a big fan of Liz Earle skincare and the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is one of - if not the - most popular and best-selling products Liz Earle has too offer. I've been using Cleanse & Polish for years, a fantastic cleansing cream which works to leave skin looking and feeling more nourished and glowing. The Tatler box includes a 50ml sample size of Cleanse & Polish alongside a Liz Earle Muslin Cloth - the full size 100ml Cleanse & Polish Starter Kit which features 2 Muslin Cloths costs £15.50, making this sample size worth £7.75. For those new to Liz Earle, this is an amazing sample size to receive!
Representing London... Aromatherapy Associates
Another favourite brand of mine, Aromatherapy Associates is a London-based company which has been creating beautiful Essential Oil blends for over 30 years, creating luxurious products that work to enhance wellbeing, promoting a calmer, happier and more serene mind and body. The Tatler box features a 40ml sample of the Renewing Rose Body Cream, a product I've tried before and absolutely adore. An indulgent and incredibly beautifully scented body cream which utilises a stunning blend of Rose, Shea Butter and Evening Primrose Oil to give skin a much-needed moisture boost. The full size costs £35 for 200ml (making the 50ml sample worth £8.75).
Representing London... Percy & Reed London
The final product in the Tatler box is a full size Percy & Reed London Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray, RRP £14. Percy & Reed is a London-based brand created by two talented hair stylists; Adam Reed and Paul Percival, with their Mayfair and Shoreditch salons being the inspiration behind their product range. The Dry Instant Volumising Spray is described as the 'next generation' dry shampoo, working to both lift and swell hair to create luxurious volume in a flash.
The limited edition Tatler box costs £25, so a touch pricer than the usual monthly Birchbox boxes, but with a total product worth of £73.90 it's an absolute beauty steal! The products and brands featured inside this box are incredible - I am seriously impressed with Francesca's picks - and I am super happy with every single product included. I love seeing some of my favourite brands featured, and love that I have been introduced to more British brands through this limited edition box!
