Birchbox July 2014

So yesterday I received my July Birchbox. At first I was a bit disappointed as I hadn't received one of the Models Own polishes but after further inspection I was quite happy with what I received.
The theme for this month's box is Sun, Sea and Sand.

First item is my favourite, it's the Laqa & Co Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Bees Knees.

From what I have seen there were two colours in the boxes of the lip pencils, coral and purple. As much as I love the colour purple I'm glad I got the coral as I am quite pale. I have also been looking for a nice coral lip colour for a while. The pencil is easy to apply and goes on very smoothly. It feels strangely refreshing when on your lips. I'm guessing this is full size and it is worth £14.

Next up is Benefit's 'The Porefessional'. I got one of these in a magazine a few months ago so had already tried it. Have only used it a couple of times but like how smooth it felt on the skin. This is only a sample size (although a good sample size) but the full size is £24.50 for 22ml.

Balance Me is a brand that keeps cropping up for me but most of the products haven't been something I would try, however this I will definitely be giving a go. The Wonder Eye cream is another good size sample. Full size is £20 for 15ml.

Below is Compagnie De Province Mediterranean Sea Hand Cream. I always welcome hand cream as I use quite a lot of it. I found the packaging of it a little strange as it wasn't clear straight away what it actually was (unless you speak French). It's not the nicest smell in the world but the scent definitely matches the name, it's a bit of a salty sea smell. I'm not sure if this is full size or a sample size but the normal price is £8.50.

The last product from my box is Gilchrist & Soames English Spa Sea Kelp Extract Mineral Bath. Not sure if I will use this or not as I prefer a shower to a bath, however it smells quite nice :)
This is another good size sample! Full size is worth £11.25.

As a lifestyle extra in my box I got this Vita Coco Natural Coconut Water in Lemonade. I don't know what anyone else thinks of it but I tried it and all I can say is YUCK!!! Far too sweet for me!lol. These are £2.29 and are apparently the celeb's favourite uber-hydrating drink!

So...that's the excitement over for another month :)
What did you all think of your boxes?

Thanks for reading.

  1. This is my exact box - it's grown on me since I saw the early spoilers and i'm happy with it! Not tried the coconut water yet but I had been eyeing up these drinks in Boots recently so happy to get one, just hope I like it more than you did!

  2. Looks like a great box. I get glossybox abd you beauty discovery myself. I love coconut water but not sure about lemonade with it! X
