I've now been subscribed to Birchbox for about 5 months now (Still waiting on my 5th box!) and so far have really enjoyed every box that I have received, for this post I thought I would show you all the products that I have continued to use and love from all my birchboxes. 

March was the first month that I subscribed to Birchbox and that was a couple of months ago now and I'm still using one of the products that I got with my first box. The sample was a deluxe size which I only just finished it and will be repurchasing!

This mask has done wonders for my skin, it has helped reduce the size of my pores (I have oily skin so this was needed), draw out impurities and reduce blackheads which I think it really has for my skin. I had quite a few blackheads on my nose and this mask has helped to reduce them. I use this mask once a week on the areas that I think I need the most work, this has helped the amount of mask be prolonged. I will be repurchasing the full size of the mask as my skin has definitely improved with using it. 

Aprils Birchbox was designed with Cath Kiddson and had the prettiest box. I am still using one of the products that I got in this box and it is actually one of my all-time favourite products that I've received. 

When I first started using this product I didn't realise how much that I would actually enjoy the product. I am also still using the sample size as it was such a generous amount of product and a little goes a long way with this moisturiser as it is quite a thick consistency. I tend to use this product right before bed after I have applied my normal moisturiser, it helps to make my skin feel really soft and moisturised when I wake in the morning. It has also really helped with the areas of my skin that are slightly dry by rehydrating my skin. 

May (Full First Impression Post)

May was my favourite design of the box with this pink and green leaf pattern. With this box, I am still using two of the products that I received as the sample sizes were really great. 

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - Black

RRP £16.00
This liner is probably my favourite makeup item that I have received from all of my birchboxes. I wear it nearly every day for just a normal cat eye or if I'm going out of an evening I do a thicker cat eye and its just as easy to apply, the small felt applicator helps you to do this. This liner stays on all day without budging and doesn't wear away and fade which I hate with liquid liners. The colour also stays a really dark black and it dries matte. 


Native Unearthed Activated Charcoal Natural Deodorant Balm 
RRP £7.99
Before I tried out this deodorant balm I had never thought about trying a more natural deodorant and I didn't think about how many chemicals there can be in deodorants. This balm is actually really great, I have tried so many different deodorants which just didn't work and this one really does by keeping you sweat free all day! It also has a really nice fresh scent and is very easy to apply. It is more expensive than other deodorants but it lasts a really long time because you don't need too much on each application. 

June (First Impression Post Here)

June was my most successful box as I'm still using four different products including makeup and sun care. June was also the month of Birchboxes 5th Birthday which they gave you a tin keepsake box with a really cute design. 

Polaar Velvety Sun Fluid Face & Body SPF 30

RRP £25.00
I have a love-hate relationship with most sun creams because I have a medium skin tone some sun creams can give me a white cast on my skin and the others have that sun cream smell which I really don't like. This sun cream doesn't do any of that, it has a thinner consistency and also has a really nice fresh scent. This sun cream also sinks into the skin really quickly and also leaves you feeling moisturised. 

Ella Eden Compact Eyeshadow - Faith

RRP £12.99
This eyeshadow was the full-size product that you received in your June Birchbox. I chose to have the colour Faith which is a deep brown colour with a slight shimmer with to it. I have used this colour a lot since receiving it because of its such a flattering colour. The formula of this eyeshadow is also really good as it doesn't have too much fallout and has great pigmentation. 

Lord & Berry Strobing Highlighter Pencil 

RRP £14.00
Recently I have really been enjoying using different highlighting pencils and this one that I received is probably my favourite. It has such a strong highlight which is more glowy than glittery which I really like. I like to use this highlighter for highlighting under my brow bone and also for adding some highlight to my inner corner. 

Benefit The Porefessional Pearl Primer 

RRP £27.50
In my first impression of this primer, I wasn't sure about it but I have grown to really enjoy using it. I still don't think that it is too brightening but it works really well as a pore-filling primer which is what I want. The primer goes on the skin like a dream and it also helps my foundation look flawless.

I have been so happy with my Birchboxes that I have received so far and cannot wait for more boxes to come. Have you been using products from your birchboxes?

  1. I really love Birchbox, I’ve only just subscribed a few months ago! Can’t wait for my boxes to come to try out new products.

    1. They are great have found some real gems being subscribed to Birchbox x

  2. I used to get Birchboxes last year but stopped my subscription in the end because I had so many products that I didn't get time to use, haha. I loved the chance to try brands you wouldn't normally see though. That Lumene cream looks amazing, and Lord & Berry do lovely products. I had a Sand & Sky pink mask that I've just squeezed the last drop out of so that may well be a repurchase at some point! Great post, I'm so glad you're enjoying Birchbox! x

    1. I really love trying out new things! Before getting the Birchbox I would hardly try out new products and only stick to what I was used to! Thank you xx

  4. Lately my skin has been oily, which is not it's typical state. I wonder if the mask is good on sensitive combo skin too. I definitely need to check out the sunscreen because with my skin tone it seems like they all leave a white cast! Glad to know you found one. Your images are so beautiful, glad Birchbox gave you some good stuff. O and I wanna check out the liquid liner, kinda feel like that'll be a good one.

    1. My skin is pretty oily and it worked well for me, I only used t on areas that’s are oily so I think it would be fine for your skin! The sun cream is a favourite it’s pretty pricey but works really well, Thank you! Xx

  5. Amazing that you're still using the SPF. I had the Eyeko liner years ago, it's amazing! I really like the sound of the sleeping cream and I'm very intrigued by the idea of natural deodorant too. It's amazing that you've found so many great new products x


    1. Ilove that I found so many new products but it’s nit too good for my bank account! The deodorant was a great find! Xx

  6. The Cath Kidson was too cute! I’ve really loved all the boxes I’ve had so far! June was my best month so far loved most of the products! Xx
