Birch box | January

To kick start the new year Birch box teamed up with Pinterest to created the perfect decorated box, one for keeping, filled with six great products.

As a little extra they have included five Pinterest inspired postcards with some inspirational quotes to  give us some motivation throughout 2016. They will look lovely framed on your desk or dressing table, I'm going to add mine to my cork board.


This months products . . .

Benifit, they're real tinted primer | £18.50
WHAT | For super charged lashes, one coat of this game-changing product will make all the difference! The mink-coloured formula separates, lengthens, and boosts each individual lash to prepare it for your mascara.
HOW | Apply on coat, from root to tip, before applying your mascara for some serious volume. Or rock it alone for a natural look!

It seems like there is a primer for everything now, but if it's going to keep my makeup on for longer I'll give it a try. Let's face it no one won't to carry loads of makeup around all day for that mid day top up.

Jelly pong pong, lighten up brightener and waterliner | £14.95

HOW | Glide along the inner rim and corner of your eyes, or blend onto check and brow bones.

I love a makeup piece that is multi tasking and this sounds great, I love highlighting my brow bones and cheeks. This will be perfect when I've had a late night and I need to brighten up my eyes. 

Whish, three whishes almond body butter | £14.50

I've had this product before but I was more than happy to receive it again, I was actually about to purchase the full size, and I still will. It makes hair brushing so easy and it really does smell incredible, I always get compliments of how my hair smells when I use this. 

Absolution, L'Eau soir et Martin | £27

I've scrapped the makeup wipes for a will now and used makeup removers, and my skin has been so much better since, I'm looking forward to giving this one a try.

WHAT | Thanks to this handy compact mirror you'll be able to take care of beauty touch-ups and unruly locks on the go - so you're always selfie ready!
