So Summer time is here (looks outside at the monsoon). For many it’s a time to get away, whether it’s abroad or a staycation Birchbox* has covered your travel beauty bits. From soft skin to nourished hair, fresh breath and tinted lips, all ready-to-hand in your travel bag.
WELEDA MILLET NOURISHING SHAMPOO
Containing essential oils and millet seed extract this shampoo promises to keep hair in top condition. You’ll see a small lather but don’t expect a full head of foam, it’s more of a cleansing gel so feels quite creamy on the hair.
LAQA & CO SHEER LIP LUBE PENCIL IN BEES KNEES
Similar to another very popular lip pencil this by LAQA & CO adds colour and moisture to the lips. Bees Knees is a soft peach shade that gives lips a subtle amount of colour suitable of any skin tone with a fresh minty scent.
BALANCE ME WONDER EYE CREAM
A product loved by many, this eye cream feels rich on the skin, sinks in quickly and leaves no greasy residue. Containing nourishing oils, soothing cucumber and Hyaluronic acid, it claims to soothe, brighten and lift. A small amount goes a long way, make sure to use ring fingers to apply!
GILCHRIST & SOAMES ENGLISH SPA SEA KELP EXTRACT MINERAL BATH
Containing sea kelp extract this mineral bath helps relax and calm with it’s soothing scent. Perfect after a long day travelling.
WHISH THREE WHISHES LAVENDER BODY BUTTER
You think lavender and immediately imagine an old fashioned powdery scent, this however is very subtle and contains more of a warming sweet fragrance which changes as you rub into the skin. You can pick up the fruit notes of the raspberry butter and the freshness of the seaweed extract. It’s so unusual and quite addictive, I’m impressed that it is Organic and contains no parabens or sulphates.
There’s always an extra with Birchbox and this month there’s an oral spray by ULTRADEX ideal for freshening up on the go.
