August Birchbox - Away We Go!

The summer jet-set theme continues in this month's Birchbox, with every subscriber getting a cute hand-luggage friendly travel bag for all their holiday beauty bits!

Also in my box were:

Dead Sea Spa Magik Refreshing Bath Shower Gel (full price £7.15) - I love Dead Sea Spa products but I don't come across them often enough! I can't wait to use this but I'm saving it for a weekend away we have planned for October!

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect (full price £20.00) - I would never in a million years pay this much for a leave-in conditioner, and I'm not endeared to the chemical smell, but this stuff really does work and doesn't leave any greasy residue! I'll keep this in my gym bag for those post-shower knots!

Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream (full price £32.00) - Now don't get me wrong, I know that BB and CC creams are just glorified tinted moisturisers in disguise, but I think this offering from Supergoop is the best one I've ever used! It gives a decent coverage, adapted to my skin tone quite well given that it's light-medium and I'm normally a porcelain foundation girly, and stayed matte for longer than my usual foundation did! You get two teeny samples and I'm sure these will be gone quickly!

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator (full price £26) - This spa grade exfoliator really gets to work to perk up your skin. I'm not sure if it totally agrees with me as I felt a little blotchy after but I'll have to see with a few more uses!

Wild About Beauty Powder Eyeshadow in Fern (full size product, £13) - I was excited to try something from Louise Redknapp and Kim Jacob's paraben free makeup line and this doesn't disappoint! It blends really well and the warm colour is perfect for the transition into fall and prolonging that bronzed look.

The Proposal extract by Tasmina Perry (lifestyle extra) - I think it's pretty cool of Birchbox to include a novel sample in their holiday box! Some may disagree but it's each to their own. I have so many books to get through at the moment but I've not read anything romantic for a while so maybe I'll give it a try!

All in all I think this is another great box - for me it trumps last month's as there's more in here I'll use on a daily basis but Birchbox continue to impress me with their ideas!
