June Birchbox - Feat French Sole


This months Birchbox theme is 'Step Outside' Which Is about making the most of the sunshine and celebrating the great outdoors. I do think Birchbox keep with their themes really well, especially with this box.
I am on holiday in a few weeks and I can honestly say I will be taking everything inside this box with me, including the nifty little French Sole shoe bag extra! it all seems pretty holiday appropriate.

With this months Birchbox you could choose which French Sole design box and shoe bag you wanted (out of 3) which I thought was a nice idea.
I loved the one I received with the nautical stripes and red heart.

This months box included..

Pixi By Petra Tinted Lip Balm - Full Size
I received this a few boxes back in a raspberry colour and I loved it, so I was happy to get another but in a more wearable nude shade.
This tinted lip balm gives a hint of a colour with a subtle sheen and a nice amount of moisture.

Full Size - £8

Cowshed - Knackered Cow Relaxing Body Lotion
This is such a decent sized sample, I was really happy to see this in my box as I have always wanted to try something from this brand. I love how tongue-in-cheek their product names are too haha!
This body lotion smells gorgeous, it is a blend essential oils of lavender and eucalyptus to help relax and calm you when needed. I must say, when I apply this it really does give you that 'ahhhh, that's better' effect after a long stressful day.

Full Size - £18

Penhaligon's - Iris Prima
I'm not so sure about this perfume sample, I can be rather fussy when it comes to fragrances and this reminds me of the kind of thing my mum wore in the 90s when I used to raid her perfume stash, stick on her high heels and pretend to be a 'grown up', it smells floral, musky and quite mature - I know what I'm trying to say anyway haha.
Everyone has their perfume preferences, so some may really like this..it's just not for me.

Full Size - £85

REN - Instant Firming Beauty Shot
I love a bit of REN skincare so I was happy to see another addition in my box that I have yet to try. This is supposed to be like a shot of espresso for your skin to awaken and plump the complexion. It contains Hyaluronans that helps plum the skin and diminish wrinkles, for instantly firmer and more toned skin.
I use this under my moisturiser, but It can also be used on top of makeup throughout the day. The texture is very lightweight and sinks in straight away.
I am very impressed with this product and may have to purchase full size soon.

Full Size - £36

Beauty Protector - Protect and Detangle
My sister also gets Birchbox, and she received this a while ago and hasn't stopped raving about this specific product. So now I have it and I'm looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.
I shall save this detangler for my holiday as it is the perfect travel size and I think it may come in handy.
As well as detangle, it is supposed to be a thermal protector, UV Protector, Smooth hair, Seal cuticles, lock in colour, add shine and condition.

Full Size - £14

STYLondon - Temporary Metallic Tattoos
I bought a similar pack of these from Topshop a few weeks back, I love how they look almost like jewellery. I will be taking this pack for my holidays to sport on the beach to accessorise my bikini a bit.

Full Size - £7.99

  1. It looks like you got some amazing things in your box! I am a HUGE fan of the Beauty Protector Detangler. It smells AMAZING; you're going to love it! I'm very jealous that you got some metallic tattoos in your Birchbox. I have seen that trend around so much lately and I really want to try some!

  2. I love the Pixi and Beauty Protector products, I got them around a year ago and repurchased them all cause I loved them haha. Your box looks so much better than mine though haha x


  3. I love this months Birchbox. I'm so glad I got the Honey nectar PIXI balm as I already had the Raspberry one from another box :)

  4. This is a great box! The Pixi balm is great and it's good to build up a little collection of them. I haven't tried any of the other stuff but I'm looking forward to :)
