So anyone with a Birch Box subscription will already know that March's box is a collaboration with British designer Lulu Guinness. I was quite excited to hear this and have been eagerly waiting its arrival although I may have spied some spoilers on the blogging sphere. Im a big fan of Lulu Guinness's designs and I wish I could afford one of her iconic handbags! So here are my first impressions of the box and what goodies it holds:
Ok so when opening the box there were two extra little vouchers one which got me extremely excited. Firstly there was a £20 a £100 spend on Lulu Guinness....great if your willing to shell out a few hundred pound but the second voucher was to try the new Benefit 'Gimme Brow' eyebrow mascara. Recently I had seen some reviews on this product and they all seemed to sing its praises, I had been wanting to try it but reluctant because i have quite fair eyebrows. Now I can give it a go without having to worry that the product is too dark for me and waisting money....so thanks birch box!
A good sized sample of Benefits 'Stay Don't Stray' eye primer is probably my favourite of the box. Im new to eye primers so this is a good place to start without having to fork out any dosh!
I am really excited to try the Dr. Brant 'pores no more' I previously had a sample of their 'micro dermabrasion exfoliator' which was amazing so I'd quite like to see how this stands up to my most loved primer Benefits Porefessional.
The other bits I could really take or leave, a Molton Brown hand cream....I seem to get a hand cream sample every bloody week! Nothing special just a great size for your handbag. Also a perfume sample which you can get free at counters so again nothing special. An Aroma Works Body oil which is quite pricey so could be good I'm just not a fan of body oils and I still have one sat in my bathroom from last months box.
And the lifestyle extra a Lulu Guinness stick of rock which again is just not something Im a fan of.
So 2/6 products on my first impressions are my kind of thing so as a whole a little disappointing but then again maybe ill change my mind once trying a few of them out.
Thank you for reading!
