April Birchbox 2018- Cath Kidston special edition

Hello everyone, welcome back to my new Birchbox series.  This is my second one I have purchased, April Cath Kidston special edition.
Postage about £2
Box only £10

Quote of this month:
“Brighten up your day”


Here is a sneak peak before we dive into all these products…… Remember they are only sample sized.  Fantastic if you do not know if you want to spend your money or not.  This box is catered to my personal profile for my likes, skin and shade.


Main free product for the special edition is the Cath Kidston hand cream.  Retails for £2.50 and this is the full sized product.  It smells amazing.  Going to use this in my baby changing bag.


Percy & Reed Perfectly perfecting wonder balm, for the hair.  This is only 30ml.  The full sized 70ml product retails for £18.


Okay when I say sample size, this is tiny,  it is very dinky.  However it is beautiful.
This is the MODEL co Baked highlighter in Moonshine.
Retails for £24
There was a choice of 2 this month, I prefer a darker highlight so I do not look washed out.


Beautaniq Brow gel, Fill and tame.
This came in 3 shades, blonde, brunette or black.  I chose Brunette.
I think this is the full sized product which retails for £8.60.


Last of all there are 2 AfterSpa Makeup remover gloves.
These are very small.  The full sized product retails for £8.95.


So there is my April Birchbox.  I do plan to review a few of these products, as well as some of the products from the March Birchbox – first time buying.

March Birchbox – first time buying

Hello all and welcome back to my blog space.
Today we are looking into my first EVER Birchbox, from March.
For the total of £12.95 (£10 for the box, £2.95 postage).
If you like this sort of post do not forget to like and follow for more.


The box comes with about 3 booklets/leaflets.
The first is the main booklet with details about the products, as well as a quote.  The quote for March was “Be present not perfect”.
Lets move onto what is inside.

Boom, all this for £10.  AMAZING.
On my profile I was able to fill out questions about my skin and preferred products.  Birchbox then decide on what products would best suit my skin.
I then recieved a free sample which is the Blaq face mask.


This is the Ritual of Sakura foaming shower gel ( FULL SIZED) by Rituals, normally retails for £4.50.
It smells so good, and the product is like shaving gel, so a little lasts a long time.


BLAQ face mask ( tester size)- this was the free product.
the full size mask retails for £14.
I found the sample size did 2 full face masks.


This is the MaskMe hydrating hair mask by Pro Blo Group.
a pack of 4 of these cost £8.
I have not tried this yet.


The best bit this month was they included a sample size of the new Benefit BAD Gal BANG mascara.
The full size mascara retails for £21.50
I love it and I know this sample size is going to last me such a long time.  I will do a proper review on this product another day.


And finally…….This is the Spectrums collection B04 Angled blender brush
Retails for £5.99
It is so soft and applies eyeshadow and blends beautifully.


I hope you enjoyed checking out the March Birchbox.
I love this and cannot wait to see what my April Birchbox will bring.
I definitely think it is worth the money.  £10 for all these testers and 2 of them on their own cost £10.49 ( brush and showergel)  so the rest were a bonus.
Definitely helps me decide if I want to buy the full sized products.
