Summer Daze by Birchbox



With everyone off on their holidays, the Summer Daze box from Birchbox for July couldn't have been better timing. It's packed with all those summer essentials you may need for at home or abroad. The palm sunset print on this months box, couldn't get me more in the mood for a holiday if they tried! There are a whole host of samples to pack in your hand luggage plus there's a little something from Benefit Cosmetics within every box.




You can sign up to Birchbox for just £12.95 a month including postage. I've been receiving my box for over two years now and I love having that little treat fall through my letterbox each month. I've discovered so many new products I now use daily and I can totally see why Birchbox is the number one subscription box in the UK. This months box features some fab essentials that I've already started to use! 

As I said, everyone will receive a treat from Benefit Cosmetics this month in the form of their famed lip and cheek tints. I received Go Go Tint which is a flirty pink perfect for summer as it doesn't slide off with summer sweat! To keep my skin feeling fresh on those extra hot days, there is also a sample of the Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar water. I swear by micellar water and I think I might just keep this to one side for my hospital bag! 

Anatomicals have always had fun and quirky packaging and the Softening Eucalyptus Foot Cream is no different. This has been a dream to apply the last couple of days as it immediately cools skin, something my puffy feet have been very thankful for. Percy & Reed also feature this month with their much loved Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery. I always have a tube of this in my bathroom and I just knew it was in the box before opening because of its oh so familiar smell that also lingers on hair. It's such a wow treatment in my hair cupboard. 

The final product is from Origins, a face mask which you mix with water before applying to skin. The RitualiTea Feeling Rosy Face Mask is the one product I haven't tried yet but that's because I'm lazy when it comes to face masks, I like to squeeze from a tube and apply. There is also a perfume sample but I always feel a bit meh about perfume samples in subscription boxes! Either way, I've really liked this months box because I have a use for more or less everything. 

I've also seen a sneak peek for August and I am very excited! Now is the time to subscribe ;)

  1. I'm not a huge user of make up but I do love Benefit products - I'd be very happy to find one of their products in my subscription box.
