Birchbox // August 2015

Always late with the Birchboxes these days, it’s nearly time to post the September one already! There’s no excuse for such a delay but I’ve been mega busy, with some exciting new changes in my life at the moment, all to be revealed soon hopefully. Now back to this wonderful Birchbox…

August’s Beauty Junkie theme delivered a colourful, emoji covered box, with my Birchbox featuring: Rituals Cherry Blossom and Organic White Rice Scrub, Lord and Berry Blush in Lotus, BioNike Defence Tolerance Cleansing Water, Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo, TheBalm Cosmetics Balm Desert Bronzer, L Erickson Grab & Go Ponytail Holder, with the Lifestyle item this month – lots and lots of funky emoji stickers!

Overall thoughts: Another mixed bag I would say. I absolutely love the rice scrub, it smells amazing, the texture is just right, not a bad thing to say about it! I like trying out new cleansing products so I hope the BioNike one doesn’t disappoint (not that I’ve heard much about this brand, with all the Micellar waters out on the market, there’s definitely some competition!). To my surprise, I have been absolutely loving the L. Erickson hair band. It’s not an item I would usually pay attention to, but as I was all out of hair bands this was the only one I could find to hand – and it’s actually amazing! It’s really soft but supportive and doesn’t feel like it’s pulling on my scalp at all, even when I have my hair in a tight pony … never thought I’d be getting so hyped up about a hair band haha!
