June Birchbox: French Sole – What’s in the box?

I’ve been getting Birchboxes for a few months now, and have been meaning to post it on here but never really got around to it. There’s a lot of excitement involved, and I do my best to never really look online at what’s coming. In fact, this month I totally forgot all about it, so apologies must be sent to the courier who just saw me in a rather disheveled state in my dressing gown! (I am going to get dressed soon, I’m having a lazy day before doing a good 10 mile walk, that I will hopefully be able to finish today!)

So this month’s box has been put together with French Sole, who designed the box and a rather cool fabric bag that I can keep it all in. It looks like Licorice All Sorts which makes it amazing!

So, what’s in the box?

The first thing that I noticed was the balance me Super Moisturising Body Wash.

This smells delicious. It is actually a product that I have used previously after getting it free with Glamour Magazine a couple of months back, so I can already tell you that it leaves your skin feeling really good after use. I was using it after swimming as I’d ran out of my Sun, Swim & Gym shower gel, and it was so refreshing to not smell of chlorine after doing my turn in the pool!

Next up is Styl London‘s Temporary Tattoos.

If I was going to a festival this summer I would be so excited to be taking these with me! I’m not, but I’m sure we’ll manage to find a reason to try them out! They’re gold and silver in colour, too, which means taht they will go with pretty much anything.

Thirdly, we’ve got English Laundry by Christopher Wicks

Apparently it is a “bright and fruity fragrance … both flirty and fun”, and who doesn’t want to smell flirtatious?

It does carry quite an alluring smell, but I feel that it is far too mature for me. I’m 23 and this is definitely the perfume of someone who can handle responsibility. Note to self: wear this to job interviews.

Yesto cucumbers Soothing hypoallergenic facial wipes won the 2011 Allure Best of Beauty Award.Apparently they “Instantly Remove Make Up”, and so I will definitely be putting that theory to the test.

I love make up wipes because I am lazy. If make up wipes didn’t exist, I would just go to sleep in make up and let the bacteria attack my skin. (Please note, this is not the reason I have acne.)

I’d never heard of Mirenesse before opening up my box, but inside it I have got a Secret Weapon iCurl 24hr Mascara.

I love mascara, mostly because it is the easiest part of make up. I’m always wary of long lasting make up products, but this looks a little different and I don’t think it has anything dodgy in it that could damage where it is put. (Disclaimer: I am not an expert).

Last, but certainly not least, is Beauty Protector Protect & Oil

I love doing my hair and making it pretty and plaiting it so I get curls (and so it doesn’t blow everywhere while I’m out or get knotted in my sleep) and these cute little glass bottles look simple to use and promise protection from UV damage, whilst smelling “a-mazing!” Nobody loses!
