Battle of the Beauty Boxes – Conclusions from the 2018 Unboxing and Reviews on Birchbox, Glossybox, Look Fantastic and Cohorted

What a year for beauty boxes has it been! This year I’ve subscribed and tried the most beauty boxes I’ve ever have before but also unsubscribed from a lot too. I’ve tried Sophie’s Normal and Luxury beauty boxes which were nice but still at their infancy. I’ve tried the Pink Parcel and even though I didn’t write about it, I thought it was more worth the cash than Birchbox . I’ve also tried the MLB Box (aka My Little BeautyRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box October 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

One more month, one more Birchbox although this one is my last. After a year and a half of being a subscriber to Birchbox and also to other beauty boxes, I have come to the conclusion that Birchbox is the least value for money and the least exciting beauty box to receive. For all the details and further explanations check out: Coffee Chat: Goodbye Birchbox – Why I unsubscribed from the Birchbox beauty box after a year and a half I’veRead more

Coffee Chat: Goodbye Birchbox – Why I unsubscribed from the Birchbox beauty box after a year and a half

The time has come to say goodbye to Birchbox. Like many of you, I read the reviews and comments before I subscribed but I still wanted to try it out myself. Now, after about a year and a half of being a subscriber, I have decided to end my subscription. If you are wondering why subscribe to beauty boxes in general click here to find out the top 5 reasons. I haven’t just been a Birchbox subscriber, I’ve also beenRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box September 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

This month’s Birchbox was a beautiful purple draw-like box with some soft coloured shape pattern. It’s definitely one of the most pretty Birchboxes and one that I’ll likely keep for a while. Love it when the box is pretty and you can utilise it too! The theme this month was “On top of your world”, as September is the month of new beginnings. Never heard of that before but I guess it makes sense, schools and Universities start now, theRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box August 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The second box to arrive this month was the Birchbox. Even though it’s the least favorite of mine, it’s still a good way and value for money for exploring new beauty products. This month’s theme was “Live a life beautiful” and it was a collaboration with Etsy. Birchbox collaborated with 10 Etsy sellers to create a collection of 10 different Birchbox designed boxes where each box shows a design of the seller’s passion and creativity. I love the idea butRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box July 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Last month’s Birchbox was brilliant. It was actually a tin, instead of the typical Birchbox draw-like box, in celebration of their 5th birthday in the UK. I loved that tin box so much that it went straight into usage and I almost wish they always did tin boxes instead of cardboard, although I realise that’s not very green. Either way I wasn’t expecting this month’s box to be different as it was different last month. But it was! This monthRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box June 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Birchbox June did not come in the standard draw-like box. Instead, it came in a nicely designed tin with a blue and white print. It looks gorgeous and I love the idea of the tin, it’s actually a lot more useful and practical than a draw-line cardboard box. The print also reminds me of Amsterdam and the Dutch in general, as they have very similar blue and white prints. I love it! The theme this month was a celebration forRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box May 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Birchbox May came in the standard draw-like box, with a palm tree leaf design, which matches the “preparation for summer” or the “say aloha to the first signs of summer” theme as they called it. As much as I love the “Palm Leaves and Warm Breeze” mood, there was something about this box that made me think it was on the uglier side. Is it just me? Nevertheless, the products contained were actually excellent for Birchbox standards!  Birchbox is usuallyRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box April 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Birchbox April 2018 was absolutely gorgeous. The box design was in collaboration with Cath Kidston for their 25th birthday and had the typical flowery pattern that the brand is known for. This must be one of the most beautiful Birchbox boxes ever, although I wish the colours were a little more intense, the flowery pattern looks a little washed out. Nevertheless, love Cath Kidston, their products are always so beautiful and they have patterns for everyone, even those who don’tRead more

Birchbox Beauty Box March 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Birchbox March had a very unique box design which I can only describe as a “Yoga design”. This month’s box carried a “self-care” theme which definitely fits the Yoga design and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve recently started appreciating Yoga and therefore the theme and box design speak to me much more than if I received this box a few months ago. If you missed out my Yoga experience post on check out “Coffee Chat: I’veRead more
