June Birchbox | Festival Season
It’s amazing how much time flies by – I can’t believe we’re on the 6th box already! This month’s box comes with a brand new design keeping with the brand’s fun and sophisticated personality. The boxes will also come in a variety of different colours also so that should be fun come the months ahead.
Keeping in line with the festival season, June’s birchbox features products needed to keep you through the summer (when it comes eventually!) months. Let’s take a look inside, shall we?
COOLA CLASSIC FACE SPF 30 SUNSCREEN 7ML (£26.00 FS -FULL SIZE)
This facial lotion contains age-reversing antioxidants including evening primrose, acai and linseed oils, which also help to protect against UVA, UVB and free radicals. The water-resistant formula makes it adept for whether you’re chilling by the pool or rocking out to Muse at Glastonbury in the rain! (Gotta love a bit of Muse, they are so awesome).
The sunscreen doesn’t leave any residue, so it’s great for applying underneath foundation without worrying about white marks. It has a lovely cool, cucumber scent that lingers on the skin without being too heavy and sinks into the skin without leaving an oily residue. Win! (buy here
BEAUTY PROTECTOR PROTECT & DETANGLE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (£14.00 FS)
I normally only tend to stick to afro hair care products or products that cater to thick, curly or kinky hair as maintenance of my curly locks is another story in itself, however I was drawn to this leave in conditioner as it claims to detangle hair and if it’s one thing my hair does well, it’s that it tangles like a dream. =/
The leave in mist conditions hair as well as protecting hair against heat damage – it’s also 100% vegan and paraben/sulfate free which is a plus for all the eco and natural girlies out there! The conditioner is suitable for all hair types which is great and it has an amazingly candyfloss-sweet scent that I could sniff for hours! (buy here
MODELCo EYE DEFINE EYE PENCIL FULL SIZE (£14.00 FS)
A girl can never have too many eyeliners- especially with ones that come with it’s own sharpener. The liner is highly pigmented and long wearing (I swatched the liner almost 4 hours ago and it’s still on my hand, bold as ever) however I think it’s main appeal is the attached sharpener – never again will you have to go rooting into your makeup bag for one again!

BIRCHBOX & COLOUR CLUB WANDERLUST NAIL POLISH (LONDON CALLING & MOD IN MANHATTAN) (£10 FOR COLLECTION OF FOUR)
To celebrate the launches of Birchbox in both France and Spain, Birchbox have collaborated with makeup brand ‘Color Club’ to create the WANDERLUST collection, with all four shades named after famed capital cities where the Birchbox offices are situated (London, New York, Barcelona, Paris).
All colours are neon pastel shades which is something I haven’t seen within the nail polish market as of yet. LONDON CALLING is a lovely neon green which is inspired by London’s city parks, while Mod in Manhattan is a brilliant off-white which represents the glow of the Big Apple at night.
NOBLE ISLE BATH & SHOWER GEL- WILLOW SONG 30ML (£20 FS)
There’s nothing like a luxe shower gel to make one feel indulgent and pampered ^_^.
With ingredients sourced from the English and Welsh countryside, the scented bath and shower gel combines moisturizing properties to feed the skin as well as ingredients such as willow bark, which it’s known for its ability to tone the skin. Water lilt root is infused to soothe both the mind and body and the scent is a blend of fresh, green notes, contemporary florals and cedarwood which creates a calming, romantic aroma. I normally would turn to NEOM shower gels when I’m feeling luxe, however after using this sample, I’ve been converted. It’s such a gorgeous product and well worth the money in my opinion! Noble Isle also produce diffusers which I would love to check out. (buy here
