Birchbox x Skinny Dip

This month Birchbox have teamed up with Skinny Dip to create two fantastically designed limited edition boxes which are pastel coloured, shell printed, foil boxes that are just brilliant. If you are a Birchbox subscribers then you can add the Birchbox x Skinny Dip phone case to your box for an additional £4 (rrp £12) and I just love it, slightly see-through, it protects all of the main compenents of your phone, it includes a screen protector and features the shell print to mirror that of the Birchboxes - fab!

Inside the boxes you will find five amazing products and one beauty treat and they are:

Living Proof Restore Instant Repair Cream - This is a brand I have never come across but I like the sound of this product. If you haven't been to the hairdressers in ages (looks sheepish) and your hair is in need of some TLC this lightweight formula smooths and coats the hair shaft, sealing frayed ends while helping prevent new ones. It is also said to make hair up to 15 times stronger, without leaving it greasy or weighed-down. The result? Soft, shiny hair that looks freshly cut - even if your last trim was months ago. You can find it here.


Birchbox x Skinny Dip

Cowshed Cow Pat Hand Cream - If ever there is a brand to make me snort with laughter it is Cowshed with their product names and who wouldn't want to use a hand cream called cow pat?  Described as being a rich and luxurious, non-greasy yet deeply hydrating hand cream that is packed with nourishing Shea and Cocoa butters with a sprinkling of lavender, grapefruit, and cinnamon, the rich formula quickly absorbs into the skin for never-greasy hydration. This is a full sized 50ml tube and can be found here.


Birchbox x Skinny Dip

Lord and Berry Silhouette Neutral Lip Liner - If like me you are one of those people who doesn't tend to bother with a lipliner then this might be for you. It is a waxy and completely transparent lip liner and you simply line the lips as you would with any lip liner to prevent your lipstick from smudging, feathering or bleeding and best of all it is totally invisible so you don't have to worry about it matching or being a close match to your favourite lipstick. You can find it here.


Birchbox x Skinny Dip

REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial - I am a huge fan of REN skincare products and so is my skin, so having this product in the box excites me because I have been wanting to try it for ages.  Described as being a complex of glycolic and lactic acids help to refine and brighten skin tone by triggering cell renewal while omega 3 and sodium lactate, it will repair, soothe and moisturise your skin whilst you sleep and right now, overnight masks are one of my favourite products to use, especially with this horrid weather, so I am looking forward to giving this a go. You can find it here if you want to know more.


Birchbox x Skinny Dip

Trilogy Make Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm - This is a product I have also been wanting to try for months and I have to admit, I have already used this one and it is as good as I had hoped it would me.  The balm is formulated with a rich blend of pure plant oils and it melts on contact with warm skin and is capable of removing and dissolving every last scrap of make-up to leave your complexion perfectly cleansed, soft, and silky-smooth.

The final item in the box is a perfume sample by English Laundry and it is the Notting Hill Femme Eau de Parfum. I am probably one of the very few that loves a perfume sample in a box, I subscribe to one because I think it is brilliant. The scent of this I absolutely love and it is my favourite scent from English Laundry to date, iand is described as "This fresh, classic scent opens with notes of bergamot, mandarin, and cassis. The heart of the fragrance is pure walk-in-the-garden bliss, blending jasmine, rose, and cyclamen with herbal and green notes. Warm wood, vanilla, and amber round out the scent". It is definitely citrusy from the first spritz but once it settles on the skin, it dies down slightly, the floral notes comes through and it is just divine and has a great longevity about it, pretty much lasting all day long. It costs just £60 for an you can find it here.

One the back of the enclosed booklet you will also find a A £10 giftvoucher to spend at Skinny Dip which is a nice little extra, especially when ive had eye on three different phone cases for months.

I think this is an absolutely brilliant box and one of the best from Birchbox that I have been lucy enough to receive. You can purchase your own here via Birchbox for £10 (+£2.95 p&p).
