Birchbox UK – Aug 2017-First Impressions

Hi Everyone

I think this is  going to be the week to receive the majority of my beauty boxes and it started with  my August Birchbox arriving today.  This means I have not got a chance yet to try the products properly  but wanted to give you my first impressions on each product and my thoughts on this month’s box.   This month’s theme is ‘Mermaid Vibes – love the design of the box again this month.


Birchbox is a monthly subscription box which costs £12.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month and 3, 6 & 12 monthly subscriptions are also available.  Usually five personalised beauty treats are included each month.  You can see what I received in last months via link here.


This month every subscriber either received a Spectrum Collections A05 Brush in either Glam Clam or Bomb Shell and a LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in ‘Out of your Shell’ or ‘Rock Steady’  – both FULL size items.   A product  / beauty information booklet and the following three products were also included in my box:

Spectrum Collections A05 Brush in Bomb Shell – FULL SIZE’ RRP Approx. £7 (sets from £59 we already knew a spectrum brush was to be included as received a spoiler last month and then we received an e-mail to make our colour choice.     I chose the pink and rose gold coloured brush as already have brushes in this colour scheme – only slight negative is there is a scrape on the rose gold stem, know it will probably get scraped with use but still slightly disappointed received it with a scrape on it.  As I have said before love the quality, colour scheme of spectrum brushes and they are so reasonably priced as well which is a bonus.   It has soft tapered bristles so should be good for applying finishing powders, highlighters, blush and blending  as prefer a firmer brush to contour;



Happy with this month’s box, definitely a better box for me this month.  Will use all the products and not that disappointed only one makeup item included as a great range of products this month and love the inclusion of another Spectrum brush.

 *SPOILER* September Sneak Peek – states that everyone will receive a ‘Full Size Mannakadar 3 in 1 Product (blush, highlighter and eye shadow in one) in their September Birchbox (photo below)

If you are thinking of  subscribing to Birchbox UK – you can get £5 off your first box -(box is normally £10 +£2.95 shipping – you will get for £5 +£2.95 shipping) by clicking  link here and then copy and paste code at checkout to get your discount.    You can also get a free full-size Nails Inc. Polish plus a make up bag when you order your August Birchbox (*photo below),  just add the code TAKE2 at checkout to get free gift.


Look forward to any comments you may have – if you have received this month’s box would love to know what you thought.

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you – enjoy the rest of the week and take care.

Best Wishes Liz x

    A nice box and the brush is lovely. Birchbox is a good and reliable company and I do like it but sometimes the products are more sample size and there is a tendency for repeating some products. I love the spoiler for next month and I have also enjoyed the photos.

      Thank you Susie – I agree recently Birchbox have had even more sample sizes than most of the other beauty boxes and occasionally have repeat products. Looking forward to receiving the spoiler product as well. Take care and chat soon x💕
