Birchbox Beauty Box / January 2015

Birchbox Beauty Box / January 2015

Hello everyone!

First of all, sorry for inactivity on my blog, as I am very very busy with my studies and work. I promise that in a couple weeks time it will get back to normal and I will be posting more and more edits and style advices.

The first Birchbox of the 2015 came in a beautifully printed box, as a part of collaboration with Women’s Health magazine. I am sure that it was not only me who gave myself a promise to be more healthy and physically active in 2015, Birchbox team know that for sure, too. The box is packed with the products that you might need when you start your brand new and healthy life, by going to the gym and eating clean.

1. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – Sample Size 10ml. Full Size RRP £45.00

I was glad to receive another great Caudalie product, this serum is already out into my wishlist. This oil-free serum evens skin tone, boosts radiance, and moisturises for a glowing complexion. I usually use it after cleansing, by putting thin layer onto my face. As my skin is quite oily, I prefer to use it alone without moisturisers. Definitely recommended.

2. Green People Intense Repair Shampoo – Sample Size 30ml. Full Size RRP £11.95

Green People Intense Repair Shampoo is rich in active nutrients and proteins, it strenghthens and repairs without any chemical nasties. First of all, this shampoo is really made for someone who don’t want to throw away empty bottle after third wash. Little bit really does go a long way. It doesn’t lather up like other chemical-laden shampoo’s I used to buy but it still rubs into the hair nicely. A really good product for my thick frizzy hair.

3. Activbod Cooling Finish Lotion – Sample Size 20ml. Full Size RRP £12.00

Absolutely amazing product for those, who is a fan of cardio workouts and who needs quickly re-enegise after a training. This menthol-packed lotion smells divine, after you massage it into clean skin it takes only few seconds for you to feel that cooling tringle. Very good product.

4. Stila Lip Glaze – Full Size RRP £15.00

Every subscriber received this Stila Lip Glaze in their box this month. I was lucky to receive this bold red colour.  It provides an impressive pigmented colour and wears quite long with it’s thick formula without too much stickiness. The gloss comes in a click style pen with an attached lip brush for application and has a subtle vanilla flavour and fragrance.

This can be worn alone or over a lip colour to enhance shine or to make the lips look fuller. I like that this is a natural shade as it’s ideal for lazy days when you can’t be bothered to do a full face of make-up and can be worn during the day and in the evenings.

I’m really impressed with the lip glaze formula and they have a huge selection of shades to chose from.

5. HealGel Face – Sample Size 5ml. Full Size RRP £37.50

HealGel was created by a team of leading British plastic and cosmetic surgeons with the help of a renowned dermatological biochemist and a well known actor is another brand which I’ve been wanting to try for a while.

From the HealGel range I received the one, which is called Face. This gel contains hyaluronic acid with omega oils to smooth and replenish the skin.

Excellent product, leaves skin feeling really soft and smooth with a small amount. Only been using for a week but already my skin seems clearer and more even and hasn’t given me spots which a lot of other products tend to do.
