Birchbox August 2017: Mermaid Vibes

 

Birchbox is a monthly beauty box priced at £12.95 a month (That includes P&P). I’ve always been curious about Birchbox. From photos I’ve seen around the internet it’s always looked like a high quality beauty subscription and seemed to have a good selection of items included. The one thing that put me off, and it’s the same reason I cancelled some of the other subscription boxes I had, was that sometimes (or quite a lot of the time in past cases) you get items you don’t want or won’t use and end up binning or giving them away. I’ve been keeping an eye on Birchbox’s previous boxes and I’ve only spotted a couple of bits I wouldn’t use.


This month however, I got a little bit obsessed over the really colourful mermaid box they were sending! Fortunately for me I came across someone selling their box as they didn’t like the contents and were going to return it, so to save the middle man I bought it from them to try out!

If you’ve not received your box yet and don’t want to spoil it don’t hit the read more button!

Korean Cosmetics at TK Maxx + Mini Haul!

Hello Lovelies!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you must know by now how much I adored Korean cosmetics! I love everything about them, from their cute designs, magical skin transforming properties, scents and varities. The only thing I don’t like about them is how hard it is to obtain ANYTHING in the United Kingdom, you can’t just pop into the nearest Superdrug or Boots and pick up a Tony Moly facemask. You’re either stuck ordering online or having to travel to somewhere like China Town in London, until now. TK Maxx has started to stock a massive range of Korean beauty products! I can’t tell you how fast I ran to the store nearest me when I discovered this, handily its also available online too. So far I have seen products from Etude House, The Face Shop, Tony Moly, and Koelf Cosmetic. I’ve also seen a few other non-named brands for sale too. The one thing I would say is that there are a few brands being stocked that have been designed to look like the Korean brands but were actually made in the USA.
