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!

So let’s kick of 2017 with something kawaii! Yume Twins is a monthly cute themed subscription box all the way from Japan which contains 5 high quality items. I believe they have recently re-done the boxes to contain less things but higher quality items. All the contents of the box are premium character goods and are licensed. For $29.99 (or less depending on which plan you sign up too) a month you will received a mixture from plushies, lifestyle, apparel & accessories, stationeries or knickknacks and toys. The boxes are free shipping worldwide. My youngest sister bought me a Yume Twin’s monthly subscription box as a gift, which arrived last weekend which is crazy fast from Japan considering when they shipped with all the holidays in between!

If you haven’t received your box yet and don’t want spoilers, don’t hit the cut below!
