Birchbox 3 Months On

Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get.

The Aloe Vera Moisturizer Hit?

Instanaturals has become one of my favorite skincare brands over the past few months. After loving their spot gel as well as trying out their mud mask and eye cream. It was no surprise that I jumped at the chance to try their new Aloe Vera based gel that you can use as a cooling moisturizer. 

Aloe vera became a huge hit in 2015, from drinking it to putting it in your hair. It was used in everything. It is most commonly known for the skincare benefits, from spots to sunburn this can cool your skin helping to reduce redness as well as any puffy eyes. 

I have not been taking the best care for my skin recently, since having many late nights spent revising or at work I have really abandoned my routine. My skin just lost that fresh and healthy look to it and I was getting more spots than ever before. 

So this moisturiser stepped in at the right time, my face was just red everywhere. Spots out of this world. And after three weeks my skin is on the mend. I normally apply this mainly at night as otherwise aloe vera can be quite drying on the skin. You only need one pump to cover the whole face. I normally end up with a litte extra. 

One thing Instantaurals do best is their product sizes, this is a 400ml bottle and considering I have used this everyday for around 3 weeks. I have barely used a quarter of the bottle compared to my 50ml moisturisers that I have to replace every 3 weeks. 

Now this is priced at slightly higher than drugstore prices. But for the quality and amount of product I am quite happy to pay £15.95 as this is currently on sale so get it while you can! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased feedback. 

                                       Until next time, Chloe!
