Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
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. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Hidden Gems- Face Mask Fixer Upper



It's a face mask this week, I've really been wanting switch things up and some of new skincare goodies have been the way to go. I found myself sticking to the same thing and my skin wasn't showing a lot of change. Rather than going too drastic I thought about trying a new mask. We all know I won't turn down the opportunity to get a new face mask so let's talk about how this went. 

I'll admit now, I've never used a jam mask before. The Superdrug Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Face Mask £4.99 packed with kakdu plum extract and orange peel this is the sure fire way to get that skin pumped for the new year ahead. After a heavy Christmas and a cold January it's time to treat the skin a little. 



This is one of the weirdest masks i've ever used I'll say that now. I have tried a large variety of masks but this really is something different. It's a hybrid of a gel and a scrub mask in a  lovely zesty form. The usual leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wipe away with a bit of water and you've got some good results. 

They recommend to use this a couple times a week as it can double as an exfoliator, as someone who suffers from a lot of pesky breakouts making sure my skin is clear from dead skin is essential. It allows any trapped dirt and oil to be freed what's better than clearing your skin and relaxing whilst doing so. 

I've had this on my skin a couple of times and my skin feels as smooth as anything. It's got that squeaky clean feeling to it. I haven't used a proper exfoliator in a while and it's clear to see now my skin was in dire need of one. It's something that you don't realise you need until you got it.  

Overall I don't really see myself leaving this one behind, it comes in a tiny little pot making it beyond essential for travelling. This is staying with me all day long, the days of carrying a massive glass post or cramming those sheet masks are gone. This little buddy is coming with me from now. 

Let me know if you've given any of the Superdrug face masks or skincare a go. I'd love to try more and get a good couple of skincare bits so pop your suggestions down below 

Until next time, Chloe!
