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. 

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

That Bubble Mask Love

Oh here we are, yet again reviewing another face mask. For once I got this in a pretty good deal so it means I had to get it right? Praise Superdrug for the 3 for 2 deals and a free mask on top. This is a different kind of mask than the usual, it’s a Skin Republic Charcoal Bubbling Mask £5.49 which let me tell you it’s the funniest mask I have put on in a while. I’ve always wanted to try a bubbling mask and with this one having charcoal in it I was more intrigued. 

I’ve got a couple of breakouts at the moment that have sadly appeared, so this was needed at the right time. Also, who doesn’t need a bit of TLC sometimes? I was on FaceTime to someone as I applied it and we both got a lot of laughs, it was nice to have some time to relax and look after my skin at the same time. 

After giving my skin a good clean and a scrub I applied this mask and left it on for about 15 minutes. You have to rub the packet first to get the bubbles activated, then apply it to the face and you’ll feel the magic happening soon. It’s got a weird sensation to it, with the foaming bubbling gimmick to it there is a weird feeling to this. The longer the mask is on the more intense the bubbling gets, it’s weird to sit there and listen to it but it’s even weirder to see the transformation. The mask bubbles on both sides so it really is a weird experience. 

Once the mask has done all the bubbling it can you simply take it off and massage the excess into the skin. My skin had a tight feel to it afterwards, there aren’t many masks that can really leave a firming effect on my skin but this made it even have a little glow as well. In terms of those breakouts, it really helped to calm them down, I haven’t had anymore appear since and the results this mask has left my skin it is dreamy. It all seems to work great with my skin and has really helped give it a change. 

Overall, I’m really impressed with this. It’s a new kind of mask for me, it’s something that looked after my skin and made me laugh at the same time. I wouldn’t use this a lot as I think the effect would wear off quite quickly. But it’s a great thing to use every now and then if my skin needs a quick bit of love this comes in handy. 

Let me know if you’ve tried a bubbling mask before? I really want to get into them and see if they really have an effect. Let me know what your picks and misses are

Until next time, Chloe!
