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…

March Favorites - Makeup and Skincare



March has been a crazy month, an expensive month to say the least. After eating all my easter chocolate and spending way more than I should have on makeup and clothes this month I am ready to sit down and tell you about the makeup and skincare I have been loving this month. 

First up is the NYX HD Green concealer, recently there has been a whole color correcting craze. Everyone was going mad for the color concealers that help to hide any issues with your skin. I picked up this concealer as my acne has been out of control recently. With them being redder than ever I decided to try this out. The consistency isn't as creamy as I would like and it does take a bit of time to blend in oerfectly. Nevertheless the stay power and finish of this is amazing. You definitely need to apply foundation/concealer/ or even a bb cream over this. But it lasts all day and helps to cover any redness perfectly. This is priced at £5.50 which for drugstore brands isn't badly priced. For my first concealer product from NYX I am really impressed. 



Next up is another product is the NYX Liquid Suede liquid lipstick in the shade Soft Spoken. I am really into the deeper colors at the moment with lipsticks. As I don't tend to find light shades that suit me I have really been loving the mauve shades. For me this shade is a mauve berry type shade that sits comfortably on my lips. This stays on all day even after eating a sandwich and a roast dinner. For £6.50 I am beyond in love with this. This does have a chemical scent to it which I particularly don't mind. 












In terms of skincare, I have really been liking the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cooling Moisturiser. I picked this up during one of Boots' 3 for 2 offers at the beginning of the month and haven't stopped using it since. I love the gel texture to this, with it sinking into the skin so quickly this is perfect for those mornings when I'm having to rush out the door. With the added tea tree this works really well with my spots to help reduce the size and redness of them. I wasn't really expecting to love this, but this has become my favorite moisturiser so far and at £3.59 for 75ml you would be silly not to try this.



Until next time, Chloe!
