Birchbox August 2013: Instyle Special Edition

Following on from this morning’s post about Glossy Box, we have this month’s Birchbox – and this one is something special, edited by InStyle. The theme for this one is ‘Summer Nights’ – to keep the Summer theme going in beauty box land. I feel like this box has a little more cohesion with the theme than that of the Glossy Box though…let’s take a peek at what’s inside!

First up we have the Birchbox Eye-mask, which is currently residing in my freezer keeping cool and ready to pamper my peepers after a long day in front of my laptop screen. A simple addition, but really welcome.

Then there’s a packet of ‘Lustrous Locks: Vitamin Complex’ from Inner Me to give hair a boost from the inside out. I haven’t tried these yet, but have added them into my ‘from the inside out’ beauty regime and will report back when I have better idea of how they’re going.

There’s a little bottle of Molton Brown – always handy for travel. A couple of skincare treats –  Bluemandarines Skinlife Energetic Cellular Cream which I took away with me overnight this weekend and it’s rather wonderful! Then there’s the Gerda Spillman ‘Hydro Pearls’ primer that leaves the skin a really fresh and hydrated glow.

Then there’s a wonderful sized Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – a great product with a cult reputation for good reason. Then finally there’s the lovely LAQQ&Co Lip Crayon in a gorgeous pale pink shade – this is the first thing I’ve tried from the brand and it’s definitely given me a taste to try more. Really love this lip crayon, it’s gorgeous.

Overall, Birchbox massively wins the battle of the beauty boxes for me this month. Excited to see what comes next!
