April Birchbox 2019

Card reading 'Your a gem' and a selection of five beauty products laid out inside a boxThis month's Birchbox came with a lift up lid, mirror and magnetic closure. I'd already been thinking of combining some old empty Birchbox's to make myself a jewellery box but in receiving this month's box it was just perfect to add as the top compartment.

This month in my box I received...

ESTATE Cosmetics 

Dew Me Baked Highlighter

Full size RRP £10

Silky smooth baked powder to swipe over your cheekbones, brow bone and eyes to give off a soft glow.


The POREfessional 

Sample size RRP £28

I've had this product before and I love it. It makes your skin feel ultra soft and smooth ready to apply your foundation and other makeup products.


Diamond Eye Pads

Full size RRP £4.99

A pend of caffeine and diamond powder (yes, really!) to hydrate, de-puff and brighten your eyes.

I'm feeling a bit ill today so when I went for a nap I put these on. They was nice and cooling. I left them on for longer than suggested. I did notice a difference when I took them off. Normally I have to put concealer under my eyes as they're a bit off colour but when I took them of I noticed the colour under my eyes was brighter and more blended with my skin tone and they looked less tired.

They was really easy to use and apply. A nice little treat for my eyes. It's not something I'd probably buy myself as they're a bit expensive for just two eye pads but it was nice to try them out and give my eyes a a bit of TLC.


Body SoufflĂ©

Sample size RRP £16.45

A lightly whipped cream to nourish your body.

Balance Me

Wonder Eye Cream

Sample size RRP £20

A multitasking eye cream using chamomile, coconut, cucumber, rose hip and carrot oils to de-puff, brighten and soften and smooth the eyes.
