Birchbox Review: Blooming Lovely Box

A metal tin with a floral pattern on. In front of the tine are beauty products including a spray bottle with a pink liquid in, a tube of hair conditioner, a turquoise mascara, a bottle of pink nail polish, a face mask packet and a paper booklet with 'Blooming Lovely' written on the front.

What I loved about this edition is that it came in a lovely tin and I was eager to try out the products and I was happy to see some more eco-friendly products in this edition.

I'm now using the tin in my bathroom to keep my face products neat and tidy.

(Products from led to right)

Rose Water Facial Mist

Grace & Stella

I like the rose scent to this but I didn't really feel like it hydrated my skin but it did feel refreshed. After a few uses though I did start to feel the benefits and my skin felt more hydrated. Personally I find it nice to use as a toner so I'll soapy it after washing my face. I'll spray it on and pat it on my face and let it soak in and then I'll apply some moisturiser. One downside is that the spray nozzle could do which having more of a misting effect.

Argon Oil & Marula Conditioner


When my Dad washed my hair one of the first things he said about it was how nice this conditioner smelt. When it was wet it felt lovely and smooth and once it was dried my hair was so lush and shiny. My hair only gets washed once a week and I can honestly say that for the whole week my hair remained in great condition; it hardly got that 'my hair needs washing' look and it remained silky and smooth.

Bloom Mascara

Manna Kadar

I haven't tried this product as I don't want to open it until I've finished my current mascara.

Green Nail Lacquer in 'Angel's Trumpet'


This is a lovely colour on my nails and a very 'me' colour. Two coats and you have a nice solid colour on your nails and it goes on really well.

The company has designed this product to be as natural as possible with a '9-free formula' which mean that they avoid 9 toxic ingredients like formaldehyde and toluene and opting instead for botanical alternative such as bamboo extract and cane sugar. To be honest I couldn't;t tell the difference between this polish and my others other than the scent of this one doesn't have this typical nail polish smell which is probably because of this 9-free formula.

It's defiantly a brand I would look for in the future and look into more. I will also see if they have created a nail polish remover and if they don't I would like to suggest to the if they could come up with one.

Rose Infused Sheet Mask


I love this face mask. the floral scent was lovely and my skin felt so much better when I took it off and I didn't need to use moisturiser. Even at the end of the day my skin was still feeling the benefits. I also love the fact that this product was plant based and vegan and that the mask itself was biodegradable and made from bamboo which is more sustainable for the planet which are all things that are important to me. I would defiantly recommend and purchase this product other for myself or as a gift.
