This month Birchbox celebrates its fifth birthday and you can
get involved by visiting the fabulous pop up shop at Selfridges where you can
build your own box.
I love Selfridges, admittedly not near Christmas time when
it’s busier than a bar giving away free cocktails but it’s such an iconic
London shopping experience. The beauty hall is simply gorgeous and makes me
want to buy everything on sight and don’t get me started on the shoe floor!
So how does it work?
You pick up your box and pouch and then make your way round
the sample stand picking as you go. For £15 you get six deluxe samples which
includes two makeup products. With 24 different products to choose from the
hardest thing was whittling it down to just six.
What’s in my box?
I chose the following products:
Benefit the POREfessional
Wild About Beauty nutrilips gloss in Astrid – which is a
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
Bliss lemon + sage body butter
Beauty Protector protect & oil
This Works deep sleep pillow spray
I love Bliss products and the lemon and sage body butter is gorgeous
and really moisturises the skin without it feeling sticky. I’ve also been
loving This Works deep pillow spray, I’m not sure if it actually helps send me
off to sleep but the scent is really calming.
Birchbox is only at Selfridges until the end of September so
make sure you check it out before it goes.
