This month it's time for us to embrace US. So who wants to know what's inside the box? If you're new to Birchbox they are one of the main leaders in the beauty box subscription game. Each month you will receive five deluxe samples and travel sized samples and these will be with makeup, skin care, body care or hair care. It's a great way to discover new products that you wouldn't normally come across if it wasn't for this little beauty subscription. So without further ado let's take a closer look. 

Forgive Me Suzie. Liquid Eyeshadow in Fairy Dust. RRP | £8

Meanwhile I tend to stick to powder when it comes to choosing eyeshadows, I am always happy to step outside my comfort zone and try different products. This long lasting metallic eye shadow really makes it easier to create a statement in one swoop. We all know that many of us women are always pressed for time whether that is heading our for the school run, work, going to a big meeting or a  catching up with a friend. I received the shade Fairy Dust and I really like wearing this with my everyday makeup, it really suited my complexion but you could build this up for a night time look if you wanted to. 

The Beauty Crop. Wing Woman Liquid Eyeliner. RRP | £14

Being a beauty blogger, you could say I have used my fair share of eyeliners. I have had some amazing products that I will always go back to and others that I will always avoid and never recommend. Yes this one has a deep black formula that will help define my eyes the way I want without smudging. But it falls short on it's staying power which is a shame. 

Balance Me. Vitamin C Repair Serum. RRP | £32

Vitamin C is great for your skin and it is something that we all should be using more in our skincare routine. I discovered a Vitamin C Essence about two years ago and it has been so good for my skin and it is something that I just cannot be without. So I was more than happy to have this little gem in my box this month. This Vitamin C Repair Serum from Balance Me has been formulated to battle the beginning signs of ageing, yes I need some of this now I'm in my thirties. It has really helped with pigmentation and the hydraulic acid has been sooo good with hydrating my skin and leave me with a healthy glow. 

Daily Concepts. Dual Texture Body Scrubber. RRP | £6.95 

The innovative texture with micro scrubbers technology which is pretty perfect for a daily soft wash or for an exfoliating wash. I also think that it's pretty cool that they have a label with an indicator that fades to let you know when you need to replaced your mini scrubber. I am so glad that this one was in my Birchbox this month as my skin is breaking out and no matter what I try my makeup ends up slipping off my face after a few hours. I use my facial cleanser along with my exfoliating scrub and I have noticed a difference in my skin. I have consistently used this for a few days in a row it has helped that skin on the top be removed, leaving newer, healthier skin showing. The rough side exfoliates, the soft side helps rinse. 

Luxliss. Argan & Marula Conditioner. RRP | £20

Every now and then we have to make time for a little deep conditioning. Deep conditioners or hair masks are an essential part of a healthy hair care routine, whether you're natural or not, and no matter your curl type. And yet, so many people don't know how to properly deep condition their hair, or neglect the practice altogether! However, with this Luxliss. Argan & Marula Conditioner you can treat your hair to a little extra nourishment in one simple step. After one use it has left my hair feeling silky smooth, nourished and super healthy.

In a nutshell, this is a pretty great box and what better way to celebrate 'us women' than with a pamper session, a killer eyeliner for a handbag or some serum to brighten our skin. I really enjoyed the products that Birchbox has this month and I am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for April.
