BIRCHBOX: July 2021 - Countryside Charm

Nothing beats escaping to a little countryside staycation for relaxation. Sometimes changing your routine and getting into nature can be exactly what you need. Because everything is still up in the air regarding travel, we have decided that we would book a family staycation to the countryside this year. We cannot wait to soak up the sun, breath in the fresh air, and take in the picturesque views. So its so good to see that Birchbox are encouraging subscribers to book a staycation and reminisce with their Countryside Charm box.

As always there are five products inside that include a bunch of amazing brands and a clean and vegan brand ARROW that Birchbox have just recently launched. Countryside Charm beauty box is all about taking a break from the hustle and bustle to get closer to nature . With a cute little floral beauty bag to remind you to get closer to nature, how can you not get involved.

Every Birchbox subscriber with get a Re.Fil Beauty Balm in either Dark Green, Light Green, or Peach and a handy Microfibre Hair Towel. There is also a new vegan brand ARROW Radiant Skin Moisturiser launched by Birchbox as well as a Beauty Pro Foot Therapy Collagen Infused Bootie. All great products to help you relax and unwind.

Re.Fil. Beauty Balm. RRP | £11

Everyone needs a good lip balm for the summer, whether you're sunbathing, exploring or walking. Those lips are often something that slip our minds when we are enjoying the sunshine. However, this is so much more than a lip balm. With so many uses, from lips, to cuticles, to dry patches, and even taming your brows, this is your ultimate all-over balm. You can also refill whenever you run out too.

So it was great to see that Birchbox included are really handy beauty balm in their box this month. Every subscriber will get a full size Re-Fil Beauty Balm in either Dark Green, Light Green, or Peach. Made with a blend of natural oils, hyaluronic acid, ceramides and squalene, it hydrates and conditions dry skin, helps promote skin barrier function, and leaves a protective layer that's light and soft.

Arrow. Radiant Skin Moisturiser. RRP | £18

Birchbox have launched their very own clean and vegan beauty line that was created to help simplify routines, something that I can totally get behind. This ARROW Radiant Skin Moisturiser is a lightweight daily moisturiser has a subtle sheen that illuminates your skin as it hydrates and soothes. I love using a lightweight moisturiser in the mornings because I don't have time to let it sink into the sink before I need to leave for the school run. 

Birchbox. Microfibre Hair Towel. RRP | £15

We all know that wet hair becomes most vulnerable to breakage, and always needs some extra TLC. By being too heavy-handed with a towel can expose cuticle edges, causing frizz and strand damage, which is why gently patting or scrunching the hair minimises that risk. I love that Birchbox have included a superfine microfibre hair towel in their box this month, just in time for days at the beach too. The Microfibre Hair Towels comes in a lovely pinky peach and the material feels so much softer than a regular hair towel. It has quick drying material that absorbs water faster meaning that it help eliminates damage and doesn't take long for your hair to dry. 

Phillip Kingsley. Egyptian Jasmine & Mandarin Elastizer. RRP | £37

Now this is something that is pretty essential for all types of hair, and we could all give our hair something extra to ensure we get those lustrous locks. The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is a pre-shampoo intensive moisturising treatment that aim to deliver elasticity, bounce and shine to hair. You apply in sections to damp hair and then wrap it up in a towel. Leave on for 15 minutes and it generates a heat with your scalp that activates the treatment process. Then you simply wash off with your normal shampoo and conditioner. I tend to change my shampoo and conditioner on a regular basis as my hair get use to products so quickly. This pre-treatment creates a health to your hair that makes styling easier because hair is softer, more shiny and just full of life again, so it something that I definitely needed in my life that's for sure.

Beauty Pro. Foot Therapy Collagen Infused Bootie. RRP | £4.95

If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that Beauty Pro is my go to brand whenever I feel its time for a little self care. Beauty Pro know a thing or two about masks, so of course they know their stuff when it comes to our feet too. This double layered bootie with removeable toe tips, enriched with shea butter and marine collagen, hydrates and nourishes feet while salicylic acid dissolves the skin debris (er, eurgh). You have to go and check out all the great offers on Beauty Pro* as there is something for everyone.

So what did you think? Are you a Birchbox fan? If not, you should at least try a couple of boxes. A monthly Birchbox subscription, with no long-term commitment, costs just £10 (+ £2.95 P&P) per month.
