Birchbox amazing under £20 Deals

Good morning everyone.  I have had an obsession with subscription boxes at the moment, not only are they great value for money but it is an amazing opportunity to try products that you wouldn’t normally buy, it is also a great way to try out products that you maybe have had your eye on for a while.

I have recently bought the following subscription boxes

  • Look Fantastic – summer edition
  • Look Fantastic – Best Of British Edition
  • Glossybox – August box with bonus box ( Still Awaiting Delivery Due To It Being Sent to My Old Address)
  • Flamingo Candle – Melt Crowd Box (still awaiting delivery)

So far I have been impressed by the look fantastic boxes so I am excited for the delivery of the others. I have also been having a look at any other subscription boxes I can try out and the one that keeps popping up when I type subscription boxes in to a google search engine that I haven’t tried yet is Birchbox so I decided to go on to their website to have a look and this is what I found.


A bit about Birchbox – Is it different from other beauty boxes? YES

Birchbox differ slighty to other beauty boxes as the boxes are customised for the customer by the customer, you fill in what they call a beauty profile and based upon what you input in to the beauty profile that determine what you receive in your monthly beauty box.  So unlike other subscription beauty boxes where everyone receives the same items in their box, in this box you will have items that are for your skin type, hair type, and make up preference.  Everything is tailored to you. If you like the sound of this box click the link to be taken to their site, create your beauty profile and start enjoying your box. <a href=”http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=Jij/MSaml1c&offerid=304469.218&subid=0&type=4″><IMG border=”0″ alt=”BIRCHBOX UK” src=”http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=Jij/MSaml1c&bids=304469.218&subid=0&type=4&gridnum=13″&gt;

Whats New This Month?

This month at Birchbox you are receiving a free Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner, this is reported to be loved by our U.S friends.  You can get this freebie in two colours, coco brown or a sultry purple.  Also this month instead of your five beauty products coming to you in the trademark box, you will receive it in an exclusive neon beauty bag that is available in four colours.

Deals And Offers

Once you have had your birchbox delivered and you have had a chance to try out some of the products inside you can go to the birchbox shop where you can purchase full-sized products.  They have amazing deals within the shop such as:

  • Under £20 Section – Which consists of brands such as Benefit and up and coming brands as well.
  • Value Kits Section – There some lovely gift sets available and there is quite a variety of them that you can bag for under £20.  Although there are some much pricier gift sets they are still great value for money, they have everything from sets for him, sets for the nail fanatic, beautiful gift sets for those of us that like everything to smell like you can consume it (even if you can’t), and sets to make you feel like a goddess with their skin softening products.
  • 75% Off Summer Sale – This sale is amazing, there 16 pages of discounted products for you to choose from, and of course you do not have to limit yourself to just selecting products that you tried within your beauty box, because some of these products are so inexpensive you can afford to buy a full-sized version for a fraction of the price.  Here are some of the best discounted items I have found within this sale.

The Best Items Within The 75% Sale List:

I can go on and on with this list as there loads of amazing deals. All those deals and you are also getting free shipping on orders worth £35 upwards.  Go on grab yourself a haul now while this sale lasts.

Have I added this beauty box to my list of subscription boxes?? YES

I have just gone and ordered myself one of these boxes, although this month they are not boxes, it is this month that you’re getting the exclusive neon bag worth £8!!

So maybe once all of my beauty boxes have arrived I can give you all the low down on the best value for money, the best brands, etc.

I have also found an obsession with candle subscription boxes which work exactly the same as beauty boxes but with candles ( as if I had to point that out) But that’s for another post.

So What Did You Buy To Receive Your Freebie?? – Here’s how to get as much bang for your buck as poss

There are a few ways you can buy items to become eligible for the free box but if you want to get as much bang for your buck as possible which is what I and my blog are all about, then this is how I bought my boxes in order to get as much items as possible.

There are a few boxes in their collection one of which looks amazing but unfortunately but not surprisingly has sold out, and it would have been my first choice and that was the “Girls Night Out Box” which consists of anything and everything you would need for a night out on the town with your besties, but as it is no longer available I won’t go in to listing the items, The price for this box was only £20.

So instead I chose the “Glamour Summer Edit” which is only £20 but is actually worth £104, and consists of the following items:

  • Aurelia Probiotic Skincare – This is a cream cleanser, use with the muslin cloth which is also included to lift away dead skin cells. It is said to make the skin clearer and brighter
  • Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolour in HD Devotion – This colour looks great on all skin tones, this is smooth and velvety in a gel formula for longer lasting colour
  • ST TROPEZ Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mist – This is a light weight formula designed to leave you looking tanned with an airbrushed effect and with no horrible smell, instead it leaves the skin smelly lovely with a fresh fragrance
  • Ladival SPF 30 – everyone’s skin needs protection and that’s what you can expect from this product, Its waterproof formula protects against skin giving 4 times more protection
  • WOW Mask – This is a luxury facial mask that reduces wrinkles and minimises pores leaving you with instantly younger looking skin.
  • Grounded Coffee Scrub Uk, Chocolate And Orange Body Scrub – YUMMY!! How nice does this sound, This will leave your skin silky smooth it has almond oil and other ingredients that are full of anti-oxidants to protect and strengthen.
  • ORIBE Dry Texturising Spray – I have never heard of this product but upon a little researxh it is popular amongst celebs, it is said to smell beautiful, and have oil absorbing properties which keeps roots lifted and locks smelly beautiful all day.
  • NUXE Prodigiuex Shower Oil – Use in the shower, before tanning it has a little shimmer in it which leaves the skin with a slight glow, this smells of sweet almond, vanilla and orange blossom, Mmmmmm!!

This box is only £20 so in order to qualify for the freebie box the cheapest way to go would be to “Build Your Own Box” You can choose from a few different boxes, you can have a 3 item box for £8.99, a 6 item box for £12.99 or a 9 item box for £16.99.  I went for the 3 item box.  There is a variety of amazing products from tanning, make – up and body butter to fragrances and even bath salts.  You just select what Items you want, I chose.

  • ST TROPEZ Gradual In Shower Lotion – Now I do not know how this works but its like magic you apply in the shower to reveal a beautiful tan, amazing!!
  • Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave In Conditioner – apply to damp towel dried hair for a silky smooth great hair day.
  • Lipcote The Original Lipstick Sealer – Apply this on top of your fave lippie and it will make sure that is transfer resistant and stays all day.

So once you add this Build your own box to your basket you then become available for the free box.  So for  the price of £28.99 you get a whole range of products that are well worth over £150!!!

How Many Products!!!!!!

14 brand name products or only £28.99. And you are completely taken care of, from top to toe you can give yourself a total make over or complete pampering with this awesome customised by you for you.  You won’t find that anywhere else.  I just ordered mine last night so I cannot wait to do my unboxing on this when it finally arrives.


Oh and that’s not all – FREE POSTAGE AND PACKAGING TOO!!!

The offers just keep on coming as you will receive free postage and packaging with this order aswell.

Hurry before they are all gone, the “girls night out box” is already completely gone and would have been my first choice so don’t let that happen to you and click the link to be taken to their website now and claim your free mini hair care beauty box – Get yours now sweetie, before they are all gone

Lookfantastic #LFSUMMERLOVIN Beauty Box

Look what I got in the post this morning.  Yeah, when I saw the post a bit to scared to come in the gate because of Lucky barking at him I was more than happy to run to his rescue when I saw this beauty in his hand, well all I could see was a box but I swear it was shouting on me.

As soon as I got it I opened it couldn’t wait to have a peek inside and neither could my daughter which was a bit weird!!


Inside the box

Inside there was an ELLE magazine, another magazine, this is the mag that you get that gives you in depth details of what is in your box. Then I got to the good bit and started opening the trademark black paper, there inside was a Goof Proof brow pencil from benefit, a in transit camera close up Mask Moisturiser and primer in one, in the magazine that tells you a bit more about the product, it says that this is one of Victoria Beckhams favourite beauty items ooooooh, if its good enough for oor Vicky then its good enough for me or anyone really, anyway next there is a Kabelo silk ANTI- Frizz cream, this is meant to make the hair beautifully soft, next up was the NUXE multi-purpose dry oil for face, body and hair, this goes on smooth and leaves no oily residue well according to the very helpful mag, my fave looking item was the bellapierre cosmetics pink cheek and lip stain, as soon as I got this out of the box I tried this on and it looked lovely. Then last but not least was the plastic baubles fom MiTi which do a lot less damage to yout hair, none of the pther products I have used before I have tried but I have tried these baubles so I can say from experience that these are good unless you really want the hair to stay in place as the do not hold the hair as tight as the elastic hair baubles do.

There will be a youtube video posted soon using all of these products and letting you guys know my brutally honest opinion on them, I also have a glossybox on the way so I am gping to be really thorough with my findings of these products and the overall value for money of the actual box.  Also a post will follow.
