Birchbox UK – April 2017

Birchbox UK April 2017 Boden Collaboration

Birchbox UK April 2017 has landed and the air already feels a bit warmer and the sun brighter.  As soon as I read Birchbox UK were collaborating with Boden for their April 2017 box I was super excited!

Despite never being a Boden customer (although I’ve wanted to, I need more cash please!), I thought this is a dream pairing.  Watch my Birchbox UK April 2017 unboxing video below:

This month’s theme is ‘The Bold and the Beautiful‘ and just look how much LIFE this print brings to my blog!  I’ve mentioned Birchbox teamed up with Boden this month, so it’s no real surprise Boden are behind the gorgeous floral design.

This same design will be one of Boden’s key prints for the upcoming season, which I think is a fantastic idea!  Although it might be a bit too bold for me, thoughts?

Samples

Birchbox UK April 2017 samples

I thought Birchbox and Boden are a dream pairing enough, until I discovered the fantastic samples packed inside!  Below are the samples I received (2 of which are FULL SIZE!), click on the links to find out more details:

Nib + Fab Colour Correcting Concealer (FULL SIZE!)
Polaar IcePure Gentle Scrub with Arctic Cotton
Baija Paris Crème Moana in Fleur de Tiarè
PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Volumizing Lifting Spray
Manna Kadar Cosmetics High Definition Power (FULL SIZE!)

Oh my goodness me!  (Something I kept saying in the video…)  After being left a little disappointed after last month’s box, Birchbox UK April 2017 box has definitely pulled it all back!

I’m really pleased to receive the Nip + Fab Colour Correcting Concealer.  I’ve never used a colour corrector before or any product from this brand.

I’m also happy to receive my choice of Manna Kadar product.  I opted for the High Definition setting powder, over the bronze/highlight duo.  Mostly because I am so intrigued by this product because I’ve never tried any form of high definition make-up!  Unfortunately I couldn’t try this on in the video, so please comment below if you’re after an individual review.

Added Little Extras…

Birchbox UK April 2017 Boden Collaboration

Being a lucky Birchbox UK subscriber I was offered a few added extras – bare with me, there’s quite a few!

First up, before the box even arrived I was offered the chance to buy a discounted Boden branded cardholder.  When big brands team up with Birchbox I tend to take them up on these offers.  This time I got my hands on the above cardholder for £8, down from £15.

As you can see, another extra for me is being treated to £10 off a Boden shop!  Oh, I will be using this, there’s no question about it.

Finally, I’m yet to enter the monthly competition and it’s a good’un this month.  If I snap a picture of my Birchbox on Instagram (and ensure I tag and hashtag all the right handles…), then I could win a £200 Boden voucher and £200 worth of beauty essentials from the Birchbox shop.  Hell yeah, that’s a good comp!

Conclusion 🌼

WELL if you can’t tell I’m back on the Birchbox train and flying a flag of subscriber pride this month.  I think this box has been a HUGE success, ticking off every box for design, samples and collaborator.

I’m not usually fussed over the added extras, but this month Birchbox and Boden have really gone all out.  I appreciate that, long may it continue!
