Birchbox UK – April 2018

April is the first full month of spring and conjures up images of blooming flowers with clear blue skies. But at least we have a heat wave of sorts on the horizon (BBQ anyone?). Oh look, I’ve started a Birchbox post describing the weather again. (Sadly last month it was the beast from the east that introduced my post!)

My point is… Birchbox UK April 2018 have all the springtime feels wrapped up in its box this month. With a totally appropriate brand as the bow on top, too.

Unboxing: Birchbox UK April 2018

Officially, this month’s theme is ‘Brighten Up Your Day’. But the bigger deal is that Birchbox UK have collaborated with Cath Kidston to celebrate their 25th birthday! Spring time, flowers and blue skies? Cath Kidston’s prints are ALL about that. It’s no wonder the brand were born in this month.

Samples

In their promises to deliver ‘a little sunshine to your month’, Birchbox UK April 2018 have delivered us 5 unique beauty treats…

  • Cath Kidston Hand Cream
    Well I wasn’t expecting this! Although I’m fully aware of Cath Kidston, I’m not a regular customer to their brand (no diss, that’s just the way it is) so I had no idea they made hand cream! This smells lovely, with a fragrance of with jasmine and orange flower, which is a Birchbox exclusive too.
  • ModelCo Baked Highlighter
    Now this sample I was expecting, as Birchbox subscribers were given the choice of two colours before receiving the box. I went for Moonshine, which gives a subtle rose pink glow.
  • Lumene Overnight Bright Sleeping Cream
    Since receiving the Thermaliv Night Cream in January’s box, I’ve grown accustomed to night creams. This sounds just as dreamy too with Cloudberry seed extract, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. (Hmm I feel sleepy all ready…)
  • Hask Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner
    Just what my hair needs right now; a ultra-restorative, revitalising, re-hydrating deep conditioner! (My weekend pamper session is sorted.)
  • Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel (FULL SIZE!)
    And to top it off… a full-size product worth £8.60, just short of the total price of my box. What’s great about these brow gels is that they keet your brows neat and tidy, whilst the colour adds structure to your face too.

Added little extra: As is the usual protocol when Birchbox collaborate with brands, we’ve been treated to 15% discount at Cath Kidston! In-store and online, with plenty of time to peruse any treats. (until 31st May).

Box round up

Birchbox UK April 2018 has continued to add a little sunshine to our month… but I knew last month’s box was going to be hard to beat. (Still the best box this year so far, IMHO.) I think they’ve really delivered on the brand collaboration front though, and there’s the right balance between beauty, hair and skincare.

SPOILER FOR NEXT MONTH: Our May sneak peak printed on the back of the accompanying leaflet see’s the return of New York brand Doucce. We received their punk mascara (way back in May 2017), which delivered on lashes with VOLUME. This time we’ll be given a choice of two different coloured lip stains. Let’s hope they can deliver on lip colour too…
