The sad news is my Birchbox UK May 2017 box was late, just like April’s. The good news is there were two full size items inside! So I didn’t feel too disappointed.
As my box was late the design wasn’t a surprise to me, thanks to it being plastered all over my Instagram feed. But luckily most of the samples remained a mystery…
Birchbox UK May 2017
That’s not the only tweak Birchbox have made, they’ve actually made a fairly big change to their service; a newly launched loyalty programme! But first, the samples…
Birchbox UK May 2017 had a little to live up to compared to last months box. Although I knew already one full size item I’d be receiving, I wasn’t expecting a second! Find out below what I received and click on the links to find out more details:
Now for my own little detail with what I thought of the products! I opted for the Vanilla Frosting colour for the Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow because I already had enough grey/black smokey eyeshadows and eyeshadow sticks. Plus it’s a great addition for crazy festival make up!
The Marsk eyeshadow also linked up nicely with the mascara. Doucce are not a brand I know, but I LOVE the fact they’ve described their mascara as punk!
The Whish body cream and Kueshi will be used as usual and might not bring any major revelations to my routine. However the SKIN79 2 step nose pack looks a lot of fun to me! I can’t wait to try it.
Hello Birchbox Benefits!
I’ve been a Birchbox subscriber now for around three years (I know, three years!) and it was great to hear I was finally going to be rewarded. Birchbox Benefits is a new loyalty programme that rewards subscribers who’ve been with Birchbox for six months or more!
We get much of the same benefits as all subscribers, such as choosing a product or your box design every month and free delivery when we review our boxes. But we have these two added little extras too:
- First Chance to choose our product or box design.
- 15% off everything in the Birchbox Shop.
Personally, I’m really pleased to see this introduced. I’m already a big fan of the ASOS points scheme, now if only TopShop would follow suit…
The two full size items in my Birchbox UK May 2017 box add up to an impressive £17,39, more than the total of my box! It’s hard not to be happy when that happens.
Currently there are absolutely no teasers, clues or hints on what we might have in store for next month’s Birchbox. Although here’s hoping it’ll arrive on time for me at least!
