Something else that got me really excited was the Ciate London Paint Pot which I received in the colour Maybe Baby. It’s such an elegant, classic shade and I’ve recently even really impressed with Ciate’s offering – the pretty bottles are a treat to look at but also the formula glides on beautifully and I find them to be fantastically long lasting.
Just when I thought I was over beauty boxes, I heard that Birchbox had teamed up with the quintessentially British magazine that is Tatler to produce a limited edition Birchbox. In conjunction the magazine’s ‘Best of British’ supplement, and chosen by Tatler’s Beauty Editor Francesca White, the new Birchbox is teaming with British brands and some of my very favourite products too!
If you’re new to Birchbox (I am!) then i’ll give a brief explanation as to how it works. You can sign up, or subscribe to Birchbox for just £10 a month, and then every 30 days you get a box of new goodies to try out, specifically chosen by the beauty experts at Birchbox. The boxes contain luxe sample sizes (and sometimes full size products too!) of specially selected products – even sometimes new launches – so that you can try them out without committing to the full size product. You can then even purchase the products from the Birchbox website when you find something you love. With the Tatler Birchbox, it’s a limited edition so you can buy this box for a one off cost of £25, with the products within the box worth well over £60!
Ok so onto the fun bit – what’s inside?!
Firstly, an incredible introductory offer for a year’s subscription to Tatler for just £12 – including iPad and iPhone editions! I’ve already signed up to this – such a fantastic offer! But what about the makeup products I hear you ask! Well, hands down this has got to be my favourite beauty box, ever. All homegrown beauty brands ranging from my absolute favourite, Liz Earle, to brands which are new to me, Dr Jacksons, all the goodies are the Best of British, and oh wow. There’s some good un’s!
There’s the Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Cream, one which Ive tried before and absolutely melt as soon as I get a hint of the indulgent fragrance. It’s a rich blend of rose, shea butter and evening primrose, and the 40ml sample is ideal for popping in an overnight bag or even to pamper yourself after the gym.
