June Birchbox - French Sole edition

How cute is my pick and mix Birchbox for June! Such a hard decision when I received the email to pick my own box design, three adorable choices to choose from. I did a family voting panel to help me with my choice, and with two kids in the house obviously the sweetie one was the winner! This month Birchbox have teamed up with French Sole, so we also got a matching shoe bag to our box design.

Some lovely items this time, super useful! I'm so in love and excited to receive the STYLondon temporary tattoos. Me and my daughter will get full use out of these as they are non toxic so perfect for kiddies. Amazing design and if you look on their website you will see even more adorable designs, aswell as lovely nail accessories in so many designs that I want so many of and loads more. They even do a monthly subscription box that looks fab. Check them out

I absolutely adored the English Laundry sample fragrance I received in a previous box so I loved that I received another scent, the No7 version, which is a Birchbox Exclusive fragrance. Gorgeous fruity scent!

Another Birchbox exclusive that also smells divine is the Beauty Protector hair oil, I have previously received a beauty protector leave in hair conditioner that whenever I spotted in my draw I pulled out just purely to smell as its amazing. This hair oil is definitely something I would repurchase and is great as it protects your hair from dangerous UV rays and heat damage. It also lasts ages as you only need 1-3 drops at a time on damp hair.

An item I let a little 'ooooo' out loud for was the Yes to Cucumber face wipes, always been intrigued by this brand but was yet to try anything. I have to say the smell is rather overpowering from poking my nose in the packet quickly but hopefully the cucumber elements will be good for my skin.

A rather useful product I also received was the Balance Me super moisturising body wash which is half the size of the normal full size product you can buy. It contains Shea Butter which is an ingredient I always enjoy using in any product as it super hydrating. Again not keen on the smell though! Sorry, fussy nose!

My only makeup product and item I wasn't as impressed to get was a Mirenesse mascara. I have so many mascara so to get through and would have prefered to get was the Pixi lip balm other subscribers received as I love them. A full size of this mascara is £24 and this is approx half the size, so I'm expecting great things from this when I try it. I'm sure i will share on my Twitter account if it's any good, so follow me on there to keep up to date. Links in find me page at top or above my Instagram feed pictures on right of my blog. The Mirenesse mascara does need to be removed with warm water which isn't my favourite way as I love to use my cleansing water of a nighttime to remove the main bulk of my makeup as I'm slightly lazy! Haha

Box total for June (which is approx as was slightly harder to work out this month with some not having sizings printed on) is £35.48. If you would like to sign up to Birchbox yourself please see my referral link beauty box page at the top to gain a little extra for you and me by using that link.
