Birchbox X Rifle Paper Co.

Well....what an amazing and beautiful Birchbox this month! They have teamed up with the fabulous Rifle Paper Co. with this absolutely stunning box themed 'Blooming Marvellous!'. I'm a stationary addict so when I heard and saw the amazing box designs I was over the moon.

I love a Birchbox choose your own emails, where we get to pick different box designs, products etc for our boxes. Last month I received an email asking to pick between two beautiful Rifle Paper Co. themed boxes and it also gave me to option to upgrade my box! The last time we could upgrade I unfortunately couldn't take part as it was a Skinnydip London phone case, as my phone is so old they didn't do my style. But this time I could....

For an extra £4 to our box we could choose to received these two adorable notepads from Rifle Paper Co. I was so excited, so I ordered and paid for them straight away! I'm soooo happy with them. Not only are they are the perfect keep in your handbag size, but they are amazing quality and the most perfect art designs. I had to have I made a Birchbox points order on the same day I received my box. Check out my Instagram account to see more!

The first thing I noticed (other than the cute notepads), was the even cuter little Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse oil. I'm so glad I received this in my box as I'm already a massive fan, so this mini is perfect for taking away with me. I use this product on my hair but it's a great multi-purpose oil that can be used over the face and body also. RRP from £17. 

I knew every box this month was going to be receiving a Benefit Cosmetics deluxe sample, mine was the They're Real mascara. I was secretly hoping for the newbie Dew the Hoola bronzer as I love trying out new releases but a mini mascara is always handy, especially a Benefit one. I actually prefer using mini mascaras nowadays, I find them easier to apply with the shorter wand and find they last just as long.

A Birchbox exclusive, Cynthia Rowley Beauty eyeliner in shade 'black'! Again another fab size but this formula wasn't creamy at all compared to previous products I have tried from this range. I found it very difficult to get the product to apply and had to go over and over to gain the intensity as it was so dry at first, but it has got better with more use and the staying power is amazing. RRP £11. 

I have soooo many hand creams and I end up using them on my feet sometimes as I haven't got many foot creams. So the Kueshi foot care cream was a very welcome sample in my box this month. It has a nice fresh subtle scent and really softens my skin. RRP £12.

Another Birchbox exclusive in my box was the Parlor detangling leave in conditioner. This is a really good moisture boost for the hair and contains sweet almond extract and vitamin B5 helping to add shine to the hair, and even helps against heat protection. RRP £17. 

So I think you will agree it's a lovely, lovely box this month! Well done Birchbox it's a real winner with me. I'm super excited for next month's box also as my sneak peek tells me we will get to try more from one of my favourite beauty brands Spectrum Collections! Can't wait for that, and it will also be a pick your own product email! Eeekkkk. Haha.

I stopped buying Birchbox a few months back as I was finding them a little repetitive. This box however is beautiful! And I love that there were both Benefit & Nuxe samples included. Boxes like this make me want to subscribe again.
