Birchbox Royally Good - April 2015 // REVIEW

To celebrate the birth of the second royal baby (which should be happening on the 25th of April I believe) Birchbox have given this month's box a royal theme! Named Royally Good, you get the surprise of either receiving the baby blue/mint green box or the pretty pink box, AKA the boy or girl box. Contained within the box there are five luxury products and a bonus product, all for £12.95!

There seemed to be quite a few well known brands popping up in this month's box, including Liz Earle, Percy & Reed and KORRES, but the brand focus was Laura Mercier. You could choose one of three products - their foundation primer (which I know a lot of people adore), mascara or eye pencil!

I was sent the blue box, which I personally love as the design and colours are so pretty! My products were all packaged up in nice woven mesh drawstring bag, and would be handy for me to use as a little makeup bag to pop into my handbag. In my box I found a 0.8g Laura Mercier Longwear Creme Eye Pencil in Black Violet - a creamy deep purple eyeliner pencil. A 40ml KORRES Bergamot & Pear Shower Gel, which quite frankly smells absolutely amazing! An 8ml Lola Barcelona Nail Polish in Gracia - which is a fuchsia pink shade. A 30ml Percy & Reed Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil (yes, that really is its actual name), which does exactly what it says! A 30ml Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, that is a 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator. There was also a 4 week supply of the Inner Me Energise Me Supplements!

The Inner Me tablets actually really interest me as they are supposed to help increase energy levels, improve muscle function and regulate blood sugar level, so I will definitely be using those over the exam period in May and June!

The Birchbox Royally Good Box* definitely is great value for money! Honestly I can't see myself getting much use out of the eye pencil and nail polish, because they just aren't my sort of colours, but I'm really looking forward to trying the others out and I would say that the £12.95 is worth that for those four products alone. With Birchbox being one of the cheaper beauty boxes on the market, and always seeming to keep to a good standard (unlike some other beauty boxes), I'd happily try more from them in the future!
