July Birchbag | Beauty

This is totally not a box, it's a Birchbag! I did do a little research online so to be honest I knew I'd be getting a bag instead of a box but I was still pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It's a fun summer theme and there were 4 different colours of bags, I got the St. Tropez bright orange colour which I absolutely love. I'm definitely going to take this bag on holiday with me when I go away with my favourite dear, Vernia, in September. 

That's enough about the bag, this month I am really happy with the product selection. If you read my Birchbox posts you'll know that recently I've been a little unimpressed, I think it's partly because I have been subscribed for a so long, I've kinda seen it all. Just so you know I will probably review a few of these products separately so that you guys can have a bit of a closer look. 

Firstly we have the Unani Aloe Vera Gel, I think aloe vera is a must have for all holiday products, let's face it no matter how hard we try, sometimes we still get burned. I'm fairly pale so I can burn pretty easily and aloe vera is just perfect for soothing skin irritation so this is a nice handy one to take away with me. We also have the BioNike Cleansing water, another product I'm actually pretty happy to try out. It is also a fragrance free formula and apparently very gentle on the skin. 

This month there is a Soigne nail polish and I love receiving nail polishes my only issue is the colour, I received Menthe. Don't get me wrong it's a great colour but it's very similar to Mint Candy Apple by Essie which I already have. Also it seems that every time Birchbox send me nail polish, more often than not I get these minty shades, where are all the pretty pink/nude shades? Next is a Benefit product and let's face it, it wouldn't quite be Birchbox if benefit didn't make an appearance. This month we recieved a sample of the Dream Screen which is a sun tan lotion for the face with a whopping 45 SPF which I think is fantastic and I'll definitely be trying this out. 

The next product I am super excited about it is the Pop Beauty eye shadow trio in Peach Parfait, it's such a pretty little trio. I'm going to write a separate post but eye one is super shimmery and I know I'm gonna fall in love with it. My final item was a nail file, I mean what more can be said about this item? My only issue is that it's a very coarse board and I think this could damage a break my nails more because I have quite weak nails anyway. 

This month's Birchbag/Birchbox was a real winner. 

What did you get in yours?


  1. When i was deciding on a box i looked back at the past few BirchBox ones and was unimpressed with them. This one looks really good though! I subscribed to You Beauty Discovery Box and love it so far x

    1. Yeah the last few have been pretty bad if I'm honest, I'm on the hunt for a new box actually so I may give that one you've suggested a go! I'll check your blog for a review!xx

  2. This looks like a great selection this month - I love the bag instead of the box, and that polish is gorgeous xx
