Birchbox what’s was in June box, this is my first box.

Birchbox June 2017 review

This is my first birchbox.
I am pleasantly surprised with the contents, and the purse the contents came in.

Basically I am trying out different beauty box subscriptions, I had my run with glossybox. And now trying out other boxes.

The theme for June birchbox is Day tripping, has 5 items
The contents are as follows –
-Full size MeechNMia brow pencil
I think it’s a browny black colour I received. It is used on eye brows to even out uneveness. Cruelty free formula. Not really sure if I will use it to be honest, but can maybe use it as a eyeliner.

-Amiko perk up dry shampoo.
Well I don’t really use dry shampoo, for my Afro hair, so I guess this will be gifted to a friend. This is claimed to be like a shot of espresso for your hair. Hydrates, strengthens, rejuvenates healthy hair, no washing required.

-Full size Cowshed cow pat hand cream.
I don’t really use hand cream often, but it will be useful in the colder months. Has a cheeky name, nourishing hand lotion, which includes the ingredients of grapefruit, and coriander. To leave skin moisturised, toned and supple

-Scrub love coffee body scrub
Made from 100% natural ingredients, which exfoliates the skin, to remove dead skin cells and hydrates the skin. Coffee is a ingredient.

-Cynthia Rawley beauty brightening illuminator.
Claims to be a suit all highlighter is great for adding a healthy dose of radiance to all skin tones. I don’t use highlighters, so will give this a good. Hope to see good results from using it.

And I nearly forgot to say, all products came in a very nice and sassy cosmetics case, yellow and pink stripes. How handy is that, plus practical too.

Thanks

“My fave beauty and hair products | missybeelondon” on YouTube

Here is my blog post to associate with my YouTube video, my fave beauty and hair products.

Freedom pro conceal and correct palette www.tambeauty.com since I got this, it has been my go to concealer under my eyes and around dark areas of my mouth, I only use one shade even though there are 6 shades on the palette, but have not experimented with all the shades yet. Guess I need to do that.

Leo lip gloss http://www.tambeauty.com my favourite go to lip gloss to date, as I have forgotten what I used to wear before, plus I have many lip glosses and lipsticks, lol
Silicone facial cleansing pad £1.50 from Primark. Since I got this couple months ago and started to use it. I feel my face I cleaner, the texturised surface massages the skin on my face, improves circulation at the same time, and really gets into the skin to remove particles dirt build up and makeup. A Best Buy a a cost of only £1.50
Palmers cocoa butter micro fine exfoliating facial scrub, which I was given at a event in May, and had to try it as I do not have any exfoliating scrub. Was pleasantly surprised how good it is. I would say I use it every other day. And it is not to harsh that you can not use it regular.
Dudu osun black soap 99p in hair supplies stores, this has been I product I have been using since early on in the year, and noticed results mainly on my face especially, even though I use it on my body also. Made from natural ingredients as well.
Garnier rose water tonic can be purchased in many places, I was previously using the same brand but cleansing milk, but as the weather got hotter I thought to try out and use the tonic. I am very happy with this product, and it does not dry out my combination skin.
Body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution http://www.bodyshop.co.uk  I found out about this from another youtuber, and thought to try it as well. And glad I got it from my local body shop store. As we know tea tree has amazing properties on helping combat blemishes and spots. Which I noticed when I started using it over a month ago in May 2017.
Technic bronzing eye shadow purchased on ebay, I got this awhile back and has been my got to eyeshadow palette, even though I have many more, lol. The colours are really pigmented which I love, and pop out when applied to eyelids.
My ebony box http://www.myebonybox.com Which is my fave monthly beauty box subscription, I have done many unboxing videos on my youtube channel, to see what is inside the boxes. I especially love it has the contents are catered for women of colour and products and items I do use, unlike other beauty boxes.
Charlene’s hairipy hair products http://www.charleneshairipy.co.uk OMG what can I say about Charlene’s hairipy products, since using them many months ago, I noticed the difference on my natural afro hair. It is more stronger in general. Made from natural vegan ingredients.
Eco styler gel coconut purchased from a hair supply store, I decided to try this gel after seeing many videos and creations created using the gel. slightly sceptical if it would be ok in my hair, but was pleasantly happy with styles I created using the gel. and will off course use it in future hairstyles where needed.
afrocenchix soothe natural scalp oil http://www.afrocenchix.co.uk Which I would use after I wash my hair, to apply and nourish my scalp, which it does. Smells very nice too.
Shetai hair care butter http://www.shetai.co.uk I would use this while styling my hair, made with natural vegan ingredients too. Have no problems with it
fit4akiing charcoal toothpaste http://www.fit4akiing.com This is the natural toothpaste I use. Made from natural ingredients, noticed improvements on my teeth. I don’t experience any gum infections anymore.

First impressions of using Palmers Micro fine exfoliating facial scrub.

I was given this exfoliating scrub in a goodie bag from a event I went to recently at Afro hair and beauty live event, in London.

I used it for the first time after I had makeup on my face for a YouTube video I had just did.

Well what can I say………………..

It has a nice aroma, I applied it to my silicone facial cleansing pad. Applied a small amount and massaged it on my face to remove the makeup on my face.

It worked wonders so easily. When I rinsed my face, it felt so clean and refreshed.

And don’t forget to moisturise your face after drying.

The micro fine exfoliating properties from crushed walnut shells, and cocoa powder, were great ingredients to be included in this product.

Ingredients include cocoa powder, evening primrose, crushed walnut shells, and shea butter.

Also 100% free of parabens, phthalates dyes, hence the natural colour of this scrub.


And is suitable for sensitive skin 🙂

It is recommended that you can use this product 2-3 times a week or more. It just depends on skin sensitivity.

Here are some facts about it
– Its made from natural ingredients
– Helps relieve acne, oily skin, and other skin problems
– Great for any skin types
– Benefits against premature facial lines and wrinkles
– ingredients include pure honey, shea butter, cocoa pod ash, aloe vera, lemon juice, lime juice, water, and a few more ingredients

My skin is much better in general especially as I have combination skin.

I really have noticed the difference since using this soap, but I want to try out a different brand, because I have heard the ingredients are better.

Plus the store is local to me, they offer delivery service too
