Beauty Box Review: April Birchbox x Cath Kidston

flatlay of products within this beauty box

It’s been a while since I ordered a beauty box but when I’m feeling like I need a little treat, these are the perfect solution. Although lately, I’ve been checking what will be in the box before ordering because half of the products I already have from other subscription boxes – this is why I’ve not ordered one in a while. When I saw this box on offer from Birchbox for April, I couldn’t resist. Firstly with a code of ‘DUO‘ you can get two extra products and secondly because the box is so pretty! In collaboration with Cath Kidston for their 25 year birthday, this box has been beautiful designed with a floral CK print! – how can one resist!? I’ve also already got the Cargo Cosmetics blush/bronzer from the August Birchbox but I use it so much I wanted another one!


Spectrum A04 Tapered Finishing Brush

I am obsessed with Spectrum brushes – they are so soft, look beautiful and make applying makeup so much easier!

Modelco Baked Highlighter

I was most excited for this product as in the images it looks so pretty with the marble effect. I chose the Moonshine option as it’s a gorgeous colour for highlighter. Birchbox warn that this product is a little fragile and mine didn’t come in perfect condition to be honest but it was in one piece! I was a bit disappointed with the size of this product – it’s tiny – but it leaves the prettiest glow – perfect for summer!

Beautaniq Beauty Fill + Tame Brow Gel

This is a full size product that controls unruly brows – I am currently loving my Glossier Boy Brow so was excited to receive a brow gel, although I’ve not heard of this brand before. There is aloe leaf extract in the vegan formula to keep your brows nourished so my brows feel soft all day after wearing. It doesn’t give as much precision as the Glossier Boy Brow as the brush is a little thicker but it lasts all day!

Cath Kidston Hand Cream

You can never have too many hand creams – one for your bag, one at home, one at your work desk… This one smells seriously good! – It’s fragranced with notes of jasmine and orange flower – Yum!

Beauty Protector Protect and Volume

I haven’t heard of this brand either before but I am always up for trying new products to protect my hair from heated products. I love the way this sprays in a mist form making it easy to use and it smells delicious however on my hair it feels sticky when I spray on which is a shame. My hair didn’t feel much softer the day after application either!

Birchbox Brush Cleaner

This is the first brush cleaning tool I have. To be honest at first I was confused about how to use this but it’s much better than just using hands! It’s a really cute colour too!
