BIRCHBOX UK June 2014. (My first ever box)

I'd been wanting to try a beauty subscription box for some time now. I'm sure you've all seen unboxing videos on YouTube, I love the idea of receiving a present each month full of mystery items.
I was so excited to receive my very first box and find out what was inside. This month's box is Brazilian World Cup themed which doesn't interest me much but thankfully the products aren't football themed!

What's in my box:

OPI mini nail lacquer in 'Kiss me I'm Brazilian'

Caudalie Vinoperfect SPF15 Day Perfecting Fluid

Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Conditioning Mask

Aromatherapy Associates Relax OR Revive Bath & Shower Oil

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain

I am really excited to try some new brands that I have never heard of before, I put on the OPI nail lacquer as soon as I got it out of the box as OPI is a brand I have been loving since I first tried them last year and I wasn't disappointed. The colour is a beautiful kitsch, almost neon pink and is refreshing as I haven't worn pink nail varnish in a couple of years.

I tried the lip stain on my boyfriend as well as myself thinking it was a clear balm and his lips went bright pink, which looks cute on him in my opinion however he didn't want to leave the house wearing it. I liked the texture and taste of the lip stain, it reminds me of something I had when I was a child but I can't think what.

I also tried out the Caudalie Vinoperfect SPF15 Day Perfecting Fluid, my skin has been awfully dry and irritable the past few days so I was worried how it would react but I was delighted how soft it made my face and it's tinted so it evened out my skin tone beautifully and my boyfriend even commented how my skin looked glowing.

I'm looking forward to trying out the shower oil and hair mask, overall I am very happy with my first box and I can't wait to see what I receive next month.
