Birchbox Global Strikers Edition, June 2014

Birchbox are back again with yet another incredible box this month. In celebration of the World Cup they're sending out some of their favourite products from across the globe, as well as the cutest keyring I've ever seen in the Brazil colours. I've seen quite a few variations of the box, but I absolutely love the look of everything inside mine.

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion:
I've never heard of Naobay before, but I like the sound of this little body lotion. It has olive oil, avocado oil and shea butter inside, so perfect for giving a good moisturise. I'm going on a little holiday soon and this looks like the perfect size to take, so I'm looking forward to giving this a go.

OPI Nail Lacquer from the Brazil Collection:
I really like little nail polishes, because who actually manages to get through a full bottle before it goes gunky? I certainly don't! I'm a little unsure of this colour so I might pass it on to someone else after I give it a try if I don't like it, but there are some really lovely other colours from the range.

Original Beauty Blender Sponge:
This is the item I was the most excited about! There's been a few dupes around for the Beauty Blender but I've heard nothing but incredible things about the original. I've never used sponge make-up applicators but I'm really looking forward to trying this, and this alone retails for around £16 so it's amazing to find in a £10 box!

theBalm Cheek & Lip Cream Palette:
I think one of these were in a box a few months ago, and it was actually one of the things that made me subscribe in the first place. theBalm is a brand I've wanted to try for so long but never actually have, so I love the look of this dinky little two in one cheek and lip cream. The colour is so pretty, and again it'll be perfect for taking on holiday!

Caudalie Vinoperfect Broad Spectrum SPF15 Day Perfecting Fluid:
Throughout the warmer months I try to wear a little less make-up, but having blemishes and scarring means I usually can't. This is an oil free moisturiser which claims to boost the radiance of the skin whilst smoothing over lines and reducing dark spots, so I'm really excited to see whether it lives up to that! I've tried a few things from Caudalie skincare and it's all really impressed me, so I'm expecting good things from this!

As you can see, this is such a fantastic box and Birchbox have absolutely won me over again to the beauty box business. There's a good mix of brands I know and new ones I've been introduced to, and a good few products I really can't wait to give a try!

Are you a Birchbox subscriber? What do you think of this box?

    here in Italy all the subscription boxes have closed in 2 years. I'm so envy of your birchbox :P

  14. I received the same contents as you and I was really pleased about everything except the shade of nail varnish that was in mine. I got a yellow shade and I've nothing against yellow but it just really doesn't suit me when on my nails, I look slightly ill! I'm very jealous of the purple(?) one you received x
