March 2014 Birchbox - Lulu Guinness Collab

Since last months box redeemed Birchbox's reputation for me, this months box was highly anticipated - especially with the collaboration with Lulu Guinness

As always, I was constantly heading to the Birchbox website trying to get a sneak peek at the spoilers as soon as I could, and when I eventually saw the contents of this months box, I was delighted! In the spoilers, it shows you a list of ALL of the products that month - it doesn't necessarily mean you will get everything you see. I was hoping to get the Benefit Stay don't stray and Cellu-Cup. When I've set my heart on box items in the past, I've never gotten what I wanted, so I had prepared myself to be disappointed, but luckily enough, both items landed on my lap in this months box! 

The products I got were

Benefit Stay Don't Stray - £20.50 Full Size - Sample Value - £5.12
Dr Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner - Full Size  - Sample Value - £9.75
Aroma Works Nurture Oil - Full Size(10ML) £11  - (Guesstimate) Sample Value- £5.50
Cellu Cup - (Full Size) - Value £15
English Laundry No7 for Her - Full Size £47 - Sample Value £1.88
Lifestyle Extra - Candy Rock

Overall Box Value - A whopping £37.25

I'm happy with pretty much every item from this box. The Benefit Stay don't Stray is a definite welcome edition for my collection - I don't have a go to eyeshadow primer at the moment & you can use this to stop under eye concealer from moving too! Bonus!

The Dr Brandt Pore Refiner aims to reduce pores and absorb excess oil  - something I'm struggling with at the moment, so this is definitely going to get used! 

Perfume samples normally really annoy me, but this one smells soo amazing that I will forgive them.  It's a perfect scent for this time of year! 

The aroma works body oil is probably the item I'm the least excited about. I'll probably use it, but I think it is too small for me to form a real opinion on it. Smells good though.

The Cellu-Cup is the show stopper for me. This have a value for £16 - that alone is a winner! I love messing and trying new things, and this is another gadget for me to play with. I'm not sure about the science behind it, but the 'pinch and roll' massage technique is known for fighting cellulite. I'll read the instructions, give it a whirl and report back! 

I also got a 'Lifestyle Extra' - a candy rock. 

You are also offered £10 off a £100 spend on Lulu Guinness stuff, as well as a makeover at a Benefit counter. 

All in all, my favorite EVER box. That's including my old Glossybox subscription! 

See you next month, Birchbox. I can't wait!
