July Birchbox: Summer Daze

We are over half way through 2017 which is ridiculous and it is also the start of a new month which means I've got my latest Birchbox! I have to say that I am not a massive fan of the box design this month, but mainly because I don't think I could use it as part of a blog post background other than the tray insert. In this month's box, there is only one brand that I have not heard of but they are all things that I have not tried before! I am coming to the end of my first Birchbox subscription and I am definitely going to repurchase another one! I really recommend giving it a go, you can buy the boxes individually or get either a 6 month or 12 month subscription.

July Birchbox

Benefit Cosmetics Chachatint Lip & Cheek Stain
Grab this on days when you want an instant flush of colour, without reaching for multiple products! This 2-in-1 tint provides a punchy long-lasting pigment to cheeks and lips - with no need for touch-ups
This was the product that we got to chose between two shades - the other shade available was Gogotint. Benefit is one of my all time favourite beauty brands so I was very excited to receive this! I have tried Benetint before a long time ago, but I know that the texture of this is a little thicker, more similar texture-wise to High Beam - but obviously not as shimmery! I will probably use my Real Techniques sponge to apply this to my cheeks to avoid full red clown cheeks!

Balance Me Flash Cleanse Micellar Water
Sweep away make-up and grime without irritation thanks to this 99% natural cleansing water. Soothing chamomile and regenerating neroli and mandarin oils also help to leave skin glowing
Now I really like my Garnier cleansing waters but since I tried that Marcelle eye makeup remover that I loved, I am more open now to trying others. I will probably save this to use on holiday so I don't need to go out and repurchase the Garnier travel size. I didn't like the last Balance Me item from a previous Birchbox so I hope this one is more successful!

Percy & Reed Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery
Transform your hair while you sleep? Who knew?! This stuff is brimming with conditioning agents to hydrate, boost shine and fight frizz for dreamy strands - without transferring to your pillow!
I have actually tried this before now that I think about it. I don't remember it being amazing, but it was not terrible either.. I will give it a go again because it has been a long time since I did last use it so I can't really remember it.

anatomicals softening eucalyptus foot cream
After a long day on your feet, it's time to show them some love with this refreshing lotion. It immediately soothes and cools your skin, and boosts a deodorising scent! 
I won't lie, if I am terrible about applying hand cream and moisturisng my hands, you can imagine that I am even worse at looking after my feet. What makes it worse that on most days, if I am not going outside or need to wear shoes, I spend most days walking around barefoot. It will be interesting to try this as I have never used a cream specifically for feet but I can't promise how great I will be at maintaining using it!

ORIGINS RitualiTea Feeling Rosy Face Mask
Is there anything more relaxing than a cuppa? ORIGINS have taken the healing power of a good brew to inspire this soothing treat. Infusing with rose and Rooibos tea, it helps to hydrate drier complexions
One of my favourites things to do is have a bath and do a face mask. We are having a lot of building work going on at the moment so we do not have a proper bath at the moment so I am tempted to save this until we have a bath again but that might be a while! Origins is a skincare brand that I have always wanted to try so I am looking forward to using this, it is also hydrating which is perfect for me!

English Laundry Oxford Bleu Femme Eau de Parfum
Sometimes only a fresh fragrance will do! This spritz leads with zesty lemon and mint and then dries down to sandalwood and vanilla for a hint of sweetness. It's sunshine in a bottle
I have not worn this out yet but I have given it a little sniff and it does smell pretty nice! It reminds me of what stores like Hollister and Jack Wills always smell like, which I suppose is not a bad thing! I like that it is not too sweet as that is a big turn off for me so I think this will be a good top-up perfume to put in my handbag!

So that was what was in my July Birchbox! Like with all my Birchbox posts, if you have tried any of these products before please leave your thoughts in the comments! Also if you got a Birchbox this month too, what did you get!
