Just like a real birth, this month's Birchbox* had an element of surprise: was it going to be a box suitable for a little royal baby boy... or girl? Following a strong labour of anticipation, the Royal Mail stork delivered my parcel, and I soon found out what I had received...PINK!
Despite the colour of my box, the contents were very blue and included five luxe beauty samples, plus an extra bonus product, including: Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Purple, I was initially a little gutted I didn't receive the Primer, however after seeing the colour of the pencil was purple, I felt happier; Lola Barcelona Nail Polish in Garcia, a hot fuchsia Birchbox exclusive shade; Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil Oil, which is said to tame hair without weighing it down; bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, a double-duty cleanser and exfoliator; Korres Bergamot Pear Showergel; and Inner Me Energise Me, a box of vitamins and minerals that are said to boost energy.
To really get into the spirit of Royal Baby #2, Birchbox are giving us a chance to win a bumber beauty bundle worth up to £500, depending on whether the Royal Baby is a girl or a boy. Those with a pink box will have the chance to win a stash of pink beauty goodies and if it's a boy, the people with blue boxes could win a bundle of blue goodies.
What will it be? I think it may be a girl... well here's hoping!
