Lulu Guinness Birchbox

When I saw that Birchbox were doing a special edition with Lulu Guinness I signed up immediately! I couldn’t wait to open the box…

English Laundry Perfume

Inside was a lovely sample of English Laundry Perfume from Christopher Wicks which I have fallen in love with just by smelling the bottle – I have yet to test in on naked skin!! I am rubbish at describing scents so I have taken the description from the card included with the box “A divine delicate fragrance with elegant notes of quince, jasmine petals and musk” It is definitely divine and elegant! A full bottle of this may have to go onto the birthday wish list.


Korres Citrus Body Milk

Next out of the bag (or box) of goodies was the Korres Citrus Body Milk. Now I just tried this on the back of my hand and it doesn’t smell very citrusy at all! I think it smells quite manly, if that makes any sense at all! It has made my hand quite soft but I am not so sure I am keen on the scent!


Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose hand cream

What follows a manly smell is the delicious scent of the Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream – oh my, oh my, oh my it smells so much like those rhubarb and custard sweets you used to eat or a hot-pot of stewed rhubarb, it makes me want to lick it! I may have to get me a bigger tube of this, I can’t stopped sniffing my hand!

Dr Brandt Pores no more is as the name suggests a pore refiner. This has quit a medicated smell (it’s all about the smells today) I haven’t had chance to try it out yet but The Sunday Girl has got me intrigued with her review here.

The last beauty product in the bag/box is the Benefit Stay Don’t Stray which is an eye primer. I have never used an eye primer before as I have never felt the need as my eyeshadows tend to stay put for the majority of the time I need them there. I must either have really good eyeshadow or non-slippery eyelids!! I will give it a go and let you know my thoughts.

The final item in the box was a stick of stripey rock! May have to pass on eating this as I have never been a fan of the stuff, however it is quite pretty so may keep it for show!

The Lulu Guinnes Special Edition may still be available, but hurry March is nearly over!
