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…
Inside waiting for me was this lovely lot
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.
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!
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!
