One of the perks of coming back from holiday – post! This month’s Birchbox very much centres around Summer and holidays with the theme ‘Make A Splash’. Summer is my favourite time of year, so I was all the more excited to see what Birchbox would come up with for July. Instead of the usual box packaging, the July contents comes within a brightly coloured splash proof bag. The idea is that this can be used to house holiday poolside/ beach essentials but I think this little bag would be equally as useful as a pencil case, make up bag or anything else that takes your fancy!

My skin is fairly clear at the moment but I’ll always welcome any product that claims to treat congested skin, especially when I can use it as a preventative. I’m really looking forward to adding the Balance Me Congested Skin Serum to my routine.

I was excited to see the POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eyeshadow Trio in Peach Parfait in my bag this month, all 3 peach toned shades look very wearable and as I’m a fan of neutral eyeshadows, I’m sure I’ll enjoy using these.

I also received Unani’s Aloe Vera Gel. This gel has healing properties, and a non-irritating formula to help recover from sunburn. I don’t burn easily but I’ll certainly take this with me on my next holiday in the sun.

My Birchbag also contained Benefit’s Dream Screen. An oil-free lotion with SPF 45 to protect our skin from the sun. Factor 45 is higher than anything I would ever choose for my skin, so I’ll pass this on to my Mum who I’m sure will use it.

I’ll never say no to a new nail file and this Spa To You Nail File has a rather cute pattern! I’m popping this straight in my handbag for emergencies.

Last but not least I received Jelly Pong Pong’s Glow Getter – an oil-free gel highlighter with pearlescent pigments to give a subtle luminous shimmer. I’ve been embracing highlighter’s this Summer but have yet to try a gel formula so I’m really excited to trial this. I bet this sample will last ages too.

I love how every product this month fits with the Summer theme perfectly, it’s a tad unfortunate that I’ve already been on my holiday otherwise I’m sure I’d have taken these samples away with me! Having said that I can still use the majority of products at home and I’m particularly excited to try the serum, eyeshadows and highlighter. The Make A Splash Birchbag gets a big thumbs up from me!
