OFFICIAL SAVANA RAE: THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX

THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX

No comments:

After last month's Birchbox brand extravaganza I have to admit that the bar was set very high in terms of expectations.


I have prepared myself to be blow away this month especially when a big brand like Cath Kidston is involved in this collaboration.

Cath Kidston is celebrating their 25th birthday. This theme is the month of sunshines and smiles.

BIRCHBOX BOX DESIGN


THE CATH KIDSTON APRIL 2018 EDITION BIRCHBOX

This by far the most beautiful box design I have come across so far. This beautiful english rose theme is so well suited to the beginning of spring. The roses are subtle and elegant.

The Birchbox logo and Cath Kidston logo are present in gold which makes the box even more beautiful.

CONTENTS


MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE


This was the sample size, the full size retails at £24.

MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE BIRCHBOX APRIL 2018

The casing consists of a circular mirrorless mini contact in a very dark navy and the ModelCo logo in silver.

It is odourless and I provides a lovely glow when swept on the cheekbones. The highlighter shows up as a bronze slash silver hue shine.

MODELCO - BAKED HIGHLIGHTER in MOONSHINE BIRCHBOX APRIL 2018


There's nothing I love more than a visible highlight as it makes your final look pop.

To be honest, I am not sure I would purchase it for as high as £24 as you can get equally good branded highlighters for this price point.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE


This was a sample size and full size retails £8.90.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE APRIL BIRCHBOX 2018

The casing it comes in is of mint green, The logo and writing comes in black with pink type pond leaves on the brush base.

For my vegan friends, this product is VEGAN!!!! It contains aloe leaf extract and glycerin which is great as you will not get flakes and sticky brows.

It smells creamy and exhibits a little brush perfect for eyebrow use. It brushes through the eyebrows great and allows only little pigment to be transferred which is really good as you don't want to end up with very obvious colour on your brows.

BEAUTANIQ BEAUTY - FILL + TAME BROW GEL in BRUNETTE APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

Be wary that it takes quite a bit of time to set , be careful it may transfer before it fries but at least it's not a dry formula. It did quite well considering fill and brow gels are not so easy to get right. When this pigment sets it will need a hardcore makeup remover to make it disappear.

It does overall tame and fill brows. It will work on sparse brows but if too much hair is missing you may well have to go in and fill them in with a brush.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM


This was a sample size and the full size only retails at £2.50.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

As per the box theme, it has the same english rose design and exhibits the typical upside down cream container design. You rotate the cap and squeeze out the product.

They call it the Birthday rose design! I see it more of an english rose one.

The size of the same is great for on the go hand cream.

The scent of the cream is of a floral nature, it is not overwhelming at all but rather addictive. I love the smell it leaves behind. It doesn't fade easily.

CATH KIDSTON - HAND CREAM APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

In terms of the cream consistency, it is a thick white cream. It is moisturising and the great thing is that it doesn't leaves hands sticky and dries quickly to a satin finish.

This is definitely a product I would look to purchase, I did feel it was worth buying.

WHISH - SHAVE CAVE in ACAI GRAPEFRUIT


This was a sample size and the full size retails at £14.80.

WHICH - SHAVE CAVE in ACAI GRAPEFRUIT APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

The casing design is like that of an upside down squeezable cream. It comes in hot pink which a sleek black cap. The logo is in White.

It smells exactly as advertised, I find grapefruit over-baring so this scent would not be one I would chose.

It did allow a smooth shave and skin felt moisturised which is good as shaving is very harsh on our skin. This is probably due to the cream containing shea butter, jojoba oil and coconut oil.

However, I am not sure I would spend almost £15 on a shaving cream.

MARCELLE - BB CREAM GOLDEN GLOW ILLUMINATOR


This was a sample size and the full size retails at £25.50.

MARCELLE - BB CREAM GOLDEN GLOW ILLUMINATOR APRIL 2018 BIRCHBOX

It comes in the Marcelle brand colours which are white with a gold logo.

It comes in a thin cream type upside down casing with a rotating cap.

The BB cream has a bare scent which I can barely identify. At first look it has a typical foundation colour to it.

I generally hate BB cream, they are usually patchy and tranfer on clothes.

Hello Marcelle!!!!!!!! Wow this is the best BB cream I possibly tried. I suffer from slight redness and it covered it. It felt really light and can't believe what a subtle difference it gives the skin. This BB cream is quite hydrating, you will notice it when you wash your hands you will have that cream after feeling.


The BB cream SET!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!!!!!!!


It gives you also a subtle natural glow and look. It feels light and looks like you have no makeup on but rather beautiful skin.


£25 for a BB cream is quite steep but you do get 45ml with the full size and also it is amazing!!!!!!!! If you are looking for a BB cream that performs efficiently this is the one to go for.

Best BB cream I have ever tried or come across. The king of BB creams. However, I did notice that later during the day it stuck to dry skin so it is not really suited to dry skin.

FINAL THOUGHTS


At first I felt really underwhelmed especially since last months box really was unbelievable. I did somehow feel this months birchbox was a waste of money but once I smelt that Cath Kidston hand cream and tried that Marcelle BB cream my opinion was slightly overturned.

Overall, I got the chance to find new favourites. It is no surprise with how well they did that I would purchase the Cath Kidston hand cream and really recommend it.

I really wanted Marcelle BB cream to be right for me but unfortunately it does not agree with dry skin.

I am not sure that I would have got this beauty box if I had already read a review and seen the contents. I prefer when they contain more makeup products.
