This month I thought I'd order the Birchbox to see what all the fuss is about, especially as it's for such a good cause - breast cancer awareness.
The first thing I actually noticed about the Birchbox was how small it was! (Annoyingly after I'd opened it and had a rummage I couldn't fit everything back in. How did they get it all in?!)
The total cost of this box with shipping was £12.95 - which is an absolute bargain.
The contents of the box includes:
Make Up Brush from Spectrum
Advertised as FREE with box / Retail Price / £8.99
This is actually the first Spectrum brush I've had and it's so lovely. The colours are a very elegant white and copper and the brush itself is very soft.
