I got the vibrant sunshine yellow Birchbag, but you could of received 1 of 4 different colours. I think there was a hot pink, orange & blue Birchbag that you could have received this month. I got 2 full size products & 4 sample size products in July’s Birchbag. I did see photos on Instagram of girls that received different products in their Birchbag’s. Did you get different products in this months Birchbag??? Let me know & leave me a comment.
Pop Beauty – Eyeshadow trio (sample size)
My favourite product in this months BirchBag was a Pop Beauty eyeshadow trio palette. I actually thought the Pop Beauty eyeshadow palette was full size, but It turns out the three colours feature on a bigger palette.
The eyeshadow palette’s name is ‘Peach Parfait’. The three colours are great to use to create a complete eyeshadow look. The colour on the left is a highlight shade, the middle colour is brilliant to apply all of the eyelids & the colour on the right is a fab colour to use as a crease colour & to blend out to create a eye look thats perfect for Summer. I think I’m going to be using the Pop Beauty eyeshadow palette a lot this Summer! A full size Pop Beauty eyeshadow palette has 10 eyeshadow colours & costs £15.50. You can buy the Pop Beauty eyeshadow palette from the Birchbox e-shop https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/pop-beauty-bright-up-your-life. Check out Pop Beauty’s website for more make-up http://www.popbeauty.co.uk.
Jelly Pong Pong – Highlighter (full size – £8.95)
I LOVE the packaging of the Jelly Pong Pong Luminizer gel. I have already given this product to one of my friends who has been looking for a highlighter. I don’t think I’m brave enough to try the highlighter, because I’m really pale & don’t want to end up looking shinny/glittery. If you have used the Jelly Pong Pong Luminizer gel leave me a comment & tell me what its like & how it looks on your face. The Jelly Pong Pong Luminizer gel costs £8.95 & you can buy it from the Birchbox e-shop https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/jelly-pong-pong-glow-getter. Check out Jelly Pong Pong’s website http://jellypongpong.com.
Benefit – Sunscreen (sample size)
I am a huge fan of Benefit products!!! I love the brand & always love the packaging. Dream Screen is one of the only products from Benefit that I haven’t yet tried. Dream Screen is a sunblock that has SPF45 which is brilliant!!! Dream Screen is an invisible sunblock & is matte, so it will be a perfect base before you apply your make-up. I think I will defiantly purchase the full size Dream Screen once I have finished my sample. Check out Benefits website for amazing make-up/skincare products https://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk. Dream Screen costs £25 & you can buy it from the Birchbox e-shop https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/benefit-dream-screen.
Balance Me – Skin Serum (sample size)
I have had a sample of Balance me Congested skin serum before. I really enjoyed using the Congested skin serum, so I’m really pleased that I have another sample to use. The Congested skin serum is formulated with lavender, aloe-vera & chamomile. The Congested skin serum is suitable for all skin types. A full size bottle costs £16 & you can buy it from the Birchbox e-shop https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/balance-me-congested-skin-serum. Check out the Balance Me website https://www.balanceme.co.uk.

UNANI – Aloe Vera gel (sample size)
I have never heard of the brand UNANI & can’t wait to use the sample this Summer. UNANI is an aftersun treatment that soothes the skin. The product is formulated with aloe vera, which is great for calming & soothing skin. UNANI is great to use on blemishes, eczema & bites as well as sunburnt skin. A full size bottle costs £15 & you can buy it from the Birchbox e-shop https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/unani-aloe-vera-gel.
Spa – Nail File (full size – £2.99)
I have been really into Gel Nails recently & to get the perfect Gel Mani you have to file your nails into shape first & when your removing gel nail polish you have to file it off a bit before you let your nails soak in nail polish remover. I have been getting through quite a lot of nail files, so the Spa nail file I got in my BirchBag will be perfect for me to use when I’m doing Gel nails. I haven’t yet used the Spa nail file, but I’m sure it will be great!!! You can buy the Spa nail file from the Birchbox e-shop for only £2.99 https://www.birchbox.co.uk/shop/spa-to-you-nail-file.
