Dive In: August BirchBox

So it that beautiful time of the month when I receive my BirchBox and I was pretty excited for this month due to the original idea of the scuba make-up bag for the delivery!
This box had a running theme of summer and being on the beach which was exciting! I love summer and having this extended slightly from the comfort of my own home so, without further ado, let’s dive in (excuse the pun 😉 ) and see what I got this month, shall we? ❤

Packaging:

As I have just mentioned, the packaging this month was very different to the boxes I have previously received! The products came packaged in a scuba-style make-up bag which definitely linked well to the ‘Dive In’ theme.
I have to say that the packaging, although different, didn’t really blow me away. It was an alright idea and everything but overall I prefer the actual box packaging from previous months over the scuba-style bag.
But hey-ho, just my opinion! 🙂

Products Received:

So this month, as I’ve said previously, were all along the theme of prepping and being at the beach in summer! There were hair care, make-up and skincare products included and I am very excited to try them all out!

Thoughts Overall:

This months subscription was good, like the others, however I wouldn’t say it was the best one I have received so far…
The products included were good, however, I have received the Marcelle eyeliner before in a different colour so that disappointed me a little.
The packaging of the products was interesting and original, however, I didn’t particularly like it as a way of receiving my products! I will potentially reuse the bag, however, I am not a huge fan of it!
I do really love receiving my BirchBox subscriptions and this one is a good one with a nice variety of products with only one repeat product from previous boxes which is both good and kinda annoying!
Although I did get a repeat product and I am not a huge fan of the bag in which I received the products I still love what products I got and I really love having this monthly subscription so they are still a winner from me!

There you have it, folks!  There is the unboxing of my August BirchBox and my thoughts on the subscription service overall! If you guys want to get your hands on this then you still have time to order your first BirchBox by clicking here!
