I love a beauty box as I am sure you have seen from my most recent post HERE and I also LOVE flowers so when I heard that Bloom & Wild (the flower delivery company) had partnered with Birchbox to create the ‘Birch Tree’ I had to find out more. A mini Birch tree that could be delivered through your letter box and then decorated with beauty products as ornaments? Well, it sounds like the perfect Christmas tree to me!
If you read my posts you know I have a weakness for beauty and when it means that little beauty ornaments will be all over a Christmas tree, well I just can’t resist. A letterbox tree that comes complete with hanging beauty products – brilliant.
So when a little Birch tree arrived through my letter box this week from Bloom & Wild I was so excited. The tree is flat packed in a flat box that can fit through your letter box, hence why it’s so easy to order from Bloom & Wild.
Flower deliveries from Bloom & Wild also arrive flat-packed in a flat box so it makes it easy to receive and also send flowers to a recipient. And I don’t have much living space in London so a mini Christmas tree – i.e. Birch tree is perfect for me to get in the Christmas spirit! The Birch tree comes with a range of little beauty bits – think of this your regular monthly Birchbox treats paired with a mini Christmas tree. Each of the beauty bits have a piece of ribbon attached to it so you can tie it to the tree, like a Christmas ornament. Since this Birch tree arrived I have actually gotten in the Christmas spirit even more – I like its presence in my room!
So what beauty bits can you expect to receive to use as ornaments on the tree? Well there are a few favourites and they really do tie onto the tree quite nicely. There are five minis in the box to try. The first one is the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. I love Caudalie and have been a big fan for awhile. With all the madness around Christmas I am quite excited to use this mask which promises to revitalise tired, lacklustre complexions. You just need to leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse off!
Next up is Rituals – The Ritual of Sakura Magic Touch Body Cream. Now this is a tiny sample so I’ve decided to put it in my hand bag to use as a hand cream. It has a lovely scent – of sweet cherry blossom and it’s quite hydrating too!
You simply cannot go wrong with Benefit the POREfessional. This is a great little primer that I have been using for awhile now and I like it because it’s oil-free and smooths out the skin before applying foundation.
My FAVOURITE item in the box has to be the Lord & Berry Red Lipstick. I love Lord & Berry and love lipstick so it’s pretty much a perfect match. And this is seriously the tiniest but probably cutest lipstick I’ve ever seen. It even fits inside my wallet!
And if you are wanting the scent of the festive season there is the Givenchy Live Irresistable EDP. I like to carry these little perfect fragrances in my bag for an on-the-go scent boost. This EDP has pineapple and spicy rose tones in it – a lovely sweet scent for the holidays!
