Unboxing: Skinnydip London Birchbox

Hello everyone! Today's unboxing post is about the special edition Skinnydip London and Birchbox collaboration box. It's one I've been super excited for as I love both brands and I wanted to see what they would come up with. Total #SQUADGOALS! Though, I really quite liked the STYLIST box last month so I had high hopes regardless. You can see my review from last month's Birchbox here, I think it's a good idea to check out the reviews before committing to a subscription. 

I am in love with the shell design, they did two similar box designs, one being darker and and the one that I got being this pastel dream. You can probably tell that I love the design judging by the fact that I ordered the phone case alongside it. The option to add it to the order for just £4 compared to the usual £12 price so it's a bargain, really. It's available for the iPhone 6S and the Samsung S6 which is really handy because I recently got the Samsung.

  • REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial - I have wanted to buy a sleeping mask sort of product from the moment I returned from Hong Kong, they're available everywhere and I loved them whilst I was there. I loved the REN one that came with this month's Birchbox, it smells really nice, it's kind of like a tangerine sort of scent and it actually worked. I've only used it once so far but I'm already thinking of repurchasing.
  • Delarom Crème Acquaconfort - Another product that smells fab and works, my skin is feeling super soft today and it's actually not as red or irritated today as it usually is. It sinks in really well and it doesn't feel greasy. It's a fab product for those of you who only like using products with natural ingredients. It's apparently good for anti-aging but I'm only twenty so it just works a great moisturiser.
  • Beauty Protector Beauty Cream Body Lotion - This product is one that, whilst I did like, I won't be buying the full size of. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth but it kind of dried my skin up after a little while so it's just not a great product for me.
  • N4 Super Comb Prep And Protect Spray (Lumiere D'Hiver) - This product is great for those of us striving for a soft polished hairstyle, it just softens and untangles hair. Whilst looking for blog posts about Birchbox, I found out that not many of the people who've received this have actually blogged about it. Not sure why because I like it but maybe there's a reason?
  • Lord & Berry Silhouette Neutral Lip Liner - It's a good thing that I've just received this product because it's great for contouring lips and cleaning up lipstick looks. It's also good for highlighting the cupids bow of the lips so it's a handy product to have.
  • Thumbs Up Rosa Nail Wraps - I can't wait to play about with these nail wraps, they'll make gorgeous feature nails against an autumnal dark red sort of colour. I might do this over the weekend and post a blog about my success or failure of the product. Either way, I love the rose patterns on the wraps, they're both sophisticated and fun at the same time.

Any questions about the products? I'll try my best to answer them in the comments. Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it. Until next time, bye!
