Just before Valentine's Day I stumbled across this fabulous offer from Birchbox who collaborated with Bloom & Wild to offer a monthly beauty box and flower bouquet subscription service. What more could a girl want, really? I have decided to cancel my Glossybox subscription for now, and transferred to Birchbox as I've seen so many great reviews on their boxes so far! I received my first delivery of both products on 13th Feb, just in time for a little Valentine's Day treat to myself, and here's what I thought about it...
Bloom & Wild are the first of their kind, a flower delivery service which bring you a beautiful, full bouquet of flowers which fit through your letterbox! They are very affordable, and they arrived in perfect condition and beautifully presented. They were wrapped in cellophane with a deep purple box, and the delicate roses were wrapped individually in netting for protection and with their own vial of water to keep them fresh. They came with some flower food to add to the vase of water and an instruction/care guide, which tells you what the flowers are and even how to arrange them! The flowers are freshly cut to order the day previous to delivery, so when they arrive with you they won't have bloomed yet, as you can see from the first couple of photo's above. I left them for a few days before photographing again, and as you can see the lilies look absolutely stunning once they have bloomed fully! The roses were very fitting for the Valentines theme :) I honestly cannot wait for next months flowers to be delivered, this months bouquet was gorgeous!
Considering this was my first ever Birchbox, and I've read so many great reviews before, I was expecting big things... I wasn't disappointed! First of all I noticed that the box is quite a bit smaller in size compared to Glossyboxes, and Birchbox include a small canvas tie bag, great for travelling to use as a wash bag! I can definitely see myself using all the products in this box, and have already used all of the Gilchrist & Soames Shower Gel and half of the Urban Veda Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish. I used the Nail Rock Nail Glitter to create my Valentines NOTD look with some glittery red french tips. I have not yet tried the Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner, but I will give it a go eventually, I hope that one day I will master the art of eyeliner because I'm terrible at it! The last product which I will be making use of once my current hair oil runs out is the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil, which I'm really looking forward to trying out. Birchbox also included a little extra Green & Blacks Organic Chocolate sample in this box too, what a lovely touch.
You can still get your hands on the Birchbox & Bloom & Wild Monthly Subscription for just £20 a month (Including P&P), total bargain if you ask me!
