Earlier on this week I was invited to a rather mysterious event held by the Birchbox UK team and although I'm usually rubbish at surprises and like to know exactly what I'm doing, it was a very lovely evening and we were all treated absolutely beautifully.
We were met at Liverpool Street station by the team that were armed with our Birchbox name cards and whisked away in the Pink Birchbox taxis that have been making their way around London over the past week. A little unsure of quite where we was going, when we pulled up on a back street in Shoreditch, I must say I was somewhat confused. We were led up to a studio homed behind a graffitied Silver door, which was the coolest little work home space I think I have ever been to.
With tables full of Champagne and Nail Products, we were treated to Mavala Manicures and pampered to perfection whilst discussing beauty products with the American Birchbox team.
After a couple of hours and a maybe a few too many top ups of Champagne, we were whisked away once again in the pretty taxis back into Central London, where we were treated to a beautiful dinner at the Newman Street Tavern. Over three courses with great company, we were gifted Februarys Birchbox and untied the bow to see what we would discover this month.
Inside my box was:
Gerda Spillmann Bio Fond Cream Foundation
Korres Guava Shower Gel
Nick Chavez Beverley Hills Plump 'n' Thick Leave-In Thickening Mist
Vichy Limited Edition Thermal Spa Water
Eboost Natural Energy Booster
Birchbox Eyelash Curler
I think it's pretty safe to say all of the products in Februarys Birchbox are pretty cool and I can't wait to give them all a go, especially the Nick Chavez Thickening Mist, which I heard really great things about from the US team!
Birchbox subscriptions costs £10 per month.
