I used to be a Birchbox subscriber many moons ago but when I heard that they were going to have a pop up store in Carnaby Street, I had to give it a visit. On a side note, if you haven’t seen the Carnaby Street Christmas Carnival decorations, you must give them a look. They are literal works of art. Anyway back to the pop up store, you walk in and are greeted by their wonderful sales assistants who helpfully explain that you are given the chance to create your own Birchbox from the selection they have on the wall.
I loved this concept because one of the reason I left the subscription service was because I started to receive products each month that i didn’t really use or enjoy using. On the back wall of the Birchbox store, they had rows of products in flumes and I was told to choose a one of each section – make up, skincare body, skincare face and hair. Altogether you could choose five products and place them into a pretty instagram worthy marble box. I will be doing a review of the box later once I have used the products but I chose the following:
- LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in ‘Colour Me Confident’
- Benefit Ka Brow
- Bumble and Bumble Invisible Hair Oil
- The Ritual of Ayurveda Foaming Shower Gel
- NUXE Hair and Body Oil
They also had full size version of the products that they have in their boxes that you could purchase as well. I had a great time playing with the products and choosing my own Birchbox and I am looking forward to reviewing the box for you all later on in the month.
