This month's Birchbox is all about Sun, Sea and Sand, the perfect theme for beach goers with amazing travel sized products to fit perfectly in your beach bag. If like me, you don't yet have a holiday planned, sigh, these are great products to get you in a summer mindset, at least we can pretend! I liked that this month's box was less varied, the only thing I hate about a subscription like Birchbox is the jealousy I get when someone get's something I didn't, don't pretend you don't do the same!

Weleda Millet Nourishing Shampoo | £8.95

This is actually the only product I have not yet tried out of this box, though I have tried products form the brand before and I trust that it will be just as amazing as the rest of their collection. Suitable for normal hair this 'will gently cleanse hair, while maintaining your natural shine. The millet works to protect hair from becoming dry while macadamia nut oil will keep it naturally supple. Including extracts of grapefruit and peppermint, it smells lovely too.'

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream | £20

Balance me are fab brand! Their products never dissapoint and they always look great too. This 'three in one multitasking' eye cream smells amazing! It's light, soft and cooling on the the delicate eye area, leaving skin soft, smooth and brighter. I've been using this for a little while now and I have to say I'm impressed, especially with the sample size being a generous 7ml.

Laqa & Go. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Menatour | £14.43

Although a little dissapointed with the colour, I'm just not a purple kinda gal, this lip lube is actually a great product, 'this easy-to-use lip pencil provides high gloss and sheer colour' without any effort! The minty scent immediately drew me in and the buttery formula kept me reapplying! So far, so good!

Gilchrist & Soames English Spa Sea Kelp Extract Mineral Bath | £11.25

'This delightfully foamy Sea Kelp Mineral formulation is perfect for a light summer evening bath – it contains therapeutic marine nutrients, vitamins, and extracts that invigorate the body as the warmth of the water releases its fresh citrus and herb fragrance.' This mineral bath smells so fresh, like the products you would find in a spa! This left me feeling relaxed and left my skin super soft. 

Whish Three Whishes Lavender Body Butter | £14.50

I've never tried any products from Whish before, but I love the name and the product smells so amazing, I'm already hooked. This lavender scented body butter is perfect for lathering on after a hot bath to relax you for the evening. It has such a luxurious feel to it, it keeps skin soft and hydrated and I can see myself repurchasing this pretty soon.

Lifestyle Extra

Ultradex Oral Spray | £3.65

I often find the lifestyle extras in Birchbox a little bizarre but I can't complain about an extra product in my box! This Oral spray makes keeping you breath fresh throughout the day so easy. This made it's way straight into my work bag and is great for those moments when you've had something for lunch that makes you feel wary of your breath around others, simply spray a few sprays in your mouth after eating to keep your breath fresh for the rest of the day.
