Birchbox and Habitat – cool make-up and beauty storage.


Habitat-Birchbox-UK-Little-Big-Bell A few weeks back, I was invited to a wonderful dinner party co-hosted by Birchbox and Habitat. The dinner was catered from Social Pantry.

Usually when I go out to dinners full of new people, I can’t concentrate on eating, as I’m usually busy chatting.

However, the food was so amazing that I actually took note, and ate most of my dinner!

The company that evening was lovely too. I spent quite some time chatting to Jessica Diner, editorial director of Birchbox.

Birchbox is a beauty and lifestyle box that is posted out monthly, allowing one to try out new tester sized products. There is also access to exclusive editorial advice, helping subscribers get the most out of each item they receive.

After trying the tester sizes, full-sized versions can be bought online.

Birchbox-and-Habitat-Little-Big-Bell Each monthly Birchbox has a different design. The March box I received was a special collaboration with Habitat.

Inside was Benefit’s Roller lash, Catherine Malandrino’s style de Paris fragrance, Philip kingsley’s smooth cream, Tan Organic’s self tanning oil and Janjira’s Pomegranate & Acai facial scrub cleanser.

There were also 2 lifestyle elements in the box, a short novel by Penny Vincenzi and a notebook.

This collaboration was done to coincide with Habitat’s Spring Summer launch of their dressing  tables and beauty storage boxes.

This is my daughter Jojo’s own beauty collection. She was beyond excited when I brought home the storage box and all those Birchbox products.

Style-with-Jojo-make-up-in-Habitat-box The Birchbox concept is wonderful for her, as not only does she get expert make-up tips, but allows her to try the tester sizes before spending more pocket money.

This April’s Birchbox is a Laura Mercier special.

I’m off to subscribe!

Wishing you all a wonderful  Easter weekend.

  1. Hi Geraldine, another great blog post and I love the idea behind Birchbox. This is more a technical question than a comment. I have just tried to sign up for my first Birchbox and apply the discount code you are offering and it doesn’t accept the password. Do you know if any other people have had the same problem? Thought it was worth asking you before I go ahead and pay full price. Thanks for any help you can provide.
