Maternity Leave Essential – Birchbox


Tuesday 9th August 2016

Before I begin I’d like to state that I’m a full on subscriber to Birchbox and I’m not receiving anything for this blogpost. For all you ladies out there, especially those of you on Mat Leave – this one’s for you.

Birchbox Maternity Leave Essential Missuswolf


I’m hitting the brassic time of Mat Leave where every penny counts. Yawn. I shouldn’t complain as I’m lucky to be allowed nine months off. I saw an Instagram post yesterday of a friend in America who was going back to work after twelve weeks.

So, other than sporadically now spending my Boots points on makeup (which I accumulated buying all the baby crap) I’ve subscribed to Birchbox.

Once a month, I receive a little box through the post (exciting! I love receiving post).

Inside are five beauty product samples – ranging from make-up, perfume, skincare to hair care.

This month they came in a fabulous dove grey neoprene Scuba Birchbag with a range of four cool neon accents. The bag is super handy as either an everyday essential make-up bag or a travel bag for your jolly hols beauty products.

For those in the mammy tribe who carry a changing bag – this Scuba Birchbag is an ideal size to fit inside and slip your own essentials in.

August’s products are definitely one for the mammy tribe too – check this lot out:

Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo – need I say more

Merci Handy antibacterial hand cleansing gel – a given

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum – skin sos is a necessity

Anatomicals Body Scrub – ‘brimming with energising grapefruit’ ‘sloughs away dead cells’ – we need all the help we can get

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner – just because.

Oh and I nearly forgot – a delightful little sample of a perfume called English Laundry. To mask the smell of baby sick and the likes.

If you subscribe monthly it’s £10 plus £2.95 P&P. Keep an eye out for money off codes on the internet as well as I managed to get my July box for about £6.

You can accumulate points and receive offers for inviting friends to join.

A canny little treat to look forward to in the post every month.

Love Missuswolf xxx
