Birchbox December - Winter Wonderland




If you read my blog regularly you'll know that I started to get a little bored of my Glossybox over the last few months, so I finally decided to cancel my subscription and sign back up to Birchbox. I had Birchbox back in March and although I liked it, at the time I preferred Glossybox as I'd heard of all the brands, but I've come to the realisation that I can buy brands I know about whenever I like and that I want to discover more new products, so Birchbox is right for me, right now.

You can subscribe to Birchbox for £10 plus £2.95 P&P per month at their website here.

With the next one due in the next fortnight, I thought it was time I got this post up and showed you what I got...

Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray 43ml


Bee Kind Body Lotion 30ml


Delarom Acquaconfort Mask 15ml


Nail Rock in Sequin Green


Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Paris


Twistband Hair Tie


I have to admit I got way too many products for Christmas and therefore I haven't got round to trying out either the Number 4 hairspray or the Delarom Face mask just yet, but I'm excited to try them out as they both look like amazing products!

I wasn't too thrilled with the nail rock sequins, there is no fault with the product, I'm just not a sequin fan when it comes to nails. I did try it out, to give it the benefit of the doubt, but the sequins are far too chunky in my opinion to cover a whole nail in them. I had a play around and decided that I prefer to use them to create designs with, so they won't go to waste after all.

I absolutely love the Beekind body lotion, it has the most gorgeous citrus scent that lingers all day and the product sinks in really quickly as well as leaving your body feeling super smooth throughout the day. I also think it's cute that a portion of the proceeds support honey bee and sustainable pollination research, yay for bees.

The Twistband hair ties are an amazing concept and I really enjoyed using mine for the first few times, however unfortunately my hair is super thick and ended up stretching the hair band completely, I'm interested to see what other ties they may bring out though and I think the message they come with is a sweet little touch.

The Alima Pure mineral eyeshadow in Paris is such a gorgeous product. I love everything from the cute little bird printed packaging to the iridescence of the glitter. I love that it's a mineral eyeshadow and it's super easy to use, with great pigmentation and great staying power. I've been using this on a daily basis, gently patting this all over my lid and then gently blending a slightly darker shadow into my crease, for a subtle everyday smokey eye.

I'm so glad I subscribed to Birchbox again, the packaging is so adorable and I love discovering new products every month that are of great quality!

Have you signed up to Birchbox yet? What do you think?

Love
