Just a little review for you all 🙂
So I’ve been eyeing up Birchbox for years.. yep years! Though I never actually subscribed until December. ‘Tis the season and all that jazz. I ordered myself a box and also bought a couple to give away as Christmas presents.
I was so excited when I received my box. The only other box I’d tried before was pink parcel and that was pre-kids. That was far less exciting and more tampons and sanitary products with a tea bag and lipgloss type box. I’m trying to look after myself more at the moment. A little self care never hurt anyone. I spend all of my time looking after the girls that I have ended up neglecting myself and look like such a tramp. So I am starting by treating myself to a beauty box every month and I’ve figured out it will be cheaper than buying all of these products separately and I’ll get to try lots of different products. I’m starting to really get into skincare now and enjoy reading makeup and skincare reviews.
The December Birchbox came in a lovely sparkly box which was very festive!
I received 7 products in the box. This is what I got.
Laritzy Cosmetics – Long Lasting liquid lipstick in Tidal
I got to choose between two colours, this one being a mauve/nude colour. It goes on really smooth and I love the colour. I’ve worn it quite a few times since receiving it and it lasts all day which I was impressed by.
Oh K! – Bubble Sheet Mask
I used this the other week and not only was is hilarious as it was bubbling/foaming up but my skin did actually feel amazing for a few days after. I’ve wanted to try one of these for ages so I was pleased this was included in my box.
Balance Me – Flash Cleanse Micellar Water
I’ve just finished the little bottle of this and I liked it. It made removing my makeup easy. (including waterproof mascara if any of you were wondering) It has a gentle fresh scent and made my face feel really clean.
Space Masks – Self Heating Eye Mask
This was probably my favourite product in the box! I’ve seen a few people post about these on the gram but just assumes they were a regular sheet mask! I was wrong! Once you take it out of the packet you place it over your eyes and it magically heats up. I’m not talking hot and burning but a gentle heat that feels so calming. I woke up feeling refreshed for a change! Definitely buying these again. Every time I’ve checked their website since using this mask they’ve been sold out so I hope they’ll be in stock soon.
Percy & Reed – Totally TLC Hydrating Mask
This made my hair feel so soft and it definitely felt more hydrated afterwards. Smelled lovely too.
Birch box hair comb –
The comb itself is quite pretty but having thick Asian hair I need a proper hair brush to get all of the tangles out. I’ll probably give this to one of my friends if they want it.
Hotel Chocolat – Chocolate Duo
Cute little addition to the December birch box. I ate one and gave the other to Reuben in an attempt to stop us eating all of the Christmas choccies before the big day. We still ate the Christmas chocolate and replaced them more than once.. oops?
