This months Birchbox arrived quite late this month compared to normal, but I was super excited about this months box as it is Christmas I was expecting quite a good box filled with some Christmas goodies.
Now it’s safe to say my expectations for this box were way too high as I wasn’t overly excited by this months box, reminded me a little bit of the disappointment I would feel with every GlossyBox I received but i’m going to stop with the negativity and try to enjoy using the products in this months box.
This months box is of course based all around Christmas, getting us through the hectic days and prepping us for the fun filled parties. So let’s get into the products I received in this months box.
First up is the Number 4 Non Aerosol Hairspray, described to be great for your hair and the environment, leaving your hair with a crunch free hold. Now, even though I didn’t have a clue what this product was when I first looked at it, in hindsight it’s not that bad sounding and I can’t wait to give this a test run. The next product is another that looked rather odd and that is the Jane Irelade Cheek & Lip Stain. This has got to be the tiniest lip product i’ve ever laid eyes on, but it will come in so handy on nights out to just throw in my bag. Keeping with makeup, the next product is the Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow which if you can’t see is in this lovely bronzey gold shade. I think i’ll probably get quite some use out of this, unless it’s like the BarryM Dazzle Dust’s that literally go everywhere!
Moving on, the next product is the BeeKind Body Lotion, which i’m not that excited about. To me a body lotion is such an obvious option and I think Birchbox could have come up with something a little more exciting. Next up is the Nail Rock Nail Velvet, which i’ve seen lurking in many Topshop stores but i’ve always wondered what a velvet manicure would look like so i’m keen to give this a go. The next product is another that I didn’t have a clue about, but it is the Twistband which are those hairbands that don’t leave your hair with any kinks/creases. I’ve actually used this a few times and so far i’m quite impressed. The last product is a lovely little perfume sample of the Lipsy London Glam Fragrance which smells really nice! I love perfume samples as you can throw them in your bag for quick refreshes.
So that is this months Birchbox, even though I said I wasn’t that impressed I think I was just expecting a little more.. but i’m excited to see what the new year brings!
