Birchbox – December 2015: The Unveiling 

 

Last Monday I received my eagerly anticipated Birchbox and when I opened the package I was presented with the below carnage! 😓

 

The cute green and glitter clutch bag was ripped and inside the products were all smashed and damaged. The perfume sample had exploded everywhere (nice scent by the way) and the showergel had foamed up soiling the clutch bag and the products inside. I was so disappointed. I emailed Birchbox straight away and received a whole new package by the end of the week. Great customer service Birchbox! I am incredibly impressed. 
  

Above is a photo of my December Birchbox  – second edition. Now let’s see what I got inside! 

Elemis -Pro Collagen Marine Cream (sample size, full size £80)

I am a huge fan of Elemis skincare and this was a firm staple in my routine several years ago… Until I went back to University to study for my MA and this was no longer in my student budget! So I know I am going to love this. This is a great 15ml sample size. Love it.

Roloxin – Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque (sample size, full size £79)

This is a generous face mask promising to smooth wrinkles, diminish pores & boost skin radiance. I’m looking forward to giving this a go over the festive period.

Benefit – Puff Off! & They’re Real Push-Up Liner (sample size, full size for both £41)

These are adorable sample sizes of these iconic Benefit products. I’ve never tried either of these so these are a welcome opportunity to try-before-you-buy.

Skin & Co – Sicilian Body Gel (sample size, full size £15)

I love trying out new shower gel brands and this one smells incredible. This has a mouth watering citrus scent and is packed with Sicilian Orange & Olive extracts. Beautiful addition to my shower!

 

Ciaté – Paint Pot in Dangerous Affair (sample size 5ml, full size £9)

I love a good nail polish and Ciaté are a great quality brand. This colour is a beautiful deep shade of red, perfect to take me through the festive season and onto the winter months.

Model Co – Ultra Long-Lastinh Lipstick in Stiletto (full size £15.50)

This is a stunning bright red lipstick in a hydrating semi-matte formula; long lasting & comfortable to wear. A girl can never have enough lipsticks and this is a new brand for me. What a great Birchbox this month.
  

I have been super impressed with Birchbox this month. All the products are great and I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use out of each and every one of them – including the rather cute velvet & glittery clutch bag.

I hope you have enjoyed my post. What did you get in your Birchbox this month? I love reading and replying to your comments.
