Merry Birchbox everybody! I do love a good subscription box at Christmas time – so lets see what festive goodies Birchbox UK had to offer this holiday season!
Coming home to a Birchbox under the tree, it was like having a mini pre-Christmas! This months theme was all about sparkle and shine, with products to do just that throughout the festive month.
Number 4 non aerosol hairspray
I’m really intrigued by this, anything that’s good for my hair and the environment goes right on my to-try list. I’ve got the big works Christmas party coming up this weekend so I’ll be giving this a test run and seeing if non-aerosol hairsprays are the way to go!
Nail Rock nail glitter
I did almost pick up at Ciante nail glitter kit the other night so I’m glad I held back and saved the ££. I got a really Christmas tree green glitter in my Nail Rock box, not really a colour I usually go for and the glitter is closer to the size of sequins than the glitter I’m used to! I have a feeling this is going to be a messy experiment. The varnish is clear, nothing fancy there. It does feel like a really cheap version of the Ciante ones so maybe I won’t be so happy I held out on buying one.
Twistband hair tie
I love these fabric snag free bands, I bought a bunch from Prairie Charms a while back and they’re amazing! They last longer than normal elastics and are great for my hair! This one’s from a company called Twistband. It’s really thin and is nowhere near as strong as my Prairie Charms bands, it wouldn’t hold a pony tail but it would work well in the end of a braid. The quote card is really cute though!
Delarom acquaconfort mask
Can’t go wrong with a face mask, and with the party season fast approaching we need them more than ever! This one boasts hydration and the restoration of suppleness and vitality – perfect for the morning after the night before I’d say!
Alima Pure luminous shimmer eyeshadow
I love the colour of this, it’s a really nice brown/taupe shade with lots and lots of sparkle! It’s right up my street. I love mineral eye shadows; they are so build-able, making them great from both day and evening wear. I got the shade Paris.
BeeKind body lotion
A nourishing non greasy body lotion with fresh lemon, and boy do you smell the lemon! It actually reminds me of a lemon scented bathroom cleaner we have, so that’s a little off putting! It dries really nicely into the skin though. What I really love about this product is a portion of the proceeds go towards protecting the honey bees and their environment. I’ve seen some amazing eye palettes this brand is releasing next year and I’m really excited! I’m a sucker for a good cause!
Baublebar gift card
This is probably the most exciting thing in the box! Baublebar are finally launching in the UK and I’m really excited! This $20 is roughly £12. I’ve seen so many pretty things on there already, it won’t take me long to find something shiny to purchase with it!
