December is one of my favourite months for trying new beauty products - especially as everything is Christmas themed. A few years ago, i tried a subscription box but cancelled after only two boxes because i was bored by the amount of perfume samples i was receiving. A few months back, i decided to try again and a new brand. So i signed up to receive a Birchbox once a month.
We all know how Beauty Boxes work. You pay £12.95 a month and you get samples of high end or luxury products sent to your door once a month. It's not always sample sizes - you can get full size products too. So, this is what i got this month!
First up is the Ilsci Organics Gel Mask Grape Stem (£39.95 full size). I always love a good face mask to give my skin some added TLC. This mask claims to smooth and rejuvenate the skin and is apparently all natural, can't wait to try this out!
Electric hair Hydrate Shampoo (£17.50 Full size). I dye my hair a lot which has led to it feeling quite dry so anything that promises to hydrate my hair is a good idea for me. I haven't heard of this brand before so will see how this goes!
Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in 'Smoke' (£8 Full Size). This is the first of the 'full size' products in this month's box. I've only tried a couple of Eyeko products and i love dark smokey eyes so this product will be getting a lot of use from me!
Benefit High Beam (£19.50 full size). I LOVE High Beam so i was really happy to get this in my box. It's my favourite liquid highlighter and it lasts for ages so this little bottle will last me a while.
Models Own Velvet Goth Nail Polish in 'Amethyst' (£5 Full Size). This is the second full size product. I have another colour from this collection and it's gorgeous. It's matte but sparkly which is a huge plus. Only problem is removing this can be a major pain in the bum...
Trilogy Certified Rosehip Oil (£16.50 Full Size). I've never tried using Rosehip oil before but i know a lot of people swear by it. I get a couple of dry areas, especially around my shoulders that could use some extra nourishment.
This months 'lifestyle' gift is a Sophia Webster Purse which is leopard print and stripes. It's cute and I'll probably keep this in my handbag for my small change but it's a nice touch.
I've loved this months Birchbox!
What did you get this month? Tell me in the comments!
