Christmas with Birchbox





It wouldn't be a new month without my monthly box of beauty goodies from Birchbox and December's is full of Christmas cheer. December's theme is 'All that Glimmers*' and comes in a super luxe clutch bag. The bag is a really good size for a night out and with three panels in pleather, green velvet and gold glitter, it's the perfect festive accessory. 

This month's 'box' comes with five exclusive samples, six if you count the perfume sample. You all know my thoughts on perfume samples in subscription boxes, they're a waste of space. Thankfully products from Rituals, Benefit Cosmetics, Ciate, Model Co and Embryolisse make up for it. The Rituals foaming shower gel in White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren smells amazing, I couldn't stop sniffing it. Used in the morning before work it really gets you ready for the day ahead with a bounce in your step. The Ciaté polish in Fit for a Queen is the perfect, silver Christmas nail polish, I love the brand and have a few bottles so I already know the formula will be fab. 

Benefit Cosmetics feature again this month with the ultimate party companion, They're Real liner; Use it alongside the Model Co lipstick in Smitten and you're party ready. You then have Puff Off and the Embryolisse moisturiser which will help sort your skin out the morning after the night before. Birchbox have made sure everything you need this party season is to hand. 

What do you think of the December Birch'Clutch'?

  2. I really like the clutch bag! I've heard great things about birchbox, but I still wish that we could get Glossybox in the UK, would make my day! I think for the fact that they are only sample sizes makes me so hesitant to get a subscription box! Have to say though, that nailpolish is absolutely STUNNING! xx

    1. I thought you could get Glossybox here? I've never tried Glossybox before though, the NARS one looked amazing. xx

  3. I really hate it when subscription boxes send perfume samples! It looks like the other products and bag make up for it, though!

  4. I subscribed to this again as I felt like throwing some more money at boxes haha, I was actually really happy with it! I like getting perfume samples but it's because I am lazy and could really just go to the shop ;) xxx
