It still feels so weird typing 2017, it feels like 2016 only started yesterday but here we are one year later and one Birchbox later too. I loved getting my Birchbox over the past 4 months so instead of cancelling my subscription in December like i initially planned I decided to keep it. So here we are un-boxing the January edition of Birchbox and it's a good one.
What Is Birchbox?
If you're new to Birchbox, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that you receive each month with 5 products to try out. The products can range from sample size to full size and they also range in price. All products in the box can be found on the Birchbox website where the box is purchased for £12.95 each month.
What I Got This Month
Lord and Berry Conceal-it Crayon in Ivory
RRP - £12.00 Full Size
I saw that this concealer was going to be part of this months box on twitter and i was super excited. I received a Lord and Berry lipstick a few boxes ago and i love it. Although i did receive what I'm guessing is the lightest shade it is still a little bit too dark for me so I've passed it on to my sister to use.
NUXE Multi-Use Dry Oil Shimmer
RRP - £21
When i first saw this i thought it was a nail varnish but then i saw it was a dry oil and i was more curious than excited. I'd never tried a dry oil before this but after swatching it on my arm I've fallen in love with it. It adds the perfect amount of moisture to the skin and it also leaves a beautiful shimmer behind too.
Merci Handy Hand Cream in New Wave
RRP £4.90 Full Size
Now I'm not the biggest fan of hand creams, i love the Zoella one but that's pretty much it. But when i tried this i fell in love. This hand cream is so thin and it sinks into the hands so well instead of leaving them greasy, it also has small blue beads in it that melt on your skin, on the back they're described as tiny beads that will soften your hands and melt your heart, i love it! This hand cream also smells incredible and I'll definitely be purchasing one when i finish using it.
Naobay HydraPlus Cream
I wasn't really that excited by this product as i had already received 2 moisturising products. This body cream is natural and organic and although it does make it 3 moisturising products it is the perfect size for travelling. It doesn't have the best scent but it does feel really hydrating and it absorbs well into the skin too.
Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Acai Grapefruit
I was quite excited when i saw this product in my box, anything to help keep my legs smooth, soft and hair free is amazing in my book. This shaving cream feels so soft on the skin. it includes Shea butter and coconut oil alongside other ingredients so i am hoping it will help keep my legs moisturised too. The smell of this shaving cream is something that i have not yet decided if i like yet, it pretty much smells like Calpol which although isn't bad, it is a strange smell for a bath product.
