Birchbox Unboxing - November 2017

Hey Whisperers,

It's that time again, Birchbox time. I've said in my past few months that I've been thinking of switching my subscription to Glossybox and I've decided that I'm definitely going to be doing that starting January so next months Birchbox post will be the last! This month's box is a pretty good one though so lets get into unboxing it!

Birchbox Unboxing - November 2017

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. Each box is designed and themed differently each month, with this month's box being Vogue 100 themed.  Birchbox has introduced a new scheme called Birchbox Benefits, where after 6 months of being subscribed, you become a Birchbox VIP meaning you get the first chance to pick a product or the design of your box each month. As a  Birchbox VIP you also get 15% off everything in the Birchbox shop with it a pretty good deal for just being subscribed. 

What I Got This Month

Percy and Reed Smoothed,Sealed and Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil. 
RRP £14

By now we all know that i don't really use any of the hair products that i receive in my boxes. I have super sensitive skin so i tend to stay away from hair oils. I have altered my Beauty Profile but i seem to get hair products pretty much every month. Although i won't be using this oil i did swatch it to get a feel of it and it does feel quite nice, it isn't too thick like some other hair oils and it does smell quite nice. It isn't an overpowering smell, it kind of just smells clean which i like. I think if you're an avid hair oil user this would be a great product for you.

Birchbox Brush Cleaner 
Full Size - RRP £5

I already have a product similar to this so i may put this into my upcoming giveaway, but these little brush cleaners are a life saver. I use my Primark one to clean my eye shadow brushes all the time and it makes it so easy to get all of the pigment out of them. I also love how small they are as it makes travelling with them so easy. Although it is a pretty basic product to get i am super happy that i got it, it's definitely one of my favourite products in this months box.

Seche Vite, Dry Fast Top Coat 
Full Size - RRP £9

I love the sound of this product, according to the Birchbox description says that this nail polish penetrates (not a good enough reason to use the word penetrate - if you know you know)  through your polish to form it into a solid with a 'long lasting' glossy seal. The packaging also says that it is 'the worlds finest top coat' and that it won't cause your nails to turn yellow like most nail polishes do after you have them on for awhile. I can't wear nail polish at the minute as i work with food so i can't wait till i have some time off work so i can give this a try. 

Clarins Hand And Nail Treatment Cream
RRP £21

I've never tried anything from Clarins before so i was quite excited when i saw this product in my box. My hands have been so dry lately as the weather has been changing so this product couldn't have arrived at a better time. Although it isn't full size it is a pretty decent sample size at 30ml, which personally i think is a perfect size for a hand cream. I've tested it out a few times (I've literally just put it on before i started this paragraph) and it's amazing, it isn't greasy or super thick like a lot of other hand creams I've tried and it sinks into the skin super fast. I'm not a huge fan of the scent as it is more of a clean/plant like smell but I'm definitely going to be keeping it in my bag over the colder months.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
RRP £24.50

I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but i frigging love this bronzer. It's super pigmented, blendable and it's the perfect colour. I already have quite a few mini's of this product but i will never have enough of it. I love the plastic packaging on this one as it will make it a lot easier to store than my other boxed minis. I could receive one of these every month and I'd be happy as can be it's one of my all time favourite beauty products.

This Months Total RRP 


Overall, I'm pretty happy with this months box, it's definitely better than some of the other boxes that I've received lately. As i did previously say, next months Birchbox unboxing will be my last but i will definitely be unboxing a new beauty box in January so keep a look out for that!

If you want to try out Birchbox feel free to use my link to get £5 off your first box making it just £7.95! 

I hope you've enjoyed this months unboxing!
