For December, Birchbox have partnered with British fashion favourite Sophia Webster! Inspired by Sophia’s sparkling gemstone Suri shoe, the box alone is a must-have collectable for any fashionista. Inside you’ll find an exclusive to Birchbox coin purse, designed by Sophia herself, along with some amazing beauty samples. Such a treat!
So what’s in the box I hear you cry? Well first of all we have the Eyeko Fat Eye Stick which is actually a full sized product and exclusive to Birchbox. Mine came in a shimmering smoke colour and when applied it has a lovely glossy finish. I love these kind of eye sticks as they are just so easy to use and give a great smudgy finish. Next we have the Benefit Christmas Cracker which is another Birchbox exclusive. Inside is the High Beam liquid skin illuminator. This stuff is nothing short of a miracle I love it! Then we have the Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo in a handy 30ml size. This would be perfect for popping in your overnight bag if you were going away over the holidays. It has a moisture rich formula and helps to repair damage and improve shine. It also smells amazing! Next we have the full size Models Own nail polish and mine was the Absinthe colour which is basically just Christmas in a bottle – sparkletastic! Then we have the Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil which is just divine. I am a huge convert to facial oils having tried them in previous beauty boxes. I love that just a couple of drops go such a long way and it can be used from face to feet for beautifully healthy skin. Next we have Elsor Firming Collagen Day Cream which is yet another Birchbox exclusive. I told you this months box was a cracker, didn’t I? This gives skin a plumping boost and has an ultra hydrating lotion which is wonderfully rich. And last but by no means least we have the amazing Sophia Webster Purse. Take a walk on the wild side with this leopard print pouch from the coverted designer and Birchbox collaborator. Plus there is an exclusive discount voucher for 20% off Sophia Webster online in December!
Birchbox is a subscription service and for just £10 a month, you are sent a box of beauty and lifestyle goodies to enjoy. You can cancel the subscription at any time though, it is totally flexible. One thing that I especially love is that you can create your own beauty profile online so that the samples will be tailored just for you. Some products are sample sizes but there are often full sized treats too. You can also earn reward points each month which can then be used towards purchases in the e-shop where all of the products from the boxes are available to buy.
I absolutely love Birchbox and it has to be said that they really have pulled out the stops for December! It is such a lovely treat every month though and a great way of discovering new products. I subscribed myself after being sent a box to review here on my blog earlier in the year and I can hand on heart say that I have loved every single box plus the service itself has been faultless which sadly can’t be said for many other subscription boxes that I have tried.
