December Birchbox
So whats in Decembers Birchbox?

This purse is quite sweet with its mix of pale blue and leopard print. This purse is perfect to store cards, loose change and not forgetting the lipstick this is the right size for most handbags.
 This purse is exclusive to Birchbox and has been designed for them too.
 (RRP £25)

I just love the name of this brand and it sounds quite promising, Electric hair is an indie brand and its  to help repair damaged hair and to improve shine with it moisture rich formula. The brand was founded by Mark Woolley whose approach to hairdressing is to help the client find their own personal 'look' and to make it work for their day to day life.
( RRP £17.50)

Models own have teamed with Birchbox before to bring us their amazing nail polishes. In this months box its Absinthe which is a exceptional green which is packed to max with glitter and adding a top coat will give it that extra shine, which is perfect for Christmas, New Year and parties.
Models Own is a cruelty free brand and all their nail polishes are vegan.
Full Size (RRP £5)

This jumbo pencil is the key to a perfect smokey eye which is super pigmented, all you have to do is apply like a thick eyeliner and smudge to create a smokey eye effect just like the 60s. This can also be used to create the thicker eyeliner effect as with all makeup I would always suggest using a primer first to help keep the makeup in place for longer.
Eyeko are a cruelty free brand and they are also vegan which is fantastic.
Full Size ( £8)

Rosehip oil is loved for its effects on scars, stretchmarks, dehydration and ageing skin, Trilogy is 100% natural and just contains rose hip oil and nothing else. Rosehip oil is bursting with fatty acids.
This oil can be used on the face or body with 2 or 3 drops or as needed and just massage into the skin.
(RRP £16.50)

At the end of a long week I just love using a face mask to relax so I am happy to have got this in this months birchbox! This is a plant based treatment and uses natural actives with a gel formula to help rejuvenate the skin.
Apply directly on the skin and leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off 
(RRP £39.95)

I just loved this as it was in a pretty pink cracker me and my husband pulled this and I won yay! High beam is a liquid highlighter and can be used on the cheek bones and on the brow bone and all you have to do is blend for the perfected highlighted look.
I am looking forward to trying this as at the moment I have makeup revolutions highlight and that is amazing and makes such a difference.
(RRP £19.50)

I am very pleased with this months birchbox and its matched the month perfectly at looking very festive and sparkly. December Birchbox is still available on their website at £10 a month with a P&P of £2.95. Check out the Birchbox website here!

  1. Salam Melissa! I've fallen in love with your blog haha! I just followed you! I've been wanting to try birchbox, but Im subscribed to ipsy, so I didn't think I needed to. But the box and bag look so pretty this month! I would love if you checked out my blog as well!


  2. Oooh we got exactly the same items in our boxes! I was slightly disappointed though, there wasn't anything (apart from Benefit High Beam in the cracker) that really excited me. What did you think of this month's?
