Any December beauty box should be pretty good, what with Christmas and all, but I’ve been particularly impressed with Birchbox‘s offering. I even got to choose my nail polish shade before delivery – I’ve got several red glitter polishes so I chose the green, appropriately named “Absinthe”. The box itself was designed by someone called Sophia Webster, and I really like it – it’s covered in jewels and is really pretty.
Here’s what I got in my box:
Sophia Webster purse – a handy purse with a nice design. I’m sure I’ll use this at some point.
Models Own Nail Polish Velvet Goth – I chose the shade “Absinthe” which is a gorgeous glittery dark green. Really pleased with this.
Benefit High Beam – I already have some of this, but I love this product so was happy to get some more. Plus, I love the little cracker it came in.
Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo – I always enjoy trying new shampoos and can’t wait to give this a go.
Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream – I hope I’m still young enough not to need firming cream, but I’ll give this a go anyway, to see if it makes a difference to my skin.
Eyeko Fat Eye Stick – This came in a lovely smoky shade, easy to apply and very effective.
Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – I will use this after the Christmas holidays, when I am sure I will be in desperate need of something to brighten my skin.
Altogether, a really impressive box, which I’m pretty pleased with.
