November Birchbox | What's Inside?

Saturday, 8 November 2014

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all doing well and have some fun plans for the weekend! Let me just start off this post by saying that this is one of my favourite Birchboxes that I've received over the past few months. It included two full size samples, so you're definitely getting your moneys worth! Anyway, on to the products that I received...

O.P.I Coca-Cola Red Nail Polish (Full Size) 

When the post man dropped off this months Birchbox I was so excited as it felt a lot heavier than the normal boxes that I've been receiving (yes, I am still that person at Christmas who rips into the biggest present first!) and this product was one of the reasons why. I was so happy to receive this product as OPI are one of my favourite nail polish brands, but they're also a bit pricy so they are only really a treat for me. I also love how I received this beautiful red colour. Red is such a classic colour and it will be perfect for the Christmas season! 

Jane Iredale Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner (Sample)

I wasn't really sure what this product was when I first pulled it out of the box, as it was just a little clear tube filled with white liquid however after a little research, I'm really happy to have received this sample. The Purelash Lash Extender and Conditioner is a protecting formula designed to strengthen and lengthen lashes and is something that you just apply under your mascara. I've always been interested in trying these lash extending products, but I've always been a bit skeptical so haven't ever wanted to pay for a full size product, so I'm happy to have a little sample to test out before buying a full size product. 

Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Hair Mask (Sample)

I actually thought that this was a face mask when I first pulled it out of the box, the packing isn't the best at explaining the uses haha! It's actually a hair mask packed with argan oil, honey, amber and crushed pearls (ooh-la-la!). I haven't used this yet but you do get two samples of this so you can try it out a couple of times, although I have long hair so it will probably only be enough for one or two tests for me. I put my hair through a lot on a daily basis so I love trying out hair masks to try and restore it to it's former glory (pre-straightening days!). 

Dr Jart + Pore Refine Recover Primer (Full Size)

I was SO happy when I pulled this one out of the box, despite buying a primer earlier in the day (a girl can never have too many, right?). Dr Jart + is a range I've heard a lot about, particularly their base product, so I was over the moon to get a full size primer in this months box - and it's worth £15.95 so way more than the box itself! The primer is a mattifying primer that minimises pores and imperfections for a flawless base, I haven't tested this out yet so I can't vouch for it but when I tried it on the back of my hand it felt like a cross between the Benefit Porefessional and the Maybelline Baby Skin primer, except maybe a little thinner and more luxurious. I really struggle with oily skin and huge pores so I'm hoping for big things from this primer!

Weleda Lavendar Relaxing Body Oil (Sample)

I have to say, this was the only disappointing product for me, not because it's a bad product but I just really don't like the smell of lavender. However, it is a pretty hefty sample size so it will be perfect for popping on your pillow while travelling if you struggle to sleep. I think I will give this one to my Mum though as I just really can't stand the smell!

Montezuma's Mini Bar

Birchbox really do know the way to a girls heart...make up and chocolate! I'm a big chocolate lover so I was happy to receive this in the November box! The theme is cosy at home and I think this one goes perfectly with the theme. I always like to carry around something sweet in my handbag too as I suffer very badly from migraines and my tablets with something sweet is usually what I need to get through one, so this mini bar is perfect...well it would be, if I hadn't already eaten it!

Overall, I really love this months Birchbox*. I think it's amazing value for money this month as you get two full size products and a couple of little samples. If you would like to sign up to Birchbox or see their price plans, you can do so here

Lots of Love,
