December Birchbox Review

I thought I'd get a quick review up of the December Birchbox. It's not the best Birchbox I've ever tried but there are some little gems included in this box that are great!

Nail Rock Nail Glitter - This is definitely my favourite item of the whole box! I love my nail art and this is especially great for the holiday season. I painted my nails with two coats of this gorgeous polish and then popped some glitter on my ring finger to create an accent nail. The results were great and it lasted quite a while too!

Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow - This mineral eyeshadow is such a beautiful gold/bronze colour and can be applied for a sheer wash of colour or used with a wet eyeshadow brush to really build up pigment! It's another great item for the holiday season.

Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray - This has become a great little handbag product for me. It provides quite a light hold so perfect for everyday use. This botanical-rich formula is great for your hair and also great for the environment since it's a non-aerosol! 

Sin-Care Party Girl Serum - This serum is really lovely. It's very thin in consistency and absorbs well into the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, calendula and garden cress that all aim to activate the skin's detoxification process, reduce dark circles and brighten your complexion.

Lamilou Body Milk - Now this product smells nice and has a nice texture however, it contains mineral oil so it's not something I'd use on my body to moisturise. I'll probably be passing this on to a friend!

Twistband - The idea behind this is that they are meant to be a hair tie that unlike others don't snag strands of your hair or leave ugly creases. I found that to be true but to be honest I'm just not that fussed about hair ties - a lot of the time I just use hair clips anyway! This would be a great product for someone who often ties their hair back into a sleek ponytail and wants something less damaging. 

Finally, this Birchbox comes with a $20 gift voucher for Baublebar. I absolutely adore Baublebar as a brand and cannot wait for them to launch in the UK! I recently bought this rose gold bracelet here from their Miss Glamorazzi collection and I am in love!

Happy reading,
