JANUARY BIRCHBOX


It feels like forever since I done a Birchbox post, so much festivities have happened in the last month. Getting straight into the box, this month's Birchbox is a collaboration with Pinterest so you receive some cute illustrated postcards and 6 products which include a bonus item of a compact mirror.



First item that caught my eye is the Benefit They're Real Tinted Primer, which I have done a full review, I tested it with the Benefit They're Real Mascara as recommended, see the results in my review here.

Next item on the list is the Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up Brightener + Waterliner, which is to be used as a highlighter on your brow bone and cheeks bones or to enhance your eyes by applying onto your waterline. This smells of colouring pencils which is not very appealing, but it does glide onto the skin quite easily or can be used as a brightening concealer. 

For body-care I received the Caudalie Fleur de Vigne Shower Gel which is suitable for sensitive skin, it is enriched with aloe vera, white rose, rose pepper and grape blossom. It smells of spring, when the flowers are about to bloom, I think I will enjoy using this a lot.

For face cleansing I received the Absolution L'Eau Soir et Matin which is a cleansing water, this products is to help purify, soften and tone your skin. It is enriched with aloe vera and hazel-nut oil. I do prefer oil cleanser to cleansing water since it's more gently to the skin. 

For haircare items this month I received the Parlor Moisturising & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner, I always love testing out new hair products especially when it contains the words 'moisture' and 'restoring' - having coloured hair, my hair sometimes looks dry and wispy.

Lastly the bonus item : the Birchbox Compact Mirror, it has #nofilter slogan on a pink background - it's quite cute but  I don't think I'll put this in my handbag since it will scratch.

Until next time!

  5. I enjoyed your UK Birchbox review which I already like most of your goodies! I am always curious about what fellow Birchbox followers get in Canada, UK, and other parts of the world! I love my US Birchbox in which I got two...one with my sample choice of Eyeko Fat Eye liner and the Guest Editor Korean Beauty box! I love them both!
