The Birchbox To Brighten Up Your Day | January 2017

My faveee time of the month is when my Birchbox* pops through the letterbox of my front door. A new year, a new Birchbox* – & I was eagerly anticipating this months box after seeing sneak peaks through emails and their social media pages. The January 2017 box promised to add a “Sprinkle of Happiness” to this month, to kick off happy year full of positivity. Now that’s definitely something that I can get on-board with. The yellow geometric box design oozes happy vibes, and looks oh-so inviting during this gloomy month of Jan.

Lord & Berry Conceal-It Crayon in Beige* (Full Size)

Apparently this product is a Birchbox* Exclusive, so I’m pretty okay with seeing it in the box. I say okay purely because I have so so so many of these concealer pencil thingys. If you don’t already own one, this is a nifty little pencil for concealing under the brows for a tidy up or to highlight the cupid’s bow. After swatching this one, it’s clearly super creamy and blends incredibly fast – quite unlike the usual chalky stick formulas. Can’t wait to give this product a shot on my next good brow day!

Whish Shaving Cream in Acai Grapefruit* (Sample Size)

A girl always needs shaving products, am I right? This lil guy is no exception, it smells so bloody good – fresh & fruity is always a winner with me! Plus, a little goes a long way – so this sample size is quite generous. It promises to moisturise, nourish, and soothe shaved skin which is just what I need after getting some seriously dry skin this winter time. If I really like this one, I’ll definitely be purchasing the full size because it just smells that good.

Merci Handy Hand Cream in New Wave* (Full Size)

Unfortunately, even though this a full sized item, I’m not too excited about seeing this product in my box this month. This month’s leaflet suggests that the scent you get is pretty random, and I got the New Wave variety (secretly really wishing I got one of the other two scents tbh) I don’t use hand cream a lot, so I’ll probably be passing this on to my sister or a friend because it does have a great formula that’s non-greasy and absorbs pretty darn fast too!

NUXE Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer* (Sample Size)

Although I wouldn’t use an oil on my face, I would definitely use it on my hair – so I’m in love with this little sample of the multi-use Nuxe oil that is so highly spoken of in the blogging/vlogging world. I love the fact that it has a bit of shimmer in, and it would work great on the shoulders or collarbone for a subtle shimmery glow on a special evening or night out, for sure.

Nails Inc. London Nail Polish in Chelsea Square* (Sample Size)

Even though the nail polish colours are assorted in this months box, I did get a good’un. A pretty glittery pink polish is a purrrfect addition to my collection as I wouldn’t usually go for it myself. I did expect this to be a top coat type polish but 3 layers later, and this shade is 100% opaque, which crazy for a glitter polish. 5/5 from me, Birchbox*!
