Birchbox December 2014 Review (AMAZING BOX)

Hello everyone!
I'm here to rave about the December Birchbox which I think is simply amazing! It features an impressive line up of both well-known brands and perfect products for the Festive season! This month I received 6 products (2 of which are full-size!) and a lifestyle extra which is perfect for when I am out and about. The design of this months box is also eye-catching! If you are unaware as to what Birchbox is, it is a subscription service where you pay £12.95 monthly or you can choose between a 6-month subscription/yearly subscription. Each Birchbox usually contains 5 deluxe beauty samples (Although sometimes there is a full-size)  and a lifestyle extra.
In addition to this they also have a shop where you can buy any products you have received and would like to try in their shop. They also have a reward scheme where you get 5 points (50p) per survey you complete, there is generally 7 surveys per month and so it doesn't take long before you can use your points in the shop. I have a code and a referral link which will be listed below where you can get £5 off this months Birchbox as well as an extra 50 points(£5) when you subscribe.


The contents of my Birchbox:

  • Ilsci Organics Gel Mask in 'Grape Stem Cell' (Sample size) Full size is £39.95 
I love that this Gel Mask is plant-based and so it is quite soothing when applied on the skin. I have use this in the evening before I go sleep, I like to apply it all around and let it sit in order for to dry then I like to wash it off. I also quite like the scent of this mask. 

  • Electric Hair Electric Hydrate Shampoo (Sample size) Full size is £17.50
I haven't had a chance to try this yet although as of recent I have been suffering with very dry hair and my hair has been looking very limp so this should be great for restoring it back to its natural glory. This shampoo is perfect for those cold winter nights. 
  • Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in 'Smoke' (Full size and Birchbox exclusive) £8
Eyeko is a brilliant brand for eye products. I have previously tested eye makeup remover wipes and I absolutely loved them. This eye stick is perfect for when you are in a rush, simply glide it over the eyes to give an edge to your look. Another great thing about this product is that when it is applied it is not too intense so that you can't blend it in or you have to much product on your eye, it is very easy to use and this will remain in my makeup bag for when I am in a hurry. 
  • Benefit Christmas Cracker which contains High Beam (Sample size) Full size is £19.50
I love High Beam and so getting this sample only made me love Birchbox even more! High beam provides a beautiful luminous glow to your face which is great for winter as your skin tends to lack that natural radiance it normally has. This covers all of that and keeps your skin looking amazing all year round! You can never go wrong with a bit of High Beam!
  • Models Own Nail Polish in 'Amethyst' (Full size) £5
You got to choose the color of this polish if you were a Birchbox subscriber. I choose Amethyst and I am glad I did. I quite like the color and I also like that the glitter within it isn't too obnoxious. It provides a Matte finish which is different from other glitter nail polishes. 
  • Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (Sample size) Full size is £16.50 
Let me start off by saying I like that this product is organic which is certainly an attractive aspect in my book. What is even better is that it hydrates dry patches which we all get during this time of the year and with it being organic I have no worries about it damaging my skin.
  • Sophia Webster Purse (Lifestyle extra and Birchbox exclusive) £10 
Sophia Webster also designed this months stunning Birchbox. This purse is great for storing pennies on the go or keeping small makeup essentials. Its cute design is also another positive!

As I have stated I love this months Birchbox and in my opinion I think this has been the best of all the beauty boxes I have received this month. I think Birchbox has perfectly captured the Festive/Winter season and I am looking forward to future Birchboxes. As previously stated there is a link and a code above the contents of the box should you wish to sign up. Once again thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. Thank you!
