My November 2016 Birchbox – Unboxing / Review

It’s the time of the month that subscription boxes start arriving! I miss getting quite as many as I used to but I just don’t need samples upon samples, however fantastic and exciting they are. I am glad I still get Birchbox, though, and do want to get back in to the habit of sharing the contents with you.

If you decide to sign up, yourself, then you can use my referral code which will get both myself and you some points to spend in the Birchbox shop! My link is:

First things first… wow. I think it’s impossible to not love this month’s box. It is Stunning! I love the colours and the peacock feathers, it’s one of my favourite box designs to date.

As with some previous months the box is a drawer rather than a lidded box, I have to say I am loving the drawers as they are much more usable than the previous box style and I am looking forward to having a collection of these on my shelves once our room is sorted.

And here’s what I got in the beautiful box! I have to say I was rather pleased from the moment I opened the box as a few things jumped out at me straight away. I love Ecotools and their precision blush brush looks beautiful, and definitely a brush I’ll get lots of use out of. The other exciting product was the OCC Lip Tar primer. I’ve always wanted to try some products by OCC but I’ve not picked anything up and this looks like a fantastic product to start with.

Darphin and Nuxe are brands I’ve tried a number of times but am always happy to get in a box, both the Creme Prodigieuse and the Lumiere Essentielle are products that I will  happily use as part of my beauty regieme.

I am not sure if I’ve tried Marcelle before, but I feel like I may have had something from them in a different box. The shade of this BB cream is a little dark for me so I’m not sure how much use I’ll get from it, it seems to be a nice product, though and I’m sure it’ll suit plenty of other people.

A good box, though, especially the first two products – I am definitely going to get a lot of use out of both of those. Looking forward to seeing what Birchbox do for their December box, hopefully lots of fun christmas and winter themed things.

    OCC is actually amazing! I've tried their liquid lips before and they're one of the best, not too sure about the primer but I'm sure its just as good!
