When I got the email in my inbox that Birchbox was going to be collaborating with Vogue magazine, I did let out a little squeal. Vogue is just the epitome of all things on trend and magical, or so I’m told. So I was buzzing off my face to see what kind of delightful goodies would be in this month’s Birchbox. And boy’oh’boy did they deliver. I think this is my favourite one so far, I genuinely love every single thing. Which in all honesty, hasn’t happened thus far. So let’s get into Birchbox November 2017.
Benefit – Hoola Bronzer
I’ve wanted to try this little gem for roughly 4398 months. However, the price to size ratio was always a little off for me. But now I can try it without having to part with the best part of £20. It’s been voted the UK’s number 1 bronzer for more years than anything should be in the top spot. Which means it’s got to be glorious right?
Percy & Reed – Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil, Oil
I am loving the idea of this. It functions as an oil for your hair, providing heat defence, smoothing any nasties away and giving your hair a bucket load of volume WITHOUT THE GREASE. As a gal who has had mega oily hair since I was about 13, oils and styling products I usually have to give a bit of a wide birth as to not add to the drama. And you know I am not about washing my hair every other day, so I’m super excited to try this out. You’re meant to apply this to towel dried hair and then style as you usually would. It smells like a bloody salon, I’m so excited to make it seem like I’m one of those women whose hair is always immaculate.
Clarins – Hand & Nail Treatment Cream
If you’ve seen my latest ‘what’s in my bag’ you’ll know that hand cream has to be within my reach at all times. And Clarins is one of my favourite skincare brands, so I’m expecting great things from this guy. I love the fact that it’s for your nails as well, which is ideal as my nails start to get thin and flaking in the winter months.
James Read – Overnight Tan Sleep Mask Tan Face
This thrills me more than a beauty product should. Essentially it’s an overnight face mask, that gives you a sunkissed glow as well! WHAT?! I can get tanned as I sleep?! As run ins with the sun are few and far between here in England, anything to make my pale skin not so see-through is a winner to me. Does anyone else feel like they’re skin and general appearance is SO much better with a tan? You apply a thin layer to your face and neck, not forgetting to blend it into your hairline, it dries clear, you go to sleep and wake up with fresh glorious skin, that has a glow. I’m trying this ASAP, MAKE ME TANNED!
Birchbox – Brush Cleaner
Who doesn’t always need a brush cleaner? This is so dinky and compact, it’s perfect for travelling and making it so you don’t have to carry a tonne of extra brushes with you. I love that it has different surfaces for the different textures and sizes of your brushes. Birchbox are killing the game!
Have you tried any of these products before?
