So my November Birchbox landed on my doorstep about a week ago (let me not even go into the drama that I went through to get the box, Yodel are the worst ever). So I thought I’d show you the goodies that I was given this month.
The theme for this month is Cosy at Home and we all know I’m all about cosiness. This month I got try the Montezuma’s Organic 54% Cocoa Milk Chocolate. I’m always eyeing this up in Tossed so it was nice to finally try it. I’m too used to eating crap chocolate, so for me it wasn’t as delicious as Cadbury’s bar, but it was still damn good.
The next thing I tried was the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper Rio, sample boxes are so hit and miss when it comes to lip colours so I wasn’t expecting anything I can use. I personally wouldn’t wear this shade because it looks like foundation lips. Silly old me tried this on inside forgetting it was a lip plumper and spent 5 minutes wondering why it was stinging so much.
I’ve written a couple of posts on cleansers and I was surprised to find a full size cleanser from Dr. Jart+ V7 Cleansing Foam. I was surprised for two reasons, one it was full size but also because I stay away from foam cleansers, for me they always make my skin feel stripped. I used this on the day I got the box and I’m not going to lie, it felt like I was using those soap bars that instantly make everything dry and I HATE those bar soaps. Honestly the minute the water went into contact with the cleanser I just felt that dreaded dryness. I’m going to give it another go, but honestly? I’m wishing they had given me one of the other products.
I also received the Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask for hair and I’m looking forward to trying that to see if it can give my weave some life! Another full size product was the OPI Turn on the Haute Light – I absolutely love this name! To be honest when I saw it I was like ‘ooh this is nice but nope wouldn’t ever suit me’ but I painted my nails with it the next day and actually wore it out and I liked it. I think it would look lovely on the tips of red painted nails. The last thing I got was the Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Oil, I am yet to use it but it definitely sounds perfect for winter!
Not going to lie nothing in this box really tickled by fancy but it will be nice to try out these products.
