November Birchbox Review

This month's Birchbox is all about icons. In the little letter from the Birchbox team it says "we're getting our motivation from the icons that help us to be the best possible versions of ourselves". Other than a cute little postcard of beauty related quotes from people like Audrey Hepburn, i'm not really sure how "iconic"this box is, but i'm happy with the products I received nonetheless so i'm going to share them with you!

Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara (Full Size RRP £18.50)-"This innovative stretch formula is smudge-free and lengthens lashes for a wide-eyed, fluttery look."

Weleda Replenishing Oat Shampoo (Full Size RRP £8.95)-"This gentle shampoo contains nourishing organic jojoba oil to smooth, reduce breakage and improve suppleness."

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Wash (Full Size RRP £18.00)- "Newly reformulated, deliciously scented body wash from this British heritage brand."

Chella Highlighter Pencil (Full Size RRP £15.95)- "Brighten and add glow to areas you wish to accentuate, i.e. brow bone, cheekbones and inner corners of eye."

English Laundry Signature For Her Eau de Parfum (Full Size RRP from £16)- "A divine delicate fragrance with elegant notes of quince, jasmine petals and musk."

Pukka Herbs Selection Of Teas (RRP £2.29)- "Try these delicious teas; Three Cinnamon, Elderberry & Echinacea and Earl Grey."

Birchbox  Pencil Sharpener (RRP £3)- "Caters to small and large pencils for precise, perfect application."

I can't really say too much about these products yet as I only received them yesterday, but this has been another great box in my opinion and i'm particularly pleased with the Laura Mercier mascara, which I used today and loved! I'm also intrigued by the Weleda shampoo as my hair could do with some nourishment as it's been quite dry lately. Finally, the extra goodie thrown in by Birchbox, the pencil sharpener, is so handy! I've been using a regular pencil sharpener for far too long and i'm glad i've finally got one specifically made for eyeliners/lipliners etc.

  2. I recently tried the Weleda shampoo and it feels great on the scalp! Weleda always gets it right. :)
