Birch box: November!

Hii! So I’ve just received my 2nd birch box (Novembers) and I was really excited about this one as they did a collaboration with skinny Dip (who are amazing). With this one you could opt to receive a phone case for an extra £4 (rrp £10), but I missed that memo so didn’t receive one, but nevertheless I was still really excited.

Then i received the box and was slightly disappointed 😦 As only the nail wraps and lip pencil really caught my eye (and the £10 off skinny Dip voucher).

    First up is the Rosa – ThumbsUp Nail Wraps These got me excited as i love anything nail art wise 🙂 They’re not very autumny, so i probably wont use them until spring/summer but they do look super cute. (rrp £6.99)
  Lord and Berry Neutral Lip liner At the moment i don’t wear a lot of lipstick, but i am hoping to change this, so it will come in handy eventually (rrp £9) .

  Beauty Protector Hand and body moisturizer… I couldn’t find the link for this, i also haven’t used it yet but it does smell really good.. i think it will probably be one of those that i just forget about though.
  Delarom Crème Acquaconfort… I have no idea what this is for (I know, i am so uninformative its unbelievable), it does smell quite nice, it apparently boosts your skins energy :/ and also contains Vitamins A, C and E. (rrp £34)

Wake wonderful Night time facial… this claims to refine and brighten skin, so you put it on before your moisturizer before you go to sleep and you wake up with your skin all nice and fresh. I did try this one, you do get a slight tingly feeling but that’s all good and normal. (rrp £32)

 And lastly is Number 4 Lumiere d’Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect… Again i have yet to try this but its meant to strengthen, de-tangle and repair your hair (ooo that last bit rhymed a bit haha) its also 100% Vegan, Gluten, sulphate and paraben free 🙂 So hopefully this is another that does what it claims to (rrp £20)

So overall i was slightly dissapointed with this months box, some other people got a few different bits to me that i probably would have preferred and then i would of more than likely been a bit happier, and also the fact that it was a collab with Skinny Dip yet except from the phone case and box design there wasn’t really much else going on Skinny Dip wise, so that made me slightly dissapointed. I think i shall see what Decembers box brings then see what other Beauty subscription boxes there are.

Have you received Novembers Birchbox? What are your thoughts?

  1. I got exactly the same items as you in my box which arrived today, I’m also disappointed. I think the promotional images were misleading on their social media. I agree about other people getting better items in this months box! It’s a shame really. I think I’ll stop my subscription and see what other beauty boxes are available 🙂

    1. The pictures were misleading, after seeing them I was looking forward to it, then to only have two/three things that were pictured wasn’t good 😦 I think I might also do the same and see what other boxes there are… This months glossybox looked good so may try that one x

    1. I’m hoping it’s just a one off with it being disappointing , if not then I’ll probably be canceling 😦 I’ve noticed a lot of other boxes that look a lot better for around the same price x
