December Birchbox 2014
The December Birchbox has to be the best one I've received to date, least of all because it has the cutest collaboration with Sophia Webster, but mainly due to finally being able to try out a product I've been lusting over for months!
The mini sample of Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is just such a product I've been eyeing up for the longest time. I've heard wonderful things about its healing properties and how it's transformed skin that was once thought beyond repair. I've been using this every morning on my red and slightly scarred areas, and I'm starting to notice the difference, so I'm most definitely investing in the full size! One more skincare item in the box was a sample of Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream; soft skin is on the horizon! Age defence at its best, and as I'll be hitting the big 2-8 next year, I'm becoming all too aware of fighting off wrinkles and fine lines.
Makeup samples consisted of the gorgeous Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Smoke that makes smokey and sultry eyes as simple as gliding the stick across your lash line and smudging out. And the coveted Benefit High Beam, hidden in the cutest Christmas cracker, that gives a youthful glow I haven't been able to find in anything else.
Throw in a sample of Electric Hair Electric Hydrate Shampoo, which made my hair feel like silk, a full size bottle of Models Own Nail Polish in Absinthe (I'm channeling my inner Elphaba with this one), rounded off with the cutest Sophia Webster branded purse and we've got one hell of a box this month.
