I always dip in and out of beauty subscription boxes now because I find I get all sampled out, and I end up with similar samples month on month, but as soon as Birchbox do something cute with their 'box' I am there and trying to be first in line
December comes in the shape of another Birchbag! This time a glitzy and glam clutch to help you at your christmas parties and possibly New Years also
Now, one thing I dislike about this clutch is the fact the green part and the whole back to the clutch is velvet. OhmygoodnessVelvetGivesMeTheHeebieJeebiesandbkhifbsobnsabaib
But that can't be helped! I shall have to grin and bear it whenever I want to use this little cutie
All samples for this month came packed into this clutch and amongst it all was a Model Co matte lippie, a Ciate nail polish in a nice lavender shade, an Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream, Skin & Co Sicilian Body Gel, Roloxin Life Instant Skin Smoothing Masque and the best for last, a Benefit They're Real Liner & Puff Off! Duo pack!
The Benefit push up liner is perfect for your cat-eye party look, whilst the Puff Off! is then going to best when nursing your hangover. I am yet to use Puff Off! so I am quite excited to be able to sample it now through Birchbox
The lipstick also excites me, because you can never have too many lipsticks!
However, I am a bit disappointed with everything else. I don't really paint my nails ever so I will never use this. I don't yet use anti-ageing products so not sure if I will use the Elemis cream (even though I love Elemis products), and I never use body gel in the shower either. I may end up using this in my baths though because I like the sound of zesty Sicilian ingredients inside
I think it is time for me to give up getting beauty subscriptions as I really am all sampled out and have loads of stuff I will never use
Do you get subscription boxes?
