November Birchbox 

I’m a little bit in love with my November birchbox.
Firstly, this box is the prettiest I’ve received so far! The gorgeous shells on the top definitely makes this box a keeper. November’s birchbox was designed by skinnydip and you could pay extra to recieve an exclusive phone case. I seemed to miss the email so unfortunately I missed out BUT the contents of my birchbox more than made up for it!  I love trying new facial products and I was so thrilled to recieve not one but two this month! I quickly dived into the Ren ‘Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial’ that evening before bed because my skin desperately needed a pick me up. It contains a blend of glycolic and lactic acid to trigger cell renewal while you sleep – creating radiant skin has never been this easy! I use this twice a week and so far love it and the full size has a price tag of £32.

Every day I’ve been using the Delarom ‘Crème Acquaconfort’ which is a rejuvenating day cream. It contains almond, apricot oils and vitamin E to nourish your skin during these harsh winter months. I love that this is so hydrating but doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, it’s a great base for makeup too. The full size product is £34.

The cold weather also messes around with my hands; they become really dry, sore and sometimes bleed. This Cowshed ‘Cow Pat Hand Cream’ has become a bit of a life saver. It’s softening but not greasy and sinks into the skin so quickly. My hands have been very thankful for this full sized treat and as it’s only £8 so I can see myself repurchasing. It also smells like fresh grapefruit oil and coriander to uplift and soothe.
The Number 4 ‘Lumiere d’Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect’ has also been a major favourite! This is amazing for de-tangling as well as strengthening tired strands. I spray this through towel-dried hair before combing and my hair instantly feels much easier to manage. At £20 for the full sized product, I will definitely be repurchasing as it’s made such a difference to my hair.

Lip Liner is a scary thing for me, I rarely use it. However I really like this Lord & Berry ‘Silhouette Neutral Lip Liner’ because it’s translucent. It could not be more subtle and will help prevent bleeding for ANY lipstick shade you desire. The full size is £9 which I think is excellent value considering you can use it with any colour you fancy.

The last thing in my box was this beauty treat: a L.Erickson ‘Grab & Go Ponytail Holder’. This is like any hair tie for me but it’s supposed to be super strong – always handy I guess!

I really love this month’s birchbox and so I can share the skinnydip love too, I have a discount code for skinnydip accessories.
Pop onto their website and use the code BIRCHBOX at the checkout for a cheeky £10 off when you spend £24 or more.

I cannot wait for December’s box, I hope there’s something Christmassy!
