Birchbox December 2013 First Impressions

I’m sorry its taken me so long to get this review up - but to be honest, the reason it has taken me so long is because I was so underwhelmed by it.

With my previous box subscriptions, I have always expected a ‘special’ selection for Christmas / Valentines day / anniversary boxes and they always delivered. with this box, I really feel let down and that they haven’t captured the holiday spirit with its offerings.

The theme of the box was ‘Winter Wonderland’, with products aimed to help you ‘sparkle and shine’ during the festive period.

The products i received were a perfume sample (Grr) of Glam Lipsy which is ok - a bit musty for my liking, but I hate perfume samples anyway. 50ml Naobay Moisturizing Milk Cleanser which I don’t know too much about and everything on the packaging is in spanish. BeeKind body lotion (which is also another type of product i hate getting samples for) Alima Pure Eyeshadow in Paris, which is quite a nice pearlesque colour, a Twistband - (review here) and a Nail Rock Velvet Manicure in Navy.

The only products in the box which took my interest were the Twistband, which I have already reviewed, and the Nail Rock Velvet Manicure Set.

I will have a review of the Nail Rock Velvet Manicure set up soon!

The reason I subscribe to a box like this is to try new, exciting products that are different to anything I’ve ever seen before. I have a million cleanser and body lotion samples - but I’ve never had a velvet manicure or a hairband that wont kink my hair.

Hopefully next month will be a better one!


  1. I would love to try a beauty box but they are too expensive and the products aren't always great xx

    1. Yeah, Im becoming really disappointed. My January box is on it's way. Im going to see what i think then make the decision of keeping it or cancelling. It is exciting tho, a little surprise each month! xx
