December’s Birchbox haul. Amazing.
Receiving this in the post was like receiving a small early Christmas present, and I was so excited to get stuck in!
Just look at that gorgeous packaging! The box itself reminded me of a fancy lipstick container or perfume box. I loved the way it had a little bag inside like a Christmas present sack – so cute!
With my skin really suffering at the hands of winter right now, a gentle exfoliator is just what was needed. This exfoliator from Amie is lovely and soft, and I’m hoping that one or two uses a week will help to restore my skin to a healthy, happy state.
Bobbi Brown is one of my favourite brands. I love their simple, non-gimmicky style, and I used quite a few of their products on our wedding day. Having just pretty much ran out of my latest mascara (Benefit’s They’re Real), the timing couldn’t have been better. This is only a travel-sized product, but I already love it and will most likely buy the full-sized one once this runs out.
The Porefessional by Benefit is a little beauty miracle. It really does work wonders on my skin, whether as a base for makeup or just on its own. This is just a tiny trial tube, but I’ve added this to my wish list.
I am a liquid eyeliner addict. I have been wearing black eyeliner for as long as I have been wearing makeup, and I usually stick with my trusty Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eyeliner. However, after trying Ciate’s Fierce Flicks eyeliner out on the back of my hand and discovering how completely smudge-proof it is, I was immediately converted. I now wear this everyday and will be running for more once it runs out!
I tried this balm out when I straightened my hair recently for a Christmas lunch, and found that it really did work well in calming frizz and flyaways. It also has a yummy scent, and I love the design on the tube, isn’t it lovely?
Thanks Santa Birchbox!
