As I’m staying at my mum’s whilst I finish my surgery recovery, the pictures are a little bit different – normality will resume soon but I couldn’t want to share the contents of the November 2014 Birchbox! Last night I had a wonderful dinner with Birchbox to mark the arrival of the November box which is themed around being Cosy at Home – a perfect answer to the newly arrived Autumnal evenings. The November 2014 Birchbox is lovely, with a couple of beautiful products to get very excited about!
There are six products in the Birchbox November 2014 box including a lifestyle product of a chocolate bar. There’s a good mix of products designed to give you a bit of pampering as the evenings become colder and darker. There isn’t a make-up product which is a shame, but the full-sized OPI polish should ease that disappointment. As always, here’s a look at the contents in order of favourites:
I have to start with the Dr Jart+ Pore Refine Recover Primer which I am extremely excited about as I loved the BB Creams and I’m happy to try anything else from the range. This is a full-sized product that apparently performs a multitude of functions such as mattifying, treating, healing and concealing, so I will definitely be putting this through its paces soon so expect a full review. Included in the box is a full-sized product worth £15.95.
I’m currently sporting short red nails due to the Christmas red from Bourjois and I’m really digging the look. Therefore I happily welcome the inclusion of the Coco-Cola Red polish from OPI as not only am I big Coke fan (not a good thing, but there you go) but I also can see myself using this as I love red toes in the winter. This is also full-sized and worth £11.95.
As the stress of the last few weeks has caused skin chaos, I’ve been reaching for my Jane Iredale BB Cream which provides a seriously full yet natural coverage. Included in the November 2014 Birchbox is the Jane Iredale Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner which apparently works as a primer for mascara whilst also providing lashes with a strengthening boost.
When I first cracked open the box last night, I thought the Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Hair Mask was actually a face mask – and regular readers will know how I feel about face masks so I was very excited. As the name suggest, it’s actually a mask for hair and two pots have been included. Full-sized this is £16.
At the table last night it was agreed that everyone loves a bit of Weleda, so the inclusion of the Weleda Lavender Relaxing Body Oil will no doubt be a general crowd-pleaser, especially to warm up cold limbs in the Autumn months. I’m not a huge fan of Lavender as a fragrance which is why this sits so low on the list, but as a soothing scent, you can’t beat it. Full-sized this is £14.95.
The bonus product of a Montezuma’s Mini Bar of chocolate is the perfect final product in what I think is a pretty fabulous box, don’t you? They’ve captured the cosy vibe perfectly with the contents and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in. If you’ve never tried a Birchbox before and like the look of this one, I have a fabulous promotional code for you so you can get all the above for a fiver! Just use code BBXCosy when you subscribe here – link.
I so hope I get the same box as you!! BB seem as if they really have upped their game recently- had some cracking boxes. Can’t wait to see what they come up with for the December box
I couldn’t agree more! They’ve managed to make their boxes fresh and exciting again which is a tricky thing to achieve; I’ve been really impressed with the majority of their boxes over the past few months. Fingers crossed you get the same box as me! I have it on good authority that the December box is pretty exciting too 😉 xx
The promo code you have given doesn’t seem to be working. Is there a set time to use the code? I was really looking forward to trying Dr Jart. Many thanks in advance! Emma
So sorry it isn’t working! The people who can help me won’t be available until Monday, but I’ll get in touch and hopefully get it sorted ASAP. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll reply as soon as the promo code is fixed xx
