The January 2019 Birchbox has arrived with a bang! It’s an exciting little collection of goodies with some really appealing products – this is definitely the best Birchbox I’ve seen for a while. It’s designed to lift spirits and help us welcome in the new year, which is achieved with the bright, fun box and great contents.
There are six products included in the Birchbox January 2019 contents, with a very good mix across all the usual types, such as skincare, make-up, body stuff, accessories, etc. I really like it all and I’m thoroughly impressed; such a great start to the year for Birchbox!
The “showstopper” piece is likely to be the Cle Cosmetics Essence Moonlighting Cushion, which is a very pretty, full-sized cushion highlighter available in two shades. I looove the scent of the Dr. Botanicals Cleansing Bar which will shortly be making its way onto my bathroom sink to become the resident hand soap. There’s also a good sized Becca First Light Priming Filter, which I understand has a solid cult following due to its ability to provide some serious, yet natural, glow.
The Afterspa Facial Micro Scrubber feels like it should be a nice and gentle way of lightly exfoliating skin, without changing up your routine. I love Philip Kingsley but the reason the Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo is so low on my list is because I think shampoos and conditioners should always come in pairs, but that’s just me and my little bugbear! FInally, there’s a duo of super cute Birchbox Pom Pom Hair Ties which will definitely come in handy now I’m growing my hair out again. There really isn’t anything I don’t like in this collection and I really love both the mix of products and the products themselves. The Birchbox January 2019 box is available now here – link.
I seem to be seeing this brand everywhere! I’ve been wanting to try this for probably a year now (I love trying out new things), yet I never do. I know that the price is not very high, but do you reckon it is worth it for the number of products you get and the quality associated with it?
The annoying thing about beauty boxes is the overall inconsistency, because one month they can be absolutely amazing and packed full of great products, then the following month they can be the exact opposite! The price point is a good thing to keep in mind as if you work it out over the year then it still works out good value. However, if you can afford to spend a bit more then the more luxury boxes like Look Incredible (mostly make-up), Cohorted (mostly make-up) and Mintd (mostly skincare) are better investments, but they are a lot more expensive xx
