Birchbox x Vogue aka November Birchbox

So, I have been subscribed to Birchbox since March and every time I receive a box I totally plan on blogging about it but then I always forget. I want this bad habit to stop so here it is, my first Birchbox review.


For this month Birchbox has teamed up with Vogue to let them pick the best of the best beauty products, so we have can try them out. For anyone who doesn’t know what Birchbox is, here is the link to their website, but basically it’s an online service where you can subscribe and they send you a box of 5 or six samples to try out all based on your personal needs. I like that I get to try out brand I have not heard of before or products that I have wanted to try out, but didn’t want to spend the money on them.

This box has five products inside and I am genuinely excited to try them all out.  So the first product is the well known, Benefit Hoola Bronzer. I’m almost sure that everyone has heard of this bronzer before and almost everyone has it too, but with this month’s box everyone gets a free sample of it. ( I have a sample of this product from before so happy to have another one that again keeps me from spending money on the full one, haha ).


Next item I got is the Percy and Reed Smooth, Sealed and Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil. ( what a long name! ). I have previously received a Percy and Reed product before and I was quite happy with it, so I actually have high expectation of this one. It’s supposed to nourish your hair, give it volume and protect from heat. Sounds very promising.

I have never tried any Clarins product before to my shame, so I’m happy to get the chance now with the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. It’ supposed to be the best hand cream out there according to Vogue and it really is good. Of course I had to try it out straight away and I can confirm it is not greasy, sinks in fast and also smells sooo good, like an expensive hand cream would.


Top coats are a a girl’s best friend when it comes to painting our nails as it saves us a lot of time and to be honest I’m more motivated to do my nail if I don’t have to wait around for hours for them to dry. So this next item is a top coat nail polish form Seche Vite, and it claims to be a dry fast top coat that has a unique formula that penetrates through your nail polish and makes it solid and long lasting ( according to the leaflet that came with the box ).  Can’t even tell you how excited I am to give this a try!

And lastly I got a brush cleaner tool. I tend to clean my brushes quite regularly even if it’s not my fave chores so, hoping this will make it a better experience. I have been wanting to get a tool like this for ages, so now I finally have it. Here’s to cleaning your brushes regularly!

So that is everything I have recieved in November’s Birchbox, I hope you liked this little review\ first impression of the products.
