Birchbox November 2013

Hey girlie's!!!

It's that time again... Birchbox time!!!! Ha ha... I was really looking forward to receiving this months box as this is just my second Birchbox after I unsubscribed from Glossy box, so I'm still getting used to it, I absolutely loved last months box which was my first box and I have to say I love this months box too, woohoo I'm one happy Hayley!!!

Anywhooo onto the little treats I received inside my November Birchbox...

Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara
If lasts months Laura Mercier treat wasn't enough, Birchbox have now thrown in the Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara!!! The mascara claims to be smudge free and lengthening for a wide eyed, fluttery look, sounds fabulous doesn't it? The wand itself is very slim so I think its going to be great to get to those hard to reach lashes and will be great for the lower lashes too. Im super exciting to try the mascara that's for sure, it feels like such a treat so thank you Birchbox. The full size of the mascara retails for £18.50.

Chella Highlighter Pencil 1.4g
I must admit I've never heard of Chella before, but I'm really happy I got their Ivory Lace Highlighter. You can use the highlighter pencil on your brow bone, cheekbones and the inner corners of your eyes but what I particularly like to use the pencil for is on the waterline to give you that natural awakened eye look, I did this straight away after opening my box and loved it, obviously with it being a highlighter your probably not suppose to use it on your waterline but it worked fine on me with no reaction, I do love getting the most out of my products ha ha. The highlighter pencil retails for £15.95.

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Lotion 30ml
Ive heard alot about Molton Brown but I've never tried anything from them but I'm looking forward to giving their newly reformulated body lotion a go, it smells amazing and is great for this time of year, as we all need a nice body moisturiser in the winter months. The full size of the body lotion retails for £18.00.

Weleda Replenishing Oat Shampoo 18ml
Another product I'm super excited to try is the gentle replenishing oat shampoo, the shampoo contains nourishing organic jojoba oil which will smooth, reduce breakage and improve suppleness. I'm really expected good things for the shampoo as I've tried Weleda products in the past and loved them. The full size of the shampoo retails for £8.95.

English Laundry Eau De Parfum 2ml
I must admit I did do abit of a grumpy huff when I saw a perfume sample in my Birchbox, perfume samples do usually annoy me however this one from Christopher Wicks smells gorgeous, its notes include quince, jasmine petals and musk. The full size of the perfume retails from £16.00.

Lifestyle Extra- Pukka Herbs Selection Of Teas
I love the little extras Birchbox throw in, to me it just seems like your getting alot more for your money which is always good. This months lifestyle extra is very appropriate for this time of year as its a selections of Pukka Herbs Tea, I received the three cinnamon tea, perfect for the Autumn/Winter, the gorgeous earl grey tea and the elderberry & echinacea tea, all of which are organic. I'm definitely putting the kettle on in a minute he he. The Pukka Herbs Tea retails for £2.29. 

Beauty Goodie- Birchbox Pencil Sharpener
I was so happy to see this little sharpener in my Birchbox as it's just what I needed. I haven't got a pencil sharpener big enough for my chubby style eyeshadow crayons as I just haven't got round to buying one and its been so frustrating, I'm over the moon now as I can sharpen until my hearts content ha ha.

Overall I'm super happy with the contents of my second Birchbox , every single thing in my box I like and I know I will get use out of everything too.

What did you get in your Birchbox this month girlie's??? I'd love to know.



  1. I got exactly the same, so chuffed with it, same as you its my second since binning off glossybox, the mascara is lovely, no matter how many layers I put on, no clumping. I was trying and trying to get a clump so I dont feel like I need to buy another new mascara but unfortunately I think it's going to be a purchase! !!
