Birchbox x Pinterest

New Year and New Box with January's Birchbox arriving, and it has a Pinterest theme with a lovely addition of an arty postcards pack. And that wasn't the only bonus item in this months box! We also received a Birchbox #NOfilter compact mirror, that everyone got in their box. 

So they were lovely extras as I do like a little variety in my boxes each month. Birchbox is fab at £10 a month plus p&p and you get some amazing Birchbox points, my favourite part. If you don't know already once you have received your box and tried out your selection of products you then complete surveys which gives you extra Birchbox points each month. Them points can then be used to buy full size or choose from many different items in the Birchbox eshop, which contains some amazing brands. I adore the Skinnydip and This Works range they have at the moment. If you do want to sign up to Birchbox make sure you use my link at the end of the post so you can gain an extra £5 Birchbox points. 

On to the most exciting item in everyone's box this month.....

I was extremely excited that every box contains the new Benefit cosmetics product, They're Real tinted primer! This incredible product is to be applied from root to tip before applying your regular mascara to prep the lashes and give extra definition and volume. It can also be used alone for a soft day time look if wanted. Full size of this product retails for £18.50. 

My bag inside my Birchbox was rather full with other beautiful samples also, I was thrilled to receive the Crabtree and Evelyn hand cream as this is a brand I haven't tried anything from yet. It's full of vitamins and minerals, helping with those dry hands. (Update: I can now confirm this hand cream is incredible, hands feel ace!) Full size of this is £15. 

Inside my Birchbox was a full size Jelly Pong Pong brightening eye pencil worth £14.95. I adore this type of pencil for using in my waterline to create a wide awake bright eye and on the inner corner also. 

Next was a Parlor duo of a moisturising shampoo and conditioner deluxe samples. I do like to keep this sort of thing in my samples drawers for fab minis when travelling. Perfect sizes so as to not take big bulky items in luggage. 

I wasn't excited by the look of the Absolution cleansing water but I will try it out, and too be fair it sounds fab with its ingredients including hazelnut oil and aloe vera. Stay tuned for an empties to see what I think of it. 

Next months Birchbox will contain a debut of Birchboxes brand new and exclusive makeup brand called LOC (a.k.a Love of Color.). Super exciting.
