I don't like to be to negative on my blog because no one likes a Moany Murtle, but seriously Birchbox? This box was just a little sucky. Don't get me wrong I think this is possibly the cutest design yet and perhaps I set my hopes a little high after seeing other peoples boxes. God knows. Either way this was a dispointing month for me.

Bbrowbar RRP£13.00 
The fullsize apparently retails at £13.00 but you can purchase it here for £6.30. I didn't even bother testing this product as it was way to light and wasn't even a close match unfortunately. I think it is always a little risky when subscription boxes do any products that need to be colour matched.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar RRP £15.00
I've heard people talk about this product a little but it didn't exactly over excite me. To be honest my lipstick usually stays on quite well and if it does come off, I'm okay with re-applying it. Anyway, I still thought I'd test it out and to be completely honest I haven't noticed a huge difference in how my lipstick sits or how long it lasts, it is fairly hydrating but I don't think it does enough to make me want to purchase it again.

NUXE Creme Prodigieuse RRP£21.00
I acutally always tend to enjoy using NUXE products, I think they always do quite nice and fairly affordable products so when I saw this in my box I was happy to see something I'd actually use. The cream is hydrating and I found my make up sits smoothly on top of it, it makes a great cream for an everyday use.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow Illuminator RRP£25.50
Luckily I fake tan on a weekly basis because this product was super dark and I was shocked to see it in my box after selecting "fair"  when I signed up for Birchbox. Anyway, like I said luckily I fake tan weekly and this colour was the perfect shade for me when I'm tanned. I have quickly fallen in love with this product, it has got great coverage whilst still looking really glowy and natural. I will 100% be buying the fullsize of this.

Beauty Protector Protect And Blonde Toning Shampoo RRP£18.50
I love purple shampoo to help maintain my blonde hair so I was excited to try this, however I've managed to get one use out of it and its pretty much gone which kind of sucks. However I did really like using this and it did help tone my hair and I also love that it is paraben free.

I feel like I've really struggled to write this post because I just didn't feel excited to write it. This months Birchbox has made me think about canceling my Birchbox subscription all together. I mean the products I recieved this month werent horrible but the samples were all tiny, the shades wrong and I just don't think there was any effort put into personalising my box. Last month they also sent me the wrong box which I didn't mind because luckily I loved the products but if there going to ask you to tell them your birthday, if your fair or what colour your hair is, then they should make sure the efforts are put in to personalising the boxes. 

I think I'm going to see what next months box holds and then decide whether or not I will continue with Birchbox, I really hope they suprise me with something amazing next month. (Fingers Crossed)



  1. Such a good post babe! I keep debating signing up to one of the monthly boxes but i never know if they'll be worth it or not! Something i'm always worried about is that they wont be personalised like you've pointed out! xx

    1. I think they are really hit and miss! I loved last months but was so disappointed this month unfortunately. xx

  2. I signed up to BirchBox last month, but was slightly dissapointed as I wanted more beauty products, funny that you say you loved it. I did enjoy the products but It wasnt what I wnated. I'm still on the hunt to find the perfect box for me! I tried Love Me Beauty this month and I enjoyed it a lot more but still not 100% what I want!!


    1. I thought last months box was okay because I discovered a few products I loved, but Novembers box wasn't a good one for me.


  3. I'm so glad you are totally honest with your Birchbox review. I think it's better to be honest than give people false hope. For example myself as I've been thinking for a long time about signing up with Birchbox. Look forward to seeing what you get next time round to see if it is worth it.

    1. I totally agree! I was just so disappointed this month and wouldn't want anyone going out and spending their money on something because I said I liked it. Its so hard to write and fake when your truly passionate about something.


  4. I was subscribed to Birchbox for a year. It was very exciting in the beginning, but at the end I just felt that not only I never received the star products, but that I was also getting the same items month after month. The actual design of the box is lovely though!
