Whats in My January Birchbox?

January has been another fun and busy month for me. So far I’ve had lots of family time, sold a lot of vintage and had a mini break away. I’ve not blogged much so far as I’ve been focussing on other things. I do have a lot to share with you over the next few weeks and one of those things is the latest offering from Birchbox. I’ve now been reviewing the monthly beauty boxes on the blog for two whole years! In that time I’ve tried so many fabulous new products and this month is no exception.

Birchbox January 2016
This months box was a collaboration with Pinterest and I loved the pretty box, I use them to store make-up and vintage jewellery so I always like it when the boxes ae interesting.

Birchbox January 2016 Contents
The contents of the box are equally lovely and I was really happy with the mix of products. The box came with a handful of pretty illustrated postcards with a new year theme, which I just love. I’m planning on putting some of them up in my blog office for a little inspiration.

Birchbox January 2016 Postcards
The first product in my box is the Benefit They’re Real Tinted Primer. I’m already a huge fan of Benefit mascaras and the They’re Real has been my top choice for a very long time. This primer is mink coloured and goes on in one coat under your normal mascara, for show-stopping voluminous lashes. I absolutely love it! the full-sized product costs £18.50 and the samples are always a pretty generous size.

Birch box January 2016 Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up Brightener
The next product is a multi tasking brightening pencil. The Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up Brightener is a great all round product. It’s perfect for using in the waterline for brighter eyes or to highlight your eyebrows. I love the soft bendable formula and will definitely be using this one more. This was a full site product which usually costs £14.95

Birchbox January 2016 - Cowshed Gorgeous Cow Body lotion
At this time of year I always get through loads of body lotion, so I was pleased to get a new one to try with this months box. The Cowshed Gorgeous Cow Blissful Body Lotion has a yummy spicy recent, perfect for this time of year. A littles goes a long way, so this generous sized sample will definitely last me a while. The full-sized product costs £20.

Birchbox January 2016 Parlour by Jeff Chastain Hair Products
The box included two samples from Parlor, a brand I’ve never tried before. This shampoo and conditioner are perfect for strengthening and repairing lacklustre hair. The scent of Ripe Peach and Freshly cut grass is simply divine and both products made my hair very happy. The full-sized products are £16 each.

Birch box January 2016 Absolution Cleansing Water
I love cleansing waters for removing my make-up when I’m in a rush. Although it has a clear watery consistency, The Absolution L’Eau Soir et Martin is packed with fabulous nourishing ingredients like hazelnut oil and aloe vera to keep your skin looking and feeling lovely. The full-sized product costs £27

Birch box January 2016 #NoFilter mirror
The bonus product in the box was this cute #NoFilter hand mirror, perfect for tucking into your handbag.

I was really happy with everything in the box this month and loved that every product was a high-end sample, no gap fillers here.
