BirchBox December Edition : First Thoughts

I'm Sorry! I've been really ill past couple of weeks so haven't been able to take my own photos so had to take the logo off Google!


I think it's time my BirchBox affair comes to an end. They have just have been awful lately and I think I can use the money on something better! I just feel fobbed off with the products either repeats or really not for my skin type.    

The Ultimate Party Kit - RRP £41
This consists of two of Benefits products. They're Real Push-Up Liner & Puff Off which is an under eye gel. Now I'm going to be honest I will be passing the eyeliner on to someone else. I have had this in the full size and travel size and I hate it! I just can't get a nice line its always too thick and chunky so someone else might get on with it better. Puff Off claims to be an instant eye gel to help smooth the look of puffy eyes, it's my works xmas party next week so can try it out then! First impressions are it feels lovely on the back of my hand really cooling but it seems to be heavily scented which I don't know how my eyes will handle it, Does smell nice though very florally reminds me of rosewater or something. 


Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminzer Gel - £8.95
Love hate relationship with this brand, this product looks like a nail polish and I am not a fan of this type of highlighter to begin with. This product doesn't seem to look pretty on the back of my hand, and doesn't seem to be full of chunky glitter. This might just change my mind on liquid highlights. 


Ciate London Pain Pot  - £9
Colour : Mineral Love
Everyone knows Ciate's nail polishes are on point and this is a beautiful colour. It is the perfect baby pink with a ton of gold glitter, making it the best textured nail polish for the party season. 

When Travelmate Sheet Mask - £25
Shock horror. I have never used a sheet mask before! I am having a serious pregnancy hormonal break out lately

Rituals T'ai Chi Foaming Shower Gel - £8.50
This smells beautiful!! It smells of White Lotus and Yi Yi Ren. I have no idea what Yi Yi Ren is but after a quick Google search it appears to be an organic seed which is widely used in Chinese medicine. I haven't even used it yet but can't wait to take this up to Scotland with me as it is under the 100ml! Happy days!

L.Erickson Grab & Go Ponytail Holder - £11.50
It's a hairband. Enough said.
