What Is Birchbox?
Now I know some of you are probably now sitting there thinking to yourself, “what the fuck is Birchbox?” well I’m going to tell you. For the cost of £12.95 a month I receive another fabulous reusable little box. I have to say at this point the boxes are very well made and furthermore they act like a little drawer. In addition these boxes are very sturdy and very useful – I use mine for all sorts of things. The design is different every month too. Now inside the box, you will find a selection of good size samples of beauty products, sometimes a full-size one and sometimes a free gift, for example, a makeup brush etc. Now we all love free things don’t we – well I know I do. And finally, in addition, to the products you receive a guide as to what the products are and consequently other details about them. So sit back, relax and read my December’s Birchbox review.
December’s Birchbox Review
First of all, this month I have to say Wow! what an amazing beautiful box; definitely the prettiest so far. This month Birchbox has teamed up with the fantastic Matthew Williamson. This months box is entitled “Life’s Little Treasures”.
If there’s one month to revel in a spot of luxury it has to be December, which is why Birchbox has teamed up with British fashion designer, Matthew Williamson. A true icon of luxe design, they’ve taken inspiration from his exquisite Treasure Garden print for this month’s beautiful box design and their theme – Life’s Little Treasures.
Whether you use your selection of personalised beauty treats during a cosy pamper night at home or to get ready for the ultimate Christmas party, they’ll encourage you to add some decadence to your everyday. Yess, December is all about treating yourself and they’ve helped you get started with a FULL-SIZE lip product and a FULL-SIZE Spectrum Collections make-up brush inside every box. Trust me, you’re worth it!
