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 January’s Birchbox review.
January’s Birchbox Review
Yet again, this month I have to say Wow! what an amazing beautiful box; these boxes themselves are fab. This month Birchbox has teamed up with the fantastic Ohh Deer. This months box is entitled “Stand Tall”.
This January, Birchbox has teamed up with Ohh Deer – the quirky British stationery brand that champions creativity to celebrate all that sets you apart from the crowd. Get ready to kick-start 2018 by embracing what makes you, well, YOU!
Whether that means skipping the hair straighteners in favour of rocking natural waves, bringing your cackling laugh to life with a slick of bright lipstick, or abandoning that gym membership to embrace a hobby you’ll really enjoy. It’s time to rip up the resolution rulebook!
Birchbox has included a full-size Lord & Berry Blusher Crayon inside every January Birchbox. So, whether you’re a fan of bold blush or prefer a more subtle flush, let your true colours shine with this gorgeous, blendable formula. Pat it onto cheeks for a sheer tint or build it up for a more pigmented pop – whatever feels most like you.
Remember, you’re fabulous just the way you are!

Blusher Crayon in Peach or Camelia RRP £6.50

PARLOR BY JEFF CHASTAIN BIRCHBOX EXCLUSIVE!
Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo RRP £16
Firstly, anything that smells of ripe peaches and freshly cut grass is a win in our eyes. Secondly, we think you’re going to love how your hair feels after using this! Lightweight but deeply hydrating, this gentle shampoo doesn’t rely on sulphates or parabens to cleanse and strengthen your hair.
Just massage a small amount through wet hair, lather up, then rinse to leave your strands repaired and moisturised.
Amazing Makeup Remover RRP £5.50
Forget the various lotions and potions that usually assist in the removal of make-up, with this ultra-soft cloth there’s only one thing that you need… water! That’s right, just wet the cloth and massage it over your face to break down impurities and remove all types of make-up.
Give it a spin in the washing machine before your first use, then get started! Bonus: it lasts up to 1,000 washes.
February’s Birchbox Sneaky Peek
A full-size Keeome Silicone buff makeup applicator in every February Birchbox.
Wave goodbye to your makeup sponges – there’s a new way to apply your products!
This innovative make-up applicator makes light work of blending your favourite primer, foundation, blush or highlighter onto your skin with ease and precision.
Plus, unlike a sponge, the silicone surface means that your product doesn’t get soaked up and wasted. Bonus: it couldn’t be easier to clean! Seriously can’t wait to try this!
I can’t fault Birchbox I look forward to each box and have never been disappointed by the contents. The box itself is always fantastic and so useful for many things.
