|December Birchbox: Put On Your Party Shoes*|
For December the theme is putting on those party shoes and they have collaborated with accessories designer Sophia Webster. I have to admit until today I had never heard of Sophia Webster, but the jewels on the box itself are incredibly pretty.
Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream | Full size: £50
Eyeko Fat Stick | £8
Models Own Nail Polish | £5
Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo | Full size: £17.50
Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil | Full size: £16.50
Benefit Christmas Cracker - Mini High Beam | Full size: 19.50
Sophia Webster Purse | £25
Honestly I'm not blown away, but there are a few things that I'm particularly excited about which totally make the box for me. The Trilogy Rosehip Oil is something I've wanted to try for the longest time because I've heard such incredible things, so this will be going straight into my skin care box and I'm looking forward to trying it tonight. The second product I'm excited about is the mini Benefit High Beam because anything that promises a little illumination in the winter time has my attention immediately.
I'll be finding someone to pass the Eyeko Fat Stick on to because whatever look I could manage to create with a black eye crayon wouldn't be a good one, and I'm pretty happy with my current moisturisers so the Eslor Collagen Day Cream will be on its way to a better home soon too.
The Models Own nail polish is a little strange, but I think I like it. It's almost a matte glitter, which doesn't make sense at all but I can't think of another way to describe it. The velvet lid kind of creeps me out though, the texture makes me shudder! And finally the Sophia Webster purse is really sweet. Leopard print isn't usually my thing but I quite like it here. The material or whatever it was packaged in has given it a really strong, unpleasant smell though so I'm hoping that will fade pretty quickly so I can get some use out of it - it'll be perfect for carrying a few cards and a little bit of cash very compactly.
What do you think of the box this month?
