Birchbox December 2014 Unboxing.

As you can see my bejewelled December Birchbox has arrived. December Birchbox 2014 1

So, lets have a look to see what goodies are inside this month. December Birchbox 2014 2

Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream.  Full price £50.00 for 50ml, this gorgeous sample is 10ml so worth £10.00  – That’s the box nearly paid for.   This is an ultra hydrating lotion infused with hydrolyzed Marine Collagen.  Massage into cleansed skin morning and night.  I don’t know about you, but my skin is starting to scream from dehydration from the central heating and then spells in the cold dry weather, so I am looking forward to trying this one out, not least it has good reports on tinternet.

Next we were asked to choose our own nail polish colour from a selection of four colours and I chose the purple – I would have chosen the red but it had gone.  This is a sparkly nail polish that dry to a velvety matte finish, which is a bit odd and if I don’t like it, I shall just put a top coat on.

This is Models Own Nail Polish in Amethyst, full size £5.00December Birchbox 2014 4

Some shampoo for hubby.  Electric Hair, Electric Hydrate Shampoo.  Full size is 250 ml for £17.50, this tester is 30ml so worth £2.10   It says it helps to repair damage and improve shine with this nourishing, moisture-rich formula.  If nothing else, at least I have a bit of shampoo in for him eh.

This product seems to be talked about in glowing terms, me being my age, I’d not heard of it.

It came in a lovely Christmas cracker from Benefit and its called Highbeam.  Full size is 13ml for £19.50 and I think is about 2ml so its worth approx £2.69  It says its a liquid illuminator which suits all skin tones. You paint a small amount onto cheekbones and brow bones and blend, blend, blend.  I’ve had a little swatch and it has a slight shimmer to it, so it might be quite pretty and add a dewy glow to your skin.

Next was Vasanti Brighten Up.  An Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator, full price £26.00 for 120 ml this was 20 ml so worth £4.33   This is a multi action exfoliator to ensure a renewed, refreshed complexion.  I’ll give that a go. December Birchbox 2014 7

I thought this was an interesting product to try.  Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Smoke, full size £8.00 its just a large pigmented jumbo pencil, but it is a modern take on an eyeshadow and I’ve never tried them, so that could be good fun. December Birchbox 2014 8

And lastly we have a lifestyle sample a small purse from Sophia Webster herself worth £25.00  <– really ???   I don’t think I would be paying £25.00, but then I often think that sort of thing as I am trotting around London watching what people are happily spending serious amounts of money on.  Although I have found a use, its going to be perfect for putting all those store and museum cards in that I don’t want to cram into my purse.

Seven products for a ten pound box, (plus p & p) without the purse the products came to £32.12 and I thought there were some really interesting items to try this month, Birchbox have done it again, its a really good box.
