I was delighted to receive my first Birchbox this morning.  I have heard so many good things about them from my American friends.  It arrived in this lovely little box with pink trim and logo on the front.

Inside the box

First of all I was really pleased with bright pink Birchbox Make-up bag, it is really lovely and a change from the previous Jolie black and white (though I did like the white and gold Jolie December bag), the pink is very girly and it appealed to me straight away.  

The name of the magazine 'Fresh Start' is so apt, a new year, a new name.  brilliant.  

fresh Sugar Rosé Lip Treatment

I can't begin to express how delighted I was to receive this lip treatment - I received this in an international make up swap back in September last year and it is difficult to get over here.  This is an intensive moisturiser for your lips and it contains SPF 15.  This is a miniature but it will last a long time the full size treatment would cost you £15.50 which is quite expensive.  I really recommend it. 

Révérence De Bastien

Unguent for nail and cuticles.  This is a French brand and it is a treatment for your nails and cuticles.  This product really excites me, I can't wait to try it. It is pink in colour and it smells like Raspberries.  YUM.. 

KMS California

This is a volumizing spray which eucalyptus to remove excess oil.  I have particularly fine hair and i'm always on the look out for something to give my hair some extra oomph so looking forward to trying this.  It smells like a hairdressers.  Very fragrant.  I have never heard of KMS California before but I love to try new brands. The full size product would cost you £14.85

Teapigs. dream on

Caffeine free Chamomile tea - I like the name of this however, i'm not a fan of this kind of tea, unfortunately this is no use to me.  I would have preferred the peppermint. 

WEI Royal Ming

I am quite into my skin treatments and the moment and I am also looking forward to trying this firming and hydrating cream by WEI, the full size would cost you £74!  So hopefully the sample will last a long time (which it won't because it is super tiny).  I like the motif on the front it is very pretty.  


I am actually quite impressed with my first Birchbox, apart from the tea, there isn't anything that disappointed me and i'm looking forward to trying everything.   I'd be interested in hearing what variations everyone else received so please feel free to leave me a comment below if you received a Birchbox, or what did you think of mine?

oh ps, all these products are available to buy in the shop and there is free shipping for January
