Birchbox X Vogue Unboxing November 2017

This month's Birchbox is in collaboration with Vogue - so exciting! As such, the products which have been chosen for the boxes this month are taken from the Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame. Not only do you receive 5 beauty products, there is also a complimentary voucher for 6 free issues of Vogue magazine, not bad at all!




The first product is one that everybody has received in their Birchboxes this month and is also the one which I'm most excited about - Benefit Hoola. I've wanted this product for so long, and I don't know why I haven't gone out and bought it yet but I'm so so excited to give it a go. It's a raved about product and almost everyone loves it so I'm looking forward to finding out why that is!




The next product in my box is the Percy and Reed No Oil Oil. I've used this product before and I really loved what it did for my hair, not to mention how much I love the scent of Percy and Reed's products.




I also received the James Read Overnight Tan Sleep Mask Tan Face. Now I'll admit, this is the one product I've received in my box that I'm not 100% feeling. I'm not a massive 'tan' person and the thought of using a tan product on my face scares me slightly in case I end up looking like a Oompa Loompa! I personally would have preferred to have received the Clarins Hand Cream instead but, beggars can't be choosers.




The Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is another product in my Birchbox this month. I actually haven't heard of this product before, but it looks pretty good. The fact that it's a fast drying is an absolute winner, haven't got time to be waiting around for nail polish/top coats to dry!




Last but not least is a Birchbox exclusive, and is a Birchbox own branded Brush Cleaner. I can't stress how important it is to clean your brushes after you've used them, and having a brush cleaner makes doing a laborious job that bit more easier, trust me!




I also want to give the actual box itself a little mention too. Half way through last month I received an email from Birchbox asking me to pick from two Vogue themed box designs and I picked the pink design - I absolutely love it! I feel like this is one box I don't want to get rid of and keep as a momento!

November Beauty Favourites



There's so many products which I've been loving at the moment, and I just had to share them with you!




The first product in my November favourites is the Origins 'Never A Dull Moment' Facial Polish. I had been looking to try a new exfoliant for my face but just didn't know what product to try out. Through looking at the Boots websites and numerous reviews, I came to choose the Origins one. I'm a fan of Origins skincare as it is, and 'Never A Dull Moment' has become a film favourite for me! I love the fruity smell of it and I just love the colour of the packaging too!




I've also been loving the OGX Brazilian Keratin Smooth Shampoo. This shampoo smells amazing because it contains Cocoa Butter, and thanks to the avocado and coconut oil and keratin proteins it's made my hair feel super smooth and soft.




During my evening skincare routine lately, I've been using the LancĂ´me Absolue Premium Bx moisturiser. I received this in the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar last year, and I can honestly say that this is one of the best moisturiser's I've ever used! It's quite pricey, however the quality is brilliant and I've noticed a difference in my skin since using it.




I've included the YSL Black Opium perfume in my November favourites, however it's been a year long favourite for me. The scent of this is just so refreshing and I have received so many compliments from people when I wear it, I've also found that it's one of the most long wearing fragrances too.




I suffer with extremely dry skin on my lower legs which can cause them to become very itchy. To combat this, I've been using the Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Oil on my legs as soon as I step out of the bath or shower. It's honestly worked miracles on me, my legs are nowhere near as itchy as they were and feel so much more softer and moisturised.




Whilst on the topic of dry skin, I've also been using the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter. This body lotion not only makes you smell great, but it's also super moisturising and really nourishes my skin. It's been a favourite of mine for a while but I've recently fallen in love with it all over again.




For Christmas last year, I received the Sugar Plum Lip Scrub in a Lush gift set. I've recently started using it and I cannot believe I hadn't used a lip scrub before! It makes my lips feel super soft and smooth and is especially great if you wear lipstick and you don't want the lipstick getting stuck in any dry skin on your lips.




Last but not least in my November favourites is the L'Oreal Volume Couture Mascara. This is the only mascara I've ever used which gives my lashes the volume and length I desire! I'm so so obsessed with this and the bets bit is that it doesn't break the bank!


Let me know what your favourite beauty items are at the moment?
