Birchbox January 2018 Unboxing

The beginning of a new month can only mean one thing - the arrival of this month's Birchbox! January's Birchbox is a collaboration with stationary brand 'Ohh Deer', with the ethos of this month's box being 'Stand Tall' and to embrace who you are! Pretty good advice if you ask me!

The first product I received in my box this month is the Lord & Berry Blusher Crayon in the shade 'Camelia'. This is a full sized product which everyone will have received in their boxes this month in one of two shades - Peach or Camelia. I have to admit, I'm not really a blush wearer but if I ever feel adventurous I may give it a go! It looks fairly easy to use, you just need to pencil on a little bit of the blusher to your cheeks and blend with your fingers.

The second product in my Birchbox is the Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade 'Charcoal'. A pencil eyeliner is a staple in my makeup bag so I was very pleased to see this! It's something a bit different too, as the shade isn't black but charcoal instead. This eyeliner is also said to be waterproof and shouldn't smudge so I'll be very interested to see if it does have a good staying power throughout the day.

Next up is the Thermaliv Night Cream. Thermaliv isn't a brand which I've heard of before so I'm intrigued to find out what this night cream is like. It looks like it's picked with lots of good stuff to leave your skin looking amazing by the morning!

The next product is one which I'm massively excited about! For months I've been wanting the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to turn up in one of my Birchboxes, and it's never happened - until now! This is a spray that not only is a dry shampoo, but it texturises your hair too. What I love about this product is that you don't get left with the white powder residue in your hair, unlike most other dry shampoo's.

Last but not least, I received the Afterspa Amazing Makeup Remover. This is such an intriguing product and seems like a bit of a revelation! All you need to do with this cloth is to soak it in some water and then wipe your face with it, and it removes your makeup! I'm amazed that it's as simple as that and is so effective! I think I'm going to write a review on this product and let you all know how I get on with using it! 

Aside from the products which are in the box, I have to say that the actual design of this month's box is absolutely beautiful, I love the floral detail with the flamingoes - it's just so cute! I also received some Ohh Deer designed stickers which will be perfect for my stationary collection, and there is a 20% discount code to use on Ohh Deer's website!
