Icons - Birchbox November 2013

This month Birchbox is all about inspirational icons... If you read my post on last months Birchbox you'll know I was extra excited for this months box as they had given a little spoiler that November would include another Laura Mercier product! 

Laura Mercier Body Butter - I've heard nothing but good things about this product so you can imagine the smile on my face when I saw it in my box! I received the Ambre Vanille scent which smells INCREDIBLE and feels amazing on the skin! Other boxes included a Fresh Fig scent but I'm really happy with the one I have. A full sized bottle would cost £26

Weleda Replenishing Oat Shampoo - An 18ml sample bottle targeting for dry and damaged hair, this shampoo contains jojoba oil to smooth hair, reduce breakage and improve suppleness. A full sized bottle would cost £8.95

Chella Highlighter Pencil - This is a really soft, well pigmented champagne tinted highlighter designed to brighten and add glow to your brow bone, cheekbones and inner corners of the eye. This is a full sized product which would cost £15.95

Lila'lli Line Define Fill - A plum coloured waterproof pencil to define eyes and lips. I personally wouldn't use this colour on the eyes, but it works as a nice autumnal lip shade. A full sized product which costs £10

English Laundry perfume sample - My first opinion on this product was that it was a very strange name for a perfume, described as having elegant notes of quince, jasmine petals and musk this scent is not for me. I personally think it smells a bit old lady-esque so this was my least favourite item in the box. A full size would cost £16

As always there were a couple of little extras included in the box. A Lifestyle Extra of a selection of different Pukka Herbs teas, and a Beauty Extra which was a Birchbox Pencil Sharpener.

Overall I wasn't blown away by this Birchbox, the best product was clearly the Laura Mercier cream and I did quite like the highlighter, but nothing else really stood out for me. What do you think of this months box? Let me know in the comments below...

  2. Nice touch with the teas, they are actually very good :-)

    1. I don't actually drink tea, but I will probably pass these along to my sister so they don't go to waste :) x
