January 2019 Birchbox // Shake Your Pom Poms!

15 January 2019
Good morning readers and Happy 2019! We made it. With a New Year comes a brand new Birchbox and this months box is all about spreading cheer and introducing some fresh new products into your collection. Let's forget the grey weather as this months box has been specially designed to make even the gloomiest of days feel more vibrant. 2019 - let's do this!

First up, we have CLÉ Cosmetics and their Essence Moonlighter Cushion in Apricot Tinge. There was a choice of two, the other being in the shade Copper Rose. Infused with luminescent pearl powder, this innovative highlighter delivers a beautiful gleam across your skin. Plus, it has an amazing cooling sensation when applied which is so cool to me! The powder comes with an applicator puff, which I probably wouldn't use, as I'm more of a brush type of girl; however since it is a cushion product the puff might work better! All you need to do is smooth the product onto your cheekbones, down your nose and beneath your brows for an instant radiant lift. There's a faint scent that is a little strong but nothing overpowering and definitely wouldn't make you want to not use it. The CLÉ Cosmetics Essence Moonlighter Cushion's retail for £22.00 and did I mention that this was one of three full-sized products in this months box?!

Next, we have Dr. Botanicals Cleansing Bar in Pomegranate. This also comes in 2 other scents which are Superfood or Cocoa & Coconut (which sounds incredible...) This huge cleansing bar is gentle enough to use on your face as well as your body. Formulated with 98% natural ingredients, it will cleanse, exfoliate and restore your natural glow. To use just lather up using your hands, massage in and rinse clean to reveal a naturally radiant complexion. The Dr. Botanicals Cleansing Bar retails for £5.90 which is an absolute steal for the size of it and is the second product that comes in this months box that is full-size!

The third product in this months box is a 4+ star review item from Philip Kingsley. The Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo gives you strong yet shiny hair with ease. At first when I saw this I was a little confused as my hair has been pretty good as of late and I've not had any flakiness (thank the heavens!) however, there will be a time when the flakes come back to haunt me...This soothing formula gently cleanses the skin on your head to leave it soft and healthy. Simply massage thoroughly into your scalp then rinse clean and voila! Goodbye flakes! The Philip Kingsley Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo retails for £24.00 and has some amazing reviews online so be sure to check them out before purchasing!

Another full-sized product this time from the brand Afterspa with their Facial Micro Scrubber! I'm such a sucker for facial cleansers and cloths so when I saw this in my Birchbox this month I was very excited! This dual-texture facial tool helps to remove the dirt, oil and impurities away from your skin that your hands simply wouldn't be able to. Apply your favourite cleanser then work the damp cloth over your skin. Rinse clean and remember to hang it out to dry once you're finished! It's all well and good using a great cleanser with your hands but we all know that when it comes to washing your face, your cleansers always work better with a sidekick. The Afterspa Facial Micro Scrubber retails for £7.00.

Purchase Afterspa here! (It's down to £6.00 at the moment!)

The next product is from a brand I'm pretty sure I've not heard of before so let me know in the comments if you have! Doucce Punk Volume Mascara is another 4+ star rated review item that promises a look larger than life? Um, sign me up! I don't know about you guys but I adoreeeeee mascaras and I always end up buying so many and it's when I saw this I was like, okaaaaaay another to add to my collection. The wand is just as large as the claims, which I love! the brush feathers both large and small bristles to help you separate and coat every lash for mega volume that lasts(? we shall see) To get the most out of this product it's recommended to shimmy the brush back and forth when applying for extra impact. The Doucce Punk Volume Mascara retails for £18.00.

Last but not least is one of the cutest little surprises. Birchbox decided to throw in something extra which are the Pom Pom Hair Ties and these are just super damn cute, okay? I'm not 100% sure whether these will last in my hair as my hair is super thick and long but I will definitely be trying them out! Perfect for ponytails, braids and top knots (not so much for me...*sadface*) Inspired by this months box theme, these pom pom-topped hair ties add a colourful finishing touch to whatever hairstyle you decide to rock. One tie is a gorgeous bright pink and the other is a soft baby pink. Unfortunately, you can't purchase the hair ties on the Birchbox website as they we're an exclusive ~lil extra~ but I'm sure you could find very similar hair ties anywhere on the internet!

Don't forget that with the link below you can get your very own Birchbox for £5.00 off your first box!
