♡ Birchbox Unboxing // December 2017 // Collab with Matthew Williamson ♡

09 December 2017
GUYS!! It's that time of the month (no, not that time of the month) when my fave subscription box arrives on my doorstep. That's right the Birchbox December box is here and I can't WAIT to share this with you all.

If you're new here or just new to Birchbox in general, Birchbox is a website that sells beauty products of all sorts and also owns one of the most favourable subscription boxes in the UK. Every month for £12 you receive a box full of beauty treats from a range of brands and each month there is a new collab and new products tailored to you, your skin type, hair type etc.

As you can see above this months box is beyond gorgeous! I absolutely adore the the design they have gone with this month with designer Matthew Williamson and if this festive, floral, bejewelled box doesn't scream Christmas and Glits I don't know what does.

Each month you will receive 5 products one being a full sized product and the rest as luxury samples, however in this December box there was in fact three full sized products and lemme tell you, I was/am over the moon with the products!

Life's Little Treasures is the theme for this months box and the treasures you receive are as follows:

LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Color Me Confident // RRP £6.50*
I chose this product over the Pixie lip tint as every month we get to decide what it is we want in our boxes for at least one of the items, I went for this punchy cranberry shade as it just screams party season, festivities and Christmas. If there's ever going to be a time I wear a red lip it's going to be Christmas! The formula for this lipstick is said to last all night long and is buttery and moisturising.
I'm looking so forward to testing this out to really see if it has that staying power potential.

Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Foaming Shower Gel // RRP £4.50*
This gel just sounds amazing, a gel that transforms into a luxurious foam on contact with water, infused with soothing sweet almond oil and fragrant Indian rose which is said to be inspired by ancient beauty rituals. Leaving the skin noticeably softer, clean and a beautiful scent that lingers post-shower.

Kelbelo Clarifying Shampoo // RRP £13.95*
This shampoo is like a real life reset button. Detoxifying your hair from root to deep, treating your hair to a fresh new start. REBORN BABY. It's recommended to use this product only once or twice a month to wash away product build-up and purify your scalp for a deep down clean.

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser // RRP £14.95*
Green juices and kale salads aren't exactly things that we gravitate towards over the festive season, I can think of many other things I'd rather be munching down on...pigs in blankets amirite? BUT that doesn't mean your skin can't enjoy the benefits. A superfood blend of kale, watercress, aloe vera and almond oil this comforting lotion delivers a healthy burst of vitamins and moisture to soothe and rejuvenate the skin.

Spectrum Collections B04 Angled Blender Brush // £4.99*
Seeing that this product was included in this months box was honestly what I was most excited about! A full sized brush from Spectrum, my first ever Spectrum brush, and I've heard so many great things about these brushes! This brush is an essential tool for the festive season to create the perfect Christmas Day/Night look. It's the perfect size and shape to fit the contours of your eyes and with synthetic bristles it can be used with powders and cream shadows to shade and define.

Honestly, I'm yet to review these items and do a final conclusion to how they all fair up and I can't wait. I hope you all enjoyed this post, it was so much fun to write and to really look at the products again in full detail.
