Birchbox Unboxing - January 2016

I was struggling with what to post today, then a knock on the door brought me my Birchbox, so I figured why not do a quick unboxing for you lovely people. 

 The first thing I noticed is the box is adorable. One the lid it says “Best Year Ever” with a lot of pictures of cute and inspirational things on it. Great looking box to start the year.
Inside the box there are 6 items, most of which are simple size. My immediate reaction is, I’m not impressed. I normally love my BirchBox it’s one of the boxes I really look forward to getting but this month…. The highlight is the box itself.

Inside the box you get:

Benefit – They’re Real Tinted Primer; I will give this a try, but as a whole I think lash primers are a complete waste of money.

Jelly Pong Pong – Lighten Up Brightener + Waterliner; I have never met a Jelly Pong Pong product I’ve liked so; I think I’m just going to pass this along. At the end of the day, it’s nude eyeliner…. Nothing to write home about.

Crabtree & Evelyn – Le Source Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy; It’s winter, it’s a hand cream, I’ll use it. It seems to sink in quickly and didn’t leave my hands sticky like some hand creams do. Not in love with the smell, but it’s not overly offensive.

Parlor – Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner; I HATE shampoo samples, also as much as I hate foil package samples and this managed tick both boxes and because of that it will be going straight in the bin.

Absolution- L’Eau Soir et Matin; It appears to be a cleansing water. I’m not wowed, but it is something I will use.

Birchbox – Compact Mirror; It’s cute. I like the “#NoFilter” on the front, the mirror itself is decent. It’s probably the best item in the box.

Like I said at the start this isn’t the best box I’ve received from them, but next month is Valentine’s day and I can’t wait to see the box they do for that. What subscription boxes do you guys get? Let me know in the comments below... I'm always looking to feed my addiction :-)  and as always stay and play safe.
