Unboxing / What I got - Birchbox UK December 2013

The twinkly lights are up, we're spending time with our nearest and dearest and our calendar is booked with festivities. It feels like a true winter wonderland! 

This is the merriest time of year and we need to get glam to SPARKLE at all our soirees! Today I received my December Birchbox (UK), and here are what in the box.


Natural, organic, recyclable, biodegradable - Naobay's philosophy in producing both environmentally friendly and skincare friendly products runs deep through the company with not a stone unturned. The Milk Facial Cleanser is based on a formulation of olive oil, Shea butter and sweet almond oil. Great for sensitive skin, it provides lasting hydration and restores skin elasticity while removing all traces of make-up and daily impurities. 99% of the ingredients are of natural origin - they strongly believe in stating the exact percentage so customers are 100% informed. 


High performance haircare brand Number 4 is defined by its signature Liquid Complexes which draws on water, a unique delivery system and botanical ingredients to impressive results. The Non Aerosol Hair Spray gives a flexible, strong hold, natural movement and boasts a humidity resistant formula with a shine rich finish. Plus, the packaging is earth-friendly. You can't say fairer than that!


Korres creates shower gels that truly deliver on both skin hydration and divine scents. Wheat proteins create a film layer that maintain the hydration of your skin, so even the driest of skins won’t dry out. Their sleek packaging looks gorgeous in the bathroom too! 


The Nail Glitter pots are a brilliant way to adorn your fingers with a cool disco vibe. Use them to add some must-have sparkle to evening looks or to inject a little shimmer to more classic styles. Let your nails do the talking!

How To Use

Paint your nails with two coats of the coordinating nail polish. Dip your nails into the pot of Nail Glitter and press firmly onto the coloured nails. Allow 15-20 minutes for nails to dry. For more info on how to use, see our GIF tutorial here.


This is a long-lasting Lip and Cheek stain that adjusts to your own chemistry. In other words, it looks different on everyone. Olive butter, avocado butter and wild rose wax soothe and nourish the delicate lip membranes. All the ingredients in Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain have been chosen for their conditioning and moisturizing properties. The delicious pomegranate flavor also acts as an antioxidant.

How To Use

On the lips, the stain awakens color. Use it alone, or layer it over a pencil or under a lip gloss. Layer it over or under Lip Fixation. Use it on the apple of the cheeks. Put on a small dot and blend with brush or fingers. Better to apply on top of moisturizer or Liquid Minerals so it’s easier to blend. Brush mineral powders on top for a glow that seems to come from within.

Fears of wearing the wrong shade are banished forever with this custom colour lip and cheek stain. It adjusts to your skins chemistry to develop and unique and irresistible pink shade to suit you. What’s better is that the ingredients are all natural!
