Blogmas Day 2: Birchbox December

Are non-Christmasy posts accepted during Blogmas?

birchbox december

I’ve got my Birchbox a couple of days ago and was super surprised because I didn’t expect it coming that early. However, my excitement kind of disappeared the moment I opened it up..

First of all – the design. It’s absolutely stunning and everything but for December? C’mon, it has to be a joke! I’d greatly appreciate birds and roses for February or March, but for December, no thanks.

Here are my five products for this month:

  • Spectrum Collection Marbleous Black B04 Brush – everyone gets one in their box, I wouldn’t say I’m particularly excited about it, but it’s a brush and I’d probably get a good use out of it;
  • LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick – I opted for the lipstick in shade Cranberry, because I desperately need a good red in my collection, and was not fascinated by the other option – the Pixi lipbalm. I have high hopes for this little guy, so stay tuned for a review!
  • Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo – I’ve never heard of the brand before, which is good, I guess, because I get to try new things!
  • Rituals Foaming Shower Gel – when it comes to my shower gels, I get the first one I see and like the scent of. I’m not particularly picky with them, so it would be really nice to have something ‘special’ to try now.
  • Nip+Fab Kale Fix Moisturizer – I like my current moisturizer, but sometimes I feel like it’s simply not enough, so trying a sample of the Nip+Fab one would be interesting!

Overall, all the products are okay kind of, but definitely not what I was hoping for. I feel like I never have luck with my Birchboxes and I’m going to end my subscription for now. All the products will be used at some point, but I don’t know… maybe I have too many samples already and I can’t appreciate them enough.

Have you tried any of the products?

    The shade of that lippie actually looks really well and definitely more exciting than Pixi lipbalm.

    That brush is actually really useful, so I wouldn’t mind getting it in box. We never buy things that we actually need when it comes to makeup, that’s at least in my case hehe. xx

    The LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick looks perfect for the holiday season! I hope you like it.
    The box design is so pretty but I guess not festive enough for December. πŸ˜›

    I also had Birchbox for a few months but was never entirely impressed with any boxes either so I quickly un-subbed!
    I received the LOC lipstick in a purple shade, I wasn’t impressed with that either ha but I’m looking forward to reading your review on it!
    P.s. I’m not sure if non-Christmas posts are allowed but they are appreciated by me!!! πŸ˜€

    I have been getting the Glossybox’s for about a year now and I have just cancelled my subscription as well, I completely agree that the products just don’t do anything fo me. Some of them are completely random and I would never use, but your Birchbox does look better, the brush will come in handy and the lipstick looks really good.

    I have never tried a Birchbox before, but I am sorry to hear that you haven’t had much luck with them! Can’t wait to read your review for the lipstick:)

    Birchbox can be so hit and miss. They definitely gave me a lot of great travel sized shampoos, but it got old after a while. I switched to Sephora Play! but I’m not sure if that one is available outside of the US.

    The box design is super gorgeous but I agree, not for December..
    I never got the products I was hoping to get from Birchbox, so I unsubscribed because I needed to save but it also gave me time to reflect back on whether I liked it or not (turns out I didn’t LOL)..
    I do like the LOC lippie, what a pretty shade, kind of perfect for the holidays πŸ™‚
