Review: Birchbox UK November 2017

Hi Everyone

I received my November Birchbox last week.  This month Birchbox teamed up with Vogue.    Subscribers got to choose one of two box designs this month – both looked good but I chose the one with gold & black lettering on the front with white background & red drawer.


Birchbox is a monthly subscription box which costs £12.95 (inclusive of p&p) per month and 3, 6 & 12 monthly subscriptions are also available.  Usually five personalised beauty treats are included each month.


This month every subscriber received a Benefit Hoola Bronzer (sample size) and a Birchbox ‘beauty tool’ in their box.   A product  / beauty information booklet and the following three products were also included in my box:


Benefit Hoola Bronzer Sample Size (Full size RRP £24.50) – delighted to see this included as one of my favourite bronzers so versatile, can be used as a bronzer, to contour and perfect as an eyeshadow as well (transition colour especially).  Though only a sample size this will last ages and perfect for travelling;


Bumble and Bumble Prep Primer (Sample Size -50ml) – Full Size is 250ml RRP £18 – have tried a number of Bumble and Bumble hair products before and found them quite good – you spray this one on damp hair, work through, style or states refreshes second day styles.  It does seem to help detangle my hair but as I still need to use all my other hair products as well to get the results I want I do not think I would purchase as some of my current products also help to detangle my hair as well as smoothing and providing a beautiful fragrance.  Not sure about refreshing second day hair as I wash my hair each day anyway as do not feel it is clean otherwise.  A good size, nice to try and will still use but just won’t be purchasing;  

 *SPOILER* December Sneak Peek – states that next month we will get to choose from a classic party red / nicely natural tint Full Size lip product – see photo below.

Happy with this months box as already love three of the items and was good to try  two new products.  Definitely a better box for me this month but still hoping for an even better box in December, always hope the ‘Christmas’ box is a really good one – looks like a good start already with the Full Size lip product – hope good selection of other items as well.


If you are thinking of  subscribing to Birchbox UK – you can get £5 off your first box -(box is normally £10 +£2.95 shipping – you will get for £5 +£2.95 shipping) by clicking  link here and then copy and paste code at checkout to get your discount.    You can also get a FREE Cargo Cosmetics Sunset Beach Blush when you order your November Birchbox  (*photo below),  just add the code BLUSHGIFT at checkout to get free gift.


Look forward to any comments you may have – if you have received this month’s box would love to know what you thought.

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you – enjoy the remainder of the weekend – more posts will be up later today or tomorrow.

Best Wishes Liz x

    Well so much better this month. A nice selection of products that most people would be happy with. I like James Read tan and the bronzer goes well with that. The hand cream is always a winner for me and it’s a quality item. The bumble bumble is a product that I have not tried often so I’m not sure but I’ve heard good things about it. I also really like the design of the box. Susie
