Somehow, it is that time of the month again. Even though it barely feels like last week I was writing about the November Birchbox, the December Edition popped through my door. This festive months offering is in collaboration with the shoe designer Sophia Webster. I hate to admit I haven't heard of Sophia Webster, but then unless she sold mascara I doubt I would of. Decembers box is designed for festive parties and pretty shoes, hence the Sophia Webster collaboration I'm guessing, so I was rather keen to see what came instead this jewel covered box...
Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream Full size: £50 | Always something I find odd to put in beauty boxes aimed at younger people, but then I do like a good anti ageing product. And trying a new brand that I've not heard off is another plus.
Eyeko Fat Stick £8 | I used to love their felt tip liner so I was rather excited to see this pencil pop out. The fatness of this looks like it would be ideal for a smokey eye.
Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo Full size: £17.50 | I'm not overly excited by this, but shampoo is shampoo. And no doubt this will come in handy at some point.
Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil Full size: £16.50 | This was worth it purely for the smell, and even better that I have fallen in love with this little skincare delight already.
Benefit Christmas Cracker - Mini High Beam Full size: 19.50 | This would be very good if I didn't already own the full size. Maybe I can use this as someones stocking filler...or is that too cheeky?!
Sophia Webster Purse £10 | Leopard isn't really my thing, but then I was in need of a 'going out' purse to hold my cards etc so I wasn't going to turn my nose up at this, and no doubt will be the 'going out' purse I use for the next five years. Not that I did that with my last one or anything...
Overall I think a box with Eyeko, Models Own and Benefit is a pretty good offering. But I'm entirely sure I see a box geared for parties and shoes? Maybe more of a getting ready box, but I still would of liked a bit more of a connection. Regardless I do like every item in this box, and that is rare. Plus I got a new purse and some shoe designer knowledge.
Monthly subscription is £10
