Birchbox November 2013 UK!

Hey Guys, 

I received my Birchbox yesterday, and here’s what I got:



 Laura Mercier Long lash Mascara, Sample size, Full size retails for £18.50

I’m really excited to try this mascara, the wand looks really small and it should be perfect for my bottom lashes. 


 Matriskin High Performance Collagen MP Serum, Sample size 7.5ml, Full size retails for £80.50

I’ve never heard of the the brand Matriskin before, but reading about it and looking at the price makes me think thats it’s a luxury, high end brand and I’m really looking forward to try it. Trouble is even if I like it, I don’t think I could ever spend £80.50 on a serum!


 Weleda Replenishing Oat Shampoo, Sample Size 18ml, Full size retails for £8.95

I’m looking forward to try this shampoo, I wish it was a bigger sample though. I’ve tried the Weleda ‘Skin food’ before and really liked it, so would be nice to try another product from the brand.


 Chella Highlighter Pencil, Full size £15.95

This is the only full size product, which I’m looking forward to try. It’s great for highlighting the brow bone, cheek bones and the inner corners of the eye.


 English Laundry  Eau De Perfum sample, Full size from £16

I really don’t like getting perfume samples, as you can pick these up for free from the beauty counters. I’ve never heard of this brand but the perfume smells really lovely.


I also received a lifestyle extra (Pukka Tea), as well as a beauty extra (Birchbox Pencil Sharpener)



 I’d love to know what you got in your box, so please share in the comments below.

        Oh noo, it’s always an extra-bummer when something doesn’t work that you were looking forward to. On the plus side, at least it was in a Birchbox not something you specially bought to try?

      Thanks hun, the serum is really lovely, it’s a shame it’s so expensive! The mascara did nothing for my lashes 🙁 i’m so disappointed, it may work for other people but definitely doesn’t work for me xxx

        I guess it let’s you try it though 🙁 aww thats a shame to hear that! It’s worse when you are looking forward to trying something and it disappoints! I got the laura mercier body butter and the lip define fill from Lila’lli which were great. My reviews up on my blog hun! xxx
