Birchbox UK – December 2016

Birchbox UK December 2016 Merry & Bright unboxing

Merry & Bright chimes the theme of the final Birchbox of the year! Birchbox UK December 2016 ends the self-proclaimed ‘best year ever’, I was excited to say the least.

So was it worth looking forward to?  Find out and watch my unboxing video below.

Birchbox UK December 2016

Birchbox have really upped the festive feel to the theme and the box design this month. Of course this was predictable, but it still felt like I was opening a Christmas present early!

Instead of going with the drawer design they’ve been accustomed to lately, this one opened from the top.  I’ve been using the drawer boxes to store my nail varnishes, whereas this design will be great for keeping my make up brushes together!

Anyway, on with more important discussions – the samples! Click on the product to see more details:

Elemis Hydra-Nourish Night Cream
Percy & Reed Wonder Balm
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick
Benefit Benetint
Ciaté Fierce Flicks Eyeliner

Last month I said Birchbox UK December 2016 is going to be a winner and I think I was right.

Not only are there some very well-known brands here, they’re all really useful samples too.  As I said in the video, you could actually use them all for a night out!

I’m really interested in trying the Ciaté Fierce Flicks Eyeliner.  Not only am I an eyeliner addict, especially of the felt tip variety, but I also didn’t realise this brand sold products other than nail varnish.  Was I the only one to have thought this?

And of course it’s full size and worth more than I paid for the box – bonus!

Conclusion

I’m pleased with all of my samples this month, although I did see other Birchbox subscribers who received a Bobbi Brown mascara and Benefit Porefessional Primer!  I can’t lie, I hope I’ll be receiving those in future boxes…

Otherwise, well done Birchbox.  For me, this has been the ‘best year ever’ as I can’t remember any box that has left me disappointed.

But, saying that there is still room to improve and impress.  It’ll be nice if this standard is maintained next year and more brands come on board.  Judging by Bobbi Brown landing in the Birchbox shop lately, I think there will be and I can’t wait.
