Can you believe that the December 2015 Birchbox is already here? Seems like just yesterday I was thinking about their Stylist collaboration and BOOM! I come home to the last beauty box of the year.

 

Slipped inside an emerald suede clutch, – the December 2015 ‘All That Glimmers’ box is a nice little toast to the parties, lunches and dinners that everyone will be going to in the next few weeks. I am a little bit rusty when it comes to reviewing beauty boxes – so I must apologise if this review is a bit all over the place – but it is Christmas time and it is the time of the year to be jolly and watch Home Alone reruns in your onesie so I hope you forgive me.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè

I am actually on a bit of a skincare detox after having a mild allergic reaction to a skincare product two weeks ago so I am not in a rush to try out the Lait Crème Concentre.

I might try it out in a few weeks when my skin is feeling better as my skin tends to agree with French Skincare and I have tried other products from the Embryolisse range before

  

Model Co Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick in Smitten

This right here is why beauty boxes are about!! I’ve been wanting to try out Model Co for the longest time but have not managed to come across a stockist anywhere near me or my office – which sucks – so I am definitely looking forward to trying out this semi-matte lipstick.

  

Benefit The Ultimate Party Kit

I am not that familiar with Benefit and their products but I know that some people go absolute ape-shit over this brand so I can only imagine what their reaction would be like when they see that the December 2015 Birchbox has an exclusive kit inside. 

This month, you will find a Benefit Puff Off! Eye cream and the Benefit They’re Real Push-Up liner duo packed in the cutest, retro box. As I said previously I have not tried any of these product out before BUT I have heard quite good things about the Benefit Push Up Liner so having a travel size version that you can easily slip into your clutch could be a bonus for you

 

Ciate London Mini Paint Pot

I actually have no clue what shade this is and I don’t want to start guessing because I would probably get it wrong but in the December Birchbox you will find a mini Ciate Paint Box for your nail painting pleasure. I think that most people are going to get different colours in their Birchbox so expect slightly varied reviews on this box across the blogosphere.

 

Rituals T’ai Chi Foaming Shower Gel

I am OBSESSED with Rituals and their foaming shower gel range. I have already tried about 3 or 4 different formulations and my obsession grows every time. I haven’t tried the T’ai Chi gel before but I love the smell of lotus flower so I can see myself finishing this in about a week.

 

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris Eau de Parfum

Last but not least, we have a little French perfume sample from the Catherine Malandrino.

I love fragrances – the stronger, the better – and the Style de Paris Eau de Parfum is actually a fragrance that that I could consider purchase as it smells so citrusy and sweet.

I actually quite like this box and no I’m not just saying that because it had a red lipstick inside it – although that certainly helped – The December 2015 Birchbox is available to purchase on the Birchbox UK website and when you gift a Birchbox to a loved one or colleague, you will get a little something extra (though you have to check out their website to find out what it is). 

What do you think about this month’s Birchbox? Do you think that this is the best box they have had all year? Let me know in the comments below
