Birchbox Nov 2017 - Benefit, Clarins, Seche Vite and More

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Clarins Hand Cream, Percy & Reed No Oil Oil, Birchbox Brush Cleaner Review
Birchbox November 2017

In contrast to the somewhat un-exciting Birchbox offerings in the last few months, I was very impressed with this month's offering so much that I decided to write about it.

It came with the usual cardboard drawer box featuring this month's collaboration with Vogue. I think this was a good thing as the product samples provided were mostly from known brands.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat - Full Size RRP £9

I've been a loyal fan of Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat since I started blogging and have gone through at least 3 of these, that's impressive considering I have never finished a bottle of nail varnish! My latest bottle is on its last coats and I was happily surprised that a full sized version came with this box.

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream Sample Size - Standard Size is RRP £21

This box came with a handy travel sized version of Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. This cold winter season is the best time to receive this to keep your hands (feet, body, anywhere else!) soft and supple. I'm a strong advocate for moisturising to prevent premature ageing skin. My skin soaks this up without any greasy residue, and it smells of cherry blossoms too!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer Travel Size - Standard Size is £24.50

This is one of my favourite bronzers and the handy travel size is perfect for short trips.

Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil Oil Sample Size - Standard Size is £14

I admit, despite these years of beauty blogging, I am hopeless when it comes to fancy hair care. My hair routine is simple - grease-fighting shampoo for my oily scalp, air-drying my hair naturally and brushing down with a tangle-teaser. I'm not certain whether I would get much use of this one and I'll probably end up giving it away.

Birchbox Brush Cleaner Review November 2017
Birchbox Brush Cleaner on (Tiny) Size 6 Hands

Birchbox Brush Cleaner £5

I currently use this larger grooved silicone oven glove from Amazon to wash my brushes with, but the Birchbox Brush Cleaner is a lot smaller and therefore perfect for travels to provide a deep-yet-gentle clean. I add a dollop of Dove Liquid Hand Wash with Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla to the mitt and swirl the brush on the brush cleaner until the bristles are clean and leave to air dry. Perfect.

As you can see, subscribing to this month's box is especially good value for money. If there's anything from this post you like, you can purchase a single box at £5 off using this link: Birchbox, no commitment necessary!
