November Birchbox

This months Birchbox theme is Cosy at Home, and boy is it a good one! I really love how Birchbox incorporate a theme to go with the products each month. The Cosy at Home edition includes a load of essentials that are perfect for that pamper night in; Just because sometimes all you want to do is relax in your huge, snuggly dressing gown after a hard days work with a good book or your favourite film.

If you are already a subscriber you will know the products inside can vary sometimes, but here is what came in mine this month.

Jane Iredale - Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner

This acts as a base for your mascara, to lengthen and strengthen your lashes. I haven't tried anything like this before so I will be interested to see how it works. Any products that claim to lengthen is always worth a try in my book, because I'm not exactly blessed with the longest of lashes.
I have tried another product from Jane Iredale before, which was a lip and cheek tint from a previous Birchbox, it was absolutely brilliant so I have high hopes for this.

Full Size £15

Beauty Protector - Protect and Treat Hair Mask x2

This hair mask is supposed to rejuvenate and protect your hair, it also contains the well known and loved ingredient argan oil, along with honey, amber and crushed pearls - sounds like a very luxurious hair mask don't it?
Inside my box I had two little tubs of this, which gives me one application per tub. It smells amazing and leaves the scent on the hair once washed off...which is great! - it really annoys me when you get a really lovely smelling hair product, then once you wash it off its gone.
I was really impressed with this mask, It made my hair so soft and shiny and seemed to have smoothed down/tamed my frizzyness.

Full Size £16

OPI - A Grape Affair!

I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I spotted a full sized OPI polish in my box! Birchbox have included the minis before but I've never had a full size.
Even the colour is beautiful too, and right up my street. If you read my blog regularly you'll know that OPI is my favourite brand of nail polish so I was chuffed to say the least.
I think their quality is top notch, and the shade range is just amazing. The shade I got was 'A Grape Affair!' it's a beautiful deep, rich purple crème. I painted this on a good few days ago and still not a chip in sight.

Full Size £11.95

Lord & Berry - Mini Bronzer, Sienna

You cant go wrong with a good matte bronzer in my eyes! I thought this looked similar to Benefit Hoola at first but its a little darker actually.
I really like how it looks matte but once applied it gives off a lovely glow so it's not completely flat. This bronzer is also buttery soft and super easy to blend, I have been using this for contour recently and I have to say I'm impressed!

Full Size £19

Dr. Jart + - Pore Refine Tight Effect Toner

Another full size item this month! every box will include a full size Dr. Jart skincare item, this is amazing considering these alone are worth more than the what you pay for the whole box all together.
I have never tried anything from Dr. Jart before but I have been loving using this toner. Some toners can leave my skin feeling stripped and dry, but this just makes it feel clean, refreshed. This specific toner is also supposed to tighten pores, but I suppose I will only notice this with continued use.

Full Size £18

The Lifestyle Extra - Montezuma's Mini Chocolate Bar

I thought this chocolate bar was a cute little extra and fits into the theme of the box nicely, this was absolutely delicious too - so much so I even browsed their website. I have never heard of this company before. They do the most yummy looking chocolate treats, if you like a nice sounding hot chocolate you need to have a look for yourself.
