The January Birchbox and why I've unsubscribed

Hello everyone, welcome back! I have my review of this month's Birchbox, and not to sound ungrateful, but I'm really not feeling the products I received. I heard that I lot of people got the new Benefit porefessional in their box, which I am dying to try, however I didn't receive it in my box. Instead I got another night cream, which after receiving similar products all the time, I know I'm not going to enjoy as much, so I was abit disappointed. Here are the products I received:


I got these cute little stickers, which I will admit are adorable, I'm just not sure what I'll use them for. I also got a was mitt which looks really good and I'm looking forward to using. Next up is a blush stick in this really pretty coral colour. I'm not a big fan of crayon products but I'll give it a go and see how I get on. I also got an eyeliner pencil, which I doubt I'll get much use out of, so this may be going in the friends and family pile. It does however look like a nice product, I just know I wont get any use out of it.





I got a hair sugar texturizing spray which looks interesting. I've used salt spray before but I've never seen a sugar one, so I'm excited to try this. I also got a night cream, which although it looks like a nice product, again I don't think I'll get much use from. I'm gutted I received this instead of the Porefesional sample.



I have decided to cancel my subscription for a number of reasons. Firstly, I want to save that extra bit of money each month. My boyfriend and I are starting to think about moving out and so I'm cutting down on a few things, and this had to go go first. Secondly I keep finding myself disappointed with some of the bits in the box. Don't get me wrong, I love having new things to try out, but somethings I find it abit more miss than hit. I'm just not feeling it anymore.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this. I'll be back soon with a new post, all about decluttering my makeup stash!

Until next time.
