Birchbox x Vogue November 2017 edition box

Birchbox x Vogue box November 2017

Birchbox x Vogue review

I am going to be honest here. I signed up with Birchbox once more just for one of these boxes. I truly could not resist.

The highly anticipated Birchbox x Vogue limited edition box for November has had the beauty world in a bit of a stir lately.

What is exciting about Birchbox is that the items can vary, so there is always that slight element of surprise when you receive it. Despite all the social media excitement and the pictures whizzing about on the great old world wide web that can at time reveal the content of the box.

My personal Birchbox x Vogue November 2017 box contained the following items:

  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer
  • NUXE Huile Prodigieuse®
  • Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo
  • L’Occitane en Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream
  • Birchbox Brush Cleaner

So, what did I think of the Birchbox x Vogue collaboration?

Benefit Hoola Bronzer: The bronzer was a nice little surprise and a mini-sized product that will be gracing my makeup bag till its empty. I am not much of a bronzer girl as I am pretty pale in all honesty. However, the Benefit Hoola Bronzer is famed for its matte golden glow and works great when used delicately to contour my at times ghoulish complexion.

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse®: This multi-purpose dry oil certainly felt good on the skin. I liked how you could use it on both the face, body and hair. The oil  features a blend of essential oils, including camellia, sweet almond, borage, hazelnut, St. John’s Wort and macadamia, as well as being enriched with Vitamin E.  It has a light floral scent so perfect for when you want to skip on the perfume for a day.

Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo: I have to admit, I am very loyal to Batiste – having got me through many a rushed morning. So, when I discovered the Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo I was a little dubious. Saying this, it certainly works a treat and doesn’t seem to leave as much residue as its cheaper competitors. However, with the inflated price tag, I will remain loyal to the old faithful.

L’Occitane en Provence Shea Butter Hand Cream: Lets face it, L’Occitane hand cream is a staple in any girls hand bag. This shea butter edition is a go-to for anyone this winter with its pleasant scent and ultra-moisturising effects. However, this sample size is quite frankly teeny – which is a bit of a shame. hereYou can take a read of my shea honey hand cream review .

Birchbox Brush Cleaner: Now, this will come in very handy. I have been mulling over purchasing a brush cleaner for some time and this little brush cleaner easily fits on the fingers for ease of use. It features stripped and dotted silicone for deep cleansing of your brushes.

Although I love the concept of Birchbox and the products are fabulous, I do hold a bit of a vice when the product samples are very small. However, the Vogue x Birchbox box featured a fabulous selection of products and proved itself worth the price. You can sign up to Birchbox or shop their beauty collection here.

    • I feel you, girl! 😄 Some full size products wouldn’t go a miss.

      It is a shame with teeny samples like the handcream. I understand why they couldn’t have a full size Benefit Hoola mind…

    I like the contents in the box. L’Occitane handcream is a must!

    • Yeah, it was certainly a good one. Oh, I must agree – it has always been my go to handcream, along with The Body Shop handcreams. 💖
