Birchbox x Pinterest 'The Best Year Ever' January Beauty Box

Birchbox x Pinterest 'The Best Year Ever' January Beauty Box
As a huge fan of Pinterest (you can follow me here), you can imagine my delight when I heard that Birchbox were partnering up with the popular social media site for their January box. 'The Best Year Ever' box is packed with 5 beauty treats, a bonus item and five fabulous inspirational postcards illustrated by Viktoria Semjonova of And Smile Studio which I adore!

The product I'm most excited about this month is a new release from Benefit. The They're Real Tinted Lash Primer. Lash primers are something I'm completely new to and never tried before, so I'm really looking forward to giving this a go! This lash primer has a mink-brown tint and is said to define lashes when worn alone or with mascara. Alone, this gives lashes a natural look. With mascara, it boosts length and separation.

The second make up item comes from Jelly Pong Pong. A brand that I've seen appear in other Birchboxes but never mine! In my box was the Lighten Up Brightener & Waterliner. This off white pencil brightens and opens up the eyes when applied along the waterline. This can also be used as a highlighter on your brow and cheekbones!

It's the perfect time to receive the Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle. My hair is starting to get knotty as it's almost time for a trip to the hairdressers so a detangler is very welcome right now! This leave in mist also minimises frizz whilst safeguarding colour, adding shine and protecting the hair from UV rays and heat.

The Whish Three Wishes Body Butter in Almond is also included in my box this month. This smells amazing, I can't wait to try it! This is a non-greasy organic body butter containing aloe, shea butter and raspberry butter to control dryness and organic seaweed extract to firm the skin.

I've never heard of Absolution before but I'm curious about their cleansing water, L'eau Soir et Matin. I just hope I don't like it too much because it's pricey hehe! Absolution's line of organic skincare products are unisex and can be modified to suit the needs of your skin on any particular day. This cleansing water contains natural ingredients like hazelnut oil and potassium to eliminate make up and impurities leaving it soft and hydrated.

The bonus item this month is a handy little #NoFilter mirror. I've lost both of my compact mirrors so I was happy to see this in the box!

This months Birchbox wasn't the most impressive box, I have to say. There have been better boxes in the past and I had hoped the Pinterest collaboration would of been a little more exciting, the only thing I really love are the postcards which I'll be putting  up on my wall near my desk for some inspo during the year!
