Birchbox X Disney The Nutcracker & The Four Realms November Box


I went off beauty boxes this year, I used to be subscribed to quite a few of them but I just felt like I wasn't getting things I will use or suitable for my skin type etc. The one beauty box who offer a subscription service and one-off special boxes who I have enjoyed this year is Latest in Beauty but that's because their subscription service is one when you choose the products you receive. But after I saw Birchbox's November box in collaboration with Disney, I had to pick it up, even for the pretty box alone (which by the way I'm going to be reusing for some of my overflow lipsticks).

If you don't already know then Birchbox is £10 + £2.99 p&p per month and you get 5 products inside every month. But you can get £5 off your first box if you use this link (aff). You can also unsubscribe at any time.

Inside the November Birchbox everyone received a Space Mask which is something I've actually wanted to give a try for a while and also a Manna Kadar Beauty Diamond Dust Roller Shadow which you had the choice to choose between the shades Pixie and Enchanted. I chose Pixie which is kind of a pink champagne shade because I thought it seemed kind of festive looking and would suit my blue eyes better. 

For the other 3 products it could've been any 3 products from the following list - 

Dr.PAWPAW Original Clear Balm 10ml, Polaar Polar Night Cream, PAUL & JOE Illuminating Foundation Primer, WUNDER2 WUNDEREXTENSIONS Lash Extension Stain Mascara, GLAMGLOW INSTAMUD 60 Second Pore-Remind Treatment, Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow Illuminator, Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask, Lottie London Slay All Day Long Wear Lip Liner in Werk It, Beauty BLVD Divine Hydra-Gel Eye Mask and WUNDER2 WUNDERKISS Essential Lip Scrub.


Inside my box I got the Polaar Polar Night Cream, Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask and the DR.PAWPAW Original Clear Balm as well as the Manna Kadar Dust Roller Shadow and Space Mask as mentioned above already. I'm not going to lie in my perfect box or say if you had a choice to choose the other 3 products I would've chosen the PAUL & JOE Illuminating Foundation Primer, GLAMGLOW INSTAMUD and Lottie London Werk It Lip Liner. But I have been wanting to try the Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask for a while and I could probably get two face masks out of the tube so that's something.

I'm not that fussed about the Polaar Polar Night Cream, although the packaging is nice I don't really like night cream as I find that they tend to be too heavy for my combination skin type. I've also been using my Glossier Balm Dot Com in Birthday more than my old holy grail lip balm which was the DR.PAWPAW Original Clear Balm but it's good to have a little backup just in case I do decide to go back to using it more often.

Overall was the box worth it? I would say yes. 3 out of 5 of the products I will be using, the other two are a bit meh products in my eyes. I'll probably give the night cream to my mum who has more of a drier/sensitive skin type and the DR.PAWPAW will probably be put in my skincare overflow drawer until further notice. Also the box is super pretty and can be reused for other things too.

Don't forget if you're planning on trying Birchbox then you can get £5 off using my link here. (aff code).

  1. I absolutely love the design of the box this month! I've not been subscribed to Birchbox for a while, I felt the products kept being repeated and I just wasn't using everything, they can be so hit and miss sometimes. I love the look of some of the things you got though, spacemasks are fab! x

  2. This looks like such a good box! I've never subscribed to a beauty box before, as they seem so hit and miss. This box looks good though, I love Spacemasks xx
