Blogmas Day 18: December Birchbox *SPOILER ALERT*

*SPOILER ALERT* If you are waiting for your Birchbox and want to keep the surprise til then, please look away NOW (only showing the box cover as a teaser, hee hee..). Otherwise, please read on....

I have subscribed to Birchbox for a few months now.  I don't normally blog about my box because I can never decide when is a good time to reveal my box. Too early, it will ruin the surprises to other people; too late, the post becomes not relevant anymore. However, since it is Blogmas and I basically document about my December life (well, mainly my purchases), so I am doing this quick post as I just received my box yesterday.

When there is a special box, the design of the pattern is always beautiful. As this should be a Xmas themed box, I would think the zig-zag pattern resemble Christmas trees.

In my box, I received (from left to right):

Twistband Hair Tie -  £10 for a pack of 6
Alima Pure Luminious Shimmer Eyeshadow - £12.50
Delarom Acquacomfort Mask - £24
BeeKind Body Lotion - £12.95
Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray - £18.50
Nail Rock Nail Glitter Blue - £6.99
A $20 voucher code for American Jewellery brand Baublebar, which is going to be launched in the UK.

Apart from Twistband, I have not heard of any of the other brands before. I have been wanting to try Twistband for some time, but I couldn't justify £10 for just 6 hair ties! I had a first try of my Twistband, I am afraid I am not too blown away by it. I think my hair is quite thick and heavy, so I felt that the Twistband was not strong enough to hold my ponytail in place. I will keep using it for more times to get a better understanding of it.

Another exciting item from this box is the voucher and the news about launching of Baublebar in UK! If you have seen Ingrid MissGlamorazzi's video, you should have heard of this brand. Baublebar do young, fun & cute jewellery. Ingrid has even designed her own pieces (check them out here)!! I can't wait to get my hands on them!

Are you subscribing to Bichbox or any other beauty boxes? I love to heard what you get in your box!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce

Makeup Lego : Jouer Little Black Dress Palette

I love Lego and I love Makeup - what if there is a Lego in the makeup world....?! Jouer Cosmetics has made this dream come true, especially with the two palettes that they have: Blushing Beauty Collection and the Little Black Dress palette. A few YouTubers like Essie Button , Fleur De Force , and Ameila have talked about the Blushing Beauty Collection on their videos, but I actually prefer the Little Black Dress palette instead.
