January Birchbox - Women's Health

With the new year comes the new Birchbox and one I couldn't wait to receive after seeing the first spoilers. January's Birchbox is in partnership with Women's Health, perfect for starting the new year. All I've heard is "new year, new me" and that's exactly what this box is perfect for! I've never read Women's Health, I'd much rather pick up a Cosmopolitan and read about sex or fashion than how many laps I should be doing to work off a bacon sarnie but after flicking through the bite size challenges and seeing the card for a bargain subscription, I've changed my mind. Let's face it, who doesn't want a stomach like Millie Mackintosh?

The products inside this months box is what I was really waiting for, Activbod Feel Great Shower being the least exciting because shower gel is shower gel after all! It smells really refreshing and the boyfriend will probably finish it up for me. HealGel Body is a product I've wanted to try for so long! It's a poxy little sample but I'm hoping it does some good so I can justify buying the full size version especially as it smells so good.

Philip Kingsley Body Building Conditioner is another product I've been wanting to try for a while. I have quite thick hair so it's not for my hair type but when my hair is first washed it looks a bit blah so fingers crossed this gives it some much needed body for day one hair. Caudalie Radiance Serum arrived just in time as I've just finished up the serum I'd been using. This is oil free, light on the skin and not too fragranced which is how I like my skincare. 

The Stila Lip Glaze is the item that had me the most excited. Stila is a brand I've been meaning to try for some time and I've heard fab things about their lip glaze. I received Glimmer which is a pale, glittery pink. It's the perfect my lips but better shade with some added sparkle!

There was also a sachet of green tea and a pilates band, I have visions of me hitting myself in the face from it snapping if I use it though. I am really impressed with this months box, it reflects the theme perfectly and I really love all but one of the five beauty products inclosed which is pretty good going. Also if you sign up to Birchbox this month using the code BBXBEAUTYBLGIFT you will receive a free Beauty Blender worth £26!
