Ever since this box was announced, I immediately wanted it, but for once in my life, I exercised some restraint and waited until Black Friday so I could get 25% off and use points. Totally worth the wait. Can I just say…all of Birchbox’s limited edition boxes are beautiful. I find ways to reuse them around the house because they are so pretty and this is no exception.
Upon opening the box, I found their classic crinkle confetti and product cards, in addition to some idea cards regarding the items in the box and honestly, you’d be able to buy this box and give it as a gift without even wrapping it because it’s so well done. I’m keeping my eye on the Vanity Affair box too because that one looks LUXE!
So now for a run down of the products:
Soak Handmaid Luxury Hand Creme
Fig scented lotion. Could be good, could go horribly wrong. Pleased to report I’m obsessed with this smell and its a nice non-greasy formula.
Makerskit Hanging Photo Clips Complete Project Kit
I’m picturing a little arts and crafts with this using some Disney pictures!
Meri Meri The Little Garden Treat Kit
A nice package of gift tags with cute sayings on them. Luckily these aren’t all holiday themed and can be used throughout the year.
Askinosie Chocolate Single Origin Sipping Chocolate
Looks like a decadent cup of hot chocolate coming my way. I’m pretty excited to try this!
Cowshed Lippy Cow Natural Lip Balm
A good moisturizing lip balm and I’m pleased that there’s no tint to it. Too often I’m plagued with lip stains and ridiculous colored glosses in my Birchboxes so this is a welcome change.
Richer Poorer Socks
Wore them yesterday and I love ’em. So comfy and great pattern. Give me 3 more pairs please.
Illume Mini Tin Soy Candle
Well….I like the idea. I do enjoy the idea of a candle but this scent is Noble Currant and I don’t love it. Maybe I’ll feel different about it when I actually burn it but it’s not my ideal scent.
And that’s that for the Home Sweet Homespun box. Truthfully, I can be convinced that I need just about any of the Birchbox Limited Edition boxes. This is definitely one of the better ones. I think my favorite is still the In Full Bloom box but the boxes that mix in home items as well are always tempting!
