Birchbox Review: December 2011

Catching up with Birchbox posts...

If you don't know about Birchbox, it is a monthly subscription service.  For $10 a month, you get a box of 4 to 5 high-end skincare, makeup, and/or hair care products to sample.  Sometimes there are also "lifestyle samples", like an organic granola bar, tea, etc.  Some products are even full-size!

It is a really fun thing to get in the mail!  Plus, I am a product junkie and love being able to try all these different products.  Check out the website for more information!

This month's theme was Frolic and Fancy!

Birchbox December 2011

Products Include:

  1. Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional - LOVE this stuff!  I have big pores and could definitely tell the difference in the first use.  I bought the full-size one right away and use it every day.
  2. Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink - Beautiful color.  It seems bright in the container, but it wears like a nice healthy pink lip color.  It lasts longer than a lot of my other glosses. 
  3. Kate Spade New York Twirl - Too musky for me.  It does have a heavy floral smell and just a hint of fruity to it.  I like the fruity notes, but it's just too musky and floral for me.
  4. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer -It is very shimmery and seemed to last a while.  I imagine it would be great in the summer to give your skin a little glow.
  5. ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape - Good stuff.  It is a lot stickier than the Hollywood Garment Tape, so it holds a lot better.
  6. EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster -Have not tried this yet.
