December 2015 Birchbox

Good morning everyone!

It’s hard to believe next week is Christmas!!  I can’t believe how time has flown by!  Have you guys finished your Christmas gift shopping yet?

I’m almost done with mine!

Anyways…I recently received my December Birchbox and I just couldn’t wait to share with you all what came inside!

Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products but have been including more makeup lately!!

This month’s theme is:  “All Wrapped Up”.

 

 

I am in love with this box!  The color and pattern remind me of a warm and cozy sweater (weird I know).

 

This months box came with a coupon code good for $10 off any $35+ purchase in the Birchbox.com shop.

I can definitely put that to good use!

 

Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence perfume sample:  Full Size= $65-$110

 

An ode to Provence, this timeless scent mixes fruity and floral nuances with vanilla and patchouli.

 

So you guys I am not into fragrances.  Very rarely will I find one that doesn’t irritate my skin and/or nose.

 

This perfume actually smells really nice, but I can see it giving me a bad headache throughout the day.  😦

 

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream Sample:  Full Size = $16

 

Great for head-to-toe hydration, it helps with all forms of stubborn dryness, including flaky red skin, chapped lips, and callused feet. The natural formula is free of ingredients like artificial dyes, fragrances, and petrolatum.

 

Because this sample is on the smaller side I think I will use it on my cuticles or even lips. They have been ridiculously dry and nothing seems to be working!

 

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator Sample:  Full Size = $34

 

This face scrub mimics the effects of microdermabrasion for glowing, smooth skin.

 

I actually received this sample in my July Ipsy bag.  I don’t mind having another sample though because I absolutely adore this product!

 

I will leave you my full review here in case you are interested:

Vasanti Review

 

Coastal Scents styleEYES Eyeshadow Palette Sample in “formalEYES”: Full Size = $12

A bold, beautiful eye shadow palette in always fashionable pinks and mauves.

 

I really love these two shades.  They are stunning!

 

As you can see in the swatch above, the lighter shade is a bit powdery.  I’m hoping it will be easy to work with once I try them out on my eyes.

 

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Tinted Primer Sample:  Full Size = $24

Tint, define and prime your way to the longest lashes ever-use alone or layer with your favorite mascara.

 

I’m actually really excited about this product.  I’ve been hearing a lot of things about it and couldn’t wait for it to come out.  Now I get to try it before it is officially released on December 26th.

 

 

I love that you can use this both alone and/or under mascara.  I don’t wear mascara on a daily basis so I’m curious to see if this will really leave a nice tint and define my lashes.

 

This is a water-resistant gel formula with lash conditioning Provitamin B5.

 

Stand out products this month:

The eye shadow duo, face scrub, and the tinted primer!!!

 

What did you get in your box this month?  Has anyone had any experience with any of these products?  Let me know!
