december birchbox

It's time for my December Birchbox review!

The packaging was very festive this month, and I can't wait until I have a chance to re-gift this box.  All it needs is a bow!

I loved this little gift tag that came with it!  I'm pretty sure I used it on Tony's sister's Christmas gift, although in the haze of holiday gift-wrapping I really can't be sure.

Kérastase Resistance CimentThermique РProtect
Another hair product... I haven't used it yet so I have no review right now.  I'll let you know how it goes!

Chuao Chocolatier AssortedChocoPod
Can't complain here, chocolate is always great!

Aerie Shimmer 1.7oz Fragrance
Another perfume sample...I like this one a little more than the sample in the November box.  But I'm really not a perfume person.  I prefer body spray, and Victoria's Secret Love Spell is still my all-time fave!

Benefit it's potent! eyecream
I was excited about this one!  I love Benefit products, and who couldn't use an eye cream?

ModelCo SHINE Ultra LipGloss in Red
The bright red color freaked me out a little at first, but it actually goes on almost clear with just a subtle red tint, and it smells good enough to eat.  Plus, there's a mirror on the side for easy application.  A girl can never have too many lip glosses, am I right??

Overall, I was happy with this month's Birchbox.  Did any of you get anything different this month?


  1. anything benefit i gravitate too, i would love to hear your review of that sample you received and that cute christmas tag is a nice touch!

    1. Thanks, Meg! I will definitely post a review of the eye cream. I've only remembered to use it once so far, but I'll let you know! Take care!

  2. I would be excited to get this every month! But I'm always buying so much new stuff to try already! I just got a new paul mitchell shampoo and some different kind of conditioner from the salon, a new face cream, face wash, and new mascara! omg!

    1. I'm such a beauty product junkie. :) I definitely don't need to be getting more samples each month but I can't help myself! What mascara did you buy? I'm still trying to find the best one.

  3. I have been wanting to get Birchbox for a while! Do you think that it is worth it? It seems like it to me :)

    1. You should sign up!! You can cancel any time if you don't think it's worth it. This is only my second month and so far, I've only gotten 2-3 samples of products that I would actually choose for myself. But I'm one of those people who love getting packages in the mail, plus I love the whole surprise factor of "what will I get this month??", so for me the $10 is worth it. It's also a great gift idea. I signed my sister up for a 3-month subscription for her birthday, which is $30. Which is sort of like 3 gifts in one. :) Thanks for stopping by!


I love reading your comments, and promise to reply!
