Birchbox Unboxing – December 2014
This is not an ad or sponsored post by Birchbox. I am actually a huge fan and subscriber of Birchbox. I absolutely love subscription boxes of all kinds, its like going to the mailbox and receiving a gift in the mail. Birchbox sends a monthly box filled with high quality beauty product samples. I’m not normally a fancy beauty product girl, the majority of my beauty and cosmetic products are from Rite Aid. However, since subscribing, I’ve added some more premium products to my arsenal.
Here’s what came in my festive December box!
This first sample is Tocca Crema da Mano-Cleopatra-2 oz. by Tocca It smells very refreshing like grapefruit and cucumber. I always carry around some lotion in my purse.
Rusk Texture Dry Finish Spray 8oz came in my Birchbox, I don’t own a finishing spray, this is different from hairspray, it seals in your look after your hair has been styled, without leaving it all crunchy. I love my Aqua Net from Rite Aid but it leaves my hair hard as a rock!
Wow what happened here? This photo is super amaze compared to the others. Red lips is a look that I need to try out more often! I love this color by Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge, its fire engine red! It goes on easily, almost like a lip gloss but as potent as a lipstick
Gah! Super Dry Hair, I hate it! it’s the side effect of being an Asian bleached blone, there’s not a whole lot I can do about it. Amika Nourishing Mask For The Hair 60ml (2.03 oz) is meant to be a weekly treatment to rejuvenate dry or damages hair, make sure to leave it on for at least 5 minutes!
Lord & Berry Line Shade Eye Pencil-Dark Black is always useful, I use it daily, this travel size is perfect for my makeup bag. You can’t tell but its also glittery
There was also a Chuao Chocolatier Pop Corn Pop Chocolate Bar which is not shown because I ate it immediately. it was REALLY good, I love saltiness mixed with sweet, and the popcorn in this chocolate pops, like pop rocks! Theres usually a little sweet snack included with each Birchbox
There are a couple notable items which were in previous boxes that I loved so much that I ended up investing in full sized versions that I recommend!
StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Night Treatment, 1.7 fl. oz. has become a beauty product that I absolutely cannot live without. I have used Botox before but this nighttime treatment makes it so I don’t have to go under the needle again. It does what it promises, it actually fights signs of aging and plumps up your skin. I use it under my eyes and around my laugh line area.
Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 Face Spotlight for Women is a product that I put on before I put on my makeup every morning. It adds a bronzing effect adding a nice color and highlight to my skin and evens my skin.
Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm SPF30 is something I need now because I used to breakout really badly in high school and I have always been terrible about popping pimples. I have big pores and some damaged skin for my teenage years. BB is in the family of the super popular pore reducer products that are currently on the market. I like it because it is smooth and luscious and almost acts like a very light foundation. A tiny sample from Birchbox lasted me months!
