The theme for December’s Birchbox is Holiday 2013! The external box it was shipped in was gold and had a cute holiday print on it!
Inside is a special box for the season to use as a keepsake.
The inside has a gold striped pattern and reminds me of gift wrap!
This cute extra item is from Birchbox, and is a reusable sticker to clean your phone and sport your love for Birchbox!
Inside this cute pillow box…
First up is a Lait-Creme Concentre (24-Hour Miracle Cream) from Embryolisse, full size $16. It’s “A makeup artist must-have, this cult moisturizer moonlights as a primer and makeup remover.” I am going to use it as a make up remover with a cotton ball for my eye makeup! I like that it’s moisturizing, hopefully it works well!
Also in the pillow box was this adorable mini Jouer Pink Glace Moisturizing Lip Gloss, full size is $20. It’s adorably mini, and perfect for not weighing your purse down or keeping in your pocket. “Party-ready gloss with a sheer finish. Shea butter and jojoba oil keep lips flake-free.” This feels really moisturizing even after applying a little!
I’ve never tried a hair lotion so I’m curious about this Pure Happy Smooth bottle from Hayadi. “Keratin-infused styling lotion that seals the hair cuticle to tame frizz and add shine.” Sounds like a good hair product for the winter.
I also received a HALF-UP from SARAHPOTEMPA, it was listed in capital letters. Full size $9. “This nifty tool helps create the perfect half-up style, small top knot, or low bun.” I already have this and a full sized one in another brand, and the problem with my hair is I have way too much so it doesn’t hold up well with this. I might keep it though and give it another try later.
The lifestyle extra is from Fatty Sundays, Gourmet Chocolate Covered Pretzels. A pack of 5 is $7. The sample came in a cute bite sized piece, in mint chocolate flavor. I received a full size pumpkin flavored set that I wasn’t fond of, from another box sub, but this flavor was really tasty. It’s described as “Sweet and salty gourmet pretzel sticks that we can’t stop eating.”
This was a pretty good box, and I’m especially excited about the fun mini lip gloss.
