Birchbox arrived, it was a happy day for mail today. Two boxes on Saturday, great way to spend the weekend!
The December box had a new, festive design to it, spruced up for the holidays. It was like opening a little present.
I am very happy with this box, it seemed to fit my profile a little better this time around and contained 6 samples.
Miss Jessie's Original Pillow Soft Curls:
This light scented lotion is applied to damp, combed through hair. I used about the size of a silver dollar amount and scrunched it through, then blow dried with a diffuser. I liked the feel of it, not sticky or greasy. It held my curls nicely, but I still felt like there was frizz. So I still applied my Secret Weapon. But other than that, it is a nice product.
Nuxe Melting Cleansing Gel with Rose Petals:
Soap-free, the rose scented facial cleanser reminds me of that lotion my mother used to use when I was little, RoseMilk or something like that. It smells exactly like it, very nostalgic. It brings back memories and is calming for me. It removes dirt, oil and makeup.
Perfeckt Beauty Lash Perfection Gel:
I haven't tried this yet,
but the product description states it is a multi-tasking primer,
condition and mascara in one. It's a cute little tube with a full size
This little cake blush cam in Hot Mama, a light, natural color. I liked it, gave my cheeks a nice and healthy looking glow. I would definitely use this to brighten up my face for casual everyday looks.
John Varvatos Artisan Eau de Toilette:
I passed this one on to my husband, so am awaiting the scent to waft my way one of these days. But on first smell when you open the vial, it is nice, clean and manly.
I liked this box, had some great products that fit my lifestyle and low maintenance needs. Great month!!
