Okay, so I know that I always peak to see what box I am getting but it's still like Christmas day every month when I get it. I never know what sizes I am getting and I usually get a few things that I have never heard of or something that I have been dying to try.
This month I received 5 samples in my Birchbox.
•Caldrea Hand Soap
"We didn't know it was possible to go gaga for hand soap until we met Caldrea's lushly scented blends, including their limited edition holiday scents."
Well Im not exactly jumping up and down at receiving hand soap but I am so happy that I got this instead of food. I seriously think that I might have thrown the food back at Birchbox. I haven't gotten one food item from Birchbox that has actually tasted good, keep your freaking protein bars Birchbox I don't want them!
I received 2 packets of this hand soap. One in Vanilla Quince Santal (limited edition) and Sea Salt Neroli No 17.
Full Size: 10.8 oz $10.50
Sample Size: 2 packets 0.17 each worth $0.33
•ModelCo Shine Ultra Lip Gloss
"This Australian brand's winning gloss coats lips with subtle color. Plus, the built-in mirror allows for easy-on-the-go application."
I really like this lip gloss. It is a sticky lipgloss so if you don't like sticky lip glosses this one definitely isn't for you. It stays on pretty well and smells so good, it smells like watermelon!
I love that there is a mirror on it, I don't know how many times I have been out in public and wished I had at tiny mirror to put my lip gloss on, plus it's not so noticeable that you are looking in a mirror because it's just on the lip gloss tube!
I received Showgirl Red
Full Size: 4 ml $18.00
Sample Size: FULL SIZE!! Worth $18.00
•One Love Organics® Aromatic Body Serum
"Made with pumpkin seed and sea buckthorn oil, this fast-absorbing oil keeps skin supple and hydrated. Bonus: It has aromatherapy benefits!"
I haven't ever heard of this product but it sounds like an interesting idea. I will definitely be trying this out. I did spray one spray on my hand and that one spray went pretty far.
I received rose and it definitely smells like roses.
Full Size: 90 ml $39.00
Sample Size: 8 ml worth $3.47
•Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray
"This light, nonstick spray gives dry hair a voluminous, sexy, tousled look. Spray from ends to roots for best results. It's great for updos, too!"
I am so excited to try this out. I always buy volumizing hairspray because my hair lacks that ump. This says it has Zeolite, a natural volcanic material that removes toxins to keep your hair from losing volume throughout the day. Keratin proteins that strengthen your hair and UV absorbers keep the color looking amazing.
I am trying this out tomorrow!
Full Size: 1.5 oz $11.00
Sample Size: 1 oz worth $7.33
Bonus Item this month:
•John Varvatos Artisan
"It's a modern blend of energizing citrus and warm woods."
I think that this smells good!! It's not overly strong but it still smells manish. My husband said he likes it, I just wish it were a spray instead of just a vile.
Full Size: 2.5 oz $62.00
Sample Size: .05 oz worth $1.24
They also included a "gift envelope" that you can use for a gift, I highly doubt I will use it. I also received a coupon code for $15 off a pair of Chromatic heels. If anyone wants this leave me a comment letting me know or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give it to you. I can give it to 2 people. Expires 12/31/2012
I am really happy with my box this month. I would have loved the mascara or bath bomb but I REALLY like my box. I am super happy!!
Box total worth $30.37 Can you believe that I only paid $10.00 for all of this? I seriously got a Full Size lip gloss for FREE!!! Best deal ever!!!!
