Birchbox – December 2012 Review – Women’s Monthly Beauty Subscription Boxes
I love when Birchbox changes up their packaging for the holidays.
The Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (Get one month free with annual subscription)
The Products: Samples of beauty and lifestyle items, with an occasional full sized treat!
Juicy Couture Fragrance – .05 oz Value $1.30
I usually never excited about getting fragrance samples in subscription boxes, but I do really like this scent.
Frownies Eye Gels – 1 set Value $10
These are…interesting! You have to leave them on for 30 min, so I haven’t had an opportunity to try them yet. They’re supposed to increase circulation and deliver deep hydration, which should diminish wrinkles and puffiness.
Per-fekt Beauty Lash Perfection Gel – .01 oz Value $1
This sample was soo tiny. I was pretty disappointed in the sample size because most mascara samples usually last me a week or two. This mascara wasn’t for me though – it did make my lashes super dark, but didn’t give me the volume and length I look for in mascara.
Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo – 1.75 oz Value $6.65
Yay! A sulfate free shampoo! This will definitely go to use.
Tea Forte Smart Skin Teas – 3 bags Value $1.12 total
Well, thanks to subscription boxes I will never experience a tea shortage in my house! The Cherry Marzipan flavor sounds delicious – I’m going to have to start drinking more tea!
Coupon code to Rent the Runway – $50 Off $125
Verdict: I received about $20 worth of product in the December Birchbox. I’m not in love with every item, but definitely excited to try the shampoo and the Frownies. Were you happy with your Birchbox this month?
