Birchbox Review: December

I really, really love buying beauty products, but I have a whole drawer dedicated to things I thought I would like but once I got them home didn’t work out for one reason or another.  I also have expensive tastes.  I don’t really want to know how much of my money is sitting in that drawer completely wasted. So when saw a few friends on twitter talking about Birchbox, a high end beauty sample subscription service I was excited to try it out.  Basically, for ten dollars a month, a cute little box of samples chosen based on your own customizable profile comes to your door so you can try out products before committing.  

December was my first month getting the box and there were definitely a few products I will be adding to my wish list.  


Befine Gentle Cleanser: I like this well enough, but not as much as what I’m currently using (Philosophy: Purity Made Simple)
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink: I LOVE this lip gloss.  Not too sticky, not as bright as it looks and lasts a decent amount of time.  This shade is curently sold out right now, but I definitely want to snatch some up when it’s available. 
Loreal Professional Mythic Oil: This is also a favorite product from the box.  I have been rubbing it into the ends of my hair after I blow dry. It smells great and it keeps the frizz and dryness that comes with curly hair products to a minimum. 
Harvey Prince Yogini Fragrance: Smells nice enough, but a little too much Sandlewood for my taste.  If you like deep earthy scents, it may be a good match for you.
EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster: I really liked the taste and it would be a good alternative to my usual afternoon coffee/tea boost.
Showstoppers Designer Fashion Tape: Not really my thing, but I’ll hang on to it in case I ever need it
