Birchbox: December 2011

So this months Birchbox was really cute. The tissue paper was white and sparkly unlike the regular hot pink tissue paper. This months Birchbox came much later than usual because of all the holiday shipping going on, I didn't think it was that much of a problem but because of the delay Birchbox gave all the members with delayed orders 100 Birchbox points which counts as 10% off of purchase of a full sized item. I'm not sure if I will make a purchase off of their site anytime soon but eventually I may. There were two errors on the card they sent with my Birchbox because it said I received a BeFine cleanser but I got a Benefit facial primer and it also said I got a hair oil when I actually got a body shimmer oil. I'm glad I got the facial primer rather than a cleanser though! The things that I'm most excited about are the Jouer lip gloss and Benefit Porefessional primer. Also, the energy booster drink will be interesting to try. Overall the products seem really nice and I can't wait to try them out longer.

The Products I recieved in December's Birchbox:

~Harvey Prince
Yogini Perfume
The card describes it by saying "Take a deep breath and relax with this calming scent. Notes of sandalwood, Egyptian myrrh, abd grapefruit will help you feel as good as you smell."

~Jouer
Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
The card describes it by saying "We teamed up with one of our favorite brands to create this custom fuchsia shade. Apply one coat for semi-sheer pigment, or build it for a hot pink pout."

~Benefit
The POREfessional
The website describes it by saying "Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to this translucent balm to shrink our pores. We can use it as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect t-zone, here we come."

~Nuxe
Huile Prodigieuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer
The website describes it by saying "Subtle shimmer? Coco Chanel fabulous. Gaudy glitter, on the other hand — more like fashion faux pas. This Parisian brand’s iridescent oil strikes the optimal balance between sophisticated, fun, and just plain good for you. Six essential oils, plus Vitamin E, leave face, body, and hair soft and silky. Better yet, microscopic flecks of golden shimmer deliver a subtle glow, perfect to set off your favorite party frock."

~ShowStoppers
Designer Fashion Tape
The card describes it by saying "Celeb stylists swear by these double-sided tape strips, which will ensure that your party dress stays perfectly in place."

~EBOOST
Orange Natural Energy Booster
The card describes it by saying "Bounce back post-party with this tangy citrus energy booster, packed with a mega-dose of nutrients."
