December 2011 Birchbox

 If you're a beauty junkie, you've probably already heard of Birchbox which is a subscription service that brings you high end beauty samples for $10/month. If you're not familiar, check out the video below to learn more about it.
I've been a Birchbox member for about 6 months and there are hits and misses but I like the service overall. There's usually about 4 or 5 samples in each box. Any many times there's a deluxe size or full size product that costs much more than the $10 you pay for the box. Items from well known brands and lesser known brands are included. Of course I'm more intrigued by lesser known and indie brands. And then if you love one of the samples, you can buy the full size product on the Birchbox site. Also, you can receive points for giving feedback and inviting friends - every 100 points equals $10. And I must mention that the packaging is always really great. Check it out and join HERE.
Anyway, let me show you my box and what I got. And please excuse my bad camera phone pics, my real cameral died today :(

1. Nuxe Huile Prodiguieuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer
    I've always wanted to try this but it's so expensive - $56 for 3.3 oz. I like it! Nice, sparkly, and
    softly scented.

2. Recharge EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster
    I'm indifferent about this one.

3. Harvey Prince Ageless Perfume
    Not a big fan. I'm more of a solid or roll-on oil girl. And I get most of my fragrances from indies.

4. Prep ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape

5. Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional
    My skin seems to hate primers, pore minimizing, and mattefier type products.
    They always turn into oil on my face no matter what. I'll give it another go though.

6. Jouer Moisturizing lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
    Love it!
