December Birchbox 2012 Unboxing

I got my Birchbox last Tuesday, filmed this video the next day (at the beau's place), and I planned on uploading this video on Friday. Didn't quite work out that way though. My schedule has been a little crazy with jewelry orders, outings, and I had to vend at an event last Tuesday. So today was the first day that I really had time to post. So, finally, here's my December Birchbox.

Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique (2 samples) Full size retails for $42

ModelCo Shine Ultra Lip gloss (full size in Strip Tease) Retails for $16

November 2012 Naturebox Unboxing

Last month I was contacted by Naturebox (a monthly subscription box that offers full size healthy snacks for $19.95/mo) and they asked if I'd be interested in reviewing their box. Of course I said yes! I am a big snacker and I try to keep most of my pretty healthy. Plus, I'm always looking for new snacks to try so I was really excited to get the opportunity to try Naturebox. I got the box about a week later and couldn't wait to open it!

Check the video to see exactly what I got!

from l to r:

 Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds
Country Ranch Peas
Carrot Chips
Chipotle Maple Almonds
Cinnamon Spiced Granola

Since the video I have had the chance to sample all of the snacks and I thought they were really good. My favorites were the almonds, granola and the pumpkin seeds.  Overall I think this is a great box to try, especially if you love healthy snacks or if you want to start switching out some that junk food. And as I said in the video, you could easily spend $20 on this amount of product at the store so I believe Naturebox is well worth $19.95.
Naturebox is offering a 25% discount on your first month's subscription with the promo code CARROT. This discount applies to the month to month subscription only. If you buy the 6 month option you'll get one month free. And the 12 month option gets you 3 free months.
Let me know if you give it a try.
