Birchbox December 2013

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $10/month

I received my December Birchbox and I already knew what would be inside because I had checked my account. This month's theme was Holiday 2013. The packaging was very festive this month! Here's what I got.

Birchbox always includes an information card telling the theme and the products included.

The first item I received was Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle. This spray is a leave in conditioner that you spray onto damp hair before styling. It locks in color, protects from heat damage, and adds silkiness. I've tried the shampoo and conditioner from this brand in a previous box and loved it! And as expected, I also love this spray. It made my hair very soft and manageable and actually added volume. I have a hard time finding products that add volume to my fine, limp hair, so I am very happy about this. Plus the scent is my favorite! I will be purchasing every product by Beauty Protector!!!

The next item was La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes. These are biodegradable, vitamin E packed wipes that erase all traces of makeup without drying. I can't wait to try these. Last night would have been the perfect opportunity, because I fell asleep on the couch while watching a movie without washing my face, but instead of using these I ended up going to bed without taking my makeup off. Whoops. These will come in handy for nights like that though.

I also received LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencil. I believe I received the Ring of Fire color. I couldn't find the color on the packaging, but it looks closest to that color. It's megawatt color and lip nourishing vitamin E with an easy to wield crayon applicator. This color is a bit too bright for my liking, but I'm going to try to pull it off over the holidays! I do love how easy it is to apply and the texture of it.

The item I was most excited to try was The Honest Company Organic Healing Balm. Use on irritated skin, eczema, minor cuts and scrapes, or anywhere that needs hydration. I've tried other products from The Honest Company and I was sure I would love this! It was a bit greasy when I first put it on, but it moisturized my hands very nicely. The scent was soft and nice. The sample size was generous, so I'm happy I get to try it for awhile before deciding to buy.

The lifestyle extra included was Twistband Metallic Hair Tie. I received the silver sparkle color. Use it to dress up a low key pony, or wear on your wrist for extra shimmer. I own Twistbands already and wear them a lot. This will be a nice color to add to my collection!

I was very happy with my Birchbox this month. I will use everything! I also loved the packaging this month. It made it a little more exciting to open the box!
