*Old review from when I was unable to post reviews for a while*
This is my last Birchbox. I just don’t need more beauty samples. I don’t use enough of them. My initial plan was to keep it for a year. This makes a year. So, I’m canceling now. I want to try other boxes that I may get more use out of since I just don’t use that many beauty products.
The box this month is semi-christmasy. It looks like it has a snow design in silver on a white lid. The bottom is bright green, though. So, that’s odd but still pretty.
The blue tissue paper is super clashy, though.
I’m not impressed with this box but that is okay since it is my last one anyway. *shrug*
It isn’t that the products have anything wrong with them. One even seems to be a full size product. There are two different oils, though. Which kind of is annoying but eh.
Protect & Oil
This is a hair oil that smells really good. I may actually use this very sparingly. It smells really good. I don’t know how hair oil will do in my hair, though. We shall see. It’s a small sample but since my hair isn’t that dry right now I don’t imagine I will need much each use.
styleEYES Eyeshadow Palette – formalEyes
Two eyeshadow shades in a little case thingy. One is a matte pale pink/peachy color. The other is a dark shimmery reddish color that goes on pretty light. On it looks like a shimmery pink that barely shows a color on my skin. I’ll keep this for sure.
Coconut Sheer Oil
This looks like a full size product. It says it is for hair, skin, makeup removal and more. It seems to be, based on smell and feel, just actual plain coconut oil. Which I buy big jars of. So….I don’t need this but I mean..it’s cool to get a full size product, I suppose. I’ll gift this one though or trade it.
Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray
Spray made to give your hair a “tassled” look. My hair has it’s own tassled look. So, not needing this but I’m sure I can find it a new home.
Moisturizing Skin Cream
A small sample of a highly moisturizing cream. The smell is kind of strong and medicinal smelling. It says it is free of artificial dyes and fragrances. So, I guess the smell is from one of the ingredients (smells camphor-y). I’ll keep it because I always need moisturizing things.
There was also a $10 coupon code for the Birchbox store. Which I used along with my 400 Birchbox points I had saved up to get two full sized Benefit products and one mini Benefit product for $4. Which was pretty awesome.
While the last box wasn’t great the $10 coupon code and cashing in my points was pretty cool. I’ll probably get my Benefit products after Christmas. Which will be a nice late gift to myself.
