Birchbox December 2012

Hello Gorgeous!
I got my December Birchbox today. I had forgotten that I still hadn't received it this month so it was a lovely surprise. I didn't even check my account to see ahead of time what I was being sent so it was nice not knowing ahead of time. Lets jump into what I got this month.


- Frownies Eye Gels (Size: 1 set)
Cactus collagen improves circulation and reduces puffiness, while arbutin combats hyperpigmentation and dark circles. Meanwhile, aloe vera and vitamins C and E increase radiance and slow the aging process, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles over time. Full size contains 3 sets and has a retail value $29.95

- Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream (Size: .17 oz / 5 ml)
Free of harsh toxins, this eco-conscious CC cream uses natural and organic ingredients to protect and treat skin. It’s part tinted mineral sunscreen—the SPF 30 formula contains 20 percent zinc oxide—and part antioxidant serum, thanks to infusions of grape-derived resveratrol, vitamin C, and fruit stem cells. The actives work together to reverse cellular DNA damage (translation: less noticeable lines and wrinkles), and the formula is designed with all skin types in mind. Full size is 1.7 oz and has a retail value of $39.00

-Nick Chavez Beverly Hills Advanced Volume Shampoo (Size: 2 oz / 59 ml)
The star of this shampoo is the exclusive Expansion Technology, which features one of our favorite moisturizers: hyaluronic acid. Keratin and soy protein give hair added strength, while UV protectants help prevent further damage. Full size is 237 ml and has a retail value of $22.00

- Cartier Baiser Vole Eau de Parfum (Size: Small Vial)
Dreamed up by in-house Cartier perfumer Mathilde Laurent, this unique fragrance focuses on a single floral scent: lilies. Notes of lily blossoms, fresh buds, and the flower’s green leaves slowly unfold, leaving a soft, powdery scent in their wake. Full size is 50 ml and has a retail value of $100.00

- ModelCo Shine Ultra Lip Gloss in Strip Tease (Size: 4 ml)
These lush hues can be worn alone or layered over bolder lipsticks. It stays put for hours, without ever feeling heavy. Full size is 4 ml and has a retail value of $16.00

- Cartier Declaraion D'un Soir (Size: Small Vial)
The prefect blend of spice and wood notes, this chic scent features an alluring cocktail of spicy pepper and earthy sandalwood, with subtle touches of sweet rose. This was my bonus this month and it is for a birchbox man. Full size is 3.3 oz and has a retail value of $105.00

- Rent The Runway (Discount Code)
Choose the perfect look for your special occasion. Select a date up to 6 months in advance and rent for 4 to 8 days for 10 - 15% of the retail price. They send a second size for free with next day delivery within the U.S., same day delivery in NYC and they even ship to hotels. After you are done then just drop the pre-paid envelop in any mailbox. They handle the dry cleaning. Discount card sent is for $50 off your dress rental of $125 or more. Discount code is BRCHBX50.

Overall I think it was a decent box. I wasn't too impressed with anything in particular, wish it would have wowed me more but you can't have a winner every time. What did you dolls receive this month? I'd love to hear from you guys!

Until next time, take care <3
