Benta Berry G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser. Everything was is French so I had to look up what this was. As the name implies it’s a facial scrub. It has a nice smell and the granules seem to exfoliate nicely without being too rough.
Manna Kadar Shimmer Glo. A shimmer lotion, it’s a peachy-pink color with goldish shimmer. At first I was like ‘seriously, who has used shimmer lotion since 1997!?’. But once you blend it in it becomes a nice highlighter/illuminizer. Not glittery just a nice subtle glow.
Twistband Hair Tie. I have actually been wanting to try these. They are not supposed to leave that bump in your hair like regular elastic hair ties do. But what I’m disappointed about is the pattern. I don’t like it and won’t ever where it. Orange seahorses aren’t my thing I guess, trade anybody? (Full-size product)
Kat Burki Signature Cody Crème in Tuberose. Fancy looking little glass sample. The smell is OK, I would call it old fashioned though. I can’t really see myself smelling like that. But it moisturizers nicely.
Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray. I haven’t actually used this yet so I don’t know if it works. But it is a nice sized sample and have a nice smell.
Everyone also got a ‘Birchbox goes mobile’ digimate. It’s a little sticky piece of screen cleaning cloth that sticks to your phone. You can pull it off, clean your screen, and stick it back on your phone. It’s a nice little extra, but I probably won’t use it (well I won’t stick it to my phone, I’ll just use it to clean off my screen).
I’m still having that love hate relationship with Birchbox. I felt a little disappointed this month since it is December (holidays) and I was expecting the best box ever. I didn’t get that vibe, I didn’t even get a holiday vibe at all from my box. Except from the box it’s self it was really cute and holiday themed. Sometimes I feel I just get leftovers (ahem, seahorse hair tie). The box wasn’t a total flop though like in previous months. There were nice sized samples and neat products.
What was in your box this month?
