December Birchbox!

Looking for a fun, creative holiday gift for someone special in your life? Check out Birchbox! I've been a subscriber for about a year now and I look so forward to seeing what's in my Birchbox every month. I think most women would feel the same way, and luckily for men, Birchbox even has a subscription option for them! Let me give you an idea of what you can expect each month as I unbox my December shipment, which just arrived yesterday:

The first thing that caught my eye in this month's box was the cute little Benefit Cosmetics it's potent! eye cream. The description says the cream is peptide-infused and can help you feign 8 hours of sleep. I need this badly!! Full-size price $32

Next up I noticed a cool looking full-size lip gloss with a built in mirror from ModelCo, a brand I'm not too familiar with. I'm not sure yet if the peachy color is something I'll wear regularly but I'm still looking forward to trying out this award-winning gloss from the Australian brand. Retail price $16

My eyes then landed on a little red bag that looked to contain some sort of chocolate, score! I quickly realized what I had was in fact a dark chocolate peppermint fortune cookie from Emily's Chocolates. I actually ate it for breakfast and it was complete yumminess!! Evidently it's one of their top holiday goodies and I can see why! Box of 6, $5.99

Next up, I unwrapped the last couple of samples that were snuggled together inside some pink tissue paper. Inside was a sample of Juicy Couture's signature fragrance, something I've actually purchased in the past and know I love! It's a blend of sweet and floral notes, sophisticated and feminine, perfect for day OR night. I tend to like all of their fragrances, even though I never gave into the terry track suit trend :) Full size ranges from $19-89

Also inside the pink tissue wrapping was 2 sample packets of Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect. I'm a huge Kerastase fan but have yet to try this particular product so I'm looking forward to it! It's  a leave-in cream that repairs damage from chemical processing and protects strands from the effects of heat styling, things my hair is all too familiar with! Full-size $42

Then, as a bonus, Birchbox also added in a $50 gift card to Rent the Runway! Awesome! I'm very familiar with their site and service but have yet to utilize it, maybe this will entice me just enough?? :)
