Birchbox Review December 2013!!

Today I'm going to be showing you guys what I got in my Birchbox this month! This is going up a bit later, but that's because I actually had a problem with my box, and I wanted to email them about it and get it all taken care of before I reviewed it.

Birchbox is only $10 a month and they send a nice selection of sample sized makeup, skincare, hair care, nail polish. A lot of the times, I discover new brands thanks to Birchbox, so I always look forward to their boxes!

They changed their boxes this month to make them more Christmasey and I love it!

There was a lot of paper this month. Their info cards, a card about their mobile app, and a card about Cynthia Rowley's makeup line.

The first item is The Honest Company Organic Healing Balm. This is .75 oz and goes for $3.23. I really liked this! I think it hepled my dry skin and I could totally see myself buying a full size of this! I will admit though, I'm continually impressed with everything I've tried by The Honest Company, especially their diapers (they are literally the best diapers in the world.)

The next item is a Number 4 Non Aerosol Hairspray. This is 1 oz and goes for $4.50. I don't use hairspray, so I'll be passing this along to my mom, however this does say that it won't make hair crunchy so that's a plus.

The next item is a Twistband hair tie. This foes for $2.33. I love Twistbands! They are the only type of hair ties I'll use. They hold well and they don't make my hair all creasy. Plus I love the design on this one, it looks like lace!

The last item is Hello by Harvey Prince. This goes for $2.95. I really wanted to try Skinny Chic by him, but I do like this fragrance. I can't quite name the individual notes, but it smells a lot like Justin Beiber's first fragrance, Someday (my little sister is obsessed with him, so I smell this almost everyday.) It's nice, but I'm not sure that it's something I'd buy.

All totaled my box is worth $13.01. Plus I got 100 points ($10) because my box was missing an item (the Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo, which of course happened to be the product I was most looking forward to). My box is okay this month, even though I love the Healing Balm and the Twistband, I'm still pretty meh about it overall. However I'd still totally recommend Birchbox for their awesome customer service, points system, and I usually love my boxes a lot more then I did this month! (:
