The theme of the December box was "Holiday 2013". Here's what my Birchbox contained:
Color Club | Nail Polish - Dark 'N Stormy: The sample size is great and the price is too. The color is a bit dark for my tastes. I have received a lot of nail polish samples and it's kind of getting old. Full Size: $8
Manna Kadar Cosmetics | Sheer Glo in Birchbox Love: Use this for a "dewy, fresh-from-the-spa glow." Maybe I'll use it next time I want to look like I'm from Panem. The color was not for me...at all. Full Size: $29
Number 4 | Non Aerosol Hairspray: I have sampled a shampoo from this line of products in a previous Bircbox and I wasn't really impressed with it, so I wasn't excited to see another Number 4 product. It's hairspray. And I'm not spending $30 on it!! Full Size: $30
bliss | that's incredi-'peel': I won't be buying this. Full Size: $58 - not $49 as listed on the card enclosed in the box.
Overall, this month's Birchbox was totally unimpressive. I just wasn't excited about much in the box at all. Hopefully the January box is an improvement on the last couple boxes. I've now received over 20 boxes. I still think the "good" contents outweigh the "not so good" or even "bad" that I have received.
