Birchbox | December 2014 - Review

december-2014-birchbox-samples-review

Hello, beauties! The year has flown by so fast, hasn't it? Seems like just yesterday when I received my first Birchbox. However, it's now December, and with that comes the final box of the year. This month's theme is Decked Out, and is packed with all the products you need to get holiday party ready. From hair to makeup to the perfect soiree scent, December's box will have you prepped and primed for all your year end events!

• Acure Organics Sensitive Facial Cleanser | Full-Size, $14.99 (Sample, $2.50)
The first step in any beauty routine is a clean face. My skin is a bit sensitive, so I don't need to put it through the ringer any more than necessary. This particular cleanser is free of harsh nasties, so it's perfect for getting my face in shape before a big night out. I'm not a fan of the scent, but I love the Acure Organics Day Cream, so this is worth giving a shot.

• Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara | Full-Size, $23.00 (Sample, $8.00)
I'm no stranger to the They're Real mascara, and it gets plenty of love in my makeup rotation. This mascara definitely adds length to my short, baby lashes. Perfect for those eye popping looks, this is going straight into my holiday travel bag!

• Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm | Full-Size, $36.00 (Sample, $4.80)
When it comes to BB creams, you can't do better than Dr. Jart+. Especially if you have pale skin like I do. And after a long night filled with friends, family and holiday cocktails, BB creams are the perfect way to make your face look awake and refreshed. I currently use the Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm, so I'm excited to try another offering from the brand. I just wish this sample wasn't so small so it could be given a proper test.

• English Laundry Signature for Her | Full-Size, $20.00-$90.00 (Sample, $4.11)
Every party look is best finished off by that perfect signature scent. With it's blend of floral and woodsy notes, English Laundry's aptly named Signature for Her will be enticing loads of guys under the mistletoe this holiday season! It reminds me of a more complex version of Britney Spears' Fantasy perfume, which is a long time favorite of mine. I'm planning on wearing this to the Christmas Eve party at my in-laws.

• TONI&GUY Prep Heat Protection Mist | Full-Size, $15.00 (Sample, $7.59)
Now THIS is a sample! With all the party looks we do over a holiday season, our hair is more than put through its paces. To keep our tresses in tip top shape, a heat protectant is a must. And if you have dyed hair like me, you'll know that a good protectant will help keep color fade at bay. I foresee this TONI&GUY spray getting a proper workout this Christmas and New Year's.

TOTAL BOX VALUE: $27.00

All in all, I'm thoroughly impressed with the December box. Birchbox certainly ended the year with a bang! I've got all the bits and bobs I'll need to ring in a very beautiful new year. I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for my favorite subscription box!

What's been your favorite Birchbox sample this year? Will you be getting a Birchbox subscription in 2015?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!
