My First Birchbox Review- December Box

Happy Wednesday! For Christmas, I was gifted a 3-month Birchbox subscription. I have loved getting them in the mail and I am even more exited to tell you my thoughts!

This product had a neat concept, but it just wasn't for me. You are supposed to apply this face gloss on your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose to create a dewy glow. The first problem was that I didn't know how to apply it. It was also extremely goopy and sticky. It felt like I had syrup on my face. It may just be me, but I was not satisfied with this product.

At first, I really liked this eyeshadow. And I still do, but I did have an issue with it. I loved its smooth and easy application. It looks like a crayon. The On Point shade was gold and sparkly which I loved. My problem was that as I was applying it to my other eyelid, the tip broke off and I could no longer use it very effectively. Maybe I was applying too hard?

I have heard amazing things about amika, so when I tried this mask, my expectations were pretty high. The best part is that my expectations were fulfilled! I loved this mask! You apply it to the ends of your hair and let it sit for a few minutes just like other conditioners. It smelled amazing and worked really well. I don't think that I would actually purchase the full size because the conditioner that I already use works almost as well. Overall, it was great!

This product is a cream that is supposed to moisturize and hydrate skin while still being lightweight. I liked this product and I think it worked well. I have normal to dry skin and in these dry winter months, I need lots of moisture. This cream just didn't do it for me for now. I loved how lightweight and how quickly it absorbed into my skin. I would use this during the summer when I don't need as much moisture.

I liked this perfume. It smells fresh and bright. I wouldn't say that I was highly impressed, though. It smelled nice is all that I can say about it.

I loved this candle! It burnt well and it smells SO AMAZING! It is light, rich, and luxurious smelling. Loved it!
