December Birchbox

posted on: Wednesday, January 13, 2016

I was recently offered the chance to try out a Birchbox subscription. I was really excited because I really enjoyed the Birchbox and Rifle Paper Co. collaboration that I tested out back in April. I'm late on posting the December Birchbox, but better late than never right? Anyway, I was thrilled with the December box! I have been wanting to try more products from Amika, and I've heard a lot about Sunday Riley, so I was really excited about these two products. I also Love Tati (Glam Life Guru) on YouTube, so I was pretty excited about her LOC lip colour too. Here is a short recap of the products:

Love of Colour (LOC) Matte Lipstick in Glam Life
This lipstick is in a lip pencil form, which I really love because it is so easy to apply. The matte formula is really nice and I love the colour! It's also paraben and cruelty free. The shade I received was Glam Life, which is a plum colour that reminds me of MAC Rebel. 

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
I have a hair spray by Amika and have been in search for the Amika texturizing spray, so I was pretty excited to try out the dry shampoo. I have been carrying this dry shampoo in my bag at work to give my hair a refresh during the day if it starts to feel flat. It also claims not to leave a residue behind which I agree with and love!

Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment
I have been testing this out in the mornings a s serum and I have fallen in love. It is meant to reduce fine lines and wrinkes, even skin tone, hydrate and firm. I'm not sure if it has reduced my fine lines, but so far my skin has felt hydrated and firm when I use this. 

Juara Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm
This is a multi-task balm that can be used as a hand lotion or cuticles. I really enjoy the coconut scent. 

Kate Spade Live Colorfully fragrance
Finally, this scent by Kate Spade is described as having vibrant notes of Hawaiian flowers, Tahitian vanilla and mandarin. I think this scent would be perfect for spring and summer.

So there is a short recap of the December Birchbox. I also want to mention how adorable the packaging was for December! It reminded me of tinsel and snow. Do you have a beauty box subscription? Have you discovered a holy grail product from a beauty subscription? Let me know in the comments below!
