December & January Birchbox.

Birchbox had a slight issue with getting a lot of people's December Birchboxes out on time, but they were very apologetic and even gave us 100 Birchbox points! That's $10 off of a full size product!

Favorite Item: Oscar Blandi dry shampoo. This stuff beats out my $3 Suave dry shampoo any day. It works so well I'm tempted to spend the $25 on it. Hey, I would get $10 off!

Not a fan of: Atelier Cologne in Ambre Nue. Too heavy for me. Just not my style.

Scared to try: Nuxe Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer. #1 - I don't want my body to be shimmery. #2 - If I put it in my hair, it would make it oily 100x faster than it already does.

I can't get this stupid photo to turn the right way. Grr.
Favorite item: ALL OF THEM. Seriously, best box I've gotten so far.

Let's start out with the tasty treat, the Larabar in Carrot Cake. I don't even eat carrot cake at parties, but I scarfed this down instantly.

The Archipelago pomegranate soap smells AMAZING and it doesn't dry out my skin like most bar soaps.

Clark's Botanicals smoothing marine cream is pretty good. I only say pretty good because I do not feel any exfoliation going on, nor do I feel any tingling. Bonus: The initials on the top of the jar are Cameron's. :)

Juicy Couture's signature fragrance is light, sweet and flirty, and the sample even has a little pump on it so you can actually spray it, rather than dab it on your wrist. It's the little things that make me happy, people.

And the grand finale (to me, anyway) is the Stila smudge stick waterproof eyeliner in a shimmery midnight blue color. Eyeliner is my one thing I have to have one before going out in public so I was super pumped about this pick.

  4. Booo I still haven't gotten my Birchbox! I hope I get that pomegranate soap. I used that shimmer stuff on my cheeks once, it was ok...

  5. Have you tried the Pssst! dry shampoo? It's pretty cheap and it works like a charm!

  6. I swear by the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo!! It's incredible. They have sets of two on Gilt pretty often- they last forever too!
