I have two Birchbox accounts. I have signed up on two different emails. I love Birchbox! It is one of the oldest subscription boxes out there. The boxes are so cute and they come with awesome brands. I have discovered many favorite brands through this service. Every month they allow you to pick one of your samples or opt for the guest editor/featured box. On one of my accounts I opted for the featured box. The December featured box was called “Winter Essentials” and was filled with products to get you through the holidays. This box usually ships faster as well. 

Cost: $10.00/month

Ships: To US, France, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom

Bonus: Use Code SUBSCRIBENOW50 to get $5 (50 points) to spend in the Birchbox shop


The box definitely reminds me of winter and I love it. I couldn’t wait to dig in and see what all was inside!


Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Peach

This is a very small sample. I have received this sample in another subscription box. It really isn’t my favorite product. It barely shows up and just isn’t a flattering shade with my skin tone. I will be giving this away.


Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Duo in formalEYES

This is a sample size. I am so impressed with the pigmentation of these shadows. They are stunning. Coastal Scents has really stepped up their game. I need to buy the FULL SIZE palette! I love the green and gold shades and will use them to create a festive holiday look.



eSalon Perfect Ending Leave In Conditioner

This is a sample size. I have tried this product before and was not a huge fan. It really didn’t condition my hair that well. I will be giving this away.


Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub 

This is a sample size. I am a huge fan of derma e products. They are so affordable yet amazing. I love that this scrub contains Dead Sea salt. I can’t wait to try it.


Juara Coconut Illipe Hand and Nail Balm

This is a sample size. I love hand creams and this is perfect for winter. I can’t wait to use it.



Bonus: Chuao Choclatier Cinnamon Cereal Smooch & Birchbox Coupon

This is a sample size. I thought the chocolate was okay. It wasn’t really that amazing and I wouldn’t buy more. I can’t wait to use my $10 off coupon and will mostly likely use it on the FULL SIZE Coastal Scents palette.


This was a pretty good box and definitely fit the winter theme. I am so excited about the eye shadows and am very impressed with the pigmentation.  Birchbox is an awesome subscription at only $10/month. I discover so many awesome products through Birchbox. There were 6 products to review so that is essentially $6 to spend in the Birchbox shop. I love that Birchbox has an amazing point system. For every sample you review, you earn 10 points. Once you reach 100 points, you can redeem them for $10 to spend in the Birchbox shop. Therefore, this box was really only $5 if I review every product. I will continue subscribing to Birchbox. What did you receive in your Birchbox? What do you think of this month’s featured box?
