My December Birchbox

The theme of this month's Birchbox was of course holiday. It came in an extra cute box that I almost didn't recognize it. There wasn't a description about the items they chose for the month. It was definitely an eclectic mix of products. Here's what I received:

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (2.5 fl oz/6.8 fl oz $14) | Supersmile Ultimate Lip Treatment in Vanilla Almond (.04 oz/.15 oz $24) | Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion in Birchbox Love (.27 oz/1 fl oz $29) | Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy in Morelia Monarch (.25 oz/1.35 oz $4.99) | Ahmad Tea London 3 Assorted Tea Bags

"This restorative cream moisturizes and nourishes through the careful blending of Glycerine, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Almond Oil, and Botanical Extracts." With the cold weather upon us here on the East Coast, I'm in desperate need of a moisturizing hand lotion and this one is quite delightful!

"This liquid illuminator subtly reflects light to make skin look fresh and youthful. Plus, the extra-fine shimmer particles won’t settle in fine lines—they actually soften the look of wrinkles." This looked more like a blush to me and not sure why'd I want it all over my face. It has a nice shimmer but would use it to highlight around my cheeks.

So tiny!

"The maker's of the #1 whitening toothpaste bring you the most advanced lip technology for the ultimate smile care experience. Our patented H5X® replenishing complex incorporates Amino Acids, Marine Filling Spheres, Collagen Microspheres, Boswellia Oli and Hylauronic Acid to provide a truly ultimate lip treatment that hydrates, exfoliates, nourishes, conditions, and restores." Interesting that a toothpaste maker made a lip balm. Wasn't anything impressive to me but I always enjoy a lip balm sample to toss in my purse.

I found this product a little odd in a December beauty box as sea salt sprays are usually used in the summer to create beach waves. Not really interested in beach waves when it's 20 degrees out. So stay tuned for a review on this product when the weather gets warmer.

What did you receive in your Birchbox this month?
