I am loving this box. This one is one of their pre-customized boxes (you can choose what kind of box you want each month!), so I knew what was coming but Birchbox has noticeably been getting better and better. They’ve improved their customization process so boxes are becoming more personalized each month. Plus, this month they included a few holiday goodies for everyone that were fun little bonuses!


Price: $10/month

Box Type: Beauty products, 5-6 deluxe samples

Why you’ll love it: Top brands, good sized samples of solid products. Their new customization process learns what you like so when you review your boxes on birchbox.com you’ll guarantee more personalized boxes. Plus, you can pick a sample you’d love to see in your box or select a pre-made box instead of leaving it to chance!

Let’s see what was inside the box I chose this month:

This mirror was a freebie that everyone got in their box this month. I like to keep a little pocket mirror in my purses, so this is great!
Also included in each box was this super cute sheet of cut out gift tags! I did not buy tags this year for gifts so I will actually use these (thanks for saving me a trip to Target, Birchbox).

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Rocky Steady (full-size, $10) I really love this color!!! It looks great with my brown eyes. We’ve gotten LOC products from Birchbox in the past and they’re always great. I can’t tell if this is a full sized one or not – if it’s not, it’s pretty big for a sample. This thing will last me a long time.

Rene Furterer Lumicia Shampoo & Conditioner (full-size, $22-24) – I love shampoo/conditioner samples, especially multi-use ones that aren’t little foil packs. This duo is meant to remove any styling buildup, leaving hair glossy and volumized. Yes, please.

Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream (full-size, $88) Gotta love that price tag, it’s not often we get samples from really high end products! This skin cream fixes broken capillaries to make your skin more radiant.

IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer (full-size, $28) This SPF 15 primer has a little pearl powder in it to give your complexion a subtle shimmery finish whether you put foundation over it or only use the primer.

Final Rating: A

I really liked this box. I knew what I was getting, so there were no surprises this month except for how much I love the LOC stick. It’s even prettier in person, I can’t wait to use it again! I also really liked the cute freebies they included.
