Birchbox December 2017 {On the Dot, Off the Cuff}

Bioderma Sensible H2O Make-Up Removing Micelle Solution
Full Size Price: $14.90
Sample size value is approximately: $0.59
This is a no rinse makeup remover that claims to smooth and cleanse skin using micelle technology and cucumber extract. To use the product, you simply soak a cotton pad and gently use on your face. I found that this worked very well at removing my makeup, even my waterproof mascara. It does not carry a scent that I could not notice and it did not irritate my skin in any way. I would purchase the full size version of this product.

Aveda damage remedy daily hair repair
Full Size Price: $30.00
Sample size value is approximately: $13.23
This is a leave-in treatment for your hair that claims to instantly repair while also helping to protect and detangle. To use this product you use a small amount and work into your hair while it is still damp. Brush and style as usual. The scent of this product is on the floral/citrus side. I didn't really care for the smell but did find the product worked well at detangling my hair and giving it a shiny complexion. I would consider purchasing the full size if it came in other scents.

Love of Color Liquid Shimmer Shadow in the shade "Eclipse"
Full Size Price: $10.00
This is a liquid shimmer eyeshadow that claims to have a crease free formula. To use you simply apply directly to the eye lid and then blend out, you can layer it for a more intense look. The shade I received is a beautiful metallic rose gold color that is truly stunning and highly pigmented. I did find the application process to have a bit of a learning curve because while it is wet, if you move your eye lid it can smudge. Overall, it is a unique product and is a beautiful color. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product.

Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
Full Size Price: $85.00
Sample size value is approximately: $13.60
This is a brightening serum that contains vitamins C and E, as well as a blend of antioxidants that claim to fade dark spots, tighten pores, and plump skin. The formula is light on the skin and it carries a nice citrus scent. I feel like with any product like this, you need more testing time and a larger product sample to fully attest to any claims. I would be interested in purchasing the full size of this product.

M-A-C Cosmetics False Lashes Mascara in shade "Extreme Black"
Full Size Price: $23.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.30
This is a mascara that has a brush designed to deliver volume, curl, and lengthen lashes. The formula itself is highly pigmented and applies to the lashes with ease without any clumping issues. I would purchase the full size of this product.

Bonus Product:
Birchbox Eyelash Curler
Full Size Price: $13.00
This month I received a bonus product! This is an eyelash curler from Birchbox that is extremely high quality and can be warmed with a blow dryer to give your lashes an extra long lasting curl. I really love this product and was quite excited since I really needed a new one!

My December Birchbox is valued at $52.72 with the bonus item included, and $39.72 without.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so this gives me an additional value of $29.72 to $42.72.

Overall, I really enjoyed this month's box. It is one of the better ones I have received this year but I can say that as a whole, I found this years box options to be some of my overall least favorites. I am really hoping to see a better selection for the upcoming year! My favorite product from this month's box was the eyelash curler.
