The holiday’s are officially closing in on us and the new year is quickly approaching, and keeping up to par is my favorite beauty sample subscription box, which has made its official appearance and with its arrival landed beauty samples that are sure to highlight the spirited, glamorous and edgiest styles in us all, and at the same time BirchBox, has delivered an enticing box full of cheer to toast the holiday’s with glamour. Samples included are centered around being chic and jolly with attitude. For the month of December I chose to opt-out of receiving the traditional hand selected by BirchBox monthly box, and opted-in for the Party-Ready box that was curated by Lo Bosworth. The variety in the Lo Bosworth for BirchBox Party-Ready box, is impeccable and gets one ready from head-to-toe. For those who might not be aware about the BirchBox Sample Choice option, for the past few months BirchBox, has been giving their subscribers a little more control over their monthly boxes, by allowing subscribers to select one sample to be added to their box for that month. So BirchBox, is allowing subscribers to pick one of the 4 to 5 samples that you will receive in your box, or you can select a special curated box. The sample choice option does not cost extra, and one still pays the monthly cost of $10.00. Definitely an option I approve of, and if you like being surprise you still have the option of keeping a lid on it, and let BirchBox surprise you with the regular, but still enticing, adventurous, beautiful monthly box.
So, onto the BirchBox December 2014 box reveal of the Lo Bosworth Party-Ready box, here are the fun, chic and holiday ready products that were included. The Lo Bosworth Party- Ready box, features products that have that seductive yet enchanting holiday red.The box also features samples to help one tackle last-minute to plan holiday looks. This special curated edition box featured a mixture of products that range from skin care, makeup to fragrance. All one needs to do is put their party attire on, and you’re off to your holiday festivities.
Product 1 Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré *
Full-size $16.00 or $28.00
The first product featured in my December 2014 BirchBox Lo Bosworth edition, is one of my favorite moisturizers Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré, is a great versatile moisturizer. I have been able to incorporate this moisturizer into my daily skin care, beauty, and makeup routine. From creating cream eye shadows, to using as a make-up remover, and as a great moisturizer the uses and results are phenomenal. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré, is on My Top Picks list, because it is not only a great multi-taker, but is great for my sensitive skin, yet effective enough in giving my skin just the right amount of hydration throughout the year for a refreshed look.
Product 2 Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum *
Full size $98.00
Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum is a soft, light, and fresh fragrance.This fragrance contains notes such as rose, mandarin, and sandalwood. I like that this fragrance is fresh, yet very feminine, and not overpowering. The fragrance Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum, has a citrus scent, with hints of a floral, and a slight powder fragrance.
Full size $10.00
A notable brand of nail polish that Birchbox subscribers know all too well. I love the brand Ruffian, because it’s the only brand of nail polish that I have been introduced to, that I can get away with apply one coat of their nail lacquer and that is all that is needed. Ruffian nail lacquer colors are not only beautiful, but they are long-lasting. The color Ruffian Red is a genuine true daring red.
Full size $20.00
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in the color Heartthrob, is one of my favorite lip stains that I have received from BirchBox so far. I love the consistency. When applying Cynthia Rowley’s Creamy lip stain, the quality is beyond great in my opinion. This lip stain goes on smooth, and last for a long while without needing to reapply. I like that this lip stain actually makes my lips look, and feel hydrated with just the right amount of classic shine. The color is buildable, and looks great whether I applied one coat for a subtle look, or a few coats for a richer and deeper color.
Full size $39.50
Davines Replumping Hair Filler Superactive, is a mist/spray that contains Hyaluronic acid, which the brands says is used to make hair healthy. Davines promises and states, that their Replumping Hair Filler Superactive, will not only help moisturize hair, but in addition is supposed to strengthen, as well as plump hair, leaving your hair not only appearing thicker, but also shiny.
Davines Replumping Hair Filler Superactive shampoo, and Conditioner was a part of the BirchBox Bonus sample. Both the shampoo and conditioner is stated by Davines hair care line to help plump ones hair, and help boost moisture to dry hair. The conditioner has the added perk of being a detangler, and same as the shampoo hydrates ones hair. The conditioner contains an ingredient named petitgrain essential oil, which Davines states adds elasticity to ones hair.
And, that was my BirchBox December 2014 Box Reveal. As usual great products to help bring a little glam and sparkle to the month. Products that are not only fabulous, but products that are also versatile. I love the variety and brands that were featured in this great special edition box by Lo Bosworth for BirchBox. The December box definitely came with some old favorites and definitely some new favorites.
