Birchbox arrived with a silver embossed lid and in crisp bright colors this month. Inside, I found a little bit of everything:
Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+ in Light/Medium
I tried this CC cream as soon as I could and I found it to be comparable to many BB creams that I’ve tried before. The coverage is light and it’s really perfect for those no-makeup makeup days.
Silhouette by Christian Siriano Eau de Parfum
After some pulling and twisting and tugging, I finally managed to open this little sample of Christian Siriano’s first fragrance. I would consider it a classic, feminine scent suitable for a night out, but not especially noteworthy.
Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum
Avène has really been showing up in my subscription boxes these past few months. I’ve recently received a body oil and a moisture mask, both of which I enjoyed trying. Hopefully, I feel the same about this serum.
Coastal Scents® styleEYES Palette Glamour Eyes Sampler
I actually chose this sample when the time for our sample selection came around last month. The teal in this duo really caught my eye. Both shades are very pigmented with a satin finish, though they are also a bit powdery. The color on the right was a really nice surprise, not entirely gold, but almost the color of a freshly minted penny.
Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist
The scent of this product is so fresh and light and I would definitely love for that smell to linger in my hair, but the fact that I don’t find much use for texturizing/styling sprays might hinder that. I’ll try it when I get the chance anyway, and see if it really does anything for me.
$10 Birchbox Voucher
Birchbox included a holiday gift this month, a unique $10 discount code toward any $35+ purchase. Since I was intending to buy something from the Birchbox Shop soon anyhow, this is a great inclusion.
Excluding the voucher, I would consider this a pretty typical box from Birchbox. The CC cream and the eyeshadow duo are the two items that I think I will get the most use out of.
