Unboxing: Birchbox December 2015

I think I'm reaching the end of my Birchbox love affair. I need to figure out when my yearly subscription is over and I think I'm done. I just have more samples then I could use and seriously if they don't stop sending me hair items, I'm going to lose it. You've got a few months to redeem yourself here Birchbox!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Birchbox it is one of those monthly beauty sample boxes where they send you a box of 5-6 (sometimes even 7 with bonus extras) samples and deluxe samples. Occasionally there will be full size products too! The brands they send are all fairly high-end and they have a point system and customer service staff that just can't be beat. For $10 a month you are able to select a sample from a select group of choices and have more surprises delivered to you based on your beauty profile! Have I convinced you to sign up yet? If so I would love it if you would do it through my referral link here! Feel free to also go to if you want to look around without any strings attached to me.
The theme for December 2015 is All Wrapped Up.
Benefit They're Real! Tinted Primer
Full Size Value: $24 | Sample Size Value: $8
How did I not even know this was a thing? Granted I'm not crazy over mascara primers, I just don't get them because I really don't see any results but hey I'll give it a try! I'm a HUGE fan of the They're Real mascara so maybe this will do something amazing and magical for my sad little lashes.
Soap & Paper Factory Shea Butter Hand Cream
Full Size Value: $18 | Sample Size Value: $3.97
Hooray more hand cream. That was 100% sarcastic here, I have a TON of hand cream and really could use something else. This is going on par with hair care items. Hand creams do have beautiful packaging though. I should take all my samples and make little gift packets for friends, but that's a lot of work in itself.
gorge* I’ll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray
Full Size Value: $29.95 | Sample Size Value: $7.48
Hair stuff...really...? This stuff is like a disease, once you start getting it, it just won't go away.
Coastal Scents® styleEYES Palette
Full Size Value: $12 | Sample Size Value: $3
This was the chosen item for the month, I almost didn't choose since I didn't want any eyeshadows but I ended up choosing because I didn't know what random mish mosh of products I would get if I didn't. These were probably the best colors for me, still don't love them. I also don't understand the whole Coastal Scents thing, if I was going to pay that much for a palette I might as well just pay a few dollars more for a Naked palette or something. I mean this one isn't that pricey but their Revealed line, I just don't get it.
Supergoop!® Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology, 18 oz.
Full Size Value: $48 for 18 oz | Sample Size Value: $0.90
I can't believe the full size stuff actually comes in a pump container like that. I don't know what it amuses me so much but it does. Supergoop! is a great brand however I'm just not a sunblock person so this will get passed onto somehow who will actually make some use of it.

Value of Box: $
