December Boxycharm | 12 Days of Blogging
You know how much I love my Boxycharm boxes; they are the best! This month they definitely mixed it up and kept me on my toes. I'll just say some of these products have me incredibly excited and some fell flat. But, I'll leave you to be the judge!
The first product is the Storybook Cosmetics Fairy Tales: Little Red Riding Hood Palette (Boxy lists $35 but the brand site lists $25). While this is a pretty palette, I know I won't get much use out of this. I have several palette just like this one so I know it needs to be with someone else who can use it more!
Next item out of the box is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil ($79). I have heard great things about this line! Unfortunately, I cannot use rose products as I am allergic; which also means this will go to another home.
The Ciate Marbled Light Illuminating Blusher (Boxy lists $26 but brand site lists $22) was the next item that I pulled from my box. Finally! A product I can and will use! This blush is so beautiful. It's a great preppy pink that provides a glowing sheen to the cheeks. I find that I can really build this up which I like in a blush. I have used this for the past week and I really enjoy it!
An interesting item in the box is the Seraphine Botanicals Daikon + Dreams Lip Exfoliator with Radish Extract ($24). Have you ever heard of such a thing? I haven't! However, I am always up for a good lip scrub so I will make sure to keep you posted on my thoughts!
Finally, the last item in the box is the Brow Bar Brow Makeover Kit in 'Dark' ($30). Another product I cannot use. Well, at least I don't think I can. This - at first glance - is not the correct shade for me. I probably need either the light or medium shade. Also, I am not huge on pomades at the moment and this looks a lot like that. I will let you know what I think after a few uses. Hopefully I am wrong about this one but we shall see!
I am sure you can decipher this by now...I am pretty disappointed in this month's box. I just don't feel like there is a lot here I can use. The palette is too much like all of the others we have gotten, the serum is rose-based which will make me sneeze constantly and then we have the brow kit that is (likely) far too dark for me to use.
Let's hope next month is a bit more promising for me! What did you get this month? Are you happy with your box?
