December 2016 Birchbox Unboxing

It’s the last box of the year!  December’s Birchbox theme is Shine On! and is well-equipped to help you stay merry and bright through the holidays.


Below are my three favorite samples from this month’s box.

The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream is such a lovely winter face cream.  The rose scent is dreamy.  This cream is easily absorbed and leaves my winter-dry face feeling nourished and moisturized.

I really like the IPKN Radiant Cream Primer SPF 15.  First off, I am a big fan of multitasking products, so I love that this primer contains SPF.  This primer is lightweight and has a pearlescent finish to it, giving my tired winter skin a nice glow.

Last, but definitely not least, is my favorite sample this month — the LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Rock Steady.  I am already a fan of eye shadow sticks from LOC and other brands, but I really love Rock Steady.  The smudge-proof highly pigmented formula is what I’ve seen from LOC in the past, but this color is just lovely.  Rock Steady is sort of a dark, metallic copper or rose gold.  It is great as an eye shadow, but I really like using it as an eyeliner (either without eye shadow or with a light smear of taupe on my lids).  This was an instant addition to my daily routine.  LOVE.
