UNBOXING: Birchbox January 2014

It's Birchbox time!  You probably already know what Birchbox is, but in case you don't you can learn more here.  Basically, it's a makeup sample subscription service.  Every month, you receive 4-5 deluxe samples of high-end beauty and/or life style products.  I've received quite a few full-sized items, so it definitely pays for itself.  So, here we go... 

Birchbox January 2014

This month's theme is "Go Time."  January is go time!  Time to take on new challenges and try new products.

Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy - Morelia Monarch

This is a thick hand cream that contains glycerine.  I've been using it since I received my box, and it is so nice!  Even though it's thick, it's not greasy at all.  The scent is refreshing, yet spicy at the same time.  It's really nice.

Coastal Scents Revealed Eye Shadow Palette

This is a new eyeshadow palette from Coastal Scents.  I have yet to purchase any of the famous Coastal Scents palettes, although I Have thought about it a time or two.  I seem to always miss their sales.  This new palette is full of neutral, shimmery goodness.

Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

This is a serum from a brand I've heard a ton about.  Paula's Choice is known for promoting use of natural ingredients in skin care.  This particular serum contains hyaluronic acid in it, which keeps moisture on your skin.  I'm very excited to try this.  Since I've been using a hyaluronic acid toning spray at night, I've seen a difference in my skin.

Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Conditioner

Now, this is exciting!  You've heard about dry shampoo, but what about dry conditioner?  This dry spray conditions your locks without water.  How cool is that?  It contains argan oil, which should be softening.  I'll be excited to report back my findings :)

Under Armour Braided Mini Headbands

Unfortunately, this product is a dud for me.  I don't wear headbands, because they don't stay on my head very well.  I'll be gifting this to a friend!

What did you get this month?
