January Birchbox goodies

I got my second Birchbox in the mail yesterday, and I thought I would show you here what I got.

First I'll explain. If you don't know what Birchbox is, it's a monthly subscription system where it's $10 for a box full of either full-size products or sample sizes, 4-5 products per month. My boyfriend Andy is incredibly adorable and bought me a yearly subscription for Christmas. I <3 him. Last month's box wasn't all that exciting, but this one made me happy.

I'll start with the least exciting - woohoo a Larabar. We can get those at Target. I feel like this - and the energy drink mix that came in last month's box - are kind of a cop out, seeing that they are pretty readily available in grocery stores. Whatever, I'll eat it.

This next one is a revitalizing night cream from Befine with cocoa and other wonderful ingredients in it. I'll probably give it a shot tomorrow night.

This nail polish is GORGEOUS. It is Zoya Megan, which is a lavender gray color, even though in this picture it isn't showing true to color. I'll paint my nails with this next, and to a NOTD, because it's SO PRETTY. I don't own any other Zoya nail polishes, so this is exciting. I probably would own Zoya nail polishes if you could buy them from more places. I've only ever seen them at Ulta, 45 minutes away. :(

This next one is a hypoallergenic brightening eye serum, which I'm excited to try, but will probably end up giving to my mom because it has anti-aging effects and we all have bags under our eyes. The packaging is pretty swanky, in a brown glass bottle and everything!

The last thing is another great fragrance sample. I love fragrance samples, because I only own two fragrances that I purchased. I like changing it up a bit, and usually the ones I get are fantastic. And heck, once I run out of my other fragrances and I like one of my samples a lot, I can just go get a full size!

They also included this sweet little card with explanations of the theme of the month, which was "clarity." On another sheet they included a list of "soul detoxes" having to do with sleep and the like, a good way to start out 2012. It's cute. I'll have to fill out the feedback on the website to cater my selections more to my needs, since I'm spending less this year as a whole!
