What I Got in my Birchbox + Julep Box | Unboxing and Review

First things, first! Happy Holidays!

I absolutely LOVED the gold wrapping and the festive packaging. Presentation is so important to beauty brands. Here is a breakdown of what was in my December 2013 Birchbox! Again, this will be my last Birchbox for a while. I hope to feel motivated to come back to Birchbox but there are so many other subscription services out there that I would like to try without getting so many overlapping products as with what is happening now!

  • Color Club Nail Polish in Baldwin Blues
  • Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (24-Hour Miracle Cream) 
  • Harvey Prince Hello Fragrance 
  • Number 4 Non Aerosol Hairspray
  • and the 
  • Lifestyle Extra: Twistband Metallic Hair Tie

100’s of women and  men received Sparkle and Shine Birchboxes but how many got duplicate samples. My Birchbox was  kind of lacking for it to be so sparkly and shiny. It was also a bit disappointing when I realized that I just received the same metallic hair tie  in my December Julep box. So, how does this happen? Apparently a lot of subscription services use the same vendors to supply samples and generic beauty extras for their boxes. At some point that is definitely going to lead to some overlapping. Most likely the longer you subscribe to a subscription service, the more likely you will see some overlapping in products not only from brands but also in generic products like hair accessories and so forth. I do a  side by side in my video overview of the December Birchbox and also in the photos below.
