It’s been a good week for mail! I just got my December 2013 Birchbox in!
I know I’ve already posted the preview of what I was getting, but I wasn’t able to give estimated values. So, let’s go through the list again with the values!
Contents: •BORGHESE Splendore Brightening Makeup ($30) •Embryolisse Lait-Creme aka Le tiny fancy French creme ($1.87*) •twistband ($2**) •Lulu Organics Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder ( $1.35***) •Sumbody lip balm ($8****)
Total value of $43.22! I’m not complaining since I only paid $10/month and received four times that, but I am a bit surprised. I was anticipating to receive a bigger sample of the Embryolisse creme. I was also hoping the hair powder sample would be a bit bigger.  0.5oz would have been a nice size sample (instead of 0.18oz).  
However, I was pleasantly - very pleasantly - surprised that the Borghese ‘sample’ I received is full size!  According to Birchbox, it is $30/1oz and that’s the same size as the sample.  It’s always, always, always sweet to score a full size product.  Especially when that product alone is three times what you paid!
