December 2013 Birchbox

I know, Mamas! I am so far behind! I am just catching up on some of my subscription boxes for the month! Phew! I have not even mailed out holiday cards yet! I am putting them together tonight and sending them off in the morning! Things just get so crazy around the holidays.
This is my Birchbox for this month:

I really loved this month's box as it seemed fitting for winter. The samples were small with 4 foil sized samples, but all in all I was pleased. Birchbox is only $10 a month, and this month I had 5 samples, which means I could earn 50 points. Remember, you can cash out with $10 worth of points (100 points), so about every 2 months you get $10 worth of a full sized item(s).
In this month's box:
  • 1 very small Fatty Sundays Chocolate Covered Pretzel. The packaging is a little deceiving because this was TINY, but the pretzel itself was delicious. Web Value 70 cents
  • Eslor Skincare foil samples. I struggle with giving foil packets a "value" because most can be picked up for free at the department store. There were 4 packets, however, and the web value is around $12.00
  • Number 4 Hairspray. 1 oz. This was convenient because I had JUST ran out of hairspray. At 1 ounce it is perfect for travel too! Amazon value: $3.50
  •  The Honest Company Healing Balm. .75 oz, Amazon value $6.25. This was my favorite item in the box, as my hands have been SUPER dry!!
  • Supergoop! CC Cream, 3 ml. SUPER Small! Amazon value $1.55
Even without adding in the value of the points (which is about $5) and not taking into account the foil samples, the value is STILL $11.30, which is more than the $10 cost. In the end, the box is probably a value of at least $20 which is double the value of what you are paying! I still feel Birchbox is one of the best values out there.
