Day #155: Glam Bag vs Birchbox

Without further adieu, here is December's Showdown: Birchbox versus Glambag

First up, Birchbox:

One: Thymes Naia Body Lotion, 1.5 fl oz
Love this lotion! It's a perfect size to fit in my purse or my work bag. I love the smell, it's hard to describe...it's not flowery and it's not overwhelming. It's light and almost jasminey in my opinion. Plus it's not greasy. I love it.

Two: Juice Beauty, Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream, .17 fl oz
This skin cream comes in two shades: Natural Glow and Warm Glow. My sample is natural glow, which is good cause I'm pasty pale! I haven't used this cream yet, but I am excited to try it!

Three & Four: Kerastase, Nutritive Nectar Thermique
Two packets of this leave-in cream...I LOVE it, it makes my hair feel silky and smooth after drying and straightening. I almost wish I had $42 to spend on the large size!

How to use it:
Apply a dime-sized amount of product to slightly damp, towel-dried hair. Start from the ends and work your way upwards, massaging gently. Finish off by styling with a blow dryer or a flat iron.

Five: Thymes, Lotus Santal Body Lotion
An extra treat from the Birchbox team! A small sample of more Thymes lotion. I am saving it for a special occasion.

Six: ModelCo, SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss
I love this lip gloss. It comes with a little mirror on it so you can easily apply color (and make sure you don't get it on your teeth...). The color is subtle but makes your lips feel soft. I received this gloss in Berry Pink.

Next, Glam Bag:

One: NYX Loose Powder in Walnut Pearl - Love it! On the IPSY website it says this can be used on the eyes, cheeks or lips. But I think it best to stay on the eyes.

Two: Be a Bombshell Lipgloss in "Hot Mess". It looks brighter in the tube than it does when applied. I think it's still too bright for me, but maybe a good stocking stuffer??

Three: Mirabella Primer. Let me just say, this is my FAVORITE primer! A tube at my hair salon is at least $25 and I received a full tube in my glam bag. Ah-mazing! This primer makes your face super soft. In case you missed it, I wrote about this primer before. Find it here.
Four: MAI Couture Highlighter Paper. I've never heard of highlighter paper. According to the package it's purpose is to "add radiance and glow to desired areas of face and body". Interesting. I will try it!

Five: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil. Love, love, love this eye-liner! It goes on smooth and if I poke myself in the eye, my tears won't wash it away :) A must have.

I have to say. It's a toss up this month. I loved both my Birchbox and my Glam Bag!!! What did you guys think??

Please help Sarah & her family this Christmas!

She was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer with mets to the colon. She will be having a hysterectomy and colectomy on January 8. She will started chemo a month later. My husband and I are helping plan a benefit for her on January 20. We are also working to build up a fund to help her care for her 3 kids while she goes through this process.
