 For once I was able to get one of my Birchboxes fairly quickly, and by fairly quickly I mean with in a month of it being shipped to me.

Just to give you the impression of how little there was in my box here is what all my samples look without the extra packaging. I could put all of these in my pocket and forget they were there (if I did that I would be sad.)

The total value of this box is $17.81, it isn't a high value box but I am happy to be trying the face cream because I haven't found one that I like enough to buy. The Harvey Prince perfume Skinny Chic is really lovely and I rate it up there with Hello which is my favorite perfume by far. I am always excited to get more nail polish and I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have a dupe for this in my collection already. I love the balm. I have several of their products and I love them all and I can't wait to see how this compares to my Urban Decay primers. Now the last item is the Ojon hair oil, I honestly don't know what to say about getting this sample since it is so small. I might be able to use it once so I am going to save it for when I go to Paris instead of bringing one of my larger bottles with me. Other than the size disappointment I am excited to try some new products.
