Birchbox for December 2012 featuring Model Co

This is my December Birchbox! I received a product that I actually got in my Beauty Box 5 box last month which is the Model Co gloss. Everything else is new to me though!Just click on the photos below to enlarge them!
This box was just okay. I'm not unhappy but I'm also not blown away.I was really excited to get the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream because apparently I'm a big time BB Cream fan. I'm been wearing this today & it has a nice finish. I don't have enough to do a full review though, sorry. The Keratase Thermique packets aren't getting used anytime soon...I just have loads of haircare to get through. This lipgloss isn't my favorite but it is a pretty shade, a sheer berry. I am counting the lotion packet with the lotion sample. This is a good sized sample but the lotion is just okay. The scent just isn't for me. I don't usually go for energizing scents, more sultry or floral.
I just want to say that I consider the InStyle card a throwaway. I'm not into Rent the Runway type services. I'd rather just buy something I can keep. I don't feel like it adds any value to the box either.

So that's what I got! Not awful, not great. I count this box as being $5 & with the full sized gloss & decent size of the lotion I'm pleased. Why do I consider a $10 to be only $5? Because for every product you get in your & review, you get points. 10 per product. Then you can use them to purchase items in their store which I really like! They often have exclusive colors or products.

What do you think of this Birchbox? Are you subscribed? Any other boxes you like?
