Birchbox December 2013

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in so long! My friend wasn't able to fix my computer, so now I have to take it back to Best Buy to see what they can do for me. But today I want to show you what I got in this month's Birchbox!!
Deceber Birchbox
This month's theme is Sparkle and Shine or Holiday 2013.
They changed the packaging of the box slightly this month, which was a nice touch.
Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne Absolue
Sample Size (0.05 fl oz?)-$1.33?
I had to estimate the cost of this sample since I couldn't find a size on the vial. I went with 0.05 since that seems to be the typical size for fragrance samples. I thought this had a nice scent, but I don't like it enough to purchase it. I definitely prefer the Viva La Juicy Noir sample I got in last month's box!
Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray
Deluxe Size (30 ml)-$4.50 Value!
This was my favorite product in this month's box! This hairspray works well-it doesn't leave your hair crunchy at all! Plus it has a nice smell to it and the packaging is better for the environment!!
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré (24-Hour Miracle Cream)
Sample Size-$1.87
This product claims to be a primer, moisturizer, and makeup remover all in one. According to the Cosmetics Cop this just has a basic formula not worth the hype because many moisturizers containing it's ingredients also work as a primer and makeup remover.
LAQA & Co. Fat Lip Pencil (Ring of Fire)
Deluxe Size (0.07 oz)-$9.69 Value!
I think this lip pencil is pretty cute-they even called this small version Lil' Lip! But I would have been more excited if they sent me a different color since I just received a red lip crayon in my Ipsy bag last month. I won't swatch this for you guys because I'll save it for when I'm done using my other pencil.
Chuao Chocolatier Chocolate Bar (Orange-a-go-go)
Deluxe Size (0.39 oz)-$0.84 Value
I loved getting this in my box-who doesn't like getting chocolate? But orange chocolate isn't my favorite, so I would go for a different flavor if I were to ever purchase it in the future.
Total Paid: $10.00
Total Value: $18.23

 I thought this box was okay, but I was expecting a lot more for the holidays. This was by far my lowest valued box and the least exciting.
