Birchbox Review: December's Winners & Losers

I'm happy to report that I had a lot more winners than losers this go around with Birchbox, so lets get on with it.

My December Winners:

Benefit's the POREfessional
I've tried other primers, and nearly all of them have fallen to my oily skin.
If it's hadn't been for a friend's suggestion, I probably would never have tried the sample.
Woah, this stuff is legit. No more mirror face at noon.
Kate Spade perfume in Twirl
I am obsessed with it's light, floral scent, but I refuse to use it since its only a sample.
Yep, I'm a perfume sample hoarder...

Jouer lipgloss in Birchbox Pink
The color looks like a "woah that's pink!" pink in the tube, but as you can see it's a nice, fresh color instead.

E Boost Energy Drink Mix
Being that I don't drink energy drinks at all, I didn't really know what to expect or to compare it to.
Wasn't bad. Reminded me of orange koolaid from grade school.

And sadly, here are my December losers:
 Nuxe Dry Oil
I wanted to like this, I really did. But for me, it really wasn't worth all the hype of the price, and although I am in love with Moroccan Oil, I didn't want to go anywhere near my hair with this. For some reason, I just didn't trust it.
Show Stoppers clothing tape
Now, I'm not saying that these do not work, but I simply do not have any use for them.
And the worst part is that they came in black instead of clear if I ever would use them.
Aren't they supposed to not show? Why would I need them in black? 

Any of y'all tried these products before? Should I give my losers a second chance?

I liked the Jouer lipgloss too :) I was happy to discover the color wasn't as PINK as it looks.

I didn't get the Twirl perfume sample or the primer in my box last month. I'm jealous!

And I wasn't crazy about the E Boost. I didn't really do anything for me & I didn't like the taste.

I haven't even opened the clothing tape. I haven't had a need for them yet. But, I'm with you on the color. Why are the black?

Have a great weekend, Whitney! :)

puuurdy lip gloss!! (also love your eye makeup in that pic!!) i haven't tried either of the two products you didn't care for- but i feel the same way about my moroccan oil! i feel like if it's working, why change it up?

The twirl does smell pretty good. I have a sample I got from Sephora not too long ago.
