Since being a subscriber to birchbox, I have actually bought quite a few products that I really like since July. Just for a frame of reference, I have light/fair skin, medium length wavy/thin hair.

The Balm Stainiac - gel cheek/lip stain. bought this over the summer and loved it as a blush. Since it's winter and my skin is a little dry, I have been using this as a lip stain.

Ms. Jessie's Pillow soft curls - When I want to air dry my hair and maximize my wavy/curly hair without the crunch. It's smells like downy and really works. More of a summer look, but you use very little so the large size will probably take me a year to go through.

Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45+ - I originally received the Dr. Jart SPF 25 in my birchbox and decided to get this one instead. I don't usually wear foundation and I really like the tinted moisturizer. Perfect color, good SPF and anti aging (supposedly).

Spornette Porcupine Rounding Brush - I needed a new brush and I decided to try this one (25% off entire order will do that to you). The round brush really helps with blow drying my hair. More volume.

EVE LOM Cleanser - I originally got this in the GOOP birchbox and due to it's price, I held out for a couple of weeks. This has seriously saved my skin this winter. I alternate this with my Biore ICE cleanser. I have not experienced breakouts due to the oil. Bought this end of November and and I have 3/4 left.

Nick Chavez® Beverly Hills Advanced Volume Shampoo - I needed a new shampoo and wasn't really happy with my hair. I liked this with the Amika Hair mask.

amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask - Another GOOP birchbox find. My hair after this is really shiny and I have seen a difference. The size is huge and you only need a little bit.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray - How did I go without this spray for so long???? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

I used most of my birchbox points toward these purchases plus the 25% coupons. The only thing that I might buy right now are the frownies, but I am still thinking about it.
