More Birchbox Problems?! January 2013

Hello beauties!! This was my first birch box of the year. The last couple of months I have had problems with my birch box either getting lost, or finger prints in my samples.I figured this year would be a fresh and hopefully exciting start.

Let me start off by saying that there are only 4 samples in this picture above, when there should be 5. This box is missing the Nicole by Nicole Richie perfume. (The item towards the back is just a poster)

This is the first time a box of mine was missing a sample. As a regular paid customer, I expect to get everything that was intended for me. Not happy about the missing item!

This is the Dry Styling Heat Protectant Spray by Oscar Blandi. The little spray bottle is adorable, but it smells like those lemon cleaners that you use to clean wood surfaces. I applied this to my damp hair and it made it sticky and crunchy....No Bueno!
The next item is the Lait- Creme Concentrate - 24 Hour Miracle Cream by Embryolisse. It's a fairly small sample. This is supposed to heal dryness and prep the skin for foundation.
This is something I was going to use my Birchbox points to purchase! This is the Skinny Liquid Eyeliner by Eyeko. It has a nice and precise felt tip. This liner lasts ALL day and does not smudge!! I love how quickly I can create a classic cat eye look. I am extremely happy about this, especially since this retails for $15
The last item in my box is again by Oscar Blandi. It's the Pronto Wet Instant Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner. It is sulfate and paraben free. I was very surprised that the shampoo didn't dry my hair out. As I was washing it out, my hair felt silky smooth! The conditioner was great as well, but there wasn't enough product for all the hair I have.

That's it for the items in my box. If it wasn't for the Eyeko eyeliner, I would be 100% unhappy with this box. The other items don't excite me, and I was very unhappy that I had to contact Birchbox about another issue. They told me they are going to send out a replacement for the Nicole Richie Fragrance. So hopefully it is worth the wait.

If you haven't watched my latest video on the unboxing of the first Birchbox of 2013, please feel free to watch it here:
