My Birchbox Got LOST

Hello beauties!! A late but Happy New Year to you all!! This is my first blog post of the year, and there will be many more to come :) So I hadn't made a blog post or video last month about the December Birchbox because my Birchbox got lost!! I was never able to track my box, and I had to report it and request a new one. I was hoping that the last box of the year and the long wait would be worth it. Will it live up to my expectations? Let's find out!
December's theme was a holiday box. I love the little gift tag it came with.
This is the Obliphica Nourishing Mask by amika. It's a hair mask packed with omega acids and vitamin C that is supposed to help boost hair shine and help repair split ends.
This is the Measurable Difference Lash Gel Serum by Lashem. This can be used for the lashes and the eyebrows and is supposed to be irritation free. I'm interested in trying this out on my brows, but I am hesitant on trying this out on my lashes just from fear. I will try them for both uses though for the purpose of reviewing.
This was a LIFESTYLE EXTRA from Birchbox and it's by Chuao Chocolatier. It's a mini chocolate bar with toasted breadcrumbs, dusted with sea salt. Unfortunately I can't eat this because this has wheat in it. I gave it to my friend and he said it was delicious!
This looks like a candy, but it's actually just the packaging for perfume. This is the Shimmer Fragrance by Aerie. It has a blend of bergamot, peony, and vanilla. I don't like the scent very much because it reminds me of white musk - which I don't like.
The last thing in this box is the Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm cosmetics. It's a three-in-one highlighter, eyeshadow, and all-over shimmer. I was really excited at first, until I noticed there was a finger print on it!! I'm going to just wipe off the top, but I'm still upset that I got a tampered sample.

Overall, this box did NOT live up to my expectations for December or for my very long wait. I am impressed with how Birchbox handled my situation, but it is still an inconvenience that the box got lost in the first place. This box is definitely one of my least favorite boxes I have gotten, and the finger print really didn't help the situation :(
