NYC Metro Girl December 2014 & Advent Calendar Day 19

NYC Metro Girl is a monthly subscription box that sends you eight soap samples and a monthly gift based on the theme of the month for $18.00.  I find that this box ships really quick and only takes just over a week to get to me.  They always include fun shapes and the scents are great and linger but are not overpowering.  This months theme is “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”.

I like that this box is always well packed.  Nothing moves around and breaks or squishes.  The first look lets you see a few of the shaped soaps!

The info card for this box lets you know what the inspiration for the theme was, what scents you received, what your bonus item is, and what the online specials for the month are.

Even this months square soaps are decked out in their best.  The one with the medallion is Hot Chocolate, the star one is Under The Stars, the purply one is Purple Kiss, and the pink sparkly one is Pink Angel.

The shaped ones are my favorites, cause I’m a bit of a geek like that. The puzzle piece is Festive Lights, round white one is Oatmeal Stout, ed and green round one is Cranberry Mint, which smells much better then it sounds, and lastly the little tree is Frosty White Soap.

This months bonus item was a Soy Tea Light Candle.  I’m not sure if it has a scent beyond the soy/beeswax it’s made up of but I like candles and will use this for sure.

This is not listed on my card so I’m taking it as a Christmas present from NYC Metro Girl.  It’s a Lemongrass & Tea Tree Oil Cuticle Butter.  My cuticles are a disaster every winter so this is very timely.

This box never disappoints me.  I love all the soaps, they lather great and smell awesome.  They are handmade and have fun shapes and names.  I think this is probably my last box from them though so that I can try out some new ones but I would say that if you want to try a bunch of soaps each month or need little soaps for guests to use then this is the box for you.

With only a few days left in my advent calendars I’m hoping the treats will get more exciting. However Benefit has let me down again.

Today I got Honeymania Lip Balm and a Polka Dot Hair Tie.  Sad Benefit.  I like both of these things but neither makes me jump up and down with glee. Maybe tomorrow…..
