This month I bring you a Birchbox that actually made me smile. Inside we have our normal beauty products, a special treat, & a cute Birchbox made holiday guide-type booklet. I’m pretty happy with this box for random reasons, keep reading to find out what is inside!
So we have our regular card which if you click to enlarge you can see more product information 🙂
I really like this little booklet, super cute & fun for the holiday season filled with tips & tricks ranging from beauty to advice.
Inside my box I received for November 2013:
Color Club Nail Polish in Dark ‘N Stormy– This is a nice metallic darkened gray & always a nice sample from Color Club. I have a lot of shades like this unfortunately so I wish it had been something either more original or even more holiday themed.
Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips– I was SO excited to see this in my box because those I read/watch across the pond absolutely love it. This is OOBER thick but somehow not slick at all? I was concerned because I figured it would be slick but it is actually hard to explain how NOT slick this is & isn’t really shiny either! I really want a full size of this for winter!
It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product– I’ve been wanting to try this forever & for some reason I just never splurged despite all the amazing things I’ve heard. I’ll be washing my hair today which is when I assume it will be more noticeable? I’m excited to see how it works & also terrified I’ll love it & have devote a ton of money to it since I have such thick hair.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir– I’ve smelled this in the stores before which is a good thing…since my sample wouldn’t spray 🙁 Bummer right? I actually really like this scent, it is sexy & has notes of honeysuckle which I really enjoy & seems to be rare in sexier type scents. i really wish my sample worked, this would have been nice for travel.
Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream– This wasn’t a great sample for me because it is in the shade Light to Medium & claims to be self adjusting…but not on my super pale skin! I can’t wear this out in public. Too dark. I will say that I really liked the formula though & it appeared to blur imperfections & my freckles. This isn’t moisturizing at all but it made my skin feel super soft!
Birchbox Find is like an added mass-market extra & this month it was a full sized Ghirardelli chocolate bar in the flavor Toffee Crunch which was super creamy with bits of crunchy toffee- yum!
Overall I’m very happy with this box because I finally get to try the It’s a 10 & the Dr. Lipp products, they were nice surprises! I wish the CC Cream was in my shade but I really love it so maybe I’ll seek it out… Wish my Juicy perfume sample worked, would have been great to carry in my purse to transition to night.
Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription costing $10 a month. If you review each product monthly you also get credit money in the Birchbox shop. If you review each product each month (assuming there are 5) that equals $5 so the box itself pretty much costs $5 which is an awesome deal!
