November Birchbox: Unboxed

I just love when my Birchbox comes!! It's so exciting to open it and try new things!

I loved the colors of this month's box. Mostly the color of the tissue paper. (It's the little things in life!)

The inside of my box. That brown square box had two small things in it - no worries I still got my five items!

1. Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Mask ($7.50) // This was another one of those cotton masks (similar to one I had last month). I still felt so silly with it on but I really loved this one! I think I actually like this one more than the one I got last month. It made my skin look amazing afterwards!!

2. AYRES Body Polish - Pampas Sunrise ($25) // I've only used this on my hands because I wanted to make the sample last, but it's pretty amazing. My hands were so soft after using it! It's really similar to the Satin Hands line from Mary Kay, but you can use it on your entire body.

3. Davines This Is A Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid ($26) // I'm going to be very honest: I couldn't tell if this even did anything. It smelled pretty good, kinda lemon-y. It's supposed to add shine and moisturize your hair while also eliminating frizz and humidity-proofing it. Considering my hair didn't look or feel any different, I'm not sure I would actually use this stuff.

4. theBalm cosmetics FratBoy ($21) // This is blush. I was so confused when I first saw it. But that's just it. It's just blush. I didn't think was special or anything. It says you can use it as a shadow, but I was not a fan of pink shadow on me! I looked like I was sleep-deprived. I think I'll stick to my tried and true blush!

5. LOC One & Done Shadow Stick - On Point ($10) // I LOVE this stuff!! First, it's a beautiful light shimmery shade of cream/tan. Second, it goes on so smooth. It's a cream, not a powder. Third, it doesn't crease!! I have really oily skin so my eyeshadow tends to crease easily but this stuff is tough! It stayed put all day. It's waterproof but comes off with my makeup remover that isn't made for waterproof makeup which is nice! This is a Birchbox exclusive too! I would absolutely buy more of this!

October Update: I ended up super loving the Oribe texturizing spray. I used it with my dry shampoo to give my roots some lift and hold. I haven't bought a full size bottle yet, but my sample bottle was gone within a week or two so I'll be ordering it soon!

I realized as I was typing out this post that next month will be my one-year anniversary with Birchbox! I definitely do not regret starting a subscription. Let me know if you're interested in trying it out - especially because you can get $5 off your first box!!
