October Birchbox: Unboxed

October's Birchbox was all about reviving and restoring. The products included features that brighten skin and rejuvenate hair. Keep reading to see what products I received and what I thought about them!

1. Escada Joyful Eau de Parfum ($74) // This perfume is a sweet, floral scent that would actually be perfect for warmer months. Going into fall, I like darker scents so I wouldn't wear it now. But if it were a liiiiiitle bit cheaper I would absolutely wear this in the spring!

2. DevaCurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip Mousse ($26) // Since I wash my hair at night, it's always very hit or miss what wet products will do to my hair as it dries while I sleep. Usually I wake up and my hair is crunchy and frizzy and just not cute at all. But I LOVE this stuff!! My hair had lots of grip and texture but without the crunch and frizz. Plus, the texture lasted a couple days (well until I washed it again) so that was an added bonus.

3. MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick ($25) // I don't think I've ever used a lipstick that is so creamy and moisturizing! I got the color Taffy, which was a little more pink when I applied it than I was expecting, but it wasn't a bad thing! I'm not sure I could spend $25 on lipstick, but my lips were super soft even after the color had faded. Speaking of fading, I think it wears about like your typical lipstick. I needed to reapply at lunch then once I left work.

4. The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream ($88) // My first impression was holy crap this stuff has a powerful rose scent! I'm not a big rose scent person so if you like rose, this stuff is for you! It's also a heavy cream so it would be perfect for the dry seasons! I didn't notice that it made my skin more oily though like other heavy face creams tend to do. The biggest downside is the price. 88 bucks! I don't think I could ever justify spending that much on face cream.

5. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask ($58) // This was probably my favorite product this month! Y'all. My skin was so clean and bright after using it. As I was putting lotion on my face, I noticed I was wiping away blackheads (so gross, right?). Which is so funny because other people have said the same thing in the reviews! And even though it's $58, this stuff would be completely worth it!
