October {Birchbox} Review

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was when my Birchbox showed up so fast for October (just made it as it's now November)! Obviously my  November review for Birchbox will be coming up soon as well. (Also keep an eye out for my Ipsy review and Paw Pack for Ella.) I stopped doing Birchbox two years ago because I didn't like their samples and for some reason my box was always late. However, I've been hearing good things again so I thought I would give them one more chance!

Here's a picture of the box and all of the products.

1. BeeKind Body Lotion - it's made with honey and organic chamomile (good), but I have to be honest it smells like pine-sol. So, if you are going for a sweet smelling fragrance this is probably not your best bet. I will say I love that it is not greasy. If there's one thing that will keep me from buying a product it's greasiness. It was also kind on my rough dry hands and didn't sting or burn. I give this one a B+. 
(Full size $15) Buy it here.

2. Dr Brandt Pores No More Mask- I have to say I really liked this product, it has a nice cooling feeling when you apply it to your skin. I applied the product to my chin because that's where I get the most blackouts. It seems to bring the blackouts to the surface, not necessarily get rid of them, but that does just as well! Once you use this you can then clean your face and absolve them from your skin. I give it an A.  (Full size $45) Buy it here.

3. Harvey Prince Petaly Noir Perfume- I am a tough critic when it comes to perfumes especially those of a floral nature. This one I really liked, it wasn't too overwhelming and it adds a nice mild scent to your skin. I give it an A and I will probably be investing in this one! (Full size $55) Buy it here.

4. Lord & Berry Glitter Eye Pencil - An eye pencil in black that has glitter and glides on smoothly on my skin? Check and check! Yes I love this eyeliner. You don't need to know much more than there's glitter. Done. Go get it. I give this one an A+ and will definitely be investing. (Full size $18) Buy it here.

5. ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty- I can't speak for it being party proof but it did withstand me taking multiple sips of drinks, kissing my boyfriend, and also kissing Ella. I'm sure it could withstand a party. I do love the color as well. The only reason I probably wouldn't invest right now is because I have so many neutral lipsticks, I'm trying to be more daring with my colors! But overall I give it an A. (Full size $24) Buy it here

That's my review! I was very happy with this month's box and I can't wait to tell you all about Novembers'!
