Sorry for the unexpected hiatus – I’ve just been really busy with school this week! A few days ago, I received my November Birchbox and I’d like to show you what was in it!
This month’s theme was More Good.
Birchbox also included a small catalog featuring several new holiday products.
The first product I received was an Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil from Chella ($18). It was super opaque and pigmented, and did a great job of brightening without using shimmer. I really like using this on the inner rims of my eyes to neutralize any redness that might be there! I probably won’t repurchase this because it’s fairly expensive and I can use a nude or white pencil form the drugstore.
The next product I received was Dark n Stormy nail polish from Color Club ($8). The formula was good but very brushstrokey. The color itself reminds me of graphite from a pencil, and I love it! I won’t be repurchasing this because I already have too much nail polish and this sample will last me a long time.
The next product I received was Folle de Joie eau de parfum from Joie ($98). I hated this perfume! It smelled very old and grandma-ish, and it was much too heavy for my taste. I definitely won’t be repurchasing!
Then I received Huile Sensoreille from Lierac Paris ($40). This body oil was nice and moisturizing, but had a tendency to become too oily pretty fast. Less is more was the key when applying! I probably won’t repurchase this because it’s pricy and I prefer lotions and creams to oils.
The final beauty product I received was Shampoo and Balm from uniqONE ($19.99) Essentially, this is a cleansing conditioner. It made my hair feel super soft and shiny! But I don’t think I could use it every day because my hair has a tendency to get oily. I might repurchase this, but only if I don’t find a cheaper alternative first!
This month’s Birchbox Find was Toffee Crunch chocolate from Ghirardelli. It was delicious and I was so happy that they sent a full size bar! I will definitely be repurchasing this!
What did you get this month?
