Birchbox November 2015

With Birchbox you get monthly boxes of five personalized beauty samples, tailored to your profile. They promise to help you try cult brands, up-and-coming lines, and everything in between.  They also say you will never receive the same product twice.  Birchbox runs at $10.00 per month plus $4.95 shipping but you can get yearly plans for $100.00 plus shipping as well.  This makes it one of the more affordable boxes out there. Each box is different and reflects the theme of the month.

Another designed box from them this month.  I havenèt been saving the boxes, some go into recycling and some my mother has been taking but they are a nice box if you wanted to reuse them.  The front of the info card is just saying that times are getting hectic and you should take some time for yourself.

The reverse of the card gives you your product list and full size retails.  It’s nice to get that blurb on each item, lets you know jut enough to try it out.

Benefit Cosmetics Puff Off Eye Gel-2.5mL $9.50

I’m currently using another sample of this from a different box and am loving it.  Even on days when I don’t get much sleep because of the girls you can’t tell (at least from looking at me, I might be a bit snappy though).  You need so little of this that the fact that it’s pretty tiny is okay.  I’ve used the other one for two weeks and there is still a bit left.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo-92mL $13.01

I have received a whole bunch of dry shampoos since I started getting boxes and I use them all the time now.  This one is a bit different in that it actually cleans the hair as well as absorbing oils.  Sounds fantastic.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in On Point-1.35g $10.33

This is an eyeshadow stick in a great colour.  It’s something I would call champagne coloured and has super shimmer to it.  This is perfect for the upcoming holiday season and I can’t wait to use it.

Salon Gioge Keratin Protein Mask-1oz $4.93

My hair loves keratin masks!  I have a different one and it leaves my hair so soft and smooth and I’m hoping this one will be just as good.  I use it in the shower while I shave my legs and that’s usually enough time for them to work.

Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel-25mL $3.02

This smells good!  It’s a blend of mint, peppermint, and basil and it seems so refreshing.  It is strong but I think that since it’s a body wash it won’t be too horrible.  I have a bit if a backlog of body washes to get through but this one might jump the que.

This months value for the box was $40.79.  There were no full sized items but that’s not unusual for this box.  This is my last box from them and I think I went out on a high.  The samples have always been good size and good quality.  I would recommend this box if you were looking for one that was inexpensive but still filled with name brands.   You get points for reviewing your box items, that you can then use in their store.  If you find a product you love, any item in your box has free shipping for the month also. The American boxes do have a few more perks like selecting one of your samples, which seems like it’s on it’s way here,  and a men’s box but I am hopeful once they get settled in Canada the same types of options will be available.
