Birchbox – October

I live on the west coast, and this was the fastest I have received my Birchbox!
I’m digging the quick turnaround!

October’s Theme: ¬†Beauty Buzz


Nothing LOOKS scary – but let’s take a closer look…


Our list of fun.  Looks like this month they are focusing on
products with the most buzz.


Pop Beauty Aqua Lacquer in Flowering Fuchsia
Retail $14 for .34 fl oz / 10 ml – Full Size Sample

I was so excited when I read on the product list that this contained jojoba oil.
Then I looked at the ingredients РMINERAL OIL Р#1 on the list?!?  SERIOUSLY?!?!
Why would you waste good jojoba oil on a product with cheap petroleum
based man-made oil? ¬†When ChapStick is the better choice that’s kinda bad.


Dr. Brandt Mircrodermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
Retail $78 for 2 fl oz / 60 g – Sample Value $9.75 for .25 fl oz / 7.5 g

I loved this!  It reminds me of the Vasanti Brighten Up but with a finer texture.
It left my skin feeling super soft.  However, it is over twice the price of the
Brighten Up – so I will be sticking with Vasanti – unless I find a killer deal.


Miss Jessie’s Original Pillow Soft Curls
Retail $22 for 8.5 fl oz / 250 ml – Sample Value $2.55 for 1 fl oz / 29 ml

Okay first the good – this made my hair feel uh-may-zing!!
My hair was silky feeling and felt light almost airy – and I have super
thick course hair.  I never felt my hair like this.

Now the bad…

….Oh Dear God does this smell bad :-\ ¬†They made it to smell like a fabric
softener – and it does – times a hundred!!! ¬†We don’t even use commercial
fabric softeners – so the last thing I want is to smell like I spilled Downey
on my head. ¬†I hope they come up with unscented – I’d buy it by the gallon then.


Benefit Fake Up in Medium
Retail $24 for 0.12 oz / 3.5 g – Sample Value $3.43 for 0.01 oz / .5 g

Kind of funny we got this in October – because it reminds me of grease paint
that we used at Halloween when I was a kid.  Their theory is great Рbut the
execution does not work. ¬†It actually acentuated fine lines around my eyes –
ones I did not notice so much.  Plus, it did not play well with my foundation.


ChapStick Hydration Lock in Vanilla Crème
Retail $2.99 for .15 oz / 4 g – Full Size Sample

It’s ChapStick.
Not any different from the rest of the ChapSticks I have tried – except the Vanilla isn’t gross.
It’s cool to have for the upcoming cold weather – and nice as a bonus.
Plus, we got a $1 off coupon. ¬†That’s cool.

Total Value for my October¬†Birchbox¬†‚Äď $32.72

This was a decent box.  I had some hits and couple of misses Рbut that is what I love
about these subscriptions.  I get to try things I normally would not.
It would be cool if they went a little nuts for Halloween –
but the scent of the Pillow Soft Curls¬†was frightening enough ūüėČ
