October Birchbox


October 13, 2013 by CJ

This month’s Birchbox was a little lighter than those in past months.  For some subscription boxes, this would upset me, but not with Birchbox.  I find this subscription is always full of something new, exciting and I often feel fortunate to find something I can add to my beauty routine.


A little light, but quality products this month.


Bain de Terre– Macadamia Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner

I stopped using shampoo to clean my hair a while back.  I’ve been doing co-washes and conditioning cleansers (Wen products).  I have been reading a lot of blogs written by people with natural hair and most of them do shampoo once a month.  I think I may try that with this set.  I love that it contains monoi oils, I’ve been on a search for products with monoi oils!

Total Value -3.61


Benefit– Fake Up- This is a new thing for me.  This is an under eye concealer.  I love the container.  It looks like a lipstick tube.  According to the directions, I just swipe this under my eye and use my finger to blend.  Fake it until you wake up.  I definitely could use this.

Value- $2.00


Karuna Clarifying Mask– I am a sucker for a mask.  I typically will buy any and all facial masks.  You can imagine how delighted I was when I saw this.  Never used it, but 100% ready to try it.

Value- $7.00


This month included a Birchbox Find (a mass-market discovery that Birchbox thinks is just plain awesome), Chapstick Hydration Lock.  I opened this up immediately and tried it.  LOVED it.  According to this little card this chapstick can be used as a primer to lock in moisture from 9-5.  I completely agree.  I would have never purchased this and after using for a few days, this is a new staple for me.

Value- $2.99

I paid $10 for this box and received @ $15.00 worth of products.  Again, not the heaviest box ever, but each item will be used and I found a new must have item.  Two thumbs, way up for this Birchbox!

Do you get Birchbox?  What did you get this month?

    Your box is so different from mine! So neat that you received a shampoo containing an ingredient you’d been looking for. The mask looks great, too!
