October 2015 Birchbox

Good Morning beauties!

I am so happy to have the day off today!  I needed a break from work!

I am planning on relaxing all day and maybe going out to meet some of my friends later on.

When I walked out to my mail box earlier my day was made even brighter by a bright pink Birchbox mailer!!!

I was shocked that my Birchbox came so early and beat out Ipsy and Boxycharm!

Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products and very little makeup.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray Sample:  Full Size = $22-$42

Bigger, better, full-on glamorous hair.  This invisible dry hair spray builds in incredible volume and sexy texture.  Patented polymers absorb oil at the roots, leaving you with just-styled hair for days (and nights).

This is a really expensive product!  I’m excited that I get to try it out first and decide if it’s worth spending that much on.

It sounds great so I’m hoping it works!

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Lip Locked in “Lucky” Sample:  Full Size = $22- $42

All-in-one primer, stain, and gloss that’s loaded with nourishing vitamins A and E.

You guys know I love my lip products!  It is such a cute little size that is perfect for throwing in a small bag or clutch and taking it on the go.

It sounds like an interesting product.  I love the thought of it being a stain and a gloss!  Talk about being the best of both worlds!

BioRepublic Cucumber Breeze Soothing Mask Full size!! =$4.99

  Fiber face mask that calms stressed skin and minimizes the look of pores and fine lines.

Um…yes please!?!

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara Sample:  Full Size= $23

This ink-like mascara goes big in every way- just one coat gives you jet-black color and a major boost in volume, curl and length.  The conditioning, lightweight formula is smudge-proof and clump-proof.

I’ve never tried this mascara before so I’m super excited to see how it works for me.  I love for my mascaras to be inky black and give me volume and length.  If this does what it claims, I may have a new favorite!

Avene Thermal Spring Water Sample:  Full Size = $12.50- $18

This hydrating mist is your best bet for curing dryness and irritation in a snap.

So I have always thought these types of products are ridiculous.  It’s essentially water in a can.

But because I received this as a sample I will see how this works and if it really is an amazing product.

What did you get in your box this month?  Has anyone had any experience with any of these products?  Let me know!

  2. You and I received the same products. 😊 As you know, I love what we received for October. After using the products for a few days now, my favorites are the thermal mist and the mask. If you go to BioRepublic’s website and add a mask to your cart (any single mask), enter your shipping info and email address, then enter code BIONEWS, you’ll get the mask for free! You don’t pay shipping and enter no payment info. I ordered five masks total, with the same code, to give to my mother, sister, niece, future mother in law, and another for myself.


    1. Ha ha I know! I laughed so hard when I realized we received the same products. I had just been lusting over your box a few days earlier! Thanks for the heads up on the promo code! I think I’ll purchase some for friends and family as well! You are amazing Jennifer 😘

      1. You’re welcome! You’ll need to use a different email address for each order, but you can use the same mailing address. I just used a few of my own email addresses and then my sister’s and my mom’s.
