My October Birchbox

It's that time of month again, no not that time. It's Birchbox time!  The months come and go and I'm always surprised with what comes in my boxes. This month, was actually one of the better ones!

This month was all about the Beauty Buzz. It was all about the products that people like to 'obsess' over. It's all about their favorites, some were award winners, celeb favorites, and even up and comers. They even have a magazine that includes cheat sheets to buzzwords and a round up of the top products and trends. 

Miss Jessie's Original Creme de Creme Conditioner [$16.00 for 12oz] - Well...I'm going to start with one of the worse products in this month's Birchbox. Now, I've never heard of this product before, and I don't know much about the line, but this did not do it for me. I found that it didn't condition my hair very well, and overall just really didn't do much for me. You see, the second I put it on my hair I wanted to cry. It smells like the toner that I used to use when I would dye my hair...not a good sign. So I took it off. My hair smelled like it the entire next day. I got two uses out of this sample, but I could have gotten more. I just couldn't do it again. The smell turned me off completely to this. 

Folle de Joie eau de parfum [$98.00 for 3.4 fl oz] - I really liked this perfume. Will I buy it when my sample runs out? Probably not. It's a very fresh, light perfume. It's quite flowery but it's definitely not overpowering by any means of the situation. 

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit [$24.50 for 3.3 fl. oz; 2 muslin cloths: 36 x 36 cm] There is nothing more in the world that I want for a cleansing product than this. I've lusted after this product for quite some time now, but I could never bite the bullet and just buy it. Luckily for me, I received this in one of my BirchBoxes. After trying it for a couple of days, it's already convinced me that I need to buy the larger bottle when this little one runs out. Now, you may be thinking that it's a little pricy for a cleanser, but trust me. It's for the best. It smells good, works great, and a little goes a long way.

ChapStick Hydration Lock: I mean, it's chapstick. What more can I say? It's supposed to be a new formula, but my lips are forever insanely chapped so it takes more than a little chapstick to help them. Do I like the smell? Not so much. Do I like the flavor? Not at all. But it'll do the trick whenever I need it to.

Liz Earle Pure Muslin Cloths [$6.00 for 2] - These go with the Liz Earle cleanser that I received in my BirchBox. I'd definitely consider purchasing some more Muslin cloths if & when I do end up buying the full sized product. 

POP Beauty Acqua Lacquer [$14.00] - I absolutely, positively hated this product. From the weird applicator, to the really not so great formula, it's just not for me. The product smells really funny, and it is insanely tacky. It's one of those lip glosses that if you're riding in the car with the windows down, you'll definitely get it stuck in your hair. The applicator is not good for attempting to put it on, and it smells really funny. Will I buy this? Definitely not. I already gave it away.

And that's it! I liked my Birchbox this month and it was really good, besides the two products that we're really for me. 

Have you gotten a BirchBox recently? Would you sign up for it?
