Birchbox November 2013

Birchbox NOV

November’s Birchbox has some things that make me think of rest and rejuvenation, and since it’s my birthday month, a little extra R&R is exactly what the doctor ordered.  Along with the products the Birchbox contained a holiday gift guide for all of the people on your list from beauty fan to hostess to the man in your life.  It’s time to start thinking about the holidays again!

But for now: This month’s box!

BBoxOct1

Tiossan Body Cream

This body cream is a moisturizing blend of organic black seed oil, organic aloe vera, and organic shea butter which is a great recipe for happy, smooth skin.  What I like about this sample is it’s a strong hydrator while still being a lighter cream.  Sometimes creams can be really thick, but this one wears more like a light lotion while still doing the work of a heavier cream.

Full Size: 8oz/ 237 ml @ $38

Sample Size: .25oz/ 7.4 ml

Sample Value: $1.18

Eyeko Mascara

This is a paraben-free formula that claims to last for a long time with it’s water-resistant wear.  The brush allows for an easy, natural curl giving nice volume and dark color to your lashes.  The packaging is a bit different, too.

Full Size: 0.29 oz @ $24.00

Sample Size: 0.13 oz

Sample Value: $10.80

Laura Mercier Lip Glacé

I’ve gotten one of these in my Birchbox before and I loved it.  These lip glosses really deliver a beautiful color and shine while keeping lips moisturized (but not sticky!).  Mine is in the shade “opal”.

Full Size: 4.5g @ $24.00

Sample Size: 2.8g

Sample Value: $14.88

Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

Yeah, that title is a bit of a mouthful.  I’m excited to offer my face a bit of rejuvenation.  The enzymes in this scrub actually break the bonds that hold dead skin cells together while the micro crystals take action on the tired skin cells, making this a dual action exfoliant.

Full Size: 4.23 oz / 120g @ $34.00

Sample Size: 20g

Sample Value: $5.67

Ahmad Teas

Every so often Birchbox throws in some fun little extras for us to try, and this month we got some tea.  As a tea drinker, I’m always up for trying different brands and types of tea, so despite the value of this being around 50 cents, I know I will get 3 new tea time experiences out of it.  Thanks for the extras!

Full Size: 40 teabags @ $7.00

Sample Size: 3 tea bags

Sample Value:$0.53

 

Total Box Value: $33.06
