Birchbox - November 2013



More Good


This is a monthly cosmetic sample subscription service from Birchbox for $10 per month including shipping. There are several different boxes, so not everyone receives the same items.  Included in my November box were the following items:
  1. Elite Therapeutics - Shampoo & Conditioner, sample size
  2. Chella - Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil, almost full size
  3. Fatty Sundays - Chocolate Covered Pretzel, sample size
  4. Dr. Jart+ - Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+, sample size
  5. Bare Love Beauty - Luxury Body Fuel, sample size
If Birchbox didn't have such a good point system for reviews and referrals, I would cancel this subscription since I haven't been liking most of the samples they have been sending me lately! Read more about their point system here. I tried the Body Fuel and it is very oily and feels quite yucky and sticky on the skin.  Perhaps, I'll just save it for really dry patches that I may get in the winter. But I usually don't get those since I moisturize daily year round.  I'm confused about the BB cream, since it doesn't come in shades yet says it's tinted? Anyone try it, what color is it? Not crazy about receiving food in a cosmetics subscription box! I'll be giving hubby the tiny pretzel. Really, they couldn't send a full sized pretzel?! I also don't like receiving shampoo or conditioner samples, since I only like to use one brand, WEN.  I'm on the fence about the Chella pencil. Check out their instructional YouTube video here.  Wow, that's a lot of uses for one product!  I may give it a try soon. This is the second one I received. The first one I sold on my Blog Sale and as a result made a super fabulous new friend! Check out her YouTube channel here! I will be selling the Dr. Jart and Elite samples on my Blog Sale along with many other items that came in my subscription boxes.  Be sure to check it out before you leave.  

Also, check out what I received in previous Birchboxes:
