Birchbox November 2013 Review!!

Hello all,

My second ever Birchbox FINALLY arrived today! I loved my first Birchbox and was very excited to see what was coming in this month, maybe I'll finally adopt a skin routine with some of the options. Let's dive in with this month's theme #MoreGood!

What's in my Box?

1. BeeKind Body Lotion - 30 mL Sample - $1.88
The Lemon-y scent is growing on me the longer it's been on my hands. The texture was a lot more gloopy than I expected, but went on nicely, and it was pretty moisturizing. Honestly, not sure if I'd purchase this full-size, not ticking any boxes for what I look for in lotion. 

2. Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil - FULL SIZE 1.4g - $18.00
I am so happy I got this in my box this month. I am all about highlighters and have yet to try a highlighter pencil. The color for me is perfect! It glides on and is going to be perfect for the mornings I'm running behind for work. The coverage is great too, not too cake-y. 

3.  WEI Pomegranate Buffing Beads - 2 Packet Sample - $1.00
Haven't tried these beads just yet, but I'm very excited to. Birchbox says to mix a full packet with a quarter-sized amount of your daily cleanser. I've tried beads in cleanser before and this seems really intriguing. 

4. WEI Golden Root Purifying Mask - 8 mL sample - $5.25
YES! A mask in one of my boxes! Haven't gotten a chance to try this yet, but I'm due for a facial (like 5 months overdue) and this will suffice for now. I'm so exciting to see if this brightens up my face like it claims. 

5. Joie Folle de Joie eau de parfum - .06 oz sample - $1.80
I love Joie's clothing and accessories, so I was very excited to receive a sample of their perfume. I love the scent, it's right up my alley. Plus I love carrying around perfume samples in my purse just in case I need them. I love the freshness of the scent and the addition of rose. 

6. Mighty Leaf  Tea Pouches - 3 packets - $4.50
I wasn't totally thrilled about knowing I was receiving tea in my box instead of chocolate, but I have to admit I am a bit happier about it now that they are in my hands. All three flavors are ones that I would drink normally and I love Mighty Leaf, looking most forward to drinking the African Nectar sample. I know Mighty Leaf has very rich and delicious flavors that don't get watered down. 

Overall, I really enjoyed my box, I am totally okay with more skincare products this month, I need to branch out. I came up with a value of just under $32.50 which is an excellent value when the box is $10 a month.
