BIRCHBOX -- November 2013

Hey everyone! Thankfully Birchbox has redeemed itself after last month. And I'm actually getting my November box posted in.. you know, November. Look at us. Winning all around!

Here's what I got:

ALOXXI ColourCare Volumizing & Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner | $22, $23 -- The shampoo is free of sulfates, parabens, and sodium chloride. Both are cruelty-free and supposed to help prevent breakage. They smell similar to Pantene.

COLOR CLUB Baldwin Blues | $8 -- A dusty cerulean blue, Baldwin Blues is the perfect fall-to-winter transitional shade. My fellow MABB member, Brittney from BellBelleBella was kind enough to let me share her swatch with you:

CHELLA Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil | $18 -- I originally got one of these in one of my first Ipsy bags. It's a good pencil, but I don't know about it doing "10 different things." I use it on my bottom water line to keep my eyes looking bright and alert.

FATTY SUNDAYS Chocolate Covered Pretzel (Lifestyle Extra) | Pack of 5, $6.95 -- I got the Toffee Crunch sample and it was okay. Could have used more toffee flavor, even though it was completely coated in the stuff. I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase them.

This month's box also included a holiday pamphlet. I haven't looked through it, and I'd have rather had an extra item than the book, but I'm sure some people enjoyed it.

Like I said, better than last month. However, I'd rather have gotten a new item versus one I've already gotten from Ipsy (I know that's the chance I take with subscribing to both, but it's still kinda disappointing) and maybe another item than the holiday book. All in all, not a bad box though!

RATING 3.5 out of 5 STARS
