October 2013 Birchbox



Hey everyone! Ok seriously.. where did October go? It seems like no sooner did I get my subscription boxes last month than it was already November. That's not okay!

I know I always try to get my box posts up in the actual month, but better late than never amiright?

Here's what I got in Birchbox this month:

Alison Raffaele Reality Base Foundation | $38. I mean.. Well, it would have been nice to actually receive a shade that would match my skintone. I don't know why on earth they would ever think I'm a "Skintone 3" but that's what I was sent. Wearing this would either make me look like an Oompa Loompa or Snooki's skinny, long-lost cousin. Into the donate pile it goes.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser | $21.50. Part of a 2-step process that is supposed to purify and exfoliate your face. The cleanser smells nice, light, and fresh and I always like new face things to try.

Liz Earle Pure Muslin Cloth | 2 cloths, $6. This is the second part of the 2-step process. Honestly, I could care less about the cloth. I'm not going to use it, I think it's silly. I might see if my mom wants it since I can't really donate half of a "kit."

POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer | $14. The shade I received is Flowering Fuschia. It's a sticky, sheer gloss that smells and tastes like peppermint. I've been a fan of other POP lip products, but I can't get behind this one. It literally made all the skin on my lips gunk up and peel off within an hour of putting it on.  And yes, I exfoliated my lips beforehand. Uhhh... No. No. NO.

ChapStick Hydration Lock (Birchbox Find Alert) | No price listed. Every so often, Birchbox does these little random "extras" of regular stuff that they love. I need another lip balm like I need a hole in my head. I could have done without this, although it is better than the Bic pen that I received last time. Not that I minded receiving a pink pen.. but a pen? Really?


Ok, so is it wrong of me to rename Birchbox "Bustbox" this month? Seriously, I'm not impressed. This box gets one star simply because I might like the face cleanser once I get around to trying it after I'm finished reviewing some other face products. Hopefully my November box will be better!

RATING: 1.0 out of 5 STARS
