My October Brichbox came in around the middle of the month again, which was nice. I haven't posted about it before now though as it really did not impress me at all. Nothing in my October Birchbox excited me to use/try. I do love the box it came in though! I will definitely be using this one for something else.
The theme for October's Birchbox is 'Positive Force'.
'At Birchbox, we know firsthand the power of beauty to change your mood, in inspire confidence, and to plain ol' make you happy.'
Birchbox partnered with Look Good, Feel Beeter, an organization that helps Canadian women with cancer look beautiful and feel confident. I like that Birchbox partnered with a Canadian organization that supports such a great cause.
In my October Birchbox I recieved:
Harvey Prince - Hello Shampoo - Sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo infused with the best-selling citrus scent, Hello there! I didn't really enjoy the last Harvey Prince product I recieved from Birchbox, hopefully this one is better!
derma e - Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask - With natural clays and nutrient-rich ingrediants, this purifyling mask exfoliates and purges pores. I like trying out new masks so I will definietly give this one a try after I finish up one of the other clay masks I have on the go!
Hi Wildflower - Hanalei - Brimming with ylang ylang and jasmine, this on-the-go tropical scent will feel like there's an invincible lei wrapped around your neck. I will start off saying I am not a fan of perfume samples that don't have a spray attached. This scent was really wet going on, it stayed wet for a few minutes. I have not had a fragrance do that before, it is also a fairly flower heavy scent, and to me, not in a good way.
W3ll People - Expressionist Mascara - All-natural, pro-grade mascara that lifts and lengthens lashes without chemicals or dyes. This is a full size, the only issue I kind of have with it is that it wasn't sealed at all. I did crack it open and seems unused but I really don't like the fact that it was not sealed. I will probably give this a try when I am needing to pull out a new mascara.
ModelCo - Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick - Highly pigmented color that glides on effortlessly, hydrating lips without the hassle of touch-ups. I recieved the color 'Stiletto' which looks to be a bright red, not a color that I would wear. When I saw the other colors available I would have much perfered 'Kitty', why do sample boxes always put in red/bright lipsticks? I am not even going to open this lipstick as I know that I am not going to wear it.
So that was my October Birchbox, like I said it was a bad month for me with Birchbox! Only 2 samples that I will eventually try out. I was happy to see that Canadians are finally getting Sample Choice!! I have already gotten the email to choose whether I choose 1 of 3 shades of their new line of shadow sticks "Loc' or a box curated with Tati Westbrook from Glam Glife Guru. I choose the box by Tati! It has a sample of the Living Proof dry shampoo,Embroylisse, as well as a shadow stick from their new line, among other things! I can't wait to get November's Birchbox! I am glad that Canadians are finally getting some of the same perks as the US, hopefully soon there won't be such a difference between the US and Canadian boxes!
Did you get a good subscription box for October? What do you think is a good beauty subscription box?
