Birchbox - November

Birchbox November 2012

Theme

Give! But it's more likely that it's Organic themed, as three of the 5 products are from organic beauty brands.

Shipping

Very fast, give the fact that Birchbox was affected by Hurricane Sandy, I got my box remarkably fast.  And very on point with the Birchbox timeline.  So, good on you Birchbox!

Favorite Sample

The Mox Organics Pomegranate & Fig Lip Butter.  Granted, its potted. And if you don't get a good grip on the lid, good luck unscrewing it, but the product itself is nice.  Really moisturizing and weirdly leaves my lips feeling more voluptuous and lush looking once used.

Least Favorite Sample

The One Love Organics Rose Aromatic Body Serum. This was shipped in a separate little baggie, because it leaks.  The reason that I'm not a fan of this product is because it smells like roses.  I just don't care for rose scented things.

The Underperforming Sample

Model Co Fibre LASHEXTEND Mascara.  It's really dry, and isn't black enough.  On it's own it doesn't bulk the lashes hardly at all, just maybe slightly lengthens them.  It also doesn't layer that well with other mascaras.  I was disappointed by this. 

The Rest

I don't feel one way or another about them.  The Hair Powder, I feel is inappropriately packaged to be truly effective.  And the Artisan Perfume sample, well... I just... I just don't know how I feel about it.  It smells nice, but it's not something that I am going to just rush out to buy.

  2. I got the same box! Kind of irritating that they sent a men's cologne sample. I actually liked the mascara though. Although I'm not too picky when it comes to mascaras. I don't like mine to look too crazy so this one was lovely, and I like the little mirror on the packaging!
