November 2013 Birchbox


My Birchbox got to my mailbox pretty quickly this month. See what I received.

Saturday November 9 2013


My Birchbox got to my mailbox pretty quickly this month. Yay! Here’s what was inside:

November Birchbox

The Birchbox theme this month was More Good, how you can to bring more good to your life by using charitable beauty brands.

BeeKind Lotion

With winter on the way, I can really never have too much lotion. I especially like small sample size lotions that I can throw in my purse or take to work because my hands tend to get very dry. This BeeKind body lotion has a very light scent. I put this on my hands and my palms weren’t greasy, so it passes my test.

Color Club Polish

This is the third Color Club nail polish I have received from Birchbox this year. While I like Color Club, I’m never in love with BB’s color choices: green, nude, and now a silver which is called On The Rocks. On the positive side, I like this color better than the previous two.


Eyeliners seem to becoming a frequent BB sample. I usually don’t receive liquid liner though. I’m pretty happy with this Eyeko Skinny mini Liquid Eyeliner. When I do wear eyeliner, I like it thin and black so this is perfect.

Eyeko Swatch

I did a quick swatch on my hand which went on smoothly. I was impressed that it dried instantly and didn’t smudge. This is definitely a small I will probably use up.

Vasanti BrightenUp

I like trying new skincare products like this Vasanti Brighten up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. This product is apparently a customer favorite for getting a glowing, smooth complexion.

Mighty Leaf

I hate when Birchbox includes food products, especially tea. I do not drink tea, I prefer coffee. This is also at least the second time I’ve received tea this year. I’ll have to see if any of my friends want these¬†Mighty Leaf Tea pouches.


This month’s box also included a Birchbox Holiday booklet. It’s kind of like a shopper’s guide for gift ideas. Pretty much a way for Birchbox to convince fans to spend more money, but at least they’re donating a portion of the proceeds to No Kid Hungry organization.
