November 2014 Birchbox
This month Birchbox had a good cause in mind. Read the details behind it and see what samples I received!
Wednesday November 12 2014
This month Birchbox partnered with (RED) to help raise money and awareness for the fight against AIDS.
The outer box was covered in facts and for every time someone shares a photo of the facts on Instagram or Twitter with #shaRED Birchbox will donate $1 up to $10,000 and apparently they have already committed to a $15,000 donation.
Since the holidays are near, Birchbox included a booklet of gifting ideas too.
The first sample I noticed in my box was Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo and it’s colorful packaging. I don’t love the Sea Buckthorn Berry smell of this product, but I think I’ll throw this in my purse in case my hair needs a perk up.
I’d be annoyed by the amount of hand cream samples I receive from Birchbox if my hands didn’t get so severely dry during the winter months. This Camille Beckman Imperial Repair Hand Therapy soaks into my skin quickly and I like the unique fragrance combination of Lemongrass Vert & Sparkling Grapefruit. I feel like my tube could have been filled more since it’s already so small, but it makes for another travel-size purse friendly item.
The skincare samples I typically receive have high price tags on the full sizes, but this Derma e Evenly Radiant Brightening Cleanser is only $15.50 for the full-size. It’s all natural and is supposed to promote clear, glowing skin, so I’ll give it a try.
The best sample in this box was the Laura Mercier Longwear Creme Eye Pencil in Violet. I love purple eyeliners and how they make my brown eyes pop. I used to use one from Almay, but am looking forward to using this one.
I also received an extra Laura Mercier sample of Tinted Moisturizer.
I always enjoy samples from the Balm. They’re like fun little magnetic books. This month I got Cindy-Lou Manizer which is a highlighter.
Here are swatches of both the Laura Mercier Violet Eye Pencil and Cindy-Lou Manizer.
The last item in my November Birchbox was a Chuao Chocolatier Firecracker ChocoPod. While I hate food in beauty boxes, pop rocks candy and dark chocolate sound pretty good to me.
