October Birchbox Review

I've officially been a loyal Birchbox subscriber for two years! I love receiving this little boxes in my mail box and I especially love trying all the new samples and learning about new beauty products.

This month I had a great mix of products and I enjoyed sampling all of them.

The card on top truly describes my feeling about beauty products perfectly. I am obsessed with trying new products and my obsession has only gotten worse as I've received products for free through couponing (which I need to get back into ASAP)

The Pore-fessional by Benefit is something I've been waiting to try for a long time. However, I think that this was the cause of me breaking out. I used this around my nose and within a day of using it I started breaking out. Not so fun! I will try it again, but I'm pretty sure this is the product that did me in.

As I mentioned in my previous post where I opened my box, I love the name of this product. Dr Brandt's vacuum cleaner I tried last week after I started breaking out. The product hardens on your skin and turns blue. I washed it off in the shower and thought it was great because my skin felt refreshed but not dried out at all.

I have used quite a few dry shampoos and I found this Amika one to be pretty equivalent to the others I've tried. I like this product because when my hair was on its second day I felt that it was getting clean from spraying this on and there was no white powder that appears when you use some dry shampoos. I also love how dry shampoo seems to last me forever and these little bottles are great since I get to try all different kinds!

Okay this Lord and Berry sparkly eyeliner is a great idea in theory but when you get sparkles inside your eyes it doesn't seem like such a great idea anymore! I had a hard time getting it on my eyelid as well because I'm not great with pencil liner. I will continue to use this on special occasions but it definitely is not my go-to liner!

I wasn't a huge fan of the Ellovi butter because it is pretty much, butter. I thought it would be more of a creamy lotion but it's a hard substance that melts when you put it on. I find it hard to apply and it just makes me feel pretty greasy. I might try just using it on my feet before bed so I can soften up calluses but it won't make me feel too greasy if it's just on my feet.

What products have you been trying out lately?
