Birchbox November 2015

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $10/month

I received my November Birchbox earlier in the month, but I'm just getting around to writing my review. It's been a very busy month. I peeked at what I would be receiving this month, so this box wasn't a surprise when it arrived.

Here is a first glance into the November box. I love all the pretty boxes they've been designing! They're so much better than the plain brown boxes they used to come in.

Birchbox always includes an information card explaining everything in the box.

This month the sample choice was from the LOC line, which was created by Birchbox and YouTube beauty star Tati Westbrook. I chose the Vibrant Matte Lipstick in First Kiss. This is a nude lipstick, but this color didn't work for my skin tone. It was too tan for my pale skin. I need a shade with a bit more pink in it. I really liked the formula of this lipstick, though. It wasn't sticky and it felt soft and moisturizing!

I also received Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum. This has a high concentration of thermal spring water and felt very moisturizing. It sank into my skin nicely and is perfect for the cold weather we are having. I really liked this!

I hate receiving perfume as samples in my Birchbox, so I wasn't too thrilled to receive Cartier La Panthere. This is a musk scent that is too strong for me. I'm not really a perfume wearer, but when I do wear a scent it has to be very light and fresh. This is the opposite of anything I would pick out for myself, so this definitely wasn't for me.

The Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment was a product I wanted to try, so I was happy to get this. It volumizes, smooths, conditions, strengthens, and adds polish. It says to apply this to damp hair and blow dry, but I've been very lazy and have been letting my hair air dry, so I put this in damp hair and styled my hair when dry. It had more bounce and made my hair soft and smooth. Plus my hair wasn't staticky after using this! I will be using this a lot!

The final sample I received was Oribe Masque for Beautiful Color. This smelled like the other Oribe products I've tried, which I really liked. It has a subtle perfume scent that is very pretty. This made my hair moisturized, but didn't weigh down my fine hair. My hair had more volume and was soft and smooth. I haven't found an Oribe product I didn't like, so I was happy this was included in my box!

I also received the Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color as a bonus. I loved both of these products as much as the masque. They all made my hair smell great and have body and softness. I was very happy I was able to try all the products together. I may have to purchase this whole set.

I was very happy with my November Birchbox. I received a couple products that didn't work for me, but I loved the hair care products and the serum. I think they all will be making their way into my daily regimen. I can't wait to see what I get next month. I missed out on the Birchbox plus add to box items for December. They sold out right away. I would have loved the Rifle Paper Co calendar, but I was a bit too late. I also loved the toolbox for make-up, but missed out on that too. I'm sure there will be many other products I'll want too. They have a sale coming up for Black Friday, so stay tuned for that. And remember Birchbox makes a great gift for the the guys and girls in your life!
