My October Birchbox

This month's Birchbox was all about taking a break. "Think: masking while movie-marathoning, or using a night cream before getting a full night's rest. No matter how you love to unwind, we're bringing you rejuvenating products to make the of your you-time." Here's what I received:

Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse (.8oz/5.7 oz $38) | Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk (.5 fl oz/6.75 fl oz $22) | Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara (full size $12.95) | Air Repair Super-Hydrating Eye Cream (.1 fl oz/.5 fl oz $23) | Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque (.5 fl oz/5 fl oz $28) 

"Each luxe pouf gives hair an exaggerated sense of body and structure, without the slightest hint of crunch. All-day memory leaves styles supremely soft yet set, for hair that's thicker, fuller, larger than life." Birchbox is on an Oribe fix! Unfortunately my hair dryer fused out while I was using this so didn't get full results lol but it did feel like it made my hair a little crispy. Day 1 isn't always the best for my hair, Day 2 is when the magic happens and that was the case with this mousse.

"A cleansing masque that helps to purify skin and visibly minimize pores. Formulated with Amazonian White Clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores while oatmeal and aloe vera helps soothe." It says to leave on until it dries (about 10 minutes) but it was tingling too much for my comfort so I washed it off. I did like the results but will have to use sparingly as my sensitive skin seems to not love it.

This was my customized sample this month. I love Juice Beauty products and have missed them in my boxes. "This creamy formula deeply cleanses and removes makeup with organic neroli and grape seed oils, while soothing normal, aging, or sensitive skin with organic chamomile and calendula." Really enjoyed this but still prefer my DHC Cleansing Oil.

"This potent cream reduces puffiness, hydrates delicate undereye skin, and even diminishes fine lines. Plus, it keeps working to protect and moisturize skin for hours." It's a tiny sample but so far I'm liking it.

"This mascara’s curvaceous brush perfectly hugs the natural curve of the eye and grabs even the smallest lashes thanks to its tapered end. With evenly distributed bristles, eyelashes are spread out for a wide-eyed look. Perfect, even coating from root to tip extends lashes for incredible length while the brush lifts lashes at the root to enhance your natural curl. The silky, buildable formula holds in place all day without clumping or flaking." Was in need of a new mascara so was excited to see one in my box. It has a curved brush. I just layered it over a lengthening mascara and enjoy the results. It lasted all day but did started to dry up after hour 11. I do prefer a volumizing mascara so I may start layering it with another.

What did you receive in your Birchbox this month?
