PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Touchable Curl Cream
Full-size price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.00
This is a hair cream that claims to provide soft curls that look natural and provide definition and control so you can set your hair straightener aside for the day. This product is unique in the fact that it combines the silky texture of a serum with the light hold of a cream. First of all, this curl cream smells amazing. It has a light floral undertone with a mix of sweet citrus scents. I found that the product did not weigh my hair down and it helped manage the frizz that I struggle with consistently. I could see this product being a go to and something I can rely on to keep my hair under control. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Raw Spirit Fragrances Wild Fire Eau de Parfum
Full-size price: $40 to $90
Sample size value is approximately: $0.50
This perfume combines the woody aroma blend of amber, jasmine, ylang ylang, cedarwood, and musk with Australian sandalwood. While this scent is fairly long lasting, it's not a scent I prefer. If you enjoy a mix of musky tones and a mature overall scent profile then this would be perfect for you. I found the overall quality of the perfume to be fairly decent as it takes only a few sprays to provide long lasting scent for the day. I would not purchase this particular scent but would be interested in others from this brand.

MAKE Skin Illuminator
Full-size price: $34.00
Sample size value is approximately: $29.00
This product is extremely unique as I have never seen something that combines these two products into one. This is a skin illuminator that also works as a skin-correcting base. I really love how shimmery yet subtle the highlighter part of this product is. It provides just the right amount of glow and shine without making you look like you applied a pound of glitter to your face. I can't say I noticed a lot of change in relation to the skin-correcting claim but with the highlighter capability alone, I would purchase the full size of this product.

LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in the shade Wildest Dreams
Full-size price: $8.00
This lipstick is a part of Birchbox's brand new brand of makeup LOC. This is a very vibrant red matte shade and is absolutely perfect for upcoming holiday party looks. This shade is not too dark and provides a beautiful tint that lasts throughout the day. Be mindful when applying that before it fully sets, it can smudge easily. I found that when applied with a lipliner that it had really amazing staying power and it did not dry out my lips. I enjoy the overall formula and love the matte set it provides. This is a full size product in this month's box as well! I would consider purchasing the other shades in this line.

(MALIN + GOETZ) grapefruit face cleanser + bonus vitamin e face moisturizer
Full-size price: $32 for the cleanser, $46 for the moisturizer
Sample size values are approximately: $2.00 for the cleanser, $1.15 for the moisturizer
This product came with a bonus! The first product is a cleanser that dissolves dirt and oil, cleans up breakouts, and balances your skins natural pH. It has a very nice citrus scent that isn't too overpowering and it feels very gentle on the skin. I enjoyed how well it worked and the fact that it cleaned off my makeup with ease and left my skin feeling very soft and clean. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

The bonus item is the matching vitamin e face moisturizer and while the formula was thinner than I expected, almost a watery base to it. I found that it hydrates very well without the need to apply too much of the product. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

The value of my November Birchbox is valued at $43.65 with the bonus and $42.50 without.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so I received an added value of $33.65 with bonus, $32.50 without.

Overall, I am fairly pleased with this month's box. While I am very much over the perfume samples and will be opting out of them if I can. The other products were great and I especially was happy to see a red lipstick for the holidays! I also loved that I received a full size product this month.
