Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
Full Size Price: $58.00
Sample size value is approximately: $14.47
This is a resurfacing mask that claims to target excess oil, even tone, and shed dead cells to give your skin a healthy, all natural glow. The formula of this mask is thinner than I had expected but it has a decent weight to it so it is easy to apply to the face. I did not care too much for the scent but it's not over powering so it's not a big deterrent to me. I found it worked very well at cleansing my skin and did not dry it out nor cause any irritation. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


TOCCA Crema da Mano Hand Cream in the scent "Cleopatra"
Full Size Price: $10.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.00
This is a hand cream that is loaded with natural botanicals, it has a fairly thick formula to it that applies easily. I absolutely love the scent of this cream, it contains grapefruit and cucumber which blend into a beautiful citrus note. Not only does it smell amazing but it also moisturizes the skin for a long period of time with the scent lasting for quite awhile. I will be purchasing the full size of this product as well as trying out other scents.


R + Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo
Full Size Price: $29.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.20
I do not use dry shampoos often but do think they can be a great product to have on hand. This a dry shampoo spray that claims to absorb excess oil, give hair volume and body, and add tousled texture. I found that it was easy to control the amount you needed to spray and that the formula did not dry out my hair at all. I was able to achieve extra volume and texture with this product and I liked the fresh coconut like scent that it contains. If I had a need for a product like this, I would consider purchasing this product in the full size.


Air Repair Super-Hydrating Eye Cream
Full Size Price: $23.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.59
This is a potent cream that claims to hydrate under-eye skin, reduce puffiness, brighten dark circles, and diminish fine lines. I found that this cream had a slight minty smell to it that overall had a unique lasting scent. I feel for a product like this, you would need a larger sample size and a longer testing period. I did like how moisturizing the formula felt and could see it having some long term effects. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara
Full Size Price: $14.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.00
I have tried a few Marcelle products before so I was excited to give this mascara a try. This is a hypoallergenic formula that claims to grab and curl even the smallest of lashes for a doe-eyed look. I really liked the curve that this brush has as it gives you the ability to really define the entire lash with ease. I liked how the wand also does not pick up too much product at once as it allows for less clumping and the ability to build product on without giving you spider lashes. I would purchase the full size of this product.


The value of my October Birchbox is $36.26.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $26.26.


Overall, I appreciated how varied the box was and that I was familiar with most of the brands. It's not one of my favorite boxes this year but it contained products that I overall enjoyed and could see myself using regularly. My favorite product from this month was the hand cream.
