Birchbox November 2016 {The Finishing Touch}

amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.00
I am not someone who uses dry shampoos very often but I had never heard of a dry conditioner before. This lightweight mist acts like a traditional conditioner working to detangle and soften your hair to make it more manageable and lustrous. It smells absolutely amazing and the scent does linger in your hair for some time. I did find that it made my hair feel almost refreshed when using it and it did help soften it up as well. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Marcelle New-Age LumiPOWER 3-in-1 Moisturizer
Full Size Price: $26.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.71
This is a 3 in 1 anti-aging and anti-fatigue moisturizer that claims to combine the powers of a day cream, night cream, and eye cream. It has an oil free formula that is made to fight the signs of aging and fatigue, protect skin from environmental stressors, and give you a radiant glow. It also claims to be made with a formula that is not irritating and safe for those with sensitive skin. I liked the way the formula felt on my skin as it did not dry it out nor cause any irritation. I feel like with any skincare product, you need as much time as possible to see more accurate results so it's hard for me to truly back up any claims it makes. I do like how it feels and could see it doing a fairly good job overall. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Number 4 Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil
Full Size Price: $26.00
Sample size value is approximately: $6.50
This is a hair oil that promises to give your hair a coveted movie star shine with many reparative benefits. I am not someone who uses a lot of oils in my hair as I tend to find them a bit heavy and greasy looking once applied. This oil carries a more earthy smell that I am not loving but it isn't too strong so it isn't a full deterrent. The formula itself is light and a little does go a long a way. I wish the sample had come in a pump bottle like the full size does as it does make it a bit more of a hassle to apply. Overall, I don't think this product is for me but I could see the benefits for someone who needs it.


WEI Tibetan Chrysanthemum Correcting Eye Treatment Pads
Full Size Price: $60.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.00
This is a pack of correcting eye treatment pads that are pre-soaked in herbal ingredients that claim to reduce puffiness and eliminate dark circles in ten minutes. I found these to be very soothing to use and they held quite well on my face. I did see some results from this after just one use, my under eye area was less puffy and overall seemed more moisturized. I really enjoyed the light scent that they carry as well. I would consider purchasing more of these.


jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in shade "Forever Pink"
Full Size Price: $25.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.00
This is a 2 in 1 product that is a lip and cheek stain formulated to adjust to your body's unique chemistry to create your own customized hue. It is enriched with natural ingredients like olive and avocado oil, rose flower wax, and beeswax. As a lip color, I noticed no change in coloring but did find it to feel quite moisturizing. When applied directly on my skin, there was more of a shimmy pink color to it so I feel this would work better on my cheeks rather than my lips. I do like the smooth formula and think it is a unique product idea. I would be interesting in trying other shades.


The value of my November Birchbox is $22.21.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $12.21.


Overall, I was kind of in between about this month's box. It had some products I enjoyed but nothing was really that exciting, this would be one of my least favorite boxes from this year. My favorite product from this month's box was the dry conditioner.
