Birchbox October 2017 {Behind the Scenes}

9:00 AM

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
Full Size Price: $44.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.30
This is a dry shampoo that claims to instantly clean while boosting strength and softness. I have tried this in the past and find it works quite well. I enjoy the scent as it is on the sweet side and does linger in the hair for awhile after use. I don't use dry shampoo all that often so I won't be purchasing the full size.

The Beauty Crop Glow Milk Liquid Highlighter
Full Size Price: $19.50
Sample size value is approximately: $9.75
This is a liquid highlighter that can be used on the cheekbones, bridge of nose, and on your cupid's bow to give a lit from within look. I don't tend to use liquid highlighters very often but this one is absolutely stunning, it has a rose gold hue to it that blends with ease and a little goes a long way. I also liked the scent it carries as it is on the fruity side. I think it compliments any skin tone and is a unique formula overall. I would be interested in purchasing the full size.

OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil
Full Size Price: $32.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.55
This is a hair and body oil that contains a blend of absinthium, rose hip, and shea oils. It is a thin formula so application can be a bit tricky as it comes out quickly. The oil itself has a lovely rose scent to it that dries quickly into the skin and on the hair. I didn't find it to be very moisturizing but it did soften the skin and seemed to give a bit of a shine. I don't see myself purchasing the full size as I don't have a real need for a product like this.

Lipstick Queen Lip Liner in shade "Nude"
Full Size Price: $18.00
Sample size value is approximately: $9.00
This is a lip liner that contains a waterproof formula that pairs well with any nude lipstick colors. Since it carries a neutral color, it can work as a base for other shades of lip products as well. I really love the smooth formula this carries and found that it complimented my nude lipstick very well. I also found it was long lasting and did not settle into any fine lines. I will be purchasing the full size and other shades from this line.

Avene Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum
Full Size Price: $38.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.80
This is a rehydrating serum that claims to boost hydration and help along your subsequent skincare steps. It is also safe for sensitive complexions. I have tried several Avene products in the past and do enjoy them so I was excited to give this a try. The formula is not too thin or thick, and it blends perfectly into the skin. It does give a slight cooling effect and seems to work well as a base for my moisturizer. I enjoy how well it works at giving my dry skin more moisture and I will be purchasing the full size.

My October Birchbox is valued at $33.40.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so this gives me an additional value of $23.40.

Overall, I enjoyed this month's box as it had more beauty related items. I found that the skincare products were fairly decent but I do tire of the same hair-care samples. My favorite product from this month's box was the lip liner.
