November 2014 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
I'm late getting this post up. When we returned from vacation last month, my Birchbox was among the accumulated mail. I finally had a chance to open the box over the weekend. Unfortunately, the fun mail wasn't a priority. But, it was worth the wait. Lots of good little beauties this month.

I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I will continue my Birchbox subscription into the new year. It has afforded me introductions to many products that I may not otherwise know, but I'm just not sure it's right for me. I may try another type of beauty box subscription instead. If you have a favorite, please leave a comment and let me know.

In this month's box were the following products:

1. Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash (Received sample. Full size, $15)
For me, shower gel is all about the scent, and this one is lovely. It's infused with marine extracts for a soothing and refreshing scent. It lathers well and hydrates too.

2. theBalm cosmetics Cindy-Lou Manizer Highlighter (Received sample. Full size, $24)
This shimmery, soft pink highlighter is perfect for cheekbones, eyelids, or forehead. Dust on gently for a luminous appearance.

3. Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Starter Kit (Received sample. Full size, $34)
This lightweight cream calms skin and packs a punch in hydration.

4. Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive (Received sample. Full size, $39)
This effective and gentle peel quickly dissolves dead skin to leave the skin smooth and squeaky clean.

5. amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo (Received sample. Full size, $21)
I love dry shampoo. Since I've cut back on daily washes, I've relied on it heavily. This one has a nice clean scent and leaves behind no powdery residue.

Bonus: Justin's Chocolate Almond Butter (Received sample. Full size, $13).
