October 2015 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Monday, October 26, 2015
This month's Birchbox was a grand slam! It contained all of my favorite products but from brands I have never tried. I was excited to dig in and start using the products. For the first time ever, I was able to use all 5 products on the same day!

Here's what was in this month's Birchbox:

1. Dinoplatz Pearl Bay Invasion Highlighter (Received sample. Full size, $33)
This not only highlights for a brighter complexion but moisturizes also. It's available in two shades. I was sent "Baby Pink Clam". It's adds a nice, subtle touch of color and gives a dewy appearance.

2. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (Received sample. Full size, $24)
I have short and straight lashes, and this mascara totally transformed my lashes. This specially formulated mascara eliminates the need for an eyelash curler. It's a built-in bonus of the mascara.

3. Macadamia Style Extend Dry Shampoo (Received sample. Full size, $25)
Let me tell you...I have a new favorite dry shampoo. I loved the way this spray was translucent. Rather than a powder based dry shampoo, this one uses rice and potato starches to absorb excess natural oils in the scalp. And it smells great. It's a keep, I tell ya.

4. BioRepublic Cucumber Breeze Fiber Mask (Received one application. Box of 10 applications, $45)
This mask is soothing and calming and a great remedy for stressed out skin. I'm going through some major peri menopause skin right now, and this mask was a welcome relief. It's also ideal for rosacea flareups where skin is often inflammed.
Touted as the little black dress of hair care, this is a must-have in your beauty arsenal. Restores overstyled hair and dry ends and brings back natural shine to dull, lifeless hair.
