inside my birchbox: november 2012
I was happily surprised to see my November Birchbox sitting in my mailbox this afternoon – I’d completely forgotten it was on its way. And an even happier surprise: it’s a great one this month! Here’s what I got:
Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper: I haven’t tried this product or brand yet, so I’m excited to give this a whirl. I keep going back to DevaCurl products no matter what other brands I try…but maybe this will be a winner? At $10 for the full-size, it’s certainly kinder on the wallet than my current hair care regimen.
J.R. Watkins Lavender Hand & Cuticle Salve: My hands are already starting to feel the wrath of winter, so this is a great product for me. I love that this salve is almost completely natural, and it smells good, too. The ingredients are simple (canola oil, sweet almond oil, beeswax, etc.) so I probably wouldn’t pay full-price when I could make a similar concoction in the kitchen, but I’m happy to use this great-sized sample!
Sumita Color Contrast Eye Pencil in Ziba (lime green): This full-sized eyeliner has a wonderfully smooth formula, though I can’t say I can see myself wearing lime green eyeliner with much frequency. How would you use this pencil?
ModelCo SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss: Another full-sized product, I’m impressed! It smells like something I would have worn in 7th grade…which I actually sort of enjoy. The color is very sheer and it’s quite glossy, though it wore off pretty quickly on me. The mini-mirror on the side of the tube is a smart idea!
Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod: I will admit that I ate this about 4 seconds after I snapped the photo. Delicious! Mine was Honeycomb, with amber honey carmelized in crispy pieces in dark chocolate. Yum.
