October Birchbox Brag

I haven't shared my Birchbox goodies in a couple months. When I bought into Birchbox, I paid for a full year subscription. I love getting my goodies each month, and I have found some fun products that I have ended up buying. I think maybe at the end of my subscription I might decide to go with another monthly product service. Not because I have anything bad to say about Birchbox, I just think I will try something new. Anywho... Here are my October goodies

This month Birchbox teamed up with goop for the box. Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference. I did go to and learned that it was started by Gwyenth Paltrow and it has some neat things, but other than that, I wasn't overly blown away by it.

Some people complain about getting food products in their box, but I don't mind. I mean I have eaten all the snacks they have sent me, and I have yet to try on all the perfume samples. This month my lifestyle extra is 3 tea bags from Mighty Leaf Teas. These are "yummy tea blends made from natural, ethically sourced ingredients." I love tea, and I will drink these, but $10 for a box of 15 tea bags is a bit steep. (Ha! When I reread this I giggled at my unintentional pun. Tea? Steep? Get it?)

I got a nice little assortment of samples: 1)Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum to brighten skin tone and fade dark spots 2) Orofluido's Beuty Elixer (a hair treatment) and per-fekt Beauty's Lip Perfection Gel in Melrose. I really wish there was a bigger sample of this, because this tinted, moisturizing gloss is something I have been looking for.

Finally, I noticed my box was a little heavier than usual this month. It was due to the FULL SIZE DDF Brightening Cleanser. I am always looking for a good facial cleanser. This one says it will even skin tone and fade any discoloration. I'm always nervous about drying out my skin, but I have tried it a few times and it seems to be doing okay so far.

Do you subscribe to any monthly boxes? Which one do you like best?

I was happy to get the cleanser, but I'm super worried it's going to freak out my skin. Hopefully it will work wonders instead :)
