Birchbox Unboxing - November 2014

Friday, November 21, 2014

I love getting my monthly Birchboxes. Little, TSA approved samples of products I'd love to try. This month was all about giving and giving back. Partnering with (RED), all birch boxes this month were clad in a red box to raise awareness for the fight against AIDS. It is November, it's time to give back and give thanks. Here are some of the awesome products that I am thankful to have in my box.
Amika Nourishing Mask // I tried out this mask a couple days ago and I love it so far. It's great for giving my hair of bit of extra pampering on days where I can tell it's a bit beat up. With all the holiday parties coming up, I know I'll be teasing and twisting my hair into all kinds of styles an it will be great to have this hair mask to give my locks a bit more love.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Cream Lip Stain // This sample came in the cutest little packaging, perfect for the teeny tiny purses that I carry on a night out. It's a super creamy texture on the lips, almost like a balm, but it had a playful pink color to it. It did a light stain, but nothing too intense. I prefer more standout shades so I may have to pass this product on to my sister to try, but I'm sure she'll love it.
Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion // This lotion was a bit of a miss for me, but it may just be because I have a cornucopia of amazing body lotions already. It did have a nice marine-y smell to it and it was very light, but it just didn't do much for me in the moisturizing department. I'll have to pass this one along as well.
The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer // I absolutely love The Balm's Mary Lou-Manizer so I was so excited to get a small sample of the Cindy-Lou shade. This one is more a peachy pink in color so it will definitely add a bit of color to my face. This sample is perfect to put in my 'on the go' touch up case so I can sweep a bit on after work before heading out to meet up with friends.
Dang Coconut Chips // Coconut chips...i'm intrigued? I had never heard or seen this chips around before. I've had shaved coconut, but never had coconut in chip form so I'll definitely have to try these out. I'm always looking for healthy afternoon snacks for an afternoon perk-me-up.
Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask // I've heard amazing things about this clay mask that has been infused with a blend of exotic teas. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm dying too. The reviews said it did an amazing job of firming and smoothing your skin, all the while giving it a soft glow. Woah, it gets a lot done in only 8 minutes.

Have a favorite product from this month's birchbox?

  1. I love monthly subscription boxes (I currently get 4 but they're all around $10 so it's all good!) Even when I get not so great boxes one month, I realize that for the price I'm paying, the 5 little samples are worth it because I get to try out new products I wouldn't have better. That Amika Nourishing Mask sounds interesting, I'd love to try it <3
