October Birchbox Unboxing

Hey everyone, today I will be unboxing one of my favorite subscription boxes, my Birchbox. If you are unfamiliar with Birchbox, it is a beauty subscription box that comes every month with 5-6 deluxe samples in a beautiful box for just $10 a month. Join me by clicking here!

If you remember, last month was incredibly disappointing, but this month was a bit better.

So let’s get into it.

First of all, let’s just talk about this box. When I think of October and fall in general, the last thing I think of is plants and bright colors. I was really hoping for something much more…spooky.


The theme for the month was “Behind the Scenes” and was supposed to be full of “secret weapon” products to help simplify the routine.IMG_0636

Here is an overview of my products.IMG_0637

There is also a card announcing the Holiday Shop that Birchbox opens each year. IMG_0639

The first item in my box is the Avene Hydrance Hydrating Cream. I have received this in previous boxes and I’m not really a fan of it. In the cooler seasons, I especially need moisture so the idea of this was great, but I’m not a fan of this specific moisturizer. IMG_0640

The next item is one of the only items I actually liked from the box, the Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil. I have received a few items from this brand and I have loved all of them. This has such a nice scent to it and really helps tame my frizzy hair. IMG_0641

Next up is the Smashbox Pore Minimizing Photo Finish Primer. I have never been a huge fan of the Smashbox brand and I’ve also never really had an issue with large pores so this item didn’t feel very personalized to me. That being said, it does the job, it’s just not one of my favorites.IMG_0642

The next item is another item that I actually enjoy using. It is the Lipstick Queen Liner in the shade Nude. The only issue I have with this product is that the “Nude” color is actually closer to maroon or brown. It is a beautiful color but I would never call it nude. This does last very long but when it is on, it is beautiful.IMG_0643IMG_0644

The last item is the Purlisse Charcoal and Licorice Pore Refining Sheet Mask. I absolutely LOVE sheet masks and this was no exception. I didn’t notice anything super special about this mask but I really did enjoy using it. IMG_0645

Overall, I’m not super thrilled with everything in here and I don’t expect that I will be purchasing any of these items.IMG_0646
