Birchbox: October 2015

DSCN0964This month’s Birchbox theme is Positive Force. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned each box has a theme…

Anyway, this month Birchbox partnered with The Estee Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The box is an all pink box with plenty of goodies inside.

I will talk about the products from left to right. First up, is an elixir mist from Rusk. The label on the bottle says it is a thermal shine mist. I sprayed it on my hair when I first opened the box. I am not a huge fan of the smell, but it did make my hair shinier. Next is the Borghese fango purificante clay cleanser. I am intrigued by this as it isn’t a clay mask, but a clay cleanser. I really enjoy clay masks so I’m excited to try this. Next, is a soothing moisture mask from Avene. The mascara sample is from Stila and it is their huge extreme lash mascara. Lastly, I received a perfume sample from Calypso St. Barth.

Funny story about the perfume sample. I received this month’s box last week and had rushed home from work because I had a haircut appointment to get to and didn’t want to be late due to being stuck in traffic. I scarfed down some dinner and then opened up my box. I didn’t test smell the perfume and told my husband, “Taking a risk!” as I sprayed it on my wrist before heading out the door. I do not like the scent at all and it was a terrible risk to take.

I am pleased with this month’s box. I feel I received a good mix of products and will like all of them but the perfume.

Up next, I am going to talk about the October’s Ipsy Glam Bag I received.
