Each month, Birchbox has a featured box you are able to choose instead of the usual monthly samples. October’s featured box looked appealing to me, so I chose to receive it instead.
Starting from the left is a sample from Oribe. It is their new gold lust dry shampoo. As always, it smelled amazing like all of the other Oribe products I have tried. I didn’t think it is the greatest dry shampoo, but it was a nice scent refresher. Next, is the Avene hydrance optimale hydrating cream. This was a nice facial moisturizer and was super rich. My skin has been getting more dry and it was a nice sample. Below that is a silk cream lipstick from Make. The color is magnolia and isn’t my favorite. It’s a nice mauve pink, but not totally me. The green tube is Glamglow’s powermud dualcleanse treatment. Glamglow products are ridiculously expensive, so I like getting samples of their products. This was a nice white clay mask. Finally, the sample from This Works is a deep pillow spray. I think this smells gross – not super calming when you don’t like the smell.
The highlight of October’s box was definitely the Oribe sample. I absolutely LOVE how Oribe products smell. The great smell alone makes up for the fact that the dry shampoo wasn’t the best I’ve tried.
Overall, October’s box was good. I hadn’t received any of these samples before which is good. I’ve been a Birchbox subscriber for over three years, so I’m bound to get repeat samples. Any box where there are no repeats is good in my book.
