October 2015 Birchbox
In my August Birchbox post, I mentioned that the August box would be the last one that I would receive for a while since I was taking a break from my subscription. However, I had already been charged for the September box but it was lost in the mail so I was sent the October box in its place.
For the October box, Birchbox partnered with Look Good, Feel Better, an organization that helps Canadian women with cancer look beautiful and feel confident.
The box design this month was simple and serene with a water-marbled pink pattern.
The first three items are hair care products.
Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo smoothes frizzy and tangled hair with olive oil and rice protein. While I haven’t tried this yet, the scent is just wow. It smells sort of like Sweet Tarts—tangy and delicious. Birchbox also threw in a bonus sample of the matching conditioner.
For heat styling, the Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle is an elixir that locks in colour, protects from heat damage, and leaves hair silky and smooth. This item also smells amazing with notes of creamy vanilla.
The last three items are for skin, lashes, and lips.
The Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre preps skin for hydration and heals dryness.
For lashes, the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara’s water-resistant, long-lasting formula curls and adds volume.
Finally, for lips, the ModelCo Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick is highly-pigmented yet hydrating for hassle-free lips that don’t require touch-ups. I received the colour Stiletto which looks like a bright red.
I think that Birchbox curated a wonderful box for October. It included a diverse combination of products from luxury brands. I will definitely consider renewing my subscription in the future.
