Birchbox Review: October 2012

If you don't know about Birchbox, it is a monthly subscription service.  For $10 a month, you get a box of 4 to 5 high-end skincare, makeup, and/or hair care products to sample.  Sometimes there are also "lifestyle samples", like an organic granola bar, tea, etc.  Some products are even full-size!

It is a really fun thing to get in the mail!  Plus, I am a product junkie and love being able to try all these different products.  Check out the website for more information!

This month's theme is: Transformations.

Birchbox October 2012

Products Included:

1. Lucy B Pink Frangipani and Wild Jasmine Roll-On Perfume Oils - I found both of these scents nice, though I rarely like any perfume samples.  The Pink Frangipani mentions "notes of pineapple, heliotrope, and coconut milk."  It smells like a very sweet honeysuckle to me.  The Wild Jasmine has "notes of waterlily, white ginger, and magnolia."  I definitely smell the magnolia.  It reminds me of going to my Mamaw's house in the summer when I was a kid.
2. Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel - I really liked this hair gel. It is a clear, light gel that really seemed to help my curls stay hydrated and nice.  I felt like it made my curls more defined while keeping the humidity from frizzing things out.  I wish I had this gel as a teen growing up in the South. lol
3. theBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer - LOVE this and bought the full-size product.  It is a gorgeous, champagne-colored powder with shimmer that can be used as a highlighter or eyeshadow.  It is really a lovely shade, with a smooth, velvety texture.
4. Vitivia Pro:Vitamins A15 and C10 - I really loved these.  I put them on before bed.  Both of them are really smooth gels that made my face feel very soft and smooth.  And I loved that they came in just the perfect amount for application.

Extra
Luna Protein Bar in Chocolate Peanut Butter - I love Luna bars.  I usually keep them in the house for those times when I am famished and have to run out the door.  This one was pretty good flavor and texture-wise.
