Birchbox October 2015 Unboxing

Birchbox was the gateway to my subscription box addiction!  It has introduced me to lots of great products and a few that now have holy grail status for me.  I wasn’t thrilled with the sample choice this month as they were all mascaras which I don’t wear. I also didn’t really like the pre-curated boxes so I just left it to chance this month. I figured I’d get a mascara anyhow which I did but luckily the rest of the box was really nice. Let’s see what I got!

First Look

Product Card

Avene Thermal Spring Water. 1.76oz. Value $9. I’m not much for face mists typically but in the winter my face gets really dry so I think I may try this hydrating mist. It’s 100% spring water so I’m glad it doesn’t have a bunch of ingredients in it.  

Dr Jart Dermask Clearing Solution Ultra-Fine Microfiber Sheet Mask. Value $9. First off I’ll say this is a crazy price for a sheet mask but it is what it is and I was happy to use it. I actually already used this and you can check out my review in my weekly mask post here

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint. 50ml. Value $5.31.   I have heard great things about Klorane shampoo but I don’t know if I have ever tried it. I actually gave this to my mom who mentioned she was going to buy some dry shampoo. What?!?  She should know we don’t buy beauty products in this family without checking my stash first! Haha. I sent her off with several samples!  

too cool for school Dinoplatz Highlighter. #2 baby pink clam. 5ml. .16floz.
I was thrilled to see a second Korean beauty product in this box. K beauty is really hitting mainstream in the U.S.  This brand is great and I was excited to try this but unfortunately it contains olive oil which I’m allergic too. Boo!  I still think this was a great addition to the box. 

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara. Value $11.75. Here is the enviable mascara sample that I knew I would get and won’t use.  That’s ok as I know I can sell it. 

I calculate a value of $40.56 for this box and I paid $9.17. That’s a great value and I’m really happy with this box. And guess what I just renewed my Birchbox for another year and I can’t believe I’ve been getting it for 2 years now!  It’s still one of my favorite boxes.
