Birchbox Review: November
Sorry, I'm a few weeks behind. This is what I received in last month's Birchbox.
AYRES Midnight Tango Body Butter | Full-size, $28
I see on The Blogs that a lot of people like body butter, particularly the Josie Maran body butter, but I'm not really a body butter person. I prefer my lotion slightly medicinal & dispensed via pump. That being said, I liked this body butter, but I'll probably stick with my Curel Itch Defense. #womenbeitching
Color Club Cocktail Hour Collection Nail Polish | Full-size, $8
You know, I've come around to these little Color Club polishes. I didn't like them at first, but they stay on just as well as the bigger brands (OPI, Essie) as long as you use a good base & top coat. And I actually like the little brush. The color I got is On The Rocks. It's not 100% my color, but maybe I'll try it. If you want this color, let me know.
Eyeko Black Magic Mascara | Full-size, $24
This mascara is totally fine. I have trouble with the curved brush, but that's user error. I keep getting mascara on my nose & eyelid. I'm a drugstore mascara gal & if I were going to upgrade to $20 mascara, I'd buy Dior or Benefit. This one has great reviews on Birchbox, but I don't think it's that special. And I definitely don't think it's "magic".
Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Extreme Renewal Exfoliating Facial | Full-size, $38.50
I haven't used this yet. Sorry! I'm confused about it's application process. But it's a big sample!
Okay, I just read how to use it & it's a mask, not a cleanser, so that makes more sense. I thought it was a cleanser you left on for 10 minutes. I'm pretty into masks. I'll try this & report back.
Ahmad Tea London Assorted Teas | Full-size, $7
