October 2012 Birchbox- My Box!

I knew that my Birchbox would be coming but I was still super surprised and excited when my Husband brought it into me today!  I don't know what it is but I still get super excited every month when I get my boxes!!  This month I was sent a goop box, which I didn't want!!!

Anyway.......

My October 2012 Birchbox!!!


This month I received 6 samples, here they are.

Caudalie, Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
Brighten your skin tone and fade dark spots with this grape-derived antioxidant serum

I have heard of Caudalie before, I have used some of their skin moisturizer in the past and I have really liked it.  Caudalie can be pretty pricey.  The samples that I have been sent in the past are small and I can't really get a feel for them before the sample is gone.  So while it is nice to get samples from higher priced companies, I don't like it at the same time because they send out itty bitty samples.

This smells okay, I can't really describe what it smells like but it's not bad.  I put this one and it actually stung for a minute but it went away after a minute or so.  Everything I have heard about his stuff is how great it is and how it actually does help remove dark spots from acne, scars or just damaged skin.  It does not have Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates.

Full Size: 1 oz $79.00
Sample Size: 0.06 fl oz $4.74



• DDF®, Brightening Cleanser
This foaming gel uses an all-star team of glycolic and salicylic acids to exfoliate and purify pores.

First of all this smells like black licorice which makes me want to throw up.  I honestly can not stand the smell of black licorice so there is no way that I will be able to rub this all over my face, no way.
There is also a warning that this product contains AHA (which is known to cause stinging) and that you skin will be sensitive to the sun so if you do use this you need to make sure to wear sunscreen or you will most likely get burnt.

Yeah, Thanks but no thanks!

Full Size: 8.5 oz $38.00
Sample Size: 4.5 fl oz $20.11



•per-fékt Beauty, Lip Perfection Gel in Melrose
Part tinted gloss and part moisturizing lip treatment, this multitasker has you covered on all fronts.

Really, I paid for this sample?  This looks like something that I would get out of a magazine!!  While I love the packaging of it, this lip gel is good for one use and thats it!!!  I do like this color and Im excited to try it out.  The back of the flower wheel shows all the colors that they have which is so nice to see!!

Full Size: .33 fl oz $24.00
Sample Size: 0.002 fl oz $0.14



Miracle Skin Transformer™, SPF20 Face
Swap out your foundation for this all-in-one primer, serum, and face tint, which gives skin a flawless finish.

I am really, really excited to try this out.  I just wish it were umm, BIGGER!!!  This really is a pamphlet that I would find inside a magazine!!!  At least there are two packages I guess.
They have 7 shades available for sale ranging from translucent to deep dark, the sample I received is in medium.

It says that this is a 5 in one product.  It is supposed to hydrate, prime, enhance, mattify and protect your skin.  It is free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, wax, mineral oils and talc.

Like I said, I am excited to try this and I will give you all a full review once I try it out!

Full Size: 1.7 fl oz $48.00
Sample Size: 2 .02 fl oz packages (0.04 total) $1.13




LIFESTYLE EXTRAS

LUNA Fiber, Chocolate Raspberry
These fiber-packed bars are a goop face.  Keep them on hand at all times.

I tried these, hated them, spit it out, the end.

I can not eat diet bars, protein bars, fiber bars, ugh none of those bars!!!  The raspberry filling was also almost non- existent.

Full Size: Pack of 15 $14.95
Sample Size: 1 bar $0.99



• Mighty Leaf Tea, Assorted Teas
Swap your afternoon latte for these yummy tea blends, made from natural, ethically sourced ingredients. 

I don't like tea so I will pass these over to my Father in Law.  Im sure that he will love them!!!

Full Size: Box of 15 $9.95
Sample Size: 3 pouches $1.99

Box total: $29.10

I am happy about the miracle skin transformer and the lip gel but I wish they were bigger, of course the two things I want to try are the smallest!!  I also don't understand why I got 2 food products this is supposed to be a beauty box!  This is the absolute worst Birchbox that I have ever received and I finally understand why some people get so upset with there boxes.

You can sign up for Birchbox here, even though after this box I can't say that I recommend it right now!

  1. This was my first month to get birchbox, it wasn't a bad box, not a goop box, and the items were okay, I hope they send me a better one next month :)

    1. I usually LOVE my Birchbox, this is the first month where I really am disappointed but at least it only cost me $10!! I thought that the non-goop boxes looked the best. I didn't pick when they sent me the email asking if I wanted a goop box or regular box but I did get a goop box.

      Thank you for stopping by!!!

    1. Is your subscription over? I have found a lot of products that I really like and others that I hate. I just figure its a good way to try things for only $10!!! I just think Birchbox has kinda gone downhill with their samples lately, I don't think its right to send anyone a sample that I could find in a magazine!!

      Thanks for stopping by!!!

    1. I actually did try it last night, I did make a promise that I would try everything in my boxes. I loved that it is a extremely low sud cleanser, which is the best for you skin but I just could not handle the smell. My skin felt really dry after but it was completely fine after I applied moisturizer. I would't say that I loved it or hated it. I am going to try it again tonight and see how I feel about it after a second use.

      XOXO Tiffany
