Beauty Haul – October Birchbox

Earlier this year I took a few months off of Birchbox because I wasn’t all that impressed with what I was receiving. It was mostly one time use shampoo and conditioner or hair related that I wouldn’t use. I missed the makeup and skincare items. In August I realized how much I missed the days when a pretty Birchbox was waiting in my mailbox. I updated my profile in hopes that my beauty samples would fit more of what I wanted. I’m so happy I did that because I didn’t realize HOW much I missed it. I guess the saying is true, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

I received my October Birchbox about a week ago and I’m so excited about every product in it. They are all different and are all something I will use. . .or have used already.

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Blowout Spray

I’m excited to try this product. I love any hair product that will help dry my hair faster while it protects my hair from the heat.


Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream

I tried this product last Friday morning before going to breakfast, I didn’t notice much of a difference but it was also 6:30am on my day off. I’ll give it a fair shot over the weekend when I travel.


Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara

I haven’t tried the masacara yet because I’m kind of picky when it comes to mascara. I’ve used high end mascara that bleeds above my eyes which is annoying and embarassing at the same time. I’ve also used drugstore makeup that works perfectly and don’t leave tiger stripes on my face. I’ll give it a try over the weekend to see how it works for me.


  Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

As much as it pains me to say this, but this dry shampoo is a GAME CHANGER!! I didn’t want to love it because it is ridiculously expensive. Last week I forgot to set my alarm so I had to use dry shampoo to make me look presentable and it was love from first spray. This dry shampoo sprays out in such a fine mist that it doesn’t leave any of that sticky residue that other dry shampoos do and it gave my hair some volume. I might have to save this one for emergency situations so I don’t blow through it too quickly.


Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

I really didn’t think this product would work on a pretty deep wrinkle I have in between my eyebrows, #ThisIs32 but after one use I noticed a difference. The wrinkle wasn’t as deep or pronounced. After a week, I can notice a difference. I’m for sure going to buy the full size product to help me get bridal ready.


What is your favorite item from your Birchbox???

Thanks for stopping by!

Xo, Heather
