October Birchbox

I love the beginning of the months now because it means Birchbox time! Seriously, this is the best thing I've ever invested in because it opens my eyes (and wallet) to new beauty products. It's also so much fun to get a little gift to start the month off right.

I haven't been able to hold out until my box arrived to check out what was inside so I've been peeking online before it actually gets to my mailbox. 

I was super excited when I saw what was in this month's box!


1. Ouidad Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel: 

I have this product already because I got it free as one of my Sephora samples when I ordered online a while ago. I never used it because I always forget I have it but now that I have another sample, I might have to use it. I'm assuming it would work well with my hair because I have such frizzy hair and the humidity is it's mortal enemy. 



This stuff smells SO good. It's such an odd scent, something I've never smelt before but it's fun. It's hard to describe in words but it is definitely a perfume I'd wear and purchase.



I've been hearing more and more about highlighters for your face and eyes but I just never got around to purchasing one. The idea also confused me a little bit--what are you supposed to use it for?
That's why I was ecstatic when I saw that I got one in my box this month. This highlighter is a shimmery beige/neutral color and I've been putting it around my eyes and near my brow bone for the
past few days and I see a difference; my face just looks a little brighter and I look more awake. I love it!



Okay so I'm obsessed with lip balms and I've been meaning to find a new one for the winter months, even though I do have my favorites. This is PERFECT. It's a lip butter so it feels like a typical lip balm in the container but once you put it on your lips, it's a little thicker than usual and it makes all the difference. It has a wonderful fruity smell but it's not overpowering and you don't have to keep reapplying it. I really love this product. It was definitely my favorite.



This month's Birchbox bonus was three tea bags, a green tea, a black tea, and a nectar tea. I haven't tried any of them yet but I am a tea junkie so I'm excited to heat one of these bad boys up and see how they are.
