After last month's confusion with if I should keep getting Birchbox, I was pleasantly surprised to be extremely excited and anxious about getting October's box. It could have something to do with the fact that I haven't been shopping too much and that I peeked (as always) at what was inside my box.

Oh it's a good one-- probably one of my favorite Birchboxes ever. Not to mention that it was a gorgeous pink box with a beautiful design that supported Breast Cancer Awareness!

All of the products I got in this box are ones that I've been meaning to try and so far, they're all awesome!

//Avene Thermal Spring Water: Spray mists are my addiction and obsession. I think they are a little gimicky but I can't help it! Every time I spray one on my face I feel like a new person. This Avene Thermal Spring Water is one of the better known mists and one that I have wanted to try for a while but never got a chance. I definitely notice a different in how this one feels compared to others like my holy grail Rosewater Spray from Mario Badescu; I wouldn't say its better because I love the Rosewater Spray, but this definitely feels just as good. I may buy a full size once this sample runs out.

Sample size: 5/5
Full size: $12.50-18

//Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Highlighter: I will never ever say no to another highlighter. I love these little sample sizes of liquid illuminators and I was really happy to try one from a Korean beauty brand. I've heard only good things about this highlighter and I can't wait to try it out. This would be wonderful to mix into foundation for a luminous finish!

Sample size: 3/5
Full size: $33

//Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo: I've gotten this dry shampoo in an Ipsy box (I think) and I really liked it. It got the job done and didn't leave behind a bad residue. It's a little on the expensive side in my opinion, I would never spend $20 on a dry shampoo so it's nice to have the sample.

Sample size: 5/5
Full Size: $20

//Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara: All Birchbox subscribers got a mascara sample in their box this month as their sample choice and I chose this bad boy. This is a brand new mascara to Stila's line and I've never tried any of Stila's products so I wanted to jump on the band wagon. Oh boy is this my new favorite mascara. It's very similar to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and gives the same effect. I only used it once but I know this will be used up quickly. It has a very large brush that leaves your lashes luscious, long, and voluminous. Your lashes will look dramatic yet very soft and fluttery. It's perfect!

Sample size: 4/5
Full size: $23

//Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream: I'm always in need of new skincare and Dr. Jart is one of my favorite brands that I've discovered through Birchbox. This cream is supposed to calm irritated skin and deeply hydrate, which I'm always in need of in the winter months. I can't wait to use this, I'm sure it will not disappoint.

Sample size: 2/5
Full size: $48
