Inside Birchbox | November


Once again, this month I chose a curated Birchbox. If you don't know, since Birchbox revamped their subscription service, you now have a monthly choice of a few curated boxes, a substitution wherein you get your $15 in point form to spend on the site, or now you can swap your entire box for a full-size product of their choosing (this month was a Benefit highlighter). But I'm predictable and chose the skincare focused box for November. I adore getting skincare samples as they tend to last me at least a month, if not longer, so it gives my skin enough time to get used to a new routine and I feel like it's long enough for me to review the product. Without future ado, let's talk about the goodies I got this month.

Brand: Georgette Klinger
Product: Coconut Cleansing Milk
Full-sized details: $22
Sample size received: 15ml

I've never tried a cleansing milk before so this is an exciting product to me. The smell is very oat-milk inspired, which though sweet, is very addicting. I've never heard of the brand before, but after a look at their website, they seem very natural inspired which I love. 

Brand: H20+ Beauty
Product: Hydration Sensitive Milk Serum
Full-sized details: $54
Sample size received: 5ml
Another milky product! I have heard of this brand before but haven't yet tried anything by them. Upon first use, my skin felt so silky smooth that I found it hard to not continuously rub my cheek. The packaging however doesn't appeal to me.

Brand: Philosophy
Product: renewed hope in a jar water cream hyaluronic glow moisterizer
Full-sized details: $39
Sample size received: 7m
Yup, that is actually the name of the product on my Birchbox handy-dancy information card. Philosophy is such a popular brand in the blogosphere, I've tried a few products from them before and always really enjoy them. So this is bound to be a hit for my skin.

Brand: Dr. Jart+
Product: Ceramidin Cream
Full-sized details: $48
Sample size received: 5ml
This moisturiser has been in so many monthly boxes that it's practically a regular in my routine. I do enjoy the results from it, it keeps my skin from getting dry and I haven't had any negative results from it. However, the smell isn't very pleasant and my skin doesn't automatically feel plumped after application. So, meh.

Brand: Purlisse
Product: Daily Lip Nourisher
Full-sized details: $16
Sample size received: 4.5ml
My lips are forever dry. I can drink 10 glasses of water a day and my lips will still be dry. I wasn't sure about this product as I detest the taste of mango, however instead it tastes (not that i was licking it off........) and smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange. Not sure why, but okay. It's definitely nourishing and not at all sticky. So far, so good!

Brand: Derma E
Product: Hydrating Eye Cream with Hyaluronic Acid
Full-sized details: $29.50
Sample size received: Full-size
Getting a full sized product is always exciting, especially when it retails for a staggering $29.50 which is practically double the price of your box. As mentioned in a previous 'Inside Birchbox' I haven't yet found my holy grail eye-cream. Will this be the one? Only time will tell. I will definitely do a dedicated review after the suggested 12 weeks of use.

So, there we have it. Would you of chosen the curated skincare box? Let me know!
