November Birchbox

       My November Birchbox arrived last week but I am a bit behind so sorry for the delay in posting. If you signed up for Birchbox using my affiliate link then THANK YOU!!! If you are wondering what a Birchbox is you can check out my post from last month here or you can check out the Birchbox website .
              Here is everything I got. The coasters are not pictured because I used them and lost them already! Thank you kids!!!

BORGHESE Fango Active Mud Face & Body

 Tuscany’s soothing green mud is famous for its deep cleaning powers. It rids skin of impurities, while a dose of avocado and sweet almond oils restore hydration and softness. Best of all, it’s moist, not sticky, and it doesn’t dry out your skin.
17.6 oz for $64
I really liked this mud mask. It has a slight tingling sensation and looked really scary on. It made my face
feel smooth and moisturized afterward. Sadly it is way out of my price range but I probably would
purchase it if I had enough Birchbox points to get a nice discount.

LaROCCA Champagne and  Shimmer Supreme Creme 

 Talk about the crème de le crème — this rich body butter is made with 24-karat colloidal gold to help stimulate cell renewal. Precious metals aside, it softens our skin with a blend of plant oils and the lush, mousse-like texture is a dream.

How it Works

Mega moisturizers like shea, murumuru, and olive butters work to provide long-lasting hydration. Jojoba and cranberry extracts deliver an antioxidant boost, and flecks of golden shimmer give skin a subtle glow.
6.76 oz for $35
           I actually did not try this product. Most of my friends who got this in their box said it was sticky and greasy which I hate. I just put this away to use for the gift bags.

Zoya Gems & Jewels Collection

 $8.00 for a 0.50 fl bottle
              I hate this color. It figures they would send the color I dislike. I also have like 4 bottles of the same color polish made by different brands that I never wear and loathe so this one also went to the gift bags. I have heard good things about Zoya polish and I most likely will order some other colors to try out.

I got this awesome bracelet in my box as a prize for referring friends.
It is really cute. I wore it once already with another beaded bracelet. 
I can't seem to find this on the site though.

Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee Cologne Absolue 

Unlike most vanilla scents, this highly concentrated blend of jasmine, vanilla, and lime is fresh, not sweet. Happily, the long-lasting fragrance lasts all day — we’re smitten and you will be too.  Romantic and sumptuous, this scent is a worthy addition to any fragrance collection. Top notes of bright lime and coriander mingle with middle notes of jasmine and oak moss. Madagascar vanilla and amber notes anchor the scent.

200 ml for $170.00

                       I really like this perfume. I think it smelled good. Some of my friends thought it smelled manly but it was nice to me. It is a bit expensive but if I had enough Birchbox points I would likely buy it.

  1. Birchbox, huh? that is a great idea... verrrry tempting. i will have to keep that one in mind for sure.

  2. I like Borghese, but they are definitely overpriced. The good news is that if you search around a lot of times you can find their stuff deeply discounted. I'm wondering if you might be interested in this: http://www.amazon.com/BORGHESE-Fango-Fabulous-Gift-Set/dp/B005FJPRLI

    Now of course these are only 1 oz each (about the size of your average foundation) which should be enough for 3-4 masks each, and you can try 4 different types to see which you like the best. Birchbox is giving you the price for the giganto jar, this stuff comes in several sizes, so shop around and you'll find better deals!

  3. By the way, I'm enjoying your site so much that I'm bopping around randomly clicking links to different posts in your archives. lol
