Wednesday Reveal – October Birchbox

This is actually my final Birchbox, I only had two months left of a full year of this service but it didn’t seem worth it. I didn’t love this subscription, yes it is only $10/month but the boxes always felt thrown together with no cohesiveness. Also, this month I think I received the curated box which I didn’t choose…? Anyway, here is what I received in my final Behind the Scenes box:

Matrix Biolage R.A.W Uplift Shampoo & Condition – I like the aesthetic of this line from Biolage, they look like juice drinks. This is a volumizing and body-boosting duo formulated with black sesame and grapefruit. I have used these a few times now, they smell nice and herbal but I was surprised of how long the fragrance lasted over the course of the day, I don’t like my hair care products to be so perfumed. I cannot speak to the volume but my hair did feel nice.

Comfort Zone Hydramemory Cream Gel – This claims to be a lightweight, deeply hydrating moisturizer that is formulated with hyaluronic acid and moringa oil.

Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner – Yay, another black eyeliner that I am never going to use. I don’t know it is about liquid black liners that look so bizarre on me, I love a good kohl or creme liner but not liquid. It closes off my eyes and I just don’t like them, this will be a gift-away.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentration – I already like and use this product, I think this was a great inclusion in the box. This will be a gift-away since I already own the full-size. This is a cell boosting serum that imparts overnight radiance, it really does – I love this stuff.

That’s it for my last box, not a grande finale per say but not the worst box that I have received. I am now on the hunt for a new one to try, I still have not found a paper product one that I am terribly interested in but that would be ideal.

Thanks for stopping by ❤

  1. They say Ipsy is better, but I don’t know yet. I’m not sold on Ipsy. I’ve tried it once for a year and I felt like all I got was Indy products and no high end ones.

    • Me neither, they do a lot of indie brands that nobody has ever heard of. It would be fun to get well-known indie brands. I agree, the only ‘high-end’ brand that comes to mind is tarte and I have had a few repeats of their products…

  2. When I had Birchbox about a year ago or more I didn’t like it as much, I wasn’t super into the brands I guess? I’m still on the fence about Ipsy, every once in a while I will get some pretty cool products that I will actually use… I’m debating on whether I should keep it for a few more months or subscribe to another one, like Boxycharm, the November box looks faaaabb!

    • Agreed, I don’t mind trying new brands but some of it isn’t even available to purchase in the US so what if I really like something? Ipsy is OK, still a lot of no-name indie brands which is fine but I wish they would collaborate with some of the bigger ones. Boxycharm is pretty great, lots of full-size stuff. I am thinking of dropping Ipsy at the year mark, we’ll see!

      • YES, I wish Ipsy would do that! I often get products of brands I’ve never heard of, some are okay, but more often than not, I’m not entirely into them. OMG I’m thinking of dropping Ipsy after one year too! Hahaha!

      • Yea, I get so much that I’ll try and toss – it seems wasteful even though they are just samples. Haha! Glad I’m not the only one!!
