What’s in the November Birchbox

By  | 

Mine arrived earlier this week, so not sure why I’m only getting around to writing about it now. It was actually a really good box, but perhaps my Dead Sea experience is a tough act to follow.

First up was a sweet little pot of Ayres’ fragrant midnight tango body butter.  Thick without being greasy, and perfect size for travel, although it’s scent is strong enough you might not want to apply in your seat. More intriguing is the Eyeko Back magic mascara tube which has a normal brush despite its unusual packaging. Fortunately it’s water proof so I can afford to try it on my next trip. (Tip: Avoid non waterproof mascaras on long flights to avoid the risk of waking up to find you have public racoon eyes.)

Next was a small container of WEI golden root purifying mud mask. I’ll be interested to see how it compares to the medium quality mud I brought back from the Dead Sea. There was also a tube of Folle de Joie eau de parfum, which had a pleasant smell, but still wasn’t for me.

Last was a packet of WEI pomegrante buffing beads. You add them to your daily cleanser to brighten and declog skin.

And this month’s bonus was a far-too-small (since I liked them) package of Fatty Sundays Chocolate Covered Pretzel. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate themed snacks, but the addition of toasted coconut, mint, and toffee crunch had these gone within 2 minutes of opening the box. Yum!

    I got the Folle de Joie eau de parfum last month and LOVE it, so if you need someone to take it off your hands I will gladly do it 🙂

    Except for the Eyeko mascara, I had a completely different box. I got a derma e anti-aging for sensitive skin trial pack, Whish shaving cream (not sure I’ll use this), and my favorite – a Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer creme compact! My extra was 3 Mighty Leaf tea packets. I wasn’t very excited about last month but this month Birchbox was good!
