October Birchbox

This month was the "goop" box, whatever that means. I was glad to be getting another bottle of nail polish to check out. The polish has been the only redeeming factor in the last couple of boxes. I am sorely tempted to cancel my birchbox in favor of a Julep Maven subscription...but I love getting random make-up samples.

The Contents:

Essie in Lady Like (swatches upcoming)
Jouer Lip Enhancer
Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Eye
Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum
Luna bar in Lemon Zest

The lip enhancer tasted awful and artificial. The texture was really off-putting as well. I'll keep it as a back-up (unless someone wants it? Seriously, I will gladly trade anything for it) but I will certainly not be buying the full sized product. I haven't tried the eye cream. I'm a little skittish about eye stuff because I am super prone to millia, and I have finally found an eye cream that doesn't cause them. I might try it eventually...we'll see. I am in LOVE with the Supergoop! so far. I've been wanting to try it, but I didn't want to buy it and hate it like I do with so many sunscreens. It has very little scent. No perfumy shit OR tell-tale sunscreen smell. That makes me happy. It soaks into the skin wonderfully, and even five hours later, my face isn't shiny and gross. I also really liked the Luna bar. But it wasn't new to me at all. I used to buy those when I was knocked up for snacks. I had gestational diabetes the last time, and it was a fairly low carb snack that satisfied my insatiable sweet tooth. I forgot how much I liked them, I will definitely pick up a box next time I am out.

Next post will be swatches of the polish...which will also be available for swapsies come november. Not a good color for me AT ALL.


  1. Dude, I didn't even get nail polish with mine this time. I haven't had a chance to try any of the stuff except for the Luna bar. I always eat Birchbox goodies right out of the box, lol :-)

    1. I really like luna bars, especially the lemon zezt flavor. But seriously...I am not thrilled with my last couple of boxes.

  2. Goop is a Gwyneth Paltrow thing...I hate that I know that.

  3. I wish I had gotten an essie polish, love essie. Luna bars are delish and the gloss is good but other than least there was no parfume! I made a video on mine.
