BirchBox for November 2013

So, I got the BirchBox for November 2013 and I am still not impressed with the subscription.  I said I would give it a few months and I have received 2 months already.  I have now cancelled this subscription and I am looking into another one.  But here is the November BirchBox.  

Here is the box and the inside...

BeeKind Body Lotion is the first thing I pulled out of the blue envelope.  I opened it and turned the to pour some in my hand and I got way too much due to it is very thin.  The full size is 8oz at $15, I received a sample size of 30 ml.  It states on the bottle "The honey bee population is in crisis.  A portion of the proceeds of this product supports honey bee and sustainable pollination research".  I have to say I like when a company is supporting a good cause.

The other item in the blue envelope is the Wei Pomegranate Buffing Beads - full size 20 0.5 packets at $20.  I received 2 packets.  the directions say for me to mix these beads in with a quarter size amount of my cleanser, then use on my face.  I have never seen this type of item before so this will be interesting.  I will be sure to write a review on this item.  

The next item I got was the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil - Full size $18.  I received a full size of this one. I have not used a highlighter before, I am just getting into using all the make-up items, form highlighters to bronzers, so this will definitely get used.  =}

The Perfume that was in this box is Joie Folle De Joie Eau De Parfum - Full size $98. I got a sample size of 0.6 fl oz.  I am not really sure yet what I think.  I like Fruity Musky smells, Like the Lavanila that I have shown in my LBB hauls.  This is a light umm  I want to say floral scent.  I think I will have to wear it at least once then make my mind up.  I know perfumes will smell different on everyone depending on your own body oils.  So we will see...

It has a stray top instead of a pop top, I like that
 There is a purple small container in the box as well...

It is a Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask - Full size $42 for 8 containers and a brush.  I got one container of 8ml, I will try this as well.  As I always say I love to try new products and I love beauty products, so I will be trying this.  I have never had a mud mask, I'm sure I will look funny to my boys and my fiance, but ladies do we care as long as we look good.  LOL  =}

The added item to my BirchBox this month is a "Lifestyle Extra"  They added:

Mighty Leaf Tea Pouches - Full Size $9.95 for 15 pouches.  I received 3 different flavor pouches.  Organic African Nectar, Vanilla Bean and Green Tea Tropical.  I like flavored treas, so I am sure I will enjoy theses.  

And they also slide there card with the information on it...

I have enjoyed the items I have received, but I still wasn't impressed with BirchBox.  So, I have cancelled the subscription and I am looking to open a different one in it's place.

Now on to the next one...

Bye for now Y'all  <3

You have to enjoy Birchbox for what it is! Don't forget that you get the bonus points & lots of coupons and not stress that you didn't get great samples (i never do!).

I went ahead and I reordered the box, I also used my points too. So, I will be receiving Decembers box with a few add-ons. I wanted to give it one more try after reading a few other reviews. Thank you for your comment, they are always welcomed.

Have you tried Ipsy yet? It's my second favorite beauty box. Here's my referral link if you're interested in checking out:
My most favorite is Ophelia's Apothecary. You can find it on FB here:
She makes all of her own products, and I've loved every single one! Should you decide to try it, let her know I sent you please :)
