October 2016 Birchbox Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the October 2106 Birchbox (this is my Birchbox referral code) today.


I am very happy with the October Birchbox selection this month. This box was worth it just for the GlamGlow! I also love the colorful box design.


Here’s what I got this month…


GlamGlow POWERMUD Dualcleanse Treatment – I am a fanatic about the entire GlamGlow line so anytime I get a sample I am thrilled because GlamGlow is pricey. As soon as I got my October Birchbox I tried out the POWERMUD and I loved it. It made my face noticeably smoother and brighter. I seriously need a GlamGlow budget!  Full-Sized Price: $69.


Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo – This is a dry shampoo from Oribe. It looks interesting and I’m curious about trying it. Full-Sized Price: $44.


Avene Hydrance Optimate Hydrating Cream RICH – Birchbox had the Avene Spring Water in the September Box and I should try these products in the same week. This is a rich hydrating creme. Full-Sized Price: $32.


This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – Tip here! Open this bottle VERY carefully. I pulled on the cap and flung almost the entire product across the room. Not my entire living room smells like lavender and chamomile which is nice but a bit strong. Full-Sized Price: $29


MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick in Magnolia – This has got to be the cutest lipstick I have ever seen. While I have never heard of this brand I’ll certainly use this one. Full-Sized Price: $25

Overall I give the October Birchbox a 9.5 out of 10. I feel like this was an awesome box with the GlamGlow, MAKE Lipstick sample and Avene.
