So when I opened my birchbox this month I had no idea what would be in it…usually it comes a little later, so I spoil it and look up what other people got. This time it came really early though so it was a total surprise. Here is what I ended up getting:[amazon_link id=”B0032GU1EE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ][/amazon_link] Laura Gellar Spackle Under Make-up Primer in Bronze I was both excited and a little worried to receive this primer. I love the Laura Gellar brand, but I usually stay clear of anything with the word “bronze” in it. While my skin is already tan, I don’t want it to get tanner! However, the tint of this is very subtle and blends into my skin really well.

I’ll be putting this in my travel bag for the next time I travel and need a little cleanser to take with me.

I thought it was going to be some kind of face oil, which would have been disappointing…but turns out its a hair oil. I have only used this once but its really nice, and it smells great!
BeFine Lip Serum This reminded me a bit of the jouer lip serum from last month’s box except not as thick…but much much larger! (does anyone know if this is full size?) I do really like this…it feels really smooth on my lips and gives them a good amount of shine.[amazon_link id=”B000W4JESS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ][/amazon_link] EXTRA: The Laundress Delicate Wash Kind of disappointed that the extra is laundry detergent, but considering that September and August’s “extras” were essentially pieces of string with different degrees of elasticity, I think I’ll take it! I just bought a nice cashmere sweater from Express that I need to hand wash, so I’ll be using this.
Overall, I think its a better box that last month’s, although I’m not super impressed with the products I got since I won’t really be using the cleanser. I’ll have better reviews coming up later this week once I’ve tried the products a bit more.
What did you guys get in your October boxes?
The lip serum sounds great!
@PopBlush Yep I’m really liking it! And its in a pretty large tube too which is great!
I won’t receive my box until Tuesday or Wednesday. I’m hoping this month won’t be a complete let down again.
@Danielle Hoping you get a good box! Yea I agree about last month’s box…it was definitely a letdown.
