November "Giving" Birchbox

November “Giving” Birchbox

November’s “Giving” Birchbox arrived 2 weeks ago but it’s taken me awhile to get it up what with being sick and the holiday. Here you go though! Check out these goodies. November’s theme was “Giving”. Birchbox partnered up with (RED) to raise money and awareness for AIDS.

This month I got:

amika Nourishing Mask – This is a paraben-free hair treatment to condition and repair. The 250 ml size retails for $28 so this 20 ml sample is worth about $2.25. I’m always looking for good conditioning hair treatments so I’m excited to give this one a try.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Heartthrob – This is a lip stain that’s supposed to be long lasting with lots of moisture. I’ve always wanted to try Cynthia Rowley’s cosmetics and this is a great color for me so I can’t wait to try it out. The full size is $20 for 0.17 oz so this 0.079 oz sample is worth about $9.30.

Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion – This lotion smells lovely. It’s a little thinner than I generally like in a body lotion (I like really thick lotions) but it is nice and moisturizing and the travel size is perfect for my purse! The full size is 8 oz and  retails for $15 s o this 1.35 oz sample is worth about $2.53.

Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask – This was my sample choice for the month. It’s full of antioxidants and is suppose to firm and brighten your skin. I’m really excited to give this one a try! The full size is $58 for 6 0.33 oz tubes (1.98 oz total) so this 0.33 oz tube is worth about $9.67.

theBalm cosmetics Cindy-Lou Manizer – This is a pretty pinky peach shimmery highlighter powder. It’s nice and smooth and a really pretty color, though it’s a bit dark to highlight on my super pale skin. It will add a nice dimension over a blush for me though! This sells for $24 for the 0.3 oz full size so the 0.02 oz sample is worth about $1.60.

Dang Coconut Chips – These were a bonus item in the box that I believe all subscribers got. They were sooooo good! They’re $18 for a 6 pack so this pack was worth $3

Here are swatches of the two makeup items.

This whole box is worth roughly $28.35 which is a good value for the $10 cost, especially since I’ll actually use all of these items. I’m really happy with the box this month! I think it’s one of my favorites so far.
