Spoiler Alert-October Birchbox

Oh hiiii!!

My favorite time of the month is here! 
It's Birchbox time!

So in this month's box, I received a liquid pearl illuminator from Benefit, shampoo and conditioner from Bain de Terre, a face mask from Karuna and a new product from Chapstick.

Ok first, Girl Meets Pearl by Benefit in Golden Pink. I freakin LOVE this product! I have only been using this a few days but I am already madly in love with this. This is a gorgeous highlighter that creates the perfect glow, plus we all know that I think pink and gold are a marriage made in makeup heaven.

Next, Bain de Terre Macadamia Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner. I have not yet tried these but I am looking forward to it. I have used Bain de Terre products before and have liked them a lot so I have high hopes for these. I do have to travel in about a month so I may wait and take these with me to use. I will let you know how in my update post if I waited and if I loved them. 

Next up, a Clarifying Treatment Mask from Karuna. 

According to the package:

Shiso, a Japanese Green Leaf, plus Ginger work to keep your skin clear and healthy, while Honey soothes and provides oil-free hydration. 

All Karuna masks contain a custom-blended beauty boost. Plant extracts, peptides, and anti-oxidants bring care and compassion to all skin types with a feeling of hydration, nourishment and renewal. 

I will be using this tomorrow night. Honey has made my skin break out in the past so I am a little nervous, however this contains Salicylic Acid so hopefully it will counteract any clogging. This has lots of good stuff in it but then the very last ingredient is fragrance. Ugh. Boooooo. 

Lastly, a new product from Chapstick.

According to the packaging:

ChapStick Hydrarion Lock provides advanced moisturization to revitalize and visibly improve the appearance of your lips. It provides 8 hour moisture, contains antioxidant CoQ10, contains hyaluronic filling spheres, gives lips a fuller and smoother appearance, has a light, silky texture for instant smoothness and enhanced lip feel.

This product does contain petroleum and parabans so it may be a pass for me. 

I give this box a solid 7 (I subtracted a point for the chapstick). 
These are all new products for me and I am excited to try all of them (except the ChapStick), 
plus I'm already in love with the Benefit product!

Until next time kitty cats!
