Birchbox October 2017

October 13, 2017

Hey gorgeous people, I received my first Birchbox yesterday and I kinda had a mixed feeling. Maybe because I had already received Ipsy Glam Bag which is also $10 a month and the products there were so much better. The products for this month's Birchbox are:

The box had an information card listing all the products with brief details and their full-size version prices. 

The first product I tried is Avene Hydrance intense. It has light fragrance, gets absorbed easily into skin and leaves skin very smooth to touch. It did smooth away the dehydration lines I get at the back of my hands after I wash them. So have to try it now on my face. I just wish it was a little more because this sample size won't last 2 application.

I was a little skeptical of the Beauty Protector leave-in conditioner, but it really surprised me. It instantly smooth out my fuzzy baby hairs after the wash. Its paraben- and sulphate- free and also vegan. There is no quantity listed on the bottle so I guessed that its about 1oz. and priced around $3. 

The next is Smashbox pore minimizing primer. I tried it on my inner wrist and it instantly made my skin smooth that my hand was almost gliding. But this is oil controlling so might not work for me as I have dry skin. Its price worked out to be around $9.

The Embryolisse Lait creme concentrate boosts of being a multi-tasker. The tube was sealed and had to be opened. It seemed a little heavy to me. Its paraben-free. It didn't fully absorb in my skin although I have dry skin. Not a favorite.Its value  is around $1.8.

I love this liquid eyeliner. Its by eyeko, super-pigmented, draws a real skinny line and really smooth to glide on. I was on a look-out to buy one and I'm glad it came in the box. I think this is one products I will be using a lot. Its value is $12.6

So that is all in this box. The total value of products comes out to $32.73 which is quite good considering I paid only $5.34 using a 50% off coupon on my first month. And I love the box, its very pretty.

So how was your Birchbox this month? Was it worth it? Mine sure was 😊
