Birchbox # 3 || November

You know what is a bummer? When there is a national holiday and the post office is closed on the day you think your Birchbox is going to arrive. ha! I decided I am going to stop tracking my subscription boxes just so I stop getting let down when I come from from work and don't see it sitting on the table.
So, my November BirchBox finally arrived (on the same day as my Ipsy - that is worthy of a different post). This time I did not immediately rip into the box, I actually went and started to make dinner and then eventually got to opening the box.
This months theme was More Good aka getting ready for holiday season (deep breath, are the holidays already here?!?). This months box contained the following:

Chella - Highlighter Pencil, $18.00
This little highlighter has actually been pretty useful for lighting up the smokey eye - eye shadow that I like to do. I haven't used it for the suggested purposes of blending into brow bones, cheekbones and along lip yet…
Color Club - Cocktail Hour Collection, $8.00
Oddly enough, my Ispy came with the exact same color from a different brand. I really like this color - it is nice and subtle - these days I am into the neutral colored nail polishes rather than the loud/bright ones. What is this world coming to?!?! ha!
Ghiradelli Chocolate Bar - Mint Chocolate Flavor, $N/A
This was an add into the box this month. Let's just say I was STOKED to see some chocolate in there - I love Ghiradelli, I am a sucker for buying the truffles that are merchandised at checkout lines in the store…honestly, who doesn't do that though?
Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy Noir, $90 for 3.4 oz. 
Not a huge Juicy fan. It reminds me of two things: 1 being 16 year old girls and the other being the Glendale Galleria. Samples like this come in really handy when it comes to keeping a coverup scent in the car (aka, after I go riding and need to mask that). Okay, so I admit I did once own a bottle of Juicy perfume - I was also 18 and a sorority girl.
LA FRESH - Oil Free FAce Cleanser /Scented, $9.99
 I haven't had the chance to use this year. Like all face products I am slightly tentative since it has to do with my face and sensitive skin. There is nothing worse that walking around with a giant something on your face because you switched products - I like to stick to the basics aka Witch Hazel and water. I will admit at I did really enjoy the sample of Egyptian Magic that I received back in my September box.
Tiossan - Body Cream, $38.00
I haven't had a chance to use this yet. It is so darn dry here that my body just sucks up lotion - so I tend to go for more inexpensive stuff (that I can buy in bulk sizes at Target) since I go through so much of it. I absolutely love the packaging of this - and the smell of the cream isn't horrible either. Who knows, maybe I will finally find a cream that I can't live without…

Overall, I am pretty happy with this box - really looking forward to the December box.

Sending Love, Xx
