November Birchbox: Anastasia, Kerastase

This month I received my first Birchbox! In case you didn't know, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service in which you get 4-5 deluxe samples for $10 a month. Once you try the sample you can buy the full product directly from the Birchbox website. I first saw this on youtube and thought it was a great way to try new products without having to buy them.  I love to explore new brands and try different things so I had to sign up.

What's in my November Birchbox
1. Befine Night Cream
Full Size - 1.7 fl oz $30
I've never used a night cream before and hadn't heard of this brand prior to trying it so this was completely new to me. I really like it a lot! My skin felt very soft and smooth when I woke up. I'm tempted to buy the full size.

2. Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara
Full Size - 8 ml  $22
This mascara advertises that it "will add full volume thickness and uplifting curl". I had a chance to try this out today. I think it does exactly what it claims. I like it but I don't think I want to spend $22 on it.

3. Kerastase Elixir Ultime
Full Size - 125 ml  $54
This conditioning oil is really nice. It has a thin consistency and spreads out onto your hair evenly. I haven't used it enough to tell if it makes a big difference but $54 is too much for me to spend on a hair product.

4. Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste
Full Size - 4.2 oz  $21
I used this once already. I'll have to keep using it to see if it does make a difference but so far I don't have plans to buy it.

5. Alex and Isabelle Classic Hair Ties
Set of 6  $12
This is such a cute and unique idea. When I first saw it in my box I wasn't sure what it was for but then read that it was an elastic for your hair. It actually looks really pretty and feels gentle on my hair. I'd be interested in getting more.

So I can't say I'm disappointed with anything I recieved. I've read that the contents can vary from one Birchbox to another so I'm excited to see what other people received. I will be reviewing my Birchbox every month here so watch for my next one in December!
