My November Birchbox ~ What I Got

Hiya lovelies!  I got my Birchbox in yesterday and couldn't wait to share it with you.  I love seeing what everyone else gets in their boxes and usually it's totally different than mine.  So, here's mine:

 I must say after seeing everyone else's box, I thought mine would be rad.  I'm a little disappointed though.
Apparently Guerlain revamped its classic Shalimar scent.  It smells slightly better than the original, which smells like an 80 year old woman. {I used to work in fragrances at Burdines (now Macy's), and seriously only the elderly bought Shalimar.}  So this just smells like a 65 year old.  Definitely not for me.
This month's bonus treat was two coasters, similar to those you'd find at a bar, just without a beer logo on it.  Cute though.
I love lotion and I haven't tried the Kimono Rose scent yet, but the eucalyptus scent reminds me of men's soap.  It is a lovely, rich lotion though.
After falling in love with Anastasia's mascara, I was stoked to try the lip gloss.  It's really shiny, and a lovely color.  It's pretty thick and sticky though.  I like the flexible spatula applicator the best though.
Finally the Keratase hair oil.  This can be used in a variety of ways according to the packaging.  The scent is amazing and it really leaves my hair so soft.  And I have super dry hair, so that says alot.  The full size is a little pricy at $54.  We'll see how I feel about it after I keep using it :)

So, now I want to hear from you.  Did you receive any of these products in your Birchbox?  What did you think of them?


  1. I need to sign up for this! I keep saying I need to them forgetting :( I'll have to put this on my holiday wish list!

  3. Oh man...you think your box was dissapointing..wait till you see mine! I thought I got some good stuff but now that I've seen some boxes, I think otherwise. I got the Kerastase Elixir, and it is awesome! I think we may have similar hair texture, currently I use Redken Smoothdown after I straighten my hair to rid of flyaways. I actually like this better.

  4. My box was totally different, but I really liked it. I got some scrub with gold in it that kinda sucks, but I like the rest. I had some detangler, nail polish, eye makeup remover, chocolate, and a baublebar bracelet as a prize for referring people or something like that. I don't know, but it's cute!

  5. everything looks great! I love kerastase.

  6. LOL. We had the same reaction to the Shalimar and the Thymes eucalyptus body lotion. I also wasn't crazy about the Kimono Rose lotion either.

  7. i've heard a lot about Anastasia of Beverly Hills--looks like a great birchbox!

  8. Oooh, you got some great stuff!

  9. These boxes can be so hot and cold. I guess we have to take some bad with the good, right?

  10. Kerastase products are always great! They always work..

    All the best, ~Angel

  11. NO I don't seem to be on the birchbox mailing, but I have to say Shalimar always reminds me of Paris because I used to wear it when I lived there. I'm glad they came out with it again because I was looking for it and couldn't find it.

  12. Oh wow you got yours late! I was disappointed by the size of the lip gloss (it's the smallest thing in the world!) but I like most of your samples except the coasters is pretty lame :/

  13. How long have you been using Birchbox? I've thought about subscribing or w/e, but I'm not sure..

    By the way, I'm giving away a $50 Sephora gift card on my blog http://www.l0velindsey.com!
