Birchbox October 2013


I can’t believe another month has gone by. It seems like I just did the post about my September Birchbox. In terms of sizing, Birchbox is definitely improving; I did not get a single foil packet this month!

Here is what I received in my October box:


L to R:

theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen

Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo

Beauty Protector Protect & Condition

Evologie Stay Clear Cream

Chapstick Hydration Lock

The only product I have tried so far from the box was the Chapstick, which I didn’t like. I have always hated Chapstick, but I had not tried it in years, so I was hoping maybe they changed the formula. I put this on right before I did my makeup this morning, but my lips felt extremely dry after about ten minutes; the packaging claims to hydrate your lips for eight hours.

Overall, I think this is a decent box, but I wish there was a better product besides Chapstick in there. I am the most excited by Stainiac from theBalm – I have always wanted to try this. Stainiac is a cheek stain, but it is a bit gel-like and comes in the same packaging as a lipgloss. I am also really excited by the shampoo and conditioner because Beauty Protector is one of my favorite haircare brands.

Have you tried any of these products before? What did you get in your Birchbox?
