Oh, Birchbox! How I have a love/hate relationship with you! This is why I keep this subscription, because just as you are getting bored with it, BAM! you end up getting something really great the next month. Since they have been doing these pick your sample choices, I have gotten some really awesome samples two months in a row! Last month it was the Liz Earle Hot Cleansing Cloth Kit, and this month is the full size Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick.
I’m overall pleased with all of my Birchbox samples this month, as I don’t think there’s one item that will go unused.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
I’m not a huge fan of dry shampoos overall, but I do like the option to sample various brands so I can eventually find one that works for me. Amika Perk Up smells fantastic when sprayed on the hair, and the can is beyond cute! This is a great sample to add to your purse or travel kit. It also doesn’t seem to leave tons of powdery white residue that some brands of dry shampoo leave behind. I haven’t had an opportunity to see if it works to absorb oil, but the scent alone makes it a great hair refresher.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Blackhead Extraction Mask
This is a spot mask that you put over troubled areas. I really love all of the Dr. Brandt products that I have sampled, and have no doubt this mask will be great too. I am always tempted to purchase the full size of Dr. Brandt’s products.
Lord & Berry Paillettes Glitter Eye Pencil in Black
Another eye pencil. It is black with silver glitter in it. I swatched it on my hand and it smudged easily. Not a fan.
Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick-Melon
Mally Beauty always has great, high quality products. This is not a deluxe sample, this is a full size product worth $20! I was blown away that this was included in my box. I have tried her Liquid Lipsticks before and they are awesome. Also, just look up Mally Rancal herself, she is all light and positivity. I have a few of the product from the Mally line and they have all been really great.
Skin and Co Sicilian Light Serum
I have not tried this sample yet, but on the bottle it says: “Sicilian Light Serum has a triple action formula that brightens, softens and tightens the skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” This serum is to be used under your foundation twice a day.
October’s Birchbox was really great, and I am pleased with my Mally sample choice this month.
