October Birchbox Review

I know I am super late in posting about my October Birchbox and for that I am so sorry.  Im not sure where the time goes and my boys have decided that 4:30/5AM is an acceptable time to start that day.

The theme for October's Birchbox was "Beauty Buzz" and was all about the products they love.  From award winners to celeb favorites.  Although I did love 2 of the items I received this was not my favorite month.

DDF® Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Moisturizer Serum - This serum is amazing!  I have a friend that recently signed up for Birchbox on my recommendation and received this in her first box. She immediately purchased it.  The serum is very lightweight and feels satiny on your skin.  It is great under make up and I actually have seen an improvement to my skin.  This item is a little pricey but as I get older and the wrinkles have started I don't feel guilty purchasing something that makes my skin look better and most of all makes me feel good.

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue - I was not a big fan of this fragrance.  I do not reach for an orange/citrus scent when wearing perfume.  It was a nice smell just wouldn't be my go to.

theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac - This multi purpose stain was a great addition this month.  I love a lip and cheek stain and this one was my favorite so far.  The color gives a very natural, rosy, just ran a mile tint on the cheeks.  I do like it better on my cheeks than my lips.  It is a very subtle lip color which is pretty but I was hoping for something a little bolder.

SARAHPOTEMPA The HALF-UP™ -  (Not shown)  This is an item that is used to make a bun. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to use this product before I gave it to my sister.  She needed to wear her hair up for an occasion and thought it would be worth a try.

ChapStick® Hydration Lock - This addition to my Birchbox was something they like to call a "Birchbox Find." It is an item they find and believe to be so great everyone needs to own it.  I was not all that excited about seeing the Chapstick since I basically already have a lifetime supply but I will say this is great.  It glides on your lips and does not feel like you are wearing anything.  Definitely worth picking up as we are heading into chapped lip season.
