Here is the scoop on my November Birch Box
(Don't know what Birch Box is? Go {HERE} to find out more!)
Masqueology Revitalizing Eye Mask
Rich in rare marine ingredients, this product fight the signs of jetlag and under eye fatigue by reducing puffiness and brightening dark circles. When I first opened these I almost threw them out. There were 2 patches to put under your eyes that were super slimy and hard to even grab and put on. But some how I managed to get them on my face, under my eyes. They are not sticky so you have to lay down when you have them on. I did feel like my under eye area was a little less dark and my skin was a little tighter, so I give these a thumbs up. 

MCMC Fragrance Phoenix Eau de Parfum
The top note of vanilla quickly translates to a honeysuckle when it touches skin. The lasting note is peach, and its lightweight essence personifies the story of Phoenix. NOT A FAN (big surprise!) Dear Birchbox, remember that one month I got a box without a fragrance sample. That was awesome. Please do it again...

Kiehl's Creme de Corps
Whether you have dry or oily skin, it’s aching for nourishment. This rich and hydrating body moisturizer provides all-day hydration for the largest organ you have. This sample size was perfect for my purse, and the lotion make my hands feel soft and moisturized. No strong smell which is a bonus for me! 

Masqueology 7D Moisture Cream
Developed by a team of Korean dermatologists, it triggers skin’s natural vitamin D production to keep your complexion healthy. Unlike the sun, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, rather than accelerating their development—who can ask for more? I really liked this moisturizer. I kind of wish the sample was a little bigger so I could have used it for a few more days to see how my skin felt after several uses. 

Masqueology Masque Cleanse
The innovative formula contains a bubbling technology that activates upon contact with air and works to gently exfoliate and clean deep into pores. This cleanser left my face feeling clean which I like, but it did leave my face a little on the dry side. 

stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer
Blends seamlessly into skin—and unlike some other shimmer powders and creams, the liquid formula won’t cake, clog, or budge. Plus, the easy-to-use brush allows for precise, goof-proof application. I tried this as both a lip shimmer and just under my eye brows go add a bit of a pop to my eye make-up. I will use the sample, but I don't think I would purchase it. 


  1. Every box must be different... I didnt get one of those items in mine!

  2. I am so jealous of that stila luminizer! It was one of the items I was really wanting to try.

  3. i really wanted the luminizer and i feel like everyone got it except me!! :(

  4. I had the same issue with the eye mask. Waaaay too slimy

  5. So jealous of the Stila Luminizer!!
