YAY! So my October 2011 Birchbox arrived! Surprise! I never receive a shipment notification until it's already here so it's always truly a surprise.
This is what I got:
- Pangea Organics FacialMask (1 oz)
- Orofluido Elixr (0.17 oz)
- Befine Lip Serum (0.34 oz)
- blinc Mascara (0.141 oz)
- Tea Fort Minteas (1 oz)
This month's Birchbox has an approximated value of $37. I got this result by figuring an estimate of the products per ounce. Which is pretty awesome considering Birchbox is $10/monthly.
I'm totally excited for the Pangea Mask. I love Pangea Organics and can't imagine being disappointed by their products. I'm also curious about the Minteas. They taste good. Very natural. I haven't tried any Befine products or any by Orofluido so I will update with what I think of those in a couple of days.
The biggest disappointment is the blinc Mascara. I truly dislike it. I've gotten it before and its not for me at all. The removal process is unlike anything else you will ever have to go through. You're suppose to "pull out" the tube material that the mascara forms around your lashes - which seems cool until your lashes start coming off with the mascara. It was painful and not worth losing lashes over.
With the exception of the mascara, I'm satisfied with October's Birchbox.
