November Birchbox!

Its time to open my November Birchbox!  I am excited to see what is in this months box as the theme is ‘More Good’.  

So this is what my box looks like when it arrives, I open it and all of the fun things I received!

First off in my box I have Mox Botanical Bath Milks.  Looks interesting, and I am curious what this smells like, it seems a bath is in my future…

Next in the adorable little blue envelope is DDF Amplifying Elixir and theBalm Stainiac in ‘Beauty Queen’.  Not sure how the DDF Amplifying Elixir will work for me it says on the description card it is for boosting your natural moisture barrier, not even sure what that means but at $70 for a full size product, it had better work miracles!  I have never tried a product from theBalm I didn’t like so I am excited to try this cheek and lip stain.  I have never used this product before so a review will follow.

And next in my little box of awesome is  ‘Folle de Joie’ from Joie.  Yes as I typed that out I am trying to say it out loud in my best French accent and I have no idea… That is what 3 years of Spanish (which I don’t speak or read either…) will get you.  Anywho if you can’t tell it is a perfume or as the French would say eau de parfum….  According to the handy dandy card, this pricy full size bottle of perfume has a fresh scent which blends Mandarin, Rose and Sandalwood.  While this sounds like a heavenly concoction, I don’t think I will ever be willing to fork over $98 for a bottle…

Next is guess what… A nail polish!  If you read my last post on my Ipsy bag you know how I feel about nail polish.  I have way too many as it is and I am rarely excited by the color I receive as I have at least two of the same or similar enough color in my ever expanding collection.   This is from the Color Club Collection and is in the color ‘Baldwin Blues’.

Lastly for my “Lifestyle Extra” I received three samples of Mighty Leaf Tea.  How weird is it that this is perhaps what I am most excited about?! This is a beauty box and I am most excited about the tea samples… What can I say working in a tea room for 3 three years does that to a girl. My samples are Green Tea Tropical which is obviously a green tea; Vanilla Bean which is a black tea; and Organic African Nectar which is a herbal tea.  I may save these for January and let them become my tea of choice during Downton Abbey.
