Birchbox October 2012

My October Birchbox finally arrived! I am always so sad when it takes a couple of extra days to get here cause I am so impatient to see the goodies I got. I opted for the Goop Box this time and I wasn't disappointed. For me, any box that involves nail polish is worth it! I think I might do a nail polish collection post at some point in the future. Anyway, I'll go ahead and show you what I got this time.

Lifestyle Extra: Luna Fiber | Chocolate Raspberry.  This bar was delicious!! I can never actually contain myself... I usually eat the treats as soon as I get them. I am all about healthy living and eating so anything that can combine fiber, raspberries and chocolate is great in my book! Gives me another option for a great snack!

Kiehl's Aromatic Blends: Orange Flower & Lychee- Liquid Body Cleanser. This Body Wash smells AMAZING! Just what I need to wake up to in the morning.  It claims to be mood boosting and I would agree! I am also very satisfied with the size of the sample. It gives me enough to try out the product and be able to form an opinion. I have only used it once so I have not noticed a difference in my skin (obviously) but the amazing scent definitely lingers on the skin! Looking forward to my next few showers :)

Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss- Supposed to be a nearly bare sheer lip gloss which apparently has subtle lip plumping abilities. I don't get any tingling so that is a great thing. I actually have fuller lips so I don't need any lip plumping but I am not against it. I got the Barely Coco "flavor" which actually smells and "tastes" delicious. It is a gloss but it is very moisturizing. I thought the sample size was a little small but I definitely enjoyed trying it out.

Joanna Vargas | Daily Serum. This is a Brightening serum with many vitamins that are supposed to be good for the skin and hyaluronic acid which I know is very moisturizing. A healthy glow is promised. I will wait a few weeks before trying this out simply because I am in the beginning stages of a new skin care regimen. I want to get settled in it before I make any changes but this looks like it would fit right in! Check out my skin care tab if you want to know more about what I am doing and my skin care journey :)

Essie Nail polish! Full size.  Power clutch. I have been LOVING the milky grey-ish nail polish lately. Very Fall-esque. I have it on my nails already. I just had to show you exactly how great this nail polish looks. It only took 2 coats to get it to this opacity. The only thing I would change about these nail polishes (especially for the price) is the brush! I would LOVE Essie to make a thicker brush for easier faster application. Or maybe I have just been SPOILED by Wet and Wild Mega last. Anyway, I love the color and I am always happy to receive a polish in my box!

Overall this has been another great Box. I look forward to what the next month will hold. Thanks for reading and don't forget to subscribe :)
