Birchbox Review: October

Lots of good stuff in my October


. Let's dive in!

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream

, $38

I have an eye cream that I like, so I don't go into eye cream samples with high expectations. I like this Balance Me eye cream, but I don't love it. The creamy texture is nice and it goes on smoothly, but afterwards the skin around my eyes is a little tacky. If you're younger and looking for a natural eye cream, this may be for you.

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips

, $14.5

I love this stuff! Months ago, my friend Jenn let me try hers and I've been waiting patiently to receive my own sample. The name is weird, I know, but this stuff is legit. It's similar to Aquaphor, but thicker (and better). And you basically never have to re-apply it. I put it on before bed and it's still there when I wake up. This is going to be a game-changer for my lips during cold, winter runs.

Lord & Berry Paillettes Glitter Eye Pencil in Black

, $18

I haven't used this yet. Honestly, it looks a little cheap. It's small and the packaging isn't great. Plus, I don't typically wear products with glitter. I may try it for holiday parties and report back.

Essential Elements Wake Up Rosemary Shower Gel

, $19

I love this stuff, too! The minty scent is super strong, which I like. It's a very Christmas-y scent. Apparently mint and rosemary are natural mood-boosters, so maybe that's why I like it so much. The formula also has honey extract, which my dry, sensitive skin appreciates. I don't know if I can swing $19 for shower gel, but I want this.

Harvey Prince Petaly Noir

, $55
