October Birchbox & Birchbox Shop Haul

Hey everyone!!!!   How's it going?  The first round of the creeping crud is making its way through my house.  Which is not too shabby considering it's November already.  Last year once my son started pre-k he was sick the second week.  Must have built up his immune system!  He's got a nasty cough and runny nose and I feel like I have been hit by a truck.  Good times!

Anyway, I told you that I wanted to finish up my subscription boxes so here is my Birchbox for October.  It was so AWESOME!!  I think this is my best Birchbox ever.  

Take a peek:

Now when I got the email to choose my sample for this month I did opt for the lipstick, so I knew I was getting that.  I was surprised it was available, so I opted for that one.  Happy to get it.

When my box arrived I was surprised it was so heavy! Once I opened it up I saw why, look at this item!!!! It's the Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner.  I have head such amazing things about this brand, especially the hair mask, so I was pumped to see this.  The sample size is rather large so it looks like I will get lots of uses out of it to see if I like it!

I got a pretty good sized clariSEA Sea Salt Solutions Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant.  I love charcoal cleansers/exfoliators.  I feel like they really get my pores clean.  This you can either mix a bit up with water in your hand and scrub your face, or you can mix it in with some of your regular cleanser. I think mixing it in with your cleanser is BRILLIANT!

I received a small container of butter from ellovi in the vanilla scent.  It is made from, like the lid says, 6 ingredients.  You can use it for lots of different things, hand cream, cuticle care, and even on your lips!  It does smell sweet and I have to caution you that if you use it as a hand cream (as I did) it will leave you feeling a bit greasy.

This is the sample I picked, the full sized lipstick from ModelCo.  This is in the shade Kitty, it's so pretty and looks like it would be good on a range of skin tones.

I also got this super tiny eyeliner sample from Lord & Berry.  It's a glittery black eyeliner and the small size is great because I just don't know how often I am going to wear glittery eyeliner.

The last things is a small vial of Kérastase hair oil.  I have used this before and it is nice.  I will get a couple uses out of it.  I am pretty set in my current hair oil, but will use this one up.

On to the haul...well it is not much of a haul.  I bought two things.  I used some of my points towards a couple exfoliating cleansers.

I grabbed the suki exfoliate foaming cleanser.  I received this one in a previous box and it was so amazing I had to get the full sized one.  It smells amazing, like lemons! It leaves my face feeling awesome.  Even my husband uses it!

Since I had the points I grabbed a tube of the Michael Todd Tropical Fruit Enzyme Exfoliate Scrub.  I received a generous tube of a different one in an ipsy bag before and wanted to try more.  This was a perfect opportunity. I haven't tried this one yet but will report back.

I also got a couple samples with my order.  A hand cream and a tiny bottle of serum and primer. 
I use tons of hand cream so this is perfect!

I was so happy with my box this month!!!
