October 2016 Birchbox Review Wrap-Up

October 2016 Birchbox Review - Box Contents

October’s Birchbox was all about beauty products that revive and restore. The dr. brandt exfoliant is perfect for giving your skin an anti-aging treatment a couple of times each week. It has small beads that gently buff away dry and dead skin. It also has jojoba, aloe vera and chamomile to soothe and soften. Our face felt super clean and refreshed after just one use.

To help our eyes look fresh and awake, the Air Repair eye cream is a great solution. This eye cream feels thicker than some other eye creams but goes on very smoothly. It definitely provided moisture and we look forward to minimizing the appearance of our “smile” lines around the eyes.

Another skin care products in our October Birchbox was the Embryolisse moisturizer. We were surprised to learn that this moisturizer is actually an all-in-one product that not only moisturizes, but is also a makeup remover and an after-shave treatment. It has shea butter and aloe vera to nourish your skin.

Mascara is one of our go-to makeup products so the Marcelle Mascara was another great pick for our box. The curved brush helps you get mascara on to every lash without clumps. The formula goes on smooth and makes our lashes look thicker and longer.

We’re big fans of not washing your hair every day. (It helps avoid stripping natural oils that keep your hair healthy.) At the same time, we don’t want to be walking around with greasy-looking hair. The R+Co Dry Shampoo quickly absorbs excess oils without any residue. It has a light formula that doesn’t weigh your hair down.
