Another Month of Meh...AKA: My October Birchbox + goop Unboxing

I'm not going to ramble on ad nauseum about this month's Birchbox. I was excited for it, since I opted to receive the goop collaborated box, but perhaps I would've been better off sticking with the regular box. For better or for worse, here are the deets on the contents of my October Birchbox + goop  box...

(MALIN + GOETZ) bergamot body wash (Full Size MSRP $18)- This moisturizing shower gel contains a hefty dose of purifying bergamot to whisk away dirt and bacteria. (The bottle in the box is 1 oz., which for me is just enough for one use for myself and perhaps a tad for the lil bits if I'm feeling generous. It smells nice and herby and fresh.)

Ouidad Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream (Full Size MSRP $26)- Give curls instant definition with this moisture-enhancing styling cream, which has hydrolyzed silk proteins to tamp down frizz. (This would probably be a great sample if I didn't already have the full size bottle (stay tuned for the CGC). That's not Birchbox's fault, so they get a pass for this one.)

Sprout Lip Balm Flights (4 Lip Balms $18)- Made in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, these yummy balms are made with organic coconut butter to nourish dry lips. (Definitely the star of this months's box IMHO. Mine smells delightfully like cocoa, glides like butter over my lips, and you can't go wrong with anything that touts coconut oil as the main ingredient!)

Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum (Full Size MSRP $20-$42)- Wear this award winning brand's silky SPF 30 serum under your makeup for a weightless UV shield. (I'm sure it's great, but honestly-meh...)

These were called "lifestyle extras"...

LUNA LemonZest (Pack of 15 $18.75)- These zesty snacks are a goop fave. They're perfect for keeping you full in between meals (plus they can double as a healthy dessert!) (I don't care for lemon desserts, but that's not BB's fault either. The problem with this one is that, though I don't mind receiving the occasional snack in my box, I would rather it be something a little bit more...exotic.)

(MALIN + GOETZ) grapefruit face cleanser (Full Size $30)- This foaming gel uses amino acids to wipe out impurities and zesty grapefruit extract to dissolve dead cells. (Again, meh)

So there you have it lovelies, my October Birchbox unboxing. Nothing to rave about, but not so offensive that I'd cancel. Here's hoping that next month is better! Until next time...
