Birchbox Review October 2013

Surprise! I have an October Birchbox¬†to show you, which may seem odd since I unsubscribed. If you remember my last post, you know that one of my items arrived damaged. I contacted customer service at Birchbox, and because of that I got sent a replacement box! Talk about outstanding customer service ūüôā

Box: Birchbox gives you beauty and lifestyle products each month.

Price: $10/month.

Contents: 4-5 samples each month, from mini to deluxe, & sometimes full-size!

The picture above contains the info card (products listed on back), and the blush samples. Sorry there is no box pictured, ironically this box was severely damaged by liquid due to one of my items leaking!

Glam Natural Cream Blush Samples (Value ?):
These were the beauty extras in this months box, and I thought it was awesome they sent 3 different shades!

Davines Sea Salt Texturizing Spray (Value $10.8):
This is the culprit of my damaged box! The top was loose and about half of it spilled all over my box, but luckily I still got to test it out. It is a nice spray that can give you those textured, beachy waves.

Le Couvent Des Minimes Gardener’s Hand Healer (Value?):
A healing and softening hand cream, perfect for the upcoming winter season.

Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T Skin-Perfecting Polisher (Value?):
This is supposed to exfoliate, tone, smooth, and moisturize; a true multi-tasker!

Ruffian Nail Polish ‘Fox Hunt’¬†(Value $10):
This is a vivid orange color, and undamaged as opposed to my last box, yay! Perfect color for Halloween.

Final Thoughts:¬†In regards to my replacement box being damaged (weird since I’ve never had a problem with my boxes prior to this), I did contact customer service again and they were very apologetic. I of course didn’t expect anything as this was my replacement, but they were very kind and are sending me a November box and gave me 100 points in my account. I’m very impressed with this service, it’s truly outstanding! In regards to the products, I thought it was a great value this month, the nail polish was worth the price of the box alone!
