i have always been a gwyneth paltrow fan. but i became a forever fan when i heard her voice in the movie “duets”. “cruising” by huey lewis and gwyneth paltrow is one of my top five sing-a-long songs in the car. if you aren’t familiar with goop.com, it is a weekly lifestyle publication that features recipes, travel guides, fashion and more and was founded by gwyneth. so yeah, when birchbox asked me if i wanted to receive the goop curated birchbox in lieu of the normal october box…my answer was a big fat YES. i have not had a chance to try all of the products but here is what i got:

ddf  wrinkle resist pore minimizer serum: i keep hearing great things about ddf products. i have yet to try the brightening wash that i got last month so maybe next month i will get another ddf product and i can just try them all together! you know i LOVE me some anti-aging products!

eve lom cleanser and muslin cloths: i have not tried this face wash yet but at $80/jar…it better be good! i do like the idea of using muslin cloths to scrub/exfoliate with though!

amika obliphica nourishing mask: i LOVE amika products and this hair mask is no exception. there is a reason it has 200+ reviews with over 4.5 star rating! left my hair feeling super soft. pretty sure i will be purchasing the full size product.

chantecaille faux cils mascara: i LOVE the brush on this mascara. as with ALL mascara’s, i think they usually take about a week to show their full potential. something about them drying out a bit makes them apply better imho. so far…i am a fan.

the EXTRA: luna bar in lemon zest. i am not normally a “protein bar” kinda girl but i am a BIG fan of most anything lemon flavored. i ate this bar immediately and may even grab a few the next time i am at trader joes. i tend to skip breakfast quite often (i know…bad idea) so having these in my car would probably be a good idea for a snack on the go!

    Very curious about that hair mask since it has such good reviews…I really need a deep conditioning treatment for mine. Also, I love anything lemon too #twins 🙂

    Chantecaille is an amazing brand, from everything I hear. TheCurrentCustom on youtube (one of my favorite vloggers, named Lorraine) raves about it so often! I really have been meaning to try some of their things. Keep us updated on the mascara?

    I received a Goop Birchbox too but mine was completely different! I’ve had such a busy week I haven’t had a chance to try anything out but it’s on my to-do list this weekend! Love your review!

    Count me in on loving lemon–especially those Luna bars. I used to live off them in my early 20’s (also probably not a good idea, but eh. they’re tasty!). I missed the chance to opt into this box–my regular October Birchbox was a bit of a bummer, so I’m jealous!
