November Birchbox Review

The November Birchbox was well worth the $10 price tag. The full size Chella highlighter pencil alone retails for $18! One of my fave boxes to date. Here’s what I got:

Aloxxi Volumizing & Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner: The ultra gentle formula (free of sulfates, parabens, and sodium chloride) relies on apple stem cell technology to strengthen hair and encourage growth, and boasts a blend of 10 botanical extracts designed to extend the life of your color. My thoughts: I was introduced to Aloxxi hair products at Luckyfabb and have been a fan ever since. Plus I always love to receive sample sized shampoo & conditioners for my travel bag!

Color Club® Harlem Lights Collection (in Baldwin Blues): Like all of Color Club®’s polishes, each of these hues gives you long-wearing, salon-quality nail color in just a few brushstrokes. Choose from six shades: Savoy Nights, a bluish silver glitter; Apollo Star, a pure silver glitter; Poetic Hues, a glossy cream; Sugar Rays, a tan shimmer; Baldwin Blues, a sophisticated not-quite-navy blue; and Lady Holiday, a light gray. My thoughts: I’ve got quite the collection of Color Club polishes now! Excited to give this one a try.

Chella Highlighter Pencil: This brightening formula visibly lifts and opens up the eyes when used on brow bones, water lines, or inner corners, and contours the face by drawing light to the high plains of the face (like the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and Cupid’s bow). It also helps you create a flawless finish with precise coverage of dark spots, acne scars, and blemishes, and creates clean lines around your lips when you’re rocking a bold lip color. Available in Ivory Lace, for light skin tones, and Latte, for medium skin tones. My thoughts: I usually use liquid highlighters but this works very well for brightening your eyes! And I will totally use it on my lips (cupid’s bow) too!

Fatty Sundays Gourmet Chocolate Covered Pretzels: If you expected simple pairings of pretzels and chocolate, then you didn’t come prepared. Each pack contains five precious pretzel sticks, in one of nine mind-blowing flavors: Smooth Mint (milk chocolate with some minty oomph), Toffee Crunch (milk chocolate with crunchy bits of toffee), Toasted Coconut (milk chocolate with flakes of golden coconut), Classic PB&J (milk chocolate with peanuts and tangy raspberry), Berry Granola (white chocolate with a coating of fruity granola), Mocha ‘Spresso (milk chocolate with a hearty dash of java), Peppermint Crunch (dark chocolate with chunks of peppermint), Chocolate Sprinkle Confetti (milk chocolate with rainbow sprinkles), and White Chocolate Sprinkle (white chocolate with rainbow sprinkles). My thoughts: DELICIOUS! I got toasted coconut flavor and loved it. The sprinkles ones are so cute. Perfect stocking stuffer idea!
