November Birchbox


This isn’t a bad collection but my favorite is the soap. It has a nice mild smell; not too overpowering. Although I do wonder if I can use the brow pencil as eyeliner since I don’t have any eyebrow issues but failing that, I’m sure I can find someone who will take it off my hands.

I’ve been getting a decent amount of anti-aging products and honestly, they all seem to be working for me in a very general sense. I can’t say I’ve noticed any major changes in my skin and I’ve always been told I either look my age or younger for the simple fact I take really good care of my skin aside for using anti-aging products. But a cashier recently told me I look 26 so something must be working. XD

September 2013 Brichbox


I will freely admit, this was another case of crazy squee-ing when I opened the box to see nail polish – the one beauty product I can consistently use with minimal fail. But of course there’s other things in there, too. XD

  • “Fox Hunt” from the Ruffian The Crowdsourced collection
  • Beauty Protect shampoo and conditioner
  • Soak rinse-free wash
  • Juice Beauty apple peel for sensitive skin

I’ll be honest, it’s cool that they  have household products but there is no way I can afford a tiny bottle of detergent at 14 oz. when I can make my own laundry detergent for pennies. It’s neat and all but I’m a librarian who writes on the side. I’m lucky I keep the lights on much less have high end soap of any kind.

The rest of this stuff is pending my experimentation to see if I like it or if it’s worth the prices. I’m not selling as many books these days. Gotta save cash wherever I can. 😉
