I finally got my November Guest Editor Birchbox on a rainy Saturday which is pretty early for me and immediately checked the contents of my box!! Of course I already knew being Birchbox Ace to early access of sneak of November Birchboxes, including Guest Editor #GlamLifeGuru and additional add-ons! But there is a BIG difference seeing your selected products online and hold them in your hands! Check out below the items featured in this box by Birchbox and Glam Life Guru's Tati :

After trying several Living Proof shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream samples from Birchbox, I knew I need to try this dry shampoo that has been receiving great reviews of not only refreshing but actually cleaning the hair! Since I just finished relaxer my hair last Friday, I needed to freshen up my hair a little bit and this spray left my hair feeling a cleaner hair strands! This product is winner from Living Proof!

After showering and exfoliating my face at night, I applied this facial serum on my face and neck areas!! My skin felt moisturized instantly without feeling any "heavy" ingredients nor greasy feel! I applied this facial serum again in the morning and felt the same results before applying my regular day cream and makeup! I highly recommend this to all women suffering from dry Fall/Winter skin!

The latest new brand from Birchbox and curated by Tati Westbrook, I knew I wanted to try this eye shadow color back in October reviewing! I love how the pencil glide on my eye area and how this golden shade complimented my hazel eyes and skin tone!! I love this shadow color for the Thanksgiving until after New Year's Day!

After applying the facial serum, I applied this eye serum on my under eye areas before bedtime. My eyes felt really good and a little firmer instantly with this eye product! Again in the morning, I applied this eye serum again under my eyes before finishing with my day cream and makeup! This is my first time trying Shiseido via Birchbox and I am definitely putting this luxe serum on my Wish List! :)

After applying the face and eye serums, I concentrated on my dry lips with this Lip Enhancer! My lips felt conditioned without any "stinging or tingling" sensations at night! Again in the morning, my lips felt moisturized but I used this lip product again and then applied my lip color to my lips! I recommend this product for all year round for healthy and conditioned lips!

After trying these products in my November Birchbox GlamLifeGuru, I give it "five out of five" rating meaning I love all five items!! What is your favorite(s) in your November Birchbox and was it a Surprise or did you chose GlamLifeGuru like me?

Until next time...

  1. I received the Jouer Lip Enhancer in an ipsy bag about 6 months ago. When I first opened it and applied it, it had a chemical scent/taste and I almost gave up on it. But I tried it again and it was fine. I ended up loving it. When I finish using up my other lip enhancers, I'll definitely buy it. BTW, I don't use Blogger, but in Wordpress to get photos from my phone to show up in the right orientation, I sometimes crop them slightly on my phone and for some reason why show up in the correct orientation or I use the "edit" for media that WP has. If Blogger doesn't work that way, you should google how to do it in Blogger.

    1. It sure is...I can't wait to try their makeup remover and hydrating spray! They do have that box available at Birchbox for $15 (plus that will be 15 pts towards earning $10 for every 10 pts at Birchbox including reviews, texting about your monthly box, etc)...I can give you a referral link so you can get your first box for $5?

  10. Hi Ursula, always great to run into another Southerner! Thanks for stopping by- I just had to return the favor and stop by your corner of the internet! I LOVE the PHD dry shampoo- absolutely fabulous! I got the same LOC shadow stick as you- the color didn't look right on me- bummer because it's absolutely gorgeous! I may end up trying it another shade, though! :) -Renee http://beauxbeautyblog.com
