Revive and Restore | Birchbox Unboxing October 2016
I was so excited when I saw this box because this is actually what you need when fall comes around. The season has changed and your skin/hair freaks out. So while the leaves are changing colors and falling off trees, you don't need a similar effect on your face. So these products are perfect for that. And of course I love that it's all cruelty free.
If you want to try out Birchbox, it is $10 per month. You can choose one of three options every month: do nothing and they will pick 5 products for you based on your beauty profile, pick one of the sample items and the other 4 will be picked for you, or choose the curated box where you get 5 set items that are revealed during box customization every month. You can also choose to add on additional items from more beauty products to lifestyle items.
This Works deep sleep pillow spray
Clinically proven to aid a good night's rest with the infusion of lavender and chamomile. They did an independent study with 200 subjects all eighteen years or older including 100 ex-prescription users, compared to no product and found that this pillow spray really helps participants fall asleep faster as it helps to reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality. I can't wait to try as I have been having horrible insomnia lately. The full size for this product is 75 ml and costs $29.
Gold-standard dry shampoo that instantly cleans while boosting strength and silkiness, minus any texture or weight. The full size container is 6 oz and costs $44.
Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Crème RICH
A face cream that restores skin's natural moisture barrier and balances hydration levels 24/7. The full size is 1.35 fl oz and costs $32. As with most face products you have to use it for about 28 days to really see the difference.
GLAMGLOW POWERMUD Dualcleanse treatment
I love GLAMGLOW products so I was excited to see this in my box this month. It's made with Brazilian white clay that transforms mud to oil in order to deeply clean and soften your skin. The full size is 1.7 oz and costs $69. This is also good for any skin type so whether you're normal, dry, combination, or oily it should work for you.
MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick in Magnolia
This is a long-lasting and smudge-proof lipstick that is hydrating, so it can also be used as a lip treatment while giving you beautiful medium violet with pink undertone lips all day long. The lipstick is made with antioxidant vitamins, rosehip, soybean, safflower oils, aloe, and chamomile. MAKE also donates 10% of sales to We See Beauty Foundation, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to support women-led, women-owned businesses in at need communities.
