November Birchbox Review

The November Birchbox was a Guest Editor box from Youtube beauty star Tati Westbrook. I was excited to try it because I ve seen her on YouTube and she s gorgeous. Here s what I thought of the GlamLifeGuru box.

Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum – $36

Pros: Non-greasy, dries very quickly, super lightweight.

Cons: Has a slightly sticky texture and did not feel super hydrating on my skin.

Verdict: I would not buy. I ve determined that I much prefer a gel or cream moisturizer for my face.

Jouer Lip Enhancer – $16

Pros: Super-moisturizing. Makes lips soft and fuller.

Cons: I wish I had more of it!

Verdict: Will be purchasing! I absolutely loved this product, I have super dry lips (especially in the morning), I put this on before bed and it was a big help.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Eye Concentrate – $65

Pros: Creamy yet lightweight texture and minimizes the appearance of dark circles.

Cons: A little on the pricey side.

Verdict: Would buy. Although I prefer cream moisturizers for the rest of my face, I really like eye serums. Especially this one that has an unusually creamy textures. Even though it s slightly expensive, a little goes a long way with this product.

Living Proof. Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo – $22

Pros: Completely eliminates oil and refreshes hair while adding some volume.

Cons: Leaves a white, flaky residue.

Verdict: Probably would not buy. I have to say, this is the most intense dry shampoo I ve used, the spray comes out so strong it s like a fire extinguisher. It s effective in soaking up oil but leaves a residue and just doesn t work the best with thick hair texture.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick Trio – Rise & Shine – $25

Pros: Love the creamy texture and was long lasting without creasing. I also loved the golden shadow, perfect for my green eyes.

Cons: I only got to try one of the three colors of the trio.

Verdict: Probably would buy. It really liked the texture and rich colors of this shadow. The stick is also perfect for mornings when I m running behind.

Overall, pretty good picks. The Lip Enhancer is a must-have and I m so glad I tried it!
