November 2011 Birchbox

Hooray, my November Birchbox finally arrived! Actually, it arrived last week, I just didn’t have time to go through it until today. I signed up for Birchbox (referral link) last month, at probably the WORST POSSIBLE TIME, right after the 10th of the month, which is when they ship the boxes out. That meant I had to wait until this month to receive my first one. It was rough, but I made it. For those of you who haven’t heard of Birchbox, it’s a sort of subscription service where you pay $10/month and get a little box filled with high-end samples of products that you might not get access to normally. Some of the selections in the past have been pretty great, and this month wasn’t too shabby, either. Here’s the list:

  • Avène Cleanance Soap-Free Facial Gel Cleanser
    “A European skincare star that uses thermal spring water to soothe and soften skin.”
  • Mineralogie Ultimate Cream Concealer
    “Made with finely ground minerals, this spot concealer hides under-eye circles and blemishes with zero cake-age.”
  • Thymes Eucalyptus body lotion (plus a sample of their Kimono Rose body lotion)
    “Put this one on your wish list: skin-saving botanicals and shea butter combine in a luxurious lotion.”
  • Zoya nail polish in Noel
    “This shimmery denim shade from Zoya’s holiday 2011 collection fits just right – just like your favorite blue jeans.”
  • Two Paper Dolls Ampersand coasters
    “Our favorite letterpress studio adds a hip, playful touch to everything they do, from notecards to coasters.”

Are any of you Birchbox subscribers? What did you get?
