BirchBox November 2011

I’m so excited to share what I received in my November BirchBox.

This box felt like I was being visited by some old friends, I was re-introduced to some great product lines I used to use, so I found it be-fitting for the Thanksgiving November theme. 

Borghese  Fango Ristorative Hydrating Mud  -  Tuscany in a tube! This Italian mud mask treatment hydrates dry dehydrated skin. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Guerlain  Shalimar Parfum Initial  -  (not pictured)  This is a new version of the classic Shalimar. A younger more flirty version, very feminine light airy floral perfume.

Thymes  Eucalyptus Body Lotion  -  Before you think you’ll attract koala bears when wearing this, let me tell you that this is the prettiest thing a koala would ever have the pleasure of smelling. It’s a light and clean scent, not overpowering like full on euclayptus and all the Thymes lotions are amazing. I LOVE the packaging of this sample. It’s in my purse and almost all gone! 

Thymes  Kimono Rose Body Lotion  -  Light rose scented lotion (extra, foil packet sample) 

Zoya  Nail Polish in Sooki  -  A beautiful glossy red cream mini polish, perfect for the upcoming holiday! 

Two Paper Dolls  Ampersand Coasters  -  (not pictured)  Coasters are always a nice extra, what els am I going to put my drinks on? ;)
