November 2011 Birchbox

Wow, I am on fire with posting today! I think I'm feeling motivated by the giveaway, lol.

Atelier Cologne in Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue - It's a nice touch that they packaged it in the waxed paper with a postcard (as opposed to the usual little throw-it-away-instantly card), but I just don't do stoppered perfume samples. Yawn.  It may smell good, but I'm just not a dabber, I'm a spritzer! It'll probably wind up freshening my wastebasket, yo. 

Borghese Fango Delicate Active Mud for Delicate Dry Skin - I've had a sample of this before and it's a pretty nice mud mask, but not something with results so drastic I feel the urge to buy it.

Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste - I just used up a sample of this and didn't see any results.  I wouldn't expect to from a sample-size anyway, so I'm not condemning the product.  But I would never pay $21 for a toothpaste! Srsly?

Zoya Nail Polish in Noel - Yay! They can send me all the Zoya nail polishes they want <3 I was going to go with Orly Gumdrop on my toes tonight, but I'm going to do this (decidedly Hanukkah-esque silvered blue) instead!

Treat - Two Paper Dolls Ampersand Coasters. Well, I am a fan of the humble ampersand. I probably ought to use coasters more than I usually do, too.  I like this treat (way better than a crummy-looking hairband for a girl with little hair!).


  1. Those look awesome! I keep debating signing up for Birchbox. I love Zoya polishes--I'm currently waiting for an order from the B2G2 promotion they had last week!

  2. Hi Amanda! I understand why you're on the fence. I'm still not sure I'll renew but I bought a year ahead so I have several months left to decide if I want to re-up :) I'll probably do some kind of a rehash post at that time.

  3. Oh man...So jealous you got a Zoya nail polish! lol

  4. Speaking of birchbox, I didn't even get mines yet! I was searching online to see who else received November's Birchbox. Thank you for posting this, it gives me an incite of what I'm going to get! I actually got that post card from I thing last two birchbox I had.

  5. Fango mud sounds nice! It's been on my radar, but I haven't really gone out and tried at yet. I'm not sure I'd want one for delicate skin though--- full power for me =P

  6. @Riya, it looks like you'll get an Anastasia gloss or a Zoya polish. Nice =)
    @Dovey, yeah, I wish it was hardcore! lol

  7. Everything looks so good, especially the Zoya nail polish and Borghese mud!


I love comments <3
