This month Birchbox partnered with Goop, a lifestyle website by Gwyneth Paltrow, to make a special Goop box. We got an email asking us whether we wanted the Goop box or the regular box and I opted for the regular box.
You can watch my unboxing video HERE.

The contents of my box
LA Fresh Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover: I was really excited to try out a new nail product and these polish remover pads worked very well. I only need one pad to take off the polish on all of my fingers and the scent was very nice. The only thing that I didn't like was the residue that the remover left on my fingers.
Luna Fiber bar: Let's be honest, does anyone like getting food from a beauty subscription service? I wasn't at all too happy about getting this, but I did try it. Let's just say that it's something that I would eat if there was absolutely nothing else to eat on this planet.
Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum: Umm...well I'm pretty sure I won't be using this, but I wonder why they thought putting sunscreen in a box at the beginning of fall was accurate.
Sprout Lip Balm: This was a product that I wasn't mad about getting, but I would've liked something different. I do use lip balm seldom so I guess this will come in handy one day. I must say that this smells just like cocoa powder...can we say fabulous!!!
Mary-Lou Manizer: This was the product that I was the most excited to get! The powder applies nicely and the color adds a nice glow to the skin. One thing that I will say is that I wish it was a tad darker. Being a woman of color, this powder was a bit too bright for my skin and I have to use a very light hand when I apply this product.
So there you have it! Did you get a Birchbox? Leave a link to your post/video or list them in the comments.
Overall, this month's box was okay, but it was my last box. I think the program is great, but I wasn't happy with the samples that I was getting.
