Birchbox+goop October 2012

Finally got my October Birchbox yesterday!
This month's Birchbox is a collaboration with goop- a lifestyle website publication ( Birchbox subscribers were given the option to choose a regular monthly Birchbox or a Birchbox + goop collaboration box. Though I was not familiar with goop, I decided to go for that option.

In my October box are:

What, Birchbox? You only checked off two items on my card? eheh

Essie nail polish in Power Clutch (goop pick)

Joanna Vargas Daily Serum

Kiehl's Aromatic Blends: Orange Flower & Lychee- Liquid Body Cleanser

Naked Princess Shine Luscious Lip Gloss in the shade Barely Coco

Lifestyle Extra: LUNA Fiber Chocolate Raspberry Bar

I read some blogs and saw videos about how upset some subscribers were this month with both the goop box and the regular Birchbox. I can understand. One of my favorite nail polish brand is no doubt Essie. I love their formula and the price isn't that bad. I was pleased to get an Essie nail polish this month but I am also disappointed that it's pretty much the same color as Color Club's Status Update that I got in my box last month.

*sigh* Besides that snafu, I now have another naked princess gloss (love naked princess gloss), a daily serum to brighten my face, a refreshing body cleanser, another greyish dark/ charcoalish nail polish, and a fiber bar to hold me over until next month's Birchbox.

Drop me a line! Tell me what you got in your box. Thanks for reading :)


  1. Hi, I got the same thing as you. Wasn't thrilled, but the LUNA bar was yum!! I am a huge fan of GOOP and gotta say that I was disappointed:

    1. Hi Tina. I share your feeling of disappointment with this month's box too. Although I shouldn't complain since the last couple of boxes have been worse, I feel that I got 2 repeat items in my box. I was looking forward to enjoying my LUNA bar but it was so dry!
