Birchbox is back with another collection of handpicked beauty buys that will help you look and feel your best this holiday season. The November theme is all about giving back and, this month, Birchbox partnered with RED to raise money and awareness for the global fight against AIDS. I’m always down to support a good cause. Let’s check out this month’s featured products…
Juice Beauty® Green Apple™ Peel Sensitive
Sample size 0.26 fl oz., value: USD $5.07
Even if you have sensitive skin, you can still enjoy the benefits of an at-home facial peel with this product from Juice Beauty. This award-winning peel is made from organic, fruit-derived hydroxy acids and raw sugar cane, which exfoliates to reduce breakouts and even out skin tone. Watch your complexion transform after just the first use.
TONI&GUY Classic Shine Gloss Serum
Sample size 1.0 fl. oz., value: USD $15.00
If you use hot hairstyling tools like a blower dryer or flat iron, you know the damage that can be done to your hair. Fight dullness and frizz with this innovative, lightweight serum that gives hair a gorgeous, silky sheen. Simply run a bit of this easy-to-apply serum through your locks to smooth away frizz and add shine to your hair. Love it!
MAKE Dual-Phase Eye Makeup Remover
Sample size 1.0 fl. oz., value: USD $5.50
After a long day, it’s so important to clean your face and remove your makeup. This gentle eye makeup remover by MAKE is an oil-based product that removes eye shadow, liner, and mascara with ease. Have sensitive skin? No worries. This pretty pink-colored remover is fragrance-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic.
Camille Beckman Platinume Gold Imperial Repair Hand Therapy
Sample size 0.25 fl. oz., value: USD $0.83
Hand washing can be hard on your skin; that’s why it’s important to follow-up with moisturizers and lotions to help restore your skin. This Platimume Gold Imperial Repair Hand Therapy from Camille Beckman is packed with botanicals, oils and more to repair cracked skin and restore moisture and softness. This is a must-have this winter!
Laura Mercier Longwear Crème Eye Pencil
Sample size: 0.8 g, value: USD $16.00
Laura Mercier cosmetics are fabulous and I was excited to discover this Longwear Creme Eye Pencil. The holidays are an awesome excuse to wear bold eye color like this fun plum-blue shade. This waterproof, smudge-proof product has a smooth formula and a creamy pencil point that makes it easy to draw the perfect cat-eye.
Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod
Sample size 0.39 oz., value: USD $1.24
Who doesn’t love chocolate, especially during the holiday season? This chocopod from Chuao Chocolatier features crisp, savory bacon layered with maple sweetness and smoked sea salt in a creamy milk chocolate. The flavor combination is crazy good! I’m thankful that this bar is just a mini size because I could have definitely kept on eating.

Holy smokes! This month’s Birchbox was amazing. The total value of the box was more than quadrupel the cost of the subscription, which is an incredibly good deal. My favorite beauty product this month is the TONI&GUY Classic Shine Gloss Serum. It’s the perfect travel size bottle and it made my hair look shiny and smooth. I was also big fan of the Chuao Chocolatier ChocoPod. It’s a sinfully delicious combination of savory and sweet! This was a great early Thanksgiving gift from Birchbox. I can’t wait to see what arrives next.
