October Birchbox Review

I finally got my invite for  Birchbox and my October box came. A little later then everyone else but it did come. I was going to post earlier but there was an issue with a couple of my items and I was waiting to see how they rectified the problem. They did and I will tell you about it when I get to those items. So here we go....

There was a choice in boxes for those that had been in the club for awhile between the Transformations box and a Goop box. I didn't get a choice and they sent me the transformations box.  Works for me as I'm just happy to be in.

 As with my other boxes you get a little card with a description of your items.
 So here is problem number one in my box.  My Juicy perfume sample has a broken cap and leaked out.  Luckily this and the twistband below were wrapped in some tissue so it didn't get on everything but I kindof like this scent so a little bumbed.  I wrote them and they wrote back apologizing and said that they would love to replace but are out of inventory so they gave me some birchbox points instead.  That works. I'll explain them below.
 This is a dry shampoo. I'm a wash my hair everyday kindof girl so I probably won't use this one but I'll pass it along.
 Aforementioned twistband.  I guess I was living under a rock but I had never heard of these until they came in another box last month.  They appear to be all the rage and this one is a deep purple that I love.  Problem is it really smells like the Juicy perfume. I'm trying to let it air out some before I use it.
 This is Mary-Lou Manizer from thebalm.  I must say I am quickly falling in love with theblam.  This is a three in one highlighter, shadow and all-over shimmer.  I can't wait to try this out
Lip butter ok I'll say it I laugh everytime I say lip butter it just gives me the giggles.  I did try this one out from Mox Botanicals already and I liked it.  I'm a little stuck on my Dr.Pepper Lipsmackers but I am trying to branch out.:)

Upon first look I thought this was a ziplock bag.  Well it is a form of ziplock bag but its thicker and oh so cute.  I can't wait to use this next week when I'm packing for my scrapbooking retreat.  This will be a great addition from Tili to my travel set.

So for those that don't know Birchbox is a subscription box that sends you a box of goodies every month for $10. They also have a review system where you get birchbox points for reviewing items and for every 100 points you get you get $10 off a Birchbox store purchase.  This is where you can find full size items of the samples you got in your box. Well remember I said they gave me points for my messed up items?  They did they gave me 100 points.  Woohoo that's $10 off a purchase.  I haven't bough anything since this was my first box but I can't wait to get some goodies after I've reviewed a couple months and gotten more points.
