Birchbox November Goodies:
Mox Botanicals Bath Milk
Birchbox Breakdown: They say milk does a body good, so we knew these indulgent Bath Milks from Mox Botanicals were just the ticket for a spa-rivaling experience at home. The oversized tea bags infuse bathwater with relaxing scents that’ll make you want to never leave the tub, even when you start to get all pruney. How It Works: Each sachet is filled with a blend of organic whole milk, nutrient-rich sea salt, and a mix of soothing botanicals. Available in Rose Petal, Jasmine Petal, Coconut & Vanilla Bean, and unscented Calendula & Oatmeal. How to Use: Dip the sachet into a tub full of warm water, allowing it to slowly dissolve, or pour the ingredients directly into the bath so the soothing botanicals (think: actual rose petals, coconut shavings) can float freely around you.
Chella Highlighter Pencil
Birchbox Breakdown: From BB creams to lip and cheek stains, we can’t help but be drawn to makeup multitaskers that can either save us time or clear up space on our bathroom counter. This pencil conceals, brightens, contours, shapes, lines, and defines—working 10 different ways to help you highlight your natural beauty. How it Works: This brightening formula visibly lifts and opens up the eyes when used on brow bones, water lines, or inner corners, and contours the face by drawing light to the high plains of the face (like the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and Cupid’s bow). It also helps you create a flawless finish with precise coverage of dark spots, acne scars, and blemishes, and creates clean lines around your lips when you’re rocking a bold lip color. Available in Ivory Lace, for light skin tones, and Latte, for medium skin tones. How to Use: Use wherever you need to highlight or hide. Blend with fingers or makeup brush.
Color Club® Harlem Nights
Birchbox Breakdown: Uptown, downtown, or somewhere in between, you’ll always look the part of the chic city slicker with Color Club®’s latest collection. (Even if you’re beyond lost and secretly checking the subway map on your iPhone.) These sleek polishes are an easy way to add a little dazzle and a little edge to your nighttime look—but they’re easily translatable to daytime wear too. How it Works: Like all of Color Club®’s polishes, each of these hues gives you longwearing, salon-quality nail color in just a few brushstrokes. Choose from six shades: Savoy Nights, a bluish silver glitter; Apollo Star, a pure silver glitter; Poetic Hues, a glossy cream; Sugar Rays, a tan shimmer; Baldwin Blues, a sophisticated not-quite-navy blue; and Lady Holiday, a light gray. How to Use: Apply a base coat, then use two coats of polish for a glossy, opaque finish. Follow with a top coat.
Ahmad Assorted Tea (Birchbox Extra)
Ahmad Tea’s rich brews are part of the royal collection, an elite selection of teas from UK-based companies that are served at Buckingham Palace.
Miss Jessie’s® Original Leave-In Conditioner
Birchbox Breakdown: Styling just became a cinch. Meet Miss Jessie’s® Leave-In Condish: The ultimate prep, this lightweight treatment fights frizz and moisturizes curls like a pro. Hair is left soft and free of oily buildup to weigh it down. We’ve def found the curly girl’s secret weapon. How it Works: The leave-in conditioner and detangler coats curls, locking in an extra layer between your strands and any styling products you use afterward. Soybean seed extract adds strength and shine, spirulina maxima extract hydrates, and glycerin strengthens and adds moisture while giving locks more definition and flexibility. Both laminaria digitata extract and pumpkin seed extract promote hair growth. How to Use: Apply a quarter-sized dollop section by section to damp hair. Then, comb or use your fingers to detangle. Follow with your usual styler.

Editor’s Tip: Start your haircare routine right with the moisturizing and detangling Miss Jessie’s® Original Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo.
My Assessment: I’m very pleased with the items received. I cannot wait to use the Miss Jessie’s Leave-In. I will hold off until I’m freshly relaxed so that I can fully understand the benefits it offers. I’m definitely down with using the bath milk! *serenity* I’m not waving my pom poms and cheering about the highlighter pencil. I seriously don’t see a need for this in my makeup stash but I will see what I can do with it. Nail polish is always neat to receive. I have tons of polish that I haven’t opened so I’ll just add this to the pile. #allaroundjunkie The tea sounds divine. I might take one sip out of pure curiosity just to see how they taste but my true plan is to use them for tea rinsing!!! 😎
