Birchbox Canada November 2015 Unboxing & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have my November Birchbox to share with you. This is the first month Canadians got a sample choice option (yay!).  I chose the LOC eyeshadow pencil in On Point, a silvery taupe.  Let's see what else came in the box.

Living Proom Perfect Hair Day (Phd) Dry Shampoo | Full-size $28

I don't use dry shampoo so this sample isn't a good fit for me.  I'll give it away to a friend.  This sample is worth $12.60.
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant | Full-size $32

At first I thought this was a spot treatment which I wasn't too excited about, but then I learned it's more of a toner which I can definitely use.  I'm looking forward to trying this exfoliant out.  This sample is worth $8.00.

Temple Spa La La LAgoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel | Full-size $18

Shower gel... how exciting.  Ok, so maybe you can sense the sarcasm in my voice.  This one is quite strongly scented, so I already know it's not something I'll buy but I will use this one up.  This sample is worth $3.04.

My Daughter Fragrances Joyful | Full-size $85

I don't wear perfume, so this one will get swapped.  This vial didn't have a size on it... so I'm going to guestimate a volume of 1.5ml making it worth $2.55.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick - On Point | Full-size $12

This is the product I choice from the sample choice options.  The colour leans more taupe in person but I still really like it.  Since this is the full-size, it's worth $12.

The total value of this box is $38.19 which is significantly more than the $14.95 I paid for it.  There are only two products which I'm looking forward to using.  I do really like that sample choice has come to Canada though, and that there was the option to choose a curated box this month so I think I'll stick with this sub a bit longer.  To find out more check out the Birchbox Canada website.  Don't forget to review your box items for an extra $5 in Birchbox points.

Happy polishing,



  1. I was happy to see the sample choices this month to, maybe we will finally start catching up to the US Birchbox? I choose the Tati box, I love Embryolisse and wanted to try out the PhD dry shampoo.

    1. I wasn't a huge fan of the copper shadow shade in the curated box and I had already tried two of the other products in previous boxes, so I went with the usual box and a different shadow. Turns out I got the PhD dry shampoo anyways :P.
