October Birchbox

My October Birchbox is finally here, after sitting at the post office for about 5 days..
I tried cheating and looking up my info on my account and they didn't have any info posted so I actually had no clue what I was getting this month. I did, however, turn to youtube and get a sneak peak of some boxes.

My Box was labeled BB#8

All my goodies.

The first thing I got was Ahava Mineral Hand Cream. A full 3.4oz sells for $20. TJ MAXX sells Ahava and I see it there all the time, so if I like this, I'm heading to TJ's. lol.

The second item I received was this Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer in Bronze. 
A full 2oz of this sells for $25.
Funny thing about this is I just got a Smashbox tinted primer in this color and I got it for free at Sephora, and I'm thinking the Smashbox one is more expensive...
I love the Smashbox one, so I'm excited to compare the two. 

My next item is Sunday Riley Modern Skincare Juno Transformative Lipid Serum.
A full 30ml of this sells for $125!
Apparently celebrities and models love and swear by this stuff.. I on the other hand, am not rich and probably, PROBABLY will not purchase this, unless, of course it has magical properties and turns me into a super model...ha. 
It's supposed to replenish, firm, and protect skin. We shall see...

I got this Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-in Conditioner. 
A full 6oz sells for $18.
I got Ouidad in my August box, and I liked it, so we'll see how this conditioner works.
You can find these products on Hautelook alot, so you can get these at discounted prices. 

I don't know why this picture turned sideways...but I can't fix it now that I'm actually blogging, so forgive me.
My card didn't say I was getting an extra, but I got this Ahava foot cream and they were not listed on my card, so an extra.
I really hope I like Ahava, because, like I said, TJ Maxx. lol.

My Overview:

I looked at all the other boxes before I got my box, and maybe I shouldn't have. I thought my box was okay, I pretty much have tried everything in it, just with different brands. I was really hoping I'd get something from Stila, like the eyeshadow or mascara, even though I have about 200 mascaras that I need to try before I could even get to it. haha. 
It wasn't a bad box, and I'm curious to see if I turn into a model. LOL. 

And now for a bonus.
I just wanted to share that I entered into a contest and just for entering I was sent this Clean Start by Dermalogica starter kit.
I am super excited to try this kit. I've heard wonderful things about Dermalogica. I'll give a review after I've used it for a while. 

The first two steps from the kit are 1.7oz and the moisturizer is .5oz. A good travel size kit.

What did y'all get in your Birchbox? Love it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments.
