October Birchbox: Got goop?

Hello lovelies!! It's Birchbox time yay! This time, Birchbox has teamed up with GOOP. Goop is this fun website that has recommendations for food, travel, fashion, literature - you name it! Birchbox and Goop worked together to pick out products that were essential for fall. Let's hop right into it!
First, we have this body oil from Marie Veronique Organics. It's meant to replenish the skin, and can go all over the body. It had an interesting scent, and it was very moisturizing. I doubt it's a product I'll fall in love with, but it's interesting.
Next, I was excited to see this Lemon Zest nutrition bar from Luna. At first I thought it tasted good...then ok...then I hated it. It left a weird after taste in my mouth. This won't be something I'll purchase.
I was ecstatic to see this beautiful polish in my box! Of course it's by Essie, and it's in the color "carry on." I love the dark and rich purple, almost with a hint of brown. It is absolutely perfect for Fall, even though I know I'd wear it all year long! After applying this polish, I noticed it just takes a good two coats to complete the opaque look. However, it does look darker on the nail than in the bottle. On the nail, it looks more like a deep dark purple - almost black. I don't mind it though! It's totally gorgeous!!
This is the Daily Serum by Joanna Vargas. It's meant to brighten up the skin, using vitamins A, C, and E. I wasn't too enthused to try it out. It was green in color, and very silky. Much to my surprise, it felt so smooth going on my skin. I applied it after I cleansed my face, and before I put on my daily moisturizer. I did also notice that my face seemed to be less oily throughout the day. I wish I had a bigger sample to be able to test this longer though.
Last but not least, something for my lips! This the Lip Balm Flights by Sprout. It's an all natural cocoa lip balm. I happen to be in love with cocoa moisturizers. In fact, I only use cocoa butter to moisturize my skin, So the fact that I can use this on my lips is perfect! It smells so good and it's very moisturizing on my lips. The moisture actually does last!

So those were my products for the month! I was expecting a little more pizazz, especially since this was October. However, I'm happy alone with the Essie nail polish!
