Birchbox - September 2013


This is a monthly cosmetic subscription box from a company called Birchbox.  The box includes around five samples per month for only $10 which includes shipping. The retail value of this box is $36.76.  Bargain! Included in my September box were the following products:
  1. Borracha - Pearly Wipes, 2 packets, $1.06 retail value
  2. Paula's Choice - spot corrector from blackheads to wrinkles, sample size, $4.25 value
  3. Davines - This Is a Sea Salt Spray, travel size, $10.80 value
  4. Elizabeth Arden - Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in the color Precious Petal, travel size, $10.65 value
  5. Ruffian - Nail Lacquer in the color Fox Hunt, full size, $10.00 value
This is my favorite box from Birchbox so far.  I like everything in it!  I will try the pearly wipes and spot corrector soon.  The sea salt spray gives my fine straight hair a nice wave at the bottom of my shoulder length hair.  It's perfect for humid days, since my hair will not hold a heat produced curl here in the south during the hot & humid summers.  It smells good like vanilla.  Unfortunately, it's a bit flaky and drying.  I have tried four different beach sprays and my favorite is Sexy Hair Beach Spray.  The lipgloss is a very pretty nude pink color with fine gold glitter.  It smells like vanilla cake and it's very moisturizing and not sticky at all.  It looks like more of a metallic glimmer than a gloss.  The nail lacquer looks more red and metallic in the bottle than it does on the swatch I did. It's more of an orange red and it only requires one coat!  I always do two, even if it is opaque in one coat because I always want to make sure I didn't miss any spots and it's evenly spread.  It's the perfect color for Fall.
