Birchbox September 2013 - What's Inside

September 27, 2013

Today I have a quick review of the September Birchbox. I signed up just recently but now I'm not entirely sure if I should keep it. The theme of this month's Birchbox box is Heritage. They wanted to focus on the brand's stories and about the anniversary for the company. See what was inside below!

1. Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo - My hair is very picky when it comes to shampoo. A few can work really well and most can't do what my hair needs. This shampoo was pretty good. I loved the smell, kind of sweet and the scent stayed in hair after which I like. This was a good shampoo but not sure if I would buy the full size. Didn't seem like it did anything really awesome. Buy the full size? Probably not.

2. Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45+ - This is an all-in-one product that provides light coverage, anti aging benefits, and great SPF. You can wear this alone or under foundation. I prefer to wear this alone since I feel like this evens out my skin tone and provides enough coverage on its own. I really like the way it feels on my skin and it lasts all day. Buy the full size? Yes.

3. RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer in Fox Hunt -This was my favorite item from the box this month. I don't have any orange nail polish quite like this one and it was really great quality. I used only two coats and it was opaque enough. There was no chipping at all after a week.

4. Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips - I'm glad I finally got to try this balm. I've been hearing a lot of about it and I know now why. This seems to instantly smooth and hydrate my lips without any scent. Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm was originally made for nursing moms, but now makeup artists use it. You can put it on lips, cuticles, and elbows as needed. Buy the full size? Yes.

5. Beauty Protector Protect & Condition - This conditioner was so-so. It smelled amazing just like the shampoo, but it didn't help take the tangles out of my hair. My hair tangles pretty easily so this conditioner wasn't one of the best I have used, it was just okay. Buy the full size? No, not for me.

Let me know your thoughts on Birchbox! I'm debating on if I should cancel and try something different or stick with this one.

  1. I got the same Ruffian polish & while I wasn't thrilled with the color, it makes a great Louboutin mani with Fox Hunt on the underside of my nails & OPI My Vampire is Buff on the topside!
