Birchbox│September 2013

Hey, lovelies! I received my Birchbox yesterday and I must say, this month's contents were quite exciting-for me, anyway. This month's theme is Heritage, which spotlights brands and the special history behind their products. September is also Birchbox's anniversary month, so a big congrats goes out to them!

Let's take a look at what was inside my September box!

Birchbox-September 2013

Birchbox-September 2013 Contents

Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Delirium│All Birchbox subscribers got a Ruffian Nail Lacquer in their boxes this month. I received Delirium-a bold and vibrant purple, which is just perfect for the coming fall/winter months. When I swatched this color on my nails, I was super impressed with the formula. It's smooth, it flows on the nails beautifully, and the color is extremely saturated. Also, the bottle is adorable, to boot! In my swatch picture below the color looks to be a lighter hued purple, when it's in fact a much deeper and richer purple in person. My camera gets a little wonky sometimes when it comes to photographing vivid colors-sorry! (Full Size: $10)

Benefit Sugarbomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss│This sheer gloss is very pretty. I love the glistening shimmers in it, and the texture is really smooth and comfortable on the lips. I think this gloss would pair up nicely with a neutral, or smokey eye look. (Full Size: $16)

Ruffian Nail Lacquer-Delirium (2 Coats, No Top Coat)

Racinne Ultimate Youth Power Eye Serum│I love receiving skincare products that target the eye area. This moisturizing anti-aging eye serum helps minimize fine lines, restore firmness, and protect the skin against environmental impurities. (Full Size: $36)

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive│This face peel contains fruit-derived acids to help gently exfoliate the skin. This also helps reduce fine lines and lighten hyperpigmentation, thus revealing a much firmer and brighter complexion. I have a couple of acne scars that I would love to have lightened up a little, so I am really looking forward to trying this peel. (Full Size: $39)

Coola Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face│This tinted sunscreen is comprised of antioxidant-rich ingredients like borage seed oil and evening primrose extract, which help rejuvenate and minimize early signs of aging. I love that this sunscreen is organic and mineral based. The matte and tinted formula are great features, seeing as I am always looking for products that will even out my skin tone and tame oily areas. (Full Size: $36)

My September Birchbox is a total win! I am very pleased with the product variation this month, and it's going to be so fun to test out and try everything. I can't wait to see what Birchbox has in store for us in the October box!

  1. What an exciting box!! So many great products.

  2. That looks like a really good box. I left Birchbox a while ago because I wasn't really getting that great of stuff.

    1. I loved this month's box, LaNeshe! I'm sorry to hear that you became displeased with your Birchboxes. I know that some months are better than others, but I decide to stick around because you never know what will arrive in your box, next. I love surprises! Let me know if you decide to give Birchbox another chance!

  3. Very practical products the Birchbox gives. I'm ridiculously loving that nail polish. It's high time I subscribed I think. xx

    1. The nail polish is gorge! I hope you give Birchbox a try, Caroline!

  4. That polish looks spectacular on you! I need to sign up for birchbox...I love trying new things!!
