Birchbox September 2012!


Hola! Hello! I wanted to do a quick post to show you my September 2012 Birchbox! This is one of the Beauty Sampling Subscriptions I get, $10 a month and always a nice surprise :) If you haven't signed up yet you can be awesome and do so by using my link, you get awesome stuff, I get points for more pretty things to show you later on :) https://www.birchbox.com?raf=knp4h

The goodies:
Of course the first thing I grabbed was the nail polish! Oh pretty blue :) - This is probably my favorite item from this month's box... but I might be biased, I'm a nail polish addict!
I had to swatch it right away, 2 coats gave me full opacity, went on smooth and evenly! Color Club Nail Polish - #5786 Insta-This

Just a reference so you can see what size the bottle is.

The second product I grabbed was Jouer Matte Moisture Tint SPF 15 - Oil Free. While it looks tiny I have learned you don't need to use a lot when it comes to this type of product, definitely excited to try it. Full size is $38 for 1.7 oz

I know some people don't like getting Fragrance samples and I have gotten some gross ones before hahaha but I do like trying them out. I am cheap and rarely will I buy real perfume (but I will gladly take it as a gift), so having different little samples is awesome because I can wear different scents without having to buy full size bottles.

Next up, this fabulous "Soy Body Whip" 

It smells delicious, I stink at explaining scents and stuff like that, but to me it's flowery without being old lady-ish with a hint of Gardenia scent maybe? I am pretty impressed with the size of the sample, I had to put some on my elbow and it sure feels nice :)

Here is the description :)

I got a "Birchbox Custom Lace Hair Tie" by Twistband. I know some people dislike getting these hair ties but I love them! I got my first one (skinny headband) from Birchbox back in May and then had to buy a bunch more, I have them now in every color, hair ties and headbands! :) 

Even got my mom into them! She found some awesome ones at Dollar Tree, they work just as well and they are a killer deal, you get 6 headbands for $1.00 in different colors. This one is pretty, I don't have any lace ones :) and the color is one that I definitely wear often so I will be using this soon :)

This was one of the "Extra" items, Hollywood Fashion Secrets - Fashion Tape. 

Here is what's inside the little envelope, 4 tape pieces. I'm intrigued, this is something I wouldn't mind trying but I would probably never buy myself so I'm glad I got it. Ultimately that's what services like Birchbox are all about, introduce you to products and/or brands you would not have purchased on your own.

Overall I am satisfied with this box and feel like I will use EVERYTHING I got this time :)

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you get?

Thank you for stopping by,
Fiorella :)
