Birchbox September 2013 Review


I always try to stay off of the Birchbox website whenever I hear that the spoilers come out. I would have it be a surprise every month. That's why I was so excited to see my Birchbox box sitting on my dining room table tonight!!


Cost: $10/month

I will stay this over and over, if you've never tried a subscription box before, get Birchbox! They are a great starter box.


Sea Salt Primer  ($10.75)

Well, this one bottle of sea salt spray was worth more than I paid for my entire box! I love how sea salt spray makes my hair look. This is a very generously sized bottle too! I could tell that there was something heavy in my box as soon as I picked it up.



When I read "nipple balm" I was like, what the... Then I read the last line and felt much better about it LOL. Apparently this is kind of a use-all cream. I'll end up using it for my lips but apparently you can use it on other things too, like your feet!



I have no idea how this mascara's quality is, but there is one thing that I absolutely love about it. The packaging is amazing. I love anything with a pink pearl finish. I have so much mascara that needs to be used, it's not even funny. I'll probably end up trying this out tomorrow before I go to work. 


Now for my favorite part, the little box!



I'm not a huge fan of this color for my nails. In person, it looks like a mossy green color. My favorite eyeliner ever is this exact same color, I just don't like it that much on my nails. I'll definitely be able to match it with some outfits but I would have liked a different color better.



I love Malin + Goetz products. I got a bottle of shampoo from them a couple of months ago and it was amazing. I can't wait to see how their moisturizer does. I'm sure it will be great!

Total Value of the Box: $36.65

Once again, Birchbox has impressed me for this month. They sent out some really great items that I know I will actually use! 

If you got this month's box, don't forget to go to the Birchbox website and fill out your reviews! You got 50 points for reviewing all of your products from your box and that converts to $5 :)

  5. I'm actually wearing Mally mascara right now. It's soft, non-crusty and an okay everyday mascara. I bought her multi-piece kit. What a fabulous box you got. The sea salt primer amazing!
