September 2015 Birchbox - Review

This month for sample choice I decided to leave my box up to chance because nothing really stood out for me.  So, if you don't know already Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription box service.  Each month you pay $10 and you are then shipped 5 beauty, grooming, and/or lifestyle samples that are personalized towards you.  Birchbox also has their own shop which you can use the points you accumulate from reviewing the products you get each month to purchase products you love or maybe to try something new.  For each product that you review you will receive 10 points and for every 100 points you get will equal to $10 in the Birchbox shop.

This month I actually received 5 products in my box but I did not really like the perfume sample I received so I ended up giving it away before realizing I should probably take a picture of the product first.  Each month also come with a card that tells you each product you received that month, the card also tells you what the product is and how to use it.  It seems I forgot to take pictures of two things this month.

This was the first product I received this month and it was actually also one of the sample choices.  Sometimes even when you don't pick a sample choice you may receive one of those items in your box.  This can be good if you end up receiving an item you actually wanted but were unable to choose in time.  Although I didn't particularly want this product I do like this eyebrow pencil a lot.  I received this in the shade medium brown which ended up being a good match for my eyebrows.  The full-size of this can be purchased in the Birchbox shop for $23.

This was the second product I received and the one that I was most excited about.  I love the packaging and I also love how big the sample of this is.  Not only does this product, in my opinion, smell amazing it also did an amazing job on my hair.  I used this when my hair was damp and while it was dry and both times it gave my hair a nice beachy texture.  This is probably one of my favorite products I've received since being with Birchbox and I definitely recommend this.  The full-size of this can be purchased in the Birchbox shop for $27.

This was the next product I received and I was really excited to use it when I heard it smelled like coffee.  This product is said to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.  Now, I haven't used it enough to know for sure if it really works at doing as it says, but I will definitely keep using this product.  Although I haven't noticed a difference in my dark circles, which aren't too noticeable to begin with, it does make my the skin under my eyes feel very moisturized.  Plus, it does smell amazing.  The full-size of this can be purchased in the Birchbox shop for $25.

This was the last product I received and I love body scrubs so this was another good one for this month.  After using it I'm not so sure that I like how it smells but the scent is somewhat faint so it's not so bad.  I really enjoy this scrub though because my skin feels super soft and hydrated.  This body scrubs is sugar-based and contains crushed olive granules to delicately exfoliate dry skin.  It is also rich in natural oils which include olive oil, safflower oil, and grapeseed oil.  Plus, it is Paraben and Phthalate Free which is good.  The full-size of this product can be purchased in the Birchbox shop for $32.

Overall I'm really happy with my box this month.  Each of the products shown above will definitely be used.
