September 2011 Birchbox

I had an issue with my Birchbox subscription this month. It was the 13th and I had not received an email saying my box had shipped. I checked their website and it did not even show a September box. I contacted Birchbox via twitter and email and they ignored both. I contacted again the next day and got immediate help and they shipped my box out right then. Though yes, I was disappointed in their shipping this month I love the products they sent.

1. Truth Art Beauty | Face Nourish - Birchbox Blend
*DIY skincare: We mix and matched our favorite ingredients for this custom face oil, which nourishes with organic argan, pumpkin seed, and geranium oils.
*The smell is decent, it does not leave my skin oily which I was concerned about since it is an oil. It has been keeping my face moisturized and smooth and silky. So far I love this product and I am really happy I received it in my box.

2. Jouer | Lip Enhancer
*Why settle for plain 'ol lip balm when you can hydrate, plump, and condition all in one go? Right, we thought so.
*This is amazing. It leaves my lips hydrated, and so soft. I am going to buy the full size asap!

3. Jurlique | Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer
*A must for any urban adventure, Jurlique's sanitizer neutralizes bacteria with Australian mint and hydrates with safflower oil.
*It smells okay, it is a minty and herb smelling hand sanitizer. I really did not notice a hydration effect with this, so it basically is a herb-y/minty smelling hand sanitizer.

4. Incoco | Nail Polish Applique
*We all have a wild side. Eye-catching nail strips are the latest trend - try them on your fingers or toes.
*I am actually impressed with these nail strips. As long as you follow the directions they are very easy to apply and I had no issues. I have had these on for a week and have not noticed a single chip, it looks like I just put them on. See below picture for my nails.

5. Extra: Birchbox Friendship Bracelet.
*Little pink string bracelet with a silver BirchBox charm. It is cute, though I don't see myself wearing it daily.


  1. The nails look good. I didn't get that in my September BB, but I saw them for sale on the site and was curious. And I liked that Jouer lip stuff too. Very moisturizing!

  2. The nails actually lasted without chipping for 2 weeks. I was really surprised. I think it is kind of worth it, but maybe just once a month or every few months. The nail strips are kind of expensive.
