Here’s What I Received in My September Birchbox

Birchbox: September 2014

Check out how cute this month’s Birchbox is! It’s one of the few times Birchbox has sent out a box that’s something other than their trademark pink and I am loving it! I’m guessing the box has a lot to do with it being Birchbox’s anniversary month. Speaking of which, can you believe this site has been around for FOUR years?! Over that time period I haven’t missed a box and have rarely thought of unsubscribing. That’s some pretty good longevity in an increasingly busy subscription box landscape.

Here’s what I received in my September Birchbox:

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate – I am not at all familiar with this product. The card Birchbox sends with the package says that it “enhances skin’s defensive power against signs of aging for a radiant complexion.” The product can be used both day and night and apparently goes on BEFORE serums and moisturizers. (That last part is helpful because based on the description I would have assumed this was a moisturizer that we’re not calling a moisturizer as fancy brands are wont to do.) The full-size version of this product has a retail value starting at $65, so I have my fingers crossed I don’t fall completely in love with this product. (I mean, I’d like to fall in love with it, but I cringe at the thought of regularly spending $65+ on one skincare product.)

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar ($8 retail value) – Full Size Product! While the color of this lip balm is “honey nectar,” it really didn’t provide much color. Not that I’m complaining as I don’t require much color from my balms. It does a great job of moisturizing and has a really sweet scent.


Here’s What I Received in the September PopSugar Must Have Box

I’m a little curious about what is currently happening with the PopSugar Must Have website. I received an email that they were taking it down for a few days last week and according to the site it is supposed to go back up today but so far there’s nothing. According to the email they sent last week, they were going to be adding some additional box options so I am REALLY excited to see what’s happening!

Alas, with no news yet, I thought I’d go ahead and share the contents of my super awesome September PopSugar Must Have Box and I’ll have to follow-up later with any important changes or new offerings.

Here’s what I received in the September PopSugar Must Have Box:

Tilo Scarves Modal Gradation Scarf

Tilo Scarves Modal Gradation Scarf ($125 retail value) – While I don’t deny thinking that PopSugar relies on sending out scarves a little too frequently, there is also no denying that the scarves they do send out tend to be absolutely gorgeous. This scarf might actually be my favorite of all of the ones I have received. I love the gray to “raisin” ombré. I’m certain I’m going to be wearing it plenty this fall!

Ghirardelli Minis

Ghirardelli Minis – I actually JUST saw Ghirardelli Minis in the store this past weekend and was instantly curious. I haven’t tried these yet but I’m a little concerned. Smaller squares probably means I’m just going to eat MORE of them in one sitting. ;)

Here’s What I Received in the Harper’s Bazaar Glossybox

Harper's Bazaar Glossybox

Glossybox is usually one of the last subscription boxes to show up on my doorstep each month, so I was really surprised to see that it had arrived yesterday! I just shared the sneak peek for the Harper’s Bazaar Glossybox, but now I get to share what I actually received. I usually love the Glossybox collaboration boxes and this box was no different!

Here’s what I received in the Harper’s Bazaar Glossybox:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Metallic in Authentic ($18) – Full Size Product! I am really excited to have received this particular Lip Tar! I have another OCC Lip Tar but it’s such a bright shade of pink that it’s not really wearable on a regular basis. I do think I’ll get plenty of use out of this particular color though as it is fairly neutral! While the container isn’t huge, such little product is needed that these things last forever.

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara – They’re Real Mascara from Benefit is one of my favorites, although I’ve never had a full-size tube of it! This might be the third deluxe sample I’ve received in a subscription box, but you won’t find me complaining about this or any other mascara sample! What I really love about this mascara is that it has a mini round brush at the end of the applicator that helps you apply mascara in hard-to-reach areas.
