Birchbox September 2012

Hello Gorgeous!
Its that time of the month again when all the subscription boxes start to roll in. Today my Birchbox arrived. So lets take a look at what I was sent this month.

- Boscia Oil Free Nightly Hydration (Size: 0.5 fl oz)
The preservative-free formula uses antioxidant-packed licorice root to gently lighten any discoloration and improve skin’s texture, plus oil-fighting silica powder and burdock root to regulate shine and combat breakouts. Rounding out the winning formula, marine algae extract helps repair damage from the sun’s rays and environmental aggravators. Full size is 1.4 fl oz and has a retail value of $36.00

- Mighty Leaf Tea in Chamomile Citrus, Vanilla Bean, & Green Tea Tropical (3 tea bags)
If you’re in the mood for something sweet, turn to the rich Vanilla Bean, a full-bodied mix of Ceylon and China black teas flavored with exotic Madagascar vanilla. For a boost of energy, try the Green Tea Tropical, an uplifting blend of exotic fruits. To unwind after a long day, brew a cup of the Chamomile Citrus, formulated with Egyptian chamomile flowers and citrus fruit. Retail value is $9.95 for 15 pouches.

- Kate Spade New York Twirl (Size: Small Vial)
This fruity floral gets its cheerful, flirty vibe from a combination of top notes of watermelon, blackberry, and red currant and a middle layer of orange blossom, jasmine, and magnolia. Musk and a dose of French macaroons balance the composition and add an undercurrent of sophistication. This smells absolutely divine!

- Birchbox & Color Club Custom Collection in Insta-This (Size: 7 mL)
Insta-This is a deep cobalt blue and I am loving this shade. It is so perfect for the upcoming seasons! Full size bottles are 15 mL and have a retail value of $8.00

- Twistband Lace Up for Fall in Purple Lace (One hair tie)
Each twistband is made of soft elastic that keeps braids, buns, and ponytails secured. Because they’re thicker than regular hair ties, they don’t leave crimps in hair. The retail value is $22.00 for a packet of 12 hair ties.

- Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Nude (Size: 0.07 fl. oz)
This mattifying tint is infused with titanium and zinc dioxides, which deflect both UVA and UVB rays. In addition, it has vitamins A, C, and E to deflect the free radicals that lead to premature aging. This has a retail value of $38.00 for the size of 1.7 oz.

Overall it was a pretty okay box. I really like the nail polish and the small perfume sample. The teas are something different which I am excited to try out. The other items aren't that appealing to myself but then again some months are absolute hits while others are misses. What did you dolls receive this month? Until next time, take care <3
