September 2015 Birchbox

My Birchbox took FOREVER to get out to me this month!

Mama is impatient and the anticipation and curiosity was killing me.  🙂

Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products and very little makeup.

This month’s theme is: You’re Beautiful

The box this month is absolutely gorgeous!

I think it’s a beautiful reminder that each and every one of you is beautiful!

You don’t need makeup, fancy clothes, perfect hair etc. to be beautiful.  Just being YOU and being happy is more than enough!

Amika The Shield Style Extending Spray Sample: Full Size=$24

Heat-activated formula that protects against frizz, pollution, UV rays, and extreme heat.

I’ve been hearing a lot about Amika and am really excited to try this product out.

I am all about protecting my hair from frizz, pollution, UV rays and heat, but always love the fact that this could extend my hairstyle.

POP Beauty POP Portfolio Eyeshadow Trio Sample in “Sugar Plum”: Full Size=$26

A trifecta of long-wearing, blendable eyeshadows in bold, pigmented purples.

Normally I don’t like wearing purple eyeshadow (even though it’s supposed to make brown eyes stand out more!)

But, I think this trio is absolutely perfect for the Fall!

Plus, this is a great way for me to step out of my comfort zone and my neutral eyeshadow rut and try something different!

Etat Libre d’Orange Remarkable People Sample:  Full Size=$85-149 (YIKES!!!)


An intriguing new scent with notes of fruit, spice, florals and champagne.

You guys know I’m really sensitive to fragrances so this will be immediately passed on to a friend or family member.

The packaging is pretty cool though!

TOCCA Esfoliante da Corpo-Giulietta Sample: Full Size=$32

This sugar-based formula also has crushed olive granules, gently exfoliating for a supple effect.

The scent of this is pretty subtle.  It has that “luxurious spa” scent to it which is so yummy!

I can’t wait to see how this works.  I’m hoping is really is a gentle exfoliator.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil Sample in “Medium Brown”: Full Size=$23


An easy-to-use tool to help fill in and naturally shade unruly brows.

Believe it or not, I have not tried a Anastasia brow product!  Crazy I know!

Even though this is a small sample, at least I can get a few uses out of it and see how I feel about it.

I’m pretty happy with what I received this month.

I’m super excited that I received two makeup products!!!  That so rarely happens!

The stand out products for me are the Anastasia brow pencil, the POP Beauty eyeshadow trio and the TOCCA body scrub.

What did you get in your box this month?  Has anyone had any experience with any of these products?  Let me know!

        No, I don’t have any subscriptions. Birchbox sounds pretty affordable, so I’m going to ask my husband for it for Christmas.

    Yay it finally arrived! So happy to see you got a Tocca exfoliator. I think you’ll love it! Lucky you got an Amika hair product. I’ve been hearing a lot about the brand too. 🙂
