September 2014 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Wednesday, September 17, 2014
My September Birchbox arrived a few days ago, and I have to say, Birchbox really hit it out of the park this month. This box was a grand slam! I was excited to see a few items in this month's box that my sister has gotten in the past in her Birchboxes.

Here's what I received in my September 2014 Birchbox (in no particular order):

1. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit (Received a sample. Full size, $24.50)
Uses a two-step ritual to purify and exfoliate.
My thoughts: It took me a few times to get used to the fact that no water is used when using this product. The cloth is used to remove the polish rather than washing it off. For some reason, I still had an incredible urge to rinse my face. 

2. Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar (Received a full size, $8)
Dual-purpose lip balm that hydrates while giving lips a pretty hint of color.
My thoughts: I'm into a natural lip these days, and this lip balm was the perfect way to achieve that. I've become a big fan.

3. Dr. Jart+ BB Black Label Detox (Received a sample. Full size, $36)
The Korean brand's tinted cream brightens, blocks UV rays, and calms blemish-prone skin.
My thoughts: I absolutely loved this for my peri menopausal skin which has been incredibly temperamental lately. This is calming and helps reduce redness as well.

4. Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream (Received a sample. Full size, $16)
This all-over hydrator tackles the driest skin from rough heels to chapped lips.
My thoughts: I used this on my feet, which are pretty beat up after a summer spent in flip flops and sandals. It works great, and you need only apply a small amount.

5. Davines Oi Oil Anti-Frizz Hair Serum (Received a sample. Full size, $41)
Lightweight, anti-oxidant-rich serum tames frizz, adds shine, and prevents breakage.
My thoughts: I can't speak for how it controls frizz since the weather conditions were idea the days I used this, but it did add a nice sheen to my hair. As a bonus Birchbox sent samples of Davines shampoo and conditioner, but I haven't tried them yet.
