Birchbox Fresh Paint September 2014

Birchbox’s September theme is Fresh Paint and transitioning to fall colors. It’s Birchbox’s anniversary month so they made us a special colorful box as a keepsake.


They also sent an email previously to reserve a sample of choice or a box with select items that are revealed for those who want to know what they’re getting. I picked the Macadamia Professional Healing Oil Spray for my reserved sample.


There were a few extra inserts in this box.


There was a surprise Birchbox find item inside! 🙂 I love these! It’s a Chapstick Hydration Lock 2 sided lip balm. One end moisturizes while the other renews. I took it out on a night out and it kept my lips soft and moisturized all night! It’s got a cute package and label as well. This sells for $9.99 on Amazon.


I’m excited about getting Acure Organics Day Cream Gotu Kola Stem Cell + 1% Chlorella Growth Factor, full size is $18.99. I love organic skincare products. “Made with gotu kola stem cells, this antiaging moisturizer firms and protects skin. Smooth onto clean, dry face, neck, and chest”. The full size is only 1.7 oz, and I received a 1 oz sample which seems generous! Retail value $12.66.


Harvey Prince Ageless Liquid Loofah, full size is $22. This .5 oz is valued at .92. The tube is adorable, and it actully smells very fruity and refreshing. “Infused with a grapefruit-vanilla fragrance, this wash hydrates and softens skin. Work into a lather and massage over skin. Breathe in the youthful scent, then rinse clean”.


Macadamia Professional Healing Oil Spray, full size $14.50-29.50. The 2oz sample included sells for $14.50. I have been dying to try this brand’s line of products and can’t wait to try this out! “Lightweight, quick-absorbing formula that combats frizz, boosts shine, and blocks UV rays. Hold 8 inches frmo clean, damp, or dry hair and spritz evenly. Style as usual”.


Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel. Full size $48, you can buy this 5ml trial size for $5.75 on their website. For my sensitive skin it recommends doing a peel once every ten days, so the sample should last long enough to see how I like it. “The acid-free peel gently exfoliates for instantly softer, smoother, brighter skin. Apply to clean face and massage to slough off dull, dry skin. Rinse away.”


TEMPTU S/B Highlighter in Champagne Shimmer. Full size $27.50, so this samples value is $2.75. This is an interesting highlighter shade that should look great for fall and winter. “Liquid shimmer that illuminates and contours your complexion or gives an all-over glow. Dab and blend on apples of cheeks, brow bones, Cupid’s bow, or anywhere else you’d like”.


The total retail value of this box is a huge $46.57, and the box only cost me $10!! I am completely wow’ed and very happy with everything in my box too. 🙂 The items I’m super excited about are the Dual ended Chapstick, Acure Organics Day Cream, and Macadamia Healing Oil Spray. The other items are exciting too, but I had to pick favorites lol. Thanks for reading, it means the world to me!
