Today will be a rather quick post as I just want to share my September Birchbox with you before heading off to bed.

September marks Birchbox’s 4th birthday and to honor the occasion the boxes came in a beautiful custom design. I love the box. Can we get more custom designs please?

Birchbox - September 2014 - Avène Cleanance Soap-Free Gel Cleanser

Avène Cleanance Gel Soap-Free Cleanser

Full Size: 6.76 fl oz, $20
Sample Size: 1.69 fl oz, $5 value

I love trying new cleansers but a lot of them are too harsh for my skin. This one is sulfate-free so I hope that it’s less drying than other cleansers.

Birchbox - September 2014 - Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

Full Size: 1 fl oz, $79
Sample Size: 0.06 fl oz, $4.74 value

I previously received a larger sample of this serum in a pick-two from Birchbox. I didn’t really think it did much for my skin so I’m not sure that I will use this sample. However, this is such a tiny tube that it’s probably not worth the hassle of trying to trade it.

Birchbox - September 2014 - Davines

Davines OI – Absolute Beautifying Potion

Full Size: 4 fl oz, $41
Sample Size: 0.1 fl oz, $1.03 value

Davines OI – Absolute Beautifying Shampoo

Full Size: 9.5 fl oz, $26
Sample Size: 0.4 fl oz, $1.09 value

Davines OI – Absolute Beautifying Conditioner

Full Size: 8.5 fl oz, $32
Sample Size: 2.53 fl oz, $9.52 value

This was the pick-your-sample option I chose this month. More shampoo and conditioner! I like that this one is sulfate-free and the conditioner is a decent size to match the huge bottle of shampoo I got in June.

Birchbox - September 2014 - TEMPTU S:B Highlighter

TEMPTU S/B Highlighter

Shade: Champagne Shimmer
Full Size: 1 fl oz, $27.50
Sample Size: 0.1 fl oz, $2.75 value

I don’t use highlighter a whole lot and this one looks a bit too copper in the bottle for my taste so I’m not sure whether I will get much use out of it.

Birchbox - September 2014 - Juliette Has a Gun Anyway

Juliette Has a Gun Anyway

Full Size: 3.38 fl oz, $120
Sample Size: 0.06 fl oz, $2.13 value

I can’t decide whether I like this scent or not. It’s a bit more masculine than the scents I usually gravitate toward but not unpleasantly so.

Well, I’m not unhappy with this box but it wasn’t a very exciting one either since I had previously sampled the Caudalie serum and I probably won’t use the highlighter and the perfume. The value wasn’t too bad at just over $26 and I will definitely use the cleanser and the hair products.

  1. Avene and Caudalie?!?! CAN I GET AN AMEN?! Those are the only things I would like, and I appreciate Birchbox stepping it up brand wise. But I’m totally over these subscription services sending out perfume samples – NO. Just NO.

    Stop tempting me to get back with Birchbox :(!
