September Birchbox Review

I was so busy last month that I almost forgot to do my Birchbox review!  This was a good one to review because it was had a lot of products I have been dying to try.  Want to learn what I loved?  Read on!

Oribe Glaze for Beautiful Color | Birchbox $58:  I used to think that high-end haircare was a waste of money.  That was before I met my wonderful hair stylist, Luisa.  She taught me how to take care of my hair and now I know what it means to take care of your hair.  I LOVE this brand.  I use their texturizing spray on a regular basis and it smells wonderful.   This is a fancy conditioner that makes your hair silky soft after you’re done using it.  It reminds me of those conditioners you get after dying your hair in a box.  It has the same scent as the texturizing spray.  Great if you have color-treated hair!

Milk Makeup Lip+Cheek | Birchbox $24:  I have been interested in this new brand, so I was very excited to see it in my box this past month!  I actually thought that I wasn’t going to like this, but I LOVE it!  It’s great on your cheeks and it looks good on your lips.  On my lips, it’s a light coral pink . On my cheeks, it gives a really pretty coral glow.  I have to say that this definitely surprised me.  I am going to up to SF this week for work and this is definitely coming in my travel bag!

TOCCA Travel Fragrance Spray – Florence | Birchbox $34:  I love TOCCA soaps.  They smell AMAZING!  So how do their fragrances fair in comparison to the lovely smells of their soaps?  Ah-mazing!  It is very difficult for me to find fragrances that don’t smell musty on me.  This is a winner!  Maybe my new Fall scent?

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser | Birchbox $25:  I have been wanting to try this for the longest time!  It’s world-renowned and won over 100 beauty awards.  I have been using this every night for the past week.  I don’t know if I am using it wrong or what, but I don’t get it.  The cleanser smells like eucalyptus which reminds me of my Malin+Goetz deodorant and the cloth is like the face cloth I use to wash my face.  Am I missing something that everyone else is getting out there?  I know this is great for sensitive skin which is a plus in my book, but my skin didn’t feel exceptionally better.  Let me know if you have other experiences with this, I want to love this stuff!

COOLA Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer | Birchbox $32:  I have received a few COOLA items in my past boxes and and I’m not mad about that.  When I traveled to Utah and Las Vegas for work last month, I threw this in my travel bag and used it everyday. It’s lightweight and smells lovely.  Win win!

Out of everything I received, I really liked the TOCCA Fragrance, MILK Lip+Cheek Stick and the Oribe Glaze.  Everything else was just okay but I was happy to try them all out.  Glad I didn’t spend the money on the full size without knowing if I would like the product.  That’s why I love Birchbox, you can try things out that you may not normally purchase.  If you want to sign up for your own box for $10 a month click on this link!  Also, if you travel a lot for work like me, you will appreciate all the deluxe travel sizes that are TSA approved!
