Sept Birchbox

September’s Birchbox is here and this month they’re celebrating their subscribers.  Take a look at what was included in my box.

Sept BB

L’Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc Eau de Toilette 

Described as having notes of blackberry, rich musk and wood, this sample perfume smells like men’s cologne and I don’t like it at all.  The blackberry and musk scent combination doesn’t mesh well with me.  Sorry to say but I will be discarding this immediately.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil

The sample choices this month were between Pop Beauty Eyeshadow Trio, Davine’s LoveShampoo and packet conditoner and Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil. I picked the eyebrow pencil as I needed one and I’m already a fan of the powder duo.  Personally, I prefer powder over pencil because I feel it gives a softer effect but this will do for now. I can always blend it out. 🙂

TOCCA Esfoliante de Corpo in Bianca 

I’m happy this sugar based body exfoliant was included since it  has two of my favorite scents: lemon and green tea.  I tried a little bit on my hands and the word luxurious came to mind.  Seriously a must try for the cooler months ahead as it leaves skin feeling hydrated and silky. *Note: Sensitive skin should tread with caution as it is fragrant.

treStiQue Correct & Cover Concealer Crayon in Bisque

I haven’t tried this concealer yet but I love the packaging.  The top portion is the cap, shaped like the tip of the concealer-how cute is that.  I’m a little nervous testing this because it’s infused with coconut oil and I’m worried it may be too heavy for the eye area.  We’ll see.

Rene Furterer Absolue Keratine Sublime Renewal Leave-in Cream

This “keratin-rich cream smoothes, restores, and protects even the most damaged strands.”  It’s heavily fragranced but I don’t find it overpowering.  It is a rich, heavy cream that feels soft  but I need more time to really see if it makes a difference.  Having curly, color treated hair, I feel I am a perfect candidate. Stay tuned for a review.

Tocca

Overall, it was a good box and although I won’t be using the fragrance sample, the Tocca exfoliant made it worth it.
