birchbox sept 2014

Birchbox Time! This is only my 2nd box ever, and so far, so good. There are a few products included this month that I’m interested in.


Davines Oi Oil (1.69 oz. sample bottle) : I haven’t ventured too far into the wide, wonderful world of hair oils yet, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this stuff works. I also love that this is plenty to really test the product out. It claims to “tame frizz, up shine and prevent breakage” (full size, $41.00)


Dr. Jart+ BB Black Label Detox : I was unaware that Dr. Jart+ was a Korean brand! I’m not a big fan of BB creams, but the brand is reputable and I’m liking the SPF 25. (full size, $36.00)


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (starter kit) : Ok, Ok, I’m a sucker for this kind of thing- I typically love 2 or 3 step facial programs, especially if there’s some type of tool or apparatus I’m supposed to use with it! This 2 step kit happens to include a 100% muslin cloth that you dunk in hot water to use with the scrub…interesting! (full size, $24.50)


Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in “Honey Nectar” (full size) : Here we go with the vanilla sugary MAC product smell again! This balm has a really gorgeous mauvey tint to it. It feels smooth and moisturizing, but the fat, blunt tip of the stick is kind of annoying to apply. ($8.00)


Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream (.10 oz) : What the hell is up with this tiny, tiny tube of Japanese moisturizing cream? It claims to be Japan’s “Soft Skin Secret” though, glycerin based with vitamins B2 and E. (full size, $16.00)


Davines Oi Shampoo and Conditioner (sample packets) : I’ll admit that I love getting these to toss in my gym bag. At .40 oz each, this is actually enough to wash and condition my hair with! Both the shampoo and conditioner contain Roucou oil- derived from anchiote tree seeds, grown mostly in south america. This oil contains anti-radicals and natural protectants to prevent sun damage to your hair…I want to know what these smell like!! (full size, $26.00 and $32.00)

Like the Pixi balm, love the Liz Earle and the hair oil- thanks Birchbox 🙂
