September 2011 Birchbox

Unlike last month's Birchbox craziness, I received this month's box with no problems. Although it was slightly delayed, the Birchbox team sent me an email letting me know that it would be arriving a little late. However, given what I've seen from the box, it was definitely worth the wait.

Since this month marks the company's one-year anniversary, the theme for September is "Thanks to You!" According to the info card, the featured products are some of the Birchbox team's favorites that "represent every aspect of the Birchbox personality," ranging from girly to minimalist. This month I received:
  • Colorscience pro sunforgettable mineral powder with SPF 30 (minimalist)
  • Incoco Nail Polish Applique in a glittery gold color (adventurous)
  • Jouer Lip Enhancer (practical)
  • Truth Art Beauty Face Nourish - Birchbox Blend (crafty)
  • Birchbox Friendship Bracelet (this was my extra)
I really like the diversity of products in the box. The nail polish strips were a breeze to put on; I'll be very curious to see how they last on my nails (they are supposed to last for two weeks). I'm also looking forward to trying the other items. Look for a review at the end of the month!
