I am always super excited to receive my Birchbox every month! Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that focuses on beauty, skin care, hair care and lifestyle items.. For $10 a month, you will receive 5 or more items delivered right to your doorstep! When you sign up, you can fill out your beauty profile, so your box is filled with items specific to your likes.. You can change your profile at anytime, so you always get products you would be interested in..

They have a really sweet rewards system, too.. You can gain “Birchbox points” in quite a few ways, and the points stack up really fast.. You get 10 Birchbox points per item you review from your monthly box, 50 points for referring a friend, and 1 point per dollar spent in their online shop.. Once you reach 100 points, you can redeem them in their online shop for full sized items.. 100 Birchbox points equals $10 to shop!

Birchbox has a different theme each month.. The past few months, they have been offering a “sample choice” option. Subscribers get to choose from four different samples to be included as one of their items, OR the month’s curated box. This month, I decided to try out their curated box.

Each Birchbox comes with this handy little card that tells you all about everything that came in your box that month! It gives you information on what each item is for, how to use them, and how much full sizes retail for..

Now for the good stuff.. Let’s see what I got!!

Macadamia Professional Flawless Cleansing Conditioner

Deluxe Sample

This multipurpose, no-suds formula cleanses and softens hair, plus cuts blow-dry time. All you do is work it through wet hair in place of shampoo and conditioner, wait 1-5 minutes, then rinse! After that, all that’s left is love. This is one of my new favorite things. It’s borderline obsessive!

Retail value for this 3oz size is $12.29!

Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara

Deluxe Sample

This makeup artist-designed, water-resistant formula lengthens, volumizes, and curls your lashes. This mascara is said to last all day. If it did, I didn’t even notice. In my humble opinion, it doesn’t have enough coverage. But then again, I prefer a lot of WOW to my lashes.

Retail value for this 0.2 oz size is $14.20!

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Silver Eyeliner

Deluxe Sample

This is a luxe, creamy liner from the NYC-based designer for smudge-proof, all-day wear. You can glide it along your lash line for a defined look, or blend it within 30 seconds for a smokey eye with a dash of shimmer. I love this eyeliner! I was hesitant about the color, but it can be very subtle and I love how versatile it is. Pleasant surprise!

Retail value for this 0.03 oz size is $12!

dr. brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner

Deluxe Sample

This award-winning gel degunks pores for fewer blackheads and spotlight-ready smooth skin. Apply a thin layer to area’s of concern two or three times a week, and rinse after 5-10 minutes. I haven’t seen any obvious changes since using this, but it’s interesting to watch it turn blue….

Retail value for this 0.25 oz size is $11.25!

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion

Deluxe Sample

This Spanish cream hydrates and softens with olive oil and avocado. This has such a spectacular combination of scents! I was really happy to see this in my box, and I’m even happier after seeing how soothing and hydrating it is on.

Retail value for this 30 mL size is $2.89

The final retail value of my September Birchbox + Fashionista box comes to a whopping $52.63! That is more than 5 times the cost of the box! I was VERY pleased with my box this month, and am really enjoying their new sample choice option.
