Birchbox September Favorites


Over the past few years I have become much of a makeup person. Love Love Love it, so when I found Birchbox and Ipsy I was very excited. It’s been a while since I did a review, I really found some favorites in this months box so let’s begin.

First item; one of my favorites is 100% pure, Organic Coffee Been Caffeine Eye Cream. I loved the smell of this product, it’s an instant pick me up that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles ♥ Full Size, $25.

Second item; Dr. Brandt, pores no more cleanser. This cleanser provides a deep clean that leaves your skin feeling great. Birchbox prides as one of it’s best-selling face wash that minimizes pores and leaves skin clean, fresh, and velvety smooth ♥ Full Size, $35

Next item; Helmut Lang Cuiron; a modern spin on a classic leather scent perfect for both daytime and nighttime wear. ♥ Full Size $165

Next item; ModelCo; Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick-Stilleto; Love the name, I have plenty lipsticks in this shade but good to have around. It appears to be moisturizing and color stays unless I indulge on some greasiness. ♥ Full Size $20

Last item for Birchbox; Rene Furterer; Absolute Keratine Sublime Renewal Leave in Cream. Keratin rich cream that is labeled to restore and protect damage hair. I am really protective of my hair so I often do not try the hair product as I like

to stick to my regimen, however, every now and then I get some items specifically for my hair texture that I have been wanting to try.

I have received my first Ipsy bag.   I must say  I am pleased with its contents. Faves out of this December 2014; I love NYX products and I have a thing for lip balm. Also, shimmering eye shadow just in time for new years! To join Ipsy, its fairly simple  and well worth the price for the items….We will see how things hold up as time goes by.
