Birchbox September 2015 Review

Birchbox September 2015 Review

Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month.  Subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box.  The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products.

When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences.  There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose.  I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions.  This is the box for my newest account.

Here is the details about the Birchbox Point System

For every 100 points you earn, you get $10.00 to spend in the shop. There are lots of ways to earn points too!

1.  Subscribe and use the code 5BOX to get your 1st box for $5.00.

2.  Review Your Products: You get 10 points for every sample review you complete.  Each box contains 4-5 products, so that is around $5.00 in points you can earn monthly!  This makes the box $5.00 a month.  You can use this link to sign up.

3.  Shop!: For every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Store, you earn 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop.

4.  Refer Your Friends: For every friend you refer to Birchbox, you will earn 50 points

I love the colorful boxes this month.


There is always a general welcome note about that particular month.


There is an information card on the back with all the products in the box.

Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads

Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads  $3.60  These pads go under your eyes and they help combat fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.  These look just like my ToGoSpa eyes.

RUSK® Hair Care Elixir Mist

RUSK® Hair Care Elixir Mist $10.56 When I first saw this, I thought it was dry shampoo, thankfully I was wrong.  This protects your hair against the sun, heat and it helps fight frizz.

dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser

dr. brandt® pores no more® cleanser $2.50  I get so many lotions and moisturizers, I am always glad to get more cleansers.  I love dr. brandt’s line of products and this is perfect for my travel bag.

COOLA® SPF 50 Sport - Mango

COOLA® SPF 50 Sport – Mango  $3.20  While this would have been a better choice in my Jun-Aug boxes, I am still happy to get a sunscreen.  This has a spf of 50, is water-proof and has a nice mango scent, instead of coconut.  You all know I am not fond of coconut.

Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Eyeliner $1.84  I have seen this product and I am really never been tempted to try it.  I am barely talented enough to apply regular eyeliner, this is pretty tricky.


These are my swatches. I did the middle line first, then the one on the right, and my third try was the far left.  I finally got the hang of it, but I find it too tricky to apply on my eyelid.  It did have some good lasting power as it took


Final Thought: This was a pretty nice box.  The total retail value was $21.70 and I loved everything in the box but the eyeliner, which was the cheapest item!  I am really excited to get a hair product from Birchbox that isn’t dry shampoo or regular shampoo.  You can try Birchbox with this link and the code 5BOX to get your 1st box for $5.00.
