I need to get better at posting these the month I receive them! Here is my September Birch Box:
My box contained:
– Kate Spade New York Twirl sampler
– Twistband hair tie
– Tili small bag
– WEI to Go Sleep Over Kit: Clean and Ideal Skin
– 21 drops Aromatherapy Blends in Focus
– Birchbox and Color Club Custom Collection Nailpolish in Status Update
I think my favorite part of the box was the Twistband hair tie. I had heard about them before, but wasn’t about to spend $18 for 12, so it was nice to have one to try. I love them! But I still didn’t want to spend $18, so a quick pinterest search brought me to Lil Blue Boo who had a tutorial on making them! For $6, I got 10 yards of brown fold over elastic (FOE), and made a bunch of work-appropriate colored Twistband knock-offs. Now I think I know what I will be giving out for Christmas!
The perfume sample was ok. Honestly, I’m tired of perfume samples – I have way too many perfumes already, and my new motto is that I can’t buy a new one until I use up one! The Tili bag was pretty, but I found it useless because I carry my makeup around in make up bags. I’m still on the fence about the 21 drops Aromatherapy Blend. It smells nice, but it doesn’t last very long. I do think it will be good for when I’m studying for the Florida Bar, because I will definitely be needing help focusing on studying for 2 1/2 months straight!
The nail polish is ok. I’m not ready to give up my bright summer nail polish (and since I live in Florida, I don’t have to ever really give it up), but I’ll try it soon. It’s just very dark. I have not tried the WEI to Go Sleep Over Kit, mostly because I have an awesome Origins Checks and Balances face wash that I love. However, I will probably bring it up to Chicago next time I visit.
I’m hoping next month is a better box. If you want to join Birchbox, click here!
