September Birchbox

How exciting!  My September Birchbox has arrived!
This month I was really happy with the surprises inside.
dr. brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner  ($11.25)
I’m still not sure what to think of this.  I had trouble spreading it well and the film was thinner than I expected.  It did tingle and sort of turn blue but I’m not convinced my pores are deep cleaned.  I will use up the sample and see if I notice a difference over time.

Noir Cosmetics Long-Wear Eyeliner in Black  ($15.00)
Not sure if I’m going to try this one or pass it along.  As you know, I don’t wear make up and when I do I’m not a fan of smudge proof stuff.  Oh yeah, and I think black is too harsh and prefer grey.
RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer in RUFFIAN NAKED  ($10.00) and Remover Towelette  ($1.20)
Nude, hmmmm, kind of a cool concept.  At first I really liked it, like reinventing the clear coat.  But after two coats I wasn’t so impressed.  It looks a little tawny and definitely looks better from a distance but you be the judge. (Just don’t judge my shitty paint job!!)
The remover was way cool!!  A very chic black cloth and a masculine scent that totally revolutionized removing nail polish.  The towelette was enough for both hands and my nails were left smooth, clean, and smelling scrumptious.  
Suki exfoliating foaming cleaner  ($1.65)
A super great foaming sugar scrub with the most fresh orange scent.  It felt like breakfast although the granules are a little more coarse than I prefer.  The result was refreshing!
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream  ($1.28)

Interesting both in texture and result.  It looked and smelled like Vicks Vaporub but my skin feels very nice,  I tried it on the back of my hands since they always seem extra dry and though they don’t look like I’m 13 again, they certainly feel more hydrated.  

Total value:  $40.38  Hot Dang!!  Great box and a super great value!!
