Blueridge Beauty Blogger: Happy 5th Birthday September Birchbox!!

September has been a BIG Anniversary month from Birchbox in which several lucky subscribers got prizes, including 500 Birchbox points #BIRCHBOXLOVESME !!! I was humbled to be one of the lucky subscribers to get these bonus points along along with my September Birchbox arriving on the same day!! This September box was designed by several lucky subscribers early this year by Debbie Savage, Sara Qadeer, and Angela Coppola!! As Birchbox Aces, I chose early selection for the Davines Shampoo and Conditioner to try out on my relaxed hair! Here is what's in my Birchbox:

 I enjoyed the nude pink color and feel of this lipstick which is also a lip gloss, lip primer, and liner as well. Perfect for my dry lips to wear everyday and the coming cool days in September! The darker picture shows me wearing the lipstick!!  I have quite the pink lipstick/gloss collection!

I enjoyed trying new perfumes and this one was perfect as a transitional perfume from the typical floral summer scents which I enjoyed perfumes with notes of amber and gardenia! There was a slight scent note that I was not my fave but didn't stop me from wearing this perfume either...this is my personal take and you might think its perfectly fine! No one's nose is the same!

I love trying eye creams and I have to admit I love the feel and slight scent of this eye cream but it will take at least a week to see any results of reducing dark eye circles although it was great for de-puffing my delicate undereye areas!

I am usually particular with Davines scents which can be a "Hit or Miss" for my scent preference but since one of the Birchbox ladies described it as a "laundry scent" in a good way...I had to try this out myself. My hair was re-touched with a Mizani relaxer the first weekend of September, so my hair was pretty smooth when I tried their Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. I love the scent instantly and there was at least 3- 4 uses of the shampoo left for next time! Then I used the Smooth Conditioner by smoothing then combing my hair with a wide tooth shower comb and left it in for 10 minutes before washing out!! I dried and style my hair straight with my blow dryer which felt lightly moisturize and smooth with no signs of frizz in my relaxed hair!  I would definitely try this shampoo/conditioner duo again by Davines!

I ranked this September Anniversary Birchbox "6 out of 6" since I enjoyed and used all of these products esp. the Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner that I have selected early last August! I can't wait for my next Birchbox in October!

  4. I'm a fan of Davines haircare and those two products looked great. I've heard great things about Whish products, and I would love to try their shave cream one of these days. Every item that you got seemed like a winner! Go Birchbox!

    1. I am a firm believer of using eye cream...if I had to choice of eye cream or makeup, it will always be eye cream! It will take a while to see if it clears up dark eye/lines but it feels really good!

    1. I love Whish products esp. the lavender scent body butter (really lotion consistently since butter is thicker and have to scoop it out of jar)!! I used it at night after bathing and helps me to sleep!
