September Birchbox!

Yay, I got my September Birchbox last week! 
I know you probably can't read the little note above, but it basically says that Birchbox is celebrating it's first birthday!  This month's box is filled with products that "represent every aspect of the Birchbox personality".  I'm loving the Birchbox friendship bracelet, it's super cute and simple and it's a nice addition to the box that every Birchbox girl will have.  I think the Birchbox team have done a great job marketing their brand, and the products I've gotten each month really fit what I like, they actually use that quiz you first take when you sign-up!

Anyway, now on to the products...
The first product is Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Firm and Life Cream.  The full size retails for $70, so I'm really happy I get to try this product out in a sample size.  The botanical ingredients target dullness, which I think will be great when the weather starts to get cold and dry...which tends to dull skin quickly.  I'm also loving these Incoco Nail Polish Applique in cheetah print.  The picture below is a close up, I LOVE this print and it has glitter in it, which is obvz a huge plus for me as well.  The Sally Hansen nail polish strips work great, so I'm excited to try a different brand to see if they work just as well!

The next product is a mineral foundation with SPF 30, by ColorScience.  I'm gonna try to use this sample ASAP because I typically only use liquid foundations in the cooler months to keep my skin hydrated.  The last product is Salvatore Ferragamo's Attimo L'Eau Florale.  This is a very floral scent, which automatically makes me love it.  I think I may end up buying this in full size, it's light and classic.  You can tell there's a lot of different notes of florals, but they blend together perfectly.  It's super feminine and I think would work best for going out at night.  When I tried it for the first time I literally kept sniffing my hand, I just loved it so much.  And, major plus, I put it on before I started my day of classes, and it lasted for such a long time, I was really impressed.
If you haven't signed up for Birchbox and are interested, click here!  Even if you want to try it for just 1 month, I highly suggest it!
