|I love looking at this familiar little box and wondering what it holds!|
|Every birchbox comes with a little postcard-like insert with a message on one side explaining that month's inspiration for the products chosen. Since this was the anniversary box, Birchbox chose a mixture of favorites and new products.|
|Here's my first peak into the September '11 box!|
|Here are all of the products including the ones in the little package! I love unwrapping that little package, it's so cute!|
Here's a look at the products individually...
|I was very excited to see this! I'm a big fan of natural products and products that don't include "junk" and I'm always on the hunt for a new face cream.|
|I was a little bummed this didn't list the ingredients, but if you're familiar with Pangea Organics you know they're generally pretty great!|
|I've been interested in trying some of the nail applique products I've seen, so when I first saw this I was pretty please! So sorry for that awful concentrated spot of light. This was folded closed and kept catching it just so!|
|Here's the inside view of the nail applique packet. The instructions seem easy enough!|
|I received this tiny Jouer lip enhancer sample. This was actually very small, maybe close in size to Too Faced's Shadow Insurance sample tubes (if you've ever purchased from them).|
|This was the "treat" that was included in my Birchbox to celebrate its 1st anniversary.|
I have really enjoyed my Birchboxes so far, so I think I had high expectations about this month's, especially because it was a special month for Birchbox. I have to say, while I like one or two of my products, I was really disappointed about this month. Not only did I only receive 4 products (usually I receive 5), two of my samples were very small (the perfume and the lip enhancer). This doesn't mean I won't stick with Birchbox to see what next month brings, but this month was my first ever let-down.
Oh well, you win some, you lose some! I can't wait to see what you all get :)
