September Birchbox: Heritage
This month saw the inclusion of some exclusive to Birchbox nail polishes created by Ruffian, a New York based fashion label. This is their first nail lacquer collection, and the three colors that were sent out were a purple, red, or a green. I was hoping for the metallic olive green Hedge Fund and that's what I received :-) This is a full size bottle worth $10.
four-in-one primer, moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum with
brightening properties and anti-aging benefits. It blends out nicely and while it does not provide enough coverage for me on it's own, I'll use it under my foundation for it's sunscreen and anti-aging benefits. I like that it has an SPF of 45 but did not feel or look greasy. Sample value is $4.87.
The Dr. Lipp original nipple balm for lips features purified or medical grade lanolin and is an all purpose balm that replenishes and seals in moisture. This is the kind of lip balm I like to use before going to bed at
Last up is Eyeko's Black Magic mascara, with a paraben-free formula featuring keratin and shea butter and a water resistant finish. I've worn this once so far and liked it! It reminded me a bit of a tubing mascara in how it looked when I washed it off, so I'm wondering if there are similarities in formula. It did not clump or smudge and the color was a nice glossy black. Sample value is about $11.
These are all items I'll use and the total box value is $34.97, well worth the $10 I spent. Happy Anniversary Birchbox!
