Birchbox Reviews - September & October

Between vacation, work, life, etc. I just haven't had a chance to write a review on my September Birchbox before my October box arrived :(
So today you are getting 2 for the price of 1!

My September box is all about...


Since Birchbox is celebrating their 3 year anniversary,
they decided to revisit some of their favorite products from the past few years.
I received the following items in my box...

Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Fox Hunt (full size $10).
This is the perfect nail color for Fall!

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Monaco (full size $20).
This is actually a very sheer gloss with just a hint of pink.

Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hair Spray (full size $25).
This is very flexible spray. Nice, but no hold at all :(

Keratherapy Daily Smoothing Cream (full size $23).
I have used this cream a few times now, but I haven't noticed any difference after blow drying my hair.

Grand Central Beauty S.M.A.R.T. Skin-Perfecting Polisher (full size $38).
I have tried this polish a couple times now it is very light, but an effective way to exfoliate your face.

My October box arrived within days of returning from vacation. At first glance I will say this is my most disappointing box yet :(
The theme is...

Beauty Buzz

Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo (full size $21.95)
Beauty Protector Protect & Condition (full size $21.95)
Since I color my hair I don't try non-color shampoo and conditioner. These will be handed off unfortunately :(

Evologie Stay Clear Cream (full size $62)
I absolutely love this cream! I have used it in the morning and evening since I received my box and it is great!
I have noticed a big difference in my skin :)

theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen (full size $17)
Plain and simple, not for me :(
Way too reddish pink for me. I am a gloss/chapstick girl.

Chapstick hydration lock in Vanilla Creme (no cost included)
This is the first product from Birchbox that I knew I would love before I even tried it! I am a Chapstick girl through and through! I rarely wear lipstick or gloss.
I ALWAYS have at least one Chapstick with me at all times!
Usually cherry, but this new Vanilla Creme one is pretty nice too!
