September 2012 Birchbox

Purchased By Me Referral Links
It's a bit late in the month but I finally got my September 2012 Birchbox and this is the most underwhelming box I've received from them. This month there were five (but really four because I don't even count that hair tie) main products in my box and two lifestyle extras.



My box included:
Fall Themed

Boscia | Purifying Cleansing Gel
Not sure I'll really use this since I'm pretty happy with my skincare routine.

Color Club | Birchbox Custom Polish in Tweet Me
Seriously the ugliest color ever, it's a green ish yellow and reminds me nothing of social media. Fail Birchbox!

Jouer | Matte Moisture Tint in Linen
I might have liked this had it been my color. Linen is the 2nd fairest shade and has yellow undertones. It feels nice on the skin and a little goes a long way but that's about all I can say about it.

Kate Spade New York | Twirl Perfume
I have a few other samples of this I like it for the most part it will be nice to take on a trip


Twistband | Hair Tie
Ummmm what?... Oh a hair tie... Great... Thanks..... No I won't be purchasing a set of 12 strings tied together for $18 dollars have you lost your mind?


Lifestyle Extra
Might Leaf Tea Company | Teas
Is it sad this is the most exciting thing in my box? I'd say the answer to that is yes...

Birchbox Digital Download
That I won't use...


So that's my Septmber 2012 Birchbox.... There were 29 box variations this month. That's about all I have to say about this box very underwhelming I think I would have rather had brush guards at least I would have some use for those!

Are you as disappointed with the September Birchbox as I am?

  1. Oh goodness, that green is BAD. I'm not really loving the whole "lifestyle extra" concept they've been adding recently. I think I'd just rather have another *good* beauty sample.

    1. I agree because it's really sad that it was the best part of the box lol

  2. I was also pretty unhappy with my Birchbox this month...it was pretty fail. I actually think you got a better box than I did! haha. I got the polish in a dark gray color called "status update". If you're interested in it at all, I'd gladly trade for the yellowy color you got...it seems more like something I might wear (or at least moreso than the one they sent me!) haha

    1. Glad it wasn't just me who thought this month was lame! I'm not interested in the polish but if you want the tweet me I'll for sure send it to you, I'm not going to get any use out of it. Let me know :)

  4. I cancelled BB this month...the boxes have just been getting TERRIBLE.

    That said, the twistband was by far my favorite thing in the box! I LOVE THOSE THINGS. They (and similar ones) are the only hair ties I will use anymore, lol.

    1. I'm thinking about that too but might wait till after the holidays.

      Really!? I guess I'll have to give it a try then the print on it was pretty cute.

  6. Wow. The tea really is the best thing in your box this month. I was pretty underwhelmed with mine and finally cancelled.

  9. I love BB but this month was the same for me. We got he same twistband, and I got a colorclub polish as well. Mine was a royal blue. I can't say I'm thrilled with the color of yours. I have gotten Jouer Tinted Moisturizers twice now, and twirl before as well. I want to see something completely new! At least with all of myglam's flaws, they do not repeat samples. Brands, but not actual products.

  10. I've had some of these products when I was a subscriber of birchbox...the color club nail polish formula is pretty good, but I agree with you on the colour...definitely not a shade I'd select from an assortment. Wonder if you could mix it with something? The jouer moisturizer was awesome, until after using it for a week...I started breaking out. Come back to glossybox :) Boscia is always good, and the tea was delicious, but the hair tie? I received that too and thought...I can knot a piece of elastic from the fabric store.

  11. I've been wondering about BirchBox but after this I'm not too sure about it ;) lol

  12. I used to get so upset about the hair ties! I thought they were pointless but who's funny is that they came in handy when you least expected them to! Hope your next box is better!

  13. If Birchbix sends me another stupid sample of stupid tea that I don't like or drink I'm going to cancel my subscription with them! #UGH P.S. I happen to like the green polish you got.

  14. Wow that green is a trip! But I think I kind of like it...might be good as a accent color on a fun mani design? I've been tempted to sign up for BB but haven't just because I already have so much makeup its a little hard to justify lol!

  15. I have been really interested in joining, after seeing your beauty goodies, I just might!

  16. i was definitely underwhelmed too. did you opt in for the goop box next month? i did, and after seeing the sneak peek I'm kinda wishing i had gone with the regular box... but oh well. i started a sample trading group with friends and we just did our first one and it was AWESOME!! i totally suggest you doing it! basically we started on the 30th and people have 2 days to post a picture and list of the samples. then after all have been posted we barter and trade! we decided to keep our all personal referrals so we can all trust each other and thus far its worked great! i traded some of my "eh" samples for some really great ones!

    also i will say it 100 times, i wish BB would NOT EVER EVER send me fragrance samples. i hate them!

    what subscription service do you like most?

    1. You know I got the email about the GOOP box but I had never heard anything about it so I wasn't that interested and forgot about it. I'm supposed to get the regular box since I didn't opt in or out.

      That sounds like a lot of fun! I usually do something similar with my sister I have a ton of stuff I've been saving up to take her since I'm going to visit her soon.

      I don't so much mind the fragrances as long as they are in that spray top bottle, I do hate hate hate the ones that are just little stoppers.

      Out of all of them I probably like LBB the most just because I also get to trade around and pick the items I get.
