The September box was pretty cool.

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Stick in Perk-.1 oz.

Retail Value (1 oz.):  $24

I like this lip and cheek stick.  This product is simple to apply and it looks natural as a blush.  Milk Makeup makes some really cool products.

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Stick in Perk

Oribe Glaze for Beautiful Color .5 oz. &
Bonus Oribe Shampoo + Conditioner

Retail Value (5.9 oz.):  $58

I haven't tried this product yet so I can't say if I liked it or not.  This Oribe Glaze is made with watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss extracts.  It's supposed to protect against color fade but it's also good for non-color treated hair.  This got pretty good reviews on the Birchbox website so I'll definitely be using it soon.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 1 fl. oz.

Retail Value (3.3 oz.):  $25

I don't think I've ever received Liz Earle products in a beauty box before.  This cleanser removes dirt and makeup and is good for all skin types.  It's made with natural ingredients including rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter, and eucalyptus essential oil.  This product also came with a muslin cloth and a cleansing guide.

Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer-.24 oz.

Retail Value (1.7 oz.):  $32

I have so many small tubes of sunscreen right now so I wasn't that enthused about receiving more sunscreen in this box.  This sunscreen does smell great though.

Tocca Florence Eau de Parfum sample

Retail Value (.68 oz.):  $34

I also have a ton of perfume samples all over the place.  I think I've received this Tocca perfume sample in other beauty boxes.  This scent is a combination of Italian Bergamot and Crushed Violet Petals.  It smells amazing but I don't wear that much perfume since it tends to give me a headache.

My Thoughts:  This box was kind of a miss for me.  The only product I really liked was the Milk Makeup Lip and Cheek Stick.  I don't really wear perfume and I have too many perfume samples.  I also have too many tubes of sunscreen in my house.  I haven't used the Oribe Glaze or the Liz Earle products yet so I can't say how I like them.  I liked past Birchboxes better than this one.
