My September Birchbox ~ Unwrapped

Hi lovelies!  I'm so excited, it's the time of the month where my subscription boxes come in and I'm inundated with so many fun, new beauty products to try!  I just received by Birchbox yesterday, as usual it's the first one :-)  If you're not familiar, subscribe to Birchbox for only $10 a month and get handpicked beauty and lifestyle samples delivered to your door free!  {Click to see what I got!}

This month's theme was 'Heritage', and it's also Birchbox's 3-year anniversary!  While I was hoping for something more, I certainly wasn't disappointed either.  As you can see, there sure are some fun products that they matched to my likes/needs very well!

VOESH New York | Green Tea Pedicure Scrub
This was this month's 'beauty extra', and I really like it!  I love taking time to myself every week or two (or three) and giving myself a pedi, so this will be really nice to keep my feet even prettier and softer :)

Caudalie | Hand and Nail Cream
Quite possibly my favorite thing in the box, this luxurious cream smells fabulous and leaves my hands so soft it's ridiculous.  Absolutely love this, and it's earned a permanent spot in my new Phillip Lim for Target bag ;-)

Curly Hair Solutions | Curl Keeper
I love the recyclable packaging, it's fab.  I'm always looking for that new 'miracle product' that will tame my frizz but not sacrifice my curls.  I'm really hoping this lives up to its promise!  I do also like that it is water based rather than alcohol based, so it won't further dry out my hair and will hydrate it without leaving a build up of product.

Ruffian | Nail Lacquer - Hedge Fund
Perhaps the most hyped about item in the box, I think we all were looking forward to trying out these new, exclusive colors!  I love the color I got, I first thought it could be a possible dupe for Sephora by OPI's 'Leaf Him at the Altar', but 'Hedge Fund' is more bright golden than the shimmer for 'Leaf Him at the Altar'.  Love this color and I know I'll be wearing a lot of it over the cooler months.

Benefit Cosmetics | Sugarbomb Ulta Plush Lip Gloss
Another absolute favorite has got to be this non-gloss lip gloss.  It's formula is perfection; it's not sticky, it glides on and wears well, and it smells absolutely delectably fruity.  Besides, its shimmering pinky nude color is flattering on everyone.

I really do love this month's box and have loved the products I've tried so far; I'm pretty this is one of my fave boxes so far (in the 2 yrs 7 mos I've been a subscriber!)  What was in your Birchbox?
