September 2012 Birchbox

Hey everybody! Today's post is an unboxing of my September 2012 birchbox. I know it's late, but Birchbox doesn't ship to military addresses, so my lovely grandma sends them over! 

Here's an overview of what I got this month. 

The theme for this box is fall fashion and trends. In fact, Birchbox even included a mini look-book to provide inspiration for this season's trends. 

Here's the handy list included with every box, detailing each item. 

First up, we have the Nexus sample combo. It is a trial size of the Pro-Mend Split End Treatment System, and includes the shampoo, conditioner, and leave in treatment. I really enjoy how it comes with the whole system, because it always irks me when samples say "This product works best with our entire line...". Now I can try out the entire system! 

 Next up we have the Benefit Cosmetics facial wash and exfoliating combo. I've heard great things about the Benefit skincare line and am happy to give this a try! 

The first product on the left is the Youngblood mineral primer. It's to be used on the face prior to foundation or other face products. I have combination skin, so a product to help my makeup stay on all day is a welcome sight. 
The item in the middle is the Color Club nail polish in Status Update. It's a gorgeous mid-toned gray color, perfect for the fall time. I've received a Color Club polish before, and was impressed with the opacity and lasting power. 
The product on the very right is a twist band hair tie. These hair ties are phenomenal, and I have previously purchased a pack of 12, and I'm happy to add another to my collection. 

My lifestyle extra is the Mighty Leaf tea bags in Green Tea Tropical, Vanilla Bean, and Chamomile Citrus. I'm currently sipping on the Chamomile flavor, and I'm in love! It's a perfect night-time unwinding tea, and I enjoy how the bags contain whole leaves and flower, it's not all ground up. I'm excited to try out the other two! 

I hope you enjoyed!

Song of the Day: Everything Counts by Depeche Mode 
Interesting fact, I woke up today with this song's chorus playing in my head. I think it was the background music in my dream!
