12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment
Full Size Price: $22.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.12
This is a leave-in conditioning spray that claims to detangle, protect, and heal strands. It carries a refreshing and light scent that is on the sweet side, I found that it does linger on the hair for a bit after use. The formula itself is on the thinner side and easily applies without weighing down my hair. Overall, I enjoyed the product and would consider purchasing the full size.


Pixi by Petra LipLift Max in shade "Sheer Rose"
Full Size Price: $14.00
Sample size value is approximately: $6.30
This is a plumping sheer gloss that can be worn alone or on top of an existing lip color. It contains aloe, jojoba, and chamomile to provide moisture to your lips. I found that it carried a minty scent that did tingle slightly after being applied. The color I received has a slight nude tint to it but when applied it matches my natural lip color quite well so it appears mostly just like a clear gloss when used alone. I did enjoy the product and think it would work well on top of a lip color. I don't think I'd purchase the full size since I don't wear lip gloss too often.


M-A-C Cosmetics Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara
Full Size Price: $23.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.53
This is a 3D black mascara that claims to be clump free. It is made to lengthen, condition, and define every lash. I enjoyed the brush as it made application quite easy. The formula itself was quite smooth and did not clump up when I used it. I was able to achieve the look I prefer in just two coats. Overall, I really enjoyed it and will be purchasing the full size.


Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer
Full Size Price: $39.00
Sample size value is approximately: $9.75
This is a pore minimizing primer that claims to give your skin a real life filter that will minimize the appearance of pores, absorb any excess oil, and extend the wear of your foundation. The formula itself is lightweight and blends easily on the skin. I found that it did make my foundation look smooth and it helped it stay in place all day long. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


STARSKIN 7-Second Morning Mask 7-in-1 Miracle Skin Mask Pads
Full Size Price: $30.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.50
This is a double-sided pad that is made to brighten and exfoliate on one side, and hydrate, protect, and prime pre-makeup on the other side. I found that the pad was very well saturated and thanks to having the small insert to place you fingers in, gives more overall control of using it and giving more direct application. It gave a gentle exfoliation that didn't irritate my skin in any way. The other side did give a light refreshing feel to it but the formula takes quite a while to fully set and dry. I feel with a product like this, you will need to use it for a longer period of time to really know how well it works for you. I enjoyed the sample enough to want to try the full pack.


My September Birchbox is valued at $24.20.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so this gives me an additional value of $14.20.


Overall, I was quite pleased with this month's box and feel it is continuing to show improvement with my sample options. My favorite product from this month's box is the mascara.
