Birchbox: September 2012

[Pictures to be added later]

- Mighty Leaf Tea Tea Pouches
- Birchbox/Color Club Custom Collection
- twistband Lace up for Fall
- Youngblood Mineral Primer
- Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Binding Targeted Leave-In Treatment, Daily Conditioner and Daily Shampoo
- Benefit foamingly clean facial wash
- Benefit refined finish facial polish

First and foremost, I need to state that I DID NOT receive my BBxCC Custom Collection nail polish AND the twistband in my box.  To think I did not receive two items in my box was a complete disappointment.  I sent them an email complaint, and immediately they credited me back for my box which was very generous of them.  I was, however, disappointed not to receive the nail polish of all things since I love collecting polishes.

I received 3 flavors of tea with my box and I gotta say, I didn't like any of them haha.  I drink a lot of tea, and tried a variety of flavors, different leaves, etc, but these did not taste the way I would have liked it to be.  The three flavors I had were the Green tea tropical, Vanilla bean and Citrus Chamomile.  Not surprising, my favorite was the green tea.  The tropical taste was stronger than the green tea, but it wasn't overpowering.  It added a sweetness to it, especially for such a light tea.  Vanilla bean lacked flavor and the citrus chamomile was overpowering with the citrus.

I loved the Nexxus Pro-Mend split end shampoo.  I had tried this product when my hair was at its longest (nearly 2.5ft long) and it really made my brittle/damaged hair feel really soft and tamed the frizz.  Of course it wouldnt remove split ends, but would work as a temporary fix, it still did a great job.  I was planning on purchasing this Nexxus treatment after my Aussie Moist had been used up, but since I had cut my hair I decided against it and went with something cheaper which is working for my current hair state.
