This is my husband's September 2011 Birchbox shipment. I've made a separate post for my September 2011 Birchbox Shipment, which you can view by clicking here.
I have to say, his September shipment is WAY better than mine. His value is almost double what mine was. His box is a "normal" shipment, unlike my box and many others whose box value was between $9 and $13.

Now I'll break it down, product-by-product...
INCOCO Nail Polish Applique
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: We all have a wild side. Nail strips are the latest trend -- try them on your fingers or toes.
- MY THOUGHTS: I'm a lover of all things nail related, so of course I was excited to get these nail strips. I had gotten nail strips in my Birchbox shipment that were Leopard Print, but I think I like this design even better!
- FULL SIZE: 16 strips @ $7.99
- SIZE I RECEIVED: 12 strips
- VALUE: $6.00
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Who has time for a multi-step AM routine? A mineral sunscreen that evens and mattifies skin means more time for coffee -- plus it lasts all day.
- MY THOUGHTS: I was very happy to receive this product because I'm currently in a mineral powder foundation phase... even though I'm typically a liquid foundation type of gal. I haven't tried it out just yet but I plan to try it out pretty soon.
- FULL SIZE: 0.21 oz @ $28
- SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.05 oz
- VALUE: $6.67
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Why settle for plain 'ol lip balm when you can hydrate, plump, and condition all in one go? Right, we thought so.
- MY THOUGHTS: I received this same lip treatment in my Birchbox shipment, but now I have two. Yay! I gave it a test drive and I can say my lips felt super soft, but the smell and taste where grandma-ish.
- FULL SIZE: 0.33 fl oz @ $14
- SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.07 fl oz
- VALUE: $2.97
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: Get ahead of the anti-aging game. Jurlique's luxurious moisturizer spurs collagen production and new cells to keep skin healthy and youthful.
- MY THOUGHTS: My husband already claimed this product because I had questioned adding to my skin care routine. I'd love to try it though, so maybe I could share with him :)
- FULL SIZE: 1.7 oz @ $70
- SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.17 oz
- VALUE: $7.00
SALVATORE FERRAGAMO Attimo L'Eau Florale
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: The designer's latest scent taps into our sophisticated side with delicate peony and jasmine.
- MY THOUGHTS: Again, if you don't know by now, I'm not a fragrance gal. Today I have a headache so I'm not even going to attempt to smell it.
- FULL SIZE: 3.4 fl oz @ $85
- SIZE I RECEIVED: 0.05 fl oz
- VALUE: $1.25
- DESCRIPTION ON INFO CARD: It's been a year! and we couldn't have done it without you (thank you.). Wear this friendship bracelet as a reminder that there is beauty in discovery, and delight in anticipation. Here's to many more beauty-filled months.
- MY THOUGHTS: Obviously my husband is not going to wear this bracelet, so now that I have two I might wear one occasionally. I don't tend to wear a lot of jewelry anyway, but this bracelet is cute. Nothing super special, but certainly is dainty and girly looking.
