Another month, another BIRCHBOX FRANCE came knocking on my door (figuratively). September had been greatly awaited by me and I can feel the beginning of the autumn. Just tonight we had one of the most epic storms I have ever seen and it was glorious. So is this month’s Birchbox by the way since it contains some pretty cool stuff.
First of let’s start with the inspiration behind this September’s Birchbox. With a big, bright sign saying “Kiss a.k.a Keep it simple, smile” this month’s box looks super fun and interesting. The Kiss box is in collaboration with Lisa Gachet – the creator of Wear Lemonade which is a modern twist on a fashion site. It was intriguing to see the process they went through from making the pattern of the box to choosing the products and you can check it out in this video (in french).
1. THE SCARF by Wear Lemonade – Birchbox presented us with a bit of a different item this time – a beautiful and colourful scarf. It is a part of Lisa’s collection. The pretty colours and the interesting motive gave me a vintage feeling, maybe because of the dots. I like how they give you an idea of how to wear it.
Size: Format: 90 cm x 90 cm – Value: 20 €
2. PEONY by Wear Lemonade – This limited addition lipstick comes in three colours – India, Maria and Simona. I got the last one which is a lovely dusty rose colour. The lipstick is very creamy and has a nice pigmentation. The formula contains grape seeds and vitamin E, that moisturize and keeps the lips from feeling dry. Peony is 100% vegan and cruelty free. Unfortunately the colour of the lipstick does not look that good on me, but I really like the formula.

3. CODAGE – Creme Gommante – I enjoyed using this scrubbing cream due to the perfect combination of the little particles of rice grains mixed with Shea butter. It was a pleasant experience that left my face feeling cleansed and well exfoliated. The scrub was right up my alley, because it claimed to cleanse and stimulates the skin tone and activate cell renewal. My skin definitely felt amazing, so I am considering buying the full size even though it is a bit pricey.
Contents: 50 ml Price: 39 Euro
4. INSTITUT ARNAUD – YOUTHFUL RADIANCE DAY CREAM SPF5 – Fighting against aging with an added firming effect this day cream seemed amazing. Plus the smell of it is just so luxuries to me. The sample comes in a beautiful, frosted glass jar. The formula contains antioxidant grape seed oil, which work towards giving flexibility to the skin. The light SPF protects against UV rays. And with the addition of hyaluronic acid which helps with cellular production. I loved using it, but to be honest at this point anti-aging is not my priority and I could not test the full powers of this product.
Contents: 50ml Price: 30, 60 Euro
RENÈ FURTERER – ABSOLUE KÈRATINE ULTIMATE RENEWAL MASK – This one is not a new product for me. I have used and loved the Rene Furterer brand for quite some time and I love it. They never disappoint and did not do it now. The mask is perfect for damaged by the sun or by colouring hair. It is rich in keratin, which nourishes the hair, leaving it easy to untangle and full of shine. I am not surprised that is already out of stock on the site. It really does work amazingly.

What a great box the BIRCHBOX for September was. The only flaw for me was the lipstick but only because the colour simply does not work for me.
