September Birchbox

I was completely underwhelmed by this month's birchbox. Here's a picture of what I received, followed by my reviews. 

Kate Spade New York Twirl: I was actually very excited to try this, even though I don't normally like the perfume samples.  I do have a love for all things Kate Spade.  That love has ended, though, because I don't like this perfume.  I am pretty picky, though.

Hollywood Fashion Secrets/Tape: So, I'm sure this a great product and all... I just have yet to find a use for it.  I have all my pants hemmed and I don't usually have gapes in my clothing.  So, yeah.

Skin, An Apothecary Soy Body Whip:  This sounds delightful, yes?  I honestly would have no idea.  I have extremely sensitive skin (which I disclosed to Birchbox), so I cannot use this because it has fragrance. 

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint: I'm sure this is a wonderful product.  I just need way more coverage than a tinted moisturizer provides.  I layered it under my normal make-up and it felt fine, but at $38 a tube I will not be purchasing it just to layer it.

Color Cube nail polish: I really like this nail polish.  It's a pretty blue color and I will add it to my nail polish collection and use it often.

Twistband:  These must be wonderful, because they are sold out on the birchbox website.  However, they are just not my cup of tea.  I have a ton of hair and this band does a poor job of holding it all in a pony tail.  It also stretches with wear (I know this, because this is the second twistband I've received).
