In less than one week my husband and I will be as far from the daily grind as possible and enjoying life at the happiest place on earth. Kind of like a belated honeymoon/1st anniversary celebration because I'm a big kid at heart :) (and I'm not gonna lie...I wanted to be selfish and enjoy Disneyworld sans kids one last time before we start a family #sorrynotsorry) So before we leave I wanted to get this unboxing post finished.
As always 3B Box arrived about a week after the month started, but to tell you the truth, I haven't used a single thing yet. I've been trying really hard to dive through my older samples first and they're taking a lot longer than expected to finish. But anywho, this is what subscribers received in the September 3B Box:
Heimish All Clean Balm (~1oz, value ~$4) - This was September's spoiler item. I love cleansing sherbets and balms and can never have enough of them. I like to take it traveling because technically it's a solid so it doesn't count toward the 3-1-1 liquid hand carry rule. The only drawback about this one is the scent. There's something very minty about it. I guess that's good if your sinuses are stuffed up but it's not something I look for in my cleansers. But it does smell very clean indeed.
I really wanted to like this month's bag a lot, but I'm just not thrilled with anything other than the aloe gel. I think I'd be more excited if the BB cream was a different shade or if the cleansing balm had a different scent (or better yet, unscented). I'm still debating if I want to take the balm with me to Disneyworld, but the aloe gel is definitely coming along for the ride since my skin could really use some TLC after being outdoors all day for a week!
