This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The September 2023 Box


Along with my beauty items, I received an info card that details what items are in the box. It's fall! I'm so ready for hoodies, pumpkin patches, and warm makeup looks. I just know that Medusa got me this month!

Love Byrd Face Wash (Lavender), 2 oz – Retail Value $14.00

I find that my face is most sensitive when the weather starts getting colder. Lucky me, Medusa included a face wash product in my box this month! This gentle foaming wash uses natural ingredients: coconut oil, olive oil, and cannabis sativa oil, and is good for all skin types. My face was left feeling silky and soft. There was no weird film or dry out after use and the lavender smell was well balanced.

Sadoer Botany & Fruits Strawberry Mask – Listed Value $6.00


Medusa is making sure our face is in tip top shape this month! Our next item is a strawberry fruit sheet mask that smells just like strawberry shortcake (yum!). The directions are direct and easy to follow. After sitting with the mask on for 20 minutes, I rinsed my face and was left with hydrated and brightened skin. Did I mention how delicious this mask smells? Ahh, total spa vibes.

Medusa's Witch Lash Mascara – Retail Value $16.00


One of Medusa's best sellers has made its way into our September box. Sweet! I've received this item in the mini size previously and am so happy to have it now in a full size. This mascara is in the color El Gato Negro (the black cat) and makes lashes look long and full.

I applied the mascara to my left eye only. You can see the comparable difference in length and fullness. It looks like I have lashes on!

Medusa's Tropical Eye Shadow (Jamaica), 2 g –  Retail Value $14.00


More eye goodies coming! Our next item is a tropical matte shadow in a rich tan pigment. Medusa's baked shadows are my favorite because of how pigmented the color is. The consistency also glides on really smoothly.


This is a perfect eye shadow for fall (or any season for that matter)!

Jelly Pong Pong Liptensity Gloss (Curiosity), 4 ml – Retail Value $19.95


Ending this month's September box with this bold pink gloss by Jelly Pong Pong. This is my first introduction to Jelly Pong Pong's Liptensity line and I'm super impressed. The line boasts highly hydrating moisture, intense color, and shine.


I'm really digging this berry hue and wish my lip color was as bold as the swatch on my arm.

Bonus Item: Hair Clip – Listed Value $5.00

Medusa spoils us. How cute is this bonus hair clip? I told myself I'd be in the gym more, so now I have no hair excuses haha.

The Verdict

I just knew Medusa wouldn't let us down with the September beauty items 🙂 We got not one, but two skincare products! Both the wash and sheet mask left my face feeling hydrated and refreshed.Our eye needs were taken care of with the witchy mascara and tropical shadow. The mascara delivers a bold eye look.  The shadow can serve as a base or stand alone color. We ended our month with a glossy lip product.  The formula was highly hydrating.  I wish the color was bolder because I loved it so much.  Still, so pleased with this and all other box items this month!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You'll likely receive the October bag. Some past boxes are also available for a one-time purchase here.

Value Breakdown: I estimate I received $72.95 worth of items this month. This does not include the bonus gift. Fantastic for having only paid $22.95.
