The theme for this year’s August Birchbox is Endless Summer. The box was shipped out in the beginning of month and delivered at my door stop this past weekend. For those unfamiliar with Birchbox, it is a monthly beauty subscription. You pay $10 a month and receive a set of diverse beauty samples according to your beauty profile.
The Endless Summer theme for this month was meant to help extend the feel of summer into the upcoming fall season. While I don’t understand how these particular products reflect this month’s theme I was pleased with what I got nonetheless.
For this month, my Birchbox contained:
– stila Matte About You Liquid Lipstick in Aria (a soft pink)
– Living proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil
– HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder
– Acure Organics Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes
– Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
I was really pleased with everything in this month’s box. The stila liquid lipstick is a beautiful soft pink that goes on super smooth and really does last all day. When I went on the website to check out other colors I was pleased to see that they came in a set of three for only $20.
I’ve been into hair products lately, after discovering how good my hair can look with Beauty Protector’s Protect & Detangle spray. I received it in my May Birchbox and ever since I’ve been experimenting with more hair care products. So I’m more than happy I received the nourishing oil from Living proof. I cant wait to see what that can do.
Next up are the Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes. You can never have too many towelettes, well at least I can’t. I use them up like they’re water. Nothing better than cleaning your face in a matter of seconds. Especially when your slowly falling asleep and realize last minute tat you didn’t properly clean your face. And a huge plus for the Acure Organics ones because they have argan oil in them and they smell like coconut!
For me, the newest item in the box is the HUM Nutrition Superfood Powder. Lately, I’ve been making “green” smoothies in the hopes that my energy level will go up and Ill get back to working out. So this protein powder could not have come at a better time. From the instructions all you need to do is pore the contents in any smoothie, drink or even just water. I’ll let everyone know how I feel about this one after giving it a good test run.
Last but not least is the Marcelle BB Cream. This product is not new to me, as I received a sample before in a previous box. And while I did use up the sample I got, I didn’t find the need to purchase the full size mostly because I have more primers than I need but I also thought it didn’t do anything my bronzer can’t.
An overall thumbs up for this months box. I like the fact that every month the boxes seem to get better and better.
If you’re interested, its not too late to get the August Birchbox subscription. And if you use the code EYEKOGIFT at checkout you’ll receive a free eyeliner (which I’ve used and love).
And best of all when you review your products you can get $5 back in points to use towards full size items in their store. I’m still saving mine for this beauty or this gorgeous box of goodies. Can’t wait till I save enough points.
