August Birchbox

I've been getting Birchboxes for the past 6+ months. I've always enjoyed most of the products but I gained a new appreciation for Birchbox after taking my vacation. I hardly had to buy any travel sized items because I had so many lying around! I even had laundry detergent pods from a few months ago that came in handy halfway into the vacation when Jake ran out of socks. 

I had plenty of shampoo packets saved up, as well as the perfect lipglosses and nail polishes for a summer trip.

Enough about my Birchbox & travel's what I got this month!
(sorry for the phone pictures. I was way too excited to go grab my camera...)

Whish Shave Cream $20.00 full size
This stuff smells amazing and made my legs feel silky smooth. I can't say I would buy this... I don't think I can justify spending $20 on shave cream!

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss $20.00 full size
The color looks super bright, but it turned out a sheer pink on my lips. I swiped again to get a slightly brighter pink color. This is a nice little sample to keep in my purse and didn't dry out my lips like a lot of gloss/lipstick does.

Viva La Juicy La Fleur $70.00 full size
I really liked this perfume. In fact, the sample I have is gone. It's a sweet floral smell so I probably wouldn't buy the whole bottle (I get sick of scents very easily). I did enjoy wearing it as long as the sample lasted, though!

Orbre Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color $36 and $39 full size
Ummm... I need to update my beauty profile. My hair's not colored and hasn't been since last December. There's no harm in using this product, but I just haven't tried it yet. I'll save it for another trip!

Schick Hydro Silk Razor $9.99, drugstores
This was a great Birchbox extra! I would never turn down a free razor- those things are expensive! The $10 value made the box pay for itself. There was also a $4 coupon on the back of this package to put towards a Schick razor. I haven't actually tried the razor since I'd just opened a new one, but I have no doubt it will give a smooth shave with the 5 blades and moisturizing bar around the blades.

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my Birchbox this month.

  1. I was really pleased with mine too, which is nice because I've read a lot of people were disappointed in this month's box. I love the lip gloss you got!

  2. Aw yours was way more fun than mine! The shave cream would have been fun to try.
    I'm going to Vegas next weekend, and I'm super excited to have all my travel supplies ready to go!

  3. I wanna try Birchbox, but like you I have so many samples around that I've made our guests a whole welcome basket ;) Looks like you get some good full size items though!

  4. Looks like a great month! Such good stuff!

  5. I so want the full size La Fleur!! It smells so good.

  6. You got a good box! Well despite your hair not being colored - mine is highlighted so that would have been so good in mine! I wasn't thrilled this month, but oh well. I did receive a full size Stila liner that I absolutely love, so Birchbox gets to keep me another month :)
