August 2014 BirchBox Review
Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that sends out around 5 or 6 product samples for you to try every month . You will typically find Beauty, Grooming and Lifestyle products inside each Birchbox. The box itself is a great way to find out about high end brands and new products without having to purchase full size!
Every month you get a chance to review your samples, and for every sample review you earn 10 points. So if you keep up with reviewing your samples every month you will gain around 50 to 70 points which accumulates to $1 for every 10 points, you basically get most of your money back that you spent on the box to spend in the birchbox shop. Also, for every purchase you make in the shop you will gain 1 point per dollar! For every friend you refer to Birchbox you will earn 50 points which is $5 to spend in the shop.
This months theme was “Lighten Up”
Staniac Sample The Balm Cosmetics
This is a tinted gel that leaves a long lasting stain on your lips. I tried this out it’s not sticky which I like and it did leave a little rosy red stain on my lips, it didn’t last all day so you do have to reapply it every few hours but I did enjoy this product. It can also be used as a cheek stain!
This is a stay put eyeliner that has a waterproof formula and includes both Vitamin E and Jojoba. It glides on like a velvety crayon and creates a smooth line without pulling at the sensitive skin around your eyes.
I’ve heard that this eyeliner works great and once I am finished with the liner I use right now I will be testing this one out!
Harvey Prince Ageless Body Cream Sample Size
I have heard lots of great things about Harvey Prince products lately so I was really looking forward to trying this out, even though it’s just a sample! This has a grapefruit-sandalwood fragrance and contains shea butter and other botanicals to soften your skin. It is also Hypoallergenic.
I really love the scent and it moistened the skin on my arms almost immediately, I think I will be using my Birchbox points on the full size product!
Vasanti Detox Nutrient Ruch Purifying Facial Cleanser
This cleanser helps by washing away toxins and pore clogging impurities without stripping the skin of it’s natural moisture. It’s also sulphate free and pareben free.
I am sure this cleanser would have been fantastic but unfortunately Dylan got into it and the floor ended with a good clean. Believe me, I was not very happy.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Sample Size
This is a weightless spray that absorbs oil and dirt and leaves your hair looking clean, deoderized and feeling lighter and softer. It also feature 7 great ingredients antioxidants, vitamins, healthy fatty acids, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and omega 7.
I really liked this when I tested it out, as usual I had that weird looking whiteness that I needed to shake out but after a minute of shaking and blending it into my hair I felt a much fresher texture and didn’t feel the need to wash my hair anymore.
This has probably been my favorite BirchBox so far! The shampoo and Harvey Prince moisturizer are my obvious favorites and as usual I will log in and review the products then get $5 back in points! What did you think of this months box?
