My kick ass sister in law got me a Birchbox subscription for Mother’s Day, and so far it has been basically the best. While I was too excited to show off my May and June boxes, I remembered to photograph the unboxing of my July Box. How adorable are those bright summer colors? I’m in love.
The July Birchbox came with all kinds of goodies, and is absolutely my favorite one yet. I actually already own two of the five products (the Benefit “They’re Real” Push-Up Liner and the Stila liquid lipstick in Beso) so I’m not including them in this next statement: My favorite product in this box was the Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Leave-In Conditioning Mist.
The Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Conditioning Mist, 8 oz smells so good it’s insane. My only complaint is that the scent doesn’t really last. I mean, I don’t think that’s exactly what it’s meant for, but if the smell could last I would be really freaking grateful. Anyway …. it definitely makes my hair feel softer and much more touchable. I love being able to run my fingers through my hair, and sometimes on a hot humid day it’s kind of impossible. Touchable hair is a summer must for me, so I’m really excited to have found this. You better believe that as soon as I run out I will absolutely be grabbing more.
As for these bad boys….
… I mean, you should definitely know how I feel about these two. They made my Summer Beauty Staples List and if you’ve seen me recently it’s a safe bet that I’ve been rocking both of these items. I love the bright, weightless, and long lasting Stila Liquid Lipstick, and Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner has some very serious staying power.
Now, the following two products are nice and all, but they’re nothing to write home about:
If I can be honest, I hate perfume samples. I have my scents, I know what I like. Perfume samples are completely pointless to me. And as for Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant? It leaves my skin feeling incredibly clean and smooth. I love scrubbing all that gross dead skin off, and while the full price version of this is pretty pricey I can definitely understand why it’s worth it. After one use my skin felt incredibly clean.
So there you have it. The July Birchbox was really everything I ever wanted Birhcbox to be. Three fairly large samples and five great brands. Gotta love it. Five out of Five because Birchbox really hit it out of the park with this one. I loved four out of the five samples, and the colors and overall design of this box make me want to leave it out on display forever! So stinking cute!
