Birchbox Review August 2013

I just got my Birchbox TODAY! It has a hard time flying all the way over here to Hawaii, but whatevs.

Box: Birchbox gives you beauty and lifestyle products each month.

Price: $10/month.

Contents: 4-5 samples each month, from mini to deluxe, & sometimes full-size!


The theme for this month is ‘Finishing School’. Ehh, I don’t really care for themes in regards to beauty boxes.

Info. card and coupons!

Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes (Value $1):
This would definitely come in handy as I wear slippers all the time (dirt prone!), but I don’t know if I would buy them.

Show Stoppers (Value $1?):
I believe these are black, which I find weird as they are meant to cover cleavage or hide bra straps. Regardless I’ve used these before (different brand though) and it is an amazing product! So handy, super classy.


Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer (Value $7):
Super super super excited to have a moisturizer! I also have heard ahhhmazing things about Juice Beauty, so this was my highlight item in the box.

Supergoop Anti-Aging Eye Cream (Value $6):
More spf, whoo hoo! Hopefully I’ll remember (or not be too lazy) to use this eye cream, as I need to better prevent again around my eyes! I think I’m going to be wrinkly in old age, so prevention is key 😉

Model Co. Party Proof Matte Lipstick in ‘Disco Fever’ (Value $8?):
This is a weird one! It says ‘matte’ on the packaging, but ‘semi-matte’ on the info. card, and it is for sure  semi-matte. Don’t like that misleading-ness at all, but besides that I do like the lipstick. It’s a color that I don’t really own!

Final Thoughts: This was a pretty great Birchbox, but for some reason I’ve been toying with the idea of unsubscribing! I just have so much beauty products, and I’m already in love with IPSY. (Plus I think IPSY will always top Birchbox.) I think I’ll stick it out for a couple more months. This was a great bag though, as the value clearly exceeded $10 ($23!), and I am really excited about the lipstick and moisturizer.
