August Birchbox Unboxing

Hey everyone, today I will be unboxing one of my favorite subscription boxes, my Birchbox. If you are unfamiliar with Birchbox, it is a beauty subscription box that comes every month with 5-6 deluxe samples in a beautiful box for just $10 a month. My favorite part about Birchbox is their fabulous rewards program. For every 10 points you earn, you receive $1 in store credit. The points are super easy to earn and build up super fast.  Join me by clicking here!

So let’s get into it.

I forgot to take a picture of the box so here is one from Subscription Box Ramblings:


The theme for this month was hair products that don’t weigh you down.


Here is my first look inside the box:


As you can see, my eyeshadow sample was completely smashed. This is why I uploaded this post in September, I wanted to give you a full review of the entire box.img_8840img_8841

I emailed Birchbox and they sent me another one so I could test it out. I honestly really love this eyeshadow. It is a full size item which is always appreciated and it is a great shade for me. I have recently been using this as a blush/highlighter but it can certainly be used for eyeshadow as well. My only recommendation if you use it as an eyeshadow is to mix it with a gray of black because it will help dilute the redness.


The next item I received was this Oribe Wave and Shine Spray. This is a really nice product for the days that you don’t feel like styling your hair. It has a very nice scent and really helps keep my hair looking and feeling beautiful.img_8842

Next was this Avene Cleansing Gel. This is a really nice cleanser for any skin type. It makes my skin feel super soft and healthy. img_8843

The next item in my box was this Bumble and Bumble Heat/UV Protector. This is one of my favorite haircare brands because everything smells and feels amazing!  This product is great for all year long because it protects your hair from all of the blow drying, hair straightening, curling action your hair is getting.img_8844

The last item in my box is this REN Flash Hydro-Boost Face Mask. This is one of my favorite items in the box because it really does do a good job of perfecting your skin and making it feel healthy and plump. img_8845

Overall, I am super happy with the products I received.img_8846
