August 2015 Birchbox

It’s that time of month again!  My August Birchbox came in and I’m pretty excited to share it with you guys!  

Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products and very little makeup.

This month’s theme is: Soak It Up!

The box is so stinkin’ cute!!!  Whoever comes up with the Birchbox box designs is doing a fantastic job!  They have really stepped up their game!

Rene Furterer LISSEA Leave-In Smoothing Fluid Sample:  Full Size=$31

Nourishing formula that protects hair during heat styling, plus tames flyaway and frizz.

It’s a pretty small sample, but I think I can squeeze out a few uses.  You apply this to towel-dried hair and leave it in.  Then you blow dry your hair like usual.  I’m excited to see how this works out!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant Sample: Full Size=$78 (WOW!)

Breakthrough at-home treatment for a glowing complexion-no pricey derm appointment required.

It says you can use this 1-2 times per week.  I’m just shocked at the price tag!

Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution Deep Hydration Sheet Mask (Full Size!!) : Full Size=$6

Cellulose sheet mask that deeply hydrates thirsty skin and helps it naturally retain moisture.

I will admit I haven’t tried many asian skincare products (although I’ve heard awesome things!)

I also haven’t tried a sheet mask before.  It sounds absolutely fantastic though!

I’ve heard really great reviews on this mask so I’m super excited to try it out!

St. Tropez Gradual In-Shower Tan Sample: Full Size=$25

This convenient, innovative self-tanner delivers buildable color for a natural-looking glow.

I’m not a self-tanning person.  I have a medium skin tone so I’m not lacking a tan at all.  But, I know I can definitely use this in the Winter when my arms and legs lose their color a bit.  My legs tend to lose more color and so this could be perfect!

LAQA & Co. Lip/Cheek Crayon Sample: Full Size (set of 3)=$20

This creamy crayon delivers an easy-to-apply deep color for both lips and cheeks.

I received mine in the shade “Humble Brag.”

It’s a pretty small sample, but will be enough to see how I like the formula and the color.

All in all, I’m quite pleased with the products I received this month.  I think I can get use out of all of them and they’re all new products to me.

What did you get in your box this month?  Has anyone had any experience with any of these products?  Let me know!

    1. I probably won’t use it until later on the year. I’m just hoping it doesn’t turn me into an Oompa Loompa Orange color!
