My July Birchbox

Hello Again!

Yes, I am a bit late with this subscription box review, since it is now August.

How many of you ladies subscribe to Birchbox's monthly beauty box? I started receiving mine back in May. Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with my first two boxes. The choices were interesting, but some of the items seemed a bit random to me (blue glitter eyeliner anyone?).

I decided to give the monthly subscription one more go, and I am glad that I did! Here is what I received:
Birchbox partnered with Glamour magazine this time around. The theme for July was our five senses, and using them to fully experience Summer.
 I received:
1) Larabar Uber Nut Roll.-I found this roll to be super yummy and filling.
2) Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint-I tried a bit on my skin, I like the clean feeling and light coverage.
3)Oscar De La Renta Live in Love perfume sample-Not really my kind of scent, but not bad.
4) Bamboo UV Fade Proof Fluid-I can't wait to try this on my ever-fading red hair.
5)A pair of Glamour ear buds-Very cute and useful.
 6) I also received this Stila lip glaze that I forgot to include in the pic. It is a great neutral color!

In my opinion, I feel like Birchbox is a good deal for the $10 monthly subscription fee. You receive quality, name brand products (occasionally they are even full size). Overall, I am happy with this Birchbox and will continue on with my subscription. For you Birchbox subscribers, how do you like the boxes thus far? Does anyone subscribe to Glossybox?



  1. This looks like a fun box - I like the earbuds. I had to cancel pretty much all of my subscription boxes to save for my wedding (except Julep anyway!).

  2. I've never tried Birchbox. I was tempted by Glossybox but took the time to full consider and realised how many half-used sample products I have... so even though the price is low, it didn't seem like a sound investment. Still, every time I read one of these posts I get tempted to subscribe! I've always been a sucker for a surprise box :)

  3. I haven't gotten any subscriptions to any of those boxes because I don't want to be disappointed :) Haha, I know, what an optimist, huh? I'm glad that you got a good box this time, Adrienne!
