July 2014 Birchbox

Its that time again!  I feel like birchbox has really stepped up their game with the past few boxes.  I have been getting more products and bigger sizes… Good for you Birchbox!

So lets take a peek into what this Health themed box holds for me today…

As you can see lots of goodies!  Alright first off

We have this Ruffian nail polish from their Rapture collection in the shade Ambrosia.  Birchbox started offering something new to their subscribers this past month were you  get to choose one of your samples and/or shade!  I was super excited about that as one of the two samples was something I already had (Cynthia Rowley lip gloss) and in the Rapture Collection there are three colors and two were similar to shades I already own.  I don’t have anything like this metallic purple so I’m excited to give it a try on my nails this weekend!

Also included as a bonus is a Ruffian Acetone-free towelette to remove the polish, Thanks Birchbox!

Next are these two cute little sample pots of Beauty Protector Protect and Treat Mask.  I like the Beauty Protector line so I’m excited to try this and it smells amazing like the rest of the line.  I think I could get 2-3 uses out of every pot so I think I should be able to give a pretty solid review on this hair mask.

Ok Birchbox, one complaint for this box…I feel like I always get a lotion and it takes me forever to get through even sample sizes!  So if we could lay off of that for a few months that would be super nice.  But, this Naobay Body Radiance Lotion does have a nice scent and I will add it to my collection on my desk at work.

Isn’t this little Posiebalm from Benefit the cutest thing! Why is it that women (well at least me…) have a fit when something is in a small package?  This lip balm is just so cute in its little package!  This is a mango butter balm that has a very sheer wash of pink.  I swiped it on as soon as I got it out of its packaging and its been on for about 30 minutes and is still moisturizing.

Lasty is the most intriguing product in this months box.  It is the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel.  The card says that this is an acid free peel that gently exfoliates for softer, smoother, brighter skin instantly… We shall see, I hope I can get a few uses out of this bottle so I can give a true review.


Ok so if you are not on board with Birchbox what are you waiting for?!  One of the reasons I keep coming back to Birchbox is their  points system where you use your points to buy products in the Shop. You can get points a few different ways: One is by referring people (50 points),  buying products in the shop (1 point for every $1 spent), and by reviewing the products you received in your box (10 points for each review).  And… 100 points=$10.  So with a little math you can see that if you review all your products every month, you will get, on average, $5 in points a month.  I like to look at that as getting my box for half price!
