Calling all birchbox lovers! Yep that’s right it is time for my August birchbox! What is Birchbox you ask? Well Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where you receive deluxe beauty samples for $10 and you can find more information about on my Box Services post. Not signed up for birchbox and want to be? Click here to get started.
This month Birchbox’s theme is Beauty School and Birchbox has teamed up with Pencils for Promise, an organization geared toward building schools. This month 15% of all sales on the Birchbox Shop will be donated to Pencils for Promise with the goal of making $25,000, enough to build a school. If you have wanted anything from the Birchbox shop I would recommend buying it this month to help this great cause.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur: Normally I am not a fan of receiving perfume samples but I was so excited to get this since I am almost out of my Viva La Juicy and I wanted to try this. I like this one much more then the original (and I LOVE the original) so I am planning on getting the full size. Sample Worth $3
Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover: These are three swabs pre-filled with makeup remover. You just snap one side to release the product and you can then fix any beauty goof in seconds. I already have some of these from another company and love them for fixing mascara and eyeliner smudges during the day. Sample Worth $.60
Miss Jessie’s Original Quick Curls: Another thing I was so excited to see in my box. I have curly hair so unless I want to straight it I use a curling product. I used this after showering the other day and it really helped tame my frizz and create curls and waves. It is a very lightweight styling cream as well. Sample Worth $8
Pixi Beauty Lid Last Shadow Pen: This full size shadow pen costs $18 so this product alone almost pays for the box not one but two times. I have never tried pixi beauty before but I have heard great things and I love this shadow pen. I got the color bronze brilliance, which is perfect for me considering I am a fan of natural eyeshadows. This pen is so smooth and pigmented. I will be buying this in a few more colors. Sample Worth $18
Schick Hydro Silk Razor: The Birchbox find of the month is this razor that is suppose to hydrate and protect your skin from irritation. I have a razor now that I really like so I think I will give this to my best friend who has yet to find a razor that doesn’t irritate her skin. There is also a coupon on the back for $4 off the refill blades and $.55 off any skintimate shave gel. Sample Worth $10
Box Total Worth = $39.60
