August 2014 Birchbox Review


Another late review, I know! I had to wait on this review because when I opened up my Birchbox last week, I was a bit surprised to see that there were only two items inside. Let .e just say, Birchbox is a fantastic service and their customer service was great and very quick to ship me a new box. This is the first time I have ever had any issues with them and they more than made it right!


For anyone who has (somehow) never heard of Birchbox let me tell you the details.  Birchbox, my very very first subscription box (aka the gateway drug for most subscription box junkies) is a beauty subscription service. For $10 a month you receive a box of 5-6 sample and deluxe sample sized beauty and lifestyle products. You may sometimes receive a full sized product in your box as well!


August's theme is Lighten Up, because it's to hot to be weighed down by heavy product. I personally couldn't agree more... melting makeup = disaster.


My first look this time was much better than the last! Yay!


Neil George Shampoo & Conditioner --- ok... These sizes are fabulous! I think these are the biggest size samples I've ever gotten in my Birchbox. Yay! I hadn't ever heard of this particular brand but I'm most definitely a fan now. A paraben-free and antioxidant rich formula that smells amazing and shines up those dull locks!


Laura Geller Cool Lids Eye Shadow --- A little of this goes a very long way. It's a very intensely pigmented silver. I love the blendability and it stays put for hours!


Key West Aloe Mango Moisturizing Lotion --- A delicious scent! Absorbs easily and it's really rich. Into my purse it goes! 


Nugg Beauty Revitalizing Mask --- I haven't tested this one out yet but I plan on doing it tonight. It's a 95% natural treatment that moisturizes and leaves your skin revitalized with an assortment of oils.

I really enjoyed everything I received in this month's box. My favorite ones are most definitely the shampoo and Conditioner.  Those sizes are crazy! Now I will wait impatiently for the September box to ship!
