Birchbox – August 2012

August 12, 2012

My newest Birchbox showed up yesterday!  It was themed ‘Beauty School’ since I guess everyone is going back to school right around this time of year.  But who are we kidding?  I’m not going back to school, lol!

I had a great box last month so I was hoping this month’s box would live up to the same expectations…and it sure did!

The goods.

Okay…from left to right:

  • Schick Hydro Razor (price wasn’t listed) – Tried it out and I’m pretty impressed.  I don’t normally buy razors that I have to buy refills for since I think they are too expensive, but I’ll admit this is one that I think I’d actually see myself buying.
  • Caldera Hand Soap (little green containers in the middle/full size is $10.50) – Haven’t tried them yet since I love the little mini sample boxes and want to keep them in my diaper bag for when I’m stuck in one of those situations where there is no soap in a public restroom.
  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner (I got the full size!!!! Full size is $20.00) – score…super happy I got a full size product and I’m happy with the color.  It’s a sparkly dark brown.
  • Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream (at the very top/full size is $16.00) – haven’t tried it yet…simple as that.
  • Juicy Couture Viva La Fleur (full size is $70) – very floral and fruity which is exactly the type of scents that I love.

Overall – I really like this box.  And the main bonus was the Stila eyeliner that paid for two boxes…and by that I mean since it’s worth $20 dollars and each box is $10…it was like getting my first two boxes for free since I would have bought this eyeliner anyway.  Totally glad I signed up for Birchbox!

    I have been wanting to get the Birchbox, but I signed up for the Stork Stack instead – I look forward to receiving it in September 🙂
