August Birchbox

August Birchbox

My August Birchbox came about 2 weeks ago and I'm just NOW getting around to posting about it. I don't have a whole bunch to say about my box this month because I saved a couple things aside for the future and I gave a couple things away already.  But I am curious what YOU got, because as my Birchbox points add up, I am starting to think hmmm....what do I want to redeem my points for?

My favorite item:  Surprisingly I loved the Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Le Fleur perfume.  I usually hate getting perfume samples, and I feel like this is at least my second or third Juicy Couture brand fragrance.  However...this one is positively yummy.  It is out of stock in the Birchbox shop, but just smelling it reminded me that I love the regular Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy from their line, so I went to the local discount store and picked up a little bottle.  It's not the exact same fragrance, but the one I got was less sheer so it will last longer.  

My least favorite item:  Stila foundation.  It came in a foil packet that didn't even have enough inside it to cover up one cheek.  For real, Birchbox?  I was annoyed.

Other than that, the box was pretty neat.  I loved getting a razor as a bonus item but I gave it to my mom because the kind I buy is from Costco and I can get mega cheap refills there.  I haven't opened the Yu-be lotion yet.  The Whish shaving cream is pretty nice but there's no way I would spend $20 on shaving cream when my beloved Dr. Bronners lathers up perfectly well and does the job as both my shaving cream AND my body wash.

What did you get?  Now that it's almost September we will be getting our next ones soon already!  If you're not familiar with Birchbox, it is a $10 monthly subscription service where this lovely makeup/perfume/haircare/skincare/lifestyle company sends you a box of 4-5 product samples monthly.  Sometimes they are super tiny, other times a deluxe sample, and sometimes full size.  You fill out your feedback on the items after you receive them and save up your points for full size swag from their beauty shop.  Pretty sweet!

  1. I got the Yu-be lotion in my Birchbox, and it really surprised me. I have one elbow that I tend to lean on and it's gotten rough in recent months. In just a couple applications, my elbow is smooth again. I haven't repurchased it, but I'm still considering it.
