Birchbox Review August 2012 – Beauty School Themed Monthly Subscription Box!
So weird seeing a yellow box instead of the typical pink one! It totally makes sense though as this month’s theme is beauty school!
The Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month including free shipping (Get a month free with a $110 annual subscription)
The Products: Deluxe and sometimes full size beauty and lifestyle items
Beauty Fixation Make Up Remover Swabs – (3 count) Value $.62
DDF Brightening Cleanser – 2 oz Value $9
Love that this is a deluxe sized sample! I really like this cleanser, it smells fresh and clean.
My only concern was after using this product was that I noticed this warning on the back of the bottle:
THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS AN ALPHA HYDROXY ACID (AHA) THAT MAY INCREASE YOUR SKIN’S SENSITIVITY TO THE SUN AND PARTICULARLY THE POSSIBILITY OF SUNBURN. USE A SUNSCREEN, WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, AND LIMIT SUN EXPOSURE WHILE USING THIS PRODUCT AND FOR A WEEK AFTERWARDS.
Comodynes Hydra Tanning Face Moisturizing Summer Glow – .2 oz total Value $3.70
Comodynes Self Tanning Intensive Towelettes – 2 packs Value $3.75
Really excited to try both of these. I saw some boxes last month had these tanning towelettes and I was a little jealous! Birchbox has never let me down with tanning products – I found out about XenTan because of them.
Viva La Juicy La Fleur – .05 oz Value $.78
Schick Hydro Silk – Value $6.99
Looks like Birchbox is going to start including Birchbox Finds, “affordable finds that will improve your day to day.” If these are going to be continued add on bonuses I’m cool with it. This razor will definitely get used!
Verdict: For $10 I received about $25 worth of product. Plus I’ll review the products and earn 50 pts ($5) to use at Birchbox on full size products. (Want to learn how to earn points from leaving feedback? Check out this TUTORIAL) I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love Birchbox!
