Banded Headband – Value $10
I love this headband! The colors are great, and the inside is lined in a no-slip velvet like material, and it has enough stretch in the elastic part to not hurt my head!
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – 1 oz Value $9
I am on dry-shampoo overload thanks to subscription boxes, but including a dry shampoo in a gym box makes sense! I’ve sampled this one before and I like it – the scent is great, and it doesn’t leave any type of white residue.
Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Gel Cleanser – 50 ml Value $5
This cleanser is designed especially for oily and acne-prone skin. It is non-foaming, and I like the scent. I also found it to be gentle – just as described! (I just got this in the August Allure Beauty Box too!)
SAGE & ROW bare shave cream – FULL SIZE! Value $17
(Good to know for swaps – inner foil seal)
I first sampled this shave cream thanks to the May POPSUGAR Must Have box, and I’m a fan! It’s a paraben and sulfate free formula, and I like the scent too. (It’s my go-to back up when I forget to buy new Schick Intuition razor blades!)
Pointe Studio Socks – Value $22?
I have these socks thanks to other subscription boxes, and I’m a fan of the colors and patterns. (I was expecting both socks to be grippy, but the purple ones are regular athletic socks).
Joha Stripes Earbuds with Mic (colors will vary) – Value $8
From what I can tell from the Amazon reviews, these aren’t the best quality headphones, but will be a good backup pair to keep in a gym bag, purse, etc.
Vapur Shades Anti-Bottle (colors will vary) – Value $10
This “bottle” is BPA free, and I like the carabiner clip and drinking spout cap (it isn’t exposed when you aren’t drinking).
Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $24
I sampled this mascara before thanks to a Bianca Jade Quarterly box. It wasn’t for me, so I will be swapping it.
It provides good lash separation, and pretty good length and volume as well. Unfortunately, I found the formula to be a little irritating to my eyes, so I don’t think it is a winner for me. (After realizing it was irritating my eyes, I tried to remove it with my regular makeup remover wipes, and had zero success – this is definitely a 100% waterproof, smudgeproof mascara – just a heads up when it is time to remove it!)
theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac – FULL SIZE! – Value $17
This stain isn’t as pigmented as I was expecting. You can rub it in for a very subtle look, or layer more. I think this is my preference with a stain – that way I can avoid accidently overdoing it and getting a permanent clown face that requires complete makeup removal!
Here is a swatch to show the color:
Also, just a reminder to make sure to add your free sample pack if you buy this box (or any other Birchbox shop order of $35 or more before discounts).
Here are the two samples I received with this order:
Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream – .5 oz Value $1
Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Indigo – .8 g Value $7
I’m happy with my samples – the eyeliner goes on smoothly and stays put! Plus I love the indigo color. (And I just realized that I complain about getting too many eyeliner samples if they are part of a subscription box, but if they are bonus I’m happy!)
Verdict: This limited edition box has a value of about $122. Even though I won’t use every product, I’m still really happy with this purchase, especially since I used a 20% off coupon to get it even cheaper! What do you think of the Birchbox Limited Edition Gym Bag Heroes Box?
