Each box comes with a card that has a blurb of the month’s theme.
And on the flip side, it details the items included and some tips on how to use them.
Beaver Professional Repair Rescue Shampoo – 2 fl oz, value: $3.65
Beaver Professional Repair Rescue Conditioner – 1.35 fl oz, value: $3.25
I’m happy that these are for hydration because that’s a hair concern of mine. I haven’t tried these yet but I think they smell pretty good and I appreciate that they’re larger samples than normal/1 oz/foil packet.
Rms Beauty The Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipes – 2 wipes, value: $1.60
These were my sample choice this month. These are nice! I like them especially since they’re made with coconut oil. I think these would make your face feel “greasy” if you don’t normally care for face oils, though.
Acure Organics Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub – 1 oz, value: $3.26
I just finished up a different exfoliant from Acure Organics so I’m happy to have another! I like this brand a lot.
The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick in Guava Nice Day - .09 oz (Full Sized!), value: $14.95
This is a new product to me. I love that it’s full sized. The formula also feels very nice and moisturizing, and a little goes a long way as far as color goes.
Here’s what the lip pencil looks like on. I love this shade!
The Verdict: I’m really happy with this month’s Birchbox. I got to try some new products from brands I love as well as find something completely new to me that I really liked. This box has a value of about $26.71. It’s actually a little on the low side for Birchbox compared to some of my previous boxes, but I’m not disappointed with it for $10!
