Birchbox Limited Edition ‘Forever Summer’ Box Review

Birchbox consistently delivers some of the most incredible limited edition beauty, skincare, and makeup boxes I have ever reviewed in terms of curation and value. I am always so excited to see a new one launch.

Birchbox Forever Summer Limited Edition beauty subscription box review clear handbag

This purse is SO much larger than I imagined. It is actually incredibly functional and I am happy to have it, especially with so many concerts, sporting events, and theatre venues requiring purses be clear now. The handle is faux leather in mint and the clear vinyl is pretty thick, so I hope it will last me quite a while. It would also be perfect for the beach, not that I have seen one in a really long time!

Each box comes with a card detailing all the items included:

Let’s see what is inside!

 

tarte Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 Setting Mist, 2.5 oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $25.00

I have used this setting spray before and I really like it. It works really well at setting my makeup during the day, and holds up pretty well in the heat! Even in the hot months when I wear less makeup, this is great for giving my skin an instant dewiness and a nice cooling off. It smells really fresh and sort of beachy, but without the coconuts!

 

rms beauty luminizer X quad, 4.8 g – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $48.00

Each of these4 luminizing cream shades are very glossy and sheer. They are incredibly natural looking and don’t pack much pigment, but rather shimmer instead. Since they do have a lot of gloss, I feel like these might be hit or miss for some people, but I enjoy them. They look great on my cheekbones and the tip of my nose. I also think they are really quite lovely on my eyelids for that shiny shadow trend that is happening right now.

 

Wander Beauty Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara, 0.35 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $26.00

There is something I love about a squeezy tube mascara. It makes me feel like I can really get all of that stuff out! I liked this formula. It didn’t really add volume, but it certainly defined each and every lash and gave them length. This works for me because I like a natural lash, especially in the summer when really thick volume feels almost too much. It wore well and had zero clumps.

 

Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream, 1.7 fl oz  – Travel Size Retail Value $19.50

This cream actually manages to smell expensive. It is almost perfumy! I like to use creams like this on my dry hair to control frizz and flyaways. This formula is lightweight, adds a little gloss, and really cuts down on the general craziness that is my hair. This is also the perfect size to toss in my purse for on the go smoothing.

 

COOLA Sport Classic Moisturizer SPF 50 in ‘White Tea‘, 1.7 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $32.00

COOLA is one of my fave brands and I have gotten a few samples this season, meaning I won’t need to buy any! That is a win for someone like me who is fair and considers sunscreen an essential. I like this brand because it is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave that gross sunscreen film on my skin. This stuff also smells great and plays nicely with my makeup all day.

 

Bumble and bumble. Surf Spray, 1.7 fl oz – Travel Size Retail Value $16.00

Is it even a summer box without a salty beach inspired spray for your sunny tresses? No, I say! Love this stuff. It is a perfect spray for lighter or heavier hair, as the mist is so fine you can consider it buildable! Little spray for just a little texture, or really commit and spray a few times for a truly beachy look. It smells really great and totally summery, but also not stereotypically beachy.

 

R+Co DARK WAVES Fragrance Gel, 0.5 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $28.00

You guys know I love R+Co hair creams. They work great and smell even better! This is a departure for them, as this product is for your skin and not your hair. This gel smells like their iconic and recognizable ‘Dark Waves’ scent and absorbs into the skin very quickly with a slightly powdery texture finish. While I did get a strong fragrance payoff at first, it was very fleeting. I think this could be a really great product but I need more staying power to be genuinely impressed.

 

Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer in ‘Marriage No. 2’, 0.5 oz –  FULL SIZE! Retail Value $22.00

I am SO obsessed with this lip gloss! It is delightfully glossy and the coral shade is summer perfection. It adds color to your lips without looking like you are wearing much of anything and the medium weight gloss clings to your lips without being sticky. The name of the gloss is also quite cheeky, and though I plan on keeping my current husband around, it still makes me giggle. I also find the packaging so chic and pretty.

 

Georgette Klinger Vitamin C Cleansing Gel, 6.7 oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $26.00

This is one big bottle of cleanser! I have tried this before but it was a very small sample compared to the full size. It smells wonderful and lathers up beautifully. It made removing my makeup at the end of the day a snap and left my skin feeling smooth and super clean. This formula has loads of vitamin C and citrus extracts, both of which are skin glowing superstars.

 

Pūrlisse Watermelon Energizing Sheet Mask, 6 Pack  – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $18.00

Another summer staple: the watermelon sheet mask! These masks provide instant cooling and have cucumber and aloe extracts that compliment the watermelon beautifully. The serum is clear, lightweight, and not sticky. I wish the eye holes were a little farther apart, but I can certainly deal. I love that a full pack of 6 was included so you can enjoy them multiple times or share with a bestie.

Verdict: This Birchbox Limited Edition: ‘Forever Summer’ Box has an estimated value of about $260.50, which is wonderful for a $62 investment! There were loads of wins in this bag for me. My fave items would have to be the lip gloss, mascara, sunscreen, and the surf spray. I also liked the cleanser, luminizer quad, and setting spray. The only thing I am not 100% sold on would be the R+Co fragrance gel, though I think with tweaking it could be a fantastic product. This was a fantastic assortment of summertime essentials and even the clear purse is useful, and so much better than a random box. This LE totally gets my stamp of approval and it would be a great treat yourself buy.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

I just received this and I am very very pleased with the items very nice products and the bag is great for many uses. The two free samples did now seem very “deluxe” size to me but they were free so can’t complain. This bag was a great deal!

M smith

I just ordered this yesterday and used TAKE15 and also got the mystery 2 deluxe sample items free. I received my tracking info too. I cannot wait to get this and I didn’t need a subscription to buy it!

Adeline

I love this kit, wish i wasn’t broke. I would definitely jump on this.

Thanks for the awesome review and fomo

Megan K.

Glad you enjoyed the review Adeline! Fingers crossed for more awesome LEs this year.

Sara

Take15 and First15 didn’t work for me, but I found 15FORYOU to work.

Meredith

Got one – thanks for the review!

Megan K.

You are welcome, Meredith! Hope you enjoy <3

Barb

I opened mine over the weekend and couldn’t believe 8 full size products, 2 good sized deluxe products and that great bag. Along with the Lookfantastic Mother’s Day Box, this is my favorite box so far this year. I may have to get a spare!

Megan K.

It was awesome and everything was so much bigger than I expected! I love a BB LE!

Jen

LOVED this set!! I jumped on this it as soon as they released it – and for cheap with code “First15” (I’m aces too, not a first time customer, so I don’t think it has to be your first purchase with them to use the code)

My first wow was the size of this huge bag! Pulling it out of the box was like HELLO LOL I kept wishing I had a bigger bag so I didn’t have to keep packing multiple small ones, so this is perfect timing for summer traveling. It will actually fit full size products in it, or LOTS of travel things. It will also be great for hanging on the stroller with the kids things in it on our summer outings around town and the beach!

The product I was after, was the RMS Palette. I was surprised how small it was, however, it is GREAT. Definitely a summer makeup staple and gives so many on trend looks from one easy palette. Good things in small packages here!

The Smith and Cult lip colour is a pinky coral but goes on clear, so don’t let the colour scare you. I was hesitant on the Coola sunscreen bc I have had bad experiences with Coola burning my eyes. But, this one doesn’t have that eye stinging effect. Still not going to use it on my face though LOL but will on my chest, neck, and kids.. Speaking of- My 18 year old daughter snatched up about half the kit, but I’m glad. Its not everyday that you can get a kit this size, for this price, packed with usable stuff! 10 out of 10 would HIGHLY recommend to a MSA sister!

Megan K.

The first thing out of my mouth when I saw how big the bag was was “WOW.” I loved it so much and I’m glad you dd too!

Jennifer Metz

Thanks for the great review, I may have to treat myself to this one now!

Megan K.

Thanks for reading Jennifer! You should totally #treatyourself
