Birchbox July 2013

I am always eagerly awaiting my monthly birchbox. It's like a little present for me every month.

Let me tell you what birch box is, just in case you are not familiar with it.
It's a monthly subscription service which is $10.00 a month where you get sent 5-6 high-end samples each month. First you take a little survey so they can find out more about your skin, make up likes and dislikes so they know what to send you.

You know how I love trying out new products? Well, with the birch box, I can try high end products without having to buy full size products. If I love the product, then I can go buy it :)

If you are interested in checking it out, go to Birch Box

Lets take look into this months box:

What Birchbox Says: Beyond its intense moisturizing powers, the creamy formula also regulates skin’s oil levels with a botanical brigade. Blueberry and white dead-nettle purify skin, while jasmine, burdock, and mandarin reduce breakouts and redness. 
What I say: I haven't used this moisturizer yet, but it sounds natural and good for my skin. Excited to try it out. 

What Birchbox Says: The water-resistant formula uses tiny fibers to beef up your fringe without any irritation. Nourishing beeswax and carnauba wax keep lashes plush. 
What I say: I love this mascara. It is amazing, one coat does wonders. Something I will definitely repurchase once I run out. 

What Birchbox Says: Zinc gluconate preserves color by strengthening ionic bonds between coloring agents, while linseed oil polishes hair fibers to maximize light reflection. A patented UV protectant filters sun damage and blocks environmental stressors that cause premature fading. 
What I say: I have not used this yet, but it sounds good. Especially since I ran out of my deep conditioner. 

 What Birchbox Says: Snag-free enamel and a slight upward bend at the tip helps these bobby pins slide easily over strands.
What I say: These bobby pins are so cute! 

What Birchbox Says: The silky powder leaves behind a lasting stain that blends in seamlessly with your skin. There are six lovely shades: Lace, a rosy bright pink; Argyle, a soft baby pink; Pinstripe, a warm plum; Houndstooth, a mauve with subtle bronze shimmer; Toile, a warm coral with red undertones; and Swiss Dot fresh tangerine. 
What I say: This is a gorgeous color, love the peachy color. Something I have been using almost daily since I received it in the mail. 

Thanks for visiting. 


  1. I received theBalm InStain blush in Swiss Dot this month too and love it! I've worn it almost everyday since I received my box. I'm definitely planning to buy a couple of the shades. I've been curious to try these blushes since they released, so I was thrilled to get one in my box this month.

  2. That's so awesome that you got a mascara in your Birchbox! I haven't seen anyone else so far who received that this month - I'm jealous! Although, I can't complain too, much since I LOVED my July Birchbox. Enjoy that mascara!

  3. Do you feel that Birchbox is hit or miss? I just received my first box this month and was very disappointed. I didn't get any of the great goodies you got, I got a sunscreen sample, a tanning towel sample, leave in conditioner and a foundation sample that was far too dark for my fair skin. I'm debating canceling the subscription.

  4. You got an awesome box! So jealous of the InStain bluzh sample! I did get an awesome Benefit toner though!

    Check out my box:

  5. You got the same exact box I did! I didn't think of it as a great box, but it was the best of the last three. I have been super busy, but I am going to try to remember to link up when the box comes...any time now!
