August Birchbox: Unboxed


I think this was one of my favorite Birchboxes in a while. I actually have three of the five products in my cart on Birchbox. The only reason the other two aren't in there is because the same size is actually pretty big! Keep reading to hear about the samples I'm obsessing over.


1. Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray ($39) // My first impression is that it smells so yummy. I actually love the way all of the Oribe products I've tried smell. I like this spray because it gave my hair more texture than the dry texturizing spray does. It helped my curls stay in longer, even in the insane humidity we've been dealing with lately. I didn't really notice if it made my hair shiner, but I want a full size bottle of stuff regardless!

2. Hey Honey Trick and Treat Cream Concealer ($32) // I don't remember saying what color skin I have in my Birchbox personalization survey but this stuff matched so well! And it stayed on so well (again in this awful humidity!) which was really impressive. It didn't settle into lines during the day either. 

3. Manna Kadar Cosmetics Day Dream Palette ($25) // I've never heard of this brand but y'all. I used this color on my lids and throughout the day it didn't crease at all! Like not even a little bit. I was so amazing. This color could be used as eyeshadow, blush, or highlighter. I used it as both eyeshadow and highlighter and I'm totally sold. Also the palette itself comes with six eyeshadows, two highlighters, one contour, and one blush. So mostly definitely worth the $25!

4. Benefit goof proof brow pencil ($24) // I really love Benefit's brow products. Like I want them all. But so far out of what I've tried, this pencil is probably my favorite. It's super easy to apply and so so hard to over fill your brows. It even stayed on during my workout which was probably most impressive because with all the humidity and heat, I'm literally dripping sweat when I'm done running (sorry for that visual!).

5. Bumble and bumble. Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer ($28) // Another product that smells so yummy!! Now I'm not sure what my hair would have looked like without it but I'm pretty sure this stuff kept my hair from getting super crazy frizzy. This primer is sitting in my Birchbox cart waiting for my next paycheck!


I really loved all of these products! Birchbox stepped up their game this month! If you've been thinking about taking the plunge for Birchbox, I really suggest you try it out. And if you don't like it, you're not locked in a contract.
