The theme for Augusts Birchbox was 'Soak It Up'.
As summer peaks (temp-wise and watermelon-consumption-wise), we're taking advantage of every last minute. That means embracing air-dried hair, ensuring our skincare is SPF-heavy and keeping our makeup minimal. We hope you love this month's samples, and can't wait to see how you use them!
I feel like I received a fairly well rounded box this month and will use 4 out of the 5 products I got. In this months box I received :
Amika - Nourishing Mask - Paraben-free treatment that conditions and repairs with superfruit sea buckthorn berry. Tip! Once a week, smooth onto lengths and ends of damp hair. Leave on 5-10 minutes before rinsing. I will use this probably once a week after I do a clarifying treatment on my hair.
Crabtree & Evelyn - Ultra-moisturizing Hand Therapy - Made with macadamia oil and shea butter, this ultranourishing cream hydrates and protects hands. I have already used this and love how it makes my hands feel! I am not a fan of the scent of this but am interested enough to try and see if there is a scent that isn't quite so strong.
Curly Hair Solutions - Curl Keeper Gel - Water-based, never-crunchy formula that fends off frizz and leaves curls sleek and shiny. Tip! After styling, apply a small amount of gel to hair. To reactivate, smooth with wet hands. I am looking forward to trying this out but will need to find a container to put it in as it is a fairly good sized sample but it is in a cardboard type non resealable package.
LAQA & Co. - Charm School Kit - This creamy crayon delivers a rich, easy-to-apply color for both lips and cheeks. I received the color Cray-Cray which is a coral color. It is a little to orange for me! When I tried this out the other day it sunk into lip lines within 10-20 minutes and just looked horrible. I also have an aversion to using a product on my lips than using it on my cheeks! It would have ot be one or the other for me.
St Tropez - Gradual Tan In Shower - This convenient, innovative self-tanner delivers buildable color for a natural-looking glow. Tip! Apply evenly in circular motions to damp, clean skin. Wait 3 minutes, then rinse. I have used St Tropez regular foaming self tanner and really liked the color I got. I will be trying this out this weekend to see how it is.
I am quite happy with this months box, once again not to exciting but for me a good value since I will use almost everything I recieved. Do you get Birchbox? How did you like your selection of products? I am still on the hunt for a new subscription box!
