Birchbox July 2014

It’s that time of the month again… no, not that time. Time to reveal what my Birchbox contained, silly!

To recap, for $10 monthly, Birchbox will ship a box of 4-5 deluxe sample sizes (and sometimes full size items!) to your door. You won’t know what you get until it comes (unless you cheat and look online early) and they send you items based on your beauty profile. So without further ado, my Birchbox:

Birchbox July 2014

Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby!

As a bonus to this month’s box, there was also a card included for a free year subscription to Women’s Health magazine. Pretty sweet deal!

Dr. Brandt Pores No More / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Dr. Brandt Pores No More – I was excited to see this because I’d heard all sorts of great things. Sadly, its not for me. I have dry skin around my nose and chin (where I’m treating breakouts) and this is better for oily skin than dry/combo skin. The texture of this is matte, it goes on smooth and I can see this would be great for most people, just not for my skin. (.25 oz / Value $9.25)

Laqa & Co. Lip Lube + Swatch in Menatour / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Laqa & Co. Lip Lube in Menatour – I was so thrilled to see this in my box. I’ve been dying for a purple lip color, because I’m weird like that. I love this. The only thing I don’t love is that the formula does contain Propylparaben, which I try to avoid. (.07 oz / Value $18)

Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel – Okay, I’m such a weirdo but this peel is fun. You spread it on for about 30 seconds, then rub it in. Then you rub it plus any dead skin off your face. I’d say its similar to the feeling of pulling off one of those Biore nose strips. Fun in a weird way, right? (.1 oz / Value $4.80)

Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect – This hair mist smells really… interesting. I’m not quite sure how to describe it, it’s not bad, but it’s definitely different. I haven’t had much of a chance to try this out, but it seems to do what it says. (1 fl oz / Value $4.73)

Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Rosary / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Rosary – This is a pretty dark rose metallic shade. Love it. This is my second polish from Ruffian, the first was back in my very first Birchbox! Aw, memories. Anyways, I love Ruffian’s formula, it’s long lasting and their shades are always on point. (.17 oz / Value $11)

Ruffian Dressing Room Nail Lacquer Remover Towelettes / Birchbox July 2014 / hellorigby! Ruffian Dressing Room Nail Lacquer Remover Towelette – I haven’t used this yet… but it definitely looks like the perfect travel companion! I’m sure it will save me when I ruin my nails while traveling next month. (1 ct / Value $1.20)

This may be my favorite Birchbox yet. Not only did I score some great products, but the total value is unreal. For $10, I got two full sized products, a magazine subscription, plus some other awesome samples worth over $58. Crazy.

Did you get Birchbox this month? What was your favorite item?

    That looks like it will be such an awesome polish color for fall– love the more coppery/metallic shades! The face mask sounds so nice too– sometimes a good peel can feel so nice on your skin!

    That lip color is really beautiful on you – is it a lip crayon? I’m all about the fun lip shades, so I would be all over this (though I don’t think it would look the same on me…). I remember getting the hair mist when I was still getting Birchbox and I loved it! I guess the smell is interesting though?

      Yes, it’s a crayon! The smell was just surprising to me, I’m used to hair mists smelling sweeter, this smelled more like hairspray to me!

  3. Selbe

    This has nothing to do with the post, but I love your layout!

    And I love that lip color. Trying out new colors is always fun!

    I had a Birchbox subscription for a number of months and it is so much fun! I found that getting those little treats kept me from splurging on new, full priced products. I have gotten a Ruffin nail polish before and LOVED it!

    I used to get Birchbox a few years ago, and now I want to re-subscribe! I have the Dr. Brandt Pores No More, and I love it, but I have oily skin. That lip color is awesome, I’ve been looking for a similar color!

  6. Rochelle

    I have always wanted a Birchbox! I got my sister in law a subscription for Christmas and she loves it. Now if only someone would get me one! Or I’ll just have to splurge and treat myself. This month’s box seems pretty sweet!

      Highly recommend Birchbox! It is also very easy to cancel if you’re not a fan of your first box and their CS team is amazing!

  7. Shanon

    The nail polish remover looks fantastic! I used to be subscribed to birch box too, but they were getting less interesting at one point. I think I just might get subscribed again! I love your post too – super fun to read! Can you please review Vain Pursuits? I’ve heard a lot about them lately, all my friends are talking about them.

    1. Jenn Post author

      Aw, thanks Shanon! Glad it was helpful! I signed up for Vain Pursuits but am still on their “vain list (wait list). Hopefully I’m off soon! :)

    What a fun box to receive. As much as I love trying new skincare, beauty and haircare products I do not know why I haven’t signed up for this yet, but I shall. Thanks for your review.
