August Birchbox Review!
Another month, another Birchbox! I've been subscribed to Birchbox for quite awhile now. Almost a year, I want to say, but this will be the first one I'll be reviewing on this blog and one of my first actual blog posts on here! Wow, that's kinda exciting huh? I can't say I'm incredibly excited for this box, it was however nice to get in the mail as it contained a couple things I was really needing but because of budget issues have been putting off getting.
Now that's enough rambling, onto the review!
It came packaged as per usual with pretty tissue paper in the Birchbox box with a nifty little chevron print. I can't lie, I think the little pillow pack mini box thing that says 'tee-hee' is the cutest thing.
Inside was the info card. It's a bright sunny yellow color with "When you just have to keep calm and SPF on" printed on it. While KEEP CALM AND ____ is something I've seen enough of on the internet to not be particularly enthused seeing it on a Birchbox insert, it IS adorable and I love the color. It makes the Hufflepuff in me pretty happy.
Inside the pillow pack was two products.
Dr. Jart+ PORE MEDIC Pore Minish Primer: It feels and looks like your standard, clear primer. It feels matte and greasy all at once somehow but doesn't look matte. Overall it's nothing particularly special on me, but I'm always in need of a decent primer as my skin isn't so fond of foundation without it.
Harvey Prince Ageless Body Cream: This stuff smells AMAZING. My only complaint is I wish there was more, and even then it's a fairly generous sample. I've definitely gotten smaller, that's for sure! I might have to actually buy a full size of this one when I use it up.
Vasanti Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser: A face cleanser! It washes my face. I desperately needed one as my current face wash has been breaking me out. So, we'll see how this one works out.
amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo - 5.3 oz: Another thing I was in desperate need of, so I seriously can't complain about a decent sized sample of a dry shampoo.
Noir Long-Wear Eyeliner: Woo, another black eyeliner in a sub box. I can't say I don't have enough of these already, but an extra eyeliner is perfectly fine to have in my arsenal. It's smooth, doesn't smudge particularly easily and black, but not entirely so.
Have a swatcharoo on my hand.
Overall I liked this box! It had a few things I'm excited over, and a few things I'm a little 'meh' over but I will most certainly use everything in it. It's never a bad thing to get a box of things I can actually USE.
