Birchbox Review + Coupon Code – July 2018


Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.


Birchbox offers 4-6 (sometimes more) hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples, delivered to your door each month. I have been subscribing to Birchbox for over five years now and would say they are one of the most (maybe the most) well-known subscription boxes out there. They are certainly one of the longest lasting boxes.

Note: I took these pictures the day I came back from vacation and somehow missed taking a picture of all of the products together.  I guess that’s what I get for trying to do this when I was jetlagged!

Birchbox
Cost: $10/month

Birchbox ships via USPS and all boxes generally ship by the 10th of the month.

This review is on the regular July 2018 Birchbox.  The July 2018 Curated Birchbox is also available in the shop while supplies last.

My July 2018 Birchbox included the following items:

~MakeupDrop™ Original (Micro) ($20): I was shocked to see the horrible reviews this has been getting on Birchbox.  I have one (the larger size) and I love it.  I save a ton of product when I used it and it is perfect for applying concealer under my eyes.

~Real Chemistry Fresh-Start Foaming Cleanser (15mL) ($3): Smells like grapefruit and remove makeup, oil, dirt, and grime.  Not harsh, and works for just about every skin type.  I love this.  My face felt clean and fresh.  It didn’t strip away moisture, which is key for me!

~amika Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm (20mL) ($2.50): This smoothing balm helps keep frizz at bay and adds shine. This is totally perfect for my hair type.  It is straight (and rather flat), but I get a ton of flyaways and who doesn’t need a little more shine.  A little of this goes a long way, so this sample will last me a while.

~Solinotes Paris Mûre Eau de Parfum (~$1): Thi is fruity and sweet, with notes of raspberry, jasmine, bergamot, and lemon, with a base of sandalwood and musk.  The base balanced it out perfectly and I am all over this scent for summer.

~Eyeko Brow Liner(.04oz) ($11.43): This liquid liner is designed for your brows – to fill in spots as needed.  I have been getting my brows tinted – which makes them look fuller – but this will be nice for those times when my brows do need a little boost.

All totaled I came up with a value of $37.93 for the July 2018 Birchbox.  I am very happy with my box this month and am even more thrilled with the value.  I think this is the highest valued Birchbox I have received in ages!

Did you get Birchbox this month?  What you’d get in your box and what’d you think?
