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