Time for another Birchbox! The theme For August was Beauty School. This month’s card, that contains the list of products enclosed, came with basic beauty tips to get you ready for back to school.
Here’s what was inside:
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream – a teeny tiny 0.1oz sample tube of a bestselling Japanese cream for skin or lips. I put some on my lips and it tastes terrible!
Viva La Juicy La Fleur – another typical fragrance sample. I’m not really a fan of any of the Juicy Couture scents but this one is tolerable. It’s a sweet, floral scent.
Pixi Lip and Line – a double ended full sized product! One end is a lip liner and the other is a lipstick. I got the color Orchid Rose which is a deep wine color. Dark colors are not my thing so I won’t be using this.
Miss Jessie’s Stretch Silkening Creme – this stuff is supposed to loosen tight curls which could come in handy for me. My hair is very curly so I’m curious to see if this works.
Schick Hydro Silk Razor – these razors can be very expensive so this is a nice bonus. Plus it came with a $4.00 off coupon for blade refills.
I’d have to say that this month’s Birchbox was hit and miss. I was excited to get the full sized Pixi Lip and Line but the color does not suit me at all. I did like the hair creme and the razor but the fragrance and skin cream where just so, so.
Did you get a Birchbox this month? What did you think of your samples?
