Today is Birchbox day! I tore my box open and dug in immediately.
Here’s what I got:
Zoya Nail Polish in “Shay”
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser
Ahava Mineral Hand Cream
Redken Shine Flash
Bonus: Kind Almond & Apricot Fruit and Nut Bar
For this month’s box, Birchbox asked designer Cynthia Rowley to share some of her favorite products with us. Hence the Cynthia Rowley sleeve on the outside of the Birchbox.
After the last two month’s stellar boxes, I wasn’t really that impressed by this month’s box. Nothing really jumped out at me and had me saying “Whoa!”. The only thing that really grabbed me was the mini Zoya polish. I like their nail polish and Shay is a nice light nudish pink color.
I know a lot of people will be excited for the Philosophy Purity but I myself don’t really care for their products that much. Some of them tend to cause breakouts for me so I’m always leery to try their stuff.
All in all I’d say July’s Birchbox was just so-so. Nothing really bad but nothing really great either. Oh well, that’s the chance you take with things like Birchbox. Some months you may have a winner and some months maybe not so much. This will only make me look forward to August’s box more!
